What is Morpheus8?
In a Morpheus8 treatment, radiofrequency (RF) energy is emitted into the underlying skin while micro-needling happens on the surface, combining the effects of the two technologies. Morpheus8 stimulates collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in the middle and lower layers of the skin— proteins and compounds that help keep the skin on the surface looking young and fresh.
- tighten skin that has become lax
- improve skin elasticity
- reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- smooth skin that has become rough
- even skin tone and lighten areas of discoloration
- reduce unwanted superficial fat deposits
- make skin look younger and more radiant
- minimize stretch marks
- reduce discoloration from acne
- make scar tissue less noticeable
How does Morpheus8 work?
Morpheus8 stimulates collagen production with fractional radio frequency energy that is delivered deep into the skin through tiny pins (micro-needles). By combining radiofrequency and micro-needling, this device is able to target the deeper layers of the skin to smooth and contour areas of the face, neck and body.
What should I expect with recovery from Morpheus8?
Since this treatment is considered a non-invasive procedure, there is very minimal to no downtime. Redness is common for the first 2-3 days but can be concealed with makeup after 24 hours. There may be some pinpoint bleeding immediately following treatment. Most patients are able to return to work and resume normal activity by the next day.
When will I see results from Morpheus8?
Results after a Morpheus8 procedure do take some time to develop. Within a few days of treatment, the texture and tone of the skin will show improvement and will appear tighter after approximately 3 weeks. Results are most apparent 3 months after treatment. With each day, you can expect to see subtle improvements in the quality of the skin.
How long does it last?
It takes 28 days to form new collagen. During those first 28 days, your skin will be reorganizing and remodeling deep into the subcutaneous layer of tissue. After just one Morpheus8 treatment, you can expect to continue to see changes in your skin for up to 3 months. Once the remodeling has occurred, you may opt for a second treatment to further your improvement. Nothing will freeze you in place forever, however, it does give you a new starting point.
