Morpheus8 laser treatment uses a combination of radiofrequency (RF) and microneedling to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin at a deeper level. Collagen and elastin are the two proteins that keep your skin youthfully elastic and firm and as we age, the production of these proteins decreases which leads to wrinkles and saggy skin. Morpheus8 can be used almost anywhere on the body to “reverse” these effects and tighten the skin to redefine and tone the skin for a youthful, vibrant look.
Morpheus8 is the ideal non-invasive body sculpting treatment for almost everyone. The Morpheus8 laser can treat sagging skin on your face, neck, buttocks, abdomen, arms, legs, and even chest. The main qualifications to be a Morpheus8 patient are to be in good health with no active skin conditions. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should also wait to receive treatment.
Multiple tiny needles will penetrate deep into the skin and heat the skin at a deeper level than other microneedling procedures. As these small needles administer RF energy, the tissue will be heated, and the body’s natural healing process will begin. The healing process involves the production of collagen. As collagen and elastin are produced, the treated area will be naturally resculpted and redefined for a more youthful appearance.
For 3-5 days after treatment, it is not uncommon to experience mild swelling, redness, and peeling around the treated area. Apply moisturizer frequently and stay out of the sun to speed up your recovery from these side effects.
Collagen stimulation leads to gradual improvements that will take up to 3-6 months to fully develop. However, you will start to see changes within a few weeks or even a few days, depending on the area treated and how your body responds to that treatment. A minimum of 3 treatments will be needed for optimal results.
