Morpheus8 is a cosmetic device used to remodel and refresh the contours of the face and body. In Guadalajara, Mexico, Morpheus8 is offered by board-certified plastic surgeon and skin rejuvenation expert Dr. Jorge Echeagaray.
What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) device that can revitalize your skin and give you a more youthful appearance. This FDA-approved device has tiny, sterile needles that penetrate the skin and release radiofrequency energy into the underlying skin layers. The microinjuries that result from the tiny punctures and RF heat trigger the body’s own wound-healing response, which helps to optimize natural collagen production.
Morpheus8 works on for all skin tones can help improve and reduce the appearance of:
- Face and body scars
- Skin texture concerns, such as dilated pores
- Sun damage and fine wrinkles or lines
- Mild facial sagging and mild jowls
The microneedles and RF heat reach 8mm into the skin, making Morpheus8 one of the deepest treatments of its kind. This typically translates to more effective elimination of the above-mentioned targets and more robust collagen production compared to other microneedling with RF treatments.

Anyone over the age of 18 who wants to enhance their skin’s appearance non-surgically can benefit from a Morpheus8 treatment.

The Morpheus8 Consultation
During your appointment with Dr. Jorge Echeagaray for Morpheus8, he will review your medical history and help set reasonable expectations for your results. He will also carry out clinical assessments of the targeted areas.
Dr. Echeagaray will explain everything that will happen throughout the Morpheus8 procedure and will go over the possible outcomes. You will also receive aftercare instructions during the consultation.
The Morpheus8 Procedure
The treatment is relatively painless even with the deeper penetration of needles. The needles used are very sharp and fine, allowing the benefit of puncturing your skin without the feeling of any tugging or pulling. To ensure your comfort, a topical cream will be applied to the treatment area.
The Morpheus8 process typically lasts for around half an hour. As soon as the area to be treated is numb, the handpiece will be pressed against the patient’s skin, which will enable the microneedles to enter deeper layers of the skin in a controlled manner.
At the beginning, you might feel a slight prickling sensation followed by a feeling of warmth as the needles pass over your skin.
For best results, Dr. Echeagaray recommends 3 treatments, spaced 6-8 weeks apart, for maximal anti-aging and rejuvenation results. Patients with acne scarring and stretch marks may require 4-6 treatments. As every patient is different, treatment will be based on your individual anatomy, health history, and aesthetic needs.
Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro lesions for a few days after treatment, swelling, some scratches and slight redness for up to 1 week depending on treatment parameters and can return to work the day after treatment.
Patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing their future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process.
Visible results could start after one week, but typically after three weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment. Individuals’ results may vary.
