Morpheus Q & A

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a noninvasive tissue remodeling treatment that helps firm fat while your tissues build collagen simultaneously. It also reduces skin irregularities.

Excel Medicine offers Morpheus8 treatments for the face and the body, giving you the opportunity for a tighter and more sculpted appearance.

Morpheus8 is a deep fractional radiofrequency needling procedure. The handheld device creates microchannels using a small network of needles, delivering radiofrequency energy deep into the tissues under your skin. The radiofrequency creates tiny heat lesions that trigger a natural healing response.

After an initial consultation, your Excel Medicine provider lets you know the number of treatment sessions you’ll need with Morpheus8. Typically, you can expect to see a significant difference in skin and tissue irregularities after up to three sessions, with 4-6 weeks of healing between each session.

What are the results of Morpheus8 treatments?

Thanks to the radiofrequency emitted through the needles in the handpiece, Morpheus8 boosts collagen and elastin production deep within the skin. This gives you tighter and firmer skin on a deeper level than you would get with a typical microneedling treatment. The healing response occurs on the surface, too, so you’ll see fewer skin flaws in the superficial layer.

A few results you can expect with Morpheus8 face or body treatments are:

  • Slight fat reduction
  • Fewer wrinkles and lines
  • Less sagging skin
  • Fewer stretch marks
  • Less scarring
  • Less hyperpigmentation
  • Tighter skin
  • Firmer skin

The most popular areas for Morpheus8 are the face, chin, and neck, but the treatment does just as well on other areas like the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. You can expect to enjoy the full effect of each treatment session around three weeks after the appointment.

What should I expect when I come in for Morpheus8?

Your first Morpheus8 treatment might seem a little intimidating if you’ve never done it or any other microneedling procedure in the past.

However, the experience is more comfortable than you might expect. Your Excel Medicine provider applies an anesthetic cream to your skin and lets it sit for up to an hour for maximum numbness.

Once your skin is numb and ready, your Excel Medicine provider uses the Morpheus8 handpiece to treat your skin for 15-60 minutes. You might feel some pressure, but it isn’t painful.

The handpiece has multiple settings (superficial, intermediate, and deep), so your provider can customize it to the depth you need depending on the thickness of the targeted skin and your specific skin concerns.
