The face is often the first thing you notice about a person. Therefore, it is all the more important for us to have a friendly and positive appearance. In the course of time, however, more and more wrinkles appear on the face, creating a changed and strange facial expression. The perception of this change can be quite different. While some people are less bothered by small and large wrinkles, others wish they could turn back time a little when they look in the mirror.
Even if every skin ages differently and the causes for premature skin aging can be quite different, there are some factors that can be considered fundamental.
Genetic predisposition plays a major role, especially with regard to the internal processes of skin aging, such as the lack of collagen production or the supply of nutrients to the skin. External influences such as smoking, too much alcohol or too much stress can also lead to wrinkles. A connection between early skin aging and excessive sunbathing has been proven for a long time. If you follow a healthy lifestyle and a few tips, you can positively influence your skin. Sooner or later, however, the appearance of wrinkles and furrows is unfortunately inevitable.
Already between the 20. and 30. The visible process of skin aging begins at the age of 50. Until then, the body produces sufficient collagen – the tissue is firm and yet stretchable due to elastin fibers. With increasing age, the skin produces less collagen and elastin, the skin cells divide more slowly and the original elasticity is lost.

The water and fat content of the skin decreases, it becomes thinner and drier. The supply of nutrients to the skin also decreases. Visible skin aging is first noticeable by fine wrinkles around the eyes and corners of the mouth, but the tension of the collagen fibers in the subcutaneous tissue also decreases in the area of the upper lip and neck.
After a few years, not only do individual wrinkles develop into deep furrows, but the face also loses volume due to the sagging of the connective tissue. Even though everyone can observe the natural aging process of the skin in their face, it is only in fast motion that the gradual process becomes clear.

What is MORPHEUS8™ treatment and how does it work??
Morpheus8™ is a non-surgical treatment method from InMode, the leading manufacturer of radiofrequency devices in the medical-cosmetic field.
Morpheus8™ by InMode has medical approval and is FDA cleared.
Morpheus8™ is an innovative further development of classic MicroNeedling.
Morpheus8™ is fractional radiofrequency needling, making it the ultimate combination of radiofrequency treatment and DeepNeedling for skin rejuvenation, skin tightening, and scar correction.
It is a deep and safe fractional treatment with a penetration depth of up to 4 mm and with an additional thermal profile of up to 2 mm and a heating depth of up to 6 mm. In this DeepNeedling, the needles are inserted into the skin and a radiofrequency heat pulse is delivered through the needle tips. Radiofrequency therapy is the talk of the town in aesthetic medicine and cosmetics and is hailed as one of the new miracle weapons for wrinkle treatment, skin tightening, skin rejuvenation and skin tightening as well as firming fat reduction without surgery.
Radiofrequency energy has been known from medicine for years, is considered a stimulant for cell renewal and collagen synthesis, and is used for a variety of facial and body treatments.
However, not all radio frequency is the same. Cosmetic radiofrequency treatments are introduced through the skin surface and act in the upper layers of the skin. Medical aesthetic fractional radiofrequency treatments are inserted into deeper layers of the skin and develop the firming effect in deeper layers of the skin.
Morpheus8™ is thus a treatment that activates collagen formation in the deeper layers of the skin. Growth factors are released and fibroblasts are stimulated, thus producing increased collagen and elastin fibers. By working deep into the skin, tissues on the face and body can be rebuilt to reveal a radiant and youthful appearance.
What is the mode of action of radiofrequency therapy against wrinkles?
Penetration depth of radiofrequency into the skin
Modern radiofrequency therapy is a gentle alternative to classic surgical procedures and a scientifically proven method for building up and rebuilding collagen. The aesthetes of the beauty industry and also we at Schon& More beautiful trust the device from the company InMode™. Morpheus8™ is a new member of the InMode family. Fraktora’s quasi-big brother works with bipolar or. Multipolar radiofrequency current, which in combination with fractional needling is introduced even deeper and more specifically in all dermal layers.
The effect of this effective treatment is impressive: through the controlled and mild heating of all dermal layers, a restructuring of the elastin-collagen fiber network occurs due to the new formation of collagen and elastin as well as fibroblasts and hyaluronic acid in the skin . The result is a significant tightening of the connective tissue, which makes the skin surface look younger and firmer as well as smoothed and tightened after just one session. Without stress or damage, the tissue is sustainably tightened from the depths.
By combining MicroNeedling and radiofrequency energy, radiofrequency penetrates not only the superficial tissue, but also into the fat layer to improve the contour of the face. The radiofrequency waves have a positive effect on the fat cells [adipocytes], which plays an important role especially in circumference reductions. Due to the reaction of fat cells to physical changes [z. B. temperature], radiofrequency therapy can be shown to accelerate fat reduction in depth, and fat deposits can also be reduced directly.
Radiofrequency therapy in our Medical Beauty Institute has nothing to do with the superficial, purely cosmetic radiofrequency therapy that you may already be familiar with from cosmetic studios. The radiofrequency procedure we offer is effective in many ways and can be used for skin renewal, fat reduction, or as a gentle facelift to tighten tissue and skin.
What is the procedure of a MORPHEUS8™ treatment??
Morpheus 8™ is a fractionated skin treatment that stimulates collagen production in the dermis [dermis]. By targeting these deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process.
On the device head of the Morpheus8™ are numerous small needles that penetrate the skin layer and tissue at preselected depths. Radiofrequency energy is distributed to the deepest layer of the skin to stimulate the formation of new collagen and elastin. MicroNeedling also promotes cell renewal of the skin. The combination has a stronger smoothing and tightening effect. After the treatment, the skin is particularly receptive to skin care products.
The length of the needles varies depending on the treatment area and individual conditions. For example, in a facial treatment, needles with a length of one to three millimeters are used. Needles up to four millimeters long are usually used on other areas of the body with slightly thicker skin. The needles are surrounded by a silicone sheath, so the energy is delivered only under the skin. How to keep the treated skin dry after the treatment.
The tiny injuries caused by the needles stimulate the body’s own regeneration processes. The newly formed cells achieve a younger and fresher appearance. The radiofrequency energy also ensures that the areas are tightened and freed from any stubborn fat deposits.
Treatment takes place with a local anesthetic. After the treatment it is recommended to cool the areas. We plan the treatment to suit you individually.
Which areas of the body can be treated with MORPHEUS8™?
Areas of the body that can be treated
In principle, wrinkle treatment with radiofrequency therapy is suitable for almost every skin type and takes little time.
Morpheus 8™ can be used in all areas that benefit from subdermal renewal. The most frequently treated areas are
– Face + eye area
– Neck, decollete and nape
– Body [upper arms | abdomen | back | thighs | knees | buttocks]
and therefore all zones that benefit from skin renewal.
Morpheus8™ can be used for skin rejuvenation, structural improvement and scar correction.
In addition, the procedure has established itself in the field of non-invasive sweat gland treatment. In the case of hyperhidrosis [extreme sweating], the overactive sweat glands secrete a relatively large amount of sweat without the need for an external influence. The treatment with the four millimeter long needles and the temperature increase, which is produced by the radiofrequency energy, the functionality of the corresponding sweat glands is specifically switched off.
What results can be expected and when?
- Rejuvenation of the skin + improvement of the skin structure
- Tightening of facial contours [sagging cheeks | double chin | bags under the eyes]
- Refinement of skin texture [ pores, pigmentation and scars] + Minimization of large pores
- Moisturization [more glow]

- Firming fat reduction + reduction of localized fat deposits [body sculpting]
- Reduction of cellulite + stretch marks [striae]
- Reduction of sweat glands [hyperhidrosis treatment]
- Treatment of pigment spots
First results can be seen within a few days, however, significant results appear after about 3 weeks. After a stage with immediate effect, you have to wait about 2 months for the natural skin renewal and the final result. The effect achieved by the natural skin build-up lasts for years.

What risks, side effects& Contraindications exist?
Fractional radiofrequency needling is a painless, minimally invasive procedure and is considered low-risk. Following treatment with Morpheus8™, slight redness or swelling may appear in the treated area, which will subside on its own after a few days. Major complications do not commonly occur with the minimally invasive methods.
The advantage of Morpheus8™ technology is that the treatment can be used on any skin and on all skin types. The unique properties allow darker skin types to be treated as well.
Patients who wear a heart or brain pacemaker must not be treated with radiofrequency.
What aftercare to consider?
Immediately after the treatment you can go home again. Restrictions are generally not to be expected. On the day of treatment, you should still take it easy and cool and moisturize the treated areas and avoid direct sun exposure. Already on the following day the usual activities can be resumed. According to experience, sports are also possible again immediately.
Makeup can usually be reapplied 1 to 2 days later. It is recommended to use a good sunscreen on sunny days and to avoid intensive sunbathing and solariums for a few days. You should also do without sauna and swimming pool visits for a few days.
How many treatments are necessary?
The duration and frequency of application is customized specifically to you for optimal results. 2 to 3 treatments at intervals of 3 to 6 weeks are recommended. With a touch-up treatment after 6 to 12 months, a long-lasting effect is achieved.
For the treatment of hyperhidrosis, two treatment sessions with Morpheus8™ are usually necessary to achieve the best possible result. The second treatment takes place three months after the first treatment. Experience shows that the response rate for hyperhidrosis treatment with Morpheus8™ is high.
Duration and cost of treatment?
The duration of the treatment depends on the size of the area. Small procedures around the eye area are usually completed in 30 minutes. For larger areas, the treatment will take approximately 60 minutes to complete.
The cost of the treatment depends on the size of the area to be treated as well as the facial contours to be treated. Introductory prices start from 450 € for the eye area [see price list for details ].
