What is Morpheus8? A Valuable Skin Treatment to Include in Your Yearly Skincare Routine
Did you know that the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic has changed how many women perceive skincare? With many of them working from home during quarantine, a growing number of women have decided to rely less and less on makeup and work skincare routines into their daily routines, and that is fantastic news. Beauty is in the skin, and because of the myriad of negative factors, such as sunlight, genetics, or smoking, it needs a helping hand.
While skincare routines are essential in providing soft, hydrated skin, there is always room for improvement. Here at the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery, we believe that skincare routines deserve a boost. With the recent technological advances, minimally invasive treatments are making a name for themselves on the market – reduced procedure and recovery times, coupled with stunning results, are really helping these treatments become more popular among patients.
Beautiful skin requires commitment, not a miracle. It is time for you to improve your yearly skincare routine with a treatment that stands out as a standard for quality and effectiveness in providing a firmer, smoother, glowing skin – Morpheus8 by InMode! In this blog, we will explore the world of radiofrequency (RF) microneedling and how it can help you achieve golden standards in skin rejuvenation.
What is Morpheus8?
This minimally invasive treatment harnesses the benefits of RF energy and microneedling to deliver superior skin rejuvenation results. This treatment induces new collagen and elastin production, the two fibers that make up the skin’s supporting structure.
As a whole, the benefits of Morpheus8 are far-reaching. This treatment can be used to target fine lines and wrinkles, smooth out skin texture, remove stretch marks, tighten lax dermal tissue, and help treat skin conditions such as acne scarring. When it comes to the treatment areas, Morpheus8 is a standard in versatility, as it covers extensive body areas, including arms, chest, and abdomen. However, most patients choose this treatment for their facial area, jawline, and neck.
How is Morpheus8 Performed?
The Morpheus8 device uses sterilized microneedles to puncture and create micro-injuries into the skin. These microneedles penetrate as deep as 4 mm under the skin (more than most skin rejuvenation devices). This allows the plastic surgeon to direct RF energy towards the adipose fat responsible for jowls’ development.
Through the microneedles, the device delivers short pulses of RF energy, to which the skin reacts through the production of fresh collagen, making way for improved skin texture and tone and tighter dermal tissue.
From the moment you leave the procedure room, it will take approximately 3 to 4 weeks for you to notice substantial improvements. As a rule of thumb, for optimal results, we recommend that you divide your Morpheus8 treatment into 3 to 4 sessions spaced four weeks apart. You will continuously notice improvements for the first 3-6 after the procedure and the final results after one year.
Is There an Ideal Morpheus8 Candidate?
Are you starting to notice issues associated with sun exposure or natural skin aging, such as clogged pores, sagging skin, or smile lines? Morpheus8 is the perfect solution for you, as it provides the following benefits to patients in good health and without severe skin conditions:
- Deals with natural aging signs, such as fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduces acne scars and loose, saggy skin
- Refreshes the appearance with skin tightening
- Decreases pore size
- Improves the skin texture and tone
Is Morpheus8 Painful?
Compared with surgical treatments, patients who opt for Morpheus8 deal with mild to tolerable pain levels. Prior to the procedure, Dr. William J. Vinyard, MD, FACS, will apply a numbing cream to make the whole experience as painless as possible. Dr. Vinyard puts the patient’s comfort above all else, which is why he can adapt Morpheus8 to the patient’s pain tolerance levels through different techniques (e.g., lowering energy levels, doing more passes with the device).
Morpheus8 Postprocedural Care
After you leave the procedure room, your skin will require some time to adjust itself to the new reality and show improvements. For the first few days, it is essential that you keep the treatment area away from excessive sunlight, sweating, and makeup.
That’s where your skincare routine comes to the rescue. Using a basic 3-step skincare program based on cleaning, hydrating, and protecting, can bring your Morpheus8 results to the next level. Let’s take a closer look at these three factors and how they can improve both your recovery and results:
- Cleaning – use a superior skin cleanser to refresh your skin while keeping it away from environmental pollutants and preventing excess oil, such as the SkinMedica® Facial Cleanser.
- Hydrating – we recommend that you use the SkinMedica® HA⁵® Rejuvenating Hydrator that supports the skin’s natural ability to retain moisture, delivering a radiant, rejuvenated skin tone and texture.
- Protecting – defend your skin against harmful UV and infrared rays with the Essential Defense Mineral Shield Broad Spectrum SPF by SkinMedica®.
As we said earlier, beautiful skin requires commitment, not a miracle, which is why applying your skincare routine constantly is the golden rule of thumb for both superior Morpheus8 results and skin rejuvenation.

According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected under the skin. They address wrinkles, fine lines, and creases by smoothing them out, softening them, and enhancing the contour of the face. Men and women often choose this treatment as a cost-effective way to achieve a younger look without surgery or extended recovery.
