How does Morpheus8 work?
Morpheus 8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen
production of the underlying layers of the dermis. By targeting the
subdermal tissue, the building blocks will reorganise themselves in a
natural anti-ageing process.
The way Morpheus8 works is by creating micro-injuries on the skin
using titanium microneedles, coupled with radiofrequency energy,
this heats the layers deep to the skin.
In combination with the radiofrequency heating, the micro-injuries
stimulate a reaction in the skin, which (over the following 3-6 months)
increases the levels of collagen and elastin in the skin to tighten and
lift thicken the supporting skin texture. This makes it an ideal
treatment for sagging, lax or sun-damaged skin.
What is a fractional skin treatment?
Fractional Radio frequency energy is the method that has been scientifically proven to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen & elastin. This method combines Micro Needling & Radio Frequency, this ensures we are targeting deeper layers of the skin - The Micro Needling creates a controlled trauma in the top skin layers which results in white blood cells rushing to the area to heal. As the Micro Needles are penetrated into the skin, radio frequency is emitted through the very tip of the needle, this RF current travels beneath the skin layers, which in turn creates new collagen & elastin to help rebuild the skin structure from below. In addition, this treatment has minimal downtime (1-3 days)
What problems does the Morpheus8 treatment address?
-Skin laxity -Skin laxity is a sign of ageing skin - lax or loose skin, fine lines & deep wrinkles.
-Acne scars and dark spots -This unevenness from old scars can be improved with micro-needling treatment as it causes the formation of new collagen and elastin to replace ageing cells.
-Fine lines and wrinkles -Fine lines and wrinkles result from a lack of collagen, which causes the skin to become crepey. Morpheus8 treatments work by rebuilding the structure of your skin with new collagen and elastin, which help to lift, tightening lax skin..
What are the benefits of Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 offers the following benefits:
It firms the skin, leaving it looking more radiant and smooth.
Improves the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
Helps to improve any old scarring or stretch marks
The silicone coating on the microneedles gives you excellent
and the Radiofrequency energy penetrates deep into layers
of the skin - quicker healing time.
Stimulates collagen production with minimal downtime.
Downtime is 1-3 days, with redness subsiding a few hours post treatment.
Why choose Morpheus8 over another method of micro-needling?
Morpheus8, compared to other forms of radiofrequency micro-needling or skin resurfacing, has several benefits, including more precise targeting of deeper layers of the skin for deeper tightening and reduced risk of post-inflammatory pigmentation, by virtue of the silicone coating on the microneedles.
Morpheus8 also has specific benefits for anti-ageing as the treatment causes multiple stimuli in the skin. For example, it stimulates collagen production, increases cell turnover rates, and improves fine lines & lax skin.
Another main advantage is that the treatment has minimal downtime. Redness subsides within a few hours post treatment. Heavy makeup is not advised for 3 days. Moisturiser & SPF must be worn post treatment on day 2.
What are the side effects of Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 uses individually-inserted titanium microneedles coated in silicone to gently penetrate the skin. You may see small bumps appear on your face immediately after the treatment, but these will subside within 2-24 hours, like any other form of micro-needling therapy.
You may experience some small temporary bruising around insertion sites (typically under the eyes or on jawline), but these will subside within a few days after your treatment.
Where can Morpheus8 be used?
Morpheus8 can be used on any area of the face or body where the skin is showing signs of ageing, such as lines and wrinkles. The most commonly treated areas include the face and neck, arms, hands and abdomen.
The knees and thighs are also popular areas for treatment. In addition, areas of the face and body with stretch marks, or acne scarring are also suitable for treatment.
How long until you see results
Clients will begin to see the results of Morpheus8 after 3-4 weeks. The full effects of Morpheus8 are typically seen after three-six months. On average we recommend a course of three sessions, which are spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Maintenance following a course of Morpheus8 is recommended once or twice a year.
How long does it last?
Morpheus8 treatment reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles, revitalizes collagen and elastin production, and improves skin texture. The effects of the treatment are long-term, with most patients seeing results for up to one year.
