As people age, many factors can cause imperfections and blemishes on the skin. Invasive procedures can often correct these skin problems; however, many people wish for a less invasive treatment. Radiofrequency microneedling is a non-invasive approach to skin resurfacing and tightening to help you achieve flawless, youthful skin. Morpheus8 is an innovative device that combines radiofrequency with microneedling to emit thermal energy into the skin. This thermal energy stimulates collagen production, elastin, and hyaluronic acid without damaging the skin.
If you are looking to improve your skin’s texture and coloration non-invasively, Morpheus8 by InMode may be right for you.
Morpheus8 is a non-invasive treatment and you can return home to resume all normal activities immediately following treatment.
A topical anesthetic will be placed on the skin before the treatment to prevent any discomfort. This is accomplished with a local anesthetic or ProNox®.
This device uses 21 small, silicone-coated pins that penetrate the skin (up to four millimeters deep) to create hundreds of micro punctures. Thermal energy is then emitted into the skin, stimulating collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. The Morpheus8 device can be programmed to fit your needs by changing intensity levels so you can be confident that the treatment is tailored for you.
Morpheus8 is unique because it works on all skin types and all body areas. However, the best results are usually seen on the face and neck.
Since the Morpheus8 device stimulates collagen and elastin, your skin continues to work long after the treatment. Your skin cells will grow over time to create firmer, smoother skin for months after the initial treatment. Most patients continue to see improvement for six months to one year.
You may feel some discomfort during the treatment, but a local anesthetic can be used to numb the area. We also offer ProNox®, a combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen that can help to minimize pain.
Since Morpeus8 is a non-surgical procedure, there is no need for downtime. You may experience some redness or swelling, but this will subside in a few days. It is important to keep your skin moisturized and use sun protection. Patients can typically resume wearing makeup within 24 hours.
The results of Morpheus8 may start to appear within the first few days after treatment. Results will continue to appear with time and are even more noticeable over the following weeks and months. To keep your results looking new and fresh longer, it is important to take care of your skin by using sunscreen and moisturizer.
