Morpheus 8 Radio Frequency Microneedling Treatment in Marina Del Ray, CA
Morpheus 8 is a minimally invasive procedure that provides skin rejuvenation benefits. It combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to achieve impressive results.
Like the traditional microneedling procedure, Morpheus 8 works by making micro-punctures in your skin with tiny needles while delivering RF energy to facilitate tissue remodeling. Since the dermis and epidermis are treated in this procedure, it works to activate the natural healing response of your body, which stimulates new collagen and elastin production in three layers of skin.
However, if you aren’t convinced that this procedure is the right one for you, keep reading. You can also contact our Marina Del Ray office to discuss any questions or concerns you have about the procedure with our trained and experienced technicians.
Benefits of Morpheus 8
Morpheus 8 is an effective, innovative skin care procedure. It utilizes both microneedling and RF energy. The combination of these in one procedure helps to enhance the results achieved and ensure they are noticeable sooner than mono-treatments.
Some of the most touted advantages of this skin treatment include:
- It’s a minimally invasive procedure
- It’s a safe procedure for all types of skin tones (including darker skin)
- Safe for almost any part of the body
- Works to diminish age spots, scarring, mild cases of sagging, and wrinkles
Who Is a Candidate for Morpheus 8 Treatment?
Morpheus 8 candidates usually have skin that has mild sagging issues in different parts of the body. While this is true, the treatment is mainly used on the face and neck.
Patients who want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars are also eligible for Morpheus 8 treatment. Unlike other laser treatments, candidates for this procedure are not limited to only those who have lighter skin tones.
If you are dealing with more serious cases of sagging, fine lines, or wrinkles, the treatment is a good starting point. It may be smart to add on other treatments we offer, such as BOTOX, which can help ensure the more pronounced signs of aging are eliminated. You can discuss what option is right for you by calling our Marina Del Ray office and speaking to our experienced technicians.
What to Expect During the Morpheus 8 Treatment Process?
If you are interested in this procedure because of all the benefits it offers, learning more about what to expect during the procedure may be helpful.
When you come to the office, our technicians will likely apply a numbing cream to the area being treated. This is done to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure. Once the cream is effective, the handheld device used for the Morpheus 8 treatment will be guided across the treatment area. As it moves across your skin, the microneedles will puncture your skin and the RF heat will follow. All treatments are customized to your needs and the RF energy can be adjusted to reach various depths and ensure optimal improvement.
The entire procedure takes around 60 minutes (on average). This varies based on the treatment area. The entire time for the procedure, including giving the numbing cream time to work, will take around two to three hours. During the process, you may feel some discomfort; however, our technicians will work to ensure it is minimal.
After the procedure is complete, you may see some redness and swelling. There is also the possibility of bruising for a few days after the treatment is done. Your technician will give you patient-specific after-care instructions to ensure quick and proper healing and to help you see the best results possible from the treatment.
Is the Morpheus 8 Treatment Painful?
There are some patients who experience slight to moderate discomfort when the handheld device is guided over their skin on the treatment area. However, the numbing cream used should be effective in reducing the pain. If necessary, you can speak to your technician about additional pain-relieving methods. We will work to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
What to Expect After the Morpheus 8 Treatment?
Usually, the Morpheus 8 treatment won’t require an extended recovery period. Most people can go back to work or their other daily activities right after the treatment is complete. However, there are some who may want to postpone any social events or occasions for several days. This is because there are some potential minor side effects, such as bruising, swelling, and redness that appear in the treatment area.
Are There Any Side Effects to the Morpheus 8 Treatment?
The side effects of the Morpheus 8 treatment are usually minimal. You may see some swelling, scabbing, redness, or itching; however, these issues will fade within a few days of the treatment. If you are worried about the possible side effects that may occur, you can contact our Marina Del Ray office and speak to our experienced technicians.
How Long Will the Effects of the Morpheus 8 Treatment Last?
The initial results of the treatment will be seen within a few weeks. However, the full results will be seen in the three months after the treatment. Usually, one to three treatments are needed for optimal results; however, this varies from one person to another. Our team can speak to you about your goals and help set up a treatment schedule that works for you and your needs.
