Morpheus8 is the latest and best microneedling device which also incorporates radiofrequency energy to treat the deeper layers of the skin. It is able to remodel and contour certain areas of the face and body to achieve a smoother and sleeker appearance. Healthy, young skin is naturally supported by microscopic collagen and elastin fibres, running through the deeper layers of the skin, keeping it supple, smooth and well supported. This effect is gradually lost as part of aging, or can be affected prematurely through some other conditions, such as acne. The natural production of these supporting and shaping molecules is stimulated by the Morpheus8, which is how the beneficial results are achieved.
Morpheus8 can be used on any parts of the skin which can benefit from rejuvenation of the sub-dermal tissue. Areas of the face and body affected by wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment. The most commonly treated areas include the face and neck, as well as the abdomen which is beneficial for tightening loose skin with underlying fatty tissue.
Most often, 1-3 sessions will be needed, allowing 4 - 6 weeks between treatments.
Visible results are sometimes seen within a few days, but more usually, noticeable results appear after three weeks or so. Improvements continue for up to three months after treatment.
The Morpheus8’s technology is not affected by skin colour, so it can be used on almost all skin types. Even darker tones can be treated with little risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is a concern with other resurfacing devices.
Downtime is minimal after Morpheus8 treatment. Make-up can be applied 1 to 2 days afterwards. You should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week depending on treatment parameters. Direct sunlight should be avoided during this period and sunscreen is advised as always to help protect the skin from UV damage. You should moisturize the treated area too. Using sunscreen and moisturizer will tend to slow the aging process in future.
