Skin Tightening Q&A

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 uses innovative technology, bringing together radiofrequency and microneedling — a combination that has extraordinary effects on your complexion. It helps address some more common signs of aging, such as skin laxity. 

 

While the technology used in Morpheus8 is new, both radiofrequency and microneedling energy have proven effects. These effects include smoother, tighter, more evenly toned skin free of fine lines and wrinkles.

 

A new RF microneedling treatment, Morpheus8, is designed to be more effective than other types of microneedling treatment.

 

What does Morpheus8 do? 

Radiofrequency and microneedling are a potent duo. Microneedling involves pricking the surface of your skin with dozens of very fine needles, creating micro puncture wounds.

 

These wounds stimulate your body’s natural healing ability. Your body produces fresh, new, ample collagen to repair puncture wounds. Skin looks tauter as younger, more elastic cells replace the old, dull ones. 

 

Morpheus8 adds the radiofrequency element to microneedling. The energy penetrates deep layers of your skin, stimulating even greater elastin and collagen production. The results and anti-aging effects are long-lasting.

 

Is Morpheus8 like a facelift? 

The combination of radiofrequency and microneedling tightens skin, smoothes wrinkles, and offers a youthful glow.

 

It’s no wonder that the results obtained from Morpheus8 are sometimes compared to those of a facelift. The one-of-a-kind radiofrequency energy provided by Morpheus8 is ideal for anyone who wants the effects of a facelift without downtime and surgery. 

 

The energy helps firm up loose skin and dissolve excess facial fat, giving you a more lifted, tighter, and contoured face.

 

Is Morpheus8 painful?

You receive a topical numbing cream to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. You can expect to feel a slight prickling sensation followed by a feeling of warmth as the device passes over your skin.

Most people report that microneedling is painless, despite the deep penetration of the needles. Morpheus8 also has temperature controls that allow the team to adjust to a tolerable level.

 

How long is the downtime for the Morpheus8 treatment?

Morpheus8 treatment is noninvasive. So you don’t have to worry about setting aside time for healing after your procedure. If you'd like, you can return to regular activities the next day.

 

You might notice some tiny pinpoint bleeding on the day of your treatment. Lingering redness similar to a sunburn could be present for up to a week after the procedure.
