Morpheus8 at the Rae Clinic
The Morpheus8 at our London clinic is used as a noninvasive procedure aimed at improving the tone and texture of the skin, further achieving a more youthful and radiant appearance. It is also used to tighten and reshape facial contours in the face, neck and body, quickly becoming one of our most sought after skin sculpting treatments at our London Clinic.
Morpheus8 is an advanced fractional radio-frequency (RF) treatment which delivers controlled-depth heating through an array of micro-needles. The Morpheus8 technology allows our doctors to safely deliver RF heat energy in different depths of the skin to create controlled trauma in the skin or fat layers, in order to promote collagen and elastin, thus, significantly improve the skin on the face and body.
The Rae Clinic’s Clinical Director, Prof. Ali Ghanem, is a key opinion leader for the Morpheus8 technology, teaching the Morpheus8 advanced cosmetic and aesthetic medicine techniques to other doctors in the field.

What is Morpheus8?
The aim of the Morpheus8 treatment is to deliver controlled RF heat at varying depths in the skin layers. It channels micro-injuries in the skin layers, consequently helping the body to stimulate a natural healing response, resulting in collagen production and improved skin texture. Due to its controlled heating and sporadic delivery, Morpheus8 is able to target many indications without damaging the surface of the skin.
The Morpheus8 technology allows different needle depths to be applied in different areas of the body. This customization enables us to improve fine lines and wrinkles as well as laxity and stubborn fat pockets.
For example, the face is treated using a Morpheus8 maximum needle depth of 3mm to target small accumulations of fat such as those found in the chin and jawline.
In the same vein, since the skin of the forehead and around the eyes is very thin, it is treated with a maximum depth of 1 or 2 mm needle. Finally, the Morpheus8 maximum depth of 4mm is used in order to reach deeper into the tissue for fat reduction and body sculpting.
Parts of the Body
The Morpheus8 treatment at our London Clinic can be used on almost all areas of the body. Our patients commonly use Morpheus8 to improve skin texture and laxity on the face as well as to treat body and facial scarring. Morpheus8 is also extensively used for body sculpting and fat remodelling, as well as reducing and improving stretch marks.

How Long Does Morpheus8 Last?
Morpheus8 results are long-lasting, usually requiring maintenance only after 3-5 years. They are not, however, permanent. It is important to remember that the ageing process in our bodies, and our skin, is continuance. Lifestyle including diet, exercise levels, sun exposure, alcohol and smoking habits, all impact our continued ageing process. In order to contribute to the long-lasting results of your treatment, and your general well-being, we encourage our patients to continually maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Morpheus8 Recovery Time
Downtime varies and depends on the depth of treatment performed. For more superficial skin treatments, you can expect little to no downtime around 24-48 hours, five days for deeper facial treatments and up to one week for body treatments.
Expect your skin to feel tight immediately after treatment, with redness, swelling, possible minor bruising and tenderness lasting for a short while and up to two or three days.
You will notice small, dot-like marks on the skin where the micro-needles have penetrated the surface. These will shrink and heal after one to three days.
You are advised not to scratch or scrub the area of the skin treated as this can induce infection, scarring or pigmentation changes. Aftercare advice will be provided, however you should expect to avoid wearing makeup up to 2-3 days after your Morpheus8 treatment.
Face and neck treatments using Morpheus8 last between 30 and 45 minutes, with body treatments lasting approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour.
As the Morpheus8 treatment is safe and effective for most skin types and tones, it is a great solution for any patient that prefers to contour and rejuvenate his or her skin texture and contouring without undergoing surgery. Depending on individual cosmetic aims and concerns, the Rae Clinic doctors will determine whether Morpheus8 is the best solution for your desired results.
If you are pregnant or currently breastfeeding you will not be suitable for Morpheus8 treatment and will need to await the period of weaning your child, before we can embark on a treatment plan.
Two to three treatment Morpheus8 sessions are required, on average, for significant improvement in the skin and face, while the body requires three to four treatments on average.
The Morpheus8 treatment is commonly combined with other advanced technology treatments we offer at the Rae Clinic, FaceTite and BodyTite for instance. It is also safe to use in combination with a variety of other invasive and noninvasive procedures according to individual goals and desired results that you will discuss with our doctors during your consultation.
Although you can expect some immediate tightening as a result of the tissue coagulation caused by the delivery of radio-frequency energy, this is by no means the full extent of your result.
Most importantly, results are not immediate as this treatment is aimed at diminishing fat cells and stimulating the repair of skin cells and collagen production and elastin over time. Accordingly, improvements in skin texture, skin tightness and fat remodelling will continue in the weeks and months after treatment.
In addition, you can expect to see further changes and improvements after four to six weeks, with continued improvements after each Morpheus8 treatment session.
