We all lead busy lives these days, and most of us just don’t have time to thoroughly research the numerous medical treatments available to help restore the youthful features of our skin. There are surgical and non-surgical options available that help with almost any skin problem.
Most of us shy away from traditional surgical treatments because of the recovery time and how that affects our full schedule. Quickly searching the internet for alternative procedures is daunting because there are so many “new and improved” skincare therapies available. After reviewing some of the non-invasive medical treatments being discussed online, there is one product that stands out as a suitable therapeutic option for a busy patient who can’t afford a lot of recovery time. It’s a treatment called Morpheus8 microneedling.
Morpheus8 offers great benefits: non-invasive, minimal or no downtime, and long-lasting results. This skin treatment can tighten and brighten skin in tough areas like around the chin and neck areas. It can also reduce stretch marks on your abdomen or thighs. Morpheus8 targets many other skin conditions and is effective on all types of natural skin pigmentations. The versatile function of Morpheus8 makes it a great choice if you’re looking to target multiple areas and achieve great skincare results with the least amount of interruption to your life.
In this blog, we’re going to introduce you to Morpheus8 Microneedling and then answer the top 7 questions about how this anti-aging treatment can fit into your active lifestyle.
What is Morpheus8 Microneedling?
Morpheus8 Microneedling uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to treat the skin. Specifically, it’s a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD) that uses RF to gently heat targeted skin. The device allows the Morpheus8 microneedles to penetrate the skin at different depths. This method creates microscopic lesions, which immediately stimulate your skin to grow new collagen and strengthen elastin leading to firmer skin.
The Morpheus8 is a maneuverable workstation that comes with two interchangeable hand-held devices that deliver treatment to specific regions of your face or to larger areas of your body. One device contains numerous interchangeable microneedling tips that can target smaller areas and the other attachable device focuses on delivering 3D burst technology to areas of the body that requires wide or deeper epidermis treatment. The programable settings can be adjusted to meet all skin types and conditions. The innovative and modular Morpheus8 effectively treats acne scars, pigmentation, age wrinkles, and other skin issues. Most importantly, Morpheus8 Microneedling delivers longer lasting results that is usually noticeable after your first treatment.
Top Morpheus8 Questions
Now that you have an idea of how Morpheus8 Microneedling works, let’s answer the top 7 questions about this treatment. It’s a great option as a non-surgical treatment to restore beautiful and radiant skin, so let’s see how Morpheus8 can fit into your busy lifestyle.
What are the Benefits of Morpheus8?
You will feel immediate results after the short treatment session, which is non-invasive and requires no downtime. A Morpheus8 session typically takes between 15 to 60 minutes in an in-office setting. After the procedure, you will notice that your skin feels tighter and smoother. With normal UV Sun prevention protecting your new glowing skin, you can return to your regular daily schedule immediately.
What Conditions Does Morpheus8 Treat?
The most popular are anti-aging treatments, especially for the face and neck area. However, Morpheus8 can be used on most regions of the body to treat scars caused by acne or skin trauma, such as keloids (raised scars), stretch marks, large pores, pigmentation concerns, and age spots caused by UV sun damage. Morpheus8 delivers treatment deeper into the skin when compared to traditional microneedling methods. It can treat a wide range of skin problems, so if you have a specific skin issue, contact a cosmetic expert with specialized training in RF microneedling to see how Morpheus8 can help you.
How Long Before I See Results from Morpheus8?
You will start to notice immediate improvements after your first treatment with Morpheus8. Your skin will feel much firmer and smoother, and you might see an improvement in your overall complexion—a glowing skin tone. You will also notice a visible reduction of existing acne or stretch mark scars in the treated area. Depending on the skin condition you are treating, we recommend scheduling a follow-up Morpheus8 treatment session every 4 to 6 weeks for a total of 3 or 4 visits. A Morpheus8 treatment plan ensures optimum, lasting results.
What Makes Morpheus8 Different from Traditional Microneedling?
Morpheus8 is an advanced version of microneedling; it combines the technology of radiofrequency with microneedling. Instead of using a device containing microneedles that is rolled over your skin, the Morpheus8 device uses RF-induced microneedles to make tiny punctures in your skin in more specific, pinpointed areas. Depending on the skin condition being treated, the Morpheus8 specialist can adjust microneedles on the handheld device to deliver the proper depth for customized treatment.
Traditional microneedling depends on an aesthetician’s microneedling technique and does not have the RF technology that provides a deeper therapeutic experience. The flexibility of Morpheus8 also allows successful treatment in challenging areas such as on the hands, chin, and neck regions.
Who is a Good Candidate for Morpheus8?
In general, non-surgical skin treatments such as Morpheus8 work best if you have visible signs of aging, scarring, or other skin conditions. Morpheus8 is also an excellent option for patients who are just starting to see the first signs of fine lines or wrinkles and want to start a Morpheus8 regimen to address skin concerns and prevent more invasive procedures in the future. Since Morpheus8 is a non-invasive treatment performed in our medspa, it is more suitable for a range of patients than traditional plastic surgery.
How Do I Take Care of My Skin After Morpheus8?
Right after treatment, you can go back to your regular daily schedule. You will receive immediate care instructions such as using at least 30 SPF sunscreen and being careful to protect the treated area from direct sunlight. You may experience some minor swelling or bruising but recovery time for Morpheus8 can be quick as an hour. Our highly trained Morpheus8 Microneedling practitioner will provide you with detailed care instructions and answer any of your questions and concerns before and after the procedure.
How Often Do I Need Morpheus8?
Because positive results show up quickly with Morpheus8, some patients elect to do one treatment before a big event such as a wedding or school reunion. However, we suggest scheduling 3 to 4 appointments that are spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to achieve long-term benefits from Morpheus8 Microneedling. We recommend speaking with our expert practitioner about a Morpheus8 treatment plan to help you achieve long-term, optimal results.
