What Is MORPHEUS8?
Morpheus8 gets its name because of its ability to morph the skin’s building blocks to contour one’s face and body. When we are young, collagen levels are high and our skin is soft, smooth, and firm. Collagen is instrumental in helping skin cells renew and repair themselves as well as retaining moisture. As a person ages, their body produces less collagen. The loss of collagen results in the common signs of aging including the development of wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of skin elasticity. While collagen loss is a natural part of aging, Morpheus can help reverse the signs of aging and turn back the hands of time.
- Deep and safe fractional treatment penetrating 4000 microns with an additional thermal profile of 1000+ microns.
- Extremely uniform effect, Safe and effective for both the face and body.
- Non-surgical and minimally invasive.
- Little to no thermal damage to dermis.
- Safe on skin type up to and including Fitzpatrick VI with little risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) common with other resurfacing methods.
- Minimal to no downtime.
What can it treat?
Morpheus works by stimulating collagen and elastin production in the tissue and skin treated. The device targets the deep layers of your skin, delivers a controlled injury (micro-needling) with RF (radiofrequency) energy, coagulates fat, breaks down old cellular matrices, and tightens and lifts loose skin and connective tissue as a result of thermal contraction. As your skin heals, new collagen and elastin fibers are formed.
Face and body
This sub-dermal adipose remodeling device contours the face to make it look thinner and younger. It also can be used on the body.
This fractional skin treatment stimulates the production of collagen in the underlying layers of the dermis. It can be used on most body parts with the most popular being the lower face and neck where acne, discoloration, and wrinkles exist.
Darker skin tones
Unlike other resurfacing methods, the Morpheus8 has minimal risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation. Patients should expect little to no thermal damage to the skin. (Can treat skin type VI)
how quickly will I see results?
New collagen growth can take approximately four to 12 weeks to occur. Results should be expected as the skin heals over the following 3 – 4 weeks. Optimal results are usually seen after 3 – 4 treatments, each scheduled several weeks apart. Your provider can let you know how many sessions are recommended to meet your cosmetic goals.
what is the benefit of fractionated energy?
Fractionated RF energy is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen and fat. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime.
can anyone use morpheus8?
The benefit of Morpheus8’s color blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types. The unique properties allow even darker tones to be treated.
How long does Morpheus8 last?
The results of Morpheus8 can last up to 12 to 18 months. Morpheus can cause permanent and lasting results that withstand the test of time. With the proper treatment plan and annual maintenance treatments, patients can sustain ongoing collagen production and a major reduction in skin laxit
what is the benefit of rf energy?
RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalize the collagen. The treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance. The demand for minimally invasive solutions to avoid traditional operative treatment continues to increase. RF technology has emerged as an effective method to safely tighten skin and reduce underlying adipose tissue. As our armamentarium expands, we have the opportunity to treat large portions of the population who were previously considered premature or borderline candidates for excisional operations. In our experience, combination RF technology (RF micro needling and bipolar RF) advances and broadens our ability to achieve tissue retraction that does not reliably occur with other energy-based devices and liposuction alone.
