What Is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a radiofrequency treatment that works through a powerful microneedling technique. This system is an excellent solution for facial aging because it can address multiple concerns simultaneously through collagen stimulation. Morpheus8 can improve a number of cosmetic concerns, including:

  • Sun damage
  • Poor skin texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Deep creases in the skin
  • Enlarged pore size
  • Acne scars and other types of scars
  • Mild jowls
  • Submental fullness (double chin)

Benefits Of Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is an attractive non-surgical treatment because it offers more significant benefits than microneedling or radiofrequency alone, and it does not involve incisions or extended downtime. The treatment time is relatively short, and results begin to develop right away.

How Morpheus8 Treatments Work

Traditional microneedling increases collagen production by creating microchannels as deep as 4 mm into the skin. Most radiofrequency treatments stimulate collagen production by passing energy through the skin via an external applicator. Morpheus8 has changed the delivery system. During this treatment, radiofrequency energy is sent through the microneedles to stimulate regenerative activity deeper beneath the skin. This treatment is commonly performed on the face and neck, but it can be used on any part of the body that could benefit from collagen remodeling.

Frequency Recommendations

Tissue remodeling begins immediately after the first Morpheus8 treatment. Depending on the desired outcome, a patient may schedule 2 to 4 sessions over a period of several weeks. We recommend only the number of treatments a patient may need based on our consultation and clinical examination of their skin and adipose tissue.

When You Can Expect Results from Morpheus8

Visible results can be seen within a few days, but the most noticeable results appear after about three weeks. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.

People Who Can Use Morpheus8

The benefit of Morpheus8’s color-blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types.

Using Morpheus8 with Other Treatments

Morpheus8 can be used in the same treatment session or a few days after other treatments. Morpheus8 can also be combined with other lnMode energy treatments or injectables to achieve more extensive results.

Wearing Make-Up After Treatment

Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness, depending on treatment parameters.


Post Procedure Care

Patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing the risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also slow the aging process.

Am I a Good Morpheus8 Candidate?

Ideal candidates are in good general health. They also have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the treatment. People with active acne outbreaks or certain skin conditions, such as rosacea and eczema, may need to avoid this service. A consultation with a qualified provider like those at Fante Eye & Face Centre can help you determine if Morpheus8 is the right choice for your skin concerns.

What Are the Different Types of Acne Scars?

Acne scars come in various forms. Depressed scars are the most common. They are characterized by shallow hollows in the skin, often resulting from a loss of collagen. On the other hand, raised scars appear as bumps on the skin's surface. They are caused by an overproduction of collagen during the healing process.

Can Morpheus8 Treat Acne Scars?

Yes, Morpheus8 is highly effective in treating all kinds of acne scars. By utilizing microneedling combined with radiofrequency energy, it promotes collagen production deep within the skin. It also smooths out uneven texture and reduces the appearance of imperfections.

What Causes Wrinkles?

Wrinkles primarily result from the natural aging process, where the skin loses collagen and elastin. Prolonged exposure to sunlight accelerates this process by breaking down collagen. Additionally, repeated facial expressions can cause fine lines and wrinkles as skin elasticity decreases over time.

Can Morpheus8 Help with Wrinkles?

Absolutely. Morpheus8 targets the deeper layers of the skin to rejuvenate and rebuild collagen. It effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It's an excellent non-surgical option for achieving a more youthful complexion.

What Are Some Signs of Sun Damage?

Signs of sun damage on the skin include the appearance of sunspots or age spots, which are flat areas of darker pigmentation. Prolonged sun exposure can also lead to a rough, leathery texture. The skin may feel dry and look wrinkled prematurely as well.

Can Morpheus8 Be Used for Sun Damage?

Morpheus8 is also beneficial for correcting sun damage. It helps resurface the skin while promoting new collagen and elastin production. This can improve the overall tone and texture of the skin.

What Specific Precautions Should I Take Before My Session?

Before your session, avoid sun exposure and refrain from using any products containing retinol or acids to minimize irritation. Ensure you disclose your full medical history to your practitioner to assess suitability and optimize pre-treatment care.

What Are the Potential Side Effects?

Immediately after treatment, you may experience redness, swelling, and slight discomfort, similar to a sunburn. These symptoms typically resolve within a few days. Long-term side effects are rare when treated by a qualified practitioner. This is why it’s vital to choose a reputable provider like those at Fante Eye & Face Centre.

How Long Do the Results Last?

Results from Morpheus8 can last up to a year or more. However, we recommend periodic maintenance sessions to prolong the effects. The exact frequency will depend on individual skin conditions and goals.
