Morpheus8 (Microneedling with RF) -Discover More Radiant & Beautiful Skin
Aging skin is one of the most common complaints and concerns we hear from patients. While we haven’t yet discovered how to stop the aging process-we have found some great treatments to get your skin looking it best to minimize the appearance of aging. The Morpheus8 by InMode is one of those treatments. The advancement of minimally-invasive technologies has truly exploded over recent years, and we continue to be impressed by results seen from some of these modalities. Plastic Surgery of the Face and Body in Wall, NJ remains focused on offering the newest and best technologies to our patients to help meet their aesthetic goals and desires. The addition of the Morpheus8 RF microneedling by InMode at our Wall, NJ practice is exciting for both our patients and us. The combination of RF (radio-frequency) energy with microneedling is a game changer for collagen remodeling. Morpheus8 is not your everyday microneedling treatment. This Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD) actually remolds fat to create more youthful facial contours. This treatment can be done quickly with little to no discomfort. With the busy schedules we all have, this is a plus.
What is Morpheus8?
MORPHEUS8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks will reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process. The combination of microneedling with radio frequency helps to achieve remodeling under the skin, leading to increased collagen production and skin tightening.
What areas can be treated?
Morpheus8 can be used on any areas that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal. The most commonly treated areas include the lower face and neck. Areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment. Morpheus8 microneedling has the ability to treat the following areas/conditions:
- Active acne or acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Sagging skin
- Poor skin texture
- Enlarged pores
- Lines and creases in the skin
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on your Morpheus8 treatment regimen, you can expect to have between 1-3 sessions.
How quickly will I see results?
Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically after three weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
What is the benefit of Frationated Energy?
Fractionated RF energy is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen and fat. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime.
Can anyone use Morpheus8?
The benefit of Morpheus8’s color blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types. The unique properties allow even darker tones to be treated.
What is the benefit of the RF Energy?
RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalize the collagen. The treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.
Can this be used in combination with other treatments?
Yes, Morpheus8 can be used in the same treatment session, or a few days after other treatments. This treatment is also great for patients who are looking to maintain their facelift results. Radio-frequency microneedling treatments may become part of their long-term care program. This treatment can also be paired with FaceTite™ by InMode, especially for those who may not yet qualify for a facelift but are looking for an “in-between” solution without surgery or dermal fillers. All of these options can be discussed with your provider. We want to make sure we provide the right treatment for YOU.
When can I put make-up on after treatment?
Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week depending on treatment parameters.
What kind of post procedure care is required?
Patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing their future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process.
