Exion Microneedling
Exion Radiofrequency Micro Needling
Wondering about comparing BTL Exion and InMode Morpheus8 treatments?
Radiofrequency microneedling is a cutting-edge skincare technique that combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production to tighten pores, wrinkles and scarring.
Both offer very deep tissue stimulation with very deep penetration of needles. They both then release a customizable amount of radiofrequency energy (heat) into the skin, which produces collagen, strengthens and tightens the skin.

The radiofrequency technology is categorized into monopolar and bipolar, each with its own set of characteristics.

In summary, Morpheus8 uses bi-polar radiofrequency which stays in the surface of the skin. This is effective, but unfortunately very painful. Exion’s monopolar delivery send the energy deep into the skin and then exists through a grounding pad on your back or abdomen, making the heat much less painful and able to penetrate deeper layers of tissue.

Exion Radiofrequency Micro Needling

BTL Exion

36 needles (more pokes = more tightening)

1-2 passes (20-30 mins for full face)

Little to no downtime

Reaches depths of 4mm for face

Can reach extended depth of 8mm

Monopolar delivery (deeper reaching/less pain)

InMode Morpheus8

12-24 needles

3-5 passes (40-60 mins for full face)

Little to no downtime

Reaches depths of 4mm for face

Cannot reach extended depth

Bipolar delivery (Shallow penetration/more pain)

Monopolar Radiofrequency Microneedling (BTL Exion): Less Pain, More Gain

Focused Energy Delivery:
Monopolar technology delivers radiofrequency energy through a single electrode, providing a
more concentrated and targeted treatment. The focused energy minimizes discomfort while maximizing the effectiveness of collagen stimulation.

Deeper Energy Penetration:
Monopolar radiofrequency penetrates the skin more deeply, reaching the dermal layer where collagen production is stimulated, then flows through the body to the grounding pad placed on

your back or abdomen. This much deeper penetration of heat allows for more profound skin tightening and rejuvenation.

Less Surface Discomfort/Pain:
The focused, deep reaching energy minimizes surface discomfort, making the procedure MUCH more tolerable. All patients report a noticeably more comfortable experience during and after Exion monopolar treatments.

Faster Treatments:
Exion’s disposable needle tips contain 36 needles (vs 12-24 for Morpheus8), which means more columns created in your skin, resulting in more collagen being produced. This also means that less passes over the skin are required, making the treatment time half of the Morpheus8.

Bipolar Radiofrequency Microneedling (such as Morpheus8): Balancing Act with Increased Pain
Dual Electrodes:
Bipolar technology uses two electrodes in the handpiece, creating a balanced but broader distribution of radiofrequency energy across the surface of the skin. Basically, the radiofrequency heat jumps from one side of the handpiece to the other The wider energy dispersion means increased discomfort during the procedure.

Shallower Penetration:
Due to the dual electrode configuration, bipolar radiofrequency does not penetrate as deeply as monopolar technology, which also causes much more discomfort. Shallower penetration of heat may lead to less effective collagen stimulation and skin rejuvenation.

Appointment Time: 1-2 Hours depending on the size of area being treated.

Number of sessions required: Packages of 3 sessions

Cost: Between $1,700-$3,600, depending on how many areas are being treated in the sessions.

Pain Level: 5/10 after 30 minutes of prescription numbing cream
