Who is a good candidate for Morpheus8 for treating acne scars?
With Morpheus8, you can re-model and smooth damaged and uneven skin using radiofrequency (RF) and fractional medical microneedling. The patented handpiece will be moved over the targeted area of the skin during the treatment. By making micro-wounds in the subdermal layer, Morpheus8 penetrates into the skin.
To enhance the healing process, the handpiece emits RF energy waves as this action takes place. As a result of the combined technology, a series of naturally occurring healing processes occur; the same process occurs when your skin sustains a wound. Regeneration of cells and the formation of new tissues – such as collagen – occurs quickly.
At Renouveau MedSpa, you can reduce the appearance of scars with a course of treatments, even completely and permanently removing them.
Following Morpheus8 acne scar treatment, you may experience some minor redness and inflammation for about three days. Because of this, many of our patients schedule their treatment for a Thursday or Friday to allow for healing over the weekend so they can return to work on Monday feeling refreshed and energized. You do not have to spend time at home recovering or resting with Morpheus8, since there is no ‘clinical’ downtime. There will be some cosmetic downtime after your treatment, so you may wish to avoid any social events during that time.
You will receive some topical anesthetic cream to numb the area before treatment. If there is any discomfort, this should ease it. Although the RF heat energy may warm the deeper layers of the skin, it can still cause a warm, prickling sensation for several hours following treatment. Experiencing these sensations is totally normal, and they shouldn’t cause pain.
Your practitioner may recommend one to two Morpheus8 treatments for minor acne scarring. In the case of moderate to severe acne scarring, up to four treatments may be required, separated at least a month apart to allow your skin to heal. During your pre-treatment consultation and skin assessment, your practitioner will create a plan with you to meet your specific skin care goals and needs.
Teenage or adult acne can result in acne scarring due to a compromised healing process and inflammation. The healing process of a wound includes the regeneration of cells and the rebuilding of new skin and connective tissues. Among these connective tissues is collagen, which plays a crucial role in restoring the integrity of your skin. It is possible, however, to develop sunken (atrophic) scars following acne because collagen production can ‘lag’ during the healing process.
The boxcar scar, the ice pick scar, and the rolling scar are all common names for these scars. A mistaken over-production of collagen can also lead to hypertrophic scars, which are elevated scars. A keloid scar is a scar that becomes larger and more pronounced than the original scar, which can be tricky to treat and requires careful monitoring by a medically qualified skin expert.
Any individual who has suffered from acne scarring and wishes to have it cleared up may benefit from Morpheus8 treatment at Renouveau MedSpa.
