Everyone wants their skin to appear healthy and glowing regardless of age. Smooth blemish-free skin can give you a sense of confidence even when you are not wearing makeup. But over time, your skin can end up collecting more wrinkles, lines, acne scars, and sunspots. The result is less vibrant-looking skin.
To improve damaged and aging skin, many people turn to innovative and safe solutions like micro-needling. Now, this anti-aging technique has a new spin—Morpheus8. What is it? And what are the side effects? Is it for you?
Unlike the traditional micro-needling treatments, which entail using tiny needles to create channels by piercing your skin, this type of micro-needling is more advanced and innovative. When doing radiofrequency (RF) micro-needling with Morpheus8, the procedure entails applying radiofrequency generated heat to your skin. This procedure helps tighten your skin and can also improve the underlying fat. The results are better, more powerful, long lasting.
But that’s not all. What makes Morpheus8 an outstanding subdermal adipose remodeling device is the excellent results you can get at both low and high settings. When used in its most powerful settings, it can sculpt the underlying fat. Whereas when used at its lower settings, it can improve your skin texture.
At this setting still, it can give you a more youthful look by:
Like any other procedure, Micro needling with Morpheus8 also has its side effects. So far, the most common side effect is mild swelling and redness in the skin area that received treatment. However, this is nothing to worry about, and you can expect it to subside in a couple of days or less.
Besides, the treatment may create small scabs in the treated area. You may notice these on the first day after treatment or anywhere within the window of the first 72 hours. They appear like small flaky, peeling skin. If you notice any scabbing, you must avoid picking at the scabs.
Picking can only lead to more scarring and skin damage making the results of the treatment less pleasant. However, these scabs are not permanent and shed as soon as the skin heals properly. Although it may take time for you to see the results if you have scabs, once the shedding is over, you will notice dramatic improvement.
Other common side effects can include temporary bruising, tenderness or soreness, and occasionally pain for some patients. You can manage these symptoms with over-the-counter medications. In most cases, if you feel any irritation, it’s only mild and will stop soon after the treatment.
Once you get home from the treatment, follow your post-treatment instructions for best and optimal results. The best way to take care of that area is by staying away from direct sun exposure. You can protect your skin with a generous amount of sunscreen when you go outside until the skin heals.
Moreover, be sure to use recommended products to keep your skin moisturized to prevent further irritation. If you feel any pain (only in rare cases), over-the-counter medication can be effective. Also, there is a calming ointment you can use to reduce any discomfort.
Lastly, you can use concealer and your normal makeup the next day after treatment to reduce the flaking and scabbing skin’s appearance. These side effects will not affect your daily activities, and your skin will feel normal soon after your skin heals.
Anyone can use Morpheus8 treatment. Regardless of your age or gender, you can use this treatment to treat numerous conditions and improve your general appearance. However, your skin is completely different from the next patient or the one before you, meaning the results will vary and the recommendations.
It’s best if your doctor goes through your health history before making any recommendations. Also, the treatment can depend on your anatomy and aesthetic requirements.
With that said, here are common skin issues that the treatment can help you with:
Post-treatment, you can wear your makeup as usual from the next day after treatment. However, it’s always important to ensure that your skin is well moisturized and protected from sun damage. So ensure you throw in enough sunscreen along with your normal makeup.
The treatment process using Morpheus8 is not quite different from other treatments. The first step is numbing your skin using a topical numbing cream medication. This can help reduce discomfort during treatment.
Then, the doctor will cleanse your skin using an antibacterial formula. Afterward, the procedure can begin on the desired part of the body or face. In some cases, if you want better results, you can go through a combination of the Morpheus8 treatment and another one like AccuTite or other laser procedures. These combination treatments can provide incredible treatment results in the lower face and around the neck, including tightening and contouring.
Also, the outcome will vary. For instance, some people receive instant results after the treatment. But for others, it may take weeks, sometimes up to a month, before they can see any result. Besides, others may need other treatment sessions evenly spaced during that period before they start to see results.
Morpheus8 treatment is a groundbreaking treatment method that has numerous benefits. With minimal side effects that you can easily manage at home, it’s certainly one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in our office. Plus, considering it’s permanent, it can help you get your confidence back. However, it’s best to continue an optimized skincare routine to ensure that you maintain that youthful look.

Anyone looking to get rid of their wrinkles, lines and skin blemishes without surgery should get in line for Morpheus8. It’s a simple, yet painless microneedling procedure that tightens and rejuvenates the skin.
The procedure stimulates the deeper layers of the dermis to remodel and transform skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, improve skin texture, tone, and give it a tighter and more supple appearance. If you’re not sure if Morpheus8 is right for you, check out the answers to the most commonly asked questions about the treatment below.
It is an advanced, microneedling treatment that utilizes special radiofrequency energy to tighten and rejuvenate the skin. The procedure increases collagen production while remodeling the skin to give patients smoother and tighter skin and a youthful appearance.
To perform the procedure, our team utilizes a special microneedling device on the area of the body being treated to send targeted radiofrequency heat energy to trigger an increase in collagen production. The microneedling process punctures the epidermal layers of the skin. As these needles prick and pass over the treatment area, they send radiofrequency impulses that signal the skin to boost the production of collagen and other skin proteins.
Morpheus8 is a treatment that pricks the skin which may be slightly unpleasant for some patients. Before the start of the procedure, a mild numbing cream is applied to help minimize any uncomfortable sessions to improve patient comfort.
Some mild soreness and redness may be present after the procedure. These symptoms are manageable with ice packs. Patients interested in taking pain medication should consult with our medical staff to learn which types are suitable and which are not and pose a risk to their health and outcome.
Morphues8 is an advanced cosmetic procedure that is suitable for anyone in their 30s, 40s,50s, and older who meet all other criteria. A consultation is necessary to learn of suitable and alternative treatment recommendations. Additional noninvasive and minimally invasive cosmetic and dermatological procedures are available.
Morpheus8 is a cosmetic treatment that goes deeper than the surface to generate results. Most other non-invasive cosmetic procedures target topical issues to provide short-lived changes to the skin. Morpheus8 targets the deep layers of the epidermis to remodel the skin’s appearance and condition. No downtime is required, and the results, with proper skincare, a good diet, and lifestyle choices, last up to a year or longer after the first treatment session.
Morpheus8 is suitable for adult patients of all ages, especially those looking to refresh their skin and appearance without the invasiveness or commitment of surgery. Morpheus8 is also useful in treating many skin conditions, but individual results vary.
Morpheus8 is a quick and painless cosmetic treatment that allows patients to experience the transformational benefits of a facelift without having incisions or surgery. The benefits of Morpheus8 are many and include the following:
Boosts collagen – The aging process gradually causes a decline in collagen and skin protein production. As a result, fine lines and wrinkles develop and the skin becomes thinner and less supple. Morpheus8 reverses this effect, so patients end up with firm, fuller skin that is more supple and a younger appearance.
Erases wrinkles and fine lines – lines and wrinkles are common with aging and tend to become more noticeable and undesirable with time. Morpheus8 is proven to erase fine lines and wrinkles around the forehead, eyes, mouth, and other places on the body to leave behind smoother and tighter skin.
Corrects complexion concerns – Many people who seek out Morpheus8 do so because it is an effective treatment for common and not so easy to manage skin and complexion issues. Among the many skin issues the treatment improves are acne, enlarged pores, discoloration, oiliness, combination, dryness, roughness, scars, and stretch marks.
Tightens and lifts skin – Safe for use on different body areas, such as the face, neck, bra line, arms, abdomen, and more.
The Morpheus8 RF microneedling procedure is the most effective procedure of its kind at correcting problematic skin issues and reversing the signs of aging on the face and body so patients look good and feel younger than ever.
Side effects are minimal. Not everyone experiences them. However, some patients have experienced slight bruising, redness, swelling, and light bleeding from the micro-needling within the first 24 hours after treatment. These issues are temporary and usually resolve within two to three days.
Because the procedure pricks the skin, patients should take extra measures to protect their skin. Skin damage and scarring can occur when the treatment area is touched before it has settled down from treatment.
At NuWave Medical, our team offers 30-minute Morpheus8 sessions. Some treatments are longer or shorter depending on the work and changes desired.
Longer sessions may be applicable for those interested in treating multiple areas. Patients are advised to arrive early to their appointments. Results may be immediate for some, but the most dramatic and long-term improvements can take up to four weeks to appear. Additional improvements occur over several months following the last treatment.
The best results are when patients have several treatment sessions. Our Team evaluates each patient and takes their desired outcome into consideration when determining the optimal number of Morpheus8 sessions to provide the best results and outcomes. Each session is scheduled two to three weeks apart to give the skin time to settle and adjust from treatment.
Morpheus8 treats the face, neck, hands, arms, bra line, back, abdomen, knees, thighs, and buttocks.
Morpheus8 is not for everyone. But most people who are in good overall health qualify. Rare complications can occur, such as burns, skin damage, hyperpigmentation, and excessive scarring.
These issues rarely occur when the procedure is performed by a properly trained and experienced professional.
The skin should be in optimal condition to tolerate Morpheus8 treatments and for optimal results. Patients should consider the following recommendations on things to avoid before their treatments.
Because every patient’s situation is different, it’s necessary to review any and all prep instructions.
There are some limitations candidates should be aware of before scheduling their appointments. After each treatment session, patients should avoid the following:
After each treatment session, any swelling, redness, or discomfort that occurs should resolve within a couple of days. After which, results are noticeable within four weeks after treatment.
Continuous changes and improvements become more apparent over the next several months. Patients can protect their Morpheus8 results with diet and lifestyle improvements indefinitely Additional treatments are also beneficial and available.
