We all know that our bodies undergo various changes as we age, and with our skin being the largest organ, there’s no exception.
While we embrace the natural process of aging as a positive journey, we also recognize the importance of looking and feeling our best during this process. This can boost our self-confidence and improve our mental well-being.
It’s also important to note that loose skin can occur in other situations, such as significant weight loss.
Morpheus8 comes into play at this point. But what is Morpheus8, and how does it achieve the incredible results as seen below?
In this blog post, we’ll dissect what Morpheus8 treatment is, how it works and what to expect before and after treatment. Let’s dive in.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a non-surgical procedure that combines radio frequency technology and microneedling. Using the Morpheus8 device, generated thermal energy is delivered to the skin to enhance skin tightening and rejuvenation.
The amazing thing about Morpheus8 is that it doesn’t involve surgery to get results, making it an excellent option if you want to avoid surgical procedures that often result in scarring and require longer recovery times. It’s also great if you’ve previously had surgery but have concerns about loose skin.
While its primary purpose is skin tightening, Morpheus8 can also improve skin texture. So, the question remains: how does Morpheus8 achieve these impressive results?
How Does Morpheus8 Work?
Morpheus8 accomplishes skin tightening through the application of low-frequency electromagnetic waves. These waves generate controlled thermal heat at specific depths within the layers of the skin, initiating a healing response.
While healing, the skin produces new collagen, elastin, and fresh skin cells. These things are crucial for making your skin firmer and healthier.
What’s cool about Morpheus8 is that it can do many different things. For example, research has shown it’s good at reducing cellulite. It can also work on small, sensitive areas and make your face look more defined.
Unlike laser treatments, where you have to find out what laser is best for your skin type, the best part with Morpheus8 is that it’s safe for all skin types, no matter what type of Fitzpatrick skin type you have; it’s safe for everyone.
What is Morpheus8 Used For?
Morpheus8 is flexible and can be used on different parts of the body, including the face, chest, arms, abdomen, and even knees.
Studies have shown that Morpheus8 is helpful and not risky for the following conditions:
- Loose skin
- Acne scars or other scars
- Fine lines
- Overall skin texture
How Long Do Morpheus8 Results Last?
As a Morpheus8 treatment is considered to be a very thorough procedure, patients can expect the results to last for several years.
Over time, non-surgical treatments such as the Evoke, Forma V and Fractora can be used to maintain the results of the Morpheus8.
What To Know Before Morpheus8
Before your treatment, our team will review your medications and medical history. Based on the scope of the procedure, our consultant may recommend that you stop taking certain medications before the treatment. During your consultation, your consultant will also go over your treatment goals and desired outcomes.
What To Know After Morpheus8
Following your Morpheus8 treatment, you can expect to recover in 3-5 days (could be up to 7 in some cases) as minor swelling and redness resolve.
During your recovery, keep these in mind:
- Try not to touch your face too much.
- Change your bed sheets, pillowcases, and towels.
- If you want to use makeup, make sure to clean your makeup brushes and sponges really well.
- Stay away from hot, steamy water.
- Keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
- Follow the specific post-treatment instructions your treatment provider gives you because they may be tailored to your personal medical history and age.
