Learn more about Morpheus8 and how it can transform your skin.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 combines radiofrequency and microneedling to fractionally remodel and tighten the skin of the face, neck, and chest. Morpheus8 can also contour areas on the body and has the ability to penetrate deeper into the skin than any other microneedling RF device— at 4 mm on the face and 7 mm on the body.
How Does Morpheus8 Work?
Delivering energy deep into the skin and subcutaneous tissue, Morpheus8’s treatment begins with microneedling, which involves the use of ultra-fine, sterile needles. These needles create thousands of tiny, controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. While this might sound counterintuitive, it’s a key element of the treatment. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing response, promoting collagen production.
Radiofrequency (RF) Energy
Alongside the microneedling, Morpheus8 delivers RF energy into the skin. This RF energy is in the form of heat, and it’s precisely targeted to the deeper layers of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. This heat firms the skin and boosts collagen production for both immediate and ongoing repair. As a result, the body’s natural healing mechanism works to repair these micro-injuries, replacing damaged cells and improving the skin’s health and appearance.
Benefits of Morpheus8
The benefits of microneedling and RF with Morpheus8 include:
- Lessening the appearance of wrinkles
- Firming skin
- Reducing pores
- Treating acne
- Minimizing scars and fading stretch marks
- Treating discoloration and sun damage
- Targeting cellulite and eliminating stubborn fat cells all over the body
- Improving textural concerns or other surface irregularities on the face and body
The areas most commonly treated with Microneedling + RF are the face, neck, arms, chest, abdomen, knees, legs, and buttocks. This procedure is an excellent body remodeling option for patients who want to avoid expensive, invasive, and painful surgery. Unlike many other non-surgical skin treatments, microneedling + RF with Morpheus8 is an excellent treatment option for all skin types and tones.
Who is a candidate for Microneedling + RF?
Morpheus8 is safe for all skin types and tones, and it’s used for full-body tightening, skin resurfacing, and fat reduction in stubborn areas.
We recommend Morpheus8 to patients who are concerned about mild signs of aging that include sagging skin, scarring, wrinkles, and fine lines. Microneedling + RF can improve facial creases, festoons, small fat deposits on the face, neck, and body, mild jowls, and mild sagging on the cheeks, neck, and beneath the lower eyelids.
What Can I Expect During the Morpheus8 Procedure?
Numbing Cream to Alleviate Discomfort
To help ease discomfort, a numbing cream is applied to the treatment area. The estheticians at W Cosmetic Surgery use a specialty numbing cream specifically formulated for Morpheus8 treatments, so it’s more potent than other creams that may be used elsewhere.
In some cases, local anesthesia may be needed for deeper Morpheus8 treatments. As soon as the target area is sufficiently numb, your treatment can begin following a spot test to check for adverse reactions.
The duration of the treatment can vary depending on the size of the targeted area. Typically, Morpheus8 sessions can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, making it a convenient option for individuals with busy schedules. Gina, who leads W Cosmetic Surgery’s team of estheticians, has over 10 years of experience in microneedling and RF, and will be able to create a customized treatment plan—in combination with other treatments—for the best possible results for your skin.
One of our seasoned estheticians will use the Morpheus8 device to perform the treatment. The device combines microneedling with radiofrequency technology, precisely delivering energy to the skin’s subcutaneous tissue.
After your Morpheus8 treatment, you will most likely experience bruising—especially under the eyes—and your skin will be red. At W Cosmetic Surgery, we understand busy schedules and the need to get back to your everyday life, so we give patients the option to be treated with broadband light, or BBL, which shortens the duration of bruising.
Redness of the skin typically goes away by the next day following your Morpheus8 treatment, but you might still have tiny red marks from the needles on your skin, which can last up to five days. However, you’ll be able to wear makeup the day after your treatment.
Swelling can also last up to five days, and patients should avoid sun exposure for at least three months following treatment.
Are There Any Risks of Morpheus8?
Microneedling and RF are minimally invasive and involve minimal risks and side effects. However, you may experience swelling, bruising, redness, itching, scabbing, or bleeding following treatment. These minor issues typically resolve within a few days of treatment. To reduce the risk of bruising, 48 hours prior to treatment, discontinue the use of aspirin, ibuprofen, Excedrin, fish oil, and vitamin E.
How Much Does Morpheus8 Cost?
