Morpheus8, also known as Morpheus8 microneedling, is an innovative, versatile, and non-surgical skin treatment. With its high level of effectiveness, this procedure can smooth and even out irregularities in skin tone and texture as well as tighten and remodel the skin. Morpheus8’s unique technology combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) heat and can treat areas of the face, neck, and jawline, as well as other areas of the body while addressing cellulite, scars, and stretch marks.
Commonly asked questions about Morpheus8
Before undertaking any procedure, you will want to be confident in your knowledge. Find the details on Morpheus8 here.
1. What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that combines microneedling and radiofrequency technologies to penetrate deep into the skin. Morpheus8 treatment is administered via a handheld device that delivers radiofrequency energy through microneedles into the deep layers of the dermis. The microneedles deliver heat energy to the tissue and target adipose fat, the loose connective tissue beneath the skin. By stimulating the body’s wound healing response into producing collagen and elastin, the body is encouraged to generate healthy skin cell turnover, which in turn, tightens, smooths, and contours the face and body while maintaining results over time.
2. Am I a good candidate for Morpheus8?
Individuals who wish to reverse the signs of facial aging, are in good physical health, and have realistic expectations are ideal candidates for a Morpheus8 treatment. Morpheus8 is a far more advanced and less invasive form of microneedling that can treat a wide range of skin conditions, including the following:
- Fine lines
- Crow’s feet
- Acne scars
- Keloid scars
- Contracture scars
- Sun Damage
- Laugh lines
- Sagging jowls
- Loose skin
- Volume loss in the face
3. How does Morpheus8 work?
Morpheus8 is a device that inserts tiny needles into the dermis at short intervals while delivering a burst of radiofrequency energy. The tiny micro-punctures stimulate a healing response in the skin, promoting collagen and elastin production. The heat generated by the radiofrequency energy heats the collagen fibers, causing them to contract. These two processes encourage collagenesis, which thickens the dermal layers and significantly revitalizes and improves the appearance of the skin.
4. Where can Morpheus8 be used?
The Morpheus8 hand-held device is customized for delivery, allowing treatments to be performed on both larger and smaller, more delicate areas.
Morpheus8 Face Treatment – This treatment is ideal for removing wrinkles and fine lines from the face, as well as evens out discoloration and restores the skin’s youthful complexion in areas such as:
- Around the mouth
- Lower and upper eyelids
Morpheus8 Body Treatment – This treatment is ideal for ridding the body of issues that affect body contour, such as:
- Sagging skin around the thighs & buttocks
- Loose skin around the stomach
5. How is a Morpheus8 treatment performed?
Step One – Anesthetic
A topical anesthetic will be applied to the areas being treated in order to minimize any discomfort.
Step 2 – Morphseus8 Technology
Once the area is numbed, using a fractional technology, Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD), the hand-held Morpheus8 device will gently warm the tissues to contract collagen molecules and stimulate their production, remodeling the skin at the cellular level. The device’s tiny microneedles will gently poke at the dermis without puncturing or damaging it, causing internal vibrations that reanimate dormant skin cells and promote healthy skin cell regeneration.
After the treatment is complete, a smoothing cream or lotion will be applied to the treated areas to aid in the healing process.
6. How long does a Morpheus8 procedure take?
Depending on the size of the target area and the severity of the skin condition being treated with Morpheus8, treatment can take anywhere from fifteen to sixty minutes.
7. What is recovery like after Morpheus8?
Following Morpheus8 treatment, patients typically experience warmth, pinkness, mild aching, and moderate swelling. These symptoms should resolve in two to five days, and patients can return to normal activities.
8. How soon will I see results?
Following Morpheus8 treatment, patients typically notice minor changes in their skin. The most noticeable results occur in three to six months while the skin undergoes the process of collageneis – the remodeling of collagen levels in the skin.
9. How long do results last?
Morpheus8 results in a significant remodeling and tightening of the skin but is not a permanent solution to ceasing the aging process. Morpheus8 treatment results can last up to 6 to 12 months, depending on the patient. With regular treatments, the skin will be able to retain its tightness, elasticity, and volume.
10. How much does Morpheus8 cost in Canada?
The cost of a Morpheus8 treatment depends on the severity of the skin condition, along with the length and number of sessions required to treat it. In Canada, the average cost of a Morpheus8 treatment is about $1,750 per session.
11. What are the risks of Morpheus8?
As with any cosmetic treatment, although rare, there are potential risks and side effects including:
- Skin blistering
- Excessive bruising/ redness/ swelling
- Scar/ pigmentation issues
- Allergic reaction to anesthesia
