What Is Morpheus8?
This is a revolutionary non-surgical microneedling skin treatment that uses radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production, dissolve fat pockets, and resurface skin. The procedure is used on the face, neck, and other areas on the body that has wrinkling and sagging. Because the Morpheus8 can comfortably penetrate areas at a deeper level, it often yields better results.
What Does Morpheus8 Treat?
Morpheus8 Treats a number of skin issues like:
- Sagging skin on jowls and chin line
- Lines, wrinkles, crows feet, and lower face and neck areas
- Loose skin all over the body including “bra rolls”
- Skin with sun damage
- Areas affected by acne
- Age spots and hyperpigmentation
- Stretch marks
- Large open pores
- Dull and uneven complexation
What Happens During Morpheus Treatment?
First, a numbing cream will be applied to the areas receiving treatment. The Morpheus8 non surgical device will then be applied to in a controlled manner. It will penetrate and heat up layers of the skin. The entire procedure usually lasts between 20 and 60 minutes depending on the areas needing treatment. In most cases, patients will see results in a few week, but best results will be seen in about three months.
Is Morpheus8 As Good As A Facelift
As non-invasive treatments go, the Morpheus8 is probably the next best thing to getting a facelift. While Morpheus8 will not garner the same results, the results will give your face a more radiant and youthful glow. It is the best type of treatment for people who have busy lifestyles and are either unable or uninterested in receiving more radical skin treatments.
Who Is The Best Candidate For Morpheus
The best candidates for the procedure are people in their 30s, 40s, and 50s who are experiencing mild to moderate skin sagging or wrinkling. If you are an individual who is over the age of 60, you will likely not get much benefit from Morpheus8. A facelift will probably be a better option. However, individuals who have already received a facelift can use the Morpheus8 treatments as a maintenance tool.
Long Term After Care
The Morpheus8 treatment has no downtime, and in most cases you can go back to work and resume your daily routine. It is advisable not to use makeup for 24-48 hours, but the area should be moisturized for the next 2-5 days. The only thing you may experience is a little bit of redness and swelling. Avoid direct sunlight to prevent irritation for at least a week.
Also be sure to wash your hands before you touch the treatment area and use clean pillowcases and towels to avoid infection. If for any reason you do develop pain or any other complications, call your doctor.
