Detailed Breakdown of Radiofrequency Morpheus8

Loss of elasticity, excessive wrinkles, and sagging skin- did you know that radiofrequency microneedling with Morpheus8 can help these common skin concerns? Read on to find out what Morpheus8 is and what it entails.

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is advertised to be a secure and efficient alternative for rejuvenating the face, neck, and body using radiofrequency technology. It’s designed to give you a more youthful and refreshed appearance without the need of lasers or surgery. While it seems like it’s an excellent option for rejuvenation, its safety is still under evaluation.

What does the procedure consist of?

The treatment involves the following steps:

  1. The area of treatment is first numbed using a topical cream.
  2. Radiofrequency energy is then delivered to the skin surface through micro-pins using a specialized device.
  3. The radiofrequency device comes with various tips of different depths. The medical provider selects the appropriate tips and pins to control the amount of radiofrequency energy delivered to the patient’s skin, ensuring a personalized and tailored treatment approach.
  4. This customized approach allows the specialist to achieve optimal results for the patient.
  5. The entire procedure usually takes around one and a half hours, though the actual duration may vary based on the size of the treated skin area.

What are some areas of concerns?

More often than not, patients may experience some redness, pinpoint bleeding, mild bruising, and swelling in the first 24 hours after treatment. Some patients have also reported bumps or grid marks. Depending on the area of treatment, small scabs may develop within the first 72 hours. In the case you do notice scabbing, avoid picking at it. Another drawback for Morpheus8 is the potential risk of burn injuries to the skin. If not performed correctly, the heat generated by the treatment device could result in damage to the surface or even the deeper layers. 

Possible areas of treatment include:

  • Jowling
  • Nasal labial fold lines
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Frown lines
  • Troublesome aging lines on the cheeks and neck
  • Arms
  • Knees
  • Abdomen
  • Cystic acne/acne scars

Who is a candidate?

Ideal recipients for this treatment generally fit into two main groups:

  1. Men and women aged between thirty and fifty-five who wish to address visible signs of aging.
  2. Patients dealing with active acne or acne scars that have not responded well to oral and/or topical medications.
