Morpheus8 is performed in our luxurious medical spa without the need for any incisions. During the consultation, our expert aestheticians go over the details of the procedure and what one can expect during and after the procedure.
On the day of the procedure, we begin by cleaning and prepping the area that will be treated. We typically provide topical numbing to minimize any discomfort as there is no need for general anesthesia or sedation for this procedure. Depending on patient need, we may provide an oral medication to help patients with the procedure.
The Morpheus 8 combines radiofrequency and microneedling to deliver the thermal energy of radiofrequency waves to the deeper layers of tissue. This is achieved using adjustable microneedles that impact the epidermis and the dermis. Radiofrequency promotes the production of collagen while creating small puncture wounds in the superficial dermis, all designed to stimulate collagen, elastin, and new skin cells.
The Morpheus8 procedure can take up to an hour to perform. The device causes small microneedles to penetrate the skin to allow radio frequency to deliver heat energy into the deepest layers of the skin.
