Am I An Ideal Candidate for Morpheus8?


Are you concerned about mild signs of aging such as sagging skin, scarring, and wrinkles? There is now a minimally-invasive option to address them – Morpheus8 in NYC. InMode’s Morpheus8 is a FDA-approved subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) that fractionally remodels and contours the face and body. The procedure stimulates collagen production and provides a remarkable improvement in skin quality, tone, texture, and tightness – without surgical intervention and long downtime.

Morpheus8 has been ranked second in the top 5 trending cosmetic procedures by RealSelf’s 2021 Aesthetic Trend Report. In addition to subdermal and dermal remodeling of larger body zones – such as arms, abdomen and so on- Morpheus8 can also treat smaller body areas such as the jaw line, jowls and neck. The device is placed on the patient’s skin surface and energy is applied between the needle and external electrode. It penetrates 4000 microns with an additional thermal profile of 1000+ microns, with little to no thermal damage to dermis. Any scabbing, swelling, or redness post-procedure subsides within a few days. The combination of RF energy and microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production, coagulates fat and contracts connective tissue to tighten and rejuvenate the treated area.

Morpheus8 resurfaces the skin, stimulates collagen production, and restructures underlying fat and tissue. The procedure can improve a wide range of concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles, lax skin, uneven skin texture, hyperpigmentation and acne scarring, stretch marks, and fat – anywhere on the body, including the abdomen or buttocks, though it’s most popular for the face, jawline, and neck.

To experience the benefits of Morpheus8, you need to be an ideal candidate for the procedure. Candidates for Morpheus8 treatment usually fall into two categories:

  • Men and women between the ages of 30 and 55 who have visible signs of aging – such as appearance of sagging skin, stretch marks, sun damage, or wrinkles and fine lines – that they would like to improve without surgical interventions
  • Patients who have active acne or acne scars – that do not respond to oral and/or topical medications

Criteria that an ideal candidate must meet include:

  • Be healthy with no serious medical conditions
  • Be a non-smoker
  • Have realistic expectations about the outcome

Morpheus8 can reverse only mild forms of sagging, jowls, and wrinkles that could benefit from increased collagen production and would not work for severe sagging skin or deep wrinkles. Patients with such distinct signs of aging may not benefit from Morpheus8 treatment and instead need surgical treatments for visible reduction of these concerns. Additionally, women who are pregnant and breast feeding may also not qualify for the treatment and are encouraged to undergo Morpheus8 at a later time. Unlike other resurfacing treatments, Morpheus8 is safe for all skin types and tones without the risk of hyperpigmentation.

Expert plastic surgeons determine a patient’s candidacy for Morpheus8 after a thorough review of the patient’s medical history and physical exam. After reviewing the patient’s portfolio, they will create an individualized treatment plan to address their specific concerns.
