What is Morpheus8? The Revolutionary New Way to Rejuvenate Skin

Micro-needling has been around for decades and it’s more popular now than ever. When
you consider the numerous benefits, it’s clear why so many people make it a part of their
regular beauty routine. As wonderful as micro-needling is, Morpheus8 is even better! This
minimally invasive procedure is a form of micro-needling but differs in that the device
penetrates deeper into the skin and uses radiofrequency technology, leading to more
impressive results.

Is Morpheus8 Permanent?

What is Morpheus8? The Revolutionary New Way to Rejuvenate Skin | Vitalize Medical & Aesthetics

Let’s review how Morpheus8 works before we answer this important question. Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production and leads to a natural anti-aging process by targeting deeper layers of the skin. This treatment is especially
unique because it can penetrate different depths depending on your skin concerns. This technique allows for skin rejuvenation, tightening, resurfacing, fat reduction and body contouring. Commonly treated areas include the face and neck. Additional areas such as the stomach or thighs can be treated as well.

So how long does Morpheus8 last? Like many other beauty treatments, it won’t last
forever. As we get older, we are active in the aging process. The clock is still ticking
despite any and every procedure performed. However, depending on your specific skin
type, you can expect to see results lasting anywhere from 1-3 years! Longer-lasting results
depend on your current health condition, lifestyle, diet and exercise. Morpheus8 is
minimally invasive and doesn’t lead to any major disruption of your day-to-day life. It’s
easy to repeat treatments and maintain consistent results over time if you wish to do so.
We usually recommend a maintenance visit to maintain results over time.

The Benefits of Morpheus8 Treatment

This treatment is beneficial for many different people because it helps target various skin
concerns. A consultation will help you understand exactly what the treatment can do for
you. Listed below are some of the reasons people seek out Morpheus8.

Morpheus8 and Acne

While micro-needling does not prevent acne, it does help treat existing scarring and
discoloration from previous acne. Morpheus8 has the added benefit of radiofrequency
energy to stimulate new collagen. A series is recommended in order to achieve the best

Morpheus8 Skin Tightening 

This treatment helps improve the overall appearance of saggy jowls, wrinkles, double
chin, and cellulite by tightening the skin. While results from one treatment can be
noticeable, continual treatments provide the most noticeable results.

Morpheus8 Under Eyes

Morpheus8 is recognized as the best non-surgical treatment for under-eye wrinkles. These
types of wrinkles are often one of the biggest insecurities for people as they age.
Thankfully, this treatment can make a lasting impact and instill confidence again!

Morpheus8 Stretch Marks

Morpheus8 helps reduce scarring, and stretch marks are certainly no exception. Stretch
marks are slightly different from other types of scars. They’re caused when skin stretches
or shrinks too quickly, leading collagen and elastin to break down over time. While other
scars typically sit on top of the skin, stretch marks are more accurately described as “in”
the skin.
Depending on the severity of laxity and overall skin quality, the number of appointments
needed for effective stretch mark treatment varies.

Morpheus8 and Hyperpigmentation

The amino acids in collagen help hyperpigmentation fade over time. They help provide
structure and strength to the skin, aiding in the repair of damaged skin cells. Since
Morpheus8 helps boost natural collagen production, it’s been shown to help
hyperpigmented skin and improve skin texture.

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s clear from the above information that Morpheus8 is a beauty treatment that can fit into
your life with ease while addressing a wide variety of skin concerns. But it’s not unusual to
still have questions about the treatment. Listed below are the commonly asked questions.

Is Morpheus8 like a facelift?

While facelifts are relatively common beauty procedures, they’re very invasive, have long
recovery times, and lead to disruptions to day-to-day life since time off is needed to heal.
Morpheus8 is distinct from a facelift since it’s minimally invasive and typically requires no
downtime. It’s similar to a facelift when you consider the results you can expect to see.
While the results won’t be as dramatic, both treatments lead to smoother, firmer facial
appearances aimed to lead to a more youthful look overall. 

Should I choose Morpheus8 or fillers?

The wonderful thing about Morpheus8 is that it can be combined with other beauty
treatments. Fillers, Sculptra, Botox, and Hydrafacials are frequently used in combination to
achieve the best result. Talk to your provider to better understand the time needed in
between each treatment.  

Is Morpheus8 or micro-needling better?

While Morpheus8 penetrates deeper into the skin and has more advantages
overall, micro-needling is also a great treatment option to consider. Combination
treatments are best to achieve the ultimate result. If you’re unsure which treatment is right
for you, we will discuss your skin concerns at your consultation to find a solution that

individualized care.

What is Morpheus8 recovery like?

The recovery process is typically simple but there are some key things you’ll need to know
prior to your treatment. First, you must discontinue the use of retinols and glycolic acids at
least 1 week prior to treatment. Second, avoid direct exposure to sunlight, tanning beds,
and sunless tanning sprays. You should use broad-spectrum sunscreen every day. Sun
exposure is the number one cause of aging. Daily sunscreen use helps reduce the risk of
developing skin cancer and slows the aging process.
