1 Morpheus8 (Radio-frequency Microneedling) – MD Skin Lab Canada


(Radiofrequency Microneedling)

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is an advanced microneedling procedure that incorporates Radiofrequency (RF) energy to rejuvenate the skin. It targets the dermis (skin’s deeper layer) to regenerate tissue by stimulating collagen and elastin.

Following 3-4 treatments, patients can see an improvement in lines and wrinkles, pore size and texture, firmer and smoother skin, and brighter overall complexion. It’s especially beneficial for tightening skin around the lower face, jowls, and neck.

How does Morpheus8 work?

During treatment, tiny needles are deployed into the dermis at short intervals while delivering a burst of RF energy. The tiny micro-punctures stimulate a healing reaction in the skin while the heat generated by the RF heats up the collagen fibers, causing them to contract.

Together these two processes promote neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen), thickening the dermal layers, noticeably revitalizing the skin, and improving its appearance.

What areas are treatable with Morpheus8?

Almost any area of the face (including the eyelids) and body can be treated with Morpheus8, Toronto. This includes the neck, back, abdomen, knees, and hands. Anywhere you may have prematurely aged skin, sun damage, lines and wrinkles or sagging, this treatment can help reverse the damage and reveal smoother, more youthful skin.
