This phenomenal procedure is becoming increasingly popular among both women and men alike. For good reasons: it’s safe, effective, and a great alternative to costly cosmetic surgeries and facelift procedures. Let’s take a look at Morpheus8 treatments and learn a bit about how this procedure can help you be happier in your skin.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a skin rejuvenation procedure combining the best cosmetic surgery and the simplicity of non-invasive techniques. This procedure can change your skin by offering firming and tightening techniques without any downtime, recovery, and risk associated with traditional cosmetic surgery.
Morpheus8 delivers radiofrequency waves into the skin through tiny holes created by microneedles. The radiofrequency waves pass through the holes and into the deeper layers of the skin, addressing any skin concerns or conditions. While this process is similar to other procedures that involve microneedling, it is far more powerful and can address skin concerns that other procedures cannot.
In addition to treating skin conditions and concerns, it can also be used to tighten and firm up the skin. Thanks to the combination of microneedling and radiofrequency waves, collagen production is increased. The laser used in the Morpheus8 treatments further allows the radiofrequency waves to penetrate the skin, gently heating it up and causing a tightening effect.
How Are Morpheus8 Treatments Done?
Morpheus8 treatments are done in your doctor’s office. First, you will be seated in a comfortable chair and have a numbing cream applied to the area that you are receiving treatment. After the cream is applied, you will have the chance to ask any questions or address any concerns you may have while it takes time to work. Finally, once the cream is working, you will undergo the procedure.
First, a small roller that contains a large amount of tiny needles is applied to the area. Next, a laser and radiofrequency treatment is applied to the area. This will penetrate through the area that was treated with the microneedles, tightening the skin and improving collagen production.
