“Morpheus8” may sound like a supervillain in the latest blockbuster movie, but it is actually a state-of-the art way to give you beautiful skin. Read on for more information about Morpheus8, how it works, and what it can do for you!
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 combines the practice of microneedling, which has been in use for years, with the latest technology – radiofrequency energy.
Microneedling is the process of using tiny needles (about the size of acupuncture needles) to create “micro-injuries” in the skin. This may not sound like something you would want to have done, but there is good reason for doing it – these tiny injuries stimulate the healing process, during which new collagen, elastin, and skin cells are created.
Morpheus8 adds radiofrequency energy to the microneedling treatment. This energy gets down even further into the skin to stimulate reconstruction of the skin at a deeper level.
What can Morpheus8 treat?
Morpheus8 can help to give your skin a refreshed, beautiful look. It is suitable for most patients no matter the skin type. It is used to treat
• Irregular skin texture and tone
• Sun-damaged skin
• Sagging skin
• Acne and acne scars
• Enlarged pores
Morpheus8 treatment takes less than an hour, and you can choose to use a topical anesthesia if you would like. After the treatment, you may have some swelling and redness, but this will go away within a week and can be treated with an over-the-counter pain medication. It may take some time to see results, as the skin starts to rebuild itself. There is no downtime needed after the procedure – you can get right back to your daily activities as soon as you leave your doctor’s office. However, you should try to avoid the sun immediately after the procedure, and make sure to wear sunscreen when you do go outside (always good advice).
It may seem odd that injuring your skin with tiny wounds can improve how your skin looks – but it’s true! And microneedling is even more effective when it is combined with radiofrequency. The procedure is Morpheus8, and it’s available at Revitalize! CNY. Call today for an appointment, at (315) 251-1234.
