It’s the celebrity micro-needling treatment that’s taken the beauty world by storm … but what is Morpheus8 and how can it help discover a younger looking you?
Morpheus8 is a state-of-the-art fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. By targeting these deeper layers of the skin, areas of the face and body can be re-modelled to reveal a more radiant, youthful appearance. It is the first and only device to target the fat sub-dermally in order to morph the ageing facial features, using a fractional device with programmable penetration depth and energy delivery to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and skin tone. The 24 coated pins penetrate into the subdermal tissue, coagulating the fat and contracting connective tissue. Simultaneously, directional RF energy generates bulk sub-necrotic heating in the dermis. It is the perfect solution for patients who have skin laxity, with overlying skin surface irregularities.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED? Morpheus8 can be used on any areas that can benefit from resurfacing and subdermal renewal. The most commonly treated areas include the face, jawline, neck, peri-orbital area, abdomen, thighs, legs, and buttocks.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE RECOMMENDED? Following a consultation we can advise on the optimal number of sessions to achieve the right result for you. Treatment times and frequency will be specifically tailored to obtain the optimal results.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS? Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically after three weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF FRACTIONATED ENERGY? Radiofrequency (RF) energy is a scientifically proven method that helps remodel and rebuild collagen. Because the treatment is minimally invasive and uses a matrix of micro pins to renew the deeper layers of the skin, there is minimal downtime.
CAN ANYONE USE MORPHEUS8? The benefit of Morpheus8’s colour blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types and tones.
CAN MORPHEUS8 BE USED IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER TREATMENTS? Yes, it can be combined with injectables to achieve more extensive results. Please discuss with Dr Julia Sen to work out the most effective time-scale.
WHEN CAN I PUT MAKE-UP ON AFTER TREATMENT? Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied one to two days afterwards. Patients should expect to see micro lesions for a few days and slight redness.
WHAT KIND OF POST PROCEDURE CARE IS REQUIRED? Patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a broad spectrum sunscreen every day.
