What Is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is an innovative skin rejuvenation technology that revolutionizes the way we achieve youthful and radiant skin. This state-of-the-art device combines the benefits of microneedling with advanced radiofrequency energy. Using a matrix of tiny needles, Morpheus8 gently penetrates the skin, delivering targeted radiofrequency heat at varying depths. This technique serves a dual purpose: firstly, it stimulates the natural collagen and elastin production – the essential building blocks of healthy skin. Secondly, it effectively remodels the underlying layers of the skin.

Treatment Areas

Morpheus8 Michigan is a versatile treatment used on various body parts to address various skin concerns. The most common areas of treatment include:

Morpheus8 is highly effective in rejuvenating facial skin, reducing wrinkles, and tightening sagging areas. It’s particularly beneficial for treating the lower face and neck, where signs of aging are often most visible.

The treatment is used to enhance skin laxity and texture on the neck and décolletage, areas that are prone to aging but often neglected in skincare routines.
Morpheus8 can help reduce the appearance of stretch on the abdomen.

The Benefits of Morpheus8 Treatment

Morpheus8 is generally suitable for different skin types. It is a versatile and adaptable treatment that has the following benefits:

Skin Rejuvenation and Tightening

Morpheus8 is renowned for its exceptional ability to rejuvenate and tighten loose skin. By stimulating collagen production and remodeling the deeper skin layers, it effectively restores a firmer, more youthful skin appearance.

Treatment of Acne Scars and Stretch Marks

Morpheus8 is also beneficial in treating acne scars and stretch marks. The technology’s deep penetration of the skin helps remodel scar tissue and improve the appearance of stretch marks, leading to a more even and aesthetically pleasing skin surface.

Improvement in Skin Texture and Tone

Morpheus8 significantly improves the overall skin tone and texture. It addresses uneven skin surfaces, including roughness or irregularities, enhancing the skin’s natural smoothness and radiance.

Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

One of the advantages of Morpheus8 is its effectiveness in minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment smooths out these age-related imperfections, resulting in a smoother, more refreshed facial appearance.

The Morpheus8
Treatment Procedure

Prior to the Morpheus8 treatment at Illuum Cosmetic Surgery, 
patients undergo a thorough consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeons to discuss their desired goals and assess their suitability for the Morpheus8 procedure. Pre-procedure instructions typically include:

The Morpheus8 procedure begins with thoroughly cleansing the targeted area to remove any makeup, oil, or dirt. In order to ensure comfort during the treatment, a topical anesthetic will be applied. The Morpheus8 device, equipped with tiny needles, is then passed over the skin. These needles create micro-injuries while simultaneously delivering radiofrequency energy at predetermined depths, effectively heating the deeper layers 
of the skin. Depending on the size and details of the treatment area, 
the entire process typically takes 30 to 60 minutes.

Who Is an Ideal Candidate for the Morpheus8 Procedure?

Morpheus8 is suitable for individuals seeking non-surgical solutions for skin rejuvenation. Ideal candidates are those who:

Morpheus8 allows individuals with darker skin tones to benefit with less risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Meanwhile, this treatment may not be suitable 
for everyone, as there are specific contraindications and considerations to consider. This includes: individuals with active skin infections or certain skin diseases in the treatment area; those grappling with severe active acne, which may necessitate prior management; pregnant or breastfeeding women, for whom the treatment is generally not recommended; individuals with metal implants in the treatment area who may not be suitable candidates; and those with skin sensitivities or allergies to the topical anesthetics used during the procedure, who should discuss alternative options with their practitioner.

Recovery After Morpheus8
Microneedling Treatment

Recovery after Morpheus8 treatment is typically swift and straightforward, with several considerations. Most patients experience minimal downtime, allowing them to resume normal activities within a day or two after the treatment. It’s typical for the treated area to exhibit temporary redness and feel similar to a mild sunburn sensation for a few hours to a couple of days.
During the recovery phase, it’s essential to use mild skincare products and avoid direct sun exposure. The application of a broad-spectrum sunscreen is crucial to safeguard the healing skin. Additionally, maintaining skin hydration and adhering to any specific post-care instructions provided by our team at Illuum Cosmetic Surgery is fundamental for ensuring a smooth and successful recovery.

Results of Morpheus8 Procedure

The outcomes of Morpheus8 are both immediate and progressive 
in nature. Initial improvements in skin texture and tone become apparent almost immediately after the treatment. However, the most substantial and enduring results manifest over the subsequent weeks or up to 3 months as the body’s natural collagen production is stimulated. Optimal rejuvenation typically becomes evident a few months post-treatment, marked by continued enhancements in skin firmness, smoothness, and overall appearance. The results of Morpheus8 can last for several years with the appropriate sun protection and skin care. Some patients may opt for periodic treatments to maintain and prolong their rejuvenated appearance.

In Michigan, a single session of Morpheus8 ranges from $500 to $1,500. However, the exact cost can vary depending on the specific areas being treated and the number of sessions recommended by our experienced practitioners.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Morpheus8 combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy, differentiating it from traditional microneedling. While both procedures involve using tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin, Morpheus8 goes a step further by delivering controlled radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper skin layers. This dual-action approach stimulates collagen production more effectively, leading to superior skin tightening, improved texture, and reduced wrinkles and scars compared to traditional microneedling alone.
Morpheus8 treatment is generally well-tolerated by most patients. A topical anesthetic is applied before the Morpheus8 procedure to minimize discomfort. Patients may feel some mild heat and tingling during the treatment, but most individuals report minimal pain or discomfort.
The duration of a Morpheus8 session may fluctuate based on the specific treatment area and the complexity of the procedure. Generally, a Morpheus8 session can range from 30 minutes to an hour. Your practitioner will offer guidance during your consultation for a more precise estimation. 
Results from Morpheus8 are both immediate and progressive. Some initial improvements in skin texture and tone can be noticed immediately after the treatment.
