Several factors contribute to skin ageing, including not using SPF in the sun, sleeping in make-up, smoking, and drinking alcohol. But of course, one of the most significant ageing factors is something we can’t control: our genes.

That doesn’t mean we can’t try different preventative methods and techniques to reduce the look of ageing because, let’s face it, none of us wants to. Luckily, there are non-invasive techniques and treatments that can help turn back the clock a little. This is where Morpheus8 comes in.

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a new, cutting-edge skin rejuvenation treatment that can help improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars and other skin concerns. The treatment uses micro-needling combined with radiofrequency energy to deliver heat deep into the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting the regeneration of new skin cells to help redefine the contours of your face, neck, and body.

Not only does this result in smoother, more youthful-looking skin, but it can also help to improve skin tone and texture. Morpheus8 treatments are suitable for all skin types and ethnicities and can be tailored to individual needs.

How Does Morpheus8 Work?

The Morpheus8 treatment uses a combination of clinically proven treatments: skin needling and radio frequency (RF) energy, to synergistically stimulate collagen production and elastin in the skin and its deeper layers without damaging the surface. This results in new collagen growth, plumping up the skin and giving it a more youthful appearance. It also helps to improve skin tone and texture.


The device features a specialist applicator that contains 24 micro-needles. Other available treatments use both micro-needling and RF, but Morpheus8 is the first treatment to allow a variable depth (between 0.5mm and 7mm) to penetrate the subcutaneous layer of skin for maximum tightening and remodelling of the collagen. There are currently no other treatments available that can target the subcutaneous layer of skin.

Morpheus8 is suitable for all skin types and can be used on the face, neck, chest, hands, and body and is effective at treating:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Facial contours, lifting and tightening
  • Discolouration, acne scarring and other skin irregularities
  • Skin tone for a more radiant and youthful appearance
  • Cellulite and body skin laxity

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive treatment that has minimal downtime, meaning you can return to your normal activities within 1-2 days after the procedure. The treatment is normally carried out in 3-6 sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, but this will depend on your skin type and other factors that will be considered during your consultation.

Is Morpheus8 Safe?

Morpheus8 is an FDA-cleared, clinically proven, safe, and effective treatment. At Skin Excellence Clinics, we combine Morpheus8 with our FaceTite procedure to achieve outstanding results, lasting an excess of five years, making the treatment the best alternative to facelift surgery.

We will carry out a full consultation before your Morpheus8 treatment, so we can identify your skin type, concerns, and goals. Our fully trained professionals will then tailor the treatment to your individual needs, ensuring you get the best possible results.

Is Morpheus8 Painful?

Many clinics only use topical anaesthetic for Morpehus8 treatments, which led to negative feedback and reviews from patients that state the treatment is too painful. However, this is not the case. At Skin Excellence Clinics, we have pioneered ways to ensure Morpheus8 treatments aren’t painful, using a combination of topical anaesthetic and nerve block injections to minimise the pain to next to nothing.

Without the appropriate anaesthetic, Morpheus8 treatments are quite painful to tolerate but rest assured if you choose our clinic, the treatment will not cause you any pain. Our clinical director, Dr Ian Strawford, is a highly regarded leader in the industry and a full member of the British College of Aesthetic Medicine and The Association of Surgeons and Primary Care. Dr Strawford was the first doctor in the south of the UK to offer Morpheus8 treatments and delivers the safest and most effective results.

  • Smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines
  • Improving the appearance of acne scars
  • Evening out skin tone
  • Improving skin texture
  • Stimulating collagen production
