Resurface, Remodel, Tighten, and Contour with Morpheus8 RF Microneedling System by Inmode
What is Morpheus8 by InMode?
Morpheus8 by InMode is a fractional skin and body remodeling treatment by Inmode, combining microneedling with radio frequency. Microneedles target both the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin while delivering radiofrequency energy triggering the body’s natural healing response to promote the production of collagen and elastin. Superb and cutting-edge technology that can safely treat skin laxity, scarring, stretch marks, enlarged pores, texture, acne, severe underarm sweating, and fat remodeling. This treatment is designed for the face, neck, and body. Non-invasive, relatively pain free and minimal downtime make this an exceptional choice if you are looking to return your skin, face and body to a more youthful appearance.
Why choose Morpheus8 over other microneedling and radiofrequency devices?
Each individual session is highly customized to each patient’s goals, medical history, skin type and concerns. Key benefits include:
- Safe for all skin types including darker skin tones
- Can be performed on most areas of the body
- Relatively pain free
The energy and depth each pulse is delivered will vary based on areas to be treated, skin type and concerns. Different hand pieces allow us to treat larger areas such as the buttocks and thighs; and smaller more sensitive areas like the eyes to help with hooding and under eye laxity. On select patients treatments can also address complications from prior aesthetic procedures such as filler migration and minimize the appearance of scars following surgery.
The customization of each Morpheus8 treatments allows us to safely treat darker skin tones, minimizing the risk of PIH or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. PIH can occur following any trauma to the skin by activating melanocytes which produce the color or pigment in our skin. Because of this risk certain skin types and clients may not be ideal candidates for any device delivering RF microneedling.
What conditions can Morpheus8 address?
A few of the conditions that are ideal for this form of RF microneedling include:
- Scars (i.e., from past acne outbreaks and surgery)
- Fine lines
- Leathery texture
- Uneven tone
- Stretch marks
- Contouring; fat reduction
Patients with severe active acne are not candidates for treatment. The process can spread bacteria that produce further outbreaks.
What can I expect during my Morpheus8 treatment?
A topical numbing cream will be applied by your provider for approximately 45-60 minutes. Additionally, for your comfort Pro-Nox Nitrous Oxide may be recommended. After the numbing cream is removed and the area to be treated thoroughly cleaned the Morpheus8 handpiece will be glided across the treatment area. You may feel mild to moderate discomfort, pressure and heat as the applicator delivers RF energy. Due to the design of the Morpheus8 technology, treatment can take 15 to 60 minutes (depending on the size of the area to be treated).
What can I expect after my Morpheus8 treatment?
Patients are often able to return to work or other everyday activities directly after treatment. However, some patients may want to postpone social events for a few days, due to having some minor side effects like redness, swelling, or bruising in the treatment area.
The redness and swelling immediately following treatment typically resolve in around one to three days. Itching, dryness or crusting of the skin may develop around day 3 following the procedure. It is important to not scratch or pick at any scabs as this may result in scarring. For optional healing and results we recommend our medical-grade skincare products by Revision Skincare and SkinBetter.

When can I see results and how long does Morpheus8 last?
For best results we recommend a series of three treatments spaced about four to six weeks apart to get the results that you desire. Since the system triggers beneficial processes like collagen and elastin production deep within the skin, it can take three months following your final session to see full results. We promise it’s worth it!
Patients often see a noticeable improvement to lines and scars within a few days, with improved skin tightness and contouring revealing itself around 30 days post-procedure. Results typically last one year. For long-lasting results we recommend annual touch-ups.
How much does Morpheus8 cost and am I a candidate?
Cost will vary depending on the area to be treated and your aesthetic goals.

The process takes 30 minutes and the fee is $75 which acts as a credit for any services you book with us. This credit is good for 6 months from your consultation. We look forward the helping you redefine beauty and defy age.
