The laser treatment that took the internet by storm is now available in our office. Morpheus8 is a non-surgical advanced needling treatment. When we age, our skin begins to lose elasticity, with wrinkles, lines, and sagging appearing. Using radiofrequency, a Morpheus8 treatment stimulates collagen production to tighten and smooth wrinkles on the face and body.REQUEST APPOINTMENT
How Does Morpheus8 Work?
Morpheus8 works by using both microneedling and radiofrequency, which will in turn stimulate the production of new collagen but also heats the skin’s deep layers to improve texture and tone. The laser uses tiny needles to create micro-wounds in the skin’s surface and once the microneedles penetrate the skin, they emit heat from radiofrequency waves that penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. The result is a tightening of the underlying fat and skin.
What Does Morpheus8 Address?
Morpheus8 penetrates deeper into the skin than any other microneedling device, causing stimulation of collagen elastin production of underlying layers of the dermis. The Morpheus8 laser has benefits for skin on not only the face, neck & body. By targeting the deeper layers on the skin, the building blocks will reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process. Morpheus8 can help lift, plump & tighten sagging skin. But that’s not all it can do!
Morpheus8 helps with:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Moderately sagging skin
- Acne scarring
- Stretch marks
- Uneven skin texture
What to Expect?
Morpheus8 can be used on any areas that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal. The benefit of Morpheus8’s color-blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types. Typically, you will need 1-3 treatment sessions to see full results. You will see visible results within a few days, but more noticeable results will show up at the 3-week mark and continue to improve for up to three months post-treatment as your skin produces new collagen and elastin. Downtime is minimal with this laser, you will experience micro lesions a few days after and slight redness for up to 1 week.
What Kind of Post-Procedure Care is Required?
Patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure for at least a week post-treatment. Makeup can be reapplied 24 hours after and it is recommended to not use any aggressive skincare. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad-spectrum sunscreen daily to prevent not only skin cancer, but minimize wrinkles and slow the aging process. Results last up to a full year and can last longer with proper at home skincare.
