Morpheus 8 procedure works by skin tightening and toning, rejuvenation, and collagen regeneration. Microneedling creates small punctures and wounds on the skin, which stimulate the skin’s healing process. Combining microneedling with radio-frequency energy makes the tissues detect even more damage, and the heat generated from this triggers rapid collagen production and cell renewal.
Treatment begins with local anesthesia or topical anesthesia in the treatment area. Once the area has been prepared, the Morpheus8 device is systematically placed over the entire area, delivering radiofrequency energy through tiny needle-like pins. Using these pins, the radio frequency energy can reach and heat deeper layers of skin and tissue, stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin for tighter, smoother skin. The treatment typically takes an hour or less, depending on the size of the area to be treated.
This procedure can be beneficial to individuals who want to enhance the look and feel of their skin without the need for downtime.
Some tightening will be evident immediately after treatment. New collagen and elastin formation begins after about 4 weeks, becomes most apparent from 3 to 6 months after treatment, and continues for about a year.
