What is Morpheus 8?
Morpheus 8 is one of many anti-aging treatments that achieve youthful, plump-looking skin.
It is a form of microneedling treatment that also uses radiofrequency. Microneedling on its own is known to be a highly effective treatment for jumpstarting collagen in the skin. Adding radiofrequency technology only increases the efficacy of the treatment.
Microneedling involves puncturing the skin, to create tiny “micro-injuries” that then heal. This healing process involves the production of collagen and elastin, which are the two components that make the skin look youthful.
In other words, microneedling jumpstarts collagen and elastin production by triggering the skin’s natural healing process through artificial “injuries” that do not harm the surface of the skin.
This process helps lift the skin, helping to smooth and tighten the tissue, which tends to become loose over time as our skin ages.
Now that we understand microneedling, how does radio frequency enhance the results of this treatment?
Radiofrequency is delivered through the microneedling needles, heating the deeper layers of the skin that cannot be reached with traditional microneedling.
This added heat and the activation of deeper layers of the skin are what make the results of Morpheus greater.
While traditional microneedling treatments are mainly used on the face where signs of aging are most prevalent, Morpheus can be used to treat the face, as well as other parts of the body.
Because Morpheus can penetrate deep into the subdermal layers, it can target fat and work to remodel and contour the face and body.
The Benefits of Morpheus 8
Morpheus 8 has proven to deliver amazing results by counteracting the aging process in both the face and body.
The main benefit is that Morpheus can be used on the body as well as the face, which differentiates it from other microneedling treatments.
It also can be used on all skin types safely. While it heats the skin, it is not like laser treatment, which works better on lighter skin tones.
Instead, Morpheus can be used on anyone without doing any damage to the skin.
Morpheus can target several different signs of aging and counter-act them to provide youthful-looking skin.
First and foremost, it can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. By boosting collagen and elastin production, the skin becomes smoother and more plump. For similar reasons, Morpheus can be used to tighten loose or sagging skin on the body.
It can also help reduce fat volume in the face and neck, helping to contour the face and body.
Additionally, Morpheus helps treat scarring, skin discoloration, and the appearance of stretch marks as it triggers the skin’s healing process.
About Morpheus Treatment: Procedure and Cost
The Morpheus treatment process is quick, easy, and requires no post-treatment downtime!
Since Morpheus is non-invasive, there is no need for any recovery. This is one of its many benefits.
At Laureate LA, we will evaluate your trouble areas and listen to your skincare goals before we develop a treatment plan for you.
Before the Morpheus treatment, we will apply numbing cream to reduce any discomfort, although the treatment should be virtually painless.
The Morpheus treatment will last about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated.
For the best results, some clients can opt for up to three treatments. However, this depends on the goals of the client.
One should feel only slight discomfort during treatment, as the needles are very sharp and fine, making the punctures less noticeable. It will feel as if the skin is being pricked and then a warm sensation from the radiofrequency technology.
After the treatment is over, the skin will be slightly swollen but this inflammation will go down quickly. It will likely feel like a minor sunburn and you will be left with some minor bleeding right after the treatment from the punctures.
Post-treatment, be sure to use a good moisturizer and apply sunscreen. But, we recommend you always apply sunscreen no matter what treatments you receive!
You will see results from your Morpheus treatment immediately! And, as your skin heals and produces collagen, you will notice even greater results. In about 6-12 weeks, you will see amazing results!
