What is Mprpheus8?
Morpheus8 combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to rejuvenate and tighten the skin. It is a non-surgical procedure that targets deep layers of the skin to improve texture, tone, and overall appearance. The Morppheus8 creates tiny microchannels in the skin, which deliver RF energy to the underlying layers. the RF energy stimulates collagen and elastin production, promoting skin firmness and elasticity. This process helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and stretch marks. Morpheus8 is a versatile treatment that can be used on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, abdomen, thighs, and arms. It is suitable for all skin types and can address a range of skin concerns, such as sagging skin, uneven texture, and hyperpigmentation. The procedure is generally well tolerated, and patients may experience mild redness, swelling, or bruising, which typically subside within afew days. Results gradually improve overtime with optimal outcome visible after several weeks.
Many other professional devices work the same way, but Morpheus8 is a bit different in that it (1) penetrates the skin deeper than most others, and (2) has a unique “burst” mode that allows it to treat multiple skin layers at once for a more robust collagen stimulation. Translation: It’s one of the most powerful RF microneedling treatments on the market, and most dermatologists I’ve spoken with say it yields some of the most impressive results.
What are the benefits of Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 has a ton of benefits for skin on both the face and neck and body—and it’s all thanks to its ability to trigger your collagen and elastin production. Some of the biggest benefits patients experience after a Morpheus8 treatment include:
- Smoother skin texture with smaller-looking pores
- A reduction in acne scars and marks
- Less noticeable fines lines and wrinkles
- A more “snatched” jawline and more sculpted cheekbones
- Skin that looks firmer, tighter, and lifted
How long do Morpheus8 results last?
Although the effects of Morpheus8 are not permanent, the results of a treatment typically last one year or more. Everyone’s capacity to simulate collagen is different and one’s lifestyle choices will affect the ultimate duration.
It’s also worth nothing that the results aren’t instant (collagen doesn’t grow overnight). Skin usually gets a nice glow right after the treatment, but any smoothing or tightening effects takes a month later. So if you’re trying Morpheus8 to improve your skin before a big event, it is recommend to schedule your appointment about six weeks in advance.
How long is a Morpheus8 session?
Morpheus8 typically takes about 60- 90 minutes. Numbing cream on face usually takes about 45 minutes, and then the treatment itself takes about 25 minutes.
Once you are totally numbed, we wipe your face clean and passed the device over your entire face two times using quick stamping motion. We usually do a few more quick stamps on areas that of high concern to help further smooth and tighten. Once finished, we apply healing cream from our Epionce recover kit on your face. You will take the remainder of the epionce recover kit home and use for the next 4 days to promote heal.
How do you heal from Morpheus8?
Despite being such a powerful treatment, the downtime after my Morpheus8 treatment was relatively minimal. On day one, my skin was very red and tender for an hour post-treatment, and then faded to a pink color. On days two through four my skin was still pink and dry in some spots and I had a few pin-point bleeding marks, but nothing my tinted sunscreen couldn’t camouflage. By day five, my skin was completely back to normal. If you’re concerned about the downtime, I would book your treatment for Friday after work and then lay low over the weekend.
