Why Your Beverly Hills Dermatologist Wishes You Knew the Benefits of Morpheus8

Posted on: June 4th, 2024 by andrea

Over time, skin loses elasticity and firmness, causing it to sag, wrinkle, and form fine lines. The appearance of these common signs of aging can make you look older and constantly tired.

But you can turn back the hands of time with Morpheus8, a revolutionary cosmetic treatment that can help your skin look firmer, younger, and more supple. Keep reading to learn more about Morpheus8, its safety and effectiveness, and why your Beverly Hills dermatologist wishes you knew about the benefits of Morpheus8!

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a cutting-edge anti-aging treatment that utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy and microneedling to rejuvenate the skin.

Combining these two powerful technologies, Morpheus8 contours the skin and improves its tone and overall appearance, restoring a youthful look.


Microneedling creates controlled tiny openings in the skin. These small openings initiate the skin’s natural healing process, stimulating the production of elastin and collagen in the targeted areas.

Collagen and elastin gradually firm and smooth the skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

Radiofrequency Energy

The gold-plated tips of the microneedles simultaneously deliver radiofrequency energy that releases controlled heat into the deeper layers of the skin. The heat triggers collagen remodeling while promoting coagulation.

During collagen remodeling, the collagen fibers contract, firming and tightening the skin. Radiofrequency energy coagulates fatty tissue, leading to a more contoured appearance.

The heat further prompts the production of new collagen, which replaces old, damaged collagen. This new collagen contains stronger fibers that tighten saggy skin, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and improve the appearance of surgical scars and acne scarring.

What are the Benefits of Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 offers a multitude of benefits, including:

Diminishes Fine Lines and Wrinkles

By stimulating collagen and elastin production, Morpheus8 effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Patients experience noticeably firmer and more youthful-looking skin a few weeks after their treatment.

Improves Skin Tightening

The radiofrequency technology in Morpheus8 contracts existing collagen fibers and boosts the production of new collagen. This combined approach tightens and lifts loose, sagging skin, helping patients attain a smoother, more refined skin texture.

Corrects Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is a condition that causes the skin to darken. It can be caused by age, sun damage, certain medications, and hormones during pregnancy.

Morpheus8 encourages the even distribution of melanin, which helps reduce dark spots and evens skin tone.

Decreases Acne Scarring

Microneedles used in Morpheus8 create controlled micro-abrasions in the skin. The process activates the body’s renewal process, which generates new, healthy skin cells. Over time, this helps reduce the appearance of acne scars.

Enhances Skin Texture

Morpheus8 harnesses the power of radiofrequency energy to promote the remodeling of skin tissue. This smooths out uneven skin texture, leaving patients with a smoother, more supple skin texture.

Minimally Invasive

Unlike traditional facelifts and other skin-tightening surgeries, Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive way to rejuvenate skin. Patients can achieve impressive results without incisions, sutures, and the downtime associated with surgeries.

Customizable Treatment

Each Morpheus8 treatment can be fine-tuned to more effectively address a patient’s unique skin concerns. Your Moy-Fincher-Chipps dermatologist achieves this by adjusting the intensity of the radiofrequency energy and depth of the microneedles to treat specific areas of the face or body.

Versatile Treatment

Morpheus8’s versatility makes it the perfect solution for targeting a range of concerns or attaining overall skin rejuvenation. The treatment can be used on various areas, including the face, neck, arms, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.

Lasting Results

Morpheus8’s results can be enjoyed for up to a year, making it a cost-effective investment for long-term skincare goals. With good maintenance, the rejuvenating effects of Morpheus8 can even last for up to three years.

Many patients notice improvements after only one session, with optimal results often achieved after three to four sessions of treatment.

Suitable for All Skin Types

Thanks to Morpheus8’s colorblind technology, the treatment can be safely used on all skin types. Anyone with sensitive, dry, oily, or combination skin can have the procedure.

Even darker skin tones can be treated with minimal risk of post-procedure inflammatory hyperpigmentation. However, the only way to determine if you’re a good candidate for Morpheus8 is to schedule a consultation with one of the dermatologists at Moy-Fincher-Chipps.

The Safety and Effectiveness of Morpheus8

Selecting a qualified provider to perform your Morpheus8 procedure in Beverly Hills is crucial to ensuring optimal results. Just like two chefs can prepare a dish with the same exact ingredients and tools differently, two Morpheus8 providers can perform the same procedure but achieve vastly different results.

Achieving your desired results depends on skill level, technique, and attention to detail. Different chefs have varying levels of expertise in the kitchen and can use different techniques.

Consequently, they may end up with two completely different results.

In the same way, the experience and skill of a Morpheus8 provider determine the success of treatment.

A skilled and experienced Morpheus8 provider has the technical ability, knowledge, and expertise to perform the procedure correctly. They can help patients attain the desired results and prevent complications.

Morpheus8 utilizes radiofrequency energy and microneedles that are adjusted based on a patient’s individual needs. In the hands of an underqualified or inexperienced practitioner with little knowledge of the device and settings, Morpheus8 can cause complications such as:

  • Blisters
  • Burning
  • Grid marks
  • Orange peel skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Loss of facial volume
  • Scarring due to poor aftercare

Only Performed by Certified Professionals

Morpheus8 is a highly effective and safe treatment that produces excellent anti-aging results. However, it must be performed by an expert to avoid the risk of long-term skin damage.

This means choosing a certified professional experienced in performing Morpheus8 procedures. Moy-Fincher-Chipp’s experienced dermatologists understand the nuances of Morpheus8 treatment.
