Morpheus8 provides safe, effective, and non-surgical treatment for resurfacing, tightening, and reducing stubborn fat around the body. In order to promote skin tightening and lifting, fractional radiofrequency energy (RF) penetrates deeper into the skin than other microneedling devices due to its minimally invasive properties.
Sagging, wrinkles, and lines can result from skin losing its elasticity as we age. In addition to treating skin concerns on the face, Morpehus8 is also capable of treating skin concerns on the body, such as the abdomen, legs, buttocks, arms, hands, jowls, chest, and neck by using targeted radiofrequency energy. As a result, your skin becomes plumper, firmer, tighter, and smoother within one or two treatments.
Aside from skin tightening, the Morpheus8 is FDA-approved as a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD) that eliminates fat in delicate areas. The device is effective for melting excess fat under the chin, as well as for treating cellulite on thighs and buttocks. The Morpheous8 can also improve postpartum abdominal laxity-similar to a “mommy make-over” without surgery.
Although each individual’s skin is unique, Morpheus8 results begin to show within 3 days and become more noticeable after a month. Up to six months after treatment, you may still see improvements since collagen takes time to fully form. There is no limit to how many treatments you can have, but dermatologists recommend three treatments spaced out 4 to 6 weeks apart for best results.
The results of Morpheus8 are permanent, but you will need to repeat the procedure every 1 to 2 years to maintain them. It is common for clients to return for maintenance treatment after 12 months. Eventually, your skin will lose elasticity and become more prone to wrinkles and sagging due to thinning and loosening collagen and elastin fibers. It is therefore necessary to maintain collagen production on an annual basis.
Typically, topical numbing works well with the Morpheus8 to minimize discomfort. However, if necessary, we can discuss other options with your provider regarding pain management. Depending on the size of the treated area, the treatment usually takes 30 minutes to an hour.
You will receive a local anesthetic cream application 30 to 45 minutes before your treatment. As a result, the treatment process should be as comfortable as possible. Handheld devices are pressed into the skin and microneedles perforate the skin as the device perforates the skin. In order to penetrate deep into the dermal layer, the microneedles generate radiofrequency (RF) waves.
Since the needles are tiny, most patients are able to tolerate the procedure without any problems. It is a simple, safe treatment that delivers excellent results no matter what type of skin you have. It is common for moderate redness and swelling to occur immediately following a procedure, which usually subsides within 2-3 days. In most cases, results are visible a month after treatment. As time passes and with subsequent Morpheus8 treatments, results continue to improve.
A Morpheus8 treatment’s cost will vary depending on the area of the body being treated or if multiple areas are being treated simultaneously. Even though patients can see significant results after their first treatment, some skin issues, such as scarring, may require more than one session. Depending on the size and number of areas being treated, one Morpheus8 session can cost between $900 and $1200.
When Morpheus8 is used consistently and properly, the results can last for years. Radiofrequency produces new collagen and elastin both deep within the skin layers and on the surface, which is one of the most valuable results that make this treatment a long-lasting beauty solution.
