Morpheus8 Microneedling with Radiofrequency
Morpheus8 combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) technology to address various skin concerns and promote skin rejuvenation through a minimally invasive approach. Morpheus8 can:
Tighten loose or saggy skin
Thicken crepey skin
Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
Improve overall skin texture
Diminish visibility of acne scars and surgical scars
Fade the appearance of stretch marks
Treat hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating)
How It Works
Morpheus8 uses ultrafine microneedles on the skin's surface, creating micro-injuries that trigger the body's natural healing response. Unlike traditional microneedling, however, these microneedles are integrated with radiofrequency technology to deliver controlled RF energy into the skin layers at adjustable depths between 0.5mm-7mm. The synergy of microneedling and RF stimulates collagen and elastin production, enhancing skin structure and elasticity for a firmer, tighter, and more youthful appearance.
Morpheus8 features a real-time temperature monitoring system, ensuring the controlled delivery of radiofrequency energy while a built-in safety mechanism halts the treatment automatically if the temperature surpasses a specified level, guaranteeing patients a safe and effective procedure.
The variable depth range of 0.5mm to 7mm, coupled with an 8mm thermal profile, allows the penetration of RF energy into the deeper layers of the skin, yielding enhanced outcomes. Additionally, the burst technology enables the simultaneous treatment of three distinct depths in a single pulse, fostering a three-dimensional remodeling and tightening process. This comprehensive approach delivers improved elasticity, resilience, and tensile strength throughout the entire skin-adipose matrix while minimizing mechanical trauma. Consequently, this results in a noteworthy reduction in treatment duration, diminished skin injury, and heightened treatment uniformity.
Morpheus8 is a versatile platform, but like any device, the results are dependent upon the provider’s skill, experience, and control behind the device. The customizable settings allow your provider to adjust handpiece tip size, energy level, depth of penetration, and cycle mode. This enables your Functional Beauty provider to have extra control over the procedure to ensure the best and safest results for your unique skin type and anatomy.
What To Expect
1. Consultation: Your journey begins with a consultation where your provider will listen to your concerns and formulate a plan based upon your unique anatomy, skin type, and goals.
2. Prep: Before the procedure, your provider will cleanse the treatment area to ensure it's free from oils and makeup and apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area. You will need to allow the numbing cream 1 hour to sit and activate before the treatment begins.
3. Procedure: Once you're comfortably numb, your provider will give the treatment area another refreshing cleanse and start stamping the handpiece across those targeted spots. The microneedles create controlled micro-injuries, while the radiofrequency energy stimulates your skin's own collagen and elastin production.
4. Sensation: You may feel a sensation of heat and mild discomfort during the procedure, but the topical numbing cream helps manage potential discomfort.
5. Duration: The treatment duration can vary depending on the size and number of areas being treated. Expect your Morpheus8 session to last around 2 hours including the numbing time.
6. Post-Treatment Care: After the procedure, the treated area may be red or swollen, but these effects are usually temporary. Your provider will provide specific post-treatment care instructions, including skincare routines and sun protection.
7. Results: Results are not immediate, as the process of collagen and elastin production takes time. Improvement in skin texture, tightness, and other targeted concerns gradually becomes noticeable over weeks to months.
8. Follow-up Sessions: Depending on your specific goals and the recommendation of your provider, you may need a series of Morpheus8 sessions to achieve optimal results. We recommend starting with 3 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
