What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 combines the technology of radiofrequency with the proven effects of microneedling. It’s the only device on the market that combines these two therapies. This minimally invasive procedure is your solution to remodel the fatty tissue just under your epidermis. It’s a rejuvenation process that tightens and tones your skin.
Morpheus8 treatments are commonly done on the face, but you can treat any part of your body that contains subdermal adipose tissue, or layer of fat located just under your skin.
Simple microneedling can reach skin depths of up to 2 millimeters. Morpheus8 can reach as deep as 7 millimeters. This means that fat layers can be reached. Some areas that can be treated to look firmer, tighter, and smoother include:
The various microneedling tips allow your provider the ability to customize your treatments. You can receive restoration to the delicate features of your face, including around your eyes, and to the larger surfaces of your belly and hips to:

Benefits of Morpheus8
There are many reasons why you should choose Morpheus8 over other skin-tightening procedures. Alternatively to a facelift or other procedures, Morpheus8 provides the same skin tightening with improved skin quality at a lower cost with faster recovery time and less risk without the need for anesthesia or sedation.
It’s a fact that you can’t beat gravity or aging and creams and lotions just won’t cut it in the long run. Use state-of-the-art technology to give your skin the best advantage for longevity and maintaining a youthful appearance.
- Speedy sessions: Morpheus8 treatments typically last 20-45 minutes, depending on treatment areas. Your provider will recommend a series of treatments to help you achieve the results you desire.
- Minimally invasive: Numbing cream is applied to the treatment area for 50 minutes prior to the procedure to ensure your comfort.
- Rapid results: Improvement in skin texture, tone, and tightness is typically seen after just one treatment! The radio frequency (RF) continues to work for the next 12 weeks, causing even more noticeable results. Optimal results are typically seen after three treatments, but your provider will recommend the number best for you and your goals.
Frequently Asked Questions
Radiofrequency, which has been used in medicine for over 100 years, provides deep, penetrating heat into your skin and creates a physiologic effect on your tissues.
This can increase your tissue’s metabolism and speed up fibroblast stimulation leading to increased collagen production and remodeling, which is needed to reduce the signs of aging as the amount of collagen in your skin significantly reduces with age, creating thin and wrinkled skin.
Morpheus8 was initially designed to treat facial wrinkles, but because of its effectiveness it can be used to treat other parts of your body.
All skin types for patients in their 30s to 50s will experience great results from Morpheuse8, especially for those with mild to moderate skin laxity. Some people use Morpheus8 at even younger ages as a preventative measure against future facelifts.
The numbing cream your provider uses will dull most of the pain you may experience. After your skin becomes desensitized, your provider will use a small hand-held device to apply the tip of the applicator to your skin. During your treatment, you will feel a slight prickling sensation from the microneedles.
Very few people report any pain during the procedure. Radiofrequency will produce some heat that you might feel, but it is rarely reported as bothersome.
Treatments are permanent and initial results have been seen for up to five years! Just be aware that skin continues to age naturally and thin over time, leading to loss of elasticity and more wrinkles, so maintenance is advised to continue to fight against the effects of aging.
Typically, treatments are spaced every 4 to 8 weeks, allowing your skin time to heal between treatments. Maintenance treatments are scheduled annually to help you maintain your results as time and gravity continue to wear on your skin.
You could return to work the same day after your treatment, but you should avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 hours and stay well moisturized for several days after the procedure. You’ll recover from a bit of redness and swelling, which will subside within a week and can be treated with ice application. You should also protect yourself from direct sunlight at this time.
There is a wide range of prices related to the cost of your care package with Morpheus8. Many factors contribute to the cost, including how many areas and how large your treatment areas are, what part of the country you live in, and the experience of your provider. After your consultation, your doctor will discuss with you all involved in your treatment and give you a more precise estimate of your first treatment application.
In general, you’ll find the price tag per session anywhere from $700 to $1,500 for an area the size of your face. As a comparison, a single facelift costs anywhere from $7,000 to $12,000. With Morpheus8, you pay a fraction of the cost with virtually no downtime to recover!
