Like other parts of our body, the skin experiences changes as we grow older. Beginning around age twenty-five, it begins to produce less collagen, the protein that gives skin a youthful appearance. We can see the effects of decreased collagen production on our face and body in the form of wrinkles, fine lines, volume loss and sagging.
If you’re searching for an effective, non-surgical way to treat these effects, Morpheus8 may be right for you.
What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is an advanced, cutting-edge microneedling treatment. It’s a noninvasive method of refreshing and re-texturizing the skin.
Morpheus8 involves the use of radiofrequency technology and fractional microneedling, which combine to give patients a more youthful appearance. It effectively addresses wrinkles, sagging, acne scars, sun damage and several other skin issues, with very little downtime or discomfort.
How Does Morpheus8 Work?
The treatment involves the use of microneedles that penetrate the skin with radiofrequency energy. It also gently heats the skin, which helps restore connective tissue and stimulates collagen production. Over time, the treatment leads to tighter, smoother skin. It also improves the look of skin by increasing blood flow and circulation in the area.
But what makes Morpheus8 different from other microneedling procedures is the depth of penetration. Most treatments remain somewhat superficial, but Morpheus8 goes deep into the subdermal layers, with a reach up to 8mm, which means it’s also effective at molding fat.
It’s also incredibly versatile. Many patients choose to treat their faces, but we can treat practically any area of the body. Common treatment sites include:
What Does Morpheus8 Treatment Entail?
Session length depends on the size of the area being treated. In general, patients can expect Morpheus8 treatments to last anywhere from thirty to sixty minutes. In some cases, they may last up to ninety minutes.
During this outpatient procedure, any area to be treated is covered with a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort. A device is then used to deliver radiofrequency energy through micro-pins directly to the skin.
One of the reasons this treatment is so effective is that it is customized to each individual. The device used has tips of varying lengths, which increase or decrease the amount of RF energy that goes into the patient’s skin. The result is a treatment one hundred percent tailored to each person’s skin type and skin concerns.
Despite the use of needles in the procedure, Morpheus8 produces minimal discomfort. Thanks to the numbing cream, patients experience little to no pain. Most people describe feeling a heating sensation and an occasional zap as the micro-needles sweep the skin.
Downtime is minimal, as there is little risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Yet immediately following your treatment, you should see noticeable improvement of the skin. Patients typically return to their normal routines the day after, and makeup use may be resumed the following day as well.
What Results Can You Expect from Morpheus8 Treatment?
Patients use Morpheus8 to address a variety of skin concerns. Aside from reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it can improve the skin in a variety of other ways.
Morpheus8 is effective at treating textural issues, such as enlarged pores or irregular skin tone and texture. It can reduce the appearance of stubborn acne scars, fade stretch marks, and treat sun damage, melasma, sun spots, or rosacea.
Saggy skin can also be targeted with this procedure, which makes Morpheus8 a popular treatment for loose jowls. However, skin laxity on other areas of the body may also be treated. For example, Morpheus8 can help address skin looseness in the knees and elbows, as well as sagginess in the abdomen, inner thighs, and upper arms.
Aside from being such a versatile treatment, our clients love Morpheus8 because it can be used just about anywhere on the body–even in sensitive areas.
Immediately following your session, your skin will appear refreshed and enhanced. You’ll notice a subtle lift, especially in areas with loose skin, and tone and texture will also improve. We also advise patients that they can boost the results of Morpheus8 by exercising regularly and using sun protection daily.
But the best part is that results continue to improve in the weeks and months after treatment. We can thank the radiofrequency technology for these long-lasting results, as it jumpstarts the body’s ability to produce collagen over time. Most patients see changes in their skin that lasts for years to come.
You can also combine Morpheus8 treatment with other aesthetic procedures, which may help achieve even more dramatic results. At UGlow, we work with each individual to devise the best treatment plan for them.
Who Is a Candidate for Morpheus8 Treatment?
Morpheus8 is suitable for all kinds of individuals. Most healthy, non-smoking adults with no underlying health problems can reap the benefits, and even those with sensitive skin can undergo micro needling procedures with no problem.
The exception is in individuals who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have an active skin infection. In this case, you are advised to wait to receive treatment.
Who Chooses Morpheus8 Treatment?
There is no one-size-fits-all patient profile when it comes to the Morpheus8 procedure. However, we do tend to see two different candidate types.
- Patients with visible or advanced signs of aging who want to rejuvenate their skin. These patients include both men and women, typically in the thirty to fifty-five age range.
- Patients with acne or acne scarring that has proven resistant to other treatments, such as oral or topical medication.
Regardless of treatment goals, all UGlow patients undergo a consultation to determine if Morpheus8 is right for them.
How Much Does Morpheus8 Treatment Cost?
The price of Morpheus8 depends on a few different factors, namely the size of the treatment area and the number of sessions needed to achieve the best results.
Most people will see noticeable improvement after just one session, although our patients typically require a series of three sessions to achieve the desired effect. A single session ranges between $550 to $950, which means you can expect to pay somewhere between $1,400 to $2,500 for the full treatment series.
