Morpheus8 is a revolutionary cosmetic treatment that combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with microneedling to improve skin texture and reduce the signs of aging. The Morpheus8 treatment is a non-invasive alternative to traditional facelifts and other invasive procedures. Read below to find out what Morpheus8 is, how it works, the benefits of the treatment, and what to expect during and after the procedure.
Morpheus8 is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses a combination of RF energy and microneedling to stimulate collagen production, tighten the skin, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This procedure is non-surgical and minimally invasive, making it an excellent option for those who want to rejuvenate their skin without undergoing invasive surgery.
During the Morpheus8 treatment, a hand-held device is used to deliver RF energy into the skin’s deeper layers.
This energy stimulates the production of collagen, which is the protein that gives our skin its elasticity and firmness.
The microneedles create tiny punctures in the skin, allowing the RF energy to penetrate deeper into the skin layers.
The combination of RF energy and microneedling results in the production of new collagen, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and tightens the skin. The Morpheus8 treatment can be customized to target specific areas of the face and body, making it an effective treatment for a range of concerns, including acne scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone.
The Morpheus8 treatment offers numerous benefits, including:
1. Non-invasive: Morpheus8 is a non-surgical treatment that does not require incisions or downtime. The procedure is minimally invasive, making it an excellent option for those who want to rejuvenate their skin without undergoing invasive surgery.
2. Customizable: The Morpheus treatment can be customized to target specific areas of concern, making it a versatile treatment that can address a range of skin concerns.
3. Stimulates collagen production: The RF energy and micro needling work together to stimulate collagen production, which improves skin texture and tightness.
4. Improves skin tone and texture: The Morpheus8 treatment can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
Before the procedure, the patient will be given a local anaesthetic to numb the treatment area. The Morpheus8 device is then used to deliver RF energy and micro needling to the skin. The procedure typically takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
After the treatment, the skin may be red and slightly swollen, similar to a sunburn. However, these symptoms typically subside within a few days.
Patients can return to their regular activities immediately after the procedure, as there is no downtime required.
It is recommended that patients avoid direct sun exposure and use sunscreen to protect their skin after the procedure.
Most patients will see improvement in their skin’s texture and tightness within a few weeks, with optimal results appearing 3-6 months after the Morpheus treatment.
After being treated with Morpheus8, you can expect a minimal recovery period. You may experience redness around the treated area for 1-2 days and can resume normal activities after 48 hours. Makeup can also be worn on the second day after the procedure. To minimise any side effects, it’s essential to keep your skin hydrated and protected using skincare products that have a high SPF rating for the first week after treatment.
The amount of recommended sessions is determined by your skincare goals and what works best for you, which will be advised by your practitioner. They will also advise you on treatment times and frequency that are tailored specifically for you as a patient, for a truly personalised treatment plan.
You can expect results within a few days. The most significant results will appear after three weeks, with improvements continuing for up to three months after treatment.
Fractioned Radiofrequency (RF) Energy is a scientifically proven method to remodel and build collagen. Unlike other procedures it isn’t invasive, using micro pins to renew the deeper layers of the skin resulting in a minimal recovery period.
The advantage of Morpheus8 treatments over other options is that they can be used on all skin types, allowing any skin tone to be treated effectively and safely.
Yes! Morpheus8 can be used in the same session or a few days after different treatments. Morpheus8 can also be combined with other skin treatments or injectables for improved results.
Makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after receiving treatment. Patients should also expect to see small micro lesions a few days after and some redness depending on the treatment areas.
Patients should moisturise the treated area and avoid direct sun exposure. It’s also recommended that patients use broad-spectrum sunscreen daily.
