What is Morpheus8?
Dubbed the “Non-Surgical facelift”, Morpheus8 is a safe and effective, minimally invasive, fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production in the underlying layers of the skin. As we age, our skin loses elasticity, resulting in wrinkles, lines, and a sagging appearance. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, tissues of the face and body can be remodeled to reveal a more radiant and youthful appearance.
How does it work?
Morpheus8 combines needling, radiofrequency technology, and fractionated treatments to address various skin problems, such as laxity, wrinkles, and unwanted fat. Tiny needles penetrate the skin, creating thousands of micro-channels and stimulating the deeper layers of the skin, resulting in collagen production. Radiofrequency simultaneously heats the surrounding tissues, prompting remodeling that thickens and tightens the skin.
Why Morpheus8 vs. other microneedling treatments?
What sets Morpheus8 apart from other RF Needling treatments is the depth of the needles, with depths of 4mm on the face and 8mm on the body! Morpheus8 has the deepest heat profile compared to any other device on the market. It is the only device that can destroy fat under the skin and simultaneously tighten the surrounding tissues. By contouring and remodeling the subdermal layers, Morpheus8 offers unparalleled results!
Who is a candidate for Morpheus8?
Anyone looking to correct, reduce, or prevent the signs of aging may be a candidate for Morpheus8. The benefit of Morpheus8’s colorblind technology is that it can be used on all skin types, and even darker skin tones can be treated.
What can Morpheus8 treat?
Morpheus8 is a versatile treatment that can address any of the following concerns:
- Unwanted fat below the chin or on the body
- Jowls at the jawline
- Skin laxity
- Skin texture such as acne scarring, wrinkles, and cellulite
- Stretch marks
- Surgical scars
Which areas can be treated?
Morpheus8 can be used on any area of the body that can benefit from resurfacing and subdermal renewal. Morpheus8 has customizable device tips, meaning the treatment can be performed on large, easily accessible areas and smaller, more delicate areas such as the eyelids. The most commonly treated areas include the face, eyes, neck, abdomen, thighs, legs, and buttocks.
How many sessions are recommended?
Morpheus8 begins to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin immediately after the first treatment. The number of treatments depends on the extent of improvement desired by the patient. Treatment times and frequency are determined by your provider and are specific to each patient. Treatment series can range from 2-6 treatments every 4-6 weeks until the series is complete, with 1-2 maintenance treatments annually.
How quickly will I see results?
Results can be seen days after your first treatment, with the most noticeable results appearing around weeks 3-4 following each treatment. Improvements continue up to six months after treatment as the collagen and elastin build.
Is Morpheus8 painful?
To ensure your comfort, we apply a strong topical numbing cream one hour prior to your procedure. We also have Pro-Nox Nitrous Oxide available with each treatment. Discomfort varies from patient to patient. However, any discomfort felt during the treatment is often very tolerable.
Downtime and recovery:
Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive treatment penetrating the deeper layers of the skin, so recovery and downtime are minimal. The patient’s skin will be very red and feel hot, like a sunburn, on the day of treatment. Most of the redness subsides within the first 24 hours. Other side effects that may occur include swelling and bruising. These side effects can vary depending on which areas are treated.
Is there any post-procedural care needed?
Each Morpheus Series includes Alastin Skin Regenerating Nectar. This post-procedure serum will be applied to the treated areas two times daily for two weeks following each treatment. We also recommend broad-spectrum sunscreen and medical-grade skincare following treatments.
