Morpheus8 Provides Minimally Invasive Fractional Skin Remodeling
Problematic skin isn’t something you have to live with. Fortunately, there are revolutionary treatments designed to provide amazing beauty-boosting benefits, like the fractional skin remodeling power of Morpheus8.
It’s no secret that collagen and elastin are the building blocks of youthful, glowing skin. But time, environmental exposure, lifestyle choices, and even genetics impact the abundance and quality of these skin essentials, which eventually leads to wrinkles, sagging, and volume loss.
What is Morpheus8?
Morphheus8 is a minimally invasive microneedling device that utilizes radiofrequency energy to revitalize the skin of the face and body. It’s the first and only FDA-cleared technology to provide deep 8mm subdermal adipose tissue remodeling. Basically, this fractional treatment penetrates the deeper layers of the skin and fat to rev up collagen and elastin production to promote a smoother, youthful appearance.
What areas can be treated with Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 can be used to treat virtually any area of the face and body that would benefit from wrinkle and/or scar reduction, skin tightening, and refined contouring. The most common areas treated are the face and neck. Other common treatment areas include the abdomen and knees, but Morpheus8 can be used to improve any area where skin rejuvenation is desired.
Am I a candidate for Morpheus8?
For generally healthy individuals, Morpheus8’s innovative technology can be used safely on all skin types. The device’s unique properties even allow darker skin tones to be treated with little risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which can be common with other skin resurfacing methods.
Patients with the following skin conditions have experienced improvement with Morpheus8 treatments:
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Acne scarring as well as other scars on the face and body
- Mild sagging of the face and neck
- Mild jowling
- Deep lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
What can I expect during and after treatment with Morpheus8?
To ensure our patients’ utmost comfort, we apply a topical numbing cream prior to treatment. Then, we use a small handheld applicator to gently go over the desired treatment area. The tip of the applicator has a series of tiny needles that deliver radiofrequency energy waves to the deeper layers of the skin. The movement of the applicator is more like a stamping motion rather than gliding it across the skin. Treatment takes about an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated. Once your session is complete, you are free to continue your daily activities.
Are there any side effects with Morpheus8?
Patients can expect the skin in the treatment area to be red for a couple of days after their procedure (much like a light sunburn). Mild swelling may also occur. These effects are typically mild and will diminish fairly quickly.
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on your individual aesthetic goals, one to three treatments are expected for most patients. While the results of Morpheus8 treatments are long lasting, additional treatments may be recommended every 18 months to two years to maintain best results.
When can I expect to see results with Morpheus8?
You can expect visible improvement within a few days. The most noticeable results appear typically in about three to four weeks, however skin improvements can continue for up to three months following your treatment. Most patients experience rejuvenating effects that last over a year.
