Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DOES MORPHEUS8 WORK?
Morpheus8 is a far reaching fractional RF mechanism for the treatment of fine lines & wrinkles, acne scars, and general uniformization of skin tone. Morpheus8 groundbreaking technology allows it to penetrate into the subdermal tissue, breaking down undesired fat, while contracting connective tissue to tighten and rejuvenate the skin.
The Morpheus8 delivers leveled and safe results for all skin types and tones. It also reduces the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is a common side effect of such skin treatments.
WHICH AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH MORPHEUS8?
Several different areas of the body can benefit from Morpheus8 subdermal renewal approach. Most commonly, the treatment shows great results on facial areas that have acne scarring, discoloration, or wrinkles. It also works great correcting sagging skin in the neck and jowl. And there are many patients that seek Morpheus8 treatments for the abdominal area, as this procedure is beneficial for tightening any skin that is loose because of underlying fat tissue.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE MORPHEUS8 TREATMENT?
First and foremost, a topical anaesthetic will be applied to your skin - 30 min prior to the procedure - to make things more comfortable. Then, a hand-held device will be placed over the treatment areas and you may feel some tingling and heating in your skin.
The session usually takes less than half an hour for a full face and neck. You can expect to experience some redness after the procedure and feel your skin a bit rough for a few days. Sometimes there is even a minimal peeling side effect, which is normal and expected.
HOW IS THE AFTERCARE OF A MORPHEUS8 TREATMENT?
Since Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive procedure, the downtime is very short when compared to other treatments. It is important to keep the treated area moisturized and sunscreen should be diligently applied to it after the procedure. It is also recommended to wait a couple days before using makeup again.
You can expect some mild swelling, red marks and microdots on your skin for a few days after the procedure. But these symptoms should disappear within the first week without requiring much tending to it.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?
It varies greatly per patient, but some difference can usually be seen within a few days after the treatment. Although more significant results will likely appear after 3 weeks. As the process of collagen and elastin production, expected to tighten the area, naturally takes longer to function. On the bright side, you can expect improvements to continue up to three months after treatment.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED?
The amount of sessions required will depend on the severity of your skin’s problem and individual response to treatment. Overall, 1-3 sessions, 4-6 weeks apart are recommended. During the consultation, your doctor will draw a customized plan for your treatment and then discuss the number of sessions required for your own case and goals.
