Many procedures are available today that stimulate the skin and offer rejuvenation benefits. However, few offer the ability to reduce wrinkles, tighten the skin, eliminate hyperpigmentation, and fade stretch marks with one device.
Morpheus8 combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to achieve these benefits, making it popular among people who want to rejuvenate their appearance.
What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a popular treatment designed to tighten the skin and encourage collagen production. Many individuals see a decline in collagen production as they age, resulting in increased wrinkles, skin laxity, and hyperpigmentation. The Morpheus treatment combats these common skin concerns to deliver a more youthful appearance.
The combination of microneedling and radiofrequency energy in one device provides skin tightening benefits that traditional microneedling can’t achieve.
The fine needles in microneedling penetrate deep into the skin’s dermis, creating tiny micro-wounds that stimulate collagen production. At the same time, radiofrequency energy heats the dermis, tightening skin fibers and encouraging greater elasticity.
You can see results from Morpheus8 after your first session. However, repeated sessions further enhance the results.
What Can Morpheus8 Treat?
Morpheus8 isn’t limited to skin tightening. This wonder treatment can improve a variety of skin concerns, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin laxity and moderately sagging skin
- Skin texture
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
- Acne scarring
In most cases, we recommend three treatments spaced a few weeks apart. When we consult with you, we’ll design an appropriate treatment schedule based on your goals.
What Are the Benefits of Morpheus8?
There are many advantages to choosing Morpheus8 for skin rejuvenation.
Enhanced Collagen Production
Collagen keeps your skin firm and lifted. The natural aging process gradually reduces the amount of collagen your body produces, starting in your mid-20s. You’ll likely notice an increase in wrinkles and skin laxity beginning in the mid-30s and early 40s.
The microneedling used in Morpheus8 encourages skin to produce more collagen by creating tiny micro-wounds. With enhanced collagen production, skin turnover occurs. Older, damaged skin cells are replaced by new ones, leaving you with a more youthful, even-toned complexion.
Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Most people aren’t excited by the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. A Morpheus treatment encourages skin turnover and tightening around the eyes, forehead, cheeks, and neck. The result is a brighter look to your skin, with fewer visible lines and wrinkles.
The microneedles specifically encourage collagen production, while radiofrequency energy gently heats the skin’s fibers, giving the skin a tighter appearance.
Morpheus8 offers skin tightening benefits by delivering radiofrequency energy to the neck, chin, and jowls. However, skin tightening isn’t limited only to the face. Morpheus8 can effectively tighten the skin in other body areas, including the arms and abdomen.
Fewer Acne Scars
Many individuals struggle with acne in their teenage years and early adulthood. More severe cases of acne cause scarring. Acne scars appear as raised or indented areas on the face. Certain creams are recommended to treat acne scars but aren’t always successful.
The tiny needles used in Morpheus8 treatments penetrate acne scars and reach into the deeper layers of the dermis. As the needles create minor injuries to the skin, it produces collagen, healing the old scars. Patients often see a significant reduction in their acne scars, especially if they undergo multiple Morpheus8 sessions.
Faded Stretch Marks
Stretch marks frequently appear due to weight fluctuations or pregnancy. Once they have erupted, they’re challenging to get rid of. Morpheus treatment improves the appearance of stretch marks, gently breaking up the tissue and encouraging the production of new collagen.
Following treatment, patients often see a significant reduction in their stretch marks. Morpheus8 can treat stretch marks in many areas of the body, including the abdomen, buttocks, breasts, and thighs.
Morpheus8 is a non-invasive procedure, and patients who undergo treatment don’t experience any downtime. Following treatment, individuals can return to their daily activities. Results from the treatment will be apparent in the weeks following the procedure.
What Should I Expect During a Morpheus Treatment?
Before undergoing treatment with Morpheus8, you’ll have a consultation with one of our experienced providers at Miia Medspa. During the appointment, we’ll ask about your treatment goals, medical history, and any medications you’re taking. Once we have the information needed, we’ll determine whether you’re a good candidate for Morpheus8.
During your Morpheus treatment, you’ll lie down on our comfortable treatment table. We’ll begin by cleaning the area to be treated thoroughly. Sometimes, we’ll administer a numbing cream, especially if we treat a sensitive area. Next, we’ll adjust the length of the needles on the Morpheus8 device to meet your needs.
We’ll use shorter needles to treat thinner areas of the skin, like the eye area and forehead. A more extended needle depth is appropriate for thicker layers of the skin, like the cheeks. As the needles penetrate your skin, the Morpheus8 device administers radiofrequency energy, which makes your skin feel warm.
In most cases, a Morpheus treatment requires less than an hour. Additional time may be necessary if you’re treating multiple areas. After your treatment is over, you’ll be able to return to your daily activities.
Results from Morpheus8 become apparent within a few days, and maximum results are visible within three months.
The best results come from multiple treatment sessions. We will discuss your goals and recommend the appropriate number of treatments to meet them.
