Morpheus8 combines radiofrequency technology with fractional micro pins. These pins create minuscule injuries to the skin, stimulating a natural healing response.
Part of this response includes the production of new collagen and elastin fibres, which tighten and smooth the skin, resulting in a healthier tone and texture to the skin with reduced fine lines and wrinkles.
Morpheus8 has been clinically proven to deliver fractional radiofrequency energy deep in to the dermis, which further enhances skin tightening and scar reduction.
Results are long lasting and continue to improve over a period of months after treatment, as new collagen and elastin develops.
The following areas can be targeted with Morpheus8:
- Sagging skin on the lower face, jawline, neck and body
- Jowls underneath the chin and jaw creating a more defined jawline
- Fine lines, wrinkles and creases on the lower face and neck
- Prominent forehead lines
- Double chin
- Reduce pore size
- Stretch marks
- Reducing acne scars
- Dull and uneven complexion
- Loose or lax skin anywhere on the body
Initially topical local anaesthetic will be applied to the treatment area for approximately 45- 60 minutes. Overall, Morpheus8 treatments are very well-tolerated, and most patients describe the sensation similar to plucking your eyebrows. On average, the procedure time will last from 15-30 minutes.
The greatest advantage of Morpheus8 is the minimal downtime. Many of our patients resume their normal daily activities the next day. However, based on the level of treatment and your individual skin type you may experience swelling, redness and bruising, which should subside within a week. Makeup should be avoided for 72 hours. Your doctor will discuss and give a full description of our post treatment care tips to aid in your recovery.
We advise you to avoid strong direct sunlight exposure for four weeks before and after the treatment. It would be sensible to plan your treatments around any vacations. The use of SPF50 is recommended 3 days post treatment on a daily basis.
