Morpheus 8 RF Microneedling

Morpheus8 is the best microneedling radiofrequency device on the market today. It uses special insulated microneedles that deliver unparalleled accuracy & energy to stimulate & contract deep dermal collagen. The unique sequential delivery of M8 means faster, more comfortable treatments. I employ this device to treat laxity of the face & neck.

  • RFM microneedling uses precision controlled superheating the dermal layer of skin
  • RF microneedling devices include Morpheus8, Infini, Genius RFM, Potenza, Secret RF, Matrix & Profound
  • These devices can address skin laxity, improve skin tone & acne scars
  • RF energy spares the upper layers of skin hence recovery time is fast
  • Morpheus8 can be safely & effectively used on all skin types

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is an advanced RF microneedling system.  Its job is to tighten facial & neck skin, in turn reducing laxity. Morpheus8 has a unique feature, namely delivering high energy RF to different levels of the skin. This addresses tightening of the fat layer & the lower dermal layer of

What can Morpheus8 treat?

Morpheus8 excels in treating-

Other conditions that can be treated with Morpheu8 include; 

  1. Skin laxity of the body & limbs
  2. Stretch marks
  3. Textural skin concerns 
  4. Improving skin quality, reducing dull skin

Can Morpheus8 tighten skin?

Morpheus8 RFM can stimulate & tighten skin on the face & neck. With deep remodelling of collagen & the network around fat cells, Morpheus8 can restore skin turgor, as increasing the tensile strength of skin reduces laxity.


Results from skin tightening can be amplified with injectable biostimulators. 

Who is the ideal candidate for Morpheus8?

Patients with the highest probability of success include-

  1. Mild to moderate skin laxity of the lower face & neck.
  2. Absence of sun damage. 

If you have significant sun damage, RF devices do not work as well. The reason is that collagen is broken & lax. For this group we recommend deep chemical peels or ablative lasers.

With protrusion depths of 7 mm, heavy jowls can be effectively treated with Morpheus8, though in reality the best treatment for jowls is with HIFU. Jowls are due to excess migration of superficial fat.

My clinical team & I profile patients before any treatment. This translates to a high hit rate (patient satisfaction rate) 

Davin’s Take on Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling

morpheus8-davin-limThe Inmode Morpheus8 ranks in my top three radiofrequency devices (Morpheus8, Genius RF & Infini). These devices are super powerful but precise. Morpheus 8 utilizes insulated needles, much like Infini RF & Genius RF to deliver energy to pinpoint depths in the dermal layer of skin.

Why is insulation super important when it comes to RF services? Insulation protects the upper layers of skin, namely the epidermis. Insulation was first used on the generation one Intracel RF, with other RF devices following. Insulation means far better outcomes, with less sessions & greater patient comfort.

M8 is our go to device when it comes to skin tightening as it treats (from deep to superficial), the fibro septal network of fat, the lower reticular dermis & the upper papillary dermis. Tightening of all layers of the skin is essential for predictable skin tightening. In my practice I combine M8 with other collagen stimulating procedures such as fractional lasers, PDO mono vector threads, RF NuEra & HIFU.

For effective skin tightening each layer of skin MUST be treated.
