The Morpheus 8 is a minimally invasive treatment for skin rejuvenation that combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy technology. This procedure makes use of tiny needles to render the radiofrequency energy deep within the skin. This process creates micro-lesions that motivate the natural healing process while collagen and elastin production increases, allowing the skin to become tighter and reconstruct the appearance. The Morpheus 8 targets a wide variety of skin conditions that plague the patient, such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and acne scarring. This treatment is beneficial in all areas of the body but is most popular in the facial area. Optimal treatment results happen with a series of up to three therapies and need to happen every 4-6 weeks.
This procedure creates coagulation in the deep tissue that reconstructs, remodels, and resurfaces the skin quality. This process allows exfoliation and collagen production to naturally corrects themselves, which improves the quality of the skin, such as texture and tone that tightens the skin as it heals. The progressive healing of the skin allows for visible improvements over the course of three months as the production of collagen increases. Visual improvements can happen in a few days or up to three weeks, enhancing acne scarring reduction, softening fine lines and wrinkles, and tightening of the skin. Complete results will be apparent approximately three months after the last treatment.
The Morpheus 8 procedure results last for about a year, so maintenance will be necessary yearly to ensure that optimal results continue. Collagen production takes time to generate and heal the skin, so once that production has started to increase and benefit the skin, it will need to continue to enhance the skin as a long-term goal. The Morpheus 8 is a viable and safe treatment option for skin conditions that plague patients that alter their appearance.
