What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a very powerful skin tightening medial device. It combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy. Our machine can penetrate up to 4mm in skin depth with a further 2mm heat profile. We use the 4mm setting for deep tissue skin tightening and contraction. Truly “shrink-wrapping” the skin and tissues. We then use 1mm 2mm and 3mm for more superficial fractional skin resurfacing. This improves the tone, texture of the skin addressing fine lines and wrinkles. The combination of both settings produces a profound skin tightening affect on your skin tissues. Morpehus8 is the only device available that can treat multiple skin layers. By targeting multiple layers in the skin the skin tightening affects are very powerful.
On areas that are not the face we are able to go 7mm deep. This aids deeper tissue tightening on stubborn areas such as the abdomen.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Morpheus8 can be used on any areas where there is skin laxity , areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles, discolouration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment. The most commonly treated areas include the face and neck (we use the device to create a powerful non-surgical facelift result) as well as the abdomen which is beneficial for tightening loose skin with underlying fatty tissue.
How Many Treatments Will I need?
We recommend 3 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Having 3 sessions equally spaced to start will give you your best result. This will then be maintained by having 1 session a year.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically after four weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
Can This Be Used In Combination With Other Treatments?
We often perform morpehus8 with our other signature injectable treatments. This way we produce the most phenomenal results as the treatments work synergistically together. For example we often tighten the skin with morpehus8 and then replace volume loss with filler to create further lift and definition.
We often then add some Ejal40® x Profhilo® and Anti-wrinkle injections BTX to help give the skin a fresh and plump dewy glow.
Patients should moisturise the treatment area 24 hours after treatment. In the first 24 hours after treatment it is important to allow your skin to breath. Just use luke warm water to wash your face and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing their future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the ageing process.
