If you are exploring the world of skin rejuvenation, you may have come across two popular treatments – Morpheus8 and Spring Skin Renewal. Both incorporate collagen induction therapy and radiofrequency technologies, leaving you wondering which is the best choice for your skin needs.
In this article, we'll look at the key benefits of Morpheus8 and Spring Skin Renewal and highlight why the latter is the better choice for many individuals.
Morpheus8, a radiofrequency (RF) microneedling device, has been praised for its ability to improve various skin concerns such as wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and scarring. By combining radiofrequency energy with microneedling in one treatment, it targets the deeper layers of the skin and stimulates collagen production, resulting in more youthful and rejuvenated skin.
Spring Skin Renewal, on the other hand, is an innovative approach that combines back-to-back Radiofrequency Skin Tightening and Microneedling with Growth Factors. By incorporating both RF skin tightening and microneedling as separate procedures one after the other, this method delivers a comprehensive and rejuvenating experience that effectively addresses multiple skin concerns.
What sets Spring Skin Renewal apart is its ability to tailor the treatment to each individual patient, resulting in highly personalised results and ensuring superior patient satisfaction.
Let’s delve into each option.
Morpheus8 is a cosmetic medical device that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. It is used for non-surgical skin rejuvenation and tightening treatments. The device has small, ultrafine needles that penetrate the skin, delivering controlled RF energy to the underlying tissues.
This process stimulates collagen production and remodels the skin, resulting in improved texture, reduced wrinkles, and firmer skin.
Morpheus8 can be used on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, abdomen, arms, and thighs. The treatment is typically performed by a trained healthcare professional, such as a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. The depth of needle penetration and the intensity of RF energy can be adjusted according to the specific needs and concerns of the patient.
Some key benefits of Morpheus8 include:
- Improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Firming and tightening mildly lax skin, including eyelids
- Smoothing skin texture
- Reducing the appearance of large pores
- Treating hyperpigmentation, acne, acne scarring, and rosacea
Spring Skin Renewal Treatment
Spring Skin Renewal, on the other hand, is a combination of sequential treatments with radiofrequency skin tightening and microneedling with growth factors into a single session, therefore saving you time and effort.
The first step is to perform RF skin tightening on the face and neck. At Dr Aesthetica we used the highly acclaimed NuEra™ Tight with FocalRF Technology from Lumenis.
Using the world's leading medical device for skin remodeling (SkinPen), small microscopic channels are temporarily created in your skin. The goal is to trigger the skin's self-healing mechanism. Stem cell growth factors are then administered to the treatment area aid in healing.
With this customised approach, treatments are tailored to your specific skin concerns and needs. Some of the benefits of Spring Skin Renewal:
- Enhanced collagen production
- Improved skin texture and tone
- Reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Increased skin firmness and elasticity
Benefits of Spring Skin Renewal Over Morpheus8
Efficiency vs Convenience
While there is no denying that Morpheus8 is very convenient as a stand-alone treatment, it is important to appreciate that inherently that is also the limiting factor of the treatment. By this I mean that the efficacy and safety profile of the collagen induction therapy in Morpheus8 cannot match that of a specialty device like SkinPen.
Morpheus8 vs SkinPen
- SkinPen is an FDA-cleared microneedling device, which means it has undergone rigorous testing and meets specific safety standards. It has a proven safety record and is suitable for various skin types and conditions. Morpheus8, although widely used and generally considered safe, does not have specific FDA clearance for microneedling.
- SkinPen offers adjustable needle depth ranging from 0.25mm to 2.5mm, primarily targeting the superficial to mid-dermal layers. This makes it easy to use and allows practitioners to customize treatments according to individual needs.
The same goes for the RF technology used in Morpheus8 vs a world class RF machine like NuEra™ Tight.
Morpheus8 vs NuEra™ Tight
- NuEra™ Tight with FocalRF Technology is specifically designed by Lumenis to deliver precise and targeted RF energy to small and delicate areas, such as the face and neck.
- Contact Cooling and Comfort: NuEra™ Tight incorporates contact cooling technology. The device continuously cools the skin surface while delivering the RF energy, ensuring patient comfort throughout the session. This cooling feature can be particularly beneficial for individuals with low pain tolerance or sensitive skin.
- Real-Time Temperature Feedback: NuEra™ Tight utilizes advanced real-time temperature feedback mechanisms, allowing the practitioner to monitor and adjust the treatment parameters more accurately. This ensures that the targeted tissue receives optimal RF energy without risking overheating or discomfort.
Customisation and Flexibility
As you can see, Spring Skin Renewal which combines SkinPen and NuEra™ Tight offers customisation and flexibility, making it possible to tailor the treatment precisely to your individual needs. Radiofrequency Skin Tightening and Microneedling can be fine-tuned to address your unique concerns and achieve optimal results. Morpheus8, while effective for overall facial rejuvenation, may not offer the same level of adaptability to meet your specific requirements.
Reduced Downtime and Side Effects
Finally, Spring Skin Renewal typically has reduced downtime and side effects compared to Morpheus8 treatments. While Morpheus8 yields significant skin improvement, it may also come with longer recovery time and potential discomfort. Some patienst have found it to be very painful even with numbing cream applied.
Other patients have reported better experiences with the Spring Skin Renewal treatment, thanks to the careful and staggered approach. Your skin has more time to recover before the next treatment. Spring Skin Renewal has the added benefit of growth factors, which enhance the healing process and give your skin an overall more rejuvenated appearance.
Stem Cells Growth Factors
Growth factors are naturally occurring proteins in our bodies that promote healing and rejuvenation. In combination with microneedling, they can stimulate your skin's natural repair process for faster and more noticeable results, compared to Morpheus8.
These growth factors:
- Encourage cellular regeneration
- Promote faster recovery and more effective results
- Minimize potential side effects, such as post-treatment inflammation
This is also what makes Spring Skin Renewal the better choice for treating acne scarring and hyperpigmentation, as it enhances the healing process and delivers more effective results. Learn more about the application of growth factors in skin care.

Conclusion: Why Choose Spring Skin Renewal
Choosing the Spring Skin Renewal treatment comes with several advantages that make it a better choice compared to Morpheus8. Spring Skin Renewal combines back-to-back Radiofrequency Skin Tightening and Microneedling with Growth Factors treatments, providing a more comprehensive approach to improving your skin's appearance and health.
One benefit of opting for Spring Skin Renewal is the reduced number of clinic visits. This treatment combines Radiofrequency Skin Tightening and Microneedling into a single session. On the other hand, Morpheus8 is a stand-alone treatment that may necessitate multiple appointments to achieve the desired results.
Spring Skin Renewal also provides a more thorough treatment by incorporating Growth Factors into the Microneedling process. These Growth Factors aid in cellular regeneration and help to repair damaged skin more effectively. This may lead to more noticeable and lasting improvements in skin appearance and texture compared to Morpheus8.
Moreover, Spring Skin Renewal focuses on using a customised approach to treatment. Your practitioner will assess your specific skin concerns and tailor the treatment accordingly, ensuring that you receive the most appropriate care for your unique needs. This level of personalisation and attention to detail can lead to more satisfactory results than a one-size-fits-all approach like Morpheus8.
Lastly, although both Morpheus8 and Spring Skin Renewal are non-invasive, Spring Skin Renewal may be less aggressive to your skin. By combining two separate procedures in one session, your skin has more time to recover and heal before the next treatment. It can be a gentler option for those with particularly sensitive skin or for those who prefer a more gradual approach to skin rejuvenation.
In conclusion, Spring Skin Renewal offers several benefits that make it a more attractive option than Morpheus8. With its comprehensive treatment plan, customised approach, and promising results, you can enjoy improved skin health and appearance without the drawbacks of a one-size-fits-all treatment.
