How Morpheus8 Treatments Work
There are so many elements that are combined to make up great, natural-looking skin, but many people don’t understand why their skin starts to show signs of ageing in the first place – or how they can prevent it.
Wrinkles form due to a loss of what we call the extracellular matrix. This supplies skin with its tensile strength and elasticity. Other contributing factors include UVA sunlight and environmental factors such as cigarette smoke, alcohol and unhealthy food habits, which breaks down our collagen and the elastic tissue surrounding it, which then causes wrinkles. There is a clinical correlation between loss of collagen and fibrillin (which supports structures that impart tissue integrity) and the severity of wrinkling. With this knowledge, scientists have developed treatments to counteract these issues and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Morpheus8 treatments are one of the solutions that have been developed to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improving skin texture and tone, while also tightening and lifting. But you may still be wondering, are Morpheus8 treatments really worth it? Is it the right one for you? And how do they actually work? Well, we’ve answered the most commonly asked questions below so you can better understand this industry-leading treatment.
What is Morpheus8?
The creators of the technology, InMode, state that Morpheus8 is a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD) that fractionally remodels and contours the face and body. Morpheus8 treatments penetrate deeper into the dermis and epidermis to mould fat subdermally and morph ageing facial details into more youthful features. Your face, neck, and body can be fully lifted and tightened, making it an effective, more cost-effective and safer alternative to surgery.
How do the treatments work?
During your initial consultation, you will receive an in-depth skin analysis, where we can address your concerns, assess any issues, and answer questions. We will also be able to discuss your skin goals and ensure that Morpheus8 treatments are the best option available for your skin type and needs. On the day of treatment, a topical cream will be applied to reduce any potential discomfort. Once numb, the Morpheus8 handpiece will be passed over your target areas. It is not painful and all you will feel is a slightly warm sensation. The radiofrequency energy will be administered deep into your skin and tissue as tiny microneedles create small pricks on the surface. The treatment time varies from patient to patient and can last between 30 to 60 minutes, but it can be longer depending upon the size of the treatment area.
Who does it suit?
Morpheus8 can be used on all skin types regardless of whether it is characteristically normal, dry, oily, both oily and dry, or sensitive. It also suits all ethnicities and skin tones, and all ages from 21 to 101.
It is also well suited to those who would like noticeable results that still look natural – without any downtime. By using radiofrequency technology, you are not adding anything foreign to the body, like fillers, or resorting to facelift surgery, which requires an extensive recovery time. You can look your absolute best without needing to take time off work!
What are other associated benefits?
The combined power of radiofrequency and micro-needling is incredible. We have many clients who have seen fantastic results and it has the ability to roll back the hands of time. Here are a few of the most common improvements:
- Effective skin tightening
- Great reduction of stretch marks
- Increase in collagen production
- Considerably shrinks enlarged pores
- Improvements in sagging on the face and neck
- Treat active acne or visible signs of acne scarring
- Smooth out crepey skin – including cellulite
- Leave natural, even and long-lasting results
How many treatments are needed and how quick are the results?
Between three and six treatments are usually needed depending on various factors, needs and desires. After receiving it, you will notice a permanent change. But, as life progresses your skin will begin to age again due to genetics and lifestyle. Subsequent treatments can be considered in line with your practitioner’s advice. Remember though that all patients vary and the results can last longer or short. While some may require only one session initially, others may require additional treatments spaced 4 weeks apart, in order to achieve optimal results.
In terms of the results themselves, tightening will be visible immediately. Some of our patients have reported seeing an immediate improvement in their skin quality and texture. Over the course of two to three weeks, you will begin to notice drastic changes in your skin, which will continue to improve over time. Within three months, we’d expect all changes will be fully noticeable.
