Body Skin Firming and Tightening with Morpheus 8 (RF Microneedling)

Treatment

Tone your trouble spots and tighten your skin with Morpheus8 (radiofrequency microneedling)

Overview

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive, advanced deep fractional RF (radiofrequency) microneedling treatment which can be used on both the face and body. Morpheus8 helps to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, reduces the appearance and cellulite and overall skin tone and texture. Morpheus8 combines the power of radiofrequency and micro-needling to help renew many areas of the face and body.

How it works

RF energy is delivered through bipolar arrays of pin electrodes providing a triple action of sub-necrotic bulk heating, coagulation of fat and connective tissue, and ablation. The result is improvement in skin surface irregularities, skin tone, laxity, fine lines, wrinkles, and indented scars

Why we use Morpheus 8 for the body?

Morpheus8 is unique in targeting and strengthening the Fibro-Septal Network (FSN) skin-fat matrix, resulting in improved skin appearance and reduced irregularities on the face and body. Fractionated RF energy is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen and fat. This assists with overall skin concerns, with face and body remodelling in areas such as the abdomen, thighs, flanks and buttocks. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with almost no downtime. The device offers a range of settings that can be customized for patient’s condition and treatment goal.

Expected result

Immediately after your treatment most patients will experience a clinical endpoint of erythema (redness) for 1-3 days, however for more aggressive treatments this may last longer. Slight to moderate oedema (swelling) and mild to moderate sunburn sensation are also common post treatment and may last 1-3 days. Skin may crust and peel for 2-7 days depending on the treatment setting.
Improvement of the texture, tone, and overall appearance of your skin is visible within just a few weeks. This continues to improve over time, with full skin tightening and optimal results appearing around 3 months after treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

Depending on your Morpheus8 treatment regime you can expect to have between 1-3 sessions. Generally, one assertive, strong treatment is all that needed. However, it may require longer downtime of 10-14 days. For those patients who opt to have more moderate treatment program, one treatment a month for three month is required.

How long do result last?

Since RF technology helps boost collagen production over time, results will continue to improve up to 3 months after the initial treatment. Patients may choose to have once a year maintenance treatment to ensure results are long-lasting. It is also safe and very common to incorporate other aesthetic treatments to complement their Morpheus8 results.

Dose Morpheus8 Treatment Hurt?

Although Morpheus8 uses needles, it’s not usually painful. Any discomfort that is felt during the treatment is often very tolerable. Our team will also apply a numbing cream to ensure optimal comfort during your session. Energy level, needle penetration depth can also be adjusted to suit patient tolerability.

Can other treatments be incorporated with the Morpheus8?

It is most common that Morpheus8 patients have several other aesthetic treatments performed at the same time to address other ageing signs and symptoms that skin tightening and lifting along does not address. Anti-wrinkle injection, dermal fillers, IPL, thread lifting can be performed at the same time.

Can Morpheus8 also help stretch marks?

Yes. While stretch marks are harmless, there are a variety of ways to reduce the appearance of stretch marks for smooth-looking skin. Morpheus8 is an advanced technology that can also help to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. 

Are there any significant risks with “Morpheus Lift”?

There are always risks with any medical procedure, even anti-wrinkle injection, soft tissue fillers, and other laser treatments have potential complications, but Morpheus8 has advanced safety features and internal thermal feedback make the risk substantially less than other popular resurfacing lasers. However, there is always the rare risk of scars and pigment issues, but these would be discussed at the time of your consultation and minimized with the parameter and settings unique to your skin.
