Morpheus8 vs Fractora: Which Is Better?


What Is Radiofrequency Microneedling?

Both Morpheus8 and Fractora are radiofrequency (RF) microneedling treatments that have been heralded as the next best alternative to a surgical facelift. But how does it work?

The two treatments combine radiofrequency waves and microneedling to deliver smooth, tighter, more even skin. 


You may have come across microneedling as a standalone treatment – it’s a highly effective way to stimulate collagen in your skin. Fine needles are used to create ‘micro channels’ in your skin. These minuscule injuries kickstart your body’s healing process, which includes the production of new collagen in the affected area. The healing process is rapid since the skin trauma is minimal so it’s not long before you start to see your new healthy, plump skin. 


Radiofrequency is a non surgical approach to skin tightening and resurfacing. It’s pretty scientific, so we won’t go into too much detail but please feel free to ask your aesthetician for more information if you’d like to know.

In basic terms, radiofrequency works by using an electric current to create electromagnetic waves. Sounds a bit scary, doesn’t it? Don’t worry – the current created isn’t like the one you might get from an electric fence or damaged appliance – these radio waves travel so quickly they don’t affect your body in the same way so you won’t feel an electric shock. 

With RF, the radio waves heat up the deeper layers of your skin and in response to this, your body creates new collagen and elastin fibres, leaving you with toned, youthful skin.

Two Times The Power 

So, imagine the potency of these two treatments combined. It’s no wonder that Morpheus8 and Fractora have been so sought after by those who are looking to improve the texture and tone of their skin.



Now you know what the treatment does, let’s find out about the specific treatments. Morpheus8 is the latest addition to the RF market, and with it, it brings some new features that make it a good solution for particular skin issues. 

Morpheus8 is capable of targeting even deeper layers of skin than any other device, and is equipped to offer multi-level treatment depths (Morpheus8 can target three levels of tissue within milliseconds of each other). This reduces treatment time and gives a uniform result.


Fractora is the industry favourite when it comes to radiofrequency treatment. With a long history of success and remarkable results, its reliability makes it ideal for treating all manner of skin complaints. 

Unlike Morpheus8, Fractora uses needles to a consistent depth and its energy is more concentrated on a specific area. Real Self gave it an 86% ‘Worth It’ rating, which is based on the real experiences of patients from all over the world. 

Fractora is minimally invasive, with most patients feeling little to no discomfort during treatment, and there is no downtime. As the needles do cause tiny holes in your skin, you will experience some redness for a few days as these begin to heal. 

You will notice a transformation in your skin very quickly, as your collagen and elastin levels increase, meaning you can still see improvement up to 6 months after your treatment! 

What Can Morpheus8 And Fractora Treat?

Both treatments can effectively resolve the most common skin issues, but each has its strengths. Below is a list of what RF Microneedling can do; 


Fractora and Morpheus8 both deliver outstanding results when it comes to reducing or even completely removing fine lines and wrinkles. Fractora particularly revitalises the depths of your skin so your body naturally diminishes wrinkles such as crow’s feet, smoker’s lines, bunny lines, frown lines and deep furrows.


Sagging Skin

Wrinkles aren’t the only issue associated with the loss of collagen in your skin – drooping, sagging skin is, too. Without the support of collagen and the springiness of elastin, your skin begins to ‘hang’, and in certain areas of your face and body, this can look more obvious. Under your eyes as eye bags, under your chin as jowls and under your arms as bingo wings – these areas suffer the most with skin laxity. 

The tightening that Morpheus8 and Fractora provide is nothing short of miraculous. With a short course of treatments, loose skin becomes taught, smooth and even – taking years off your face and boosting your confidence!


Crepey Skin

Skin that’s lost its elasticity can look textured and crepey and your neck and décolletage tend to show this the most. If you’re fed up with hiding your neck beneath a scarf, Fractora can restore your skin’s stretchiness so you don’t need to feel anxious about showing your neck.


Acne Scarring

Acne scars can be as distressing as acne itself, especially those that are more pitted and hard to cover up. There are lots of solutions for reducing acne scars, but Fractora has the most outstanding track record for evening and smoothing skin affected by acne scars. 

Thanks to the radiofrequency, the skin around your scarring is ‘built up’ by new collagen. It’s also safe to use on all skin types and shades, without the risk of causing pigment damage.


So, Which Is Best: Morpheus8 Or Fractora?

On the face of it, the two solutions seem very similar. They both use the same technology and process, however, there are differences. 

Fractora is an all-round solution – from acne scarring to sagging skin to wrinkles and lines – this treatment will transform your skin so it looks smoother, feels plumper and glows with health. 

Morpheus8 offers greater depth and is said to offer impressive skin tightening capabilities.

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.
