What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8, the brainchild of the aesthetics industry, may sound like it came straight out of Greek mythology, but it’s more than a myth; it’s a non-surgical, age-defying marvel that’s been creating waves in the world of aesthetics, and it’s scientifically proven to work. This innovative procedure is like a time machine for your skin, returning it to its former glory.

Now, let’s unravel this mystery. What exactly is Morpheus8? In simple terms, it’s a device that combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy, essentially merging two highly effective procedures into one groundbreaking treatment. It takes about 30 minutes, and it can be used on the face and neck. Picture it like a kind of ‘double-punch’ effect on skin aging and damage.

The magic of Morpheus8 lies in its ability to target the deeper layers of skin, stimulating collagen production and naturally ‘remodeling’ your face. The beauty of this procedure is that it doesn’t just address the superficial aspects of skin aging; it takes a deep dive into the subdermal layer, the land where collagen and elastin, the two proteins responsible for our skin’s plumpness and elasticity, reside. By heating these layers, Morpheus8 sparks a process called ‘fractionated RF energy,’ which kickstarts the body’s natural healing response, encouraging it to produce more collagen and elastin. In simpler words, it awakens the sleeping beauty that is your youthful skin!

How Does Morpheus8 Work?

Morpheus8 is like the star of an epic skin rejuvenation tale, armed with a combination of micro-needling and radiofrequency (RF) technology. This dual magic essentially empowers the treatment to work both at the skin’s surface and beneath it, creating a holistic transformation. The fairy dust is your body’s own natural healing process!

Your Morpheus8 technician is an artist, gently sketching fine dots onto the canvas of your skin with tiny micro-needles. The dance of these needles results in minor, controlled injuries. The moment these pricks reach your skin, your body jumps into ‘heal and repair’ mode, triggering collagen and elastin production. These are the stalwarts that plump up your skin, smooth out wrinkles, and reignite that youthful glow we all long for.

But the magic doesn’t stop there. As the micro-needling creates its art, Morpheus8 also releases radiofrequency energy into the deeper layers of your skin. This is where the sub-dermal wizardry happens! This RF energy heats up your underlying tissues, further stimulating collagen production and remodeling the tissue.

Voila! This results in tighter, more radiant skin, softened lines and wrinkles, improved texture, and the reduced appearance of scars and discoloration.

Morpheus8’s results aren’t immediate. You’ll see some initial effects, but the real transformation unfurls over several weeks as your body continues to produce new collagen. Think of it as a story that gets better with every chapter.

Morpheus8 Pre-Treatment Care

Let’s kick things off by bidding farewell to aspirin and NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). That means waving goodbye to ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin), naproxen sodium (Aleve), diclofenac potassium (Voltaren), and their buddies.

Now, if these pain relievers aren’t quite cutting it for you, fret not! Have a heart-to-heart with your doctor about exploring alternative options like acetaminophen (Tylenol) or tramadol hydrochloride (Ultracet). They might just hold the key to a pain-free journey.

Other things to do before your Morpheous8 treatment include:

  • Stop taking blood thinners
  • Do not wear makeup on the day of treatment
  • Excess hair may need to be shaved the night prior
  • Men should be cleanly shaved. 
  • No sun-tanning or self-tanners four weeks before treatment

Details of A Morpheus8 Treatment

The Morpheus8 treatment begins with a consultation to determine your goals and discuss your medical history, lifestyle, and diet.

You will be asked to remove all jewelry, including piercings and retainers. Some patients may be asked to remove contact lenses; if this is the case, please bring along an extra pair of glasses in case they are needed during the procedure (most people do not need them).

Once you’re undergoing the treatment, there’s nothing to worry about. Thanks to the wonderful doctors at Miami Center for Dermatology, you are in good hands.
