Youthful skin is maintained by specific building blocks. In order to postpone or correct the signs of aging, such as nasolabial folds and jowls, it is essential that we consider what those building blocks are. We offer treatments that have been proven to reach deep beneath the epidermis where the skin’s foundation begins. Morpheus8 is one of the most advanced skin tightening and toning methods we have seen to date. We are proud to provide this technology for patients interested in meaningful facial rejuvenation without surgery.
WHAT IS MORPHEUS8?
Morpheus8 is a microneedling device that utilizes radiofrequency energy to remodel and contour the face and body via subdermal adipose remodeling. This fractional treatment penetrates deep into the skin and fat for a smoother and sleeker appearance. Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive bipolar radiofrequency (RF) tissue treatment designed for fractional coagulation of subcutaneous tissue. Morpheus8 provides an interchangeable portfolio of microneedling tips to deliver customizable fractional treatments.
Morpheus8 is a new microneedling treatment developed to be more effective than other types of microneedling treatment. Designed by In Mode Aesthetics, a leading manufacturer in the radiofrequency technology arena, Morpheus8 is the only device that combines radiofrequency with the microneedling technique. On its own, microneedling provokes a healing response in which collagen proliferation increases. By inserting radiofrequency energy to tissue approximately 4mm deep, this device prompts tissue remodeling that includes thickening and tightening.
WHO ARE CANDIDATES FOR MORPHEUS8?
Morpheus8 helps improve the appearance of:
- Excess fat in the face and neck
- Mild sagging and jowling in the face and neck
- Uneven or rough skin texture
- Acne scarring and other scars on the face or body
- Deep lines and creases
- Sun damage
- Enlarged Pores
- Stretch Marks
WHAT CAN MORPHEUS8 TREAT?
Morpheus8 is an excellent solution for facial rejuvenation because it can achieve multiple corrections simultaneously. Some of the concerns we address with this radiofrequency technique include:
- Fat accumulation beneath the chin
- Mild softening and jowling at the jawline
- Sun damage
- Acne scarring and other scarring
- Stretch marks
- Poor skin texture
- Enlarged pores
- Deep lines and creases
WHAT AREAS CAN MORPHEUS 8 BE USED ON?
Treatment is most commonly performed on the lower face and neck areas. However, Morpheus8 can improve any area in which subdermal adipose remodeling is needed.
HOW DOES TREATMENT WORK?
We conduct Morpheus8 treatment using a local anesthetic to decrease the sensation of both the microneedles and radiofrequency energy penetration. After the topical numbing cream has desensitized the skin, we begin treatment using a small handheld applicator. The tip of the applicator has several tiny needles that are powered with radiofrequency via the device platform. The treating clinician places the applicator against the skin for a few seconds while energy is inserted through the needles. The applicator is then removed from the surface and placed onto the adjacent area. The motion is somewhat like a stamping technique rather than moving the applicator across the skin.
WHY CHOOSE MORPHEUS8?
In a standard microneedling treatment, a small needle-clad applicator is moved across the skin. Microneedles may be automated to move vertically to “stamp” the skin as the handpiece passes over the epidermis. The needles on the applicator reach a depth of approximately 2mm. After microneedling, a technician may apply a nourishing serum such as platelet-rich plasma or a vitamin concoction to address a particular concern. Morpheus8 is immediately different because its needles reach a depth of 4mm. This alone is significant because change is stimulated within the skin’s foundational structure. Additional benefits stem from the inclusion of radiofrequency, the energy that gently heats subdermal adipose tissue for more profound tightening and toning.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
Morpheus8 begins to stimulate change immediately after the first treatment. Depending on the extent of improvement a patient desires, a series of 2 to 4 treatments may be considered. It is our intent to recommend only what a patient needs to reach their desired outcome. We conduct a thorough consultation and skin assessment to fully understand each person’s needs.
