People who worry about signs of facial aging like wrinkles and sagging skin and stubborn body fat no longer have to go under the knife to address them. MORPHEUS8 in NYC is an advanced procedure that can resolve these concerns without surgery. A stand-alone platform delivering Full Body Fractional Remodeling, MORPHEUS8 uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten and smooth wrinkles on the face and body. However, when it comes to smaller areas such as the face, experts recommend microneedling. What exactly is the difference between MORPHEUS8 and Microneedling?



Body remodeling continues to be among the most sought after aesthetic procedures. MORPHEUS8 is an ideal option if you want to achieve your goals without surgical intervention or downtime. The MORPHEUS8 platform takes fractional radiofrequency to depths beyond anything else available in the market and penetrates subdermal tissue up to 8mm (7mm + 1mm thermal profile). This minimally invasive Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD) is designed specifically for dermal treatment and epidermal resurfacing. Other benefits of MORPHEUS8 include:

  • Deep and safe fractional technology, penetrating 0.5mm – 7.0mm
    • Plus additional heat profile of 1.0mm
  • Triple action for deep skin treatment:
    • fat coagulation
    • connective tissue contraction
    • sub-necrotic bulk heating
  • Dual technology handpieces delivering:
    • tissue ablation to promote skin renewal
    • collagen remodeling
    • subdermal adipose tissue remodeling
  • Safe on skin types I – IV with little risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH)
  • Variety of disposable tips enable targeted treatment of specific facial and body areas

In MORPHEUS8 treatment, energy is applied between needle and external electrode placed on the skin surface. It treats epidermis, dermis and sub-cutaneous adipose with triple action – ablation, fat coagulation and volumetric bulk heating.


Microneedling is ideal for treating small areas or volumes. One the most popular, cost-effective treatments on the market, micro needling is a great option for patients who want to improve the appearance of facial wrinkles, acne scarring, and improve their overall radiance, but are not interested in fillers or Botox. It uses small needles to deliver RF energy and stimulate the production of collagen and tissue, resulting in firmer, smoother skin. Heat is delivered between the needles in microneedling. When used on the face, this revolutionary procedure provides the benefits of a facelift – without the incisions.

  • Bipolar RF Energy is applied between needles and external electrode
  • Energy is applied between needles
  • Lower density of the needles reduces mechanical damage and allows more thermal effect
  • Higher RF energy delivery results in micro injuries to stimulate collagen with less thermal damage
  • Higher penetration depth
  • Lower penetration depth
  • Strong bulk heating
  • No bulk heating
  • 5 times higher energy/needle
  • Low energy/needle
  • Single treatment provides good results
  • Multiple treatments required for good results
  • Optimized for
    • Body treatment
    • Facial treatment
    • Periorbital treatment
    • Skin resurfacing
  • Designed for facial treatment
  • Adjustable Multi-pulse Modes(BURST)
  • Single pulse mode
  • By penetrating the subdermal tissue, MORPHEUS8 delivers exceptional tissue remodeling outcomes. With deep fractional technology and matrix of 24 thin gold-coated micro pins, MORPHEUS8 comes with four fractional tips – disposable tips- with different microneedle configurations to deliver RF energy to multiple treatment depths (0.5mm-7mm). This micro needling treatment effectively tightens and smooth out wrinkles on the facial areas – such as cheeks, nasolabial folds, neck, and jowls – and body, with little to no thermal damage to epidermis. Moreover, with its advanced lattice design, the device creates a uniform effect and provides a remarkable improvement in skin quality, tone, texture, and tightness by stimulating collagen production.
