About Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is a radiofrequency treatment that includes non-invasive microneedling and can take years off the face and body in a single session. Morpheus8 combines the benefits of microneedling and radiofrequency energy, allowing it to rapidly treat the most common signs of aging. Further, it produces these effects all without any invasive surgery or any significant downtime.

The Morpheus8 system produces radiofrequency energy from each needle. As the needle penetrates the skin, it stimulates the healing and regeneration response from the body. With this juggernaut combination, Morpheus8 takes years off the skin while simultaneously stimulating new collagen and skin cells, restoring the youthful, glowing, and vibrant look of the skin.

The benefits of Morpheus8

Dr. Starkman uses Morpheus8 RF Microneedling on his patients to treat the following signs of aging throughout their bodies:

  • Fine lines
  • Deep creases
  • Frown lines
  • Sagging cheeks or jowls
  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Wrinkles on the knees
  • Acne scars
  • Sagging skin on the abdomen
  • Trauma scars, acne scars, or stretch marks

What to expect during Morpheus8

During Morpheus8 treatment, the first step is to apply topical numbing cream to ensure the procedure is comfortable.

Next, Dr. Starkman will custom-fit the Morpheus8 handpiece with needles and head appropriate to your personalized treatment. Once treatment begins, you will feel a slight warming sensation as Dr. Starkman guides the handpiece over the treatment area.

Following treatment, your skin may look slightly sunburnt, although that effect will diminish over the following several days. Patients may apply makeup after 24 hours of the procedure to hide redness. Primarily, patients report minimal to no discomfort during the days following Morpheus8 radiofrequency treatment, and the results ultimately become a shining representation of the procedure.

Am I a candidate for Morpheus8?

In most cases, candidacy for Morpheus8 simply depends upon the cosmetic issues one wants to address. Patients who would like to see significant improvement in their skin without the downtime of surgery can benefit from Morpheus8. Typically, Morpheus8 patients are in their 30s, 40s, and 50s and are seeking renewal and tightening of their skin.

Additionally, they may be seeking cosmetic relief from acne scars that have not responded to other treatments. Morpheus8 may not be right for patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, smokers, or have any serious medical condition.

How is Morpheus8 different from other radiofrequency microneedling treatments?

Morpheus 8 is a technology that offers unrivaled skin rejuvenation compared to other treatment modalities. Unlike other radiofrequency microneedling devices, Morpheus 8 uses patent-protected bipolar technology that transmits from the tip of the microneedle pin back to the base of the handpiece. This direction of RF energy allows for perpendicular skin tightening in the direction that we desire for skin rejuvenation.

Other bipolar devices transmit RF energy between the pin tips, but not back through the thickness of the skin. Also, Morpheus 8 offers a depth of needle penetration up to 4 mm and treatment depth of 5 mm. At this maximum depth, Morpheus 8 not only treats the full thickness of skin, but also melts the layer of subcutaneous fat just beneath the skin.
