You may have heard about Morpheus8 or even seen it on the latest season of Skin Decisions on Netflix. But what is this treatment and why is it currently so popular.
Matter of fact is that Morpheus8 has been around for about three years and the technology (along with the popularity) is only improving. Even Kim Kardashian had to try it out for herself.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks will reorganise themselves in a natural anti-aging process leading to skin tightening. In short, Morpheus8 combines radio-frequency (heat) with microneedling to remodel and contour the face and body in a more natural way.
How Quickly Do You See Results?
You should know that this treatment is not a 24-hour solution. Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically after three weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
With that being said, depending on your Morpheus8 treatment regime, you can expect to have between 1-3 sessions for maximum result.
What Makes Morpheus8 Unique?
Morpheus8 can be used on any areas that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal. You are not limited to only the leg-area or stomach, but Morpheus8 has proven to be successful in tightening areas like the eyes, face and even knees.
This course of treatment is ideal for patients who would like to improve their appearance without undergoing laser or surgical procedures. The innovative technology also reduces the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is a side effect of some resurfacing techniques. Minimal downtime is experienced (3-4 days of redness), compared to weeks of swelling and pain with a more invasive treatment.
Apart from skin tightening, Morpheus8 can also be used to reduce the appearance of acne and acne scars, stretch marks and enlarged pores.
Last, but definitely not least, this treatment is for any skin type and can be used any time of the year.
