WHAT IS MOPRHEUS8
Morpheus8 is a comprehensive, non-surgical, micorneedling tool that elevates skin tightness through its innovative radiofrequency component. It addresses a spectrum of full-body concerns, including sagging skin, scars, uneven skin texture, deep lines, creases, sagging jowls, enlarged pores, stretch marks, and cellulite.
ARE YOU A CANDIDATE?
Ineligible candidates are those who are currently pregnant or breastfeeding, have a pacemaker, and/or have an active skin condition like eczema.
People who are interested in this treatment are usually aiming to correct concerns such as aging, scars, and photo damage.
HOW IT'S DONE:
Morpheus8’s advanced fractional device offers programmable penetration depth and energy delivery, targeting fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and overall skin tone. Its 24 coated pins delicately penetrate subdermal tissue, coagulating fat and contracting connective tissue for a transformative effect. Simultaneously, directional RF (radiofrequency) energy generates heating in the dermis, ensuring a comprehensive solution for your skin concerns.
RESULTS, RECOVERY, FREQUENCY
You can expect a 1-2 day recovery time with Morpheus 8, however, there is no downtime required. The length of your result is dependent upon your lifestyle. For example, patients who lead a healthy lifestyle and protect their skin from the sun will enjoy their tighter, healthier appearance for the long-term.
To achieve the best results, we recommend 2-3 sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
