Morpheus 8

Revitalise your skin with
Morpheus 8

A combination of Radiofrequency and Microneedling. Targeting wrinkles, acne scarring, and skin laxity on face, neck, chest and beyond.

What is Morpheus 8?

Morpheus 8 introduces a groundbreaking fractional microneedle radiofrequency (RF) technology which facilitates the stimulation of collagen production, skin remodeling, texture enhancement, and an overall tightening effect.

Morpheus 8 creates microchannels to enhance heat energy delivery, stimulating collagen growth. Its remarkable penetration capability, reaching depths of up to 5mm in the face. This versatile treatment can be applied to various areas like the face, neck, chest, and even around the eyes and mouth, where fine lines are more pronounced due to ageing.

This extensive reach ensures effective collagen stimulation across all skin layers and enables fat reduction as well.

It is suitable for all skin types, making it particularly advantageous for Asian skin and even patients prone to hyperpigmentation risks with other treatments. Morpheus 8 boasts various modes within its platform, allowing healthcare providers to tailor treatment plans based on patients’ unique needs and characteristics.

How does Morpheus 8 work?

Diving deep into both skin and fat layers, this procedure transforms the ageing face, yielding a desired smoother and sleeker appearance suitable for all skin tones. 

Employing a diverse array of needle tips equipped with small semi-insulated needles, this technique bypasses the skin barrier to administer radio frequency energy ranging from 0.5 to 7mm beneath the skin’s surface, offering a fully personalised treatment experience.

What can you expect from our Morpheus 8 treatment?

Before Treatment

Your face will be cleansed thoroughly prior to the Morpheus 8 treatment. Numbing cream will be applied to the treatment areas.

During Treatment

The Morpheus 8 device will deliver short pulses of radio frequency energy via small semi-insulated needles at specific depths ranging from 0.5 to 7mm beneath the skin's surface. This causes an immediate collagen contraction followed by regeneration. Discomfort is minimal, although you may experience a slight prickling sensation during the treatment.

After Treatment

Expect a slight downtime after a Morpheus 8 treatment session. Your skin will appear red and swollen after treatment, but this typically goes down in the following days as your skin heals. Post treatment creams will be provided to help with the healing.

Details of Morpheus 8 treatment

Morpheus 8 treatment usually requires 3 sessions 4-6 weeks apart. The duration for each session is 60-90 minutes.

Visible outcomes may occur within a week, varying by individual. Optimal results typically emerge after 4 weeks, with collagen stimulation persisting for up to 6 months. Results can last for a year or more.

Price of Morpheus 8 treatment

The cost of Morpheus 8 treatments can vary depending on factors such as the provider’s location, the number of sessions required, the size of the treatment area, and any additional services or packages offered. A single Morpheus 8 treatment session from our clinic starts at $1000.

What is the post-treatment aftercare like for Morpheus 8?

  • As the skin develops open micro-channels post-treatment, we advise refraining from touching or cleansing the treated area for 6 hours to allow these channels to close, minimising the risk of introducing unwanted bacteria. Following this period, you may cleanse your face with a gentle facial wash.
  • You may apply makeup and sunscreen the next day.
  • Maintain twice-daily application of a gentle cleanser and healing cream for approximately 7-10 days post-treatment. It’s normal for your skin to feel dry as it heals, and experiencing redness and swelling is also common.
  • Avoid any excess heat, strenuous exercise, or sun exposure for the remainder of the day.
  • Avoid any exfoliating products, harsh acids, and retinoids for about a week after your treatment.
  • Wear and reapply sunscreen whenever necessary.

How does MORPHEUS 8 differ from these treatments? 

Morpheus 8 vs traditional microneedling

Morpheus 8 distinguishes itself from traditional microneedling by incorporating radiofrequency (RF) technology alongside microneedles. While traditional microneedling focuses solely on creating controlled micro-injuries to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture, Morpheus 8 adds the element of RF energy. This RF energy heats the deeper layers of the skin, further stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin. 

Additionally, Morpheus 8 allows for customisable treatment depths and can target multiple layers of the skin simultaneously, resulting in more comprehensive and efficient skin rejuvenation and skin tightening compared to traditional microneedling alone.

Morpheus 8 vs HIFU (or Ultherapy)

Morpheus 8 and HIFU/Ultherapy are both non-invasive treatments aimed at skin tightening and rejuvenation, but they differ in their mechanisms and target areas.

Morpheus 8 combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to deliver controlled thermal energy to deeper layers of the skin, promoting collagen production and tightening. In contrast, HIFU/Ultherapy utilises high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to target specific layers of tissue beneath the skin, triggering collagen production and resulting in skin tightening. While both treatments offer skin rejuvenation benefits, Morpheus 8 provides more customisable treatment depths and can address a wider range of skin concerns, while HIFU/Ultherapy is often preferred for more targeted lifting and tightening in specific areas such as the face and neck.

Morpheus 8 vs Thermage

Morpheus 8 and Thermage are both advanced non-invasive treatments for skin tightening and rejuvenation, but they differ in their technologies and treatment approaches.

Morpheus 8 utilises a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy to deliver controlled thermal energy deep into the skin, stimulating collagen production and improving skin texture and firmness. In contrast, Thermage relies on radiofrequency technology alone to deliver heat energy to the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen remodelling and tightening. While both treatments offer skin tightening benefits, Morpheus 8 typically provides more customisable treatment depths and can address a broader range of skin concerns, while Thermage is often favoured for its ability to deliver uniform heating to larger areas of the face and body in a single session.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Common side effects of Morpheus 8 treatment may include temporary redness, swelling, and mild discomfort in the treated area, which typically subside within a few days to a week.
