What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks will reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process. Morpheus8 is very unique as it can penetrate up to 4mm deep, which results in fat melting so you can truly contour and transform different parts of the body.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Morpheus8 can be used on any area that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal. These are typically locations of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration, or acne scarring. The most commonly treated areas are the lower face and neck.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Depending on your Morpheus8 treatment plan you can expect to have between 1-3 treatment sessions. It also depends on how aggressive your treatment is and the severity of laxity and skin quality. The best results are achieved after 3 treatment sessions.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
Visible results can be seen after a few days, but usually, after 3 weeks the most noticeable results appear. Continual improvements occur up to 3 months after treatment.
How Long Should I Wait in Between Treatments?
It is best to wait 4 weeks between each treatment session. Our team can work on a treatment schedule that works best for you.
What Is the Benefit of Fractionated Energy?
Fractionated radiofrequency energy is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen and fat. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with minimal patient downtime.
Can Anyone Use Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 has a color-blind technology that allows it to be used on all skin types including darker skin tones.
What Is the Benefit of Radiofrequency Energy?
Radiofrequency energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to rejuvenate the collagen. The treatment will improve skin texture and complexion for a more radiant and younger appearance. Morpheus8 treatments can treat some of the most common signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin as well as reduce the appearance of issues like acne scars and stretch marks.
Your Morpheus8 Consultation
A Morpheus8 consultation involves a detailed conversation of your appearance goals. Our medical professionals will assess your skin concerns and discuss how Morpheus8 can benefit you. This will help you set realistic expectations for the treatment.
Please provide your complete medical history to help us ensure that the treatment will be safe for you. We will ask about details like your current medications, past treatments, allergies, and any pre-existing conditions.
How to Prepare for a Morpheus8 Treatment
To get the best results from your Morpheus8 treatment, take a break from tanning beds or spray tans for at least two weeks before your session. Avoid sun exposure and sunburns to prevent skin damage.
Avoid non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) starting 10 to 14 days before your Morpheus8 appointment. These medications increase the risk of excessive bruising and swelling.
A week before your Morpheus8 treatment, refrain from applying retinol, tretinoin, glycolic, or salicylic acids. These skincare products will make your skin overly sensitive and may risk skin damage if combined with a fractionated radiofrequency treatment.
What to Do on the Day of Your Morpheus8 Treatment
Come to the clinic with a bare face—do not wear makeup or apply any skincare products prior to a Morpheus8 session. Your face will be washed with mild soap before the treatment, and numbing cream will be applied for a more comfortable experience.
Can Morpheus8 Be Used in Combination With Other Treatments?
Morpheus8 can be used in the same treatment session or a few days after other treatments.
When Can I Put Make-Up on After Treatment?
Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week depending on treatment settings.
What Kind of Post Procedure Care Is Required?
Patients should use a gentle fragrance-free moisturizer on the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use broad-spectrum sunscreen every day to help reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process.
How Much Will My Morpheus8 Treatment Cost?
The cost of your Morpheus8 treatment in Bonita Springs will depend on the number of treatments sessions needed to properly treat the issues you want to address. Price and payment options will be discussed during your consultation.
