InMode, a leading supplier of innovative, energy-based, minimally and non-invasive aesthetic solutions, has introduced a cutting-edge device to its expanding product portfolio – Morpheus8.  Morpheus8, is a unique, sub-dermal, adipose remodelling, radio-frequency (RF) device, which fractionally remodels and contours the face and body.  The device delivers immediate results for patients, as well as more uniform, symmetrical, long-lasting and consistent outcomes by treating the subcutaneous fatty layers as well as the superficial layers of the skin.

Morpheus8’s stand-out innovation comes from the use of fractionated RF energy into sub-dermal tissue. Typically, similar bipolar RF technologies on the market work exclusively in the superficial layers of the skin and patients may opt for surgery to reach the sub-dermal tissue for moderate and severe cases of laxity and wrinkles. However, Morpheus8 safely by passing the epidermis, delivering bi-polar RF energy to the sub-dermal & deeper sub cutaneous layers; providing more effective and longer-lasting results.

Dr Ash Dutta, Cosmetic Surgeon comments:

“I have been using Morpheus8 for the face and body and my patients are delighted with the results. One of the main advantages is that it can be combined with other surgical or non-surgical treatments for eg. fillers.  It is gaining popularity with those patients who would like minimal downtime and subtle results”.

With programmable penetration, depth and energy delivery, Morpheus8 is the ideal device for the treatment of fine lines & wrinkles, acne scars and general skin tone. 24 silicone-coated pins penetrate into the sub-dermal tissue, tightening fat and contracting connective tissue.  Fractionated RF energy is scientifically proven to reduce wrinkles whilst rebuilding collagen and fat. It is minimally invasive with minimal patient downtime.

Questions on safety

While Morpheus8 can deliver its energy at a depth of, 200, 300 & 400 microns with an extremely uniform effect, there is little to no thermal damage to the skin’s surface. It’s bipolar technology is arguable safer than mono-polar, due to the way the energy passes between the poles. Furthermore, the combination of its long needles and silicone-insulated shafts make it a safe device to use on all skin types with little risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), which is common with other resurfacing methods.

Dr Ali Ghanem comments:

“What I like about it the most, is the built-in integrated safeguards of real time measurements of skin and fat temperature and audible feedback leading to automatic power cut-off if the tissue receives too much energy during the treatment. This greatly ensures patient safety”.

Morpheus8 can be used on all areas that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal; the most commonly treated areas include the lower face and neck. The combination of Morpheus 8 and Facetite, (Facetite being a minimally-invasive face and neck contouring device, that has been approved by the US FDA for its safety and efficacy profile), addresses skin laxity through differential tissue and three-dimensional remodelling that is the next best thing to a formal facelift.
