Morpheus 8 is one of the newest and most dynamic skin tightening and fat reduction treatments available. It combines micro-needling with heat therapy to target a large range of concerns both at the skin’s surface and deeper, at the subcutaneous fat layers.
The Morpheus 8 device uses Radio Frequency energy applied to specific depths in the skin to generate heat, known as Subdermal Adipo-Dermal Remodelling. This causes controlled heat damage which triggers a completely natural healing response leading to tissue renewal and regeneration. Natural collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid are stimulated along with dermal thickening, which ultimately leads to skin tightening, skin quality improvement and the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Used at a deeper level by your practitioner, the Morpheus 8 treatment can also target fat, using RF energy to shrink fat cells, therefore causing fat reduction.
Morpheus 8 can be used on areas of the face, neck, decolletage and body, using different needle tips and settings to target your concerns. Morpheus 8 has been tailor designed for all skin types. Where other micro needling and radio frequency devices can pose a significant risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation in darker skin types, Morpheus 8 differentiates itself with its cutting edge, evidence-based technology that benefits all skin types equally, being proven to avoid the risk of PIH. Results can be expected to be seen 4 weeks from your treatment date and fully realised at 3 months.
During Morpheus8 treatment we apply a strong numbing cream to the treated area. Alternatively, we can offer local anesthetic injections if preferable, but this will need to be discussed with our Doctors to assess suitability.
Morpheus 8 Under Eye treatment is available as an add-on to your treatment for those looking to specifically target under-eye lines, wrinkles and dark circles in this area.
Q. Will the procedure hurt?
Morpheus 8 is a more intensive treatment than your average filler or toxin injection, and therefore requires use of a numbing agent to make the procedure more comfortable for you. This will be applied topically and left for 20-40 minutes before carrying out treatment to allow the anaesthetic to take effect. During the treatment you may feel some pinching and minor pain when the needles enter your skin and the RF current is applied. After treatment, you will continue to feel residual heat in the area treated, this is good as it helps you gain optimal results, but may cause some mild discomfort for a short time after treatment.
Q. What are the aftercare procedures?
After treatment, you may experience some residual heat and swelling from the treatment, and rarely, some small scabbing at the entry point of the needles which will resolve in 1-5 days. No makeup may be worn for the first 24 hours after treatment and you will need to wait 5-7 days before continuing use of any active skincare products e.g. Retinoids. Please see your post-treatment aftercare for full details of all aftercare procedures you should follow.
Q. Are there any reasons I wouldn’t be suitable for Morpheus 8?
While Morpheus 8 is still a non-invasive treatment, it is a more intensive treatment than injectable filler or toxin and therefore there are some reasons why you may not be suitable for Morpheus 8 treatment, some of the most common include:
- Pacemaker or internal defibrillator
- Permanent implant in the treated area such as metal plates, screws and metal piercing or silicon
- Current or history of skin cancer, or any other type of cancer, or pre-malignant moles
- Pregnancy and nursing
- Severe concurrent conditions, such as cardiac disorders or sensory disturbances
- Impaired immune system due to immunosuppressive diseases such as AIDS, or use of immunosuppressive medications
- Poorly controlled diabetes or thyroid dysfunction and hormonal virilization
- Any active skin condition in the treatment area, such as sores, psoriasis, eczema, and rash
- History of skin disorders, keloids, abnormal wound healing, as well as very dry and fragile skin
- After use of a sunbed, or any form of tanning, you will need to postpone treatment by 2-3 weeks
- Use of Isotretinoin (Accutane®) within 6 months prior to treatment
- History of bleeding coagulopathies or use of anticoagulants in the last 10 days
If you are looking to combine this treatment with injectable fillers or toxin, you will need to wait 2 weeks after any toxin injections, and 6 months after any filler injections in the treatment area. Additional filler injections in the area will need to be postponed by 3 months from your Morpheus 8 treatment date.
Q. Treatment, Travelling and Big Events?
Flying can increase the chances of swelling after your treatment, this isn’t a problem and it is still possible to travel around your appointment, but we would recommend using ice to combat any swelling that you may experience.
We advise booking far in advance of any big events you have coming up, to allow any swelling to subside and allow us to address any issues or top ups that my need performing to maximise your results. We ask all of our patients who have big events coming up, to get in contact with us before booking so we can best arrange your treatment to happen at the recommended number of weeks before your event.
Q. When can I go back to work?
You can return to work immediately after your treatment, though you may experience some residual heating in the skin and swelling. Some irritation in the area may persist for the first 1-5 days and you should follow your aftercare procedures carefully to make sure you get the most out of your treatment.

Dr Sanjay is amazing and really good at his work and very knowledgeable. He is really good at advising what treatment to recommend to his patient as well as answering any questions. He is one of the best I have visited and even in COVID times the clinic is very safe and efficient. I am excited to see the end results after my review appointment and can not wait to visit Trikwan Aesthetics again for further treatments.
