What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that targets the deeper layers of the skin with controlled thermal energy. It is part of the innovative Embrace RF technology that also includes Facetite and Accutite. This trio of therapies simultaneously tighten existing collagen and elastin, powerfully stimulate the production of new collagen, and remodel fat. The face, neck, and body can be lifted and tightened without incisions or surgery. Morpheus8 alone or in conjunction with Facetite or Accutite creates a lifted and refined skin contour and texture.
What is the benefit of Morpheus8 Radiofrequency Fractional Energy?
Fractional RF energy is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles, rebuild collagen (tighten skin), and remodel fat. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with little downtime and no discomfort. The advantage of RF micro needling is the surface of the skin is kept intact, while the energy to stimulate rejuvenation is delivered to a customizable depth beneath the skin where collagen and elastin are produced, and unwanted fat may reside. This allows for better skin contouring and tightening as well as wrinkle reduction with a more comfortable patient experience.
What is the difference between Morpheus8, Accutite, and Facetite?
Each technology on the EmbraceRF platform has a unique function. Morpheus8 consists of radio frequency micropins that penetrate the surface of the skin to deliver controlled thermal energy to a preset depth depending on the area treated, and whether the goal is to tighten skin, address wrinkles, melt fat, or all of the above. Accutite and Facetite are small cannulas that are inserted underneath the skin to tighten skin, re contour, and melt fat. Facetite works well on larger areas of the neck and body, and Accutite is designed for very delicate area of the face, such as around the eyes, brows, nasolabial folds, and under the chin to lift and contour. Each procedure can be done alone, but work synergistically together to increase skin tightening by up to 40% creating the complete nonsurgical, designer face and neck lift with total skin rejuvenation!
What areas can Morpheus8 treat?
Morpheus8 can be used on any area of the face or body that would benefit from skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, and refined contouring. Morpheus8 is an incredible treatment for the face and neck, especially in conjunction with Facetite or Accutite . Other common treatment areas include scars ( acne or surgical), knees, stretch marks, and labia.
How many Morpheus8 treatments will I need?
Depending on your particular needs and desires, 1-3 treatments are typical. Morpheus8 Treatments are permanent, but skin continues to age consistent with lifestyle and genetics. Skin needs to be encouraged to continue to create new collagen and elastin in order to maintain a youthful appearance. Therefore, subsequent treatments may be recommended every 18 months to 2 years as part of a rejuvenation maintenance plan.
How quickly will I see results with Morpheus8?
Some tightening will be visible immediately. New collagen and elastin formation begins after about 4 weeks, and becomes most noticeable about 3-6 months after treatment, and continues to improve up to a year.
Is Morpheus8 suitable for all skin types?
The benefit of Morpheus8’s color blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types.
What can I expect during a Morpheus8 procedure?
AURAE MD places the highest value on patient safety, comfort, and achieving the best possible results. Therefore a thorough consultation with Dr. Emami is done prior to any procedure. On the day of the procedure, a local, numbing medication and some oral, relaxing medications will be administered to ensure comfort. The procedure itself takes about an hour. We do ask that patient’s have a responsible adult to drive them home afterwards.
What kind of post-procedure care is required with Morpheus8?
An ointment is applied for 48 hours after a treatment. After that, moisturizer, makeup, and sunscreen may be applied. Mild swelling and redness, and minimal to no bruising may persist for a week, but may be covered by makeup such as Oxygenetix medical-grade, breathable foundation. There is no oozing or discomfort afterwards. It is important to avoid direct sun exposure, and use a good, broad spectrum sunscreen such as AURAE MD BB Rx every day. In addition to reducing a future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles, slow the aging process, and protect your results
Can Morpheus8 be used in combination with other treatments?
Yes, Morpheus8 is often combined with other procedures for a truly customizable rejuvenation plan. The most effective is the AURAE MD nonsurgical face and neck lift with Morpheus8, Facetite, or Accutite, Botox, Jeauveau, and fillers such as the Y Lift can be added to create the complete scarless facelift with minimal downtime and completely natural looking results!
