These days, there are more treatment options than ever before that allow you to reduce fine lines, reverse signs of aging, and look and feel better overall. Many modern cosmetic procedures are completely non-invasive and come with minimal recovery time.
One such procedure is Morpheus 8. This promising new treatment combines microneedling treatments and radiofrequency technologies to target the deepest layers of the skin. This stimulates collagen production, which has powerful anti-aging effects on the skin. Underlying skin tissue tightens, reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging.
Not only is Morpheus 8 a minimally invasive procedure, it is also potentially less damaging to the skin than similar treatments. Those looking to get younger, smoother skin on various parts of the body may benefit from this treatment.
If you are considering Morpheus 8, we will provide a brief overview below.
What Happens During Treatment?
During your consultation, you will talk with your clinician about your goals and which areas of the body to target. Morpheus 8 can be used on the face as well as areas like the thighs, stomach, and buttocks.
During treatment, your clinician may apply topical numbing cream on the treatment site if you would prefer. While some patients report light irritation or tickling during treatment, this is not typically painful.
Your clinician will apply the Morpheus 8 device to the treatment area. Treatment typically takes between 20 and 45 minutes, depending on the size of your treatment site.
Some patients may see results within a single treatment. However, in some cases, it may take two or three treatments to get the results you want. Your clinician can help you determine the right number of treatments for you.
What Is Morpheus 8 Aftercare Like?
You can resume most regular activity right away. Recovery typically takes two to three days, although only a small amount of lifestyle changes are needed.
You will need to refrain from wearing makeup and stay out of the sun as much as possible.
For one to two weeks following treatment, your clinician may advise you to moisturize the treatment area. If the area is usually exposed to the sun, they will also recommend you wear sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.
When Do I See Results?
You should see some results within the first few days. However, these may be minor – especially if you had swelling or bruising after the procedure.
Results should gradually improve over time and most people see full results within three months.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Morpheus 8?

Does Morpheus 8 Have Side Effects?

After undergoing this procedure, some people notice bruising, redness, or swelling near the treatment site. If you are getting a larger area treated, you may be more likely to experience these side effects.
