Morpheus8, is a unique, sub-dermal, adipose remodelling, radio-frequency (RF) device, which fractionally remodels and contours the face and body. The device delivers immediate results for patients, as well as more uniform, symmetrical, long-lasting and consistent outcomes by treating the subcutaneous fatty layers as well as the superficial layers of the skin. Morpheus8’s stand-out innovation comes from the use of fractionated RF energy into sub-dermal tissue. Typically, similar bipolar RF technologies on the market work exclusively in the superficial layers of the skin and patients may opt for surgery to reach the sub-dermal tissue for moderate and severe cases of laxity and wrinkles. However, Morpheus8 can work within the epidermis as well as the sub-dermal layers; providing more effective and longer-lasting results. With programmable penetration, depth and energy delivery, Morpheus8 is the ideal device for the treatment of fine lines & wrinkles, acne scars and general skin tone. 24 coated pins penetrate into the sub-dermal tissue, tightening fat and contracting connective tissue. Fractionated RF energy is scientifically proven to reduce wrinkles whilst rebuilding collagen and contracting the fatty tissue. It is minimally invasive with almost no downtime.
