Microneedling has been around for numerous years, but advancements in technology have turned the surface-level procedure into something deeper with Morpheus8. The Morpheus8 treatment process takes all of the benefits of microneedling and adds advanced radiofrequency energy to create better results.

Let’s take a look at how this innovative treatment works and why it’s become a standard in the world of facial treatments and healthy skin management.

How Does Morpheus8 Work?

While microneedling still works on the surface level to trigger the body’s natural healing process and collagen production, Morpheus8 uses that, along with radiofrequency energy, to go deeper beneath the epidermis. The energy creates heat deep in the skin that will trigger collagen and elastic production and address a number of skin concerns.

The Morpheus8 Treatment Process

When you come in for treatment at Thrive Wellness and Aesthetics, we’ll offer you a topical numbing cream or Pro-Nox, which is a combination of nitrous and oxygen gas. Either option is available to ensure you feel no discomfort.

The microneedling device with Morpheus8 and RF technology will then be used on the skin. The needles will make tiny punctures while the RF waves deeply penetrate your skin simultaneously. Together, they increase collagen production and help you achieve a beautiful complexion.

Regular treatments with the Morpheus8 will result in fewer wrinkles, diminished acne scars, smaller pores, and tighter skin on the face, neck, and chest.

Morpheus8 Results

Like any microneedling treatment, Morpheus8 does not deliver instant results. As your body goes through the natural healing process and creates more collagen in the days and weeks following treatment, you will begin to see the positive effects.

For best results, you’ll want to have three treatment sessions, and to maintain a smoother, firmer, and younger-looking appearance, annual Morpheus8 treatments are recommended.
