Aesthetics Q & A

What aesthetic services can the Morpheus8 system deliver?

The Morpheus8 platform is a subdermal device that works to improve the texture of your skin and tighten your facial contours. The technology behind the system is among the most innovative applications of laser therapy. 

Some of the skin concerns that can be improved with Morpheus8 include:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Spider veins
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne or acne scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Rosacea 
  • Sun damage
  • Freckles
  • Overall texture and tone

The Morpheus8 platform also performs laser hair removal and body contouring.

How do Morpheus8 treatments work?

The Morpheus8 system combines radiofrequency with microneedling to stimulate your natural healing response. While both treatments can create beautiful results, combining the power of the two takes your treatment to the next level. 

Microneedling works by creating numerous microscopic injuries in your skin. A handheld device covered in sterile, thin needles is moved across the surface of your face in a grid pattern.

Radiofrequency delivers carefully controlled thermal energy into the deeper layers of your skin. That heat prompts your natural healing response. 

Both treatments stimulate new collagen and elastin production. The new layer of cells smooths your skin, improving tone and texture as well as breaking apart areas of hyperpigmentation. 

Are Morpheus8 treatments painful?

There is no significant pain associated with microneedling with radiofrequency. A topical numbing cream is applied prior to your treatment. That reduces sensation during your treatment.

You may feel a degree of heat during your session. Some tingling or mild stinging sensations are also normal. After your appointment, you may experience some swelling and redness as well. If you experience sore or tender skin, taking over-the-counter pain medication is advised to manage discomfort. 

You begin to notice improvements in the weeks following your initial treatment. A series of treatments may be needed to achieve optimal results. Dr. Ennis evaluates your skin and discusses your treatment goals during your first visit. She then estimates how many treatments are needed to make the most of your experience with Morpheus8.
