Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive fractional skin treatment that combines microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy. This safe and effective treatment focuses on the deep layers of the skin by stimulating the body’s natural collagen and elastin building responses and tightening skin to be smooth and radiant again.
Morpheus8, also known as a collagen-induction treatment, uses 24 microneedles and RF energy to renew the skin and encourage the natural anti-ageing process. Making this treatment perfect to give amazing results like tight smooth skin, reduced acne scars and improved skin tone that glows.
Visible skin tightening results can be seen within just a few days, but more noticeable results typically appear after three weeks. Improvements will continue over a period of three months after treatment.
Morpheus8 results can last up to 12 – 18 months. The maintenance of these results will depend on lifestyle factors including sun exposure and smoking. Patients may need annual follow up treatments to maintain and keep encouraging collagen production because the ageing process doesn’t stop.
Depending on what results you want from your Morpheus8 treatment journey, our practitioners will suggest if any maintenance sessions will be required after the three-month period to maintain your skin tightening results long term.

So, what does this speciality colour-blind technology mean for all skin types? This technology provides reassurance that no matter your skin tone, this treatment will be safe and effective. It importantly reduces the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which can commonly occur with other resurfacing treatments that aren’t right for every skin type.
Factors such as age, weight loss, weight gain and sun damage can put our appearance under a lot of pressure, leaving your skin loose, saggy and with an uneven texture.

This combined technology provides a one-two punch to our skin, kicking it into gear leaving you with a firm and revitalised appearance.

With the Morpheus8, downtime is minimal. So, we recommend that makeup can be applied 1 –2 days after the treatment. After your treatment there may be micro lesions a few days after, and for up to 1 week there may be slight redness.
Following treatment, there is minimal downtime, but the recovery time is dependent on the sensitivity and area of the treatment area sensitivity. The expected downtime also factors in the patient’s general standard of health and wellbeing.
After the treatment you may notice some potential redness and miniscule pinprick bruising. We recommend you avoid touching your treatment area to avoid irritating the skin and to prevent infection we also suggest not wearing make-up on that area for 24 hours.
At your consultation your practitioner will answer any questions you have and give you all the advice you need.
After your session, we recommend patients keep the treatment area moisturised and do their best to avoid exposing that area to direct sun. We highly recommend patients using a high SPF sunscreen every day on the area to be safe.
For best results, we initially recommend having between 1-3 sessions, however the number of treatment sessions required are also dependent on the skin being treated. Our expert clinic practitioners will have a discussion with you during your consultation about how many treatments you will need after they have assessed the treatment area and the results you want.
