Morpheus 8 Technology – How It Works

Dr.U recommended Morpheus 8 would be the best approach to help her achieved the renewal that she wanted for her skin. Although it can be used to remove fat and tighten excess skin, this aesthetic technology also offers a fast and effective approach for treating hyperpigmentation and the unwanted signs of sun damage [1].

So how does it work?

In short, Morpheus 8 uses microneedles to administer radiofrequency to the skin’s surface and deeper layers below. This energy triggers healing processes in the skin while vaporizing tissue to regenerate tissue through the formation of new collagen while getting rid of unwanted melanin.

Many patients love the fact that there is minimal to no downtime. And they can start to see improvements within a short timeframe.
