Turn Back the Clock on Your Age with Morpheus8

If you are searching for a cosmetic procedure that can turn back the clock on your skin, then Morpheus8 is just what you need. The Morpheus8 is an attachment for the revolutionary device EmpowerRF. EmpowerRF is a new, safe, and effective solution delivering life-changing technologies for women’s wellness. The treatment can make old and dull-looking skin look fresh and supple. It involves an advanced fractional radiofrequency apparatus that goes deeper than other devices.

​The FDA-cleared procedure stands out from similar cosmetic treatments because it is designed to treat more than just the skin. The device directs energy underneath it to contour difficult-to-reach areas such as the jowls.

What You Can Expect During a Treatment

The non-invasive treatment is simple. The doctor will first apply a numbing or local anesthetic cream to the target area to reduce your discomfort. You may have to wait half an hour or 45 minutes for it to take effect. If the pain is too much to bear, please discuss other numbing options with your doctor. A session can range from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the target area.

During the session, the technician will press a handheld device on specific areas of your skin to allow the microneedles to penetrate. Once the device is in place, it will generate radiofrequency (RF) waves that can go deep into the dermal layer.

The device is small and, for most patients, painless. Plus, it can work on a range of skin types efficiently. You can expect some redness and irritation around the treated area, which is normal and will dissipate in a few days. Expect visible results in a month or so post-treatment, provided you have these treatments as frequently as advised.

What You Can Expect During a Treatment

If you don’t want to undergo an invasive facelift and want to look younger, Morpheus8 is a good alternative. It is the ideal treatment for anyone searching for a procedure that can rewind time on their skin without scarring it. Some of the top benefits of the procedure include the following:

Increases collagen production

After we cross 20 years of age, the dermis produces 1% less collagen each year. That means our skin starts to sag. The treatment coaxes collagen production in the face resulting in a fuller and firmer visage.

Reduces wrinkles and fine lines

The procedure can firm up the skin around your forehead, eyes, and mouth – areas notorious for showing the first signs of aging. This includes fine lines and wrinkles that can otherwise make you look older than you are.

Firms up loose skin

Morpheus8 can lift the loose skin around your chin, neck, and jowls like a facelift. You can also get the treatment to remove excess fat from your bra line, arms, and other areas.

Reduces signs of acne

The cosmetic treatment is well known for reducing signs of acne. It reduces or shuts down oil glands underneath the skin that can cause these breakouts. Morpheus8 can also be used to treat the scars this skin condition can leave behind by up to 50% and make your skin’s texture smoother.

Reduces stretch marks

You can get stretch marks even if you have never gotten pregnant. These can form around the buttocks, thighs, breasts, and other areas if you lose a lot of weight fast. Morpheus8 can eliminate these by breaking up scar tissue. The result is firmer and flexible skin.

Common side effects

The treatment has minimal side effects. Some patients report slight redness, small bloody spots, mild bruising, and swelling in the first 24 hours of a session. Others also report bumps and grid marks. But most of these symptoms dissipate in 24 to 72 hours.

You will feel as if you have mild sunburn right after the treatment, and your skin will feel warm and tight. But there is no need for downtime. Avoid rigorous workouts for the first day, and do not apply makeup for at least two days. Also, remain in the shade as you resume normal work activities.

Make sure that you do not touch the treated areas too much after treatment for at least a day. Touching and pricking can lead to scars and irreparable skin damage. The treatment results are permanent, but you may need to undergo it for one to two years to ensure these last. Most people return in 12 months for maintenance treatment. With time, your skin will lose its elasticity – frequent treatments can maintain healthy collagen production.

Common Treatment Areas

Morpheus8 can be applied to almost any area on the body and shows excellent results. These include:

  • Neck.
  • Thighs.
  • Buttocks.
  • Face.
  • Back.
  • Arms.
  • Underarms.
  • Back.
  • Stomach.

The procedure can also reduce cellulite by targeting the fat underneath, resulting in smoother and younger-looking skin

Best Candidates for Morpheus8

The procedure is ideal for people who have the following:

  1. Deep lines and creases on the face and body.
  2. Excess neck and face fat.
  3. Mild sagging.
  4. Face and neck jowling.
  5. Stretch marks.
  6. Enlarged pores.
  7. Visible sun damage.
  8. Uneven or rough skin.

Some people only need a single treatment to see visible results, but most require maintenance treatments every four to five weeks for the same. Your doctor will first take a look at your skin’s texture, color, and tone during a confidential consultation before guiding you through the process. You may be advised to clean your face with a mild facewash and lukewarm water followed by a gentle moisturizer. If you must go out, use recommended sunscreen to protect your skin.
