Morpheus8 London UK
Experience the ultimate in skin rejuvenation with Morpheus8, the revolutionary technology that combines micro-needling and radiofrequency for unparalleled anti-ageing results
With advancing years, the skin gradually loses its firmness and elasticity. Collagen and elastin content diminish and is often accompanied by volume loss caused by loss of underlying fat. The result is often skin that is sagging, less firm and prone to the premature development of lines, wrinkles and skin folds. The lines and wrinkles which develop can be worsened by fluctuations in weight, tobacco smoking, chronic sun exposure and genetics. Once advanced skin changes have developed, even premium skin creams and serums are unable to restore a healthy and youthful appearance. Although a surgical facelift is an excellent procedure for addressing the ageing face, not all patients are willing to accept an invasive procedure that carries potential risks and a period of downtime. Centre for Surgery in London are pleased to offer Morpheus8 fractional radiofrequency for restoration of a youthful and refreshed appearance without the incisions, scars, risks or downtime of traditional excisional surgery.
Morpheus8 is fully FDA-approved for the smoothening of fine lines and wrinkles in the face, neck and décolletage. The treatment involves the delivery of precise radio frequency energy deep into the dermal layer of the skin. The transmitted radiofrequency energy induces stimulation of dormant fibroblasts leading to new collagen and elastin production, which are the fundamental building blocks of smoother and firmer skin. Treatment results continue to improve over time as the collagen is remodelled in the dermal layer and can lead to both a lifting and plumping effect. The newly remodelled skin is both firmer and tighter and can be successfully paired with FaceTite or BodyTite for more significant degrees of skin laxity in patients not keen on excisional surgery. For patients who have had previously had laser skin tightening and are keen to achieve more skin tightening before considering a surgical option, fractional RF microneedling is an ideal option.
Expected Results after Morpheus8
- Reduction of deeper peri-oral lines around the mouth
- Smoothening of superficial and deep lines around the eyes
- Reduction of jawline laxity and sagging leading to a tighter, more defined jawline
- Tightening of skin beneath the chin which leads to a reduction in the appearance of a double chin when combined with submental liposuction
- Tightening tissue in the neck and décolletage area
What is Morpheus8
Morpheus8 is a cutting-edge aesthetic treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to rejuvenate and improve the skin’s appearance. This non-surgical procedure is designed to target the deeper layers of the skin, promoting collagen production and remodeling tissue for a firmer, smoother, and more youthful complexion.
Here’s how Morpheus8 works:
- Microneedling: Morpheus8 uses an array of small needles that penetrate the skin to create controlled micro-injuries. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, which includes the production of collagen, an essential protein for skin elasticity and firmness.
- Radiofrequency Energy: While the needles are in the skin, Morpheus8 delivers radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers. This energy heats the underlying tissues, further stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin.
The combined effect of microneedling and radiofrequency energy makes Morpheus8 particularly effective for addressing a range of skin concerns, including:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Skin laxity or sagging
- Acne and acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Uneven skin texture
- Enlarged pores
The procedure is minimally invasive and usually well-tolerated with the application of a topical anaesthetic. There is typically some redness and swelling post-procedure, but most patients can return to their regular activities within a few days.
Morpheus8 is versatile and can be used on various parts of the body, including the face, neck, arms, and abdomen. It is also safe for all skin types and tones, making it a popular choice for those seeking a non-surgical option for skin rejuvenation.

Benefits of Morpheus8
Morpheus8 offers an array of benefits for individuals seeking to improve the texture, tone, and overall appearance of their skin. Some of the key benefits include:
- Minimally Invasive: Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive procedure, which means that it involves little to no cuts or incisions. This reduces the risk of infection and results in a shorter recovery period compared to more invasive surgical procedures.
- Collagen Production: By combining microneedling with radiofrequency energy, Morpheus8 stimulates the production of collagen, a vital protein that maintains the skin’s elasticity and firmness. Increased collagen helps in reducing wrinkles and sagging.
- Skin Tightening: The radiofrequency energy delivered to the deeper layers of the skin leads to the contraction of the tissues, resulting in noticeable skin tightening, which is beneficial for individuals with loose or sagging skin.
- Improved Skin Texture and Tone: Morpheus8 effectively improves skin texture and tone by addressing issues like enlarged pores, scars, and uneven pigmentation.
- Reduction of Scars and Stretch Marks: It’s effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks.
- Contour Refinement: Besides improving skin texture, Morpheus8 also helps in refining and sculpting the contours of the face and body, giving a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
- Customisable Depth: Morpheus8 allows for customisation in terms of the depth of needle penetration and energy levels. This makes it possible to tailor the treatment to address specific concerns and cater to different skin types.
- Suitable for All Skin Types: Morpheus8 is safe and effective for all skin types and tones, including darker skin tones, which are sometimes at risk of hyperpigmentation from other laser treatments.
- Reduced Downtime: Compared to more invasive procedures, the downtime for Morpheus8 is relatively short. While there might be some redness and swelling, most individuals can return to their normal activities within a couple of days.
- Long-lasting Results: The results of Morpheus8 are not only noticeable but are also long-lasting. As the treatment stimulates natural collagen production, the effects continue to improve over several months.
- Versatility: Morpheus8 can be used on various parts of the body, not just the face. It’s effective for treating areas like the neck, abdomen, arms, and legs.
- Combination with Other Treatments: Morpheus8 can be combined with other aesthetic treatments for enhanced results.
Ideal candidates for Morpheus8
Morpheus8 is a suitable treatment for those who are wishing to improve the appearance of:
- Mild sagging in the face and neck
- Chronic sun damage
- Acne scars
- Perioral fine lines
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Scars and stretch marks
You will need to be at least 18 years old to undergo this treatment. This treatment is suitable for all skin types including darker skin types. You will need to have realistic expectations about what the procedure can achieve as it does not give surgical results but can significantly improve ageing changes.
Who is not suitable for Morpheus8?
You will not be a suitable candidate if you are currently pregnant, breastfeeding or have an active skin infection. Those who have severe wrinkles or skin laxity may not be suitable. Prior to undergoing this treatment, you will need to have a consultation with one of our surgeons. They will be able to assess your skin and ensure you are a suitable candidate for this procedure. Some people may need to combine treatments, or it may be better to undergo more effective but invasive procedures such as a surgical facelift.
Morpheus8 RF microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure. In most cases, a topical anaesthetic will be applied to the skin prior to the procedure to minimise any discomfort associated with treatment. For larger areas or for treatment performed at higher energy settings, your practitioner may perform a local anaesthetic block for enhanced comfort. Treatment time can vary depending on the areas treated. A full face and neck treatment takes about 2 hours to complete. Morpheus8 works by utilising microneedles which are combined with radiofrequency energy. The microneedles are then used on the target area, penetrating up to 4mm. The radiofrequency is then applied at this level. The handheld device will be gently passed over the skin until the treatment is complete. This treatment will not only target the fat beneath the skin but will also act on the collagen and elastin in the skin for enhanced effect. This will cause the skin to become tighter, more vibrant and more youthful.
As this is a non-surgical procedure, you will experience minimal downtime. Following the treatment, it is usual to experience redness, swelling and shiny skin for up to five days. You may also notice that your skin will peel during this period. During the first few days following the procedure, you will need to ensure you take care of your skin. You will need to avoid excess sun exposure and ensure you apply high-SPF sunscreen. You should also ensure your skin stays moisturised. Avoid applying makeup until the following day. You will not need to take any time off work – most people will return to work the day after they have treatment. You will be able to notice results straight after the procedure. However, with time the results will continue to improve, and you will notice the best results after two to three weeks.

What is Morpheus8?Morpheus8 is a non-surgical minimally invasive procedure which uses a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency to target the deeper dermis and improve the appearance of the skin and skin quality.
Morpheus8 is a handheld device which involves the use of insulated micro needles with uncoated tips which emit radiofrequency energy. The device is passed sequentially over the skin, and the microneedles will penetrate the skin at a depth up to 4mm. Once applied, radiofrequency energy will be emitted.
The combination of these treatments will not only target the deeper skin layers for enhanced dermal remodelling, the procedure can also target the superficial fat layer for precise fat contouring.
Is Morpheus8 the right choice for you?Morpheus8 is a versatile treatment that can be beneficial for an extensive range of individuals. It attracts younger individuals in their 20s and 30s who are seeking a polished, airbrushed effect for their complexion. Additionally, it's an excellent choice for those aiming to address acne, scarring, skin laxity, wrinkles, and to bestow a sculpted appearance to the skin. Moreover, Morpheus8 is equally efficacious and safe for all skin types and shades.
When you book a consultation at our Baker Street clinic, we can engage in a comprehensive discussion to determine if this treatment aligns with your goals. Furthermore, we can devise a bespoke treatment plan that is tailored to deliver optimum results for your specific needs.
What is the technology behind Morpheus8?Morpheus8 is a fractional radio-frequency needling device using specially coated pins or microneedles. The micro pins exert their effect at the dermal and subcutaneous layer leading to precise thermal tissue coagulation and the stimulation of the production of new collagen and elastin by dormant fibroblasts.
What are the advantages of Morpheus8 treatment?Morpheus8 works great for 3 types of concerns:
1 - the younger patient who wants soft tissue tightening without traditional operations such as a facelift and without the possible scars, risks or downtime.
2 - patients with soft tissue laxity who are not severe enough to justify the time, expense and risk of a more invasive procedure such as facelift and have found high intensity ultrasound or HIFU and cryolipolysis to be ineffective
3 - those with recurrent soft tissue laxity who have already undergone a traditional surgical procedure such as a facelift
Morpheus8 is frequently combined with bipolar RF for optimal skin tightening. Bipolar RF includes FaceTite, AccuTite, BodyTite and CelluTite.
How does Morpheus8 stimulate the production of collagen and elastin?Collagen and elastin are substances found naturally in the body. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein molecule that helps to give the skin a youthful and firm appearance. As people age, the production of new collagen slowly diminishes leading to a resultant loss of skin firmness. This resulting skin laxity leads to sagging skin. The Morpheus8 device used at Centre for Surgery acts as a potent stimulator of collagen and elastin production through a focused heating effect caused by radio frequency energy at the pin tips to the sagging tissues. This leads to a significant degree of tightening without any incisions or scars of traditional surgery.
Is Morpheus8 a laser procedure?No. Morpheus8 is not a laser procedure. Ablative lasers such as erbium laser or CO2 laser act on the most superficial layers of the skin for common skin concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles or hyperpigmentation. Morpheus8 is similar to fractional lasers is that the pins are applied as a grid similar to the fractional laser to minimise downtime. Unlike lasers, Morpheus8 acts on the deeper skin layers to lift and remodel the facial skin or any other body area and does not target the epidermis like lasers do. Since lasers and Morpheus8 exert their effects at different depths, they can be used in a complementary manner for a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
Our practitioners commonly combine Morpheus8 and erbium laser for multilayer skin rejuvenation for effects unachievable when either device is used alone.
This technique is also known as hybrid laser resurfacing.
Is Morpheus8 a surgical procedure?Morpheus8 is not a surgical procedure as it does not involve any incisions and can be safely performed in the clinic setting using local anaesthetic as an outpatient procedure. Morpheus8 can be combined with FaceTite or BodyTite as part of a minimally invasive procedure under a local anaesthetic as an outpatient.
Can Morpheus8 achieve results similar to a facelift?Morpheus8 is often known as a non-surgical facelift. It is probably more accurate to think of Morpheus8 as a skin tightening device which works great for mild to moderate levels of skin laxity. Many patients will not be ready for a facelift and in these cases, Morpheus8 is ideal as a treatment gap treatment. Morpheus8 can also be used for those who have had surgery and wish to maintain their results.
Who is advised against undergoing Morpheus8?Morpheus8 is not recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. It's also unsuitable for individuals with an infection in the vicinity of the treatment area. Additionally, if you have a tendency to bleed excessively or suffer from any bleeding disorders, or if you have any autoimmune conditions that might impair the healing process, Morpheus8 is not advisable.
What happens during the Morpheus8 treatment?After you have a face to face consultation with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon, you will attend for your procedure for Morpheus8 face tightening treatment. The first step is to throughly clean the area followed by the application of local anaesthetic cream which is left for a period of 45-60 minutes to take effect. For Morpheus8 used at higher energy settings it may be better to have local anaesthetic injections to numb the area more effectively. During Morpheus8 treatment, the device is applied perpendicular to the skin and activated leading to deposition of radiofrequency energy via the fractional micro pins to kick start the collagen production process. A full face and neck treatment usually takes around 60 to 90 minutes.
When should I anticipate seeing the results?You can expect to observe an enhancement in the overall texture and quality of your skin within several days post-treatment. Notably, the skin tightening effects become more apparent after roughly three weeks. Morpheus8 generally delivers the most favourable results after undergoing a set of three treatments. Following the completion of the series, you can expect your results to progressively improve over the subsequent months.
What can I expect after the Morpheus8 procedure?Following a Morpheus8 treatment at Centre for Surgery, the skin may appear flushed at first but the redness will start to settle down after a few hours. Other common side effects of RF microneedling treatment include swelling, and skin sensitivity when the skin is touched. These side effects are temporary in nature. Less commonly reported side effects after Morpheus8 treatment including temporary patches of numbness on parts of the skin and mild bruising. Patients can return to normal activities within 24 hours and should probably avoid booking any important engagements the day after treatment as in some cases, your doctor may prescribe strong painkillers for the first couple of days.
Where on the face and body can I have Morpheus8?While Morpheus8 is most commonly applied to the face, it can also be used on the arms, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, knees and underarms.
Am I a suitable candidate for Morpheus8 treatment?For those patients whose skin is affected by the passage of time and gravity, then you may be a good candidate for Morpheus8. Patients with sagging neck skin and jowl descent can benefit from Morpheus8 treatment.
Morpheus8 is well known for its skin tightening effects and for patients who want to take a proactive approach in preventing early onset signs of aging. Patients who have already had facial rejuvenation surgery can also benefit from having Morpheus8 to maintain the results of their surgical procedure.
You can have Morpheus8 treatment if you want to improve the appearance of:
Mild sagging in the face and neck
Lines and creases
For patients with severe degrees of skin laxity may derive more benefit from a surgical procedure such as a facelift.
It will be recommended that you wait before having this procedure if you are currently pregnant, breastfeeding or have a skin infection.
Is Morpheus8 suitable for my skin type?Morpheus8 is suitable for all skin types including darker Fitzpatrick skin types 5 and 6.
How long does the Morpheus8 treatment take?Treatment will vary depending on where it takes place. Treatment can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours.
Is the Morpheus8 treatment painful?Morpheus8 is performed in in the clinic in most cases. In most cases, the topical application of local anaesthetic cream is sufficient to provide effective pain relief even with the deeper penetration of the micro needles. The needles are very sharp to facilitate smooth access through the skin. During the initial stage of the treatment, you may experience a mild prickling sensation followed by a warm sensation as energy is emitted from the needle tips. For Morpheus8 performed at higher energy settings, your doctor may use the injection of local anaesthetic and nerve blocks for more effective pain relief. Morpheus8 is designed to provide a controlled deliver of RF energy for uniformly delivered treatment.
How soon will I see results from Morpheus8 treatment?After approximately 4 weeks, you may begin to notice a substantial improvement in your skin tone and texture. After 3 months, your soft tissue laxity should also start to have improved with an improvement in overall skin elasticity. The optimum results from Morpheus8 treatment will be evident by between 6 and 8 months post treatment.
What are the risks of Morpheus8 treatment?Morpheus8 is fully FDA approved which means it has passed rigourous tests of both safety and effectiveness. The procedure has been over 100,000 times globally across the world. Radiofrequency energy used in the Morpheus8 device is a tried and tested technology and has been used widely in medicine for over 60 years. The side effects of Morpheus treatment include redness, bruising, swelling and temporary skin tenderness. These side effects are short lived and settle after 24 hours or so.
Will it be necessary for me to undergo more than a single treatment?Individual responses to Morpheus8 can vary, but it is commonplace for us to suggest a series of 3 treatments, with each session spaced 4-6 weeks apart, in order to attain the best possible outcomes. Following this series, maintenance treatments on an annual basis are recommended to sustain the results achieved.
Will I need multiple Morpheus8 treatments?This will depend on the desired results you are wishing to achieve. Some people will be able to achieve the best results after one session, however, others will require multiple treatments over the next few weeks.
Is there a recovery period following Morpheus8?Indeed, Morpheus8 treatment entails a brief period of social downtime. Post-treatment, you might notice redness, swelling, and instances of bruising. Additionally, there may be minor bleeding shortly after the procedure due to the micro-abrasions created, and the emergence of small, red, raised bumps on the skin. However, these symptoms typically subside within a span of 1-3 days. Whilst the downtime associated with Morpheus8 is relatively minimal, it is advisable to refrain from scheduling any significant events for at least three days after undergoing the treatment. Furthermore, it’s imperative to exercise caution by avoiding direct sunlight, and it’s highly recommended to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30. During your consultation, we will also guide you through an appropriate skincare regimen designed to expedite the healing process and enhance the efficacy of the treatment.
What will the recovery period be like after Morpheus8?After the procedure, you will be able to resume your usual daily routine straight away. However, most people will prefer to take the rest of the day off work. You can expect to experience some redness and swelling for up to five days. Your skin may also flake during this period. You will need to make sure to avoid excessive sun exposure and apply high SPF sunscreen. Make sure to keep your skin moisturised. You will have to avoid wearing makeup until the next day. However, if you combined Morpheus8 with procedures such as FaceTite, you may have to wait up to one week before applying makeup.
How safe and effective is Morpheus8?The safety and effectiveness of Morpheus8 and RF microneedling has been validated through a number of high level clinical research papers and many hundreds of thousands of procedures performed across the world. The procedure has received full European CE mark approval for non-surgical tightening and lifting of the neck, lower face and upper face.
Can Morpheus8 be combined with any other procedures?Morpheus8 is commonly combined with other rejuvenation procedures such as FaceTite and BodyTite.
During your consultation, your surgeon will be able to determine whether or not you should combine Morpheus8 with other procedures.
How much does Morpheus8 cost?Morpheus8 prices in London differ based on the area being treated and will be confirmed following a full clinical assessment by one of our expert practitioners.
Patients who would prefer a more affordable microneedling option can still obtain great results from SkinPen microneedling. Please see our microneedling page for more information.
Why does Centre for Surgery use Morpheus8 for skin tightening?Morpheus8 is one of the most effective skin tightening treatments available in the UK and is fully FDA approved. Unlike laser treatments such as CO2 laser or Erbium laser which always have some effect on the epidermal layer, the radiofrequency energy of Morpheus8 is delivered beneath the epidermal skin layer deep in the dermis and the subcutaneous layer. No laser treatment can penetrate as deep as Morpheus8 and can only penetrate as far as the superficial dermis. Morpheus8 directly leads to the stimulation of collagen and elastin production in the deep skin layers and this contributes to a significant improvement in skin tightening leading to a lifting effect.
What To Expect
We always recommend a face to face consultation with one of our expert aesthetic practitioners as a first step in your journey towards achieving a more revitalised appearance When you meet with one of our practitioners, they will take time to listen carefully to what you hope to achieve and give you an expert opinion on what can and cannot be achieved with Morpheus8 after performing a thorough physical examination. Your practitioner may use computerised digital imaging to map the structure of the face region in detail to give you an idea of how you could look like after your procedure.
Your practitioner will also take a number of measurements as part of a detailed facial analysis. Finally high resolution photographs are taken in a number of views. Your surgeon will also discuss with you the potential risks and complications of radio frequency microneedling and what to expect in the period after your procedure. It is important to know what medicines you taking as some medicines can interfere with blood clotting and may need to be stopped. Any history of medical conditions or previous surgery will also be recorded and all the compiled information is used to make a decision on your medical fitness for the Morpheus8 procedure. After a recommended two week "cool off" period and provided you are appropriate for the procedure, you can then make an informed decision on whether you would like to proceed with the Morpheus8 procedure. If you are unsure on any aspect of the procedure and what it entails then we would invite you to return for as many follow-up consultations with your practitioner as you like to make sure that Morpheus8 is right for you. The consultation lasts about 45 minutes on average. It may take longer if your procedure is going to be more complex or combined with other treatments. We would actively recommend coming in for a follow-up consultation to ensure all your questions are answered.
