What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a non-surgical, deep fractional radiofrequency treatment that uses tiny needles that penetrate the skin and heat tissue to stimulate collagen production. But unlike other needling treatments, the needles penetrate to a deeper level of the skin.
Morpheus8 targets tissue at three levels in millisecond intervals, without cutting or disturbing the skin surface. Patients will see Improved skin texture and appearance. Skin irregularities such as acne scars and skin discoloration can be reduced. Morpheus8 is also the only treatment that can mold fat under the skin.
The most common areas that are treated include the lower face and neck, though other areas can also be treated.
What to Expect from Morpheus8 Treatment
Morpheus8 treatment at Advanced Dermatology and Skin Cancer Associates is performed by our licensed dermatologists. While appointment length will vary depending on the individual, they typically last 30 to 60 minutes.
A topical cream will be applied to the treatment area. Morpheus8 is administered using a handheld wand that passes over your skin. You may experience a slight prickling sensation from the needles. However, they are very sharp and fine and puncture the skin instead of pulling it, so the procedure is relatively painless.
There is generally no downtime or recovery after Morpheus8 treatment. Results can be seen within a few days. Improvements can continue for up to three months after treatment.
