InMode Morpheus8 is a skin rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment that pairs microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. Using the FDA-cleared Morpheus8 device, a provider delivers RF energy heat into the skin via ultra-thin needles, creating controlled micro-injuries. This triggers a natural healing response, promoting new collagen and elastin production that resurfaces and firms skin.
Morpheus8 Prime may be the device you need to finally have the skin of your dreams.

With the Morpheus8, topical numbing usually does the trick to limit the discomfort. However, if needed, we do have other options for pain control that you can discuss with your provider. On average, the treatment takes only 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete, reliant on the size of the treated area.
Before your treatment, local anesthetic cream will be applied to cleansed skin for 30 to 45 minutes. This is to minimize discomfort during the treatment process. During the procedure, a handheld device is pressed into the specified area of the skin, allowing microneedles to perforate the skin. Once the microneedles are in place, they generate radiofrequency (RF) waves to penetrate deep into the dermal layer. Since the needles are tiny, most patients tolerate the procedure well. This simple, safe treatment delivers excellent results for all skin types. You can expect mild redness and swelling immediately post procedure which tends to subside within 2-3 days. Results are generally seen a month after treatment with continued improvement over time and with subsequent Morpheus8 treatments.
Morpheus8 treatment is a non-invasive procedure so there is little need for downtime or recovery. Immediately after your treatment, you will look and feel like you have a moderate sunburn, and your skin may feel warmer or tighter than usual. To aid the healing process, avoid exercising or strenuous activity for 24 hours post-treatment and do not apply makeup until 48 hours after the procedure. Throughout this time, reapply sunscreen and avoid intentional or direct sunlight. You can resume work or normal activities directly following treatment.
Morpheus8 Post-Procedure Aftercare
Following your treatment, use a soothing cleanser or face wash with lukewarm water to wash your face and follow up with a gentle moisturizer or healing ointment. If you choose to go outside, apply a broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen to protect your skin. Makeup can be applied two days following your treatment.
How Quickly Will I See Results with Morpheus8?
While every patient's skin is unique, Morpheus8 results can be seen in as few as 3 days with the most noticeable results appearing after 1 month. You may continue to see improvements months after treatment as it takes collagen up to 6 months to fully form. For best results, dermatologists recommend three treatments spaced out 4 to 6 weeks apart, although there is no upper limit on how many treatments you can have. Skin-tightening results can last on average 2 to 5 years.
Does Morpheus8 Have Side Effects?
One of the many benefits of Morpheus8 is that the treatment has minimal side effects. Most often, patients experience some redness, pinpoint bleeding, mild bruising, and swelling in the first 24 hours. Some patients have reported bumps or grid marks. Most symptoms resolve within 24 to 72 hours following treatment. During the healing process, it is important to prevent touching or picking at your skin to prevent skin damage and scarring. To allow proper recovery time, many clients also choose to come in Thursday evening or Friday to relax over the weekend. By Monday, their skin has normalized and they are ready to resume their normal activities!
Are the Results Permanent?
Morpheus8 results are permanent, but your skin will need to be treated every 1 to 2 years to ensure lasting results. On average, clients want to come back in at 12 months for a maintenance treatment. Since collagen and elastin fibers become thinner and looser as we age, your skin will naturally lose elasticity and will become more prone to additional wrinkles and sagging with time. Therefore, annual maintenance treatments are needed to sustain ongoing collagen production.
