Morpheus 8

Have you ever noticed that even after a facelift the skin still betrays our age? That’s
because, when it comes to facial aging it’s not enough to just treat laxity – we also need
to address skin quality. In the past, this usually required multiple treatment
modalities, often with both surgery and lasers. Recently with FaceTite™ from InMode
Aesthetics, radiofrequency (RF) technology has advanced to the point where
meaningful skin tightening can be achieved without surgery. By combining RF with
micro needling we can still treat laxity and also achieve significant improvement in the
color, texture and overall appearance of the skin. It’s a powerful combination of
proven technologies to both tighten the skin and improve its quality with the added
ability to contour subdermal fat.

What is Morpheus 8?

Morpheus 8 is a new device from In Mode Aesthetics, the world’s leader in
radiofrequency technology, that takes the improvement in skin quality from
microneedling and adds the skin-tightening benefits of RF. Morpheus is revolutionary
because it treats deeper than most prior microneedling devices and it’s FDA approved
as a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device or SARD. This means that Morpheus
treats more than just the skin – by directing energy into the tissue below the skin,
difficult to treat areas like fatty necks and jowls can be contoured non-surgically. Only
topical anesthetic cream is needed and both recovery and cost are minimal.


Morpheus 8 is often combined with In Mode’s game-changing FaceTite™ technology
and this combination is known as “EmbraceRF.” At Total Aesthetics ™, we’ve been
at the forefront of this exciting technology since it’s inception.

Who is a Candidate for Morpheus 8?

This minimally invasive procedure helps improve the appearance of:

  • Mild sagging and jowling in the face and neck
  • Excess fat in the face and neck
  • Acne scarring and other scars on the face or body
  • Sun damage
  • Deep lines and Ceases
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Stretch Marks
  • Uneven or rough skin texture

At Total Aesthetics ™ we utilize Morpheus 8 as a stand-alone procedure for the indications outlined above plus:

  • As a Combined Procedure – we add Morpheus to FaceTite™ in order to obtain maximum skin tightening and also to provide added skin quality improvement. This is known as “EmbraceRF.™”
  • As a “Gap” Procedure – For patients who aren’t ready for a facelift or other surgical procedure, Morpheus, with or without FaceTite™, can “bridge the gap” with lower cost, faster recovery and less risk until you’re ready for more – all without the need for anesthesia or sedation.
  • Facelift/FaceTite™ Maintenance – A yearly treatment with Morpheus 8 may
    help maintain the results following facelift surgery and FaceTite™. You can
    continue to age gracefully and you may never need surgery in the future.

Morpheus 8 FAQs

  • What is the Morpheus 8 Recovery?

    Many patients can apply makeup the day following treatment. Mild redness and swelling may occur for a day or two.

  • Can Morpheus 8 be Combined with Other Treatments like FaceTite™ or Fractora™?

    Morpheus 8 is intended as a replacement for Fractora™ and is commonly combined with FaceTite™. This combination procedure, known as EmbraceRF™, is our current state-of-the-art, minimally-invasive facial rejuvenation for those who do not wish to undergo facelifting. At Total Aesthetics ™, Morpheus is an integral part of almost every FaceTite™ procedure and we’re one of the few facilities in the US that can offer both technologies. Combining Morpheus 8 with FaceTite™ enhances tissue tightening, adds improvement in skin color and texture and can actually sculpt adipose tissue of the face and neck.

  • Is Morpheus 8 Painful?

    Prior to treatment with Morpheus 8, a topical anesthetic cream is applied to the skin and the procedure is virtually discomfort free.

  • How Many Morpheus 8 Treatments are Needed?

    While some patients only require a single treatment, most patients will see further improvement with an additional treatment or two spaced approximately 4-5 weeks apart. We will review the texture, tone, color, and laxity of your skin during your confidential consultation and help guide you through the rejuvenation process.

Our dedicated team of nurses and administrative personnel strive to make your visit an exceptional experience.
