Morpheus is a treatment based on radiofrequency, a technology that has been used for years in Aesthetic Medicine and Plastic Surgery. Specifically, it uses fractional radiofrequency and is a minimally invasive treatment, scientifically tested and supported by many clinical studies, which is between fractional laser equipment and non-invasive surgical procedures. This means that it is a treatment with the same results as other more invasive treatments but with no damage to the dermis.
What is Morpheus8 and how does it work on the skin?
Morpheus8 is a treatment that uses fractionated bipolar radiofrequency, which stimulates neocollagenesis in the underlying layers of the skin. Specifically, Morpheus targets the deeper layers of the skin, producing a reorganization of the tissues and, therefore, an anti-aging effect.
It is the first device that targets subdermal fat for a rejuvenated appearance. Fractional radiofrequency penetrates to a depth of about 4,000 microns, with an additional thermal profile of 1,000 microns and a programmable energy level. Morpheus8 has a microneedle applicator with 24 pins that penetrate the skin, coagulating fat and tightening connective tissue. In turn, the radiofrequency energy generates a subnecrotic heating of the dermis. It is a highly effective treatment with immediate results.
What areas can be treated with Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 can be applied to any area in need of subdermal rejuvenation. It is usually applied on the lower third of the face and neck and is indicated for any skin tone, even the darkest. It is especially recommended for patients with flaccidity, slightly sagging skin or wrinkled appearance, with irregularities.
The most demanded treatments and areas are:
- Severe and moderate wrinkles
- Nasolabial fold
- Bar code
- Scars and acne marks
- Improvement of the appearance and tone of the skin
- Double chin
- Turkey neck
What are the benefits of Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 has multiple benefits:
- It is a safe and highly effective technique.
- It is a treatment that does not damage the dermis.
- It generates a uniform effect on the skin.
- It is a treatment without risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).
- It is not a surgical procedure: it does not require hospital admission or sedation, only topical anesthesia. It does not leave scars.
- The results are completely uniform, permanent and visible from the first session.
What post-treatment care should be followed and when can the results be seen?
After the treatment the patient should moisturize the area well and avoid sun exposure, so it is recommended to use sunscreen every day, which not only prevents skin cancer but also helps prevent wrinkles and slows down aging.
After one or two days the patient will be able to wear make-up again, since the recovery time is minimal. It is normal that micro lesions may appear a few days later and, in some cases, a slight reddening of the area for a week maximum, depending on the parameters used.
The results are visible already in the first days, and will be 100% visible after 3 weeks. However, the skin improves up to 3 months after treatment.
