Morpheus8/Microneedling is a highly advanced skin tightening and toning method that works to combat the signs of aging by combining microneedling with radiofrequency waves.
Morpheus8/Microneedling is a skin-tightening treatment that stimulates collagen regeneration on the skin’s surface with needs. By stimulating surface-level collagen and utilizing radiofrequency waves, the production of elastin and collagen is accelerated at deeper levels. Combining radiofrequency with microneedling enhances the anti-aging capabilities of this treatment, contributing to patients achieving skin that is smoother, tighter, and more youthful in appearance.
Collagen and elastin are proteins in the body that undergo a natural decline as an individual ages. These declines contribute to the signs of aging such as a loss of firmness and skin elasticity. This can lead to wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, and an overall more aged appearance. By punctuating small wounds in the skin microneedling stimulates the body’s healing response which in turn increases collagen production.
Radiofrequency waves are capable of penetrating even deeper levels to help increase the further production of collagen and elastin, which helps patients achieve rejuvenated and refreshed skin.
When it comes to how many Morpheus8/Microneedling treatments are required, the total amount will vary based on each individual’s skin concerns and needs. The team of professionals at Dr. Phillips Aesthetics will work with each patient to develop a custom Morpheus8/Microneedling treatment plan tailored to their unique needs.
Most patients will begin to notice the benefits of Morpheus8/Microneedling after just one session. Typically, however, many patients will undergo between two and four treatments to achieve their desired results.
Your treatment plan will be designed with your skin concerns and overall health and wellness in mind. The results of Morpheus8/Microneedling tend to last for about a year, at which point some patients elect to return for a touch-up appointment.
By taking the proper preparatory steps you can ensure your Morpheus8/Microneedling treatment is as smooth and effective as possible. In preparation for Morpheus8/Microneedling, it is advised that patients stop blood-thinning medications and discontinue anti-aging products one week before the treatment.
Two days before, abstain from alcohol, and consider optional Arnica tablets to minimize bruising. On the day of the procedure, you can cleanse your face and shower as usual but refrain from applying creams or lotions, and ensure that the treatment areas are clean and free from makeup. Wear sunscreen beforehand and refrain from engaging in activities that could irritate the skin. These precautions optimize the procedure’s effectiveness and minimize potential complications.
Practicing good skin care following Morpheus8/Microneedling is instrumental in maximizing your results.
It is crucial to attend to the affected area, especially as you may experience some mild swelling in the upcoming days. Allowing your skin to heal fully over the week following the procedure before returning to your regular skincare routine is the best practice.
Sleeping slightly elevated in the days after your procedure and minimizing sun exposure will aid in healing. You should avoid tanning beds and other activities that could irritate the affected area for at least ten days following the procedure.
How quickly you will notice the full results of Morpheus8/Microneedling will vary amongst patients depending on their skin concerns and other health factors.
Even after just one session, the initiation of collagen and elastin production will begin, but this process requires time, and full effects will not be immediately apparent.
Patients may begin to observe some preliminary changes within the first few weeks; however, it is most likely they will enjoy the complete rejuvenating effects of Morpheus8/Microneedling around three months after the initial treatment.
