Morpheus8 is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that has been gaining popularity in the cosmetic industry for its ability to rejuvenate the skin and address common signs of aging. The treatment uses a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production, tighten and contour the skin, and improve its texture and tone.
The popularity of Morpheus8 can be attributed to several factors, including its effectiveness in treating a range of skin concerns, its non-surgical nature, which means there is little to no downtime associated with the treatment, and the fact that it can be customized to target specific areas of the face and body.
We will look in-depth at Morpheus8 treatments, discussing how they work, what areas of the body they can treat, their benefits and potential risks, and what to expect during treatment. By the end of this guide, you will better understand what Morpheus8 treatments entail and whether it suits your cosmetic needs.
How does Morpheus8 work?
Morpheus8 combines two technologies, microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy, to achieve its skin-rejuvenating effects. Microneedling involves using tiny needles that penetrate the skin’s surface, creating micro-wounds that stimulate the body’s natural healing response. The micro-wounds trigger the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for skin elasticity and firmness.
The RF energy, on the other hand, delivers heat to the deeper layers of the skin, where collagen is produced. The heat stimulates collagen remodeling and production, leading to skin tightening and improvement in texture and tone. The combination of microneedling and RF energy enhances the treatment’s effectiveness by addressing the skin’s surface and deeper layers.
During the Morpheus8 treatment, a handheld device delivers RF energy and creates micro-wounds on the skin’s surface. The device has multiple tiny needles that penetrate the skin at various depths, depending on the treatment area and the desired results. The needles’ depth is adjustable, allowing the provider to customize the treatment for each patient’s needs.
What are body areas treated with Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a versatile treatment that can address various skin concerns on multiple body parts.
Morpheus8 can target signs of facial aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. The treatment can be customized to address specific areas of concern, such as the forehead, cheeks, chin, and around the eyes. It can also be used to improve skin texture and tone and reduce the appearance of acne scars and other types of scarring.
One of the unique benefits of Morpheus8 is its ability to treat the neck and jowls. Other treatments often challenge these areas, but Morpheus8 can significantly improve skin tightness and contouring. The treatment can stimulate collagen production and remodeling by delivering RF energy and microneedling to these areas, leading to firmer, tighter skin.
Morpheus8 can also address sagging skin and stretch marks on the abdomen. The treatment can tighten and contour the skin, leading to a smoother, more toned appearance. The needles’ depth during the treatment can be adjusted to target the deeper layers of the skin, where collagen production is most significant, resulting in long-lasting results.
What to expect during a Morpheus8 treatment?
When you arrive for a Morpheus8 treatment, you will first have a consultation with us at Revive MD to discuss your goals and expectations for the treatment. We will also examine your skin and determine the best treatment plan.
- Preparation: Before the treatment begins, we will clean the area and apply a topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
- Treatment: Then, we begin the treatment using the Morpheus8 device to deliver the RF energy and microneedling to the treatment area. The needles will penetrate the skin at various depths, depending on the desired results, and the RF energy will be delivered to the deeper layers of the skin.
- Sensations: You may feel a slight pressure or discomfort as the needles penetrate the skin, but the topical numbing cream should minimize discomfort.
- Duration: The treatment can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and location of the treatment area.
- Aftercare: After the treatment, we will apply a soothing serum or cream to the treatment area to promote healing. Specific aftercare instructions will also be provided.
Are there any side effects?
Potential side effects of the Morpheus8 treatment can include redness, swelling, and bruising in the treatment area. These side effects are typically mild and resolve within a few days. More severe side effects, such as infection or scarring, are rare but possible. It is essential to follow your provider’s aftercare instructions carefully to minimize the risk of complications.
In rare cases, some patients may experience more severe side effects, such as burning or blistering of the skin. If you experience severe side effects or have concerns about your recovery, you may contact us immediately.
How long do the results of Morpheus8 treatments last?
The results of Morpheus8 treatments can vary depending on the patient’s needs and the treatment area. Most patients will see an improvement in skin texture, tone, and tightness within a few days to a few weeks after the treatment. The full results of the treatment can take several months to become visible, as the collagen production and remodeling process takes time.
The results of Morpheus8 treatments are long-lasting, and patients can enjoy the benefits of the treatment for up to two years or more, depending on the patient’s skin type and the area treated. However, the aging process will continue, and patients may wish to repeat the treatment to maintain their results.
How often can the treatment be repeated?
The frequency of Morpheus8 treatments depends on the patient’s needs and the treatment area. Some patients may only need one treatment to achieve their desired results, while others may require multiple treatments over several months. At Revive MD, we will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan based on your individual needs and goals.
In general, it is recommended that patients wait at least four to six weeks between Morpheus8 treatments to allow the skin to heal and for collagen production to reach its maximum potential. However, we may recommend a different timeline based on your specific needs.
It is important to remember that Morpheus8 is not a one-time solution for skin aging and other concerns. The treatment can be an effective way to address specific issues. Still, it is also essential to maintain good skin health and use other preventative measures, such as sunscreen and avoiding smoking, to minimize further damage to the skin.
