Everywhere you look, someone is talking about, posting, or writing about Morpheus8. The popular nonsurgical, FDA-cleared microneedling radiofrequency (RF) treatment has become the go-to for skin tightening and collagen stimulation because it works on multiple parts of the body and face making it a win-win for many skin-related concerns. In addition, the cutting-edge Morpheus8 treatment constantly receives rave reviews for its wrinkle and line-reducing, skin-tightening, and fat-eliminating capabilities, making it an ideal treatment for overall skin rejuvenation.
All RF microneedling treatments, including Morpheus8, work by transmitting RF energy through the microneedling needles deep into the dermis to stimulate new collagen and elastin production while eliminating small pockets of excess fat. By working at a cellular level to boost collagen and elastin and reduce adipose tissue, this one-two punch amplifies the results of either treatment, making for a more dramatic effect.
If you’re considering Morpheus8 on your face, body, or both, here’s everything you need to know about the treatment, including why it’s worth every penny.
Is Morpheus8 worth the money?
We’re partial to the treatment because of the dramatic results it delivers, so we think it’s worth the money. Most patients who choose to have Morpheus8 treatments feel that its ability to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, decrease evident sun damage, lighten acne scars, and tighten the skin, all with little downtime, makes the treatment worth the price. There’s a lot that Morpheus8 provides that other lasers and procedures can’t, such as:
- Drastically improving the quality of the skin so that it’s thicker and less crepey looking
- Creating a natural firmness to the skin that isn’t the tight-looking pulled appearance that a facelift can produce
- Smoother skin texture
What affects the Morpheus8 price?
Skilled providers will always charge more money to perform a highly effective treatment than someone who is not well-versed. In the case of Morpheus8, all of our providers who perform the treatment have undergone extensive training and are best-in-class practitioners. Morpheus8 can penetrate eight millimeters deep into the skin and reduces fat, so you don’t want just anyone performing the treatment on you, especially since fat preservation in specific areas of the face is crucial to a youthful look.
Of course, the size of the area your provider will treat and the number of recommended treatments to help you achieve your goals will also factor into the total Morpheus8 price. Everyone has different needs, so what Morpheus8 costs one person may be different from someone else. Although RF microneedling can address small and large areas, the larger the treatment area, the longer the procedure takes, which increases the overall price.
Morpheus8 treatment costs are often grouped as a package versus an individual session. However, if you are only interested in one session, that can usually be arranged, but the effects of collagen stimulation are cumulative and can take months to surface. That’s why a series of Morpheus8 treatments are recommended over a standalone session.
Naturally, coupling Morpheus8 treatments with other skin rejuvenating procedures can raise the price.
Is one session of Morpheus8 enough?
Unfortunately, more than one session of Morpheus8 is needed to produce noticeable results. Often, two to three treatment sessions are recommended. But, some patients may see improved skin quality with the first treatment. Naturally, the skin condition at the starting point is important to consider.
How much does a Morpheus8 treatment cost?
Morpheus8 treatment costs vary depending on who’s performing the procedure, the location, and what they charge per area. In addition, the treatments are often priced as a series based on the site and its size, making some body parts more expensive to treat than others.
How many Morpheus8 treatment sessions will I need?
On average, most patients require three to four sessions about four to six weeks apart. Morpheus8 has serious collagen-stimulating abilities; multiple treatments are necessary to see the full results. Of course, your age, the degree of skin laxity, and how much natural collagen and elastin are in the skin can influence the number of treatment sessions needed.
Is Morpheus8 equivalent to a facelift?
No. Morpheus8 is not the same as a facelift or its results. While a facelift surgically elevates saggy skin and excises loose skin, Morpheus8 uses a combination of energy and mechanical microneedling to improve the skin’s texture and give it some lift. As a result, the degree of lifting seen with Morpheus8 is different from what a facelift provides.
The difference in price between a facelift and Morpheus8 is also substantial. Facial rejuvenation surgery can fetch well into the tens of thousands for a single procedure; Morpheus8 costs a fraction of that. So if you’re considering a facelift but are not quite there yet, for whatever reason, Morpheus8 is a great alternative as long as you know the pros and cons of each and their unique differences and nuances.
What does Morpheus8 cost near me?
