Age, genetics, environmental toxins, and excessive sun exposure all make maintaining healthy, vibrant skin harder than it should be. And while our daily skincare routines can help stave off some of the unwanted effects, not all of them are so easily treatable.
Morpheus8 is the solution. It’s safe, it’s simple, it’s nonsurgical—and best of all, it’s very effective.
Morpheus8 harnesses the power of radiofrequency energy to help you restore and rejuvenate your skin without incisions, without surgery, and with little to no downtime.
What Morpheus8 is
It’s a cutting-edge proprietary technology that dramatically improves the health and appearance of both your facial skin and the skin on the rest of your body. And at Laser Clinique, Dr. Alexander Ataii will carefully curate your Morpheus8 treatment so it addresses your unique skin type.
You’ll walk away with smoother, more luscious skin that is free of many of the signs of aging, skin damage, fine lines and wrinkles, and textural irregularities.
How Morpheus8 works
To produce its results, Morpheus8 uses radiofrequency energy. The device is equipped with a series of ultrafine microneedles that carefully pierce the very top layer of your skin. The pinpricks alone spur your body into action in producing healthy collagen and elastin, and prompting cell turnover. Meanwhile, the RF energy is safely delivered to the lower layers of your skin where it’s most effective. The RF energy helps tighten and smooth your skin and remove fine lines and wrinkles.

Full facial rejuvenation
Morpheus8 can be used on all areas of the body and the face that are in need of rejuvenation, whether due to wrinkles, discoloration, sun damage, scarring, or any of the other very common cosmetic concerns. These areas most popularly include the face, the neck and the decolletage.
Morpheus8 is a perfect choice for total facial rejuvenation. It will help treat fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, cheeks, chin, temples, and under the eyes, as well as dramatically improve lackluster skin. Your facial skin won’t simply “look better,” it will actually be healthier, more vibrant and less aged—from the inside out.
Am I a candidate for Morpheus8?
Men and women of all ages who are in good general health and are hoping to improve dull, lackluster, damaged or deflated skin can benefit greatly from Morpheus8. If you have wrinkled or discolored skin, or skin that’s been impacted by the sun and environmental exposure, Morpheus8 can help you tackle that quickly and easily with little to no recovery downtime.
Results of Morpheus8
Following your Morpheus8 treatments, your skin will look more youthful, brighter and more vibrant. Your skin will not only look healthier, it will actually be more healthy. Collagen and elastin production drop off significantly with age, and Morpheus8 prompts your body to re-begin their production. The very fine controlled punctures made with Morpheus8’s surgical grade needles prompt a natural healing process of the body. Your skin starts to look more alive, less gaunt and hollow, and less wrinkled. Your skin will look less lax and saggy, and more taut and firm, less wrinkled and more smooth.
How many treatments will I need?
For the best possible results with Morpheus8, Dr. Ataii usually recommends 3 treatment sessions, each spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart. Depending on your skin condition and concerns and your goals for the procedure, you may need more or less treatment sessions.
When will I notice results?
Because Morpheus8 is the beginning of a natural process of physical healing, most patients will notice its final results 6 weeks after treatment. But, you won’t have to wait nearly that long to see and feel considerable benefit: you’ll see improvement immediately after treatment, and even more improvements within the first week of your treatment session.
Frequently Asked Questions Morpheus8How deep do the needles go? Is Morpheus8 the same as microneedling? Is Morpheus8 painful? How does the RF energy feel? Is it safe? What can I expect after Morpheus8? When can I return to work or social activities?
How deep do the needles go?
The needles of Morpehus8 puncture only the topmost layer of skin, up to a depth of 8mm.
Is Morpheus8 the same as microneedling?
No. In fact, Morphsu8 combines the already effective technology of microneedling with the even more effective use of radiofrequency energy. You’ll see better results and get them even faster.
Is Morpheus8 painful?
No. While you may experience some discomfort or a prickling sensation from the ultra fine needles, a topical anesthetic is used to make the procedure as pain free as possible. Pain medication isn’t required after the procedure, but should you experience any unexpected pain or discomfort, don’t hesitate to ask how we can help you manage that.
How does the RF energy feel? Is it safe?
You’ll feel a nice warmth pervading the skin tissue in treated areas. It’s neither painful or dangerous and the surface of the skin isn’t excessively heated, thus preventing damage.
What can I expect after Morpheus8?
You might experience some slight swelling and irritation post procedure. Stronger reactions are extremely rare; most side effects are very mild.
When can I return to work or social activities?
Technically, no downtime or recovery is needed after Morpheus8. What that means is that unlike a surgery where you do want to limit your activity and get plenty of rest, Morpheus8 requires no such period. Your face may be reddish and feel warm for 1 - 3 days after your treatment session, but that mild discomfort tends to dissipate quickly on its own. (Most patients actually recover fully within a few hours.)
