Hopefully we can explain why and also give our readers some insight on why Morpheus8 is such a high demand treatment to help you restore youthful skin.
What is Morpheus8
Morpheus8 is an innovative award-winning treatment that combines micro-needling with the power of radiofrequency (RF) to achieve firmer and tighter skin. This amazing treatment achieves superior skin tightening and restores elastin and collagen that is lost as we age to leave a firmer, smoother and tighter skin.
Morpheus8 has a number of benefits. Not only is this a non-invasive treatment, the treatment addresses a number skin concerns. This includes:
- Treats fine lines, wrinkles
- Tightens and firms skin
- Moulds under skin fat
- Helps treat acne, pigmentation and stretch marks
- Reduces excess fat and sagging
Morpheus8 can be used on many parts of the body. Popular areas include, face, neck, abdomen, arms, buttocks, thighs and knees.
How does Morpheus8 Work?
As we age our skin laxity is decreased. This results saggy skin, fine lines and wrinkles.
Morpheus8 works by delivering penetrating deep into the skin and fat using a probe with tiny pins whilst delivering radiofrequency energy. Radiofrequency energy is scientifically proven to rebuild collagen, reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen.
During the treatment, tiny pins penetrate through the skin causing micro injuries. As the pins penetrate the skin ,powerful radiofrequency energy is delivered to heat deep layers of the dermis, where elastin and collagen are created. This creates micro lesions that stimulate the body’s healing response, and the heat from the radiofrequency to heat the skin deep down to help tighten the skin. The result of this is that collagen and elastin are promoted resulting in firmer and contoured skin.
What Happens During a Morpheus8 Treatment?
You will firstly undergo a detailed consultation with one of our expert practitioners. Once we have agreed a treatment plan and your suitability for the treatment, a numbing cream will be applied to the area that is to be treated. You will be asked to wait whilst the numbing takes effect. This is usually around 30-40 mins after which you will undergo the treatment.
During the treatment a hand-held probe will be passed across the area that is being treated. The depth of the pins can be adjusted depending on the area that is being treated, During the procedure some patients may experience some tingling and a heat sensation. The procedure itself (excluding the numbing) can take as little as 10 mins (depending on the size of the area). The treatment itself is not painful, but there may be some discomfort experienced.
Morpheus8 Downtime & Aftercare
Following treatment, you may experience pink skin. This is completely normal and can take several days to resolve. Furthermore, there may be some flaking of the skin. This is also completely normal post treatment. A good quality high factor SPF is recommended, and strong sunlight should be avoided for a few days.
Although a course of three treatments is recommended, for some results will be visible after the first treatment. However, results unfold over period of three months.
After completing the course of three treatments, results are expected to last between 12-18 months. An annual top-up is recommended following this. Good quality skincare is also recommended following your treatment to maintain the skin. Your practitioner should be able to recommend some skincare and how to use this.
