What Is Morpheus8™?

May 02, 2022 | Morpheus8™, Non-Surgical Enhancement Treatments

2 Minute Read:

Whether from age or lifestyle, many men and women develop skin blemishes (such as wrinkles, fine lines, and scars) as well as skin laxity, which contributes to fat under the skin appearing more noticeable. 

These issues may be limited to the face or they may extend all over the body. Either way, these aesthetic issues can be frustrating.

Luckily, cosmetic treatments can help resolve some of these skin issues, including minimizing the appearance of skin blemishes and allowing you to have firmer, healthier, more contoured skin. And one of the most revolutionary cosmetic treatments is InMode’s Morpheus8™, which helps men and women gain a more youthful skin appearance.

How Does Morpheus8™ Work?

Morpheus8™ is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that uses a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency to help contour and smoothen the skin on your face and/or body. 

One of the reasons skin blemishes appear on our skin, especially as we age, is the reduction of collagen and elastin in our skin. Collagen and elastin are responsible for the strength, smoothness, and firmness of the skin. So, when collagen and elastin are lost, wrinkles form and the skin begins to sag. However, the two aspects of Morpheus8™ (microneedling and radiofrequency) help treat this loss of collagen and elastin.

With microneedling, tiny needles quickly penetrate the dermis (the upper layer of the skin) to create micro-injuries. Your body naturally heals these injuries, and one of the ways your body does this is by producing more collagen to strengthen the “damaged” skin. This collagen allows for your skin to be healthier and smoother than it was before the treatment.  

In addition to microneedling, Morpheus8™ uses radiofrequency energy to heat the layers of the skin to promote collagen and elastin production. 

Studies show that after Morpheus8™ treatment, patients have healthier, more youthful skin in the treatment area.

What Can Morpheus8™ Correct?

Morpheus8™ works by tightening and strengthening facial or body skin. The combined effectiveness of microneedling and radiofrequency makes it a game changer when it comes to skin care and skin health. 

Morpheus8™ can address and improve the presence of:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Large pores
  • Scars 
  • Lax or sagging skin

In addition to skin tightening, Morpheus8™ allows the fat under your skin to be sculpted to a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. This is due to the fact that your skin is rejuvenated and tightened by microneedling and radiofrequency. 

After your Morpheus8™ treatment, you will have smoother, clearer, and more youthful skin.
