What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a face and body treatment that stimulates collagen and elastin to tighten and restore contours. The system uses radiofrequency energy to administer a gentle warmth to the skin, and your body responds by creating collagen and elastin. Collagen is a building block of skin that provides underlying support, and elastin gives your skin resilience. Your body naturally breaks down collagen and elastin. When we are younger, our bodies are able to produce new collagen and elastin at the same rate as what is lost. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and elastin, so it cannot replenish these substances, and there is a deficit of both substances. Morpheus8 helps your body produce more collagen to replace what is lost.
How is Morpheus8 Performed?
The treatment area is numbed with a topical or injectable anesthesia, and we may also give you a mild sedative. The Morpheus8 device is used to create micro-channels in the skin and administer the radiofrequency energy. There is no downtime. Your skin may feel sensitive and have a slight red or pink appearance. In most cases, a Morpheus8 treatment takes about 60 minutes. Some patients may need a series of treatments to achieve the desired results.
Am I a Good Candidate for Morpheus8?
We recommends Morpheus8 treatments for sagging skin and signs of aging, such as:
- Nasolabial folds
- Undereye bags
- Frown lines
- Wrinkles around the lips
- Lines and wrinkles in the neck and cheek areas
- Sagging skin and lines on the knees, abdomen, and arms
What are Typical Morpheus8 Results?
You may have a small amount of bruising and swelling after the treatment. Gently apply ice packs or cold compresses to manage these symptoms. The skin in the treatment area may feel tight, and this is normal. Symptoms typically last 24 to 48 hours.
The treatment area is improved immediately after the procedure. Collagen and elastin develop gradually over the coming months. Full results take about six weeks. Morpheus8 cannot stop the aging process, so your body continues to break down the new collagen and elastin. You may need additional treatments within a few years.
