What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. This process involves making micropunctures in the skin using tiny needles, similar to the SkinPen® procedure, while delivering RF energy for additional tissue remodeling. As both the dermis and epidermis are treated, this signals the body’s natural healing response, stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin in these skin layers. Dr. Jodie Reinertson and her team at CosMedic Skincare offer the Morpheus8 treatment for those wanting to improve their skin tone and texture, while achieving a tightening effect for beautiful, youthful skin.
What Are the Benefits of Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is an exciting skin care solution as it incorporates the benefits of both microneedling and RF treatments into one procedure. Some of the most notable advantages to choosing Morpheus8 for your skin concerns include:
- Minimally invasive procedure with little to no downtime
- Considered safe for all skin tones, including those with dark skin
- Can be performed on virtually any body area
- Helps diminish wrinkles, mild sagging, scarring, age spots, and more
What Does the Morpheus8 Treatment Involve?
To begin your Morpheus8 treatment session, your skin care professional will apply a numbing cream to the target area, ensuring your comfort throughout your appointment. Once this takes effect, the Morpheus8 handheld device will be slowly guided across your skin, allowing the microneedles to puncture your skin and the RF heat to be delivered. Every Morpheus8 treatment is customized to the specific needs of the patient, as the RF energy can be adjusted to reach different depths for optimal improvement.
A treatment with the Morpheus8 device can take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes, which will ultimately depend on the size of the area being treated. You may feel some slight pressure during the process, but our team will make sure any discomfort is minimized. After your procedure, you can expect redness and slight swelling for the first three days. You will be provided with post-treatment care instructions to help you heal properly and achieve the best possible results.
How Long Does Morpheus8 Last?
Initial results from Morpheus8 can typically be seen within the first few days of treatment, with additional tightening in the first three weeks. One to three treatments are usually recommended, but this can vary depending on the type and severity of a patient’s skin concerns. Morpheus8 results tend to last for about a year, which is why our skin care professionals recommend yearly follow-up sessions to help maintain the rejuvenative effects of their treatment.
How Much Does Morpheus8 Cost?
The average cost of a Morpheus8 treatment series is approximately $2,000. However, every treatment plan differs and, therefore, so will the cost. Factors that may influence your Morpheus8 cost include the number of treatment sessions you need and the experience of your aesthetic professional.
