Morpheus8 Q & A

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a revolutionary approach to microneedling. Ordinary microneedling uses tiny needles to prick the skin, which causes irritation and encourages the body to produce collagen and elastin. 

Collagen creates a complex support network under the skin, so collagen loss (something that happens to everyone over time) causes lines and wrinkles. Simultaneously, elastin (the protein that gives skin its natural elasticity) diminishes and causes skin laxity and sagging. 

Ordinary microneedling can be helpful, but Morpheus8 takes it to a much higher level and provides more dramatic results. Instead of standard needles, it features a group of 24 gold-tipped needles.

The ends of the needles conduct radiofrequency energy, which evokes a particularly powerful healing response from your body. So, Morpheus8 can significantly magnify the effects of regular microneedling. 

Alongside its ability to stimulate skin tightening and firming, Morpheus8 can also decrease pockets of unwanted fat. 


What skin problems can Morpheus8 treat? 

HK Dermatology offers Morpheus8 for the face and body. It can treat aging skin and other problems, such as: 
  • Fine lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scars
  • Skin laxity
  • Large pores
  • Extra fat in the chin, abdomen, and other areas


Morpheus8 is a multipurpose treatment, so many patients choose this unique approach to skin rejuvenation when they have a few different concerns. 

For example, if you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles while decreasing a double chin, Morpheus8 could be the ideal approach.


How long until I see results from Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is unique among microneedling treatments because it gives you both immediate and gradual effects. The radiofrequency energy causes skin contractions that provide an instantly tighter look. Usually, a series of three treatments about 4 to 6 weeks apart are recommended.

Then, over the next few months, your body and/or face gradually makes new collagen and elastin to smooth out depressions, enhance firmness, and restore your youthful looks.


How many Morpheus8 treatments do I need?

The number of treatments you need depends on your specific concerns and desired outcome. Most patients opt for a few sessions a few weeks apart to optimize their results. 

HK Dermatology works with you to create a treatment plan that helps you get the results you want and preserve your appearance long-term.
