About Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is considered the leading RF Microneedling device in the industry based on its versatility and effectiveness. It is safe for all skin types and works toward skin tightening, improvement of fine lines and wrinkles, improvement of acne scarring and in the treatment of active acne. It is safe for all skin types and safe all year round. In fact, most people are candidates for Morpheus8.

How Does Morpheus8 Work?

Morpheus8 is a radiofrequency microneedling device. The treatment involves the use of ultra-fine, sterile microneedles that penetrate the skin, creating tiny channels. These microneedles simultaneously emit radiofrequency energy deep into the skin’s layers, stimulating collagen production and remodelling, resulting in a smoother, tighter and more youthful complexion.

What are the benefits of Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 has a countless number of benefits. The main outcome is tighter, firmer and more youthful looking skin. Morpheus8 treatments can be applied on the face, neck and body. At Shine MD, the main goals for our patients are for facial rejuvenation, targeting skin laxity and fine lines and texture. Deeper settings can slim areas in the lower face and neck area, more classically known as the jowls and double chin area. There are also protocols that can help decrease active acne by heating the sebaceous glands and killing bacteria. For our acne patients, this can be an effective treatment for both active acne and acne scarring.

Morpheus8 for Facial Rejuvenation

Morpheus8 is a device that is well known for its power to make the skin look tighter and smoother. Treatments around the eye area have the power of decreasing skin laxity in the upper brow area and under eye area. Settings and depth can be adjusted to target the adipose (fat) tissue in the lower face, jawline and neck area to help improve the tightness of the jawline and neck area, while dissolving fat in the fuller areas of the lower face. Combined with AccuTite (non surgical face and neck lift), it will yield even more powerful results.

Morpheus8 for Acne Scarring

Morpheus8 is a very effective treatment for many kinds of acne scarring. Rolling scars, box car scars and ice pick scars are all effectively improved with the use of Morpheus8. Morpheus8 for acne scarring can be performed alone or in conjunction with PRP and subcision and Halo laser treatment. The Gold Standard for acne scarring at Shine MD consists of PRP, Subcision and Halo. We are seeing even better results when Morpheus8 is added during this process.

Morpheus8 Combination Treatments

At Shine MD, we are experts in combining (stacking) treatments that will improve your results even further. This puts us at the forefront of establishing modern and innovative laser protocols that are guaranteed to move your skin in a positive direction.

Morpheus8 and Halo laser performed on the same day, is a safe treatment for all skin types and offers a powerful approach of improving fine lines, acne scars and pigmentation. The Halo laser also won the New Beauty Award for Best Multitasking Laser in 2023. This combination can be performed alone or in combination with platelet rich plasma treatment to further improve your results and decrease healing time.

Morpheus8 and AccuTite (non surgical face and neck lift) is a common combination that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and improve texture. This combination targets the under eye area, lower face, jowls and chin to give results that are the next best thing to plastic surgery without the downtime, cost and invasiveness of surgery itself.

What is Morpheus8 Treatment Like?

Morpheus8 treatment involves a series of passes over the desired treatment area with a square tip handpiece that contains insulated radiofrequency microneedles. Topical numbing is applied prior to the treatment to provide comfort. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is available at the bedside also to give you more comfort as needed. In some cases, nerve blocks or injectable anesthesia is administered by the physician or nurse practitioner. The Morpheus8 treatment is associated with moderate discomfort and tends to be perceived variably by each patient. Be assured, you will be supported along the way, the discomfort is manageable and results are worth it.

Is There Any Downtime with Morpheus8?

Downtime with Morpheus8 varies. Mild redness and swelling are common after the procedure but typically subsides within a few days. Patients can resume their regular activities shortly after the treatment, making Morpheus8 a convenient option for those with busy lifestyles.

What Results Can I Expect with Morpheus8 Treatment?

Results for Morpheus8 include improved skin texture and tightness, decreased fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars. Morpheus8 can be performed around the eyes, improving a droopy brow area, can provide under eye tightening and reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the under eye area. At certain settings, Morpheus8 can decrease the presence of fat in the nasolabial folds, jawline and chin area. Results tend to improve over the three to six months following a series of treatments.
