How long does Morpheus 8 last?
Morpheus8 is a skin tightening treatment that uses the science of regenerative medicine and promotes collagen and elastin production to help address some of the most common signs of aging, including skin complexion issues, fine lines and wrinkles, and laxity.. It can take up to 3 treatments performed over the course of 1 year to obtain desired results. Results are permanent, but as we continue to age maintenance treatments once per year are recommended.
What is the downtime for Morpheus 8?
Depending on the intensity of the treatment, patients should expect about a full week of downtime. Body treatments may take a little longer – up to two weeks. Morpheus treatments will not impede your day to day lifestyle. There is no pain or discomfort during or after your procedure. However, we do ask that our patients refrain from exercise for about a week post-procedure. Patients can expect redness, swelling, and some bruising – this is all part of a normal reaction to the treatment. Small scabs may form in the area treated, but these will flake off over the course of 2 weeks. Post-procedure safe makeup, such as Oxygenetix, can be used after 72 hours to conceal any redness.
