Morpheus8 At L&P Aesthetics
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!
If you are interested in firmer, smoother and more glowing skin, get in touch with our Palo Alto or Los Gatos offices at L&P Aesthetics by (650) 327-3232 or email to schedule a consultation with one of our Morpheus8 providers.
What Conditions Does Morpheus8 Treat?
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
What Is The Difference Between Morpheus8 And MicroNeedling?
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.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Morpheus8?
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 XXX, 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 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.
Is Morpheus8 Painful?
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.
What Is The Downtime And When Will I See Results?
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.
