Morpheus8 RF microneedling sounds a little like something out of the latest Matrix movie doesn't it? But this new technology and treatment from Dr. Greg Ratliff and Inject, an Aesthetics Bar offers significant skin tightening with remarkably little downtime.
The underlying layers of the dermis are the building blocks to beautiful facial and body contours. Morpheus8 technology uses RF microneedling to change these building blocks with fractional skin treatments for a more natural and radiant looking contour.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 RF microneedling is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production in the deep layers of the dermis. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks will reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Morpheus8 can be used on any area that can benefit from subdermal renewal. The most commonly treated areas include the lower face and neck. Areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on your Morpheus8 treatment regime, you can expect to have between 1-3 sessions.
How quickly will I see results?
Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically after three weeks, the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
What is the benefit of fractionated energy?
Fractionated RF energy is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen and fat. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with almost no downtime.
Can anyone use Morpheus8?
The benefit of Morpheus8's color-blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types. The unique properties allow even darker tones to be treated.
What is the benefit of RF Energy?
RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalize the collagen. The treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.
Can this be used in combination with other treatments?
Yes, Morpheus8 can be used in the same treatment session, or a few days after other treatments.
When can I put makeup on after treatment?
Since downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment. You should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week depending on treatment parameters.
What kind of post procedure care is required?
You should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing your future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process.
