Morpheus8 Treatment in Vancouver

        Stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate your skin with a Morpheus8 treatment at Skin matters in Vancouver.

        What Is Morpheus8?

        Morpheus8 is a treatment that uses silicone-coated needles that go deeply beneath the skin to deliver pulses of radiofrequency energy to tighten loose tissue, reduce stubborn fat pockets, and increase collagen production to diminish signs of aging.

        At Skin Matters in Vancouver, you can easily combine Morpheus8 with other treatments, including a brow lift or body contouring procedure.

        How does Morpheus8 Work?

        Morpheus8 works by needles being inserted into different layers of the skin to pulse radiofrequency energy, which stimulates collagen production in the underlying layers of the dermis and tissue.

        Morpheus8 can target all areas of the face and body to reduce signs of sagging, volume loss, textured skin, and stubborn pockets of fat.

        Which Areas Can Be Treated with Morpheus8?

        Morpheus8 offers skin tightening and improved texture across the face and body, including:

        • The face and neck.

        • The decolletage.

        • The waist, and hips.

        • The arms and back.

        • The abdomen. 

        • The buttocks, thighs, and knees.

        How Much Does Morpheus8 Cost?

        The cost of a Morpheus8 treatment depends upon many variables, including the number of treatments required, which areas are being treated, and if you are considering pairing it with other procedures to optimize your results. 


        How Long Does It Take to Recover from Morpheus8?

        After your Morpheus8 treatment, you will recover for 5-7 days while some minor swelling and redness resolve, but you can return to work the same day as your treatment. Unlike traditional needle-based procedures, you do not have to worry about scabbing as a healing effect of your Morpheus8 treatment.

        How Long Do Morpheus8 Results Last?

        Your results will last one year, and you can return for follow-up sessions to maintain your youthful results.

        Why Choose Skin Matters for a Morpheus8?

        Skin Matters has one of the most experienced teams in Vancouver and have been performing treatments for over a decade. The Skin Matters team is able to evaluate and understand your skin and your desired results in order to provide you with the most effective Morpheus8 treatment experience.

        How Is a Morpheus8 Treatment Performed at Skin Matters?

        The Morpheus8 handpiece will be applied to the desired treatment area(s) and delivers 24 silicone-coated, probe-like needles beneath the skin. A pulse of radiofrequency energy is delivered into the deep layers of skin and tissue, tightening the exterior appearance and promoting collagen production. 

        This treatment can reduce the look of wrinkles, scars, texture, pores, and stretch marks in the treatment area, while the silicone coating on the needles protects the skin from thermal injury. The energy will then flow up the needle(s) to the electrode on the skin surrounding the needles, directly heating the dermis to stimulate collagen and further tighten the soft tissue.

        Combining Morpheus8 with Other Treatments

        To have your skin look as youthful and rejuvenated as possible, consider dermal fillers to plump up lips that have lost volume with age and any fine lines on your face disrupting your enjoyment of the full Morpheus8 results. Additionally, if you want to boost your skin’s radiance and even your skin tone, follow up your Morpheus8 treatment with LED Light Therapy.
