When you visit Flawless Skin Center, we know you want to highest-quality skincare treatments available. For that reason, we continually test the waters as medical science develops new options. When we came across Morpheus8, we knew we had to add it to our list of procedures due to its ability to provide you with flawless skin.
Morpheus8 is a versatile treatment option for rejuvenating the skin with little to no downtime. Its effects last about a year and the FDA has approved it. You only need to undergo a local anesthetic or a numbing cream at the outset of the procedure.
How Morpheus8 Rejuvenates Skin
Morpheus8 combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with a micro-needling process, delivering RF energy to your skin’s deep layers. This creates tiny lesions which activate your body’s healing mechanisms. These mechanisms force the production of elastin and collagen. That results in remodeling and firming the skin.
Essentially, Morpheus8 uses different methods to treat numerous skin concerns, such as:
Although most individuals use it as a treatment on the face, neck, and jawline, your doctor or technician can use the Morpheus8 treatment on the buttocks or abdomen. Most patients require up to three sessions, occurring four to six weeks apart. Each treatment requires 15 to 60 minutes to administer and costs about $1,800 on average.
Reasons to Use Morpheus8
Although only your doctor can tell you if Morpheus8 might work for you, there are many reasons to use it. Its non-invasive nature makes it safer to use than other procedures and provides a safe treatment for all skin tones, including those with hyperpigmentation. Furthermore, it does not cause hyperpigmentation. You can also use it on any part of the body, and it’s a relatively painless method of restoring the skin.
Downsides of Morpheus8
On the other hand, treatments may take a while to show full results. You will have to wait until three months after the first Morpheus8 appointment to see the full results. It would be best if you also underwent an annual upkeep treatment to maintain your results. You can experience discoloration for about a week after the treatment. You also might see bumps and grid marks. Although you won’t end the treatment with hyperpigmentation or scars, you could experience them before the three treatments finish. It can cause pain if your doctor or technician uses the device’s higher settings.
If you need a facial treatment to tighten skin that has started to sag or to smooth wrinkles, micro-needling with RF energy can genuinely help. You can use it to rid yourself of acne scars or other types of hyperpigmentation. Those with deeper skin tones can safely use Morpheus8 when other options such as lasers could cause hyperpigmentation, as well. This procedure can use many needle types, and your treatment provider will choose the one that best suits your skin tone and texture. If you have just entered the phase of life where you notice skin creams no longer firm your skin appropriately, Morpheus8 might be the proper treatment for you. Also, it’s perfect if you want to look younger without the risk of specific side effects.
