The Well Lounge team is quite familiar with two popular collagen-inducing treatments known for being highly effective at rejuvenating the skin, but the question is, which is better: microneedling or Morpheus8? Our Newtown-based team believes that before you decide on either option—or any cosmetic procedure—you should first do your research and ask the right questions. Let’s take a closer look at these two procedures.

First, we can all agree that just about everyone wants supple, glowing, and smooth skin. It isn’t always easy to attain this goal, however, even with a good at-home skincare routine. Natural aging, sun exposure, pollution, gravity, and stress are just some of the factors that can cause your skin to become damaged and not as vibrant as it once was.

Collagen is one of the skin’s most crucial elements, and when it breaks down due to the factors listed above and the body’s production of the protein declines with age, wrinkles and hollow areas begin to form on the face.

Microneedling and Morpheus8 are two options you can consider for restarting collagen production in the skin and restoring a more youthful appearance. Not sure which of the two cosmetic treatments is best for you? See below for a basic comparison of the two:


Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses incredibly thin, sterilized needles to prick the surface and create small, almost imperceptible wounds that trigger the production of new collagen. Essentially, these treatments kickstart the body’s natural healing response by making microscopic punctures in the skin. This treatment can target various types of skin concerns, including enlarged pores, fine lines, wrinkles, loose or crepey skin, mild scars, skin discoloration, and stretch marks.


Morpheus8 is set apart by the way it combines traditional microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to optimize results. The tiny needles send RF energy into various depths of the skin as a way of creating controlled injuries to stimulate the healing response. The treatment can be used on the face, neck, and virtually anywhere on the body. The addition of the RF energy stimulates the production of more important skin proteins and enzymes—like collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid—than would be possible with conventional microneedling on its own. This RF microneedling treatment may also be better for skin tightening.
