What Does the Morpheus8 Treat?
Morpheus8, by InMode, is a microneedling radiofrequency treatment that stimulates collagen and tightens and firms skin on the face and body including vaginal tissue, above the knee, abdomen, arms and full face and neck. Morpheus8 also improves stretch marks and the appearance of cellulite.
Morpheus 8 is an excellent option for the delicate eye area improving under eye bags, dark circles and an overall tightening and toning of the skin above, around and under the eye. For those with dark circles or hollowness due to loss of collagen and volume, we also treat the undereye (tear trough) with dermal filler.
How Does the Morpheus8 Work?
Morpheus8 uses state-of-the-art technology to administer 24 silicone-coated needles beneath the surface of the skin and into the superficial fat. The depth of penetration depends upon the area being treated and desired results. Once the needles are placed, the device delivers a pulse of radiofrequency energy that tightens the soft tissue, coagulates the fat and stimulates the production of elastin and collagen.
At Mirabile M.D. MedCosmetic, we offer Morpheus8 head to toe treatment options including Morpheus8 for face and neck; Morpheus8 Body for body sculpting and remodeling; and Morpheus8 V for vaginal laxity and tissue remodeling.

What to Expect
A Morpheus 8 treatment takes approximately 1 hour. During the treatment you will feel heat and pressure on the treatment area.
You will be asked to arrive early to allow time for numbing of the area. We use a topical numbing cream to numb the area and minimize discomfort. Other pain-control options are available including Pro-Nox, Mesoram, and sublingual sufentanil.
Pro-Nox is a patient-controlled inhaled analgesia system that delivers a 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide mixture for the relief of pain and anxiety. The effects of Pro-Nox wear off in 10-15 minutes allowing patients to resume normal activity right away including driving.
Mesoram is a multi-needle injection that delivers small amounts of lidocaine to the treatment area. Mesoram is ideal for Morpheus8 treatments as it numbs at varying depths below the skin and as the skin surface.
Sublingual sufentanil is a sublingual pill that alleviates pain and anxiety and can only be administered in a controlled medical setting. Patients receiving sublingual sufentanil cannot drive following treatment and must make arrangements ahead of time for a driver on the day of treatment.
Following treatment, skin may be slightly red, similar to a mild sunburn. Redness should subside within the first 24 hours following treatment. Expect up to 3 days of social downtime. While improvement is noticeable after 1 treatment, to achieve optimal effect, 3-4 treatments are typically recommended.
