Have you ever wondered what Morpheus8 is? And why is it so effective at reducing early signs of aging? Or are you curious about how many treatments you’ll need before seeing a permanent difference in your body? If so, then this blog is for you! We’ll get into everything from what the treatment involves to how long results last after a session. And don’t worry—we won’t bore you with too much scientific jargon. So let’s jump right in:
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a medical device for minimally invasive skin rejuvenation and facial contouring procedures. It uses radiofrequency energy and microneedling to stimulate collagen production and remodel the skin’s underlying tissue. The device consists of a handpiece with a matrix of tiny needles that penetrate the skin, delivering radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of the skin. The penetration depth may be adjusted to target specific layers of tissue, allowing for customized treatments.
Morpheus8 can treat various skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and skin laxity. It is often used on the face but can also be used on other areas of the body, such as the chest, neck, and hands. The treatment is typically performed under local anesthesia and has a relatively short recovery time, with most patients able to resume their normal activities within a few days.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of Morpheus8 treatments you need depends on your goals and skin condition. Most patients generally require three to six treatments about four to six weeks apart to achieve optimal results.
During your initial consultation, a medical professional will evaluate your skin and discuss your goals with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. They may also recommend additional treatments or complementary procedures to help you achieve your desired outcome.
It is important to note that the results of Morpheus8 treatments take time. It may take several weeks to see the full effects of the treatment as your body produces new collagen and remodels the underlying tissue. However, many patients report seeing improvement in their skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance after just one or two treatments.
What are the benefits of Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a painless, non-invasive procedure that permanently changes your body. There is no recovery time; you can return to work or school immediately after treatment. Specifically, the benefits of Morpheus8 include:
- Improves skin texture and tone: Morpheus8 uses radiofrequency energy and microneedling to stimulate collagen production and remodel the underlying tissue, resulting in smoother, more even-toned skin.
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles: By stimulating collagen production, Morpheus8 can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which results in a more youthful appearance.
- Minimally invasive: Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive procedure requiring only local anesthesia, meaning you can return to normal activities within a few days.
- Customizable treatment: The depth of penetration of the needles can be adjusted to target specific layers of tissue, allowing for a customized treatment plan based on your individual needs.
- Versatile: Morpheus8 can be used on various areas on the face and body, including the forehead, cheeks, jawline, and neck.
- Short recovery time: Most patients experience mild redness and swelling for a few days after the treatment, with no downtime required.
Overall, Morpheus8 offers a safe, effective, and customizable option for individuals seeking to improve the appearance of their skin and achieve a more youthful, contoured facial appearance.
Who are good candidates for Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a treatment best suited to people with healthy skin and no sun damage. In other words, if your skin looks like it has been through the wringer–if it’s dry, flaky, or wrinkled–then Morpheus8 may not suit you.
If you’re in good general health and have a positive attitude about success with this procedure, then Morpheus8 could be an option worth considering.
How long do results last with Morpheus8?
The results from Morpheus8 are permanent and last for a lifetime. If you maintain your skincare regime, which includes daily use of the Morpheus8 product line and occasional visits to our office for maintenance treatments, your results can last as long as you want.
What should I do to prepare for a Morpheus8 procedure?
- Consult with a medical professional: Schedule a consultation with a licensed and trained medical professional to discuss your goals, medical history, and any medications you are currently taking. They will also provide you with specific instructions on how to prepare for the treatment.
- Avoid blood-thinning medications: To reduce the risk of bruising and bleeding, avoid taking blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen for at least two weeks before the treatment. However, do not stop any prescribed medication without consulting with your doctor.
- Avoid alcohol and smoking: Avoid alcohol and smoking for at least 24 hours before the treatment, as they can interfere with the healing process and increase the risk of complications.
- Cleanse your skin: On the day of the treatment, cleanse your skin thoroughly and remove all makeup and skincare products.
- Wear comfortable clothing: Wear loose clothing to your appointment, as you may experience mild redness and swelling after the treatment.
- Arrange for transportation: If you are receiving sedation or anesthesia, arrange for transportation to and from the appointment, as you cannot drive immediately after the treatment.
- Follow any additional instructions: Your medical professional may provide further instructions on preparing for the treatment, such as avoiding sun exposure or using a specific skincare regimen. You must follow these instructions carefully to ensure the best possible outcome.
What are the risks following a session of Morpheus8?
Like any medical procedure, Morpheus8 carries some potential risks and side effects. However, the process is generally considered safe when performed by a licensed and trained medical professional. Some possible side effects include:
- Redness and swelling: You may experience redness and swelling in the treated area, which usually resolves within a few days.
- Mild bruising: Mild bruising may occur, especially if taking blood-thinning medications.
- Skin irritation: Some patients may experience temporary skin irritation, such as itching, burning, or dryness.
- Infection: Although rare, there is a minor disease risk at the treatment site.
- Scarring: In rare cases, scarring may occur, primarily if the treatment is not performed correctly.
- Changes in skin pigmentation: Some patients may experience changes in skin pigmentation, such as darkening or lightening.
- Numbness: You may experience temporary numbness or tingling in the treated area, which typically resolves within a few weeks.
