Micro-needling is a beauty procedure that’s been around for a long time but has exploded in popularity in recent years. More and more people are making this minimally invasive procedure a regular part of their beauty routine because of the impressive results it can bring. But Morpheus8 is different from other micro-needling treatments because it penetrates deeper into the skin than any other device. This leads to even better results that are sure to blow you away! Read on to learn more about this special treatment and how Blurr’d Lines Medical Spa can tranform your skin.
How does Morpheus8 work?
It’s a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production. By targeting deeper layers of the skin, it results in a natural anti-aging process. What makes this specific treatment unique is that it penetrates 4mm deep into your skin which results in fat melting, meaning you can contour and morph different areas of your body. The most commonly treated areas are the face and neck but other areas, such as the stomach, can be treated too.
Who is Morpheus8 good for?
This treatment is applicable in a wide variety of situations. A consultation will give you the best idea of if it’s right for your specific circumstances but let’s review some of the common reasons people turn to this treatment.
Morpheus8 and hyperpigmentation
Collagen’s amino acids help to fade hyperpigmentation over time. They provide strength and structure to the skin, allowing it to repair damaged skin cells. Since micro-needling helps boost collagen production, Morpheus8 has been shown to help repair hyperpigmented skin and improve your skin’s texture.
Morpheus8 and acne
While micro-needling won’t help prevent acne itself, it does help treat acne scarring and discoloration. In fact, visible results can be seen within just a few days. The most noticeable results will come after a few weeks.
Morpheus8 under eyes
Morpheus8 is the best non-surgical treatment for under eye wrinkles. Under eye wrinkles are one of the most common insecurities, and this treatment can truly make a lasting impact on them.
Morpheus8 skin tightening
The treatment helps improve the appearance of wrinkles, double chins, saggy jowls, and cellulite by tightening the skin. With continued treatments, the results can be quite severe.
Morpheus8 stretch marks
The treatment can help eliminate scarring, and stretch marks are no exception. Depending on the severity of laxity and skin quality, the number of necessary appointments for effective treatment may vary.
Is Morpheus8 like a facelift?
A facelift is an invasive procedure with a lengthy recovery time. Morpheus8 is unlike a facelift in that respect. However, it is much like a facelift when it comes to the results you can potentially see. The goal of a facelift is to receive a smoother, firmer, facial appearance to look more youthful. Morpheus8 can provide similar results while still ensuring you look like yourself.
Is Morpheus8 permanent? How long does Morpheus8 last?
Like most other procedures, the results of Morpheus8 don’t last forever. However, they do last 1-3 years, depending on your skin. Thankfully, since the treatment is minimally invasive and doesn’t require a major change in your day to day life, it’s easy to fit more treatments into your schedule in the future if you wish to do so.
Can I combine Morpheus8 with other treatments?
Yes! While Morpheus8 leads to pretty stunning results on its own, we understand you might want to combine it with other treatments to get even more impressive results. You can combine treatments in the same session or get a separate treatment a few days later.
Morpheus8 and Botox
Botox can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles but also to treat excessive sweating or migraines. No matter your reason for considering Botox, both treatments can work together. Using both might be particularly useful if your frown lines, forehead wrinkles, etc. are deep and need extra attention.

Morpheus8 or micro-needling
As mentioned before, while Morpheus8 does make use of micro-needling techniques, it varies from general forms of micro-needling because the device penetrates deeper into your skin. If you’re debating between the two options, Morpheus8 is the better option if you want more noticeable results.
What is Morpheus8 recovery like?
You can apply makeup 1-2 days after treatment. You can expect to see micro-lesions for a few days after and slight redness for up to one week after. Your skin may also crust and peel for 2-7 days after treatment. Aside from this, no bandages or wraps are necessary, and there are no restrictions on bathing.
The only recommendations are avoiding mask use for 48 hours, moisturizing the treatment area, and avoiding direct sun exposure during this time.
Essentially, you can expect to return to your normal daily routine.
Is Morpheus8 painful?
Even with all the benefits on your mind, it’s understandable if worrying about being in pain during the procedure is something you’re thinking about too. Thankfully, the entire process is often described as bringing some discomfort more than being painful.
Still, if you’re feeling extra anxious about the procedure, you can ask about Pro-Nox during your consultation. It’s a breathing treatment add-on given during your procedure to help alleviate pain and anxiety to ensure you’re feeling comfortable and confident the whole way through.
