What is Morpheus8 RF Microneedling?
Morpheus8 RF Microneedling is an advanced microneedling treatment that combines the benefits of radiofrequency technology with the traditional microneedling procedure. This is done with the unique Morpheus8 device. The microneedling technique creates small punctures in the skin, triggering a healing response from the body. This results in the creation of collagen, which is quickly used to heal and subsequently rejuvenate the skin in the affected area. With these benefits, microneedling can be used to address wrinkles, lines, discoloration, scarring and acne scarring. Morpheus8 adds radiofrequency energy to this process, which further stimulates collagen production and simultaneously triggers the contraction of skin tissue. This means with Morpheus8 RF microneedling, you can achieve better results and faster than with a traditional microneedling treatment.
What are the Benefits of Morpheus8 RF Microneedling?
- Renews skin color and tightness
- Produces a more youthful appearance
- Little downtime
- Optimal results in just a few treatments
Who is a Good Candidate for Morpheus8 RF Microneedling?
The Morpheus8 RF Microneedling treatment is a versatile treatment that can benefit patients of many ages and skin types. If you would like to address scarring, acne scarring, skin laxity or discoloration, you may be a good candidate for Morpheus8 RF Microneedling. The face and neck are the most commonly treated areas, but this technique can be used nearly anywhere that the symptoms above are found.
What is the Morpheus8 RF Microneedling Procedure Like?
The Morpheus8 RF Microneedling treatment begins with the application of a topical cooling gel. This minimizes any discomfort that may otherwise occur during the microneedling process. Then, the Morpheus8 device will be used to create small wounds in the skin’s surface. This may cause a stinging or tingling sensation in the skin, but it is generally well-tolerated by patients. A Morpheus8 RF Microneedling treatment typically takes less than an hour to perform, but the exact duration of treatment will depend on the area being treated.
What is Recovery Like After Morpheus8 RF Microneedling?
After Morpheus8 RF Microneedling, you can expect some swelling, redness and sensitivity in the treatment area. These symptoms usually last about one week but can be easily covered up by makeup within a day or two of treatment. Additionally, you’ll want to limit sun exposure following treatment and use sunscreen while the skin heals.
The results from Morpheus8 RF Microneedling will become visible within a few days of treatment. More significant results will be visible within about a month and may continue to improve for up to three months after your treatment. Depending on your treatment goals, we may recommend a series of up to three treatment sessions for optimal results.
