What is Morpheus8?

Over time, your skin loses its fresh, firm quality, develops areas of hyperpigmentation, and begins to form wrinkles and creases. Morpheus8 (by aesthetic technology leader InMode) is a groundbreaking radiofrequency microneedling treatment system for skin resurfacing and tightening. Acclaimed plastic surgeon Dr. Darren Smith has adopted the technology of Morpheus8 for full-body rejuvenation.

Skin resurfacing treatments

Not all resurfacing treatments are equal in the results that can be achieved. Dr. Darren Smith has dedicated his professional career to staying abreast with the latest developments in aesthetics and offers advanced skin resurfacing treatments with the Morpheus8 system. This system achieves results with radiofrequency (RF) energy technology combined with microneedling, which heats the deep layers of the skin to stimulate natural regeneration and rejuvenation. Many of the changes associated with aging skin like laxity and a drooping appearance are caused by a loss of skin elasticity. Dr. Smith uses Morpheus8 to directly combat these changes by actually generating increased collagen formation (“collagen induction therapy”).

Morphues8 FAQ

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is an advanced skin-firming and tightening treatment that triggers natural collagen production in the deeper skin layers. As natural collagen increases, the facial skin becomes firmer and more youthful from the inside out.

What skin problems can Morpheus8 treat?

Morpheus8 treatment produces a remarkable improvement in wrinkles, crepey skin, lax skin, acne scars, stretch marks, cellulite, and other skin flaws.

What is the benefit of a fractionated treatment such as Morpheus8?

With the Morpheus8 system, fractionated radiofrequency (RF) energy is delivered through a matrix of tiny pins. As the controlled micro-injuries are surrounded by untreated skin, the healing process is very rapid, with almost no downtime, with results you can see and feel.

What are the benefits of RF energy?

RF energy is a controlled heat, delivered through the micro-pins in the Morpheus8 system, stimulating the natural regeneration of collagen. The treatment performs what is termed “tissue remodeling,” by tightening the existing collagen fibers.

What areas can be treated?

Any area of your face or body that has lax, aging skin can be renewed with the Morpheus8 system. Areas commonly treated include the lower facial area, neck, and décolletage, or areas of the face that show signs of aging skin, hyperpigmentation, or acne scars.

How quickly will I see the results?

The results of treatment begin to show within a few days, with significant improvements at the three-week mark. As the collagen renews in your skin, it continues to improve for up to three months.

Can anyone use Morpheus8?

One of the greatest benefits of Morpheus8 is that the treatments are appropriate for all skin types.

How many treatments will I need?

Every patient is unique. Typically, between one to three treatment sessions are needed for facial rejuvenation.

Can Morpheus8 be used in combination with other treatments?

For comprehensive anti-aging, a combination of a Morpheus8 and other treatments can be performed in the same session, or a few days later.

When can I put on makeup after my treatment?

You should avoid makeup for a day or two after your treatment. The treated area is typically slightly reddened and swollen, depending upon your individual reaction to treatment. Within two to three days, makeup can be applied, and you should feel comfortable in social interactions.

What kind of post-procedure care is required?

Aftercare is extremely simple. Avoid exposing the treated area to direct sunlight for about four weeks, and ensure you use sunscreen when venturing out.

What will a Morpheus8 treatment do for my skin?

Morpheus8 is a significant advance in anti-aging technology. The regeneration of natural collagen deep within the skin layers procedures a firming, smoothing, and skin reviving effect that leaves you looking noticeably younger.
