What is a Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a revolutionary, FDA-approved device that combines the benefits of microneedling and fractionated radio frequency (Rf) to create firmer and tighter skin on your face and neck. Morpheus8 is minimally invasive, safe, non-surgical, and has almost no downtime.

Morpheus8 uses a matrix of micro pins that create tiny puncture wounds in the superficial dermis. This stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and new skin cells. The addition of radiofrequency energy that is transmitted during this process sends electric currents deep into your skin which actually reorganizes the building blocks of your skin for a natural anti-aging treatment.

Is this a dream come true? The makers of Morpheus8, inMode, named the device after the character Morpheus, the hacker-mentor of Neo in The Matrix because of the treatment uses a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin. Also, The Matrix character was named after Morpheus, the Greek God of Dreams, so maybe Morpheus8 could be a dream come true!

What to Expect During the Procedure

The Morpheus8, a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device, SARD, uses 24 needles to deliver an electric current which cause the molecules deep in your skin to rotate. This rotation creates heat in the tissues which hyper-activate your collagen production.

Since Morpheus8 needles are thinner than traditionally microneedling needs, they are able to go deeper, up to 4 mm. During a Morpheus 8 treatment, your provider at L&P Aesthetics is able to adjust the microneedles to a depth your skin can tolerate. The deeper the needles go, the more collagen can be stimulated

Why L&P and Conditions That the Morpheus8 Treats

If you get your Morpheus8 treatments before your skin becomes looseness or accumulates a lot of sun damage, you can stave-off further signs of aging and maintain a youthful look for decades. It is impossible to over-tighten the skin or get too many Morphus8 treatments.

This minimally-invasive technique targets everything from the texture to the tightness, including:

  • Divots from acne scarring
  • Active acne
  • Poor skin texture
  • Sun damage
  • Deep lines and creases
  • Mild sagging or jowling
  • Enlarged pores
  • Stretch marks

Facelift Neck Lift before and after treatment

#1 L&P Signature Facelift

This patient had out L&P Signature Deep Plane Facelift and Neck Lift with tissue contouring, a lower blepharoplasty, a limited fat transfer, and a chin implant. Yes, that is a handful of procedures, but look at how natural her outcome is. We wanted to focus on maintaining volume while contouring deep tissues for a youthful appearance.

#3 L&P Signature Facelift

Our gorgeous practice manager got her own L&P Signature Facelift and Neck Lift. It is easy to say that no one needs a facelift, which is true, but these results bring back confidence that our patients have been missing for years. She looks so natural and beautiful with her glow up from Drs. Lieberman and Parikh.

Recovery and Beyond

The providers at L&P Aesthetics will ensure that you have a relatively pain-free procedure. They will numb your skin for an hour and a half before treatment and offer you ProNox®, a self-delivery nitrous oxide system that relieves physical and emotional discomfort. If you’re interested in ProNox®, let your provider know this during your consultation for skin tightening with Morpheus 8 or any of our other innovative devices.

Morpheus8 FAQs

Regardless of your age or gender or skin type, you could be a good candidate for Morphus8. For optimal results, we usually recommend a package of three treatments with four to six weeks in between.

For people with Skin Type 5 and 6, we recommend this pretreatment procedure.

Also, there are some contraindications you should be aware of before getting Morpheus8:

  • The treatment will melt dermal fillers so it is advised to get filler after the treatment, not before.
  • You must be off blood thinners for at least six months to safely receive treatment.
  • You must also be off Accutane for at least six months to safely receive treatment.
  • If you have metal dental implants or retainers, you cannot get the treatment.

Morpheus8 is often combined with FaceTite or AccuTite treatments. The combination is referred to as EmbraceRF enhances the final outcome of by resurfacing and sculpting adipose tissue to support youthful facial contours.

Morpheus8 can also be combined with dermal fillers, although you must get the filler after the treatment. Great skincare is always recommended for any treatment at L&P Aesthetics.

Skin redness and slight swelling are expected for 1-3 days post-treatment but this can often be covered with makeup. Very rare side-effects include crusting, blistering, hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, and scarring.

Most likely, you will notice your skin getting firmer almost immediately after the treatment but the most results will be apparent between 2-3 weeks afterwards. The production of new collagen and elastin will keep happening over the next three months, so you will continue to see improvements. However 2-3 treatments may be necessary for optimal results.
