  • What is Morpheus8?
    Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that fractionally remodels and contours your face and body. Morpheus8 uses radiofrequency (RF) energy and microneedling to target the deeper layers of your skin and stimulates collagen production in the underlying layers of your dermis. It can penetrate up to 4mm deep and melt away fat, allowing you to contour and morph various parts of your body. Doing so triggers your body’s natural healing response and remodels your skin by prompting an organic anti-aging process
  • What areas can be treated?
    Morpheus8 can be used on any area of your body that can benefit from subdermal renewal. Patients commonly use Morpheus8 to treat their lower face and neck. However, it can also be used to reduce acne scars, treat wrinkles, stretch marks, surgical scars, and much more.
  • How many treatments will I need?
    Most patients have up to 3 sessions.
  • How long should I wait in between treatments?
    We recommend waiting 4 weeks between treatments.
  • What is the benefit of fractionated energy?
    Fractionated energy has been scientifically proven to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen.
  • Who can use Morpheus8?
    Morpheus8 can be used on all skin types. Treatment is often recommended for: Men and women between the ages of 30-55 who want to improve visible signs of aging. Patients with acne or acne scars that aren’t responding to topical and/or oral medications.
  • What is the benefit of RF energy?
    Radiofrequency (RF) energy treatments are safe and effective for tightening skin, reducing the size of your pores and the appearance of wrinkles, and inducing new collagen and elastin production to help your skin become firmer and more youthful-looking.
  • Can Morpheus8 be used in combination with other treatments?
    Yes. Morpheus8 can be used in conjunction with other treatments.
  • How long should I wait after a treatment before applying make-up?
    Patients can apply make-up 1-2 days after treatment.
  • What kind of post-procedure care is required?
    Patients should avoid direct sun exposure and tanning. We recommend that you moisturize the treated area and use broad spectrum sunscreen every day. Not only do these reduce the future risk of skin cancer, but sunscreens can also slow the aging process and reduce wrinkles.

Pre and post treatment instructions.

Pre-treatment Instructions

• Topical retinoid therapy should be discontinued a few days prior to treatment
• Avoid any prolonged exposure to the sun, if you must be in the sun use a zinc oxide sunscreen of at least SPF 30.
• Avoid taking anticoagulants (aspirin, mobic, ibuprofen, naproxen) for one week prior unless prescribed by your doctor.
• Arrive to your appointment with clean skin. You will be given the opportunity to remove your make-up in the event this was not possible.
• Once you arrive in the office, we will apply numbing cream to your skin and allow that to sit for one hour while you wait in our numbing room. We will then bring you into your treatment room, clean your skin, and start the procedure

 

After your Treatment:
• Immediately after your treatment most patients will experience a clinical endpoint of erythema (redness) for 1-3 days, however for more aggressive treatments this may last longer. Slight to moderate edema (swelling) and mild to moderate sunburn sensation are also common post treatment and may last 1-3 days. Skin may crust and peel for 2-7 days depending on the treatment setting.
• Skin may feel warm and tighter than usual.
• Skin may crust and peel for 3-7 days after treatment.
• Redness and swelling may last for 3-4 days.

Post-treatment Instructions:

Before discharge a topical ointment may be applied to the face. We will discuss what products to use post-treatment during your appointment.
• Makeup may not be worn for 24 hours after the procedure. If there are no areas with active oozing and warm redness, makeup may be applied after this time.
• You may resume the use of your usual skin care products (usually 2-3 days). Retinoids may be used 5-7 days after treatment.
• There are no restrictions on bathing except to treat the skin gently, avoid scrubbing or trauma to the treated areas, as if you had a sunburn.
• Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation (darker pigmentation).
• Please always use a zinc oxide sunblock SPF 30 after your treatment.
• Multiple treatments over a period of several months may be required to achieve the desired response. You will notice immediate as well as longer term improvements in your skin. The time for skin cell turnover is 28 days so most people will begin to see increased results after this time.
