Morpheus8 RF Microneedling
If you look in the mirror and don’t quite love everything you see, you could be a great candidate for Morpheus8 RF microneedling. This increasingly popular radiofrequency microneedling device combines the benefits of each individual treatment to deliver an even better set of results. Cosmetic concerns including lines/wrinkles, loose/sagging skin and age/dark spots have met their match!
We use Morpheus8 to treat both areas of the face and the body. It can be an excellent option instead of more invasive facial sculpting and body contouring procedures.
What Is Morpheus8 RF Microneedling?
Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling is a fractional system, meaning that it treats microscopic columns of the skin, while leaving surrounding tissue untouched. Why not treat all of the skin? Because by treating only these microscopic fractions, it initiates your skin’s natural healing response, along with all-important collagen production. In this way, Morpheus8 works better than a microneedling or radiofrequency treatment alone to transform the skin from within.
Morpheus8 treatments are comfortable and are safe for all skin types.
Areas of Treatment
Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling can be performed on both the face and areas of the body including your neck, back, thighs and other areas where loose, aged skin is a concern.
Am I a Candidate?
Most women and men looking to improve the appearance of aged skin – including lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, poor skin texture, sagging skin, acne scars, sun damage and even stretch marks could be good candidates for Morpheus8 microneedling.
The main reason you may need to wait to have a Morpheus8 treatment is the existence of active acne or other cuts or wounds in the treatment area. We can suggest treatments for active acne to prepare you for Morpheus8.
How Morpheus8 RF Microneedling Works
Loose, sagging skin occurs over time due to decreased collagen production. You can think of collagen as an essential building block that keeps skin tight. On its own, Microneedling triggers your body’s natural production of new collagen, to “heal” the micro-wounds made in the skin.
Morpheus8 adds to this effect by also applying radiofrequency energy to the skin. This energy heats the skin and causes it to firm up, and can further encourage collagen production. The result of the combined treatment is to restore a plump, more youthful glow to the skin.
When Can I See the Results?
Morpheus8 treatments generally require about 1 to 2 days of recovery, much less than laser peels and more aggressive chemical peels. Your skin in the treatment area may be slightly red for about a week.
Some skin rejuvenation results can be seen a few days after your treatment, but the most significant results will gradually develop as your skin heals and your body produces new collagen. Our patients usually see the maximum benefit of the treatment after about 3 to 4 weeks.
While you can see noticeable results after a single Morpheus8 treatment, generally our patients are best served by scheduling a series of 3 to 4 treatments, each spaced a few weeks apart. The cumulative effect of these treatments means you can enjoy significant skin remodeling and rejuvenation.
We will advise you to stay out of the sun while you are healing and provide guidance on when you can resume using your usual skincare products.
