What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a Health Canada approved treatment for improving the visual appearance of aging skin. By delivering precise Radio Frequency signals in order to heat adipose (fat) tissues in the subdermal layer, Morpheus8 promotes a natural process called neocollagenesis. A natural way to reduce skin wrinkles and improve skin elasticity!
How Does Morpheus8 Work?
The Morpheus8 applicator delivers deep-tissue stimulation via Radio Frequency waves that are precisely tuned for each area of the body. These RF waves heat up the adipose (fat) tissues in the layer underneath visible skin, promoting the creation of new collagen cells. Collagen cells are responsible for replacing dead skin cells, and maintaining elasticity and structure. As we age, collagen cells become harder and harder to create.
Do Treatments Hurt?
Morpheus8 is a minimally-invasive procedure. The applicator tips measure 4mm in length, and are 250 microns in diameter. Mild discomfort may be experienced during treatment.
What Can I Expect?
You and your doctor will customize your Morpheus8 treatment plan, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired outcome. Mild inflammation and increased immune system response around the area for the first 1-4 days, redness of the skin for up to 7 days. Neocollagenesis drastically improves 30+ days after treatment, although visible results can be seen within a week or two.
Is There Any After-Care?
As discussed above, mild inflammation (due to the heating of adipose tissues) can be discomforting. It’s suggested to apply cooling to the area and apply antibiotic ointment for 1-3 days post-treatment. Avoid the application of makeup or any other cosmetic products to the area until at least 4 days post-treatment.
