Morpheus8, manufactured by INMODE, is a device that combines micro-needling
with fractional radiofrequency. Like laser and LED treatments, radiofrequency uses
energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production, but the heat energy is electrical
rather than light-based.
The treatment takes 30-60 minutes depending on the area being treated. A topical
anaesthetic will be placed on the face for at least 30 minutes before the treatment.
After treatment, there is local skin redness (erythema), swelling (oedema), and the
sensation of heat that can last anywhere from 1-7 days. It is normal to have tiny
pinpoint scabs appear that can be masked 24 hours after treatment with makeup.
Visible results can be achieved 4-14 days post-treatment.
With the appropriate topical anaesthetic and enough time to let it work the anaesthetic
work, the treatment itself is almost pain-free. If needed patients can take non-steroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as Paracetamol or Ibuprofen in the first 24h
after the treatment.
Morpheus8 is a device that combines micro-needling with fractional radiofrequency,
therefore the working spectrum is broader and more “aggressive” (in a positive way)
than just Microneedling. Like laser and LED treatments, radiofrequency uses energy
to stimulate collagen and elastin production, but the heat energy is electrical rather
than light-based. The fractional radiofrequency can be delivered in different power
and depths of the skin and dermis (up to 4mm and deeper than any other device
on the market). This stimulates collagen production and induces skin rejuvenation
without damaging the top layer.
Morpheus8 is also the first and only full-body subdermal adipose remodelling device
(SARD). Despite being applied externally, it offers the deepest fractional technology,
allowing me to target deep layers of a patient’s skin and remodel collagen.
Does Morpheus8 really work?
Several clinical studies have shown a positive effect on Collagen and Elastin
production and Morpheus8 treats fine, moderate and deeper wrinkles, improves the
skin tone and texture and reduces scars, including acne scarring. Thousands of
patients worldwide will back this up.
