What Is Morpheus8™?

Morpheus8™ by InMode is an advanced radiofrequency microneedling treatment that improves skin tone and texture and sculpts adipose tissue. This state-of-the-art technology can recontour, plump, and tighten the skin for a more youthful appearance without surgery. By combining two effective technologies—microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy—Morpheus8™ smoothes and tightens skin with dramatic results. This revolutionary treatment stimulates rapid collagen production that continues to work long after treatment for healthier and tighter-looking skin.

Cohn Plastic Surgery offers Morpheus8™ in South Birmingham, Alabama, at its Vestavia Hills Medspa.

What Are the Benefits of Morpheus8™?

The RF energy that Morpheus8™ remodels skin by sculpting adipose tissue (fat), while its advanced microneedling technique allows the device to penetrate deeper into the skin than other treatments.

This treatment can reach the subdermal tissue to promote comprehensive, abundant, and rapid collagen production. This results in skin that is:

  • Tighter
  • Smoother
  • Plumper
  • Younger-looking

What Areas Can Morpheus8™ Treat?

Morpheus8™ can treat facial skin as well as numerous areas of the body, including:

  • Jowls
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs

Am I a Candidate for Morpheus8™?

Morpheus8™ is safe for all skin types and can treat several concerns, such as:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Deep creases
  • Poor skin texture
  • Large pores
  • Sun damage
  • Discoloration
  • Acne scarring
  • Stretch marks

A consultation with one of our estheticians can best determine if the Morpheus8™ treatment is right for you. Individuals who smoke are more likely to experience adverse side effects from this procedure.

How Does Morpheus8™ Work?

A local anesthetic is applied topically before treatment to ensure comfort. Your esthetician then places the Morpheus8™ device on affected areas and applies a specific amount of pressure according to your customized treatment plan.

This process is repeated for each treatment area, delivering RF energy precisely to the appropriate skin depth.

Adding RF energy to microneedling (collagen induction therapy) increases collagen production considerably more than other similar treatments to tighten and recontour skin and underlying tissue.

Morpheus8™ treatment is usually completed in approximately 45 minutes, with results beginning to appear within three weeks as new collagen gradually transforms your skin. Your final outcome should be visible in three months.

What Is Recovery Like After Morpheus8™?

Morpheus8™ treatment is minimally invasive, requires no incisions, and little, if any, downtime. There will be some mild bleeding immediately after your procedure that will subside within minutes. Most patients can resume their normal daily activities within 24 hours of treatment.

Minor swelling and redness may occur but should last only a few days. It is essential to wear moisturizer and sunscreen after your procedure, as dryness and sun exposure can lead to irritation in the treated areas.

You should avoid wearing makeup for the first 48 hours.

How Long Do Morpheus8™ Results Last?

You can expect your Morpheus8™ results to last about a year, so annual maintenance treatments are advised to continue delaying the appearance of common signs of aging.
