What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a cutting-edge and non-surgical device used for advanced radiofrequency microneedling procedures. This device combines the benefits of radiofrequency therapy and microneedling to tighten your skin tissues, treat superficial skin concerns, and improve your overall skin complexion and quality. It encourages collagen and elastin production, making your skin appear firm, even-textured, smooth, and supple. Morpheus8 can be adjusted to address various skin types, skin concerns, and treatment areas.
How does Morpheus8 work?
Microneedling is based on the radiofrequency microneedling skin rejuvenation technique. The device consists of extremely thin microneedles that puncture the uppermost surface of the skin and deliver radiofrequency energy into the deeper tissues. The superficial skin damage activates skin cell turnover, and the thermal energy encourages collagen production. Over time, the damaged skin tissues are replaced by new, fresh, and even-textured skin. And the new collagen fibers make your skin appear firm, taut, and voluminous.
Who is a good candidate for Morpheus8?
You’re a good candidate for Morpheus8 if you have skin laxity, sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, pigmented lesions, excessively large pores, acne scars, stretch marks, or other textural irregularities caused by age, sun damage, or injuries. The procedure is suitable for all skin types and colors, including darker skin colors, with no risk of hyperpigmentation. Since this procedure doesn’t involve incisions or injection of foreign objects, there are little-to-no contraindications. Your cosmetic provider will review your medical history to ensure you’re a viable candidate for Morpheus8.
What happens during the Morpheus8 procedure?
Morpheus8 is a noninvasive procedure that concludes within 30 minutes. The cosmetic provider might apply topical anesthesia, but it’s not necessary. After assessing your skin quality, the provider adjusts the Morpheus8 microneedling tips to puncture the appropriate depth. The microneedling device is moved over the treatment areas to make numerous micro-channels on the skin’s surface. As the Morpheus8 device moves over your skin, it delivers thermal energy deep within the dermal layers, stimulating collagen production.
Does it hurt? What is the downtime?
Morpheus8 treatment is painless. But the cosmetic doctor applies a numbing cream before the procedure to ensure comfort. At most, you’ll feel warm as the radiofrequency energy enters the skin. You may experience mild redness and swelling for a few hours, but you can resume all your regular activities immediately. There’s no downtime. The results will appear gradually over several weeks, but you might need multiple sessions for optimal results.
