Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS MORPHEUS8?
MORPHEUS8 is a minimally invasive facial and body fractional remodeling that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the skin. The treatment targets the deeper layers of the dermis, penetrating subdermal tissue up to 8mm.
HOW DOES MORPHEUS8 MICRONEEDLING WORK?
Micro-needling is a dermatological procedure based on several very small needles that pierce the skin layers to stimulate collagen. The process causes a micro lesion in the skin, which will trigger the body to restore the damaged tissue. And so, new tissue is formed, rich in collagen and elastin.The secret behind micro-needling treatment with MORPHEUS8 lies in how this adipose remodeling device penetrates deep into the skin, simultaneously delivering fractional radiofrequency energy to promote skin renewal. Morpheus8 can penetrate deeper into the skin than any other micro-needling device. Patient comfort is a major advantage of this device because of the sharper needles and tiny punctures it causes in the skin without tugging or pulling. MORPHEUS8 can be used to treat wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, surgical scars, and more.*

WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF FRACTIONAL RF ENERGY?
Fractionated RF energy is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen and fat. It is minimally invasive, using micro-pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime. RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalize the collagen. The treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.*

WHAT IS THE POST-TREATMENT PROCEDURE FOR MORPHEUS8?
Since patient downtime is minimal, the post-care steps are simple and easy to follow. Patients should moisturize the treated area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad-spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing their future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process.
Mild redness and swelling may occur a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week. If micro-needling and radiofrequency with Morpheus 8 is performed as a stand-alone treatment, it may be possible to apply makeup as soon as the day after treatment.
