Morpheus 8

Morpheus 8 - Houston  

Morpheus 8 is the most advanced fractional radio-frequency treatment providing anti-aging improvements on skin tone and texture for a more radiant appearance through ablation and skin resurfacing.

Morpheus 8 is an advanced fractional radiofrequency microneedling device that takes the improvement in skin quality from microneedling and adds the skin-tightening benefits of RF. Morpheus 8 is revolutionary because it treats deeper than most prior microneedling devices and it’s FDA approved as a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device, or SARD. This means that Morpheus treats more than just the skin – by directing energy into the tissue below the skin, difficult to treat areas like fatty necks and jowls can be contoured non-surgically. Only topical anesthetic cream is needed and both recovery and cost are minimal.

What are the benefits of Morpheus 8?

  • Morpheus 8 is more advanced than its predecessor the Fractora in that it delivers radiofrequency energy deeper (ranges from 1mm to 6mm deep).  It causes improvements in the broadest range of symptoms of aging skin including fine lines, deep lines, texture, pigment irregularities, blood vessels and redness.

  • Morpheus 8 offers improvements for aging skin that would normally require two, three or even four different technologies, and better than any microneedling device.

  • Ablation of the skin promotes skin resurfacing while untreated skin between the pins promotes faster healing of the treatment tissue.

  • Versatility of parameters allows the user to vary the depth of ablation, coagulation and heating.

Scientific Studies on Radiofrequency Microneedling

  • According to study published in the Journal of Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology, radiofrequency micronedling penetrates the dermis with heat energy that results in skin tightening within the dermal tissue.  This results from the immediate denaturation of collagen fibers which initiates new collagen formation that occurs in a few weeks to several months.  ​

  • There is no chromophore dependence with radiofrequency, unlike LASERs, and thus allows this treatment option for a variety of skin types from fair skin to darker pigmented individuals.

What are the Advantages of Morpheus 8 over other Radiofrequency-assisted Microneedling Devices?

  • Morpheus 8 delivers deep and safe fractional treatment penetrating 4000 microns with an additional thermal profile of 1000+ microns

  • Extremely Uniform Effect

  • Little to no thermal damage to the dermis, unlike other radiofrequency-assisted microneedling devices

  • Safe on FItpatrick skin type VI (Darker pigmented patients as seen in some Asian and Latin patients)  with little risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation which is common with other resurfacing methods, such as the CO2 LASER

What's the difference between Morpheus 8 and Fractora?

  • The main difference between Morpheus 8 and Fractora is the depth of penentration.  The depth of penetration of Morpheus 8 can range from 2mm to 6 mm.

Embrace RF

Morpheus 8 can be combined with radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (Facetite/Necktite) that further enhances your results similar to a facelift.  The advantage of this procedure is it's scarless!  Not only it's scarless, the downtime is very minimal (1-3 days.)
