What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 by InMode is the latest generation of microneedling. Instead of simply boosting collagen production through controlled wounding, Morpheus8 reaches far deeper into the skin (up to 8mm) and uses the benefits of radiofrequency energy to tighten and rejuvenate skin. This fractional treatment can address a variety of skin concerns, including some of the toughest concerns like acne scars and moderate signs of aging.
How Does RF Microneedling Work?
RF microneedling works very similarly to traditional microneedling. It uses a specialized handpiece with 24 silicone-coated microneedles that deeply penetrate the skin and create tiny channels, activating your body’s natural wound-healing response. At the same time, the handpiece emits bipolar radiofrequency energy that generates gentle heat and causes collagen contraction. The overall result is tightening of loose skin as well as a boost to your skin’s natural rate of collagen production (which can begin to drop off as soon as your 30s). Overall, RF microneedling is an even more effective way to tighten skin and rejuvenate its appearance.
What Can Morpheus8 Treat?
Morpheus8 is an excellent option for many deep-rooted skin concerns. Additionally, it can be a great way to maintain your skin’s natural rate of collagen production to prevent visible signs of aging. With the right treatment package, Morpheus8 can effectively treat the following:
- Loose skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne and overactive pores
- Acne scarring
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
Morpheus8 can be performed right in our Richmond office. Morpheus8 can be uncomfortable, so we can provide a topical anesthetic. Once you’re ready, the specialized handpiece is applied to your treatment area. The microneedles reach deep into your skin and jumpstart the collagen induction process while also emitting radiofrequency between the handpiece’s two poles. Once complete, your skin will be soothed and moisturized so you can continue with your day. Overall, treatment can take between 30-60 minutes, depending on your treatment plan.
Morpheus8 Results and Recovery
You can return to your regular schedule immediately after Morpheus8 treatments, although you should avoid exercise and heat exposure for the first day. For the remainder of your day and for a few days afterward, you’ll experience some residual redness and sensitivity. Make sure to avoid harsh active skincare ingredients, and our team will make sure you know which products are best for your skin during this time. It’s extremely important to wear sunscreen with SPF of at least 30 for the first few weeks after your treatment (since your skin will be photosensitive during this time).
Most patients benefit from regular Morpheus8 treatments for best results, usually spaced one month apart. During your consultation with our team, we’ll create a customized treatment package for you and your goals. You can expect your final results to emerge in the weeks and months after treatment, with more defined tightness, brightness, and youthfulness in your skin.
