Let’s get started!

What is Morpheus8®?

Morpheus8® is a cutting-edge subdermal adipose remodelling device (SARD) that combines microneedling technology and radiofrequency energy to remodel the inner layers of the skin. It is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that can produce impressive results in the hands of an expert.

Our skin care experts can properly target the skin’s building blocks with micro-injuries and RF waves, triggering the body’s natural healing, remodelling, and anti-aging process. The Morpheus8® treatment can target the innermost layer of the skin and can produce skin tightening, resurfacing, and anti-aging results that are incredibly noticeable and dramatic. 

Because of its minimally-invasive nature, Morpheus8® does not come with the risk of getting post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Know that it will not make the treated areas darker than the rest of your skin. 

What Skin Concerns Is Morpheus8® Best Suited for Treating?

Morpheus8® offers a complete skin rejuvenation package. This laser-based cosmetic treatment is proven effective in addressing a wide range of concerns, such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles due to skin aging 
  • Skin laxity 
  • Sagging, or loose skin 
  • Acne scarring
  • Discoloration
  • Stretchmarks

What Skin Types Does Morpheus8® Work On?

Morpheus8® works well and is suited for all skin types and skin tones. Aside from the face, our cosmetic laser technicians or skincare specialists use it with ease in treating issues in the jawline, neck, abdomen, buttocks, and arms. 

What Does SARD Mean and What Can It Do?

The Morpheus8® treatment utilizes a SARD, which means “subdermal adipose remodelling device.” By combining microneedling technology and radiofrequency energy to remodel the inner layers of the skin. 

It delivers the deepest fractional treatments in the world of medical aesthetics. The SARD penetrates subdermal tissue for up to 8mm (7mm + 1mm thermal profile) through its compact device that conveniently facilitates a full face and body treatment. The before and after photos of our patients will surely convince you of this treatment’s age-rewinding benefits. 

Through the SARD device, the Morpheus8® is able to carry out skin rejuvenation efficiently, in all levels.

How Does the Morpheus8® Laser Treatment Compare to Other Laser Treatments?

The Morpheus8® is better than other laser-based treatments for several reasons. First, the treatment offers versatility when it comes to application and speed of achieving desired results. Next, Morpheus8® is a minimally invasive procedure, which means that there is little to no downtime during the healing process. 

Patients who wish for subdermal renewal or sculpting treatments have specific needs. The Morpheus8® treatment is a sophisticated procedure that can fully cater to all these needs. With the hands of a skilled medical aesthetic professional, the Morpheus8® can achieve the level of results each client wants.

How does the Morpheus8® Treatment Work? 

In reality, the Morpheus8® treatment is as hassle-free and easy as can be. Depending on the extent of the size of the treatment area, a Morpheus8® session takes less than 30 minutes when performed in our Oakville clinic. It’s a quick procedure that causes minimal discomfort compared to the results it can offer. 

Patients are asked to come in for their appointment an hour before the treatment time. The APT clinical staff will prep and cleanse the treatment site, with patients given topical numbing cream to allow more comfort during the session. 

The Morpheus8® device will be passed two to three times on the treated area and will work on the subdermal level of the skin. It can achieve one of the deepest fractional treatments and subdermal adipose remodelling by synergizing the benefits of two efficient skincare technologies: microneedling and radiofrequency. These two have been used separately for their benefits, but Morpheus8® has combined the two to give the best of both worlds when it comes to results. 

To explain further, microneedling is a minimally invasive, non-surgical cosmetic procedure that creates slight controlled injuries to the skin to make new collagen-rich tissue. As a result, new skin tissue will form that is even in texture and tone. On the other hand, radiofrequency procedures are similar to ultrasound therapy, in a way that both make use of heat energy to stimulate elastin and collagen production in the body. RF energy can also be utilized to target specific adipose tissue (fat cells) to induce fat remodelling. 

The Morpheus8® procedure combines the aspects of microneedling and RF energy to create incredible results that last. The Morpheus8® treatment uses microneedles, not just to create micro-injuries, but also to administer RF waves into the deeper layers of the skin. This stimulates the body’s natural healing response and collagen production, remodelling the skin and giving it a firm and even appearance. 

How Often Should You Get Morpheus8®?

The number of Morpheus8® treatment sessions you need will depend on the kind and severity of the skincare issue being addressed. Your aesthetician determines this after a thorough consultation and physical assessment. To achieve your desired results, you may be advised to get two to three sessions, administered four to six weeks apart. 

How Long Do Morpheus8® Results Last?

Morpheus8® has a strong reputation for its instant results. Right after your session, you will notice a difference in the quality of your skin. The full effects will show within a couple of months once you have completed all your recommended sessions. Expect to see continuous and consistent improvements in your skin’s flawlessness and elasticity in the coming months as new collagen is produced. 

Can I Shower After A Morpheus8® Treatment?

You can shower as usual, as there are no solid restrictions on bathing, except to treat the skin gently and avoid scrubbing and exfoliating. Don’t apply any lotions or oils after showering. It will also help to avoid sun exposure to reduce the chances of developing hyperpigmentation.
