How to Use Morpheus 8 to Treat Acne Scarring

Scars from acne serve as a painful reminder of the skin problem, which can start during puberty and last into adulthood. If you have acne scars, you already know that they won’t simply go away or lighten with time. Medical micro-needling, which includes keloid, ice pick, and boxcar scarring, has emerged in recent years as one of the most well-liked and successful non-surgical treatments for minimizing or even eliminating a variety of tough acne scars.


Teenage or adult acne causes inflammation and a hindered skin healing process, which results in the formation of acne scars.

Cells reproduce and create new skin and connective tissues as the wound heals. Collagen is one such connective tissue that is essential for repairing the integrity of your skin. You may, however, develop sunken (atrophic) scars as a result of the fact that collagen formation might ‘lag’ during the healing process after acne. These are also referred to as rolling scars, ice pick scars, and boxcar scars. In some instances, the skin cells will inadvertently produce an excessive quantity of collagen, which results in elevated scars known as hypertrophic scars.

Keloid scarring, which can be challenging to cure and necessitates constant monitoring by a medically experienced skin expert, occurs when the scar grows larger and more noticeable than the original scar.


Morpheus8 is a sophisticated radiofrequency (RF), fractional medical microneedling procedure that aids in reshaping and evening out uneven and damaged skin. Your doctor will apply the unique handpiece to the skin’s target area while performing the procedure. The Morpheus8 device will pierce the skin and leave tiny incisions beneath the skin. While this is happening, the handpiece emits RF energy waves to speed up the healing process. A variety of naturally occurring healing processes are triggered by this hybrid technology; similar healing processes happen whenever you sustain a skin wound. Collagen is one of the tissues that is swiftly formed by rapidly regenerating cells.


You will be given some topical anesthetic lotion to numb the region prior to the procedure. Any discomfort should vanish as a result. However, because the RF heat radiation warmed the deeper layers of the skin, you could still be able to feel a warm, prickling feeling for up to several hours following your treatment. These feelings are perfectly normal to have, and they shouldn’t hurt.


Following your Morpheus8 acne scar treatment, you may experience some slight redness and irritation that will remain for three days. This is why many of our patients get their treatment on a Thursday or Friday, allowing them to recover over the weekend and return to work on Monday feeling renewed and energized. It’s vital to remember that Morpheus8 has no ‘clinical’ downtime, so you won’t need to spend time at home recovering or resting. Because you will have some aesthetic downtime, you may want to avoid any social events during your treatment.


Morpheus8 can help the majority of persons who have mild to severe acne scars. However, before your treatment, we will always request that you attend a no-obligation consultation to evaluate your skin, review your medical history, and advise you on how many treatments we believe will be appropriate for your unique skin conditions. You can book your first treatment once we are confident that Morpheus8 will be both safe and effective.


Morpheus8 acne scar therapy has the following contraindications:

  • Keloid scars – Some patients with severe, chronic keloid scarring may be unable to get treatment; your practitioner will need to discuss this with you during your pre-treatment consultation.
  • Eczema, psoriasis, or other chronic skin diseases;
  • Actinic (solar) keratosis in the past;
  • Previous Herpes Simplex infections
  • A family history of hemophilia
  • A diabetic history
  • Raised moles are present.
  • The treated region has warts.


For moderate acne scarring, your practitioner will recommend 1 to 2 Morpheus8 treatment sessions. For moderate to severe acne scars, a course of up to four treatments spaced at least a month apart may be recommended, giving your skin time to heal between treatments. During your pre-treatment skin assessment and consultation, your clinical will create a strategy for you.


Morpheus8 increases the development of new collagen in the skin, resulting in long-term effects. Scars will be dramatically improved, and your skin will become smoother, softer, and more evenly toned in the months after treatment.

Read How I Improved My Lichen Sclerosus

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
