Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that combines two powerful technologies: microneedling and radio frequency (RF) energy. This innovative approach effectively tightens the skin, reduces wrinkles, and remodels facial contours with minimal downtime.
How Does Morpheus8 Work?
Microneedling creates tiny controlled injuries reaching down into skin layers prompting the body’s natural healing process, which responds with increased collagen and elastin production; these two vital proteins contribute to maintaining skin elasticity and firmness.
Radio frequency energy (RF) delivered below the skin surface also initiates an increase of collagen and elastin with the added benefit of tightening and remodeling underlying skin structure. Morpheus8 is a game-changing device that combines techniques of the two for synergistic next-level efficacy, by delivering RF energy through the ultrafine needles reaching deeper skin layers.
Ideal Candidates for Morpheus8
Morpheus8 is suitable for both men and women who have mild to moderate skin laxity and texture concerns and would prefer an alternative solution to a surgical procedure. Morpheus8 is known for its minimal downtime, making it an attractive option for those with busy lifestyles.
Candidates should be in good overall health and while Morpheus8 can offer impressive results, it’s important to have realistic expectations. Some patients, depending on their aesthetic goals and individual factors, may need more than one treatment.
The Morpheus8 Procedure
Morpheus8 begins with the application of a topical numbing cream to ensure patient comfort. Once the targeted area is adequately numbed, Dr. Frank moves the handpiece with ultrafine microneedles strategically to maximize delivery and symmetrical application. Dr. Frank has over two decades of dedicated focus on the mastery of minimally invasive procedures and how to improve them. On average the treatment lasts two hours or less.
Recovery and Results
After Morpheus8 some swelling and mild bruising or redness may occur, these conditions are resolved in a couple of days to a week depending on the extent of treatment. Patients may resume activities immediately following treatment but should avoid strenuous physical activity in the first week of treatment to help with swelling.
Some patients experience more noticeable improvements than others beginning with the day of the procedure, patience is key. A vital aspect of Morpheus8’s efficacy is the regenerative healing below the skin surface that is just getting started as the procedure concludes. As increased collagen and elastin production continue for up to six months, so do the emerging results.
