How Does Morpheus8 Work?

A routine cosmetic procedure for various enhancements is microneedling, which creates minor damage and relies on the body’s natural healing process to restore the skin’s luster. Though it may seem like a counterproductive process, microneedling treatments offer noticeable results.

One of the most impactful microneedling solutions is Morpheus8, which offers significant results with fewer treatment sessions. If you are interested in learning more about how Morpheus8 works, our plastic surgery practice could provide answers during an initial call or consultation.

Morpheus8 Treatment Explained

Just like with traditional microneedling, Morpheus8 creates micro-injuries in the skin which kickstart the body’s natural healing process and restore an even skin texture. Specifically, the treatment uses needles to pierce the skin. In response to the minor damage, the body starts growing new cells.

Additionally, as the Morpheus8 needles penetrate the skin, they emit radiofrequency energy to surrounding tissues. The skin absorbs this heat which helps stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.

Since collagen production starts to decline when a person is in their 20s, using Morpheus8 to stimulate the production of new proteins could refresh the skin. After treatment, Morpheus8 patients see fine lines and minor wrinkles reduced while the overall skin appears smoother, tighter, and firmer.

The Distinct Advantages of Morpheus8 Microneedling

The unique combination of radiofrequency energy and microneedling makes Morpheus8 more effective than many other non-invasive cosmetic treatments. For example, other procedures that apply radiofrequency energy to the outer layers of the skin do not penetrate as deep into the skin as Morpheus8 does. This results in less collagen production and a less noticeable reduction in wrinkles or signs of aging.

Additionally, due to the more considerable enhancements possible with Morpheus8, patients often need fewer sessions to notice improvements. Three to four treatments should be enough to reduce scars, hyperpigmentation, and general signs of aging. Results are also long-lasting – around 12 to 18 months.
