What Is Morpheus8 Treatment?

Morpheus8 is a skin-tightening treatment that will rejuvenate your skin appearance. This minimally invasive treatment combines the power of micro-needling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to enhance the skin. 

Micro-needling revitalises the skin by creating tiny punctures on the skin’s surface using a device equipped with fine needles. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing response. This leads to an increase in collagen and elastin production.

RF energy refreshes the skin by penetrating the deeper layers and generating heat. This heat causes the restructuring of existing collagen and stimulates the production of new collagen. This results in a firmer skin appearance with a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

The Morpheus8 treatment uses a handheld device with tiny, coated needles that penetrate the skin’s surface. As the needles penetrate the skin, they also emit RF energy. This leads to improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles and lines, and skin tightening.

What Is Morpheus8 Used For?

The uses for this treatment are an important part of what you should know about Morpheus8. Morpheus8 is a versatile treatment that can treat a variety of skin concerns. 

Below we highlight the uses for Morpheus8 treatment: 

Skin Resurfacing

Uneven skin texture, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars can leave the skin looking aged, textured, or blemished. 

Morpheus8 offers an effective approach to skin resurfacing. The micro-damage from the micro-needling process and heat generation from the RF energy stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. These two proteins are crucial for achieving a smooth skin surface. 

Collagen helps keep the skin firm and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Elastin ensures the skin maintains its flexibility and resilience. The dual-action stimulation of these proteins contributes to a firmer and smoother skin appearance.

Skin Tightening

The natural production of collagen and elastin in our skin decreases as we age. This leads to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity. Morpheus8 is one of the best skin tightening treatments

Morpheus8’s unique combination of micro-needling and RF energy tightens the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production. An increase in collagen fills out the skin, giving the skin a smoother and tighter appearance. The increase in elastin enhances the flexibility of our skin, allowing the skin to keep its firmness.

Fat Reduction

Not only will Morpheus8 improve skin texture and tightness, but this treatment is also able to reduce fat in the target areas. After the treatment, you can enjoy a more contoured and refined skin appearance.

The secret behind Morpheus8’s fat reduction capability lies in its use of RF energy. The RF energy generates heat that penetrates the skin’s deeper layers, reaching into the subcutaneous fat. This heat disrupts fat cells, causing them to break down for the body to then remove. 

Where Can You Use Morpheus8?

The most common use for Morpheus8 is to treat areas on the face, particularly around the eyes, mouth, and cheeks. It is also used for treating the neck and décolletage, which are areas often prone to sagging and wrinkles.

Morpheus8 is not limited to the face and neck. You can use this treatment on the abdomen, arms, legs, and hands. The versatility of Morpheus8 makes it an ideal treatment for enhancing your skin appearance. 

When to Get Morpheus8?

We are often asked what age should you get Morpheus8. This skin tightening treatment is suitable for any adult, no matter the age. 

Many people often start to see the first signs of ageing in their late 20s to early 30s, such as fine lines and decreased skin elasticity. Starting Morpheus8 treatments at this stage can help delay the ageing process, maintaining a youthful appearance for longer.

Morpheus8 is also effective for those in their 40s, 50s and beyond who may be experiencing more advanced signs of ageing, such as deeper wrinkles and sagging skin. This treatment will provide effective results that will refresh your skin. 

When you decide to get the treatment will depend on various factors, such as your specific skin concerns or goals. You can consult with a qualified professional who can assess your skin condition and provide personalised advice on when to get this treatment.

How Long Does Morpheus8 Last?

Morpheus8 offers remarkable results in skin revitalisation. You will notice an improvement in your skin appearance a few days after your treatment, with enhanced results appearing 3 weeks later. These include improved skin texture, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, enhanced skin elasticity, and the reduction of stubborn fat deposits. 

The promotion of collagen and elastin from the Morpheus8 treatment will lead to continued improvements for the following 3 months. You can expect these results to last between 12 to 18 months. 

The effects of Morpheus8 are not permanent due to the natural ageing process. Maintenance treatments will keep the skin looking its best over time. You can have a maintenance treatment once or twice a year, depending on your specific needs.

How Many Morpheus8 Treatments Will I Need?

The number of treatments needed will depend on the individual’s skin condition and the desired results. For minor skin concerns, a single treatment will provide noticeable results. Complex skin concerns may need 2 – 3 treatments to achieve optimal results. 

Will the Morpheus8 Treatment Hurt?

The Morpheus8 treatment can include mild discomfort. Most patients describe the sensation during treatment as a mild warmth or slight pricking sensation on the skin. While individual pain tolerance varies, the procedure is generally well-tolerated. 

You can apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area before the procedure. This numbing cream helps to reduce any potential discomfort. You can ask your practitioner for their recommendation for making the treatment comfortable. 

HIFU and Morpheus8 Treatment

Many of our patients ask if they can combine HIFU and Morpheus8 treatments. High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) and Morpheus8 are both innovative non-surgical skin tightening treatments. These two treatments use different methods to enhance the skin’s appearance. 

HIFU uses focused ultrasound energy to target the deeper layers of the skin. This heating stimulates collagen and elastin production, resulting in a lifting and tightening effect. This treatment is particularly effective for treating sagging skin on the face and neck. 

Morpheus8 combines micro-needling with RF energy to rejuvenate the skin. This treatment targets the skin’s surface and the underlying layers. This reduces fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin texture and tone, and tightens the skin.

Choosing between HIFU and Morpheus8 depends on your skin concerns and goals. You can combine these two treatments to achieve optimal results. A professional consultation can help determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs.
