InMode Morpheus8 is a skin rejuvenation treatment that pairs microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. Using the FDA-cleared Morpheus8 device, a provider delivers RF energy heat into the skin via ultra-thin needles, creating controlled microinjuries. This triggers a natural healing response, promoting new collagen and elastin production that resurfaces and firms skin.
To help his patients better understand how this technology works, Dr. Vu Ho, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Plano, Texas, explains to them that it’s “like microneedling on steroids, because the depth and intensity of treatment can be optimized to achieve the desired outcome.”
“Microneedling is called collagen-induction therapy because the repeated puncturing of the skin causes microtrauma that initiates a recovery cascade of collagen production in the skin,” says Dr. Jason Emer, a board-certified dermatologic surgeon in West Hollywood, California.
Adding radiofrequency energy takes this process to the next level. With RF microneedling, “there is exfoliation and collagen remodeling, improving the texture and tone of the skin at the same time that it causes the skin to tighten,” explains Dr. Emer.
Most people need a series of at least three monthly treatments for optimal results.
Post procedure patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a broad spectrum sunscreen every day. in addition to reducing the risk of skin cancer, sunscreens, also slow the aging process.
