What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy (RF). Up to 24 tiny gold-plated needles enter the skin with each pulse and deliver RF energy deep into the dermis or below to get the maximum rejuvenating benefit. The RF energy shrinks the existing collagen, which firms the skin, and stimulates new collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. This causes further skin tightening and smoothing. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, tissues of the face and body can be remodeled to reveal a more radiant and youthful appearance.

Who is a Candidate for a Morpheus8 Procedure?
There is no particular age restriction for a Morpheus8 treatment, and there is no specific trait that defines a “good” candidate. Fundamentally, good candidates are patients who would like to repair sagging cheeks, deep facial lines, and small deposits of fat on the face and neck. In other words, those who wish to reverse the signs of facial aging represent ideal candidates for a Morpheus8 treatment. However, as always, the best candidates are in good physical health and have realistic expectations regarding the outcome of their treatment.

How is a Morpheus8 Procedure Performed at Davinci cosmetics?
During a Morpheus8 treatment, our team uses state-of-the-art technology to administer 24 silicone-coated needles beneath the skin and into the superficial fat. Once the needles are placed in the fat, the device delivers a pulse of radiofrequency energy that tightens the soft tissue, coagulates the fat, and stimulates the production of elasticin and collagen. In doing so, the needles effectively contour the face and body via subdermal adipose remodeling, resulting in a sleeker and smoother appearance. Morpheus is like an RF needle-based facelift, administered without a scalpel and from the “outside-in”.
What to Expect After a Morpheus8 Procedure
Following their Morpheus8 treatment, patients can expect to recover for 5-7 days while minor swelling and redness resolve. However, they will be pleased to know that, unlike traditional laser procedures, there is no significant crusting, oozing or weeping after a Morpheus8 treatment. In addition, some patients may even see facial skin improvement immediately after their treatment session.
Best Procedures Paired with Morpheus8
A Morpheus8 treatment is typically paired with a Medical Grade Skincare program, Botox injectables and dermal soft tissue fillers. In fact, a Morpheus8 treatment is specifically designed to enhance the results of these procedures.
As a result of the topical anesthetic cream and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) involved in the procedure, there is no discomfort involved in a Morpheus8 treatment.
As a Morpheus8 treatment is considered to be a very thorough procedure, patients can expect the results to last for several years. Over time, non-surgical treatments such as the Evoke, Forma V and Fractora can be used to maintain the results of the Morpheus8.
Absolutely! A Morpheus8 treatment is perfectly safe for all skin types. In fact, the treatment is ideal for patients with darker skin, as the risk of thermal damage is significantly reduced.
