Morpheus8 is the hottest new non-surgical cosmetic procedure on today’s market, highly sought after by Hollywood stars. Kim Kardashian called Morpheus 8 a ‘game changer’ for her skin, while Jennifer Aniston, Hailey Bieber, Gwyneth Paltrow and Eva Longoria, preached its benefits as well (check this blog and find out their experience with Morpheus8). In the ever-evolving universe of non-surgical beauty treatments, Morpheus 8 is a name that has been catching everyone’s attention!
Morpheus8 is a cutting-edge, non-invasive treatment to refresh and revitalize your facial and body skin. This innovative treatment combines the power of microneedling and radiofrequency to deliver remarkable results. Morpheus8 works its magic by stimulating collagen production, promoting tighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.
We are a leading Kitchener Waterloo Morpheus8 provider. At Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa, our medical technicians are fully trained and highly experienced to deliver the best possible Morpheus8 results in the K-W area.
Skin Tightening: Morpheus8 stimulates collagen production deep within the skin, resulting in tighter and firmer skin. It is particularly effective in treating sagging or loose skin on the face, neck, and body.
Long-Lasting Results: The collagen stimulation triggered by Morpheus8 can lead to long-lasting results, with improvements continuing to develop over several months following the procedure.
Morpheus8 works through a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy to address various skin concerns and stimulate collagen production. When heated to 41 °C to 43°C, collagen, the principal structural protein in connective tissues, undergoes a controlled breakdown. Over the course of 6 weeks, the collagen that undergoes this breakdown during a Morpheus8 session gradually regenerates, leading to a significant enhancement in skin tightness and overall skin quality.
Morpheus8 is a versatile cosmetic procedure that can be used on the face, neck, and full body to address a wide range of skin concerns.
Due to its exceptional versatility, most people who are in good general health and interested in improving the overall texture and appearance of their skin are good candidates for Morpheus8 treatments. Morpheus8 is not suitable for people who are pregnant or breastfeeding, use a pacemaker, or have an active skin condition such as eczema. People who is taking Isotretinoin (Accutane®) is not a good candidate for Morpheus8 either. You will have to discontinue using of this medication for at least 6 months prior to the treatment.
Morpheus 8 in Waterloo, Kitchener, and Cambridge region usually costs $900-$1,200 per session (for the full face) on average. The total Morpheus8 treatment cost varies depending on the size of the treatment area and number of treatment sessions required to achieve your desired results. At Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa, we offer Morpheus8 treatment packages with multiple sessions at a much lower price (per session).

Morpheus8 treatment typically involves some level of discomfort, which can vary from person to person. Most practitioners apply a topical numbing cream to minimize any pain or discomfort during the procedure. Patients commonly report a sensation of mild tingling, warmth, or slight pressure during treatment.
For optimal results from your Morpheus8 treatment, we suggest complementing it with a superfacial like Hydrafacial®, OxyGeneo™ or JetPeel™ as a preparatory step to prime your skin for this energy-based procedure. More importantly, we highly recommend a PRP or Exosome treatment immediately following the Morpheus8 procedure. This not only enhances the treatment’s effectiveness but also substantially expedites the skin’s healing process and significantly reduces downtime, particularly with an Exosome treatment.
In addition, we recommend the following medical-grade skincare products to efficiently hydrate your skin and protect your skin from the sun after the treatment or facilitate collagen regeneration to preserve or even enhance your Morpheus8 treatment outcomes:
Lastly, collagen peptides such as Bend Beauty® marine collagen powder, may also expedite collagen reproduction after the Morpheus8 treatment and thus improve the results.
Yes. Except for the aforementioned superfacials and PRP/Exosome treatments to complement the procedure, at our clinic, Morpheus8 is often combined with other treatments to offer a comprehensive approach to address multiple concerns and enhance overall results.
Common combinations of Morpheus8 with other treatments include:
For aged skin, Botox can effectively relax muscles to enhance wrinkle reduction, while dermal fillers and Sculptra® can add volume to targeted facial areas. To optimize your results, we suggest scheduling your Morpheus8 treatment first and allowing at least 2-week interval before considering these treatments. If you’ve already undergone these treatments, we recommend waiting for at least 4-6 weeks before proceeding with Morpheus8 for the best outcomes.
For sagging skin, we recommend a combination treatment of Morpheus8 and Ultherapy®, namely, the advanced layered facelift. This treatment can target multiple layers of the facial anatomy and provide possibly the best non-surgical facelift results available today. Morpheus8 and Ultherapy® can be performed on the same day.
For sun-damaged skin with severe hyperpigmentation, we usually recommend IPL or PicoSure® treatment performed 2 weeks prior to every Morpheus8 treatment session.
Yes, Morpheus8 can melt facial fat if that is intended. However, Morpheus8 offers a remarkable level of customization for skin tightening/facelift and fat reduction, and by precisely configuring the treatment depth, it can effectively prevent any unintended facial fat loss, which is a common preference among individuals with thin skin. The system can penetrate to a maximum depth of 4mm, specifically targeting subcutaneous fat cells at this level. For those with younger skin or those who prefer to avoid any risks of facial fat reduction, we recommend limiting the maximum treatment depth to 2-3mm, which is equivalent to the maximum depth of regular microneedling.
However, this may also limit Morpheus8’s efficacy on facelift. To achieve the maximum skin tightening and facelift results from the Morpheus8 treatment, we recommend you try the 4mm depth (at least for your first treatment), provided you are 30+ years old and your skin is not excessively thin. In fact, Morpheus8 stimulates new collagen formation, which can lead to increased facial volume, mitigating concerns about fat loss in our clients who’ve undergone the 4mm treatment. Another vital factor is adjusting the energy setting to prevent unwanted volume loss. To ensure that Morpheus8 aligns perfectly with your aesthetic goals and achieves your desired outcome, we strongly advise scheduling a consultation and choosing an experienced Morpheus8 provider like us.
While there is usually minimal downtime associated with Morpheus8, patients may experience some redness, swelling, and minor skin sensitivity in the treated area immediately after the procedure. These effects generally subside within 2-3 days, and most individuals can resume their regular activities relatively quickly.
The number of Morpheus8 treatments needed varies depending on individual goals and the specific concerns being addressed. To reap the full benefits, we usually suggest 3-6 treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart. To maintain the results, we recommend performing Morpheus8 treatments annually.
The duration of a Morpheus8 treatment session can vary depending on the treatment area and the extent of the concerns being addressed. Typically, a session may take between 30 to 60 minutes (excluding the numbing time) for a specific area.
Results from Morpheus8 are often progressive and may not be immediately apparent. While some improvements may be visible shortly after the treatment, the full benefits of collagen regeneration and skin rejuvenation can take several weeks to become noticeable.
Pre-care and post-care instructions are essential for ensuring the best results from Morpheus8 treatments while minimizing potential side effects. The followings are some recommended general pre- and post-care instructions.
Stay Hydrated: Maintain proper hydration by drinking adequate water before the procedure.
Avoid Certain Skin Irritating Products: Some skincare products with harsh ingredients may increase skin sensitivity and cause severe irritation after the Morpheus8 treatment. Avoid using the following skincare products for at least 3 days prior to the treatment: Retinoids, Retinols, Vitamin C, Glycolic Acid, Tretinoin, and Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), or Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs), etc. You should only use gentle cleanser and moisturizer to prepare for the treatment.
Protect Your Skin from Sun Exposure: After Morpheus8 treatment, it’s crucial to protect your skin from direct sun exposure. Wear sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and protective clothing (if possible), and avoid prolonged sun exposure for several weeks post-treatment.
Gentle Skincare & Minimal Makeup: Use gentle skincare products recommended by your practitioner. Avoid harsh or abrasive products that may irritate the skin. You can resume your makup after 1 day (keep it minimal if possible for 2-3 days), and the usual skincare routine after 2-3 days. Retinols may be used again 5-7 days after the treatment.
Avoid Excessive Heat: Steer clear of hot showers, saunas, steam rooms, and excessive heat exposure for a few days after the procedure, as the skin may be more sensitive.
Minimal Makeup: You may be advised to avoid makeup for the first 24 hours following the treatment. Some practitioners allow makeup application after the initial day.
Hydration: Maintain skin hydration by using a moisturizer as recommended by your practitioner.
Avoid Exfoliation: Refrain from using exfoliating products or procedures (like chemical peels) until your practitioner gives the green light.
No Scrubbing: Do not scrub, rub, or pick at the treated area, as this can increase the risk of irritation or infection.
Cool Compresses: If you experience swelling or discomfort, cool compresses can help alleviate these symptoms.
