What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus is a game-changing fractional treatment technology for subdermal adipose remodeling and skin contraction. Commonly known as RF microneedling, Morpheus is a great way to jumpstart collagen production and shrink skin from within the deeper layers for effective body contouring without surgery. During the treatment process, tiny needles generate wounds in the skin to jumpstart its wound-healing processes. At the same time, radiofrequency energy generates gentle heat to contract skin and generate new collagen. The result is smooth, renewed skin.
The best candidates for Morpheus are those looking for effective skin tightening without surgery or downtime. Loose skin usually creates wrinkles and folds in areas on the body after weight loss or as a natural result of aging. This means that it’s important that Dr. Diktaban determines whether Morpheus can achieve your cosmetic goals or if you should consider surgical alternatives. Morpheus can be an even more effective option when paired with other mini-surgical options, so our team can discuss your best options. It’s important that you be able to commit to a package of treatments for best results.
What Happens During Morpheus8?
Morpheus is a quick and easy treatment that can be performed right in our state-of-the-art Manhattan practice. It begins with a topical anesthetic at your treatment area so that you’re comfortable. Then, the advanced handpiece is applied to the skin to generate new collagen and stimulate contraction. During this process, the unique silicone-coated pins administer bipolar radiofrequency energy to generate heat and contract the skin. Once complete, active ingredients are introduced into the skin at the treatment area to further stimulate new collagen and keep the skin healthy. This process can take less than an hour to complete based on your unique treatment areas, after which you can return home.
Results and Recovery
It’s common to feel some sensitivity after treatment, and you may also experience redness and minor swelling. There’s no downtime required, although it’s important to take care of your skin according to Dr. Diktaban’s instructions. This means keeping the treatment area protected from sunlight and dryness. You should be sure to review your skincare regimen with our team so you can refrain from using products that might compromise your results, especially if you opt for treatment on your face or neck. Most patients benefit from a package of treatments, so Dr. Diktaban will ensure you know what to expect and how often to schedule your sessions.
