resurfacing tip


The Resurfacing treatment uses the same technology as the the Morpheus8 treatment, however, instead of needles penetrating the skin, it applies very tiny (0.5mm) blunt tips to the skin which also emit radio frequency. The RF energy stimulates collagen reproduction within the surface of the skin.

Resurfacing is an excellent option for those looking to address fine-lines, wrinkles, pore size, and overall glow. 

Downtime: 24 hours or less 


morpheus8 tip pins out


The Morpheus8 treatment uses a specialty tip with needles that can reach up to 5mm into the skin. The goal is to exceed the dermis and treat the layers beneath. Radio frequency is conducted through the needles applying the energy to the dermis and fat layers belows. This causes a shrinkwrap effect to occur among the fat cells and stimulates the production of collagen throughout the numerous layers, in turn, remodelling the skin structure and revealing glowing, healthy skin. 

Due to it’s ability to reach the under layers of the skin, the Morpheus8 treatment is ideal for individuals looking to address sagging skin, wrinkles, skin tautness, evenness, and overall youthful appearance. 

Downtime: 48-72 hours
