Morpheus 8 is a multi-award winning skin tightening treatment. It is hugely popular and has taken the dermatology world by storm. It can be used to tighten every single centimetre of skin on the face, neck, decolletage and can totally transform a person’s appearance in a completely natural way and age appropriate way. Morpheus 8 can be used on people of any age and of any skin type.
Morpheus 8 combines two of the most powerful anti-ageing technologies in one treatment – microneedling and radiofrequency energy. This combination of needling and energy creates huge collagen bio-stimulation in the tissue. This energy works to reduce lines and wrinkles, tighten sagging skin and gives an overall uplift and tightening to the tissue. Morpheus 8 can also be used to resurface scars, tighten loose tummy’s (and bingo wings) and remodel stretch marks.
It is a versatile, minimal downtime treatment that delivers clinically evidenced results. This treatment is your ‘go to’ treatment if you want a ‘10 years younger’ type of transformation.
The Heavy Science:(for those who want the deeper science behind M8)
Morpheus 8 and Morpheus 8 Body are revolutionary minimally invasive epidermal resurfacing and subdermal adipose remodelling devices (SARD). They are modular fractional RF technologies designed specifically to remodel facial and body tissue. The triple action of fat coagulation, connective tissue contraction, and bulk heating provides practices with a “maximum results, minimal downtime” oriented procedure. RF energy is delivered through bipolar arrays of pin electrodes, and results in localized heating and coagulation of the tissue that is in direct contact with the pins.
