Dr. Kwak is pleased and excited to offer his clients the cutting-edge technology of InMode’s Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling device. This innovative anti-aging solution can be customized to the patient’s unique skin condition and comfort level. Morpheus8 can address early facial sagging, scarring, wrinkles and lines, and a loss of definition in the jawline, among other concerns, delivering a tighter, firmer complexion with very little downtime.

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a skin remodeling technology that uses SARD (subdermal adipose remodeling device) to deliver potent fractional radiofrequency energy deep into the skin. Without invasive surgery, it works to tighten, tone, and revitalize the complexion by combining two state-of-the-art anti-aging solutions – microneedling and radiofrequency – into one powerful approach.

Scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, and enlarged pores can all be reduced using Morpheus8. Day by day, the body begins to produce more collagen, firming and volumizing the skin from within. The result is a dramatic improvement in youthfulness and self-confidence.

How does Morpheus8 work?

Collagen is a protein found naturally in the human body. In youth, it is abundant, giving the skin a supple, hydrated glow. As we age, our supply of collagen begins to get depleted, leaving the complexion looking hollow and withered. Morpheus8 works by creating multiple micro-injuries to the skin that stimulate the body to regenerate collagen, which over time can smooth and refresh your appearance. Morpheus8 is unique in the fact that it can deliver powerful radiofrequency energy into the subdermal layers, remodeling and reshaping the underlying skin tissue. It is ideal for addressing the early signs of aging, such as sunken jowls and laxity in the jawline.

Before & After

Morpheus8 New York City

Who is an ideal candidate for Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is safe and effective for a wide range of skin types due to its low risk of hyperpigmentation. Thanks to its small applicator, the treatment can be used on many different areas of the body where tissue remodeling is desired. Patients with early facial sagging around the jawline and neck will be especially good candidates, as will those with acne scarring.

During a private consultation, Dr. Kwak and his team will evaluate your skin and determine if Morpheus8 is a good fit. If your goal is tighter, more youthful skin without surgery, you are likely a good candidate.

What is the recovery time for Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is non-surgical and non-invasive, so there is no downtime to contend with. You will be able to resume your normal activities within 24-48 hours. Patients may experience minor redness akin to a sunburn for up to 7 days, however. You will need to consistently wear sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays after treatment.

When will I see results?

While you will see some initial improvements right away, your results will continue to evolve over the course of 3-6 months as collagen production in the body ramps up. Once your outcome has reached maturity, you will see firmer, tighter skin long-term.

What is the difference between Morpheus8 and traditional microneedling?

Microneedling is a procedure to renew the body’s natural collagen reserves that have been depleted by the aging process. It creates tiny micro-wounds that trigger the body to heal itself. Radiofrequency energy is another form of collagen induction therapy that can be added on to microneedling to make it more powerful and effective. Profound remodeling of the skin tissue takes place with more dramatic results than could be created through either treatment by itself.

Are Morpheus8 treatments painful?

Surprisingly, Morpheus8 is virtually painless. The microneedles are ultra-fine, and the process is automated, so it is highly efficient, cutting down on discomfort. Your skin will be treated to a topical anesthetic prior to your session. You will only feel a minor prick as the needles make contact, along with a warm sensation from the radiofrequency energy.

How many Morpheus8 treatment sessions will I need?

Most patients experience improvements after a single session. Depending on the skin’s condition, this may be all that is required to achieve your cosmetic goals. More significant issues such as scarring, stretch marks, and skin laxity may need multiple appointments. Dr. Kwak and his team will give you a clearer picture of what is needed after your private consultation.

How long do Morpheus8 treatments take?

Each session can last from 30-60 minutes.

How long will my Morpheus8 results last?

The longevity of your results depends on many different factors, including how many sessions you underwent, your level of exposure to the sun, your habits, lifestyle, and the natural aging process. Results after a single session can last for months.

What are the side effects of Morpheus8?

Pinpoint bleeding may occur after a Morpheus8 session, but this usually lasts only a few minutes. The skin may appear red for the first week, and some patients can experience mild swelling that resolves within 24-72 hours.
