Morpheus8 Microneedling Fractional Treatment for Skin Rejuvenation
Morpheus8 is a microneedling device that is unlike any other that currently exists. It utilizes radiofrequency energy to remodel and contour the face and body via subdermal adipose remodeling. This fractional treatment penetrates deep into the skin and fat for a smoother and sleeker appearance.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a device that combines microneedling with radiofrequency technology for fractional resurfacing that stimulates collagen production. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks will reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process.
Because the needles are coated and the radiofrequency energy comes out from the very tip of the needles, there is little to no damage to the dermis and this procedure provides an extremely uniform effect.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Morpheus8 can be used on any areas that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal. Areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles or discoloration are suitable for treatment. Morpheus8 is effective in the treatment of acne scars as well as active acne. The most commonly treated areas include the face and neck, as well as the abdomen which is beneficial for tightening loose skin with underlying fatty tissue.
How Many Treatments Will I need?
The number of treatments depends on settings used and how the skin responds to each treatment. Those with darker skin require lower settings and therefore may need more treatments. Patients tolerating higher setting may need fewer. Depending on your Morpheus8 treatment regime you can expect to have between 2-5 sessions 1-3 months apart.
How Quickly Will I See 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?
Fractionated RF energy is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen and fat. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with almost no downtime.
Can Anyone Use Morpheus8?
The benefit of Morpheus8’s color blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types. The unique properties allow even darker tones to be treated with little risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is common with other resurfacing methods.
What Is the Benefit of RF Energy?
Like any form of energy, RF has the capacity to produce heat. Heating the skin’s deeper layers induces new collagen and elastin production and encourages cell turnover, helping loose skin become firmer, thicker and more youthful-looking.
An advantage of using RF to heat tissues, as opposed to lasers (which use higher-frequency light waves), is that the lower frequency of RF can safely penetrate to a deeper level, helping to improve skin tone and structure, even lifting tissues. Lasers for the most part work to improve the skin’s surface. Moreover, RF can safely treat more patients with different skin tones without risking permanent discoloration
When Can I put Make-up On After Treatment?
Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro lesions (small dots in the skin) a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week depending on treatment parameters.
What Kind of Post Procedure Care Is Required?
Patients should moisturize the treatment area with bland cream such as Aquaphor or Vaniply and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing their future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process.
