Morpheus8 is an innovative new treatment that has skyrocketed in recent years due to being incredibly effective. It combines microneedle and radiofrequency (RF) to tighten and brighten loose skin and reduce puffiness around the eyelids or cheekbones for more vibrant-looking skin.
We will discuss what to do before the procedure and what to do following it. Then, based on the information provided, you can determine if Morpheus8 suits you.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive treatment that can improve the appearance of your skin and reduce the signs of aging. It delivers heat beneath the skin with Microneedling RF treatment, resulting in increased collagen and elastin production. This results in a smoother, more youthful complexion with fewer wrinkles and improved texture; it also aids in the reduction of acne scarring and other types of blemishes.
Before the procedure, it is critical to have realistic expectations and be aware of the potential risks associated with Morpheus8. Some common side effects are redness, swelling, bruising, itching, or burning sensation.
Are there any side effects associated with Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is considered a very safe procedure, however temporary side effects are still possible. The most common side effect is mild redness and swelling that typically subsides within 24-48 hours after the treatment. In rare cases, some people may experience scarring, hyperpigmentation, or infection.
Can Morpheus8 treat deep wrinkles?
Yes! Morpheus8 can be used to reduce signs of aging, including the appearance of deep wrinkles. However, it is important to note that results may vary from person to person and will only become noticeable over several weeks or months as collagen production increases.
How long do the results of Morpheus8 last?
The results of a Morpheus8 treatment can last for several months or even years, depending on your lifestyle and how well you follow post-treatment guidelines. To maintain your results, it is important to take good care of your skin by using sunscreen, following a healthy lifestyle, and using quality skincare products.
Can Morpheus8 be combined with other skin treatments?
Yes! Morpheus8 can be safely combined with certain laser treatments, such as Fraxel or CO2 resurfacing, to further enhance your results. It is important to consult with your doctor before combining Morpheus8 with other treatments.
Patients are typically advised to do the following before undergoing Morpheus8 treatment:
1. Consult with a qualified medical professional to see if Morpheus8 is the proper treatment for you.
2. Ensure that you are fully aware of the risks associated with the procedure.
3. Follow all of your doctor’s pre-treatment recommendations.
4. Arrange for someone to drive you home after your treatment.
5. Avoid strenuous activity and stay hydrated for the first few days after treatment.
6. You must not smoke for at least two weeks before the procedure.
7. Avoid caffeine and alcohol for 24 hours before the procedure.
8. Clear the treatment area of all cosmetics.
Following the Morpheus8 treatment, we strongly advise the following practices:
1. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight for the first two weeks following your treatment.
2. Wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to protect your skin from UV rays and further damage.
3. Use a non-irritating cleanser, moisturizer, and skincare products for sensitive skin.
4. Swimming and other water-related activities should be avoided for 48 hours after the procedure.
5. Avoid picking or scratching your face, as well as scabs, redness, or dry skin.
6. Avoid retinoids and active acne treatments in the treated area until the skin has healed.
7. Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated and promote healing.
8. Contact your doctor as soon as possible if you experience any discomfort or signs of infection following the procedure.
Morpheus8 can produce skin that is fuller, firmer, more tightly bound, and smoother in just one to two sessions. In addition to skin tightening, the Morpheus8 is FDA-approved as a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD) and is excellent for melting away extra fat beneath the chin. Another issue that Morpheus8 can help with is postpartum abdominal laxity.
Morpheus8 is also helpful in treating other skin conditions such as sun damage, wrinkles, and acne scars. The procedure’s results are frequently visible within a few weeks of treatment, with continued improvement lasting up to 4-6 months after treatment. Furthermore, fractional radiofrequency technology allows treatments to be tailored to the needs of each individual.
The Morpheus8 can also increase skin elasticity and volume by stimulating natural collagen production. This aids in reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin while restoring a brighter and smoother complexion.
What to expect after Morpheus8 treatment?
Most patients can return to work and normal activities the day following treatment. However, there may be temporary redness or irritation of the skin for up to a week. Also, a minor issue, swelling, should be resolved quickly.
High-frequency microneedle treatment will also cause the pinpoint’s trim crusts to become prominent but disappear within 24 to 72 hours. Then, the anticipated results will emerge during the next three to four weeks as the skin heals. Typically, the best results are obtained after three treatments.
Reduced wrinkles, fine lines, and improved skin tone are among the most noticeable effects. Additionally, the procedure can improve skin laxity and tighten sagging skin caused by age or weight fluctuations. Further, Morpheus8 can reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and acne.
The treatment can also help to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores while improving overall skin texture. As Morpheus8 helps to stimulate new cell growth and collagen production, it can make your skin look brighter and more radiant.
How long does a Morpheus8 treatment take?
A single session typically takes around 45 minutes to 1 hour.
How long does Morpheus8 last?
Morpheus8 produces long-lasting results that last 4 to 6 months on average. However, the duration of the effect is heavily influenced by variables such as age, skin type, and lifestyle choices. Furthermore, following your doctor’s pre-and post-operative instructions is critical to reaping the most benefits from the procedure.
Following a proper skincare routine can also help to extend the effects of Morpheus8 and maintain healthy skin. This includes wearing sunscreen, not smoking, managing stress, eating a balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, and seeing your doctor or dermatologist regularly. Morpheus8’s stunning results can be enjoyed for months with the proper care and dedication.
When will you see the results?
For best results, most people will require 3 treatments. It’s important to remember that Morpheus8 may not provide immediate results; instead, improvements will be noticeable over several weeks or months as new collagen production takes place. Therefore, the final results of your treatment will not be apparent until several weeks after the last session.
Morpheus8 can be an excellent choice for people who want to rejuvenate their appearance and reduce signs of aging with minimal downtime. By following post and after-treatment guidelines and having realistic expectations, you can ensure successful results from your Morpheus8 treatment.
