Answers to Your Most Important Questions About Morpheus8
Get all of your questions answered with this Morpheus8 Q&A! It’s the exciting new FDA approved treatment that is being called the best non-surgical facelift!
Everyone wants to know the pros and cons of this fabulous new skincare treatment, so we are devoting this blog to answer your most pressing questions. To start, Morpheus8 is a safe and minimally invasive treatment. It is intended to remodel subdermal layers of the skin by stimulating collagen production. It also helps eliminate unwanted pockets of fat beneath the surface resulting in tightening, lifting, and contouring of the skin.
It is not limited to the face only. It can be used on most parts of the body! Although a few treatments are generally recommended, the process can deliver results even after only one.
What is Facial Fractional Radiofrequency Microneedling?
The technique is actually two procedures that, when combined, result in smoother, healthier skin. Morpheus8 is the first subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) that uses radiofrequency (RF) micro-needling. RF energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production to remodel the skin and reorganize it in a natural anti-aging procedure.
Is it Safe?
The Morpheus8 treatment is considered a safe procedure by plastic surgeons because it integrates safeguards such as real-time skin and fat temperature measurements. It also has an automatic power cut-off setting that will prevent skin from burning or tissue damage if the mechanism receives too much energy during the treatment.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Morpheus8 is one of the best procedures for patients who want to reduce the signs of aging without undergoing more invasive treatments, such as a facelift. The technology is color-blind and can be used on all skin types, making everyone a good candidate. This means that the only criteria for being an ideal candidate are those who are in good health, can take time off for a couple of days, and have the financial resources.
What Are the Benefits of Morpheus8?
For starters, the procedure has been cleared by the FDA, which makes it the only technology to penetrate subdermal tissue with a thermal profile. Plus, it is customizable and can be tailored to each individual. The results are reduced fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture, and tightened skin. It’s a total confidence booster!

- Helps lighten undereye circles
- Minimal downtime
- Long-lasting results
Is the Morpheus8 Treatment Painful?
Morpheus8 is considered a tolerable procedure as the sterilized, sharp microneedles puncture the skin. It may feel like a slight prickling sensation, followed by a warm sensation due to the RF frequency. Numbing creams will help reduce any discomfort during the procedure.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
The length of the treatment depends on the areas of the skin being treated. For example, if the abdomen is being targeted, it will likely take longer than treating the face. Either way, it is not a lengthy procedure.
It starts with a local anesthetic cream applied to cleansed skin, which will minimize any discomfort. This step will take about 30 to 45 minutes to ensure the skin is adequately numbed. Afterward, the treatment will take about 30 to 60 minutes. So in total, from start to finish, it will take 1 to 2 hours.
What You Can Expect After Your Treatment
As the skin continues to age, it does so from the new baseline, unlike other treatments that provide a more temporary fix. Please don’t misunderstand what we are saying. Fillers and other injectables definitely have their place. But Morpheus8 is a longer-term skincare solution which is why it is called the nonsurgical facelift!
Are Morpheus8 Treatments Budget-Friendly?
Compared to a surgical facelift or other procedures, Morpheus8 is much more affordable. The average price of a facelift can range from $30,000 to $100,000, which doesn’t always include the cost of anesthesia.
Morpheus8 treatments cost between $1,200 and $4,000, depending on the size and amount of areas treated. So yes, some consider it a budget-friendly treatment, particularly in light of the expected results and compared to other procedures.
How Long is the Downtime After the Procedure?
Most people can resume normal daily activities following the procedure. Typically, there will be mild bruising, swelling, or reddened skin, which will generally disappear the next day. We recommend avoiding exposing the treated area to direct sunlight for a few hours following the procedure. Also, avoid scrubbing or rubbing the skin, as it will be sensitive – like a sunburn. In fact, use a zinc oxide sunblock (SPF 30 or higher) for the first 24-48 hours if you need to go out. Makeup should not be used for 24 hours after the procedure. Skin care products can be resumed after 2-3 days.
How Quickly Will Results Appear?
Visible improvements will be noticeable within a few days. The longer-lasting results will appear when the collagen and elastin production processes take over. Improvements will continue for up to three months after the treatment. Although results may seem gradual, there will be a definite positive change to the skin. Our patients are always impressed.
