Morpheus8 is a skin rejuvenation treatment used for full-body skin resurfacing, skin tightening, and fat reduction. It utilizes fractional radiofrequency energy to reach the deeper layers of the skin. Some common goals of Morpheus8 treatment are to improve skin texture, tone, and tightness, and stimulate the production of collagen to reduce wrinkles.

Scar treatment clinics use Morpheus8 to transform aging hands, face, and neck. Morpheus8 can be combined with liposuction and laser treatments to improve treatment outcomes. 

How Does Morpheus8 Work?

Morpheus8 works by stimulating collagen production in the layers of the dermis. It is used to address some skin irregularities from acne scars and skin laxity to stretch marks. Here’s how it works. 

  • The practitioner uses the micro-needling device to create micro-injuries in the upper layer of your skin, activating the body’s natural healing mechanism 
  • The microneedling device contains tiny needles that emit RF energy as they penetrate the skin, heating the deeper layers of the skin. Radiofrequency energy boosts collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are naturally occurring vital proteins that keep the skin firm and smooth 
  • The needles can be adjusted to penetrate at various depths according to the area targeted 
  • As collagen and elastin synthesis occurs, the skin structure improves 

Is Morpheus8 Safe?

When performed by an expert, Morpheus8 is completely safe. Any discomfort during a Morpheus8 treatment can be managed using topical numbing agents. After treatment, you may experience a burning sensation (it may feel like a sunburn). Any discomfort usually subsides within a few days after treatment. 

How Many Morpheus8 Treatments Do I Need?

Most individuals will need three or four sessions, spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. The exact number of Morpheus8 treatments required depends on treatment goals and the skin condition being addressed. Individuals who want to get rid of deep wrinkles or acne scars may need more sessions than others. 

Benefits of Morpheus8 

Struggling with a skin problem? Here are some compelling reasons to give Morpheus8 a try. 

Collagen Production

The cosmetic procedure targets the deeper layers of the skin to boost collagen production. Collagen is a protein that reduces wrinkles and hydrates the skin, improving its texture.

Skin Tightening

Morpheus8 effectively tightens sagging skin around the jaw, neck, and abdomen. No wonder it is the first choice of people who want to achieve a sculpted look without going under the knife.

Improves Skin Texture

Morpheus8 makes scars, acne scars, and pores less visible to improve overall skin texture. By boosting collagen production, the treatment makes the skin appear smoother, vibrant, and youthful. 

Versatility

One of the top benefits of Morpheus8 is that it can be used to treat areas on many parts of the body (including the chest, neck, abdomen, back, and waist) not just the face. 

Minimizes Acne Scarring

Morpheus8 can diminish the appearance of acne by shrinking or shutting down the oil glands under the skin, preventing it from producing excess oil. It is also an effective treatment for acne scars that form after acne goes away. 

Reduces the Appearance of Stretch Marks

Both men and women can get unsightly stretch marks on different parts of their body including their abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. Morpheus8 breaks up scar tissue, making stretch marks less prominent. 

Safe for all Skin Types

The treatment is safe for almost all skin tone types including darker skin tone, which is susceptible to hyperpigmentation due to its high melanin content. 

No Downtime

Because Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive treatment, patients can return to their everyday life after treatment. To assist the healing process, patients must avoid exercising for 24 hours after treatment and applying makeup until 48 hours after the procedure. They should apply sunscreen before going outside, limit sun exposure, and avoid scrubbing the treated area. 

Two to three hours after a Morpheus8 treatment, wash the treated area with a soothing cleanser or face wash and lukewarm water.
