Morpheus8 Face is a non-invasive treatment designed to tighten skin and remodel deeper tissues. This treatment involves a combination of microneedling with radio frequency thermal energy for the treatment of a wide variety of skin conditions including uneven skin tone and texture, mild to moderate skin laxity, hyperpigmentation and fine lines and wrinkles. Morpheus8 face has also been demonstrated to be highly effective in the treatment of acne scarring. Many types of acne scars in darker-skinned patients are not suitable for treatment with laser resurfacing due to the risk of developing scarring. Morpheus8 face can be safely used for acne scarring treatment in all skin types.
Morpheus8 Face has patented technology with specially designed insulated needle tips that effectively penetrate the surface of the skin to a deeper level compared with older types of microneedling treatment. The treatment does not involve damaging the superficial skin layer unlike laser resurfacing. Morpheus8 face can also be used to target stubborn fat in the chin and neck to get rid of a double chin. The specially adjustable microneedles precisely target superficial fat cells with the application of radio-frequency energy to precisely sculpt and contour the skin.
Morpheus8 Face is most commonly used to treat the face, neck and jawline but can also be used to treat the body spot of Morpheus8 body treatment.
The microneedling component of Morpheus8 face allows effective targeting of radio frequency energy to the deeper layers of the dermis and subcutaneous fat using specialised micro needles. The repetitive micro trauma to the skin enables stimulation of a wound healing cascade resulting in the production of new collagen and elastin. This leads to the generation of new, healthy, and revitalised skin with results lasting many years.
What to expect during Morpheus8 Face treatment?
Morpheus 8 Face treatment takes between 30 minutes and 90 minutes to perform depending on whether you have a partial face or full face and neck treatment. Your specialist practitioner will first apply a topical local anaesthetic cream to the treatment areas to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. In some cases, local anaesthetic may be injected as part of a nerve block if a deeper and more intense treatment is planned.
Treatment will then commence with the specialised Morpheus8 applicator applied to the skin to deliver precise RF energy using tiny micro-holes produced by the micro needles. Morpheus8 face is a depth adjustable treatment which means that certain areas of the skin can be treated with deeper penetration. Areas with bony prominences such as the forehead may require a more superficial application of microneedling. Treatment is always tailored to the individual patient and skin concern.
Once the Morpheus8 face treatment is complete, it is normal to have tiny pinpoint areas of bleeding from the microneedling. Your face may also appear initially red with a mild amount of swelling or bruising. There may be areas of red-coloured small bumps where Morpheus8 face was applied. These are all temporary side effects which should settle over the first 24 to 48 hours after treatment.
The healing time after Morpheus8 Face is very quick with little or no downtime. Having said that, we would avoid having the treatment prior to a major event such as a wedding for a minimum of three days after your treatment. You should also avoid excessive sun exposure and wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 50.
Results of Morpheus8 face will become visible after 3 to 5 days of the treatment. The best results after Morpheus8 will be visible after completing your course of three treatments. The quality of the skin will continue to improve over the first 3 to 6 months after having Morpheus8 face. Many patients come to see us for treatment of loose skin or skin laxity. Morpheus eight face produces skin tightening benefits that will be visible roughly four weeks after your treatment.
