Morpheus8 is an FDA-approved skin treatment method that combines two proven technologies:
• Radiofrequency (RF) treatment — which uses controlled heat to tighten lax skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles
• Microneedling — which uses fine needles to prick the skin and stimulate new tissue growth, smoothing, firming, and evening complexion and minimizing scars and wrinkles.
In a Morpheus8 treatment, radiofrequency (RF) energy is emitted into the underlying skin while microneedling happens on the surface, combining the effects of the two technologies. Morpheus8 stimulates collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in the middle and lower layers of the skin proteins and compounds that help keep the skin on the surface looking young and fresh.
By reaching the skin’s deeper layers, Morpheus8 produces better results than either microneedling or RF treatments could do by themselves. Applying RF directly to the middle and lower levels of the skin also minimizes the risk of damaging the skin’s surface or triggering a hyperpigmentation response, which can be a drawback of other skin resurfacing treatments.
