Are you worried about loose skin, fine lines, facial aging, acne, stretch marks, or wrinkles? RF (radio frequency) Microneedling with Morpheus8 is your dermatological solution.
RF microneedling is a minimally invasive, outpatient skin tightening treatment that helps you achieve youthful, glowing skin. It’s considered a standard treatment for many skin-related issues.
Since 1995, RF microneedling has been bolstering in popularity. The process and results can be found in tens of thousands of TikTok, YouTube, and Instagram videos, only adding to the fervor.
In this post, we will talk about how microneedling works, why we use Morpheus8, Morpheus8’s many benefits, and more.
Let’s get started:
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling involves inserting short, sterilized needles into your skin to stimulate your body’s natural inflammatory and healing processes. As a result, more collagen and blood vessels form, making your skin tighter and appear more plump and youthful.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is an advanced treatment that combines microneedling with RF. The addition of RF helps trigger elastin and collagen production on levels that microneedling can’t reach.
Before the procedure begins, your treatment area will be cleaned with a topical numbing cream. Then, the Morpheus8 hand piece is pressed into the area, allowing the tiny needles to make micro-punctures in your skin. Once the needles are in place, they emit RF waves. The heat from the RF waves travels deep into your dermal skin layer to tighten the skin and fat below, without causing any thermal damage to your dermis.
What Are Some of the Benefits of Morpheus8?
Morpheus8’s skin-tightening properties, and the fact that it’s the deepest fractional treatment possible means that it comes with many benefits. Here are a few:
- It builds collagen and reduces wrinkles on all skin types
- It’s safe for most skin types
- The addition of RF energy reduces treatment and recovery time
- It works on many areas of your body, including your inner and outer thighs, abdomen, jawline, jowls, above the knees, and on the skin below your chin.
What Can Morpheus8 Treat?
Morpheus8 can correct all the following:
- Loose or sagging skin on your face and body
- Stretch marks
- Acne and acne scars
- Skin discoloration
- Wrinkles and sagging skin under your eyes
- Facial lines
- Enlarged pores
What You Should Expect from a Morpheus8 Treatment?
You will likely have three or four treatment sessions, depending on the area you’re treating. Additional treatments may be required, but that’s something you and your physician can discuss before getting started.
Avoid prolonged sun exposure before each session and for 72 hours after, and keep the area of skin you’re treating clean before each session. You should also avoid using lotions, oils, or other skin moisturizers. The treatments themselves take under two hours.
After treatment, you can expect tiny, pinpoint scabs to form after 24-72 hours. These go away on their own once your skin heals. You may also feel like you have light sunburn and have flaky or even peeling skin. These symptoms disappear after a few days.
Moisturize and clean the treated area, and always wash your hands before touching it. If you have to go outside, use a high SPF sunscreen during sun exposure.
You can begin seeing and enjoying results after three or four weeks. For best results, we recommend doing three or four treatments spaced one month apart.
