Morpheus8 is a new, cutting edge device that uses super-fast microneedling with deep radio-frequency energy to remodel the contours of the face and body. Penetrating deep into the skin and fat, the Morpheus8 transforms the aging face or body into a more desired smooth and sleek appearance safely and effectively for all skin tones.
Why is Morpheus8 special?
Morpheus8 has the ability to penetrate deeper into the skin than any other microneedling device, going as deep as 4mm. Patient comfort is a major advantage of this device because of the sharper needles and tiny punctures it causesin the skin without tugging or pulling.
M8 can be used for treating wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks surgical scars and much more.
WHAT IS MORPHEUS8?
MORPHEUS8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layersof the dermis. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks will reorganize themselvesin a natural anti-aging process.
How does Morpheus8 work?
Morpheus8 is the radiofrequency micro-needling device that delivers heat using 24 pins directly into the skin.
The new Morpheus8 Body has 40 pins and the Morpheus8 Prime, for the eye area, has a smaller tip for more intricate areas.
The radiofrequency and micro-needling penetrate the skin and fat with variable programmable energy and depth. This helps induce a healing response; stimulate collagen and elastin formation; and, the destruction of fat and connective tissue.
What happens during the Morpheus8 treatment?
The procedure is performed using local anaesthetic numbing cream which is applied about 30-45 minutes beforehand. This helps numb the skin and allow for a more comfortable treatment. Your provider will then select the appropriate settings for your custom treatment, depending on the area being treated such as the face, eyes or body. Therafter your provider will apply the handpiece to the treatment area and deliver the micrneedling and radiofrequency. The whole area is treated and depending on what’s needed, some areas may need additional passes. The procedure takes about 30-45 minutes and costs about $850 per session. We usually recommend a course of at least 3 sessions to achieve the best results.
Is there any downtime with Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive procedure with very little downtime. Patients will experience some redness following the procedure which may last a couple of days. Initially the skin may feel tight and warm. We usually recommend some post-treatment skincare to help soothe and improve outcomes. Sun protection following the procedure is also important.
WHAT CAN THE MORPHEUS8 BE USED FOR?
Morpheus8 can be used on any areas that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal. Themost commonlytreated areas include the lower face and neck. Areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles,discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Everyone’s skin respondes differently, but on average you can expect to have between 1-3 sessions. (Packages are available!)
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically after three weeks the most noticeable resultsappear. 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 patient downtime.
IS MORPHEUS8 SAFE FOR EVERYONE?
The benefit of Morpheus8’s color blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types. The unique properties allow all skintones to be treated.
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF RF ENERGY?
RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalize the collagen. This treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.
CAN THIS BE USED IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?
Yes, Morpheus8 can be used in the same treatment session, or a few days after other treatments.
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 a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week afterwards depending on treatment parameters.
WHAT KIND OF POST PROCEDURE CARE IS REQUIRED?
Patients should moisturize the treated area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended to use a good, broad spectrum sunscreen every day. (In addition to reducing their future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also help protect your sensitive, post-procedure skin.)
