Morpheus8 is a non-surgical, minimally invasive skin tightening and rejuvenation treatment that goes into the deep layers of your skin to remodel the subdermal adipose tissue. Morpheus8 combines microneedling with EmbraceRF technology. The combination of these techniques cause fat coagulation and tissue contraction resulting in 1) the tightening of existing collagen and elastin, 2) the production of new collagen, and 3) fat remodeling without the need for surgery.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is next level Microneedling
In standard microneedling treatments, micro-punctures are made in the skin using an applicator with small, sterilized needles that go into the skin approximately 2 millimeters deep. After which, platelet-rich plasma or vitamin serum is applied to the skin. This technique is meant to promote collagen growth.
Developed to be more effective than regular microneedling treatments, Morpheus8 was designed by a leading manufacturer of radiofrequency technology, InMode Aesthetics. It is the only device that combines the benefits of microneedling with radiofrequency energy. With superior needles that reach into the adipose tissue of the dermis, as deep as 4mm; Morpheus8 not only encourages collagen generation, it gently and safely heats the deep tissue to more effectively thicken and tighten the skin.

Benefits of the Morpheus8
Scientifically proven to reduce wrinkles, tighten skin, and remodel fat; fractional RF energy renews the deep layers of skin. The RF energy reaches deep beneath the skin to where unwanted fat resides and collagen and elastin are produced helping to stimulate rejuvenation, while the skin’s surface is kept intact. The results are better skin tightening and wrinkle reduction.
The Morpheus8 Treatment
Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure. During your session, a topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment areas. Then the Morpheus8 device is used to stamp the treatment areas delivering radiofrequency energy through microneedles. Depending on the body parts being treated, different-sized needles are used to reach the appropriate depth beneath the skin. The treatment time is approx. an hour and a half depending on the number of treatment areas. Dr. Salama will customize your treatment for optimal results.
While immediate changes are seen after the first treatment, patients may need between 2 to 3 sessions depending on desired results with subsequent treatments recommended about every 2 years for maintenance. Following each treatment, patients will need to apply an ointment for 72 hours. After those three days, patients can moisturize, apply a mineral sunscreen to their skin, and use breathable makeup for the first week if the face is treated. Direct sun exposure should be avoided for at least three days.
