Reveal a brighter, more luminous skin
At Ithaca Medical Aesthetics your provider will use the most innovative and advanced techniques during your Morpheus8 procedure to give you dramatic results with just one treatment.
WHAT IS MORPHEUS8?
Morpheus8 (M8) is a minimally-invasive fractional skin treatment which delivers radio-frequency energy at a variety of subdermal depths through gold-coated microneedles located at the tip of the headpiece.
The radio-frequency heat also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, tightening the fibroseptal network. This results in firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
Morpheus8 can be combined with PRP therapy for optimal results!

What is Morpheus8 Resurfacing?
Morpheus8 Resurfacing is a targeted, fractionated resurfacing procedure that can be performed with your Morpheus8 radiofrequency (RF) microneedling procedure or on its own.
How does Morpheus8 Resurfacing work?
Morpheus8 Resurfacing uses the same technology as the other Morpheus8 treatments you have come to love, gold-coated 24 micropins. The Morpheus8 Resurfacing tip measures, 0.5 mm, and penetrates the skin, delivering powerful RF (radiofrequency) energy to the epidermis (outer layer of ) and dermis (middle layer of skin) to treat fine wrinkle, acne scars, uneven skin tone/discoloration, and dryness.
Other Morpheus8 face and Neck treatments can deliver radiofrequency energy from 1- 4mm to address deeper wrinkles, sagging skin and jowling.
What conditions does Morpheus8 Resurfacing treat?
Morpheus8 Resurfacing treats fine lines that cannot be treated with neurotoxins like Botox, Dysport or Xeomin nor with filler. It also treats superficial textural irregularities and reveals brighter, more luminous skin much like a chemical peel minus the peeling.
How many Morpheus8 Resurfacing will I need?
We recommend a series of 3-6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart for optimal results.
When is the best time to receive a Morpheus8 Resurfacing treatment?
The Morpheus8 Resurfacing treatment may be performed on its own or as an add-on treatment to your standard Morpheus8 treatment to target the more superficial layers of the skin!
How much downtime is involved for a Morpheus8 Resurfacing treatment?
There is only social downtime associated with this treatment. You may look like you have a mild sunburn for 24-48 hours. There may also be small dots on certain parts of the treatment area, but those usually resolve within 3-6 days.
How much does Morpheus8 Resurfacing cost?
You can find all of our pricing here. For a more affordable option, patients can opt for our resurfacing “add-on" treatment. The perk: You get two procedures done at the same time!
How do I know if I am a candidate for Morpheus8 Resurfacing?
The best way to determine if you are a candidate for treatment is to schedule a consultation.

Before & After Morpheus8
DR JUDY TODD TRANSFORMS JUDY MURRAY'S SKIN WITH THREE MORPHEUS8 TREATMENTS
.....and Judy, 61-year-old, looks 10 years younger! Hear what she had to say about her experience.
"That was absolute gold dust! I mean if they’ve noticed and mentioned it, then it clearly has made a huge difference, and that made me very happy.
“Andy and Jamie couldn’t work out what I’d been up to but when I’ve explained it to them, they were interested and Jamie’s wife even said to me that she’d had some micro-needling treatments, but not one as advanced as the one I’d had.
“I’d say it’s taken at least ten years off my appearance, as you can see for yourself. I am absolutely thrilled to bits with the result, my skin is fresher, clearer, and I feel much better about myself.
"The lines on my face have softened significantly and what I love about it most is how many people are noticing and are saying, 'what have you done to your skin,' and then I tell them, that it’s a natural treatment and it’s all thanks to Dr Judy Todd.
"I’ll definitely do it again, it has really helped me, and I would recommend it to anybody.”
The Morpheus8 results speak for themselves:
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A MORPHEUS8 PROCEDURE?
The Morpheus8 handheld device works by “stamping” the skin with the microneedles in order to remodel deep layers of the skin. During the treatment you will feel heat and pressure on the treatment area. Different levels of energy can be used to address different aesthetic concerns. Because there Morpheus8 doesn’t use incisions, there is no scarring left behind. Every patient is different, but on average, 1-3 Morpheus8 sessions may be needed to achieve the desired results.
DOWNTIME AND RECOVERY
Recovery and downtime are greatly dependent on the individual, intensity of treatment, and areas treated.
However, most patients resume their normal activities within 3-5 days following an M8 treatment
Sun exposure should be avoided to protect the newly resurfaced skin.
What to Expect the day of...
A Morpheus 8 treatment takes approximately 1 hour.
You will be asked to arrive 45 minutes early to allow time for numbing of the area. We use a topical numbing cream to numb the area and minimize discomfort. Other pain-control options are available including Pro-Nox and Mesoram.
Pro-Nox is a patient-controlled inhaled analgesia system that delivers a 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide mixture for the relief of pain and anxiety. The effects of Pro-Nox wear off in 10-15 minutes allowing patients to resume normal activity right away including driving.
Mesoram is a multi-needle injection that delivers small amounts of lidocaine to the treatment area. Mesoram is ideal for Morpheus8 treatments as it numbs at varying depths below the skin and as the skin surface.
Following treatment, skin may be slightly red, similar to a mild sunburn. Redness should subside within the first 24 hours following treatment. Expect up to 3 days of social downtime. While improvement is noticeable after 1 treatment, to achieve optimal effect, 3-4 treatments are typically recommended.
