About Morpheus8

FRACTIONAL RESURFACING

Morpheus8 Face and Body device is a cutting edge, minimally invasive radiofrequency (RF) microneedling treatment for total skin rejuvenation. It can be used on the face, neck, and body in order to tighten and revitalize the skin through a process called fractional resurfacing which triggers the body to naturally produce more collagen and elastin – two of the most important components of healthy, beautiful skin.

What does Morpheus8 treat?

Most people only need 1-3 treatment sessions – far less than many other treatment types.  The most common areas we treat here at Haven are face, neck, and abdominal stretch marks.  It is specifically designed to correct:

  • Sun damage
  • Skin discoloration
  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks and skin laxity
  • Acne scars
  • Body and facial scars

Morpheus8 Body is the first and only FDA-cleared technology to provide sub-dermal adipose tissue remodeling to tighten skin, smooth skin irregularities, stimulate collagen production, and diminish scarring and stretch marks while simultaneously minimizing skin injury (no physical down time), increase treatment uniformity, and maximize results of non-operative cosmetic procedures.

Most often a package of 3-6 treatments are required, although in some cases a single session might reach your goals. As every patient is different and has their own unique concerns and goals, treatment plans are tailored to your needs.  Treatment sessions are spaced out over a few months with 6 to 8 weeks between sessions, giving your skin time to recover and start showing remarkable results in between sessions. Acne scarring and stretch marks tend to take the most treatment sessions to tackle. Patients facing these issues are likely to need up to 6 sessions.

Both men and women who are in good general health make good candidates for Morpheus8. There is no immediate down time post procedure and some patients experience slight redness or swelling, but these symptoms typically subside within a day or two of treatment. The results of Morpheus8 treatment take some time to fully activate, although most clients do see and feel some immediate improvement. The most noticeable time for results is after three weeks. From there, you’ll continue to notice steady improvements for about three months, which will hold for some time.
