What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is an innovative anti-aging treatment that can resolve some of the most common complexion issues of both men and women. It combines traditional microneedling techniques with the benefits of radiofrequency energy to create skin that looks more youthful and healthier.
The Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves making tiny punctures in the skin to treat certain cosmetic issues. When these microscopic punctures are made in the skin, they stimulate a healing response that generates new skin cells.
The production of new skin cells can resolve the following aesthetic issues:
- Dark age spots
- Sun damage
- Stretch marks
- Uneven skin texture
- Acne scarring
- Active acne blemishes
- Fine lines
- Sagging skin
- Enlarged pores
- Dull skin
While the benefits of microneedling are numerous, Morpheus8 intensifies these benefits by adding radiofrequency thermal energy to the process. When thermal energy is delivered deep into the skin in conjunction with microneedling, it can boost collagen production, leading to a more youthful appearance.
How Is Morpheus8 Wrinkle Treatment Performed?
Before you have a Morpheus8 treatment, it’s helpful to know how the procedure is performed. Below is a breakdown of the complete Morpheus8 process from beginning to end.
On the day of your Morpheus8 treatment, wash your face with a gentle cleanser. Do not apply anything topical to the skin. This includes makeup, sunscreen, serums, moisturizers, or medication. Your skin should be bare when you arrive for your session.
Morpheus8 wrinkle treatment begins with the application of a topical numbing cream. It takes about 20 minutes for this to take full effect. Once your facial skin is completely numb, one of our cosmetic providers will begin your treatment.
During a Morpheus8 procedure, a handheld device is used to make microscopic punctures in the skin while emitting radiofrequency energy. These two techniques work directly with your skin’s cells to provide healing, anti-aging, and skin tightening effects. The entire Morpheus8 session can last anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes.
This procedure is an outpatient treatment, which means that you do not have to be monitored or remain at the clinic when it is finished. After your Morpheus8 treatment is complete, you will be able to return home and resume your normal activity. There is no recovery process or downtime necessary.
Frequently Asked Questions About Morpheus8 Anti-Aging Treatment
If you have never received Morpheus8 treatment, you may have questions or concerns about the procedure. The following are some of the most common questions new patients have about this treatment.
Do I Need a Consultation for Morpheus8?
Before having a Morpheus8 wrinkle treatment, you must speak to one of our cosmetic medicine providers. This is to ensure that Morpheus8 is the best procedure to meet your needs.
Everyone’s skin is unique and has different concerns. We need to examine your complexion and assess any issues you may have to confirm that this is the right course of treatment. If not, we will advise you on any alternative options.
Should I Have Multiple Morpheus8 Sessions?
Many patients notice an improvement in their skin after just one Morpheus8 session, but you will need to have numerous sessions to see optimal results. For most people, this is about three sessions, spaced several weeks apart.
When Will I See the Outcome of My Morpheus8 Session?
Most patients see a change in their skin in the days following their Morpheus8 treatment. These results will continue to develop in the weeks following your session as the skin heals and new skin cells begin to develop.
Additional treatments will help intensify these results. Once you have completed the initial round of treatments, your skin should appear significantly firmer, smoother, and more vibrant.
How Long Will My Morpheus8 Results Last?
The duration of results will vary from patient to patient. The results of your Morpheus8 procedure can last anywhere from three to six months, depending on the concerns that are being addressed. Patients who seek Morpheus8 treatment for stretch marks or scarring sometimes see permanent outcomes.
You will likely see the benefits of increased collagen production for much longer than that. To maintain the results of your treatment, you can seek additional Morpheus8 treatments in the future.
Is There Anything I Should Avoid After My Treatment?
After your Morpheus8 treatment, you should avoid direct and prolonged sun exposure to the skin. This is because the facial skin can be sensitive for a short period of time. Allow at least four weeks for your skin to settle before exposing it to direct sunlight for extended periods.
