Specific building elements help to keep skin looking young. We must think about what those building blocks are to prevent or treat aging symptoms like nasolabial folds and jowls. We provide treatments at Sego Lily Spa that have been shown to penetrate far under the epidermis, where the skin’s base layer begins. One of the most cutting-edge techniques for skin tightening and toning that we have seen so far is Morpheus8.
Morpheus8 is an advanced, FDA-approved, non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure. The treatment combines microneedles with radiofrequency to tighten, brighten, and minimize puffiness around the eyes and cheeks. Everyone has a lot of questions because this technology is so popular now. Here’s everything you need to know about Morpheus8.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 may be the solution for you if you’re searching for an alternative to surgery or laser treatments and are concerned by wrinkles, minor to severe skin laxity, uneven skin pigmentation, or acne scars.
An FDA-approved skin treatment technique called Morpheus8 combines two established technologies:
- Radiofrequency (RF) treatment — tightens loose skin and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles by applying regulated heat.
- Microneedling — which firms, evens up skin tone, minimizes scars and wrinkles, and pricks the skin with tiny needles to stimulate the formation of new tissue
While microneedling occurs on the skin’s surface during a Morpheus8 treatment, radiofrequency (RF) radiation is emitted into the skin’s deeper layers, integrating the benefits of the two technologies. Morpheus8 increases the production of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin—proteins and substances that keep the epidermis youthful and healthy in the middle and lower layers of the skin.
Morpheus8 achieves higher outcomes than either RF or microneedling treatments alone since it penetrates deeper layers of the skin. The chance of harming the skin’s surface or causing a hyperpigmentation reaction is also reduced when RF is applied directly to the middle and lower layers of the skin, which can be a disadvantage of traditional skin resurfacing procedures.
What can Morpheus8 treat?
The Morpheus8 device is used to do RF microneedling on a wide range of individuals of all ages. This innovative treatment may lessen the look of:
- scars on the face and body
- issues with the skin’s texture, such as enlarged pores
- acne scarring
- Face jowls and sagging
- tiny lines and wrinkles
- sun damage
However, it’s crucial to remember that each person’s skin is unique, so the recommended course of treatment for your case will rely on your medical history, physical characteristics, and aesthetic needs.
For those who struggle with the following, Morpheus8 might not be the best option:
- Rosacea (blushing or visible blood vessels on the face)
- Active acne
- lesions or open wounds
- Simplex herpes
- Metal allergies
- People who had recent surgical operations or cosmetic surgeries and the skin is recovering
- sunburned skin
What can Morpheus8 do to your skin?
Although Morpheus8 is new, it combines fractional RF energy and microneedling, two well-established anti-aging techniques, into a single straightforward procedure.
Morpheus8 can do the following to your skin:
- tighten sagging or loose skin
- make the skin more flexible
- minimize wrinkles and fine lines
- smooth skin that has become rough
- even skin tone and lighten discolored spots
- minimize irrational surface fat deposition
- help skin appear more youthful and vibrant
- lessen stretch marks
- decrease acne-related scars
- reducing the visibility of scar tissue
Morpheus8 may utilize almost every part of the body. The face, neck, and abdomen are the most specific areas it is used to treat.
The fact that Morpheus8 works effectively with all skin tones and poses no danger of hyperpigmentation is one of its most notable advantages. While specific cosmetic procedures are exclusively advised for those with a lighter complexion, Morpheus8 is effective on fair and dark skin tones.
That is a lengthy list of possible advantages of a quick and straightforward procedure that nearly never results in downtime. Following the first day or two after a treatment, whatever slight redness you may have may typically be covered with makeup.
Why is Morpheus8 more effective compared to other microneedling treatments?
We have yet to see a microneedling procedure like Morpheus8. During a typical microneedling process, the skin is stroked by an applicator covered in tiny needles. Automated microneedles may move vertically when the handpiece passes over the epidermis to “stamp” the skin. The applicator’s needles penetrate the skin around 2mm deep. A specialist may administer a nourishing serum, such as platelet-rich plasma or a vitamin mixture, after microneedling to target a specific issue.
Because its needles go down 4mm, Morpheus8 stands out right away. The stimulation of change within the skin’s underlying structure makes this noteworthy. Adding radiofrequency, the energy that gently warms subdermal adipose tissue for deeper tightening and toning results in additional advantages.
What is the recovery looks like?
After their treatment, patients can resume their regular daily activities. Ice packs make it simple to manage the minor swelling and bruising associated with the process. After their procedure, patients could notice that their faces felt tight. This sensation, if it exists, will vanish after a few days. A Morpheus8 treatment’s overall recovery time is frequently shorter than an hour.
After their treatment, patients will discover that their face looks significantly better. Collagen tightens throughout the healing process, and patients see changes in their face look. Their face is raised, and lax regions are given volume. Additionally, skin quality gets better. Patients will see their actual outcomes in six short weeks after their treatment.
How many Morpheus8 sessions do you need?
Results with Morpheus8 are seen right away. However, the total effectiveness of the procedure is often seen after about three weeks.
Long-term improvement can be noticed after three months, depending on how many sessions you have. One to three treatments per month are necessary for the most outstanding outcomes. However, this also depends on the size of the treatment region and the state of the skin.
Please keep in mind, nevertheless, that Morpheus8’s effects are short-lasting. They typically endure between 12 and 18 months. As with all skincare procedures, Morpheus8 only keeps the skin’s elasticity and health; it does not stop the natural aging process.
Maintain a consistent skincare practice that includes daily SPF 30 sunscreen to extend the treatment’s efficacy. Additionally, make regular maintenance appointments.
