What is Morpheus8?

As we age, an increase in skin laxity causes our skin to produce less collagen and elastin, which are important building blocks for firm, youthful-looking skin. Morpheus8 is a fractional treatment that combines microneedling treatment with radiofrequency energy that stimulates collagen production and renews deeper layers of skin tissue than any other resurfacing methods. The benefits of this combined approach are seen in skin tightening due to increased collagen production, improved skin tone, and a diminished double chin, helping you to turn back the clock for a more youthful appearance. As an added bonus, clients can enjoy an extremely uniform effect in the treated area with almost no patient downtime or surgical procedures.

The Morpheus8 treatment can be used on many different areas of the face and body to correct:

  • Sagging or loose skin
  • Stretch marks
  • Crepey skin
  • Skin discolorations
  • Poor skin texture

All their staff are knowledgeable and make genuine recommendations that best suit your needs. D’Andra recommended for me to try Morpheus 8 first before I tried using under eye fillers. She explained to me that this technology helps with rejuvenating your skin by utilizing micro needling and simultaneously adding heat at the point of each needle that produces new collagen and tightens the skin essentially allowing my skin to repair itself without the use of additives. 

I had the Morpheus 8 procedure administered at Elite Aesthetics & Wellness. My reservations about the procedure were allayed by D’Andra who made me feel assured. The results from the Morpheus 8 microneedling technology were amazing. My skin felt tighter, acne scars less visible, pores appeared smaller, the fine lines less distinguishable and overall, my skin felt brighter and healthier. After seeing the results, I became obsessed with the procedure despite the minor discomfort of the needling which was minimal due to their advanced pain management techniques

What to Expect During Your Morpheus8 Treatment

During your Morpheus8 treatment, topical numbing cream will first be applied to the treatment area to ensure your comfort. Then, the special handheld device is placed against the skin, allowing the ultra-thin needles to penetrate the subdermal layers of the skin, creating micro-wounds. By creating extremely small wounds in the skin, the body’s repair process is triggered, which involves elastin and collagen production over the course of the healing process. Radiofrequency (RF) energy is simultaneously emitted into the dermal layer of the skin, tightening the adipose tissue (fat) below and enhancing collagen stimulation. Treatment time may vary from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Morpheus8 Results

Following treatment, there is no downtime required, so you can feel free to return to your regular activities. Mild redness, swelling, or micro lesions may last for about 3-4 days as the skin heals. Be sure to avoid touching or applying any type of creams or lotions to the treated areas, and avoid direct sun exposure for 12 hours after your session. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is rare with morpheus8 but will clear up shortly on its own. We will provide you with specific aftercare instructions to help ensure you receive the beautiful results you desire.

Some people may notice results as soon as their first treatment session, though we recommend 3 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart in order to see the best possible outcomes. Once you have completed your recommended sessions, results will continue to improve for up to 3 months. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our office if you have any questions or concerns regarding your Morpheus8 treatment.
