You’ve most likely heard of celeb favourite skin rejuvenating treatment Morpheus8 from our client InMode… but have you heard of the new vagina rejuvenating, wellbeing boosting treatment Morpheus8 V?
That’s right, Morpheus8 V is for your V Jay.
We’re here to break the stigma and open up the floor for important discussions when it comes to women’s health and wellbeing – issues such as leaky bladders, dryness and changes post-childbirth are NORMAL, extremely common and nothing to be embarrassed about.
There’s no need to suffer in silence with ’embarrassing’ health issues – it’s 2022; it’s time to take back control & have open, honest conversations with our friends, families and doctors about our health. Let’s talk Morpheus8 V & InMode’s Empower RF / Forma V platforms, how Christine Quinn from Selling Sunset got on with her treatment, and how it all works with guest expert Dr Angela Rai.
What is Morpheus8 V?
Morpheus8 V is one of the hand-pieces that form the InMode Empower RF all-in-one women’s health solution. So let’s back it up one moment – what is Empower RF?
Dr Angela Rai (who specialises in women’s health issues, and is one of the first practitioners in the UK to offer Empower RF to her patients – learn more about her here) explains more.
“Empower RF is a revolutionary treatment for feminine wellness,” Dr Angela advises. “It’s a multifunctional platform that has advanced technologies to treat conditions such weak pelvic floor muscles, stress, urge and mixed urinary incontinence. It also improves circulation in the vagina, can help with pain relief and sexual function.”
Pretty much all bases covered there, then! Dr Angela explains the roles of some of the key Empower RF hand-pieces.
“Empower RF has 3 different modalities which can be used either individually or together depending on the needs of the patient. These are all non-surgical technological advancements to improve vaginal health.
1. V tone. V tone is a gentle, FDA approved, intravaginal electrical muscle stimulation (EMS). This rehabilitates weak pelvic floor muscles.
2. Forma V. Forma V is a comfortable treatment involving deep heating internally and externally to remodel tissue. This uses radiofrequency technology and is customised to improve tissue health.
3. Morpheus 8 V. Morpheus8 V is state of the art new technology for the vagina. Morpheus8 is well known for its amazing beneficial skin tightening and rejuvenation effects on the face & body – and has been used for years. Now there’s a vaginal treatment. It’s a game changer, improving everything from tissue laxity to lubrication and dryness.”
Wait, Christine Quinn from Selling Sunset has had it?!

How does Morpheus8 V work?
Back to Dr Angela Rai for this one!
“Morpheus8 V is a fast, effective bipolar radiofrequency technology with micro pins to renew deep layers, remodels tissue and stimulate collagen production; therefore enhancing and tightening the vaginal skin,” she tells us.
“These micro pins also induce collagen and elastin synthesis thereby rejuvenating the vaginal lining. The vulva and vagina become softer and more elastic improving function. The combination of RF with microneedling achieve optimal outcomes with minimal risks, downtime or side effects. Morpheus8 V / Empower RF is a safe and effective procedure and patients will be assessed by a doctor to ensure suitability. It can be used on all skin types. It is FDA cleared. Sessions are around 30minutes.”
How do I know if I have dryness downstairs that would benefit from Morpheus8 V & the Empower RF platform? What else does this treatment benefit?
First, let’s tackle the definition of dryness with Dr Angela. “Vaginal atrophy is a condition where the lining of the vagina gets thinner and drier due to low oestrogen levels,” she explains. “It frequently affects women going through the menopause and postmenopause. Symptoms include vaginal discomfort, burning, itching, spotting and pain and discomfort with sex. Vaginal dryness or atrophy can contribute to urinary frequency and urinary infections.”
“Vaginal and vulval health can be affected by many factors such as childbirth, menopause or poor health. “This treatment can help with many conditions including vaginal wall laxity, vaginal dryness, weak pelvic floor muscles, incontinence, sexual functioning lichen sclerosis. It has also been shown to help with recurrent vaginal infections such as Candida,” Dr Angela reveals.
Does it hurt?
The question on everyone’s minds right now! You’ll be glad to know the answer is no – Dr Angela advises that Morpheus8 V is actually a pretty comfortable procedure when used with topical local anaesthesia.
“Downtime is minimal,” she says, “We recommend avoiding intercourse and the use of tampons for 2-3 days following your treatment, but other than that, you’re free to go about your daily life as normal!”
How many treatments do you need?
As with everything, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer here – every patient and every vagina is unique; meaning no two plans will be the same. That being said, Dr Angela Rai was able to recommend having a course of 6 V-tone treatments 1-2 weeks apart, 3 Forma V treatments 4-8 weeks apart, and / or 3 Morpheus8 V treatments 4-8 weeks apart for optimal results.
