What Can Morpheus8 Treat?
Our skin naturally goes through dramatic changes as we get older. Everything from skin texture to elasticity can be different, and it’s completely reasonable to want to restore your skin to its former youthful appearance. Morpheus8 treatment can help rewind these natural developments by boosting collagen and elastin production to revitalize the skin.
This treatment can be used essentially anywhere on the body, although the most commonly addressed areas are the face, neck, chest, and knees. Morpheus8 RF microneedling can target:
- Acne Scars
- Deep lines and creases
- Cystic acne
- Acne scars
- Sun damage
- Skin laxity (sagging or jowls)
- Irregular skin tone
- Uneven texture
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
- Wrinkles on the chest
How Does RF Microneedling Work?
Morpheus8 RF (radiofrequency) Microneedling combines the collagen-boosting, skin resurfacing benefits of traditional microneedling with the skin-tightening techniques of RF therapy to lift, tone, and tighten your skin.
Microneedling uses small sterilized needles to create micro-injuries to the skin’s surface. These tiny, invisible pin-pricks stimulate new collagen production. Collagen is the protein that gives our skin its strength, keeping it firm and plump.
RF therapy, on the other hand, utilizes radio waves to gently heat the skin, promoting collagen and elastin production. The treatment also boosts cell turnover, which can make the skin thicker and tighter.
When these two technologies are used in conjunction, their benefits are multiplied. The Morpheus8 needle tips are charged with RF, and as a result, the RF can penetrate more deeply into the skin’s surface. Both the surface and deeper layers of your skin will be revitalized to show youthful, natural results.

Morpheus8 Side Effects and Safety
Morpheus8 is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive skin treatment. It has shown little risk for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), which is more common in other skin resurfacing methods. However, as with any cosmetic procedure involving needles, there are possible side effects of Morpheus8 that patients should be aware of.
Your skin may be red and swollen immediately after the procedure, but these effects should go down within a few days. Patients may also get small scabs on the treated area within the first 24 – 72 hours following the procedure.
How Long Do Morpheus8 Results Last?
You will be able to see results from Morpheus8 treatments within a couple of days. Because the elastin in the skin tightens during the therapy, some patients may see minor benefits immediately.
One month after the procedure, you can expect your skin to appear noticeably tighter, smoother, and more youthful. Many patients continue to see progress for up to three months post-treatment. Morpheus8 results are permanent, and your skin will continue to age from its new point of improvement.
Morpheus8 Aftercare and Recovery
After receiving Morpheus8 RF microneedling, patients should care for their healing skin using the following practices in order to prevent complications.

- Use clean towels and pillowcases
- Keep the face clean with mild, fragrance-free soaps
- Avoid makeup and other cosmetic products for the first few days
- Avoid direct sunlight for the first few days
