Morpheus8 In St. Louis, MO

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 combines radiofrequency and microneedling to fractionally remodel the skin of the face, neck and chest. Delivering energy deep into the skin and subcutaneous tissue, the RF needle generates heat and stimulates collagen production. Morpheus8 is great for all skin tones and carries little risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Minimal recovery. Requires consult with a nurse.

How does Morpheus8 work?

Morpheus8 takes microneedling and radiofrequency energy technology to the next level by delivering RF energy deep within the dermis for more extensive tissue remodeling and better results. Morpheus8 uses tiny pins to perforate the skin perpendicularly and create uniform micro-injuries to the skin.

As a result, the body’s natural healing mechanism works to repair these micro-injuries, replacing damaged cells and improving the skin’s health and appearance. At the same time, RF energy travels from the pins into the target area. This heat firms skin and boosts collagen production for both immediate and ongoing repair. The Morpheus8 device is adjustable so that it can deliver treatment at varying depths.

Benefits of Morpheus8

Morpheus8 offers the combined benefits of traditional microneedling and RF therapy, with enhanced results.

Morpheus8 safely and effectively firms skin, reduces pores, treats acne, minimizes scars, and fades stretch marks with fast, minimally invasive treatment and minimal recovery. Morpheus8 can treat wrinkles, discoloration, sun damage, textural concerns, or other surface irregularities on the face and body.

The areas most commonly treated with Morpheus8 are the face, neck, arms, chest, abdomen, legs, and buttocks. Unlike many other non-surgical skin resurfacing treatments, Morpheus8 is an excellent treatment option for all skin types and tones.

Morpheus8 Procedure and Recovery

When you come to our office on the day of your treatment, your providing specialist may apply numbing cream or administer local anesthesia.

While numbing cream provides for comfortable treatment in most cases, local anesthesia may be needed for deeper Morpheus8 treatment. As soon as the target area is sufficiently numb, your treatment can begin. Your treatment will begin following a spot test to check for adverse reactions.

Our highly-trained treatment specialist will move the Morpheus8 device over the treatment area, applying even treatment throughout the target area. Depending on the size of the treatment area, your session may take 15 minutes up to an hour. While there is no actual downtime after your treatment, you may experience redness, swelling, and itching for one to three days after your treatment. You will be able to apply makeup one to two days after treatment.

Morpheus8 Results

You may notice a difference in the condition of your treated skin within a few days of treatment. However, most patients report the most significant difference in their skin’s elasticity about three weeks after treatment. Results will continue to develop for about three months as collagen remodeling takes place.

The number of treatments you will need to reach desired results depends on the condition of your skin before treatment, your treatment goals, and how your skin responds to treatment. Most patients undergo one to three treatments. Results from Morpheus8 typically last about one year. At this point, you may need another series of treatments or a touch-up session to maintain your results.
