Project Description

Morpheus 8 Microneedling Radiofrequency




Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive bipolar radiofrequency (RF) tissue treatment that offers customizable fractional treatments through an interchangeable portfolio of microneedling tips. It is particularly beneficial for patients with wrinkles,  acne or acne scars. The procedure itself is outpatient and does not require anesthesia or IV sedation since patients experience minimal discomfort.

Here are the steps involved:

  1. Application of topical numbing cream to the desired areas of the face for improvement.
  2. Use of the device with micro-pins to deliver radiofrequency energy into the skin surface.
  3. The device offers tips with different depths, allowing the specialist to customize the treatment by adjusting the radiofrequency delivered to the patient’s skin. This personalized approach ensures optimal results. The duration of the procedure typically lasts around one and a half hours, depending on the treated area’s size.

Following the treatment, patients can resume normal daily activities. Any swelling or bruising associated with the procedure can be managed using ice packs. Patients may experience slight tightness in the face, but it subsides within a few days. The overall recovery time for a Morpheus8 treatment is usually less than an hour.

The results of the treatment become noticeable as collagen tightens during the recovery process, leading to improvements in facial appearance. The face appears lifted, volume is added to lax areas, and the overall skin complexion improves. Final results are typically seen around six weeks after the procedure. Morpheus8 treatments can significantly enhance a patient’s youthful appearance, whether performed individually or as a series.

Candidates for Morpheus8 treatment usually fall into two categories:

  1. Men and women aged thirty to fifty-five who wish to address visible signs of aging.
  2. Patients with active acne or scars do not respond to oral and/or topical medications.

Treatments are typically reserved for healthy, non-smoking individuals without significant medical conditions. An initial consultation with Aesthetics and Wellness Durango is necessary to determine if a patient is suitable for Morpheus8 treatment.

To address any potential concerns or questions about Morpheus8, here are some frequently asked questions:

  1. How does Morpheus8 work? Morpheus8 uses radiofrequency technology to gently heat the facial skin after micro-lesions are created, stimulating collagen production and resurfacing connective tissues. Over six weeks, the broken-down collagen reforms, resulting in tighter and stronger connective tissues, lifted facial contours, and added volume to hollow areas.
  2. How many Morpheus8 treatments will I need? The number of treatments depends on the patient’s visible signs of aging, goals, desired outcome, and Sarah’s recommendation.
  3. Can all areas of my face be treated with Morpheus8? Morpheus8 can treat various face areas, including the upper and lower eyelids, mouth, cheeks, and neck. It can also be used in localized areas with acne. The versatility of Morpheus8 makes it an effective treatment option.
