What is Morpheus8?

The older you get, the less your body produces collagen, causing your skin to lose elasticity. This, in turn, results in sagging skin, lines, and wrinkles. Stress, sun damage, and genetic factors also play a role in changing your skin and appearance, which can cause you to feel dissatisfied or depressed when you look in the mirror.

Morpheus8 is a needling device that uses RF, or radiofrequency, to treat skin showing signs of aging. This non-surgical treatment stimulates the production of collagen in your body, which works to tighten skin and smooth wrinkles. Our registered nurses specialize in anti-aging treatments such as Morpheus8 to help you regain a more youthful appearance. Our expert aestheticians understand the issues you’re confronting as your face changes and know how to help you reach your cosmetic goals.


Morpheus8 Prime is gentle enough to be used on the delicate skin around the eyes and lips while being powerful enough to be used as a tool for a non-surgical brow lift!

The classic Morpheus8 handpiece employs three distinct pin sizes. Morpheus8 Prime utilizes a slender and less intrusive 12-pin configuration, making it suitable for challenging and sensitive areas. This technology reaches depths of 4-5mm within the dermis, facilitating treatment for smaller, intricate, or curved regions like the periorbital zone, forehead, nose, chin, upper lip, inner arms, and other delicate body zones.

Benefits of Morpheus8

Aging is a natural process, and it is normal that our faces change. Minor issues such as stretch marks, acne scars, and wrinkles can become more pronounced as your skin loses its elasticity. The texture can coarsen and your contours sag, making you feel uncomfortable and helpless against your changing appearance.

By combining needling techniques with RF energy waves, Morpheus8 treatments penetrate more deeply into your skin, providing a range of positive results. This includes reducing the appearance of wrinkles, lines, sagging, jowls, acne scars, stretch marks, sun damage, and enlarged pores. Even better, Morpheus8 is a short treatment with no downtime needed. It also produces faster results than other methods and is a safe, effective way to reduce signs of aging in your face.


This cutting-edge technology offers superior precision compared to alternative skin resurfacing procedures, allowing our team in Boston to target specific areas in response to your unique aesthetic concerns. Morpheus8 may be used to treat areas of the:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Legs
  • Buttocks

Its versatility means that it’s perfect for any issue, including wrinkles, skin texture, pigmentation, sun damage, stretch marks, scars, or crepey skin, and is why it’s become a top aesthetic treatment. As a noninvasive treatment, it can be utilized on nearly any part of the body, including the forehead for a non-surgical brow lift, making it an optimal and more comfortable choice for both men and women seeking a long-lasting solution to maintain smooth, supple skin.

Morpheus8 Procedure

This treatment is considered an outpatient procedure that can take up to two hours to complete. The laser technician will apply a numbing cream on the targeted area before beginning. If you choose a higher setting on the device, you can request a local anesthetic for a stronger numbing effect.

To begin, the technician will take the Morpheus8 device and stamp it across your skin. As they do this, tiny needles prick your skin and send out the RF energy waves. This heats the tissue below your skin, which then stimulates collagen growth. As the skin heats, our laser technician can mold your fat, recontouring the target area to create natural-looking results as your skin tightens after treatment.

Generally speaking, the best candidates for Morpheus8 are in good health and are dissatisfied with changes in their skin, including fine lines, wrinkles, and minor scars.

Recovery After Morpheus8

Morpheus8 treatments are non-surgical and minimally invasive, so you should be able to return to your normal routine within two to three days. Because of the microneedles, there will be some mild redness and swelling in your treated areas. You may also notice shiny skin or extra tight skin for up to five days later, which is normal. You can treat these areas with moisturizer. You also need to avoid direct sunlight and physical activities such as running or swimming.

Morpheus8 Results

Your results from Morpheus8 treatments will begin to become visible within a few days, including smoother and tighter skin.

Over the next three weeks, your wrinkles, stretch marks, lines, or whatever issue you had treated will disappear even more. Boston Morpheus8 patients will continue to see improvement in their skin for up to 3 months after their last treatment. Collagen production will also increase, which means it might take up to 6 months for you to see the final results from your Morpheus8 treatments.
