What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a deep fractional remodeling device (consisting of 12-40 fine surgical pins) that addresses the adipose tissue (fat) on the face and body. Ideal areas of treatment are the lower face (jowls), chin, neck, eyes, double chin, mouth and forehead. In addition, areas of the body like arms, knees, legs, buttock or bra fat rolls respond well to this microneedling with radio frequency. Morpheus8 can contour areas for a smoother and naturally beautiful appearance. Morpheus8 can also perform fractional skin resurfacing and subdermal tissue coagulation that bridges the gap between fractional lasers and surgical procedures. The new resurfacing tip can improve the skin complexion by reducing skin irregularities and fine lines giving your skin a more youthful appearance. This all occurs within one session or in a series based on your desired outcome. Morpheus8 is deeper than the normal microneedling treatment so to make clients more comfortable, we offer Pro-Nox (laughing gas), topical numbing cream, facial blocks and ice to the treatment area.
Who is the best candidate for a Morpheus8 treatment?
The best candidate for Morpheus8 is anyone who is concerned with skin laxity, pore size, scarring, jowl development, deep and fine wrinkles, bags under the eye, double chin and crepey skin. Typically the person is between the ages of 25 and 80.
What is the recovery like?
After your Morpheus8 treatment, you can expect swelling, redness and possibly some bruising as it is causing a controlled injury to get your collagen and elastin jump started again. This will last about 3-5 days. For the first 3 days, you will be instructed on what products to apply to the treated area. After 3 days, you can apply camouflage make-up. Day 4-5 you will have slightly flakey skin. After 5-7 days, your skin is looking back to normal. You can go back to work the day after the procedure, but frequently clients who work, come in on Thursday evening or Friday and recover without make-up over the weekend. By Monday, you are good to go! Those who don’t work, often have Morpheus8 performed on Monday and recover during the week so they are ready to go on the weekend! We offer PRP as an add on service that will speed up the healing process.
How many treatments are needed?
The number vaires based on each individual's intrinsic and extrinsic factors such as: age, medical issues, skin health, and genetics. Typically a person in their 20-40's will need a single treatment yearly. For those older, a series of 3 treatments are often recommended.
How much does it cost?
Morpheus8 is not surgery and it is not a topical treatment, thus it is priced accordingly. Pricing starts at $400. When you come in for a consultation, a personalized plan will be discussed with you based on your specific concerns. There is special package pricing for those looking to have more than 1 Morpheus8 performed. CareCredit is offered for those looking for financial options.
