Morpheus 8 The Fountain of Youth
Aging robs the skin of its natural ability to produce collagen and elastin. These powerful skin proteins help prevent wrinkles, puffiness, and blemishes. Though it’s possible to camouflage the signs of aging with makeup and traditional cosmetic procedures, the results are often very short-lived, subject to trial and error, and not as effective. Morpheus 8 is a revolutionary new FDA-approved anti-aging treatment that minimizes the appearance of blemishes, jowls, and wrinkles to provide a smooth and youthful appearance.
In this guide, you’ll discover how Morpheus 8 transforms the skin on the face and body to eliminate the signs of aging to give you more desirable and longer lasting results—younger, clearer, and more supple skin. Great skin means better confidence and a new outlook on life!
What Is Morpheus 8?
Morpheus 8 is a safe and minimally invasive procedure that uses fractional radio frequency (RF) technology. It sends heat deeper into the skin for better efficacy and is ideal for use all over the body, unlike traditional micro-needling treatments that only work on the facial area.
How Does Morpheus 8 Work?
Micro-needling alone is an effective way to stimulate collagen and elastin production. However, the process only targets the superficial layers of the skin. By incorporating radio frequency energy, Morpheus 8 treatment penetrates deeper into the skin for higher efficacy. Morpheus 8 uses special microneedles to puncture the skin and send RF heat energy deep into the subdermal tissues to provide uniform and optimal results. The microneedling process, combined with RF heat energy, stimulates the production of more collagen and elastin. The heat energy from the fractional RF waves also shrinks fat and contours the skin, making it a more desirable and effective anti-aging treatment over other cosmetic and surgical options. The results are more powerful, desirable, and noticeable.
What Areas of the Body Does Morpheus 8 Cover?
Morpheus 8 anti-aging treatment is suitable for use on the arms, abdomen, thighs, and other areas on the body, not just the face. Multiple areas of the face and body can be treated in a single session. Besides significantly minimizing the appearance of droopy skin, lines, hyperpigmentation, and age spots, it reshapes and sculpts adipose tissue to lift and tighten the skin. Morpheus 8 has higher efficacy than traditional micro-needling anti-aging treatments because it transforms skin and fat tissue on a cellular level. It uses the body’s natural healing response and revolutionary medical technology to reduce the effects of aging.
What Are the Benefits of Morpheus 8 Microneedling?
Until recently, the anti-aging results that Morpheus 8 provides were only possible with cosmetic surgery. Morpheus 8 eliminates many of the downsides of medical anti-aging procedures. Patients have minimal downtime. There is far less discomfort, damage, and a significantly lower risk of infection and procedure failure. Radio frequency microneedling encourages the skin to rejuvenate itself.
Morpheus 8 Risks and Side Effects
Mild redness and swelling are common after each Morpheus 8 session. Some patients may experience oozing, bruising, bumps, and other mild treatment area irritations. These symptoms typically resolve within a few hours to several days, depending on the intensity and areas treated.
Is Morpheus 8 Right for Me?
All skin types and tones can benefit from Morpheus 8. The treatment is even effective in individuals with darker skin tones who are normally resistant to cosmetic anti-aging radio frequency treatments. The treatment targets areas on the face and body to erase the signs of aging and drooping. Morpheus 8 is highly ideal for individuals with the following cosmetic concerns:
• Stretch marks
• Uneven skin tone
• Sun damage
• Sagging jowls
• Under eye bags
• Enlarged pores
Infections, certain health conditions, such as pregnancy or skin disorders, and other factors can affect a person’s candidacy for the procedure. A Morpheus 8 consultation is necessary.
Is Morpheus 8 Ablative?
Morpheus 8 is an advanced anti-aging treatment that involves minimal ablation. The special needles perforate the skin to send targeted fractional RF heat waves to trigger elastin and collagen production and reduce subdermal adipose tissue.
How Long Does a Morpheus 8 Treatment Session Last?
The standard time to complete a single Morpheus 8 procedure is 30 minutes. More extensive treatments can take up to an hour or longer to complete.
What Is the Recovery Time for Morpheus 8?
Most patients can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment. There is minimal downtime. It is necessary for patients to avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 hours after their Morpheus 8 treatment. Patients should avoid direct sunlight for one week after each session. Some mild swelling, soreness, or redness is normal and often resolves within seven days. Over-the-counter meds and gentle moisturizers can reduce any discomfort.
Does Morpheus 8 Require Sedation?
Each treatment starts with the application of topical numbing ointment to minimize patient discomfort. Once desensitized, a special antibacterial cleanser is applied to the area before administering Morpheus 8 treatment. Alternative sedation options may be available.
How Long Does Morpheus 8 Last?
Most patients require a minimum of three anti-aging treatment sessions to achieve their desired results. Follow-up visits and other factors help determine how many Morpheus 8 sessions each patient requires. With proper skin hygiene, diet, and follow-up care, patients can expect their Morpheus 8 results to last several months or longer. Subsequent treatments are necessary to maintain the results after that. The aging process never stops, but periodic Morpheus 8 treatments spaced out over the course of several months can help slow it down without compromising skin health or appearance.
How Long Do Morpheus 8 Results Take to Appear?
The combination of radio frequencies and microneedling provides results much faster than other anti-aging treatments. Results are often noticeable within hours. While most patients see results immediately, it can take up to three to four weeks for the most dramatic effects of each treatment to appear. Many patients continue to see significant improvements in their appearance up to six months after their most recent Morpheus 8 session.
Is FaceTite More Expensive Than Morpheus 8?
Morpheus 8 and FaceTite are great anti-aging treatments. They both tighten skin, reduce fat, and increase collagen and elastin production. FaceTite targets the lower face and neck areas, whereas Morpheus 8 is ideal for anywhere on the face, neck, and body. Both treatments combined can provide a more dramatic and contoured look. The cost of each procedure depends on the patient’s goals, anti-aging treatment recommendations, and other factors. Both procedures are cost-effective and minimally invasive alternatives to cosmetic surgery.
