Morpheus8 is a new non-surgical, microneedling treatment developed to aid in tissue and collagen remodeling in order to improve your skin’s appearance. Tightened skin feels firmer, irregularities can be smoothed, and the dimples of cellulite are reduced, giving the face, neck and body a more youthful appearance.
The Morpheus8 Treatment
Treatments are performed using a radio frequency device with charges delivered through custom-sized micro-pins to just below the skin’s surface. The amount of radiofrequency can be customized as well to offer optimal results. Treatment time takes approximately 1 ½ hours.
Neither anesthesia nor IV sedation is required, as a Morpheus8 treatment offers no significant discomfort during the procedure, however, a topical numbing cream is generally used in the areas designated for treatment.
Downtime and Recovery
There is minimal downtime following Morpheus8 treatments. Normal activities can be resumed directly following treatment.
Immediately after the procedure, your skin will look and feel like you’ve been sunburned—warmer and tighter than usual. This redness generally lasts between one and three days, but can last longer with an aggressive treatment.
Crusting and peeling will also occur for 3 to 7 days after treatment. To aid your healing process, avoid exercise or strenuous activity for 24 hours post-treatment, and do not apply makeup until 48 hours after your procedure. Throughout this time, apply and re-apply sunscreen and avoid intentional or direct sunlight. Some people may also experience minimal swelling or bruising, but this will abate in just a couple of days.
Multiple sessions of Morpheus8 treatments are generally recommended to achieve the best outcome. Your visit schedule will be determined by your cosmetic goals, but on average, we recommend 3 to 6 sessions, scheduled 4 to 6 weeks apart.
