Morpheus8 by InMode


Your skin lets other people know how well you take care of yourself even as you age. Advancements in skin treatments now provide non-surgical options for improving your skin’s appearance. Procedures like Morpheus8 do not need much preparation and downtime. The Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology states that Morpheus8 has a fast recovery period. This applies to other RF or radiofrequency procedures as well. Understanding how this fractional treatment works can motivate you to set an appointment soon. Here are the details.

What Morpheus8 Is

Research shows that most patients prefer non-invasive aesthetic procedures. Morpheus8 is for you if you want to enhance your skin’s appearance without going through any type of surgery. Your doctor at Santa Barbara Eyecare can explain how this treatment can help with the following issues:

  • Jowling
  • Age spots
  • Nasal labial fold or lines
  • Aging lines on your neck and cheeks
  • Acne marks
  • Stretch marks
  • Bags under your eyes

How It Works

Morpheus8 introduces RF energy into your skin through tiny lesions from microneedles. The gentle heat that enters the skin can resurface and restore your skin’s connective tissues. You can feel a significant warmth that reaches about 42 to 43 degrees Celsius. This is enough heat to break down the collagen in your skin. After the treatment, the degraded collagen from Morpheus8 builds up again. The process makes connective tissues stronger. It even results in skin tightening.

The Morpheus8 Procedure

You must be aware of how your preferred anti-aging treatments will go. This can help you prepare for your next appointment. Morpheus8 will not require intravenous sedation or anesthesia because there will be no significant pain during the procedure. The provider will numb the target area first. This will prepare the skin for the microneedles in the RF device.

Morpheus8 is a custom-fit treatment that allows you to get the results that you want. Your provider will choose the micro needling tips that can decrease or increase the amount of RF energy that will enter your skin’s surface. The treatment time will depend on the size of the target area. After the treatment, the provider may apply a rejuvenating solution or serum to your treated skin. This will speed up your skin’s healing.

The Recovery

Clinical studies show that patients often return to regular activities right after their Morpheus8 treatment. There could be minor bruising and swelling, but ice packs are enough to manage them. The post-treatment solution or serum will help ease skin tightness after the micro needling. It can also enhance collagen production even more.

The Results

You will notice your skin’s dramatic improvements after Morpheus8. Many patients find this procedure better than traditional chemical peels because your skin’s natural healing does most of the work. Your skin’s tone, texture, and health will show dramatic improvement six weeks after this procedure. The skin renewal that you get can be life-changing.

The Candidates

A consultation with your provider will let you know if you are a good candidate for Morpheus8. This treatment is ideal for patients with acne scars or active acne. It can also help individuals with clear signs of aging at 30 to 50 years of age. You should be a healthy, non-smoker who does not have chronic illnesses.
