Morpheus8 Boosts Collagen & Resurfaces Your Skin
At Chicago Aesthetics, our Morpheus8 treatment is suitable for all skin types, including darker skin tones. Morpheus8 technology helps treat certain skin concerns including wrinkles/skin laxity, scarring, active acne, stretchmarks, and skin discoloration.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive, in-office treatment that combines micro-needling and radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production in the deep layers of the skin. It has the ability to probe deeper into the skin than any other micro-needling device.
The Morpheus8 treatment is great for:
- Increasing the firmness and elasticity of your skin
- Reducing the risk of hyperpigmentation, improving your overall skin tone
- Reducing the appearance of scars and stretchmarks.
Morpheus8 is most commonly used on the lower face and neck. It also works on areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles, lax skin, scarring, stretchmarks, or discoloration. This can include the jawline, abdomen, and buttocks.
Additionally, there is minimal downtime to receiving this treatment. Each treatment can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and is customized to your specific concerns.
- Increase collagen production
- Safe on all skin tones
- Skin tightening benefits without surgery and minimal downtime
- Treats active acne and acne scars
- Lifts and tones for younger looking skin
Before your Morpheus8 treatment
To prepare for your treatment, you should avoid skin irritation such as direct sun exposure, sunbathing, or tanning because you will feel increased heat sensation. Additionally, you should:
- Stop the use of irritant topical products 2-3 days before your treatment. This includes retinol and tretinoin.
- Arrive to your appointment with clean skin (no makeup, lotions, perfume, jewelry, or other skin products on the area being treated).
- Be aware that if you have a pacemaker or any metal in your body near the treatment area, you are not a candidate for this treatment.
Morpheus8 can safely treat most areas of the body with the most common areas being:
- Face & Neck
- Thighs & Legs
For best results, 1-3 sessions are recommended depending on the severity of laxity and your skin quality. Morpheus8 is expected to last one year, but like any cosmetic procedure, your skin will always be better than before even if you decide not to do the yearly maintenance.
Each treatment can take anywhere from 15-45 minutes and is customized to your specific concerns.
This treatment is relatively painless, however due to the micro-needling, you may feel pressure and slight discomfort during the procedure.
This treatment may become a little uncomfortable if used at a higher setting, but a topical numbing cream and cooling device will be provided to help with any discomfort during your treatment.
Morpheus8 has minimal downtime following your treatment. You may experience redness, swelling, or bruising for about 2-7 days.
Following your Morpheus8 treatment, you can expect to leave our office with what looks like a moderate sunburn. You can expect 1-3 days of redness, swelling, and possible itchiness. During the first few days, you should avoid sun exposure to the treated area. You should also apply an Aquaphor-like ointment, keep the area clean, moisturize, and use broad-spectrum SPF to avoid hyperpigmentation after 2-3 days.
You may begin to see results within a few days of your first treatment. Skin tightening should take place within 3 weeks. Results will continue up to 3-6 months after treatment.
The cost of your Morpheus8 treatment can range between $900 to $3300 depending on what areas need treatment and how many treatments you need. We customize each treatment plan to each individual patient. At Chicago Aesthetics Med Spa, we have a variety of different treatments available that can be combined to give our patients the best results.
Our practice works with several financing options and payment plans to fit with your personal budget.
