Pre Treatment Guide For Morpheus8
What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is fractionated radio frequency microneedling – a new generation collagen and skin remodeling treatment for face and body. It’s a safe, effective, and non-surgical treatment for full body skin resurfacing, skin tightening, and fat reduction of stubborn areas.
What does Morpheus8 do?
Using targeted radio-frequency (RF) energy to remodel and rebuild collagen, Morpheus8 can be used to treat skin concerns on both the face and body, including the abdomen, legs, buttocks, arms, hands, jowls, chest, and neck. The resulting effect is plumper, firmer, tighter, and smoother skin in as few as 1 to 2 sessions, though 3 or 4 treatments are most often needed for the best results.
Tiny needles penetrate the skin with targeted depth and heat up the tissue using RF with targeted energy to stimulate collagen or mold fat under the skin to obtain results for tightening and lifting the skin or contouring the sub-mental or other body areas.
How To Prepare for Morpheus8 Treatment
- Stop use of retinol and glycolic/chemical exfoliants at least 5 days before.
- Start a good skin hydrating regimen a few days before your appointment. Hyaluronic acid is recommended.
- Avoid extreme sun exposure at least 1 week before to avoid skin sensitivity.
- On the day of your treatment, shower as normal and clean your face and neck, but do not apply makeup, powders, lotions, oils or any other products to the treatment area.
What To Expect During Your Morpheus8 Treatment
Before your treatment, topical numbing will be applied to cleansed skin for 50-60 minutes. This is to minimize discomfort during the treatment process. You will be seated in the waiting room or a treatment room during this time. We recommend bringing something to read or work on while you wait.
During the procedure, a handheld device is pressed into the specified area of the skin, allowing microneedles to perforate the skin. Once the microneedles are in place, they generate radiofrequency (RF) waves to penetrate deep into the dermal layer. Since the needles are tiny, most patients tolerate the procedure well. This simple, safe treatment delivers excellent results for all skin types.
