What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that combines the powers of radiofrequency technology with microneedling techniques to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and lax skin around the face and body for a more radiant youthful appearance. The most commonly treated areas include the face, periorbital area, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. Because this advanced system simply uses small, hair-like microneedles to gently puncture the skin and emit radiofrequency waves into the skin, and does not require any cutting or incisions, this treatment is perfect in between running errands or while on a lunch break from work. Patients who receive Morpheus8 treatments can enjoy:
- Minimal downtime and recovery period.
- Reduced fine lines and wrinkles around the face and body
- Tightened lax skin around the face.
- Results in as little as one 60-minute treatment session.
How is Morpheus8 Performed?
Your Morpheus8 treatment will be performed in Dr. Vu’s state-of-the-art facility. Prior to your Morpheus8 treatment, a topical anesthetic may be applied to your treatment area to ensure you remain comfortable throughout your session. Once numb, the handheld Morpheus8 device will be gently pressed into the skin. The micro needles in the device will press into your skin, creating small perforations through which radiofrequency technology will be emitted. The entire treatment process typically takes less than an hour to complete, however, times may vary depending on the size of your treatment area and your desired results.
What Can I Expect After My Morpheus8 Treatment?
After each Morpheus8 treatment, patients can expect mild swelling and tenderness around the treated area. The skin may also be red and feel sensitive to sunlight, similar to the feeling of a sunburn. These are all to be expected and typically fade within a few days of treatment. As the skin heals, collagen and elastin production in the skin will increase and produce the patient’s desired results. Some patients may need multiple Morpheus8 sessions to achieve their desired results. Visible results can be seen withing a few days, but typically after three weeks, the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
