Morpheus8 is a popular non-surgical procedure that can help you maintain youthful-looking skin without being overly invasive. The equipment used with Morpheus8 deploys a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency technology to stimulate collagen production and achieve incredible results. Morpheus8 is a great alternative to surgical treatments and is far less painful than those which require you to go under the knife.
In this blog, we’re looking at exactly what the Morpheus8 treatment entails and the benefits it can have on your skin.
What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 uses microneedling and radiofrequencies to penetrate deeper layers of skin and fat using a laser. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which can help your skin glow and combat any signs of ageing. These are important elements in keeping youthful skin; however, time, lifestyle and environment can impact the quality of collagen and elastin in your skin.
The Benefits Of Morpheus8
One of the key benefits of the treatment is that it is able to combat signs of ageing and can actively treat fine lines, wrinkles, reduce scarring and skin discolouration, fade stretch marks, and tighten loose skin.
There are also fewer risks when choosing Morpheus8 over other surgical procedures and the beauty is that it’s safe for all skin types. As it is a non-surgical procedure, there is minimal downtime and you’re less likely to experience any side effects.
Morphues8 treatment isn’t limited to the face either; it can be applied to almost any part of the body, but popular areas include the neck, arms, stomach, legs, décolletage and backs of hands.
What Before & Aftercare Is Required?
You will start your Morpheus8 journey with a consultation. During this, we will explain what will happen during the procedure, potential side effects and the results you can expect.
To help ensure your safety, it is recommended that during the time leading up to your treatment you’ll need to take extra care of your skin, which means avoiding sun tanning for 28 days leading up to the treatment and avoiding the use of retinol-based products for 7 days prior.
There is little downtime after the treatment, however, there are a few things you can do to maximise the treatment results. This includes avoiding using products with active ingredients for 24 hours after and avoiding the sun for around 1 month. Following this, you should also use high-factor sunblock if you are exposed and make sure not to pick any dead skin.
Once the treatment has been successfully completed, it can take some time to see results. Typically you’ll begin to see improvement in your skin around one month afterwards.
