Morpheus8 Treatment Process

Initial Consultation

Your journey begins with a personalized consultation to understand your skin concerns and tailor the treatment plan to your needs. Consultations are done by Double Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Eli Akbari, MD, FRCSC.

The Treatment Session

Step 1. Cleansing + Numbing

The first step involves cleansing the treatment areas with a gentle cleanser, then wiping with stanhexidine wipes to disinfect. 

Purpose: We cleanse to ensure safety and a powerful proprietary numbing cream is used to ensure maximum comfort.

Morpheus8 Treatment

The Morpheus8 treatment involves a device that emits RF energy through tiny needles, creating micro lesions in the skin to trigger collagen production and tighten the skin.

The device is carefully passed over the target areas, ensuring even coverage and optimal energy delivery.

Each session typically lasts between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the extent of the areas being treated.

Real-Time Monitoring:

Throughout the procedure, we continuously monitor your comfort and the skin’s response to the treatment, adjusting the settings as needed to achieve the best results while ensuring your safety.

Post-Treatment Care:

  • Immediate Aftercare: Immediately following the treatment, you may notice some redness and swelling in the treated areas, which typically subsides within a few days. We provide post-treatment instructions to help manage these symptoms and support the healing process.
  • Skincare and Sun Protection: Proper skincare and sun protection are crucial after Morpheus8. We recommend gentle skincare products and a high-SPF sunscreen to protect the treated skin from sun exposure, which can help maintain your results.
  • Follow-Up: Depending on your personalized treatment plan, multiple Morpheus8 sessions spaced a few weeks apart may be recommended for optimal results. We schedule follow-up appointments to assess your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.

Most Commonly Asked Questions Regarding Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is an advanced microneedling treatment that combines the traditional microneedling process with fractional radiofrequency (RF) energy. This combination targets deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, leading to rejuvenated, firmer, and smoother skin.

Unlike traditional microneedling that only creates micro-injuries on the skin’s surface, Morpheus8 goes further by delivering RF energy deep into the dermis. This enhances collagen and elastin production for more significant, long-lasting results.

The ideal candidate for Morpheus8 is anyone looking to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, acne scars, and uneven skin tone and texture. It’s suitable for all skin types and tones.

Morpheus8 is particularly effective for individuals with concerns about aging skin, acne scars, and those seeking a minimally invasive procedure to achieve skin tightening and rejuvenation.

Each Morpheus8 session takes approximately 60 minutes. The number of sessions required varies based on individual goals and skin condition, but typically, a series of 3-6 sessions, spaced a month apart, is recommended for optimal results.

Avoid sun exposure, tanning, and any chemical peels or abrasive treatments for a couple of weeks prior to the procedure. It’s also recommended to discuss current medications and skincare routines with the provider to ensure proper preparation.

The Morpheus8 device uses a collection of microneedles to deliver radiofrequency energy deep into the skin. Despite the numbing cream, you might feel a sensation of pressure and heat. Some patients describe it as a feeling of tiny pinches or a prickling sensation. The level of discomfort can depend on the treatment area’s sensitivity, the settings of the device, and the individual’s pain threshold.

Once the treatment is completed, the treated area might feel warm and appear red, similar to a sunburn. Some swelling and minor bruising can also occur. These side effects usually subside within a few days. The skin might feel tight and dry as it heals, and proper post-procedure care is important to support the recovery process.

Post-treatment care includes protecting the skin from sun exposure, using gentle skincare products, and keeping the skin hydrated. Avoiding harsh treatments and following the specific aftercare instructions provided by your practitioner will promote healing and enhance results.

Some immediate tightening effects can be observed right after the treatment, with more significant results appearing gradually over the following 2-3 months as the skin continues to produce new collagen.

  1. Immediate and Gradual Improvements: After a Morpheus8 treatment, initial improvements can often be seen within a few days to weeks as the skin heals and inflammation reduces. However, the most significant results typically emerge after several weeks to months because collagen production and skin remodeling are gradual processes. Most patients notice continual improvements in skin texture, firmness, and appearance for up to three to six months post-treatment.

  2. Duration of Effects: The effects of Morpheus8 are durable, with many individuals experiencing benefits for about 1 to 2 years. This longevity is due to the treatment’s stimulation of collagen and elastin production, which are crucial for maintaining the skin’s youthful structure and elasticity.

  3. Maintenance Treatments: To prolong the effects of Morpheus8, some practitioners recommend maintenance sessions. The frequency of these sessions can vary based on individual needs and goals. Some people might opt for a follow-up treatment once a year or more, depending on how their skin ages and their desired results.

  4. Influencing Factors: The lasting nature of Morpheus8 effects can also be influenced by factors such as sun exposure, smoking, diet, and overall health. Protecting the skin from the sun, following a healthy lifestyle, and using appropriate skincare products can help extend the treatment’s benefits.

  5. Individual Variability: There is considerable individual variability in how long the effects last. Genetics, skin care regimen, and the initial condition of the skin all play significant roles in the longevity of the results.

In summary, while Morpheus8 can provide durable results, maintaining these effects often requires a combination of good skincare practices and potentially periodic maintenance treatments.

Morpheus8 is considered a very safe and effective treatment when performed by a qualified and experienced practitioner. Its potential side effects are generally mild and temporary, including:

  • Mild Redness and Swelling: These are the most common reactions, typically resolving within a few days.
  • Slight Bruising: Occurs infrequently and fades quickly.
  • Temporary Skin Sensitivity: A normal part of the healing process, lasting only a short while.
  • Minimal Dryness and Peeling: Easily managed with moisturizers, indicating the skin’s natural renewal process.
  1. Thorough Consultation: Before treatment, a comprehensive assessment of the patient’s skin type, medical history, and cosmetic goals is conducted to ensure suitability for the procedure and to tailor the treatment plan.

  2. Use of Topical Anesthetic: A numbing cream is applied to the treatment area to minimize discomfort and reduce the risk of movement during the procedure, enhancing safety.

  3. Sterile Technique: All equipment, including the microneedling tips and the device itself, are sterilized and/or disposable to prevent infection.

  4. Customized Treatment Settings: Morpheus8 devices allow for adjustable settings, including needle depth and energy intensity, which are precisely tailored to the patient’s skin type and condition, minimizing the risk of adverse effects.

  5. Professional Training: Only trained and experienced professionals perform the procedure, ensuring proper technique and the ability to respond to any issues that may arise.

  6. Post-Treatment Care Instructions: Patients are given detailed care instructions to follow after their procedure, including how to clean the treated area and what products to use or avoid, reducing the risk of complications.

  7. Follow-Up Care: Providers often schedule follow-up appointments to monitor the healing process and address any concerns promptly.
