Collagen presence is one of the most important factors contributing to your skin’s elasticity, strength and general youthfulness. However, the aging process leads to decreased collagen, leading to sagging skin, jowl formation, wrinkles and more. Morpheus8 is a nonsurgical, minimally-invasive, and scarless procedure that triggers collagen production and helps to reverse the signs of aging.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a cutting-edge microneedling procedure that stimulates collagen formation in your skin while removing adipose fatty tissues. Developed by InMode Aesthetics, Morpheus8 is an advanced procedure that combines a traditional microneedling technique with radiofrequency energy.
Morpheus8 provides a two-in-one benefit: The microneedling procedure triggers your body’s natural healing response, producing collagen to add volume and tighten skin; while the radiofrequency energy remodels the adipose tissues, facilitating advanced facial contouring.

How Does Morpheus8 Work?
Before the Morpheus8 procedure, Dr. Saigal or his board-certified physician assistant administers topical anesthesia to minimize sensation from the microneedling and radiofrequency. You will be awake and no general anesthesia is needed. Once your skin is numb, we proceed with the treatment. A small handheld device is used with tiny needles powered by a radiofrequency technology, placing it against your skin for a few seconds. The microneedles reach a depth of around 2 millimeters, triggering your skin’s recovery mechanism, while simultaneously delivering radiofrequency energy into the skin. After a few seconds, the device is removed and placed on the next section of your skin, continuing this movement until every inch of the targeted area is treated.
What is Recovery Like from Morpheus8?
You will see some results of treatment immediately — your skin will appear tighter. However, it will continue to improve over the 6 to 12 weeks following treatment, and you’ll continue seeing steady improvements in your skin for months after.
You can expect some redness, soreness, and tenderness after the procedure, but those side effects will dissipate within a few days. You can start applying makeup two days after the treatment, and you can typically resume work after 48 hours. Patients are advised to avoid direct sun exposure after the procedure and to wear sunscreen to protect from UV damage.
