No matter your age, you always want to have glowing, healthy-looking skin all the time. When your skin is smooth, wrinkle-free, blemish-free, and even-toned, you can minimize your use of makeup and feel more confident. However, with age, you may collect lines, sun spots, and acne scars.
Luckily, there are now innovative, effective, safe, and minimally-invasive solutions that offer a significant improvement to aging or damaged skin, with very little downtime. One of the revolutionary treatments available is Morpheus 8, which is a microneedling with radio frequency (RF) treatment device.
What Microneedling Is and Why Morpheus 8 is Different from Other Methods
Traditional microneedling treatments or collagen induction therapy (CIT) uses tiny needles to pierce the skin and create small channels that your body heals by creating new collagen. However, RF microneedling with Morpheus8 also applies radio frequency-generated heat to your skin, tightening it and contouring the underlying fat making it a much more powerful and results driven procedure.
The Morpheus 8 is approved by the FDA as a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device because, at its most powerful settings, it sculpts the fat under the skin. When used at lower settings, it improves texture by dilating pores, smoothing the skin, erasing scars, and tightening to give you a more youthful look.
How the Morpheus 8 Treatment Works
Morpheus 8 is used to perform the microneedling RF treatment after numbing skin with a topical numbing cream medication. The skin is then cleansed with an antibacterial formula followed by the Morpheus 8 procedure on the face or body which takes approximately 20-30 minutes.
The Morpheus 8 treatment can be combined with AccuTite, a subcutaneous radiofrequency treatment of the lower face, and for contouring and tightening the skin around the neck. A combination of the two treatments offers better results than if either of the treatments is applied independently.
Many people who receive the treatment start to see immediate results, but the optimum rejuvenation and anti-aging require at least three treatment sessions spaced 4 weeks apart.
What Skin Conditions Does Morpheus 8 Treat?
There are many people of different ages who could benefit from RF microneedling treatment using the Morpheus 8 device. This ground-breaking treatment can help to reduce the appearance of:
Body and facial scars
Skin texture issues, including dilated pores
Facial sagging and jowls
Fine wrinkles and lines
However, it is important to remember that everyone’s skin is unique, so the treatment recommendation that a doctor recommends for your case depends on your health history, anatomy, and aesthetic requirements.
Healing From Morpheus 8 Treatment
After you complete a Morpheus 8 treatment, there will be some redness and moderate swelling, as well as possible moderate bruising. However, there is a calming ointment and concealer that you may apply after treatment to reduce discomfort. In most cases, you may be able to wear your normal makeup and return to your usual activities a day after your treatment, with Morpheus 8 having a maximum downtime of 3-4 days if you have had extensive deep treatments.
