Morpheus 8 is a machine that uses Radiofrequency and Microneedling. The device can improve skin laxity, stimulate collagen, dramatically reduce acne scars, improve discolouration and help facilitate remodelling of the tissues. It provides incredible, long-lasting results and is often referred to as a non-surgical facelift. Of course, nothing can compare to surgery, but the results are very impressive. Many other brands on the market do the same thing, but Morpheus 8 is the one that has seemed to catch everyone's attention and for good reason.
Morpheus 8 can be used anywhere on the body. Common areas to target are a double chin, jawline, nose to mouth lines, brow lift and abdomen. Imagine the device as something that is almost able to compress together the deepest layers of tissue to tighten and remodel them. The device will also improve the texture and tightness of the surface layer of the skin. Using the jawline as an example, 3 sessions of Morpheus 8 could dramatically reduce fat in the area, tighten the skin and remodel the jawline to look much more refined. The results, as seen below, really speak for themselves. There is little to no downtime post-treatment with a day or two of redness, and it is relatively comfortable with the right amount of numbing.
It works by Radiofrequency delivering heat to specific depths under the skin that causes a contraction and tightening of the tissue and stimulation of collagen. When taken to certain depths, it can also cause fat loss. All energy-based devices such as HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) and lasers utilise this concept of controlled energy delivery and remodelling. When Radiofrequency is combined with microneedling, you can deliver the radiofrequency through the needles. Morpheus 8 reaches deeper than all other machines on the market, which is why it can remodel the skin to such an extent. We can adjust the needle length to the area, which is how we are able to use it all over the body. It uses gold needles which conduct the energy extremely well.
Results last for up to 2 years and 3 sessions, around 4 weeks apart, are required to achieve these results. The best results are seen in those over 30 who have some skin laxity. Morpheus 8 is, however, suitable for all skin types. Everyone requires a consultation before having Morpheus 8, as some people may need some skin preparation before having the treatment.
