Am I a Good Candidate for Morpheus8?

There are plenty of cosmetic treatment options that reduce fine lines, rough texture, and signs of aging. Microneedling is one powerful solution for addressing these concerns. Therefore, anyone interested in making noticeable changes with minimal risk should consider a microneedling solution known as Morpheus8.

Though most individuals with minor aging signs and uneven skin texture are good candidates for Morpheus8, discussing with a professional beforehand is best. For instance, although the treatment could reduce acne scarring, it may worsen active acne breakouts. Deciding when to receive treatment requires professional input.

If you are wondering whether you are a good candidate for Morpheus8, schedule a consultation to discuss the procedure, its benefits, and anything else you need to know.

What Makes Morpheus8 Unique?

Like with standard microneedling, Morpheus8 treatments use thin needles to create micro-injuries within the skin that stimulate the growth of healthy skin cells. The body also produces new collagen as part of the healing process, an essential protein for maintaining firm and youthful skin. However, what makes Morpheus8 unique is how it uses radiofrequency waves to penetrate the numerous dermal layers.

By combining the traditional microneedling technique with this innovation, Morpheus8 stimulates more skin cells and produces more collagen than other treatments, resulting in more notable skin improvements. This means that Morpheus8 is an ideal option for reducing the appearance of mild skin laxity, wrinkles, fine lines, and additional signs of aging. Furthermore, the treatment could considerably improve one’s skin tone by minimizing, acne scarring, and other forms of imperfections.

The Ideal Morpheus8 Candidate Explained

Though Morpheus8 treatments are more effective at reducing signs of aging than traditional microneedling, the non-invasive procedure is still better suited for more resolving minor concerns. More specifically, you may be a good candidate for Morpheus8 microneedling treatments if your signs of aging, skin laxity, and wrinkles range from mild to moderate. On the other hand, surgical correction is the better solution if you have deeper wrinkles and lots of loose skin.

Unlike some skin resurfacing treatments, Morpheus8 is safe for all skin tones and types. People with tan or darker complexions are not at a higher risk of developing hyperpigmentation afterward. However, the treatment could worsen active skin conditions like acne, eczema, or rosacea by spreading bacteria or inflammation across the face. Morpheus8 is not recommended for patients who are pregnant or actively breastfeeding.

Finally, as with all cosmetic procedures, qualifying candidates for Morpheus8 are individuals in good overall health. More specifically, ideal Morpheus8 patients should have no significant medical conditions that may impair the healing process.

Schedule a Consultation to Learn if You Are a Good Candidate for Morpheus8 Treatment

One of the best cosmetic treatments for establishing a more even skin tone and texture is microneedling. However, if you want more noteworthy improvements, consider the more substantial enhancements possible with Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling.

Since the treatment is not ideal for correcting severe skin laxity or intense signs of aging, undergoing an assessment beforehand is necessary to determine whether you are an ideal candidate. Reach out to our plastic surgery practice today to learn more.
