Morpheus8 Full Body Fractional Remodeling: A Beginners Guide

By December 27, 2021May 2nd, 2023Dermatology

If you’ve ever searched the web for ways to deal with dead skin build-up, acne, and wrinkles, you have probably come across an article recommending radiofrequency microneedling. Radiofrequency microneedling is a procedure that rejuvenates the skin using a combination of small needles and radiofrequency waves. There are many RF microneedling devices on the market, but the preferred microneedling device of The Dermatology Clinic is the Morpheus8 by InMode.

What Does Morpheus8 Treatment Do?

The Morpheus8 uses minimally invasive microneedling for full-body subdermal adipose tissue remodeling. It offers the deepest fractional treatment (8mm) that the FDA has approved.

The Morpheus8 comes with two handpieces. One is meant explicitly for smaller treatment areas such as the face, and the other is meant for larger surfaces that need deeper tissue treatment, such as the legs or stomach. Intelligent programmable technology powers the Morpheus8 to make the handheld devices more intuitive to use for doctors.

Morpheus8 needling works by deploying bipolar radiofrequency energy to different levels under the skin simultaneously. This sequential targeting of the tissue at three levels reduces the treatment time, minimizes skin injury, and ensures uniform treatment.

Advantages of Morpheus8 Treatment

Morpheus8 RF microneedling is beneficial because it combines two treatment methods. First, microneedling resurfaces the skin by creating tiny lacerations that aren’t visible to the human eye. They are uniformly spaced and do not harm the skin. Second, these microscopic lesions undergo a process called controlled wound healing which rejuvenates the skin cells. The treated area creates more collagen and remodels the tissue. This results in more radiant and healthy skin.

The relay of radiofrequency energy into the dermis contributes further to collagen production and tissue coagulation. The stimulation results in tighter skin without stretch marks and wrinkles. Morpheus8 treatment is safe and has received FDA approval. Compared to a rhytidectomy (facelift), this is a much less invasive procedure. Most patients report a full recovery from the procedure within five to seven days.

What Can Patients Expect From Morpheus8 Treatment?

The results from Morpheus8 treatment can be witnessed immediately after the procedure is done. Additionally, as healing progresses and the tissue produces more collagen, the results get even better.

Patients that have fine lines and wrinkles benefit from collagen stimulation leading to a smoother skin appearance. Morpheus8 microneedling also helps with uneven skin tone. The radiofrequency stimulation leads to the breaking down of hyperpigmented cells allowing new cell growth. During the process, dead skin cells are eliminated, thus improving skin texture.
