The Morpheus8 was originally designed by InMode for acne scar treatment, but doctors soon found that skin tightening accompanied scar reduction. Best of all, these treatments are available in an office setting, requiring no anesthesia. Morpheus 8 treatment from a qualified Connecticut doctor could help facilitate collagen restoration and a more youthful appearance.
As people age, their collagen levels also decline, meaning it no longer plumps up skin enough to avoid wrinkles. Fractional radiofrequency energy can rebuild collagen, the body’s most abundant protein.
The Morpheus8 is a subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) that uses sophisticated micro-needles in combination with heat energy to penetrate deep into both skin and fat, morphing an aging face or body to appear younger, smoother and sleeker. In effect, this minimally invasive treatment is natural, because it involves collagen stimulation with no pharmaceuticals required. The skin itself rebuilds the tissue.
The Morpheus8 is suitable for any area experiencing wrinkling, acne scars, stretch marks, or discoloration. The majority of patients seek treatment on their faces or necks, or in the abdominal region.
Most people can expect between one and three Morpheus8 treatment sessions. Results do not appear immediately, but the patient should see some improvement within a few days of the initial treatment.
The micro-lesions, which stimulate skin healing and collagen rebuilding, appear within a few days post-treatment. After approximately three weeks, the difference should become apparent. As the collagen builds up, the improvement continues. After three months or so, Morpheus8 sessions may be repeated for preventive maintenance depending on an individual patient’s needs.
Post-treatment care after a Morpheus8 session differs little from good anti-aging skincare practices. Patients should wear moisturizer and sunscreen and stay out of the sun as much as possible.
However, recipients of Morpheus8 treatment should avoid wearing makeup for a day or two after a session. Some redness should also be expected for a week or so after treatment, but the redness is generally slight and not that noticeable.
The Morpheus8 provides benefits not always available with similar remodeling devices. These include:
With certain skin types, there is the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, or changes in skin color, with certain resurfacing methods. That is not the case with Morpheus 8. That means darker-skinned individuals can take advantage of Morpheus 8 technology for wrinkle reduction and skin improvement.
