People are turning away from invasive cosmetic surgeries like facelifts and neck lifts in favor of less invasive, non-surgical options that let them get back to work quickly with little or no downtime and little to no pain. Morpheus8 from Self Care LA fights sagging skin and stubborn fat simultaneously. Advanced, safe radiofrequency (RF) energy changes the subdermal layers of the skin to make it firmer and softer.
Increased Collagen Production
Morpheus8 (by InMode) is a device that combines microneedling with Radiofrequency (RF). It is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that improves and sculpts specific areas of your body. It also offers minimal downtime and is FDA-cleared. The Morpheus8 Body is a cutting-edge system. The Body handpiece is just like the other Morpheus8 modules in that it uses microneedling RF technology, but it is much bigger and can treat larger areas of the body in less time.
Damaged skin can be repaired, and resistant fat can be reduced using a fractional radiofrequency (RF) procedure (adipose tissue). By increasing collagen and elastin production, microneedling can tighten sagging skin and impart a more uniform sheen to the face. The module's "burst mode" enables simultaneous, depth-selective treatment of several tissue layers with controlled energy. In conjunction with skin tightening, improved body contour, tone, and texture can be achieved with fat remodeling.
Morpheus8 by InMode® is a skin treatment that enhances both deep and superficial layers by creating controlled damage that your tissues naturally heal. At Self Care LA in Santa Monica, California, aesthetic specialist Bharat Kothakota, MD, MPH, uses Morpheus8 to treat signs of skin aging, like scars and wrinkles.

Fast Amazing Results
Morpheus8 utilizes microneedling to deliver Radiofrequency (RF) to the skin at varying depths. The microneedling component prompts the healing response by stimulating collagen and elastin growth. The RF will tighten the treated skin. Microneedling, aka collagen induction therapy, causes enough ‘damage' to stimulate collagen production. This results in collagen remodeling and exfoliation and leads to a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin texture, reduced pore size, correct hyperpigmentation, treatment of stretch marks, reduction of scars and acne scarring, and skin tightening.
Morpheus8 can be used on nearly every part of the body where fat reduction and skin tightening are required. At Self Care LA, we love using Morpheus8 on the face and neck, leading to lifting/tightening around the eyes, mouth, jowls, and submental/chin area.
Morpheus8 is a remarkable facial treatment that is revolutionizing the way we remodel and contour the face. This advanced procedure focuses on subdermal adipose remodeling, which involves targeting the underlying layers of the skin to achieve remarkable results. By combining the precision of radiofrequency energy and the effectiveness of microneedling technology, it stimulates collagen production and remodels the adipose tissue, resulting in a host of benefits. Experience tighter, more youthful-looking skin, improved texture, and beautifully enhanced facial contours. Whether you're seeking a more defined jawline, lifted cheeks, or an overall rejuvenated appearance, Morpheus8 offers an all-encompassing solution to help you achieve your desired facial aesthetics.
Morpheus8 isn't just limited to the face; it's an incredible treatment option for the body as well. This versatile procedure offers a range of benefits, including skin tightening, fat liquefaction, cellulite treatment, reducing the appearance of stretch marks and scars, improving “rippled” skin, and evening out skin texture. By utilizing advanced technologies such as radiofrequency energy and microneedling, the treatment effectively targets these concerns at a deeper level, stimulating collagen production and promoting overall skin rejuvenation. Whether you're looking to tighten loose skin, smooth out cellulite, or diminish the appearance of imperfections, Morpheus8 provides a comprehensive solution to help you achieve the body aesthetics you desire.
Brighter, Clearer Skin
Find out if Morpheus8 is right for you by coming into our office, conveniently located in Santa Monica, for your private consultation, where we will review your medical history, discuss your goals, and decide on which treatments to deliver in a customized beauty plan made just for you.
The duration of the treatment could range anywhere from 16 to 60 minutes, according to the size of the area that is being treated. Dr. K will begin the procedure by cleansing and preparing your skin, then applying a numbing cream to the treatment area. Your aesthetic specialist may administer a local anesthetic if they plan to raise the intensity level of the device or if you continue to report feelings of pain.
The energy levels selected for each area treated will be adjusted based on your comfort level and your skin tone/complexion. Higher energy levels can adversely affect darker skin complexions. They should start with a small test area to rule out the possibility of an allergic reaction. The radiofrequency energy will be delivered by stamping the device across your skin, which will cause the needles to penetrate your skin and reach the target area. Because your skin will be numb, you will only feel mild pressure during the process.
The microneedling process results in thousands of microchannels in the skin, leaving you incredibly dry. The goal is to use skin products that keep the skin moisturized and aid recovery. Your fancy home skin care products may not be the right fit after the procedure as they may not be designed to penetrate the skin. We have proudly partnered with SkinCeuticals to incorporate products into our procedures that aid recovery and improve the results of your Morpheus8 treatment. We even offer these products to take home and assist in your recovery. Following your treatment with Morpheus8 Santa Monica patients may notice their skin will feel sensitive for a few weeks. We recommend you avoid direct sun exposure and use zinc-based sunscreen.
Because each individual's complexion varies, the Self Care LA team creates individualized treatment plans for patients before, during, and after procedures. Make an appointment for a consultation right away to learn more about how Morpheus8 benefits assist you.
The stimulation of collagen production takes about three months after the treatment is completed. While a single session of Morpheus8 will deliver results, we recommend that the client undergo a series of three to four treatments spaced about one month apart. Once you complete the series, clients will require a few maintenance sessions every year. Even when treated properly, skin tightening is not permanent. Age and other factors, including genetics and sun exposure, can contribute to skin laxity.
Morpheus8 is always performed in conjunction with topical anesthetics. We use a precise formulation of lidocaine and tetracaine that is applied to the treated areas and left on for one hour. We want to make sure the client is very comfortable and at ease during the procedure. We want to set the expectation that a single treatment could take up to two hours with the numbing process. In addition to topical anesthetics, we give Tylenol and offer the option of CBD or lozenges that include ketamine, Zofran, and midazolam to help the patient remain awake and conscious but remain comfortable during the procedure. After appropriate numbing, the client may feel dull pressure but very tolerable.
Yes, the combination of microneedling and radiofrequency at certain needle depths can target the fat as well as tighten the skin. While Morpheus8 can be used on nearly every body part, there are non-invasive methods to treat the body available at Self Care LA. This makes Morpheus8 ideal for treating the fat under the chin that is often difficult to treat. We find this procedure is more effective than Coolsculpting or Kybella for treating this stubborn area.
Fortunately, every skin type (Fitzpatrick 1-6) is a candidate for Morpheus8. Olive and Brown skin types that easily hyper or hypo-pigment with other facial treatments will be safe with Morpheus8. The needle depth and energy settings will be customized to your skin type and aesthetic goals. Morpheus8 is ideal for those looking for tightening and skin rejuvenation without the cost or downtime of surgery. The microneedling process is great for someone with acne scarring. Great for those with sun damage and dark spots – Morpheus8 resurfaces the top layer of skin.
There is very minimal downtime to Morpheus8. Our Santa Monica Morpheus8 clients can expect a few days of redness, itchiness, and swelling. It is vital that you do not perform Morpheus8 on a day when you are expected to attend an event with photography. Depending on your skin's reaction, it can range, but most can resume makeup after one to two days.
The cost of Morpheus8 can vary depending on the size of the area treated. For example, treating around the mouth will be much less expensive than treating the entire face and neck. The price per treatment does go down if you buy multiple sessions.
Yes, Morpheus8 really does work! In fact, Morpheus8 is one of the most popular treatments on the market right now because of its wide application in use. The microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) technologies have been out for several years and are well-studied and proven. The combination of these two in a single device is what makes Morpheus8 stand out against its competitors. Not only does it work, but it also works on every skin type, Fitzpatrick 1-6. You will need a trained, experienced provider to ensure the proper settings for your skin type. Morpheus8 has the ability to treat deeper (up to 8mm) than any other device on the market.
Yes, the beauty of Morpheus8 is that it has great synergy with other modalities. For example, we can combine Morpheus8 with our Lumecca IPL (Intense Pulse Light) Therapy to further amplify collagen rebuilding and skin remodeling. And these treatments can be done together in a single session! We are always trying new things at Self Care LA. We are combining Morpheus8 with other InMode technologies like EvolveX and creating treatments such as an incision-less Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) or a “Mommy Tummy” Makeover.
