Unlike standard microneedling procedures, Morpheus8’s microneedles can be adjusted to reach a depth of up to 8 millimeters. This allows for treatment to be customized to the client’s needs and combined with radiofrequency thermal energy to treat a wide range of conditions that traditional microneedling may not be able to accomplish.
Some patients can achieve their desired results in one to three treatments. Other patients may need to schedule a series of treatments performed over several weeks. Your treatment plan will be discussed during the initial consultation to determine the ideal number of treatments for each patient.
Patient comfort is our top priority during treatment. Before the procedure, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the skin. After 30 minutes, the area will be checked to ensure the patient is ready to receive treatment. The patient may experience a warming sensation on his or her skin with little discomfort.
Patients may experience mild swelling, redness, tenderness, or temporary bruising which should subside within a few days. Patients may also experience tiny points on the skin from the microneedling that will crust over and flake off within a few days.
As a minimally invasive procedure, most patients are able to return to their normal activities the day after treatment. We recommend patients gently moisturize the area and avoid direct sun exposure for at least one week. However, if Morpheus8 is used in conjunction with other procedures, the downtime period may increase depending on the more intensive procedure.
