Our faces experience internal factors such as genetics, and external factors such as sun damage that change our appearance. Skin sagging and the development of deeper wrinkles are common complaints. These issues can not only affect our looks but can also cause problems with self-esteem and confidence. Thankfully, there are now minimally-invasive options for facial rejuvenation that don’t involve surgical procedures, making the entire process easier for the patient from start to finish.
Morpheus8 is a state-of-the-art, minimally-invasive needling system for significantly improving signs of aging in the face, neck and other areas of the body.
It can be used to correct numerous problem areas, including the following.
- Acne Scarring
- Surgical Scarring
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles
- Nasolabial Folds
- Neck Lines
- Poorly-Defined Jawline
- Prominent Jowls
- Skin Sagging
- Under-Eye Bags
- Uneven Texture
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
Morpheus8 not only targets the superficial layers of the skin, but also the deeper layers. Morpheus8 is increasingly being seen as a viable non-surgical alternative to the traditional facelift, addressing moderate to severe signs of aging. Furthermore, unlike many non-surgical laser skin resurfacing treatments, Morpheus8 is suitable for all skin types, including those who have darker skin tones. (1)
It’s not just the face that can be treated with Morpheus8. The Morpheus8 Body handpiece can be used to reduce skin sagging and improve texture in the following areas:
How Does Advanced Radiofrequency Needling Work?
Microneedling is a well-established technique that involves creating tiny punctures in the skin using fine needles. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, triggering collagen production and promoting healthy skin cell turnover. The addition of radiofrequency energy takes needling to the next level by delivering controlled heat deep into the dermal layer. This allows for precise targeting of the subdermal adipose tissue, which is responsible for sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles.
The Morpheus8 treatment works by utilizing slim insulated probes that penetrate the skin at varying depths, depending on the specific concerns being addressed. The radiofrequency energy is then delivered through these probes, heating the targeted tissues and stimulating collagen production from within. This deep tissue remodeling leads to significant improvements in skin laxity, texture, and overall appearance.
Patients who undergo Morpheus8 can expect to see noticeable improvements in their skin’s texture and tone. The treatment also promotes long-term collagen remodeling, which means that results continue to improve over time.

During a consultation with our experts, we will thoroughly evaluate your needs and goals to determine if Morpheus8 is the right treatment option for you. We will conduct a thorough examination of your skin, taking into account factors such as texture, elasticity, and any areas of concern. By assessing these aspects, we can determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you. As most patients will need more than one treatment to get the most effective results, we will inform you of the number of treatments required. Our team will provide personalized recommendations and explain the procedure in detail, ensuring that you are fully informed before making any decisions.
Before your treatment, we will give you detailed instructions to prepare for the procedure.

(2) The procedure is performed using topical anesthesia or light sedation to make the treatment as comfortable as possible throughout the process.
During the Morpheus8 treatment, the needles penetrate the skin, creating controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural healing response. At the same time, the radiofrequency energy is delivered deep into the dermis, promoting the production of collagen and elastin. This dual-action approach targets both the surface and deeper layers of the skin, resulting in a more youthful and revitalized appearance.
Recovery & Results
After the procedure, you may experience some redness, swelling, and mild bruising in the treated areas. These effects are temporary and typically resolve within a few days. There is generally no downtime associated with Morpheus8, allowing you to resume your regular activities shortly after the treatment. However, it is advisable to avoid strenuous activities or vigorous exercise until instructed otherwise by our experts.
Over time, as collagen production increases and skin regeneration occurs, you will notice gradual improvements in the firmness, smoothness, and overall quality of your skin. The results of Morpheus8 can be long-lasting, especially when combined with proper skincare maintenance and sun protection.

Morpheus8 is a more advanced technology that combines micro-needling with fractional radiofrequency energy for skin remodeling. This innovative treatment penetrates deeper into the skin, delivering heat to the underlying layers. By combining microneedling with radiofrequency, Morpheus8 can provide enhanced results compared to traditional microneedling alone. The controlled thermal energy promotes collagen production, tightens the skin, and improves texture and tone. There’s no downtime associated with Morpheus8, but you may experience a light sunburn feeling for an hour or two
