Morpheus8 is an RF microneedling treatment that uses a combination of skin needling techniques and controlled fractional radiofrequency heat energy to promote collagen production. In doing so, it can effectively and naturally target some of the most common signs of aging on both the face and the body, including loose skin.
We can use it to tighten and firm the skin on the entire face as well as different body areas, including the upper arms, knees, thighs, abdomen, buttocks, and other areas that have begun to exhibit aging. The treatment also will address uneven skin texture and tone and reduce the appearance of acne scars.
Many people suffer from different degrees of acne scarring. It is very difficult to treat acne scars with topical products, if not impossible. However, Morpheus8 treatments can significantly improve the appearance of acne scars by creating micro-injuries within the scar. The body will respond by producing more collagen. Increased collagen within the acne scar will result in increased skin volume, leading to a more uniform skin texture and less noticeable acne scars.
Textural irregularities, rough patches, and dull, dehydrated skin can make you feel less confident about your complexion. Sometimes you need more than an at-home exfoliating face wash to achieve smoother skin. Morpheus 8 treatments can give your skin the exfoliation it needs by ridding it of dead and damaged skin cells and forcing the body to grow new collagen and elastin, which results in healthier, tighter, and smoother skin.
Before you begin this treatment, we will apply a numbing cream to desensitize the nerves in your skin. This numbing cream will take about 30 minutes to activate. Once it does, you’ll be able to enjoy the treatment process without feeling the sensation of radiofrequency energy heat or the needles as they repetitively stamp your skin.
Additionally, we also offer ProNox, a self-delivery nitrous oxide system that patients can use to promote physical and emotional comfort throughout the treatment process. We can discuss these options with you in detail during your initial consultation to give you more information about your options.
Treatments can take 30 minutes or longer to complete depending on the area you want to address or the number of areas you want to treat during one session.
After your treatment, your skin may appear red, but this will subside. You may notice dry, flaking skin, but it’s important that you let it heal naturally and avoid picking at it so that you don’t interfere with your results. We’ll give you recommendations regarding which products to apply post-treatment and what activities to avoid to ensure that your skin heals quickly and you can enjoy beautiful, glowing skin.
The best results come from scheduling three treatments with four to six weeks between each. Depending on what you want to address, you may achieve your desired results after just one treatment. Once we evaluate your skin’s texture, tone, and degree of skin laxity experience, we can develop a customized treatment plan for you.
RF microneedling treatments can transform your skin and help you trade in a dull complexion for one that glows and radiates health and youth. Whether you want to address acne scars or the different signs of aging or simply improve the health and appearance of your complexion, we can give you more information about the treatment and what kind of results you can expect.
