Secret PRO RF vs. Morpheus 8
RF microneedling works by creating heat injury below the skin surface, which induces long-term deeper skin remodelling, collagen generation, and as a result healthier and thicker skin.
The treatment is ideal for skin revitalization, improving laxity, wrinkles, stretch marks and scarring while enhancing skin tone and texture.
There are several devices available on the market, which effectiveness are difficult to compare as setting and technician variable factors often influences treatment final effects. While each device performs the same basic function there are differences in the technology, which we will compare below:
|Morpheous 8||Secret PRO RF|
|Type of treatment||Dermal and subdermal||Dermal and subdermal|
|No of Pins||24||25/64|
|Ablation depth||up to 4.5mm||up to 4mm|
|Heating depth||up to 6mm||up to 5.5mm|
|Repetition Rate||up to 2pps||0.2/0.5/0.8/1/2pps|
Morpeous 8 and Secret Pro RF technologies
Both technologies are extremely effective in treating a range of issues on both the face and body. The device induces dermal re-modeling and is designed to stimulate and remodel collagen to address the common signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and mild to moderate sagging. The skin texture and superficial epidermal irregularities such as pigmentation ie sunspots, scarring, acne scars and stretch marks.
One of the primary benefits of Secret RF is that the treatment is highly customizable, making it suitable for a wide range of skin types or concerns. The precision and downtime is reduced by Secret PRO technology when compared with competitors ie Morpheous 8. Those who are concerned about skin sensitivity or hyperpigmentation are often better suited for the Secret RF, as the treatment can be adjusted according to the need.
Both RF technologies ensure treatments, which requires little to no downtime. Some side effects commonly include slight swelling or redness, but these should subside quickly. Results begin to emerge after their very first treatment, and these continue to improve over time.
Morpheus8 vs Secret PRO – treatment areas
- Morpheous 8 – less flexible depth of needle penetration, therefore best on areas ie jowls, midface
- Secret Pro RF – variable depth and needle type, therefore, can be selected uniquely to your needs for skin tightening and collagen stimulation, subcutaneous fat tissue ablation and more delicate areas such as under eyes or neck.
Morpheus8 is designed to target deeper layers of the skin, triggering collagen production for a more youthful or rejuvenated look, which may not have immediate effects or help skin discolorations and texture. The treatment is less adjustable compared to options like Secret RF, meaning that there is less flexibility to adjust treatment to your individual skin needs such as skin type, tone, target more delicate areas such as skin around the eyes or neck (due to depth of RF penetration). Morpheous 8 is much more effective for areas such as jawline, cheeks, nasolabial folds whereas Secret PRO can effectively target jawline as well as more delicate areas ie lower eyelids and neck skin.
Candidates for Secret RF vs. Morpheus8
Secret PRO RF and Morpheus8 are both suitable for a wide range of patients, as radiofrequency microneedling is known to be safe and effective for many skin types, tones, and concerns.
- Secret PRO RF may also be a better option for those with more sensitive skin types, as the treatment is customizable and adjustable. You will notice quicker results with less downtime as treatment can be customised for texture improvement and collagen stimulation
- Morpheous 8 is primarily based on collagen stimulation, therefore more sessions or longer time periods are required for results to develop
The procedures and healing process after Secret RF and Morpheus8 are overall comparable. Both options use a combination of microneedles and radiofrequency energy to stimulate new collagen production using the body’s natural healing response. The total length of Secret RF or Morpheus 8 treatment will vary depending on the size of the treatment area, but you can expect about 45 minutes on average. Both treatments recommend three sessions to reach ideal results.
