What is it?
RF microneedling combines the use of extremely thin needles and LED lights that emit radiofrequency waves to generate thermal energy. This technique involves provoking the skin and activating its restorative mechanism, while also promoting the natural production of collagen within the body.
Morpheus8 is a cutting-edge treatment that combines microneedling and radiofrequency technology. It effectively addresses wrinkles, scars, and uneven skin texture while promoting collagen production for improved skin tone and tightness. Its versatility makes it a popular choice for non-surgical skin rejuvenation.
Frequently Asked Questions
Morpheus8, combining microneedling and radiofrequency, is primarily utilized on the face and neck to address various concerns like deep wrinkles, lines, jowls, double chin, turkey neck, thick neck, undereye bags, smoker’s wrinkles, crow’s feet, large pores, crepey skin, and forehead wrinkles. Moreover, it can be applied to other body areas such as the stomach, legs, and arms to reduce crepey skin, tighten the skin, and minimize fat. Additionally, Morpheus8 is employed for the treatment of hyperhidrosis, specifically targeting excessive sweating under the arms.
Following your Morpheus8 treatment, it is normal to experience swelling, redness, and potential bruising as the controlled injury initiates the rejuvenation of collagen and elastin. These effects typically subside within 3-5 days. During the initial 3 days, you will receive instructions on the recommended products to apply to the treated area. After this period, you can use camouflage makeup to conceal any remaining redness. On days 4-5, you may notice slight flakiness of the skin. Within 5-7 days, your skin should return to its normal appearance. While you can resume work the day after the procedure, many clients who have professional obligations prefer scheduling their treatment on Thursday evening or Friday to allow for recovery without makeup over the weekend. By Monday, they are typically ready to resume their regular activities.
Microneedling has a multitude of benefits which included reducing the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. It also improves skin elasticity, smoothens uneven skin tone, reduces enlarged pores, and even excessive sweating in some cases.
Patients instantly notice a certain glow to their skin after the procedure. However, more apparent changes such as even skin tone and skin tightening occur within a week or two. As the procedure encourages collagen and elastin production, these results will last and continue to hold for about 6 months.
