What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, tissues of the face and body can be remodeled to reveal a more radiant youthful appearance.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Most patients do not experience any side effects and any skin reaction usually resolves within a few hours. Patients may find they are sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment. It is recommended to wear sunscreen and to avoid direct sunlight and tanning. Swelling and bruising to the treated area may occur but should subside within a few days.
What Areas Does Microneedling Target?
Morpheus8 can be used on any areas that can benefit from resurfacing and subdermal renewal. The most commonly treated areas include:
- Age spots
- Fine lines wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin tone
- Reduced skin electricity
- Body and face
How Many Sessions Are Recommended?
Your practitioner will recommend the optimal number of sessions to be performed based on your personal objectives. Treatment times and frequency will be specifically tailored to obtain the optimal results. Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically after three weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
What is the Benefit of Fractionated Energy?
Radiofrequency (RF) energy is a scientifically proven method to remodel and rebuild collagen. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew the deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime.
What Does Morpheus8 Feel Like?
Although Morpheus8 uses needles, it’s not usually painful. Any discomfort that is felt during the treatment is often very tolerable. Our team will also apply a numbing cream to ensure optimal comfort during your session. Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness depending on treatment parameters. Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment.
