What Is Morpheus8?

What Is Morpheus8? - Re-Nu Aesthetics
Aging can cause many changes in the body. Everyone experiences some loss of elasticity in the skin which can cause lines, folds, and wrinkles. Many people also find that as they age, it can be more difficult to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat on the abdomen, flanks, or other areas.  Morpheus8 can be used to improve the texture of the skin and contour the body through fat-reducing and skin-tightening technology. If you are interested in non-invasive ways to contour your body, reduce stretch marks, minimize the appearance of wrinkles, and more, we can help with our Morpheus8 treatments at Re-Nu Aesthetics in Los Angeles, CA. 

What Is Morpheus8? 

Morpheus8 is an RF microneedling platform that can be used on many different areas of the body including the face, abdomen, legs, and more. Using collagen stimulation and fat remodeling technologies, it can help to contour the body while making the skin smoother, tighter, and more even-textured. 

How Does Morpheus8 Work? 

Morpheus8 uses microneedling combined with radiofrequency energy to achieve results both on the surface of the skin and in the deeper layers of the skin. These two technologies work together to create more dramatic results than either could achieve alone, and the treatment can be done with very little downtime. Both microneedling and RF energy work to stimulate collagen production. 

Microneedling Platform

The Morpheus8 handpiece is equipped with tiny needles that penetrate the skin. Different settings can be used to achieve different depths. When the needles enter the skin, they create microchannels that your body will immediately begin to heal. During the healing process, the body will send fibroblasts to the area. These fibroblasts produce more collagen which is used to better support the skin. Additional collagen results in skin that is firmer and smoother with fewer lines and wrinkles. 

RF Technology

Radiofrequency energy stimulates the skin to produce collagen in a way that is similar to microneedling. When used on the skin, the radiofrequency energy becomes heat energy that heats the skin just enough to stimulate your body’s healing response. However, RF energy can also penetrate deeper into the skin and prompt this healing response at greater depths than microneedling can do by itself.

Benefits of Morpheus8 Treatments

Skin Tightening

If you have stretch marks or loose skin from pregnancy, weight gain and loss, or other causes, it can often be treated with the Morpheus8 platform. During the healing process, the skin can tighten, helping to reduce sagging skin and minimize the appearance of stretch marks and fine lines. This tightening effect can be seen on the face and neck as well as on other parts of the body. 

Body Contouring With Morpheus8 

While many of its anti-aging effects come from collagen stimulation during treatment, the radiofrequency energy in the device can also help to melt fat cells to sculpt the area. The combination of skin tightening and fat restructuring can produce effective body-sculpting results. 

Non-Surgical Anti-Aging

Morpheus8 treatments can provide many anti-aging benefits without the patient having to get a surgical facelift or other invasive procedures done. If you have sagging jowls, wrinkles on your neck area, a double chin, bags under the eyes, and more, you can lift and refresh your skin without incisions or scars. 

Can Be Used for Many Skin Types

Morpheus8 RF microneedling can be used for a wider variety of skin types and colors than other cosmetic treatments. While you should always check treatment suitability with your doctor before having any cosmetic treatments, microneedling is less restrictive and beneficial for a wide variety of people. 

What Do Morpheus8 Treatments Involve? 

You can expect Morpheus8 treatments to be relatively simple and painless. While you may feel a scratching sensation each time the needles penetrate your skin, topical numbing cream and other techniques can be used to limit your sensation and make it more comfortable.  Depending on which area you are having treated, we will choose different handpieces. A larger handpiece can be used for areas on the body such as the abdomen or legs, while a smaller handpiece is used for the face. We will begin the treatment by cleansing your skin to help avoid introducing any contaminants. Then we will treat each area, sometimes using multiple passes in one area to increase the effects.  Once the treatment is complete, you may notice that your skin is a little red. This means that your body has started its work of healing the area. You may also have tiny pinpoint scabs as the microchannels heal. These effects should subside within a few days, leaving your skin smooth and lifted. 

How Many Treatments Will You Need?  

Most patients need more than one treatment to achieve the full benefits of Morpheus8 RF microneedling. You may want to discuss receiving 4 or more treatments. Each treatment should be scheduled at least 4 weeks after the previous treatment so that your skin has time to heal. Your skin can continue to improve in the months after your treatments. While the healing and smoothing effects can be very long-lasting, you can schedule maintenance treatments each year to continue enjoying the benefits.
