Morpheus8 is a new device that is used to treat a variety of skin concerns. From improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin tightening, to optimizing the overall texture and tone of the skin, Morpheus8 has multiple applications.
The device can also treat acne scars, stretch marks, and other types of scars. It also helps improve the appearance of sun damage and hyperpigmentation.
Morpheus8 uses fractional RF (radio frequency) technology with micro-needling to create thousands of tiny skin punctures, stimulating the body's natural healing process. This leads to the production of new collagen and elastin, which tightens and smooths the skin.
Before we get into the details of how Morpheus8 works, it is important to know what role collagen plays in ageing.
Our skin starts to show signs of wear and tear. We get wrinkles, folds, and fine lines, and our skin becomes less elastic. All of these are natural effects of ageing, but they can be exacerbated by exposure to things like sunlight and pollution.
This happens because the production of collagen, a protein found in the connective tissue of our skin, slows down as we age. As we age, several factors can contribute to decreased collagen production, including sun exposure, smoking, poor diet, and environmental pollutants.
This skin protein is produced in the body by cells called fibroblasts. It is the most abundant protein in the human body, accounting for about one-third of its total protein content.
In addition to its impact on the appearance of the skin, collagen also plays a role in all stages of wound healing. So, not only does a decrease in collagen levels contribute to the visible signs of ageing, but it can also make it more difficult for wounds to heal correctly.
Fibroblasts gather around the site when a wound or an injury occurs and step up collagen production. This skin protein then works to:
Even after wound closure and new skin layer formation, collagen production continues in the skin for more than a year. As the collagen strengthens in the wound matrix, scars fade, and the repaired tissue gains structural strength.
Micro-needling has been used for years to stimulate natural collagen production and rejuvenate the skin.
During this procedure, tiny needles create micro-wounds in the skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, which includes an increase in collagen production.
Microneedling can be used to treat a variety of concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and dark spots.
Compared to micro-needling alone, a combination of RF (radio frequency) energy and micro-needling delivers better results.
Radiofrequency micro-needling is a new, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the skin and stimulate collagen production. The treatment effectively reduces wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars. It can also tighten loose skin and improve skin texture.
RF micro-needling is similar to traditional micro-needling, which uses needles to puncture the skin and promote collagen production. However, RF micro-needling uses heat instead of needles to stimulate collagen production. The heat from the RF energy penetrates the skin and heats the tissue below, which helps to stimulate collagen production.
RF micro-needling is less invasive than traditional micro-needling, as it does not involve puncturing the skin with needles. RF micro-needling is less painful than traditional micro-needling, as the RF energy heat helps numb the skin.
However, Morpheus8 goes beyond both micro-needling and RF micro-needling to deliver more precise results while speeding up recovery and healing time.
Morpheus8 is a cutting-edge fractional micro-needling device that we use at Self Care LA to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and more.
The device uses a fractional radiofrequency (RF) system to deliver energy deep into the skin, stimulating collagen production and resulting in youthful-looking skin. Micro-needles sit on the area to be treated and emit fractional RF energy. This creates heat uniformly in the area to be treated and produces micro-injures in the site.
Fractional RF systems get their name from the fractional (pin-points) areas targeted at multiple depths of the skin.
The Morpheus8 machine achieves this with the four fractional tips with different microneedle configurations. These include:
This video explains how Morpheus8 works in detail.
Morpheus8 micro-needling can be used on all skin types and can treat various concerns, such as wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and more. The treatment is minimally-invasive and has little-to-no downtime.
Here are some of the key benefits of Morpheus8:
Morpheus8 works by creating thousands of microscopic wounds in the skin. This triggers the body's natural healing response, which produces new collagen and elastin. The new collagen helps to tighten and improve the appearance of the skin, while the RF energy helps to heat the tissue and promote further collagen production.
The device offers full-coverage resurfacing for the face, neck, décolletage, and body.
Morpheus8 can be used on all areas of the body that need collagen remodelling, including the face, neck, décolletage, arms, stomach, thighs, and buttocks.
Most healthy individuals are good candidates for Morpheus8.

However, Morpheus8 treatment may not be suitable for some people, including:
The best way to know if Morpheus8 treatment is right for you is to consult our board-certified body contouring specialists at Self Care LA. Our specialists evaluate your medical, medication, and allergy history and examine your skin tone to determine your candidacy.
Morpheus8 is a versatile device that can be used on all skin types and customized to each individual's needs. Treatment with Morpheus8 is quick and easy, with minimal downtime. Typically, patients see visible results after a few treatments, with continued improvement over time.
When performed by a highly skilled body contouring specialist at Self Care LA, Morpheus8 offers several benefits, including:
The technology is proven to minimize injury and speed up recovery time, which ensures you experience zero to minimal side effects.
The number of treatments you need with morpheus8 will depend on your individual goals and needs. However, many patients see significant results after just a few treatments. For optimal results, a series of treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart may be recommended by our specialists.
The Morpheus8 procedure involves numbing the treatment area with local anaesthesia, making small incisions in the skin, and then inserting the device beneath the skin.
Once the numbing cream has taken effect, the esthetician will begin to glide the device across the skin's surface. The radiofrequency energy will heat up the tissue below the skin's surface, which can help stimulate collagen production and promote healing.
The treatment usually takes about 30 minutes to complete. After a Morpheus8 treatment, it is important to protect the skin from sunlight exposure. The team at Self Care LA will provide you with sunscreen and instructions on properly caring for your skin following your treatment.
The treatment is relatively quick, taking only 30 to 60 minutes to complete depending on the aesthetic goals and the areas to be treated. However, depending on your concerns and the number of treatments you require, you may need to schedule multiple sessions spaced a few weeks apart.
While each individual is unique, Morpheus8 skin tightening results are visible in three days, while noticeable results appear after a few weeks.
As collagen production continues, you will notice optimal improvements over the months after your initial treatment.
With skin healing and repairing from within, skin-tightening and anti-ageing results can last for as long as two or five years.
