What is Morpheus8?
It is a non-surgical advanced needling treatment. As we age, our skin begins to lose elasticity, with wrinkles, lines, and sagging appearing. Using radiofrequency, a Morpheus8 treatment stimulates collagen production to tighten and smooth wrinkles on the face and body.
What are the benefits of Morpheus8?
- Increases collagen, elastin & skin cell production
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Improves skin tone and texture
- Fades stretch marks and acne scars
- Penetrates deep into the skin
- Safe and FDA approved
Morpheus8 is microneedling with radio frequency with adjustable fine surgical pins. At the end of these fine pins, radio frequency waves are emitted. What this means is that you get a double whammy when it comes to skin rejuvenation and tightening. The microneedles cause a controlled injury that results in formation of new collagen and elastin (the fibers responsible for skin tightening). In addition, the radio frequency wave also stimulates collagen and elastin formation.
When will I see results from a Mopheus8 treatment?
Results after a Morpheus8 procedure do take some time to develop. Within a few days of treatment, the texture and tone of the skin will show improvement and will appear tighter after approximately 3 weeks. Results are most apparent 3 months after treatment. With each day, you can expect to see subtle improvements in the quality of the skin. Morpheus8 offers consistent results and is safe for most skin types. It is best to undergo 2-3 treatments to achieve desired results.
How many treatments would I need?
It takes 28 days to make new collagen. Your skin will continue to remodel for 3 months. However, you can stack treatments as close as 1 month apart and the results will compound upon each other. You can space them apart as far as you would like without any problems. A series of 3 Morpheus8 treatments performed with each treatment spaced 6 weeks apart will give the best results.
How often do I need to come in for a maintenance treatment?
Typically clients want to come back in 12-18 months for a maintenance treatment.
Can Morpheus8 be used in combination with other treatments?
Yes. Morpheus8 can be used in conjunction with other treatments.
What is the downtime with Morpheus8?
After your Morpheus8 treatment, you can expect swelling, redness and possibly some bruising as it is causing a controlled injury to get your collagen and elastin jump started again. This will last about 3-5 days. For the first 3 days, you will be instructed on what products to apply to the treated area. After 3 days, you can apply camouflage make-up. Day 4-5 you will have slightly flakey skin. After 5-7 days, your skin is looking back to normal. You can go back to work the day after the procedure, but frequently clients who work come in on Thursday evening or Friday and recover without make-up over the weekend. By Monday, you are good to go! Those who don’t work, often have Morpheus8 performed on Monday and recover during the week, so they are ready to go on the weekend!
