What is Morpheus8® Treatment?
Morpheus8® Treatment is a minimally invasive skin procedure designed to induce production of elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid in the skin, leading to improvement of soft tissue laxity and volume loss. It uses radiofrequency energy with microneedling to tighten the skin, and to create more volume and elastic tissue. It may be combined with FaceTite or performed alone.
What areas can benefit from Morpheus8® Treatment?
Morpheus8® Treatment may be used to treat sagging tissues along the jawline, the upper arms, upper knee region, and other areas where there has been loss of skin elasticity.
The procedure is performed in our office while you are fully awake, and usually it requires only topical anesthesia. Once the area is numb, the Morpheus handheld device with 24
micro-needle electrodes is placed on the skin. Once deployed into the dermis, these tiny electrodes precisely deliver fractionated thermal energy into the deep layers of the skin where the concentration of collagen is the highest. Fractionated heat zones are created within the dermis, without injury to the outer skin. The process is repeated along the entire area in need of treatment. Radiofrequency heat delivery into the treated areas stimulates dermal remodeling with new elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid formation, resulting in visible skin improvement.
What is the downtime with the Morpheus8® Treatment?
Patients should expect minimal downtime with the Morpheus8® Treatment. You may experience mild redness and swelling. Your skin may feel tight and dry for about three to five days after treatment. There is also a chance you may experience some minimal bruising and scabbing. The procedure may be repeated more than once to obtain desired results. The average patient will undergo 2-3 treatments, one month apart.
