How is Morpheus8 done?

Morpheus8 treatment uses handpieces with fractional tips with microneedle configuration. The devices vary slightly depending on whether or not the requested treatment area is on the face (smaller treatment areas) or on the body (larger treatment areas).

The Morpheus8 devices will cover the treatment area and deliver RF energy to multiple subdermal depths. With the ability to deliver multiple-depth energy treatments in intervals lasting no longer than a few milliseconds, this process is quick and with minimal discomfort. This delivery also minimizes injury to the skin due to its efficient nature, and is safe on most skin types.

Before the procedure a topical numbing cream will be used on the treatment area. Morpheus8 does not require the use of IV sedation or anesthesia. Your expert at Derrow Dermatology will then utilize the radio frequency devices equipped with a custom variation of micro-pins catered to the client.

Depending on the size of the treatment area(s), the total procedure time can vary, with most procedures lasting around 1.5 hours.

Post-procedure and results

After the procedure the patient can return to daily activities without significant discomfort. Swelling and bruising is minimal at worst, and can be controlled with the use of an ice pack. Patients that have treatment on the face may note that their face feels a bit tight after the procedure. This is natural and will fade after a few days at most. Patients often will feel completely back to normal after only an hour or so.

Results are both immediate and gradual. Following the procedure patients should notice an immediate improvement in their appearance. As recovery continues, improvement continues as well. Collagen in the skin will tighten the treatment area, yielding significant results.

Final results generally occur at or around the 4-6 week mark. Patients will see a tighter, younger appearance in their treatment area, and may even notice improved skin complexion as well. After analyzing results, your Derrow Dermatology expert may recommend additional treatments if additional improvements can be made to reach a patient’s aesthetic goals.
