WHAT IS MORPHEUS8?
Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that pairs microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. It uses tiny needles to deliver RF energy deep into your skin, creating micro lesions that trigger your body’s natural healing response and promote production of new collagen and elastin, to firm and remodel skin.
Morpheus8 benefits a wide range of skin concerns. It can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, tighten lax skin, smooth out rough or uneven skin texture, treat hyperpigmentation and acne scarring, help fade stretch marks, and even reduce some fat (though not significantly enough that you’d have to worry about volume loss in your face). Morpheus8 can be used anywhere on the body, including the abdomen or buttocks, though it’s most popular for the face, jawline, and neck.
For optimal results, you’ll need a series of up to three sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart.
HOW DOES MORPHEUS8 WORK?
Morpheus8 combines microneedling and radiofrequency energy, two skin rejuvenation treatments that are proven to be effective.
Microneedling uses needles to puncture the skin. It’s called collagen-induction therapy because the repeated puncturing of the skin causes microtrauma that initiates a recovery cascade of collagen production in the skin. Morpheus8 uses micropuncturing of the skin with needles, but there is also radiofrequency energy delivered into the skin.
Both the dermis and epidermis (lower and upper layers of the skin) are affected, so you see deep remodeling and resurfacing. Microneedling RF delivers electrical energy that causes coagulation in the tissues, meaning there are exfoliation and collagen remodeling, improving the texture and tone of the skin at the same time that it causes the skin to tighten.
Your skin continues to improve over the next three months as skin cells turn over and new collagen develops.
The treatment takes 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the treated area. Your doctor begins by covering the treatment area with numbing cream, which may need up to an hour to take effect. If your provider plans to use a higher setting on the device, you may need local anesthesia.
What sets Morpheus8 apart from similar microneedling devices is that the depth of the radiofrequency heat delivered by its microneedles can be customized to reach different depths of the dermal layers (e.g., superficial, intermediate, deep), so your provider can adjust it based on your specific skin concerns.
First, they should do a test spot, to make sure you don’t have any adverse reactions. Then they’ll stamp the device across your skin, allowing the needles to puncture below the surface and deliver the radiofrequency energy.
You may feel pressure and dull discomfort during the procedure, but it’s typically not too painful, due to the numbing cream.
You may begin to see the benefits of Morpheus8 within a few days of your first treatment and some skin tightening within three weeks.
You typically see results—such as tightening, softening of lines, and improvement in acne scarring—with one to three treatments. New collagen takes time to develop, so full results will be apparent about three months after your final session.
Morpheus8 results last about a year, so you’ll need an annual follow-up session in order to maintain ramped-up collagen production.
Morpheus8 skin resurfacing can safely benefit all skin types and tones, addressing a broad range of skin concerns.
Given its stimulating effect on collagen production, the treatment excels at tightening mildly sagging skin, smoothing wrinkles, and minimizing other signs of aging. Microneedling with radiofrequency energy is also particularly effective at improving the appearance of acne scars—though you shouldn’t pursue it if you still have active acne: needles moving in and out of the skin can spread breakout-causing bacteria.
The microneedling aspect of Morpheus8 helps resurface the top layer of skin, so people with sun damage and dark spots should see clearer, brighter, more evenly toned skin post-treatment.
Most notably, Morpheus8 is a safe option for people with dark skin who might otherwise be at risk of hypo- or hyperpigmentation from other resurfacing treatments, like lasers. Your provider can choose a needle-type that’s safest for your skin tone. They can opt for coated microneedles that emanate heat only from their very tips, precisely targeting the deeper layers of the skin without causing undue damage to the skin’s surface, or uncoated needles that emanate heat along their full length.
Side effects of Morpheus 8 may include transient redness and swelling. It is possible that some patients may experience temporary bruising. The microneedling aspect of treatment may leave tiny points on the skin that crust and flake off. Mild tenderness or soreness may result from the absorption of RF energy and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Our team will discuss the side effects you might experience during your consultation and decision regarding the extent of your treatment plan.
Optimal results may be achieved in as little as one treatment or through a series of treatments conducted over a period of several weeks. We can make an accurate estimate of treatment outcome by observing the condition of your skin, including texture, tone, and laxity, during your consultation.
If microneedling and radio frequency with Morpheus 8 is performed as a stand-alone treatment, it may be possible to apply makeup as soon as the day after treatment. Adding adjunct procedures may increase that gap up to one week.
WHAT IS Profound RF Microneedling?
The Profound treatment is a nonsurgical alternative for treating facial wrinkles . It combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with ultrafine needles (microneedles) to renew your skin from within. Healthcare providers across the globe rely on the Profound treatment to provide lasting wrinkle reduction for their patients.
What can the Profound system treat?
As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity and becomes more fragile. This is a result of our body’s collagen levels decreasing, elastin production stopping and hyaluronic acid diminishing.4,12-14
The Profound treatment awakens your body’s own natural healing process by stimulating the production of these three skin elements to create younger-looking skin.
How does Profound Treatment work?
A single Profound treatment stimulates your body to naturally reproduce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to revitalize the skin and build new, healthy tissue. The Profound treatment is clinically proven to stimulate your body’s own wound-healing response to reduce the signs of aging without the use of chemicals or surgery.
It delivers precise temperatures to the deep layers of your skin, exactly where energy delivery is most beneficial. This energy breaks down tissue in order to trigger your body’s natural healing process, stimulating your body to naturally create new elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid to revitalize the skin and build new, healthy tissue.
The Profound system is an energy-based solution that produces a 100% response rate to facial wrinkles with only one treatment. The end result is younger, smoother-looking skin – with minimal downtime.
Surgery is not the only option to reduce the signs of aging. The Profound treatment is a single treatment, nonsurgical alternative to a facelift.
It awakens your body’s own natural healing process by stimulating the production of 3 skin elements: collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.1,5 These 3 elements create lasting volume and firmness for smoother-, younger-looking skin.
Prior to treatment, you will have a personalized Profound treatment consultation to determine your goals and to establish the target area for treatment. On the day of your treatment, a local anesthetic may be applied to help you manage comfort. We’ll administer treatment with the Profound system handpiece, which will deliver pulses of energy to the targeted areas.
Typically, patients can return to their normal activities within 24 hours after treatment. We’ll discuss your individual care plan and recovery during your initial consultation.
After your Profound treatment for facial wrinkle reduction, you may experience minor swelling or bruising. In clinical studies, these events resolved within 5 to 10 days, depending on treatment area and anesthesia protocol.
The Profound treatment is clinically proven to create smooth, younger-looking skin with only 1 nonsurgical treatment. In clinical studies, it was shown to reduce facial wrinkles in 100% of patients and 94% of treated thighs showed an improvement in cellulite appearance after 1 treatment.
Total treatment time is approximately 1 hour, depending on the treatment area.

EndyMed Intensif FAQs
Scars, whether they are caused by skin trauma or post-surgery scarring, are common problems for many patients. Stretch marks are also a common complaint, mostly affecting women, and happen when the skin expands rapidly. ENDYMED’s fractional technologies improve the appearance and reduce scars and stretchmarks non-invasively, with no risk and minimal downtime.
Acne can occur at any stage of life—clinical studies have shown that 40-55% of adults aged 20 to 40 are diagnosed with low-grade acne and oily skin. This is exactly why medical providers and aestheticians have a lot to gain by offering an effective active acne and acne scar removal treatment to renew the skin and reduce the appearance of all types of acne and acne scarring.
Some patients achieve results after just one session – however we recommend four to six sessions for optimal results. We’ll recommend a personalized treatment program that’s suited for you and your skin.
Treated skin goes through a process of improvements via new collagen formation. For up to 8 months after the last treatment, the treated skin will become smoother, tighter, and more vital. As most of the energy is delivered directly into the inner layer of the skin, patients will experience minimal downtime and may resume normal activities immediately.
