There are always new discoveries in plastic surgery. Those discoveries lead to new treatments that aren’t as invasive and still provide excellent results. Morpheus8 is an example of these discoveries. There are some Morpheus8 FAQ and benefits you should know.
What is Morpheus8?
Going over Morpheus8 FAQ and benefits can help prepare you for the fantastic things to come from the procedure. The first question many have is, “What is Morpheus8?” That is a valid question with a straightforward answer. Morpheus8 is a new microneedling device that can do a few things.
The device also uses radiofrequency alongside microneedling. The microneedling penetrates the dermis to a specific layer and then uses radiofrequency to heat that layer. The best way to describe the outcome is to think of shrinkwrap. Apply heat to shrinkwrap, and it tightens.
Morpheus8 does the same thing but to our skin. The procedure uses fractioned energy, which has been scientifically proven to remodel and rebuild collagen. The result is smoother, tighter skin.
Morpheus8 FAQ | Where can it be Used
We now know what Morpheus8 is and how it works. But the first question about it is where can it be used? It can be used in many different areas of the body. The most obvious area is the face and neck. You can also receive Morpheus8 treatments around the eyes, abdomen, back, and legs.
The most significant benefit of Morpheus8 is there is virtually no recovery time necessary. However, Morpheus8 is not a one-and-done procedure. Multiple sessions are required to get the best and longest-lasting result.
However, there is no set number of procedures; instead, they vary from situation to situation. Dr. Wulc will be able to give you a better idea of the number of treatments needed during your consultation.
When to Expect Results
The fact that multiple treatment sessions may be required leads to one of the other Morpheus8 FAQ and benefits. When will you see the results? Morpheus8 uses heat and radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production by the body; that means results will not be instant.
However, the results will be noticeable after a few days, even more so after three weeks. The body will continue to produce collagen at an accelerated rate for up to three months.
Who Can Use Morpheus8?
Some skin treatments won’t work on darker skin tones, and some won’t work on lighter skin tones. However, Morpheus8 is one procedure that can be used on all skin types. The microneedles penetrate the dermis to an underlying layer, which means there is no need to be concerned with moist, dry, light, or dark skin.
In fact, Morpheus8 is a treatment that can safely be combined with other therapies as well. You can combine Morpheus8 treatments with other InMode energy treatments, injectables, and more, some even in the same session.
Post Procedure Care
One of the most common of the Morpheus8 FAQ and benefits centers around post-procedure care. Ultimately, Dr. Wulc will provide all patients with after-care instructions. However, the basics are pretty simple, thanks to Morpheus8 being a minimally invasive procedure.
For example, makeup can be applied to the procedure site 1 to 2 days after treatment. There will be a bit of redness and micro lesions at the treatment site. Patients should use moisturizers and avoid direct sunlight to these areas. Patients can also use full-spectrum sunscreen every day.
Luckily, these post-care instructions will only need to be adhered to for a few days depending on the situation.
