As we age, our bodies produce less of these substances, leading to the development of wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin. Enter Morpheus8: A new fractional micro-needling device that can help to improve the appearance of the skin.

Ready to look younger – without surgery? Morpheus8 is here.

Morpheus8 is a new procedure that can help to combat the signs of aging. Using micro needling and radiofrequency energy, morpheus8 can stimulate collagen production and improve the appearance of the skin. In addition, deep heating of the tissue can help to tighten and sculpt the face and body, providing a more youthful appearance. Some concerns Morpheus8 can address include:

  • Wrinkles
  • Skin laxity
  • Crepey skin
  • Stretch marks
  • Fine lines
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Large pores
  • Acne scars

While morpheus8 is not a replacement for surgery, it can provide significant results with minimal risks and downtime.

How does Morpheus8 work?

Morpheus8 is a device that uses a mix of radiofrequency technology and micro-needling to stimulate the production of collagen. The skin’s deeper layers are targeted, creating natural anti-aging results. With the help of Morpheus8 in Austin, saggy skin can be tightened and underlying fatty tissue melted away.

The treatment is minimally invasive and uses a set of micro pins to renew the skin’s deeper layer. People with different skin types will safely benefit from this treatment. Darker skin tones can be treated with minimal chance of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Any parts of the body and face that exhibit acne scarring, discoloration, excess skin, stretch marks, or wrinkles are ideal for treatment. The neck, face, and abdomen are commonly treated areas.

What are the benefits of microneedling with Morpheus8?

The Morpheus8 procedure achieves its results using microneedles and fractionated radiofrequency (RF) energy.

  • Morpheus8 is an outpatient procedure and typically takes about one and a half hours to complete based on the skin area’s size to be treated. It does not require general or local anesthesia, only topical numbing cream. 
  • After the numbing cream has been applied to the treatment area and has taken effect, the Morpheus8 handpiece is guided over the treatment region. The micro-pins safely pierce the superficial skin layer at various depths. These micro-pins deliver RF energy to the underlying tissues.
  • Micro-needling creates microscopic, controlled wounds in the skin layers, triggering the skin’s natural healing response and creating new collagen protein.
  • Fractionated RF energy rebuilds collagen protein and increases collagen production in the skin tissues. When collagen is remodeled and more collagen is created, this effectively improves skin elasticity, reducing wrinkles and tightening the skin.

Aftercare for Morpheus8

Ice packs can be used to control any swelling that may occur after the procedure is completed. Patient downtime and recovery time is very minimal. Patients may conduct their normal activities after the procedure is completed. Makeup can be applied within one to two days after this treatment.

It is important for patients to use broad-spectrum sunscreen daily and to stay away from direct sun exposure since the skin will temporarily be more prone to sun damage. Patients should also moisturize the treatment region regularly.
