Morpheus8 is a skin treatment designed to enhance collagen production in the underlying layers of the dermis, with a particular focus on the SMAS layer. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, this treatment remodels facial and body tissues to reveal a more youthful and radiant appearance. The objective is to activate fibroblast cells, which convert the building blocks of collagen into collagen fibres, giving our skin its elasticity.

InMode’s Morpheus8 treatment combines two methods: Micro needling and Radio Frequency stimulation through heat. Micro needling involves tiny needles that puncture the skin while Radio Frequency technology adds heat to the process. These treatments work together to tighten and contour the skin and/or fat underneath the skin while stimulating the skin’s natural healing process and fibroblast cells. The treatment is adaptable depending on the patient’s specific concerns. Lower settings improve skin texture, tighten skin, and diminish scars, while more powerful settings sculpt the fat under the skin, enhance facial features, lift jowls, and restore volume.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers about morpheus 8

Morpheus 8 can be used to treat various areas of the face and body. It is commonly used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin texture, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation.

Facial areas that can be treated with Morpheus 8 include the forehead, cheeks, jawline, neck, and around the eyes. It can also be used to treat the skin on the body, such as the arms, abdomen, thighs, and knees.

Morpheus 8 is a versatile treatment that can be tailored to each patient’s specific needs and concerns. Dr Reham can help determine which areas would benefit most from the treatment during your consultation.

Prior to treatment, every patient will have a consultation to discuss their concerns and assess their suitability for the procedure. During this consultation, the treatment plan will be thoroughly explained, and the patient’s consent will be obtained. 

The duration of the procedure will vary depending on the areas being treated, typically ranging from 30-60 minutes. A topical numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area before the procedure to minimise discomfort. During the Morpheus 8 treatment, tiny needles are used to penetrate the skin at various depths, delivering radio frequency energy to the underlying layers of skin. This energy heats the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which results in firmer, smoother skin. 

After the treatment, detailed aftercare instructions will be provided, including advice on moisturising and protecting the treated area with SPF.

The number of Morpheus 8 treatment sessions needed varies depending on the patient’s specific concerns and the areas being treated. Most patients achieve noticeable results after just one treatment, but some may require multiple sessions for optimal results.

The treatment plan will be tailored to each patient’s individual needs, and your healthcare provider will be able to advise you on the number of sessions needed to achieve your desired outcome. Generally, a course of 2-4 treatments spaced several weeks apart is recommended to achieve the best possible results.

The time it takes to see results from Morpheus 8 can vary depending on the individual and the areas being treated. Some patients may notice an improvement in their skin texture and appearance immediately following the treatment. However, it can take up to several weeks or months for full results to be visible as collagen production continues to increase and the skin’s natural healing process takes effect.

The results of Morpheus 8 can last for several months to a year or more, depending on the patient’s age, skin condition, and lifestyle factors such as sun exposure and smoking. It is important to maintain a healthy skin care routine and protect the skin from UV rays to prolong the results. Regular maintenance treatments may also be recommended to help maintain the desired outcome.

Morpheus 8 is generally considered safe and well-tolerated by most patients. However, there are some contraindications that may prevent a patient from receiving the treatment.

Contraindications for Morpheus 8 include:

  • Active skin infections or skin disorders in the treatment area
  • Open wounds or lesions in the treatment area

Yes, Morpheus 8 can be combined with other treatments to enhance the results and achieve more comprehensive rejuvenation.

Morpheus 8 is often used in combination with other non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as injectables (such as Botox and dermal fillers), chemical peels, and laser treatments to achieve optimal results. The combination of treatments can address multiple concerns and provide a more comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation.

Morpheus 8 has minimal patient downtime, and patients can usually apply makeup 1 to 2 days after treatment. Some patients may experience micro lesions and slight redness, depending on the treatment parameters.

After the Morpheus 8 procedure, the treated area may appear red and flushed, similar to a moderate sunburn, and the skin may feel tight and sensitive to the touch. It is normal for the redness to diminish greatly within 24-72 hours following the treatment, and peeling of the skin may occur in certain areas of the face. Mild swelling is also normal with radiofrequency treatment and should subside within 24-72 hours.

While some patients may experience short-term pinkness or redness of the skin in the treated area, micro-bruising and a sandpaper-like texture to the skin are also common, usually lasting 2-7 days, although in some cases, they can last up to 2-4 weeks. After 3 days, the skin will typically return to a near-normal appearance.

Morpheus 8 treatments are carried out at the Cambridge practice, however consultations for the treatment can take place at either Cambridge or Bury St Edmunds. You can fill out my contact form and a member of my team will be in touch.

What people say?

I had an amazing experience during the Morpheus 8 treatment with Dr.Reham, she has explained to me the treatment in details , made sure the treatment was comfortable and as painless as possible. Dr. Reham is very gentle and thorough. I had treatment on my face, neck and stomach area. I started to see the improvements of the appearance of my skin fairly soon: fine lines less visible, skin feels more tight and fresh. My nasolabial lines/folds improved, skin around my jaws and chin looks more tight and lifted. Looking forward to further improvements:) . Very happy! Thank you Dr. Reham xx
