What Does the Morpheus 8 Treat?
Morpheus 8, by InMode, is a microneedling radiofrequency treatment that stimulates collagen and tightens and firms skin on the face and body including above the knee, abdomen, arms and full face and neck. Morpheus 8 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 Morpheus 8 Work?
Morpheus 8 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.

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 which provides for a comfortable treatment experience. Other pain-control options are available including Pro-Nox. Pro-Nox offers an alternative to over-the-counter pain medications. This patient-controlled inhaled analgesia system delivers 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide mixture for the relief of pain and anxiety.
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.
