Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure used by many looking to firm up their skin. This procedure pairs micro-needling with radiofrequency energy to deliver RF energy deep beneath the skin’s surface. The RF energy creates micro lesions, which trigger the body’s natural healing process. Ultimately, Morpheus8 helps promote the skin’s ability to produce collagen and elastin, resulting in firmer skin. 

Why Use Morpheus8?

Those with a variety of skin concerns might benefit from the results associated with Morpheus8. This procedure can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by tightening the skin. Other skin conditions which may benefit from this procedure include uneven skin texture, rough skin, acne scarring, and stretch marks. This procedure can be used anywhere on the body, but it is most commonly used on the face. Those seeking optimal results may need to undergo a series of three sessions. Each session should be spaced about four to six weeks apart. 

How Does Morpheus8 Work?

This procedure uses both micro-needling and radiofrequency energy to rejuvenate the skin. This process uses needles to repeatedly puncture the skin, which causes microtrauma on the skin. The procedure initiates the skin’s natural healing system, resulting in the production of collagen. The process encourages skin cells to turn over and develop new collagen. Over time, the skin becomes much smoother. After multiple treatments, patients experience smoother, more rejuvenated skin. 

How Much Does Morpheus8 Cost?

The average cost of Morpheus8 is $1,800. The price varies depending upon the size of the surface area treated, the dermatologist’s experience, and geographic locations. Since this is considered a cosmetic procedure, health insurance plans do not cover it. 

What are the Pros to Using Morpheus8?

There are many benefits to using Morpheus8 to target troubled skin areas. The procedure is non-invasive and safe for all skin tones. It is a quick treatment that can be conducted during the day and requires little downtime. Local anesthesia or numbing cream is used during the procedure, making it relatively painless. 

What are the Cons of Using Morpheus8? 

There are some cons to using Morpheus8; however, many are minor and side effects are minimal. Keep in mind; it could take several months after the initial treatment to see the procedure’s full results, and regular maintenance treatments are needed to ensure long-lasting results. Additionally, some patients experience side effects, including bumps and discoloration around the treatment site.  

What is Recovery? 

There is no actual downtime when undergoing a Morpheus8 treatment. Patients can expect to see redness, experience itchiness, and have swelling for the first three days post-treatment. Those undergoing treatment on a Friday can look normal by Monday. After the treatment, the technician will give a set of self-care instructions. It is essential to follow those instructions to ensure complete healing of the skin and avoid possible scarring. 

How Soon Will Results Appear? 

Some patients experience results after treatment within a few days of their first treatment. Most patients see some skin tightening within three weeks of their first treatment. Results expected may include more refined lines, improved acne scarring, and skin tightening within one to three months. 

How Long Do Results Last? 

Most patients experience results that last about one year. Because of this, it is essential to have follow-up sessions to enjoy long-term effects. Ongoing treatments help maintain the skin’s ramped-up collagen produced by the Morpheus8 treatment.
