Morpheus8 is one of our favorite treatments we do because the results we can get for our patients are unmatched. Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive, in-office treatment that combines microneedling and radiofrequency technology to stimulate collagen production in deep layers of the skin. The process works by triggering your body’s natural healing response to promote collagen and elastin – thereby tightening and “remodeling” your skin! Morpheus8 also has the ability to probe deeper into the skin than any other micro-needling device on the market.
What areas can be treated?
Morpheus8 is most commonly used on the lower face and neck, however it also works on areas of the body where wrinkles, lax skin, scarring, stretch marks, or discoloration are present. This can include the hands, arms, legs, abdomen, and buttocks.
What makes an ideal candidate?
A good candidate for Morpheus8 are people who are looking to improve common skin conditions and desire more firmness and elasticity in the skin. The Morpheus8 treatment is good for all skin types, even darker skin types.
How do I prepare for my Morpheus8 treatment?
To prepare for your Morphues8 treatment, you should avoid anything that can cause skin irritation such as direct sun exposure. Additionally, you should stop the use of irritant topical products like retinol or tretinoin 2-3 days before your treatment.
What are the benefits of Morpheus8?
In short, once you finish your treatment protocol, you’ll end up with more radiant,, youthful-looking skin. Some common conditions we treat with Morpheus8 include acne, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, reducing the appearance of scars and stretchmarks, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and texture.
What is the Morpheus8 downtime?
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 like EltaMD to avoid hyperpigmentation after 2-3 days.
How many treatments are necessary?
Depending on your skin condition and what area is being treated, the average number of treatments recommended is between 3 and 4 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Morpheus8 results are long-lasting, but nothing is permanent so you may need to consider a yearly maintenance treatment for best results.
