There is a saying “with age, comes wisdom” but the saying does not disclose that age will also bring wrinkles, crepey, or sagging skin, and dark circles under our eyes. If you are experiencing any of these issues due to age or possibly weight loss, Morpheus8 will be a procedure you will want to take a closer look at. The average cost of one Morpheus8 session is $900-$1,200 depending on the size and amount of the areas being treated.
What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a treatment that can be used on the face or body to help repair and restore what has been lost or damaged. This non-surgical procedure uses radiofrequency energy coupled with microneedling to strategically target and treat even the smallest areas.
Sun exposure, weight gain, weight loss, and aging can cause damage to our skin and cause it to lose elasticity, sag, creating wrinkles and fine lines, create stretch marks, or develop patches of hyperpigmentation.
How Does Morpheus8 Repair the Skin?
Many functions in our body naturally slow down as we age including the collagen and elastin, which once rapidly produced in our youth, diminishes. Morpheus8 helps jumpstart the production of new collagen by combining two very powerful treatments.
During the treatment, radiofrequency energy is delivered through a hand-held device while it is also using very small needles to pierce the skin and create tiny injuries. The radiofrequency can liquify some unwanted fat as well as reach deep down into the skin’s layers and begin the process of restructuring tissue from within.
What Can Morpheus8 Do?
Morpheus8 can restore the elasticity of the skin, visibly tightening its appearance. It can also:
- Lighten or eliminate stretch marks;
- Fade, reduce, or remove acne scars;
- Fade or eliminate spots of hyperpigmentation;
- Tighten loose skin;
- Remove or reduce wrinkles and lines;
- Restore a healthy youthful glow to the skin on the face and body;
- Create contour and definition to areas of the body including the area just under the chin;
- Eliminate “chicken skin”, dark circles, or puffiness in the under-eye area.
Morpheus8 can also be used in conjunction with other treatments such as BodyTite to create a mini breast lift, etc.
Which Parts of the Body Can Benefit from Morpheus8?
- Abdomen, stomach;
- Upper arms;
- Above the knees;
- Bra roll;
- Under chin;
- Under eyes;
- Breasts, decolletage.
Is Morpheus8 a Surgery?
No, this is the most fabulous thing about Morpheus8! It can produce amazing results on many parts of the body that once could only be achieved through surgery! All without even one incision, the use of general anesthesia, or any associated scarring.
How Much Does Morpheus8 Cost?
The cost of Morpheus8 will vary by which area of the body is being treated or if multiple areas are treated at the same time. Many cosmetic surgeons offer package prices that normally include 3 treatments. Although patients can see significant results after the first treatment, some skin issues such as scarring may need more than one session for optimal results.
Some People Ask, “Why Morpheus8 Is So Expensive?” But Is It?
Let’s look at some average costs of cosmetic surgery according to the 2020 published statistics by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
These costs are only averages and are not all-inclusive. In addition to these costs, there will be surgery-related fees to cover items such as the cost of the surgeon, anesthesia, supplies, etc.

While it is not the same as surgery, the overall results can be comparable in some situations. What would it be worth to you to gain more youthful-looking, tighter, healthy, skin without the scars and recovery time of surgery?
Patients with a significant amount of loose skin, such as after undergoing bariatric surgery, will typically require traditional surgical intervention to correct.
How Fast Will You See the Results of Morpheus8?
Most patients notice results as early as a few days after having a Morpheus8 procedure but results continue to improve over 3-4 months as new collagen is formed.
Do Morpheus8 Results Last Forever?
If consistent and proper care is taken of the skin, the results of Morpheus8 can be long-lasting. One of the most valuable results delivered by the use of radiofrequency in the procedure is the creation of new collagen and elastin deep within the skin layers as well as on the surface.
If you are unhappy with loose skin, fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, or scarring, Morpheus8 may be an excellent solution for you! There is no need for invasive surgery when radiofrequency assisted microneedling is available.
