Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive, in-office treatment that combines micro-needling and radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production in the deep layers of the skin. It can probe deeper into the skin than any other micro-needling device.

The Morpheus8 treatment is excellent for:

  • Increasing the firmness and elasticity of your skin
  • Reducing the risk of hyperpigmentation, improving your overall skin tone
  • Reducing the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Morpheus8 is most commonly used on the lower face and neck. It also works on the face and body areas that exhibit wrinkles, lax skin, scarring, stretch marks, or discoloration. This can include the jawline, abdomen, and buttocks.

Additionally, there is minimal downtime to receiving this treatment. Each treatment can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and is customized to your specific concerns.

Please note that this is a radiofrequency device, therefore, if you have a cardiac pacemaker or other implantable medical devices, you are not a candidate for this procedure. 


What to do before your procedure:

6 Months:

  • Stop taking Accutane (isotretinoin)
  • Talk to your doctor or provider if you have implants in your body, a history of autoimmune disease, melasma, keloid formation, or bad scarring as these may be contraindications to this procedure
2 Weeks:
  • Stop using retinol, alpha-hydroxy acid, lactic acid, glycolic acid, vitamin C creams and serums - Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, or self tanning lotions
  • Tell your doctor or provider if you have a history of cold sores
  • Avoid Botox or filler injections within 2 weeks of your procedure

1 Week:

  • If safe to do so, stop aspirin and ibuprofen as these medications may increase the risk of bruising. If you are taking other blood thinners (Warfarin, Eliquis, Plavix, Xarelto, etc) discuss this with yourdoctor or provider.
  • Stop supplements that may increase your risk of bleeding (garlic, ginseng, gingko biloba, St. John’swart, omega-3, vitamin E)
  • Avoid alcohol the night before your procedure

What to expect the day of your procedure:

  • You will need to arrive one hour before your procedure for pictures and topical numbing.
  • Please arrive with clean skin (no make-up, lotions, perfumes).
  • Depending on the depth and energy level required for your treatment, nitrous oxide or numbing injections may also be used to help aid with discomfort during the procedure.
  • The procedure will take 30-60 minutes depending on the areas treated.
  • You will be red and slightly swollen at the conclusion of the procedure. You may have pinpoint bleeding, bruising, or crusting. This can last 2-7 days depending on treatment. Redness of the skin can sometimes persist for 2 weeks.

What to do after to achieve the best results and avoid side effects:

  • Do not apply make-up for 24 hours and touch your face only with clean hands to avoid infection
  • Use a gentle cleanser or 1 cup of water mixed with 1 tbsp of white vinegar to clean the skin for 48hours. We recommend NeoCutis Neocleanse Gentle Cleanser.
  • Use a growth factor serum for 3-5 days after the procedure. We recommend the NeoCutis AftercareSoothing Cream
  • Avoid sun and heat exposure for 1 week. Use a physical (zinc oxide) sun block only when outdoors. We recommend ZO Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF50.
  • Avoid restarting retinol, vitamin C, or acid based products listed above for 2 weeks.
