What is the Procedure for Morpheus8?

  • The Morpheus8 procedure uses a combination of microneedles and radiofrequency energy to help improve the appearance of the skin. 
  • The treatment uses a local anesthetic to reduce sensation and apply a topical numbing cream. 
  • The next step involves a handheld applicator with many tiny needles powered by radiofrequency energy that can reach deep into the layers of the skin.
  • Your practitioner will press the applicator onto the skin for a few seconds, delivering energy through the needles. They will then move on to an adjacent area, using a stamping technique rather than dragging it across the skin.
  • This process creates micro-wounds within the skin, stimulating collagen production and remodeling scar tissue for younger-looking, smoother skin, and improved texture. 

When Will My Results From Morpheus8 be Visible?


Over time these deeper layers will produce more collagen leading to fuller, firmer-looking skin with fewer wrinkles or scars. Results will become more visible 3 - 4 weeks after completion as tissues restore themselves naturally; you’ll notice total corrections over six months. Maintenance visits are recommended every 12 months after that when needed.

What is the Recovery for Morpheus8?

After a treatment of our Morpheus8 in Beverly Hills or Santa Monica, patients can expect minimal recovery and quickly return to regular activities. Treatment is noninvasive, so there is no need for extended downtime or rest. In most cases, people can resume their daily routine the next day after treatment. However, minor side effects may be experienced during the initial recovery period, such as temporary redness, swelling, or slight skin irritation. This should generally resolve within one week.
