Morpheus8 – RF Microneedling Nashville
Full body, minimally invasive skin and tissue remodeling technology.
Everyone ages at a different rate depending upon genetics, external factors and lifestyle. As we age, our body’s production of its structural proteins – collagen and elastin – begins to slow down. Over time, this causes skin to lose its firmness and elasticity. When this happens, the skin begins to sag and our contours lose definition. Though surgical treatments can effectively address the issues of sagging skin, until recently there has not been a non-surgical option to produce effective results. Now there is Morpheus8 that combines the benefits of microneedling with radio frequency, providing a powerful treatment to address damaged or aging skin.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a skin rejuvenation procedure that combines microneedling and radio frequency energy to stimulate collagen production. This powerful combination of microneedling and RF energy target deeper layers of the tissue under the skin that traditional treatments allowing for better collagen remodeling with little to no downtime.
What can Morpheus8 treat?
- Mild sagging on the face and body
- Deep lines, creases and wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Enlarged pores
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin texture
What are the benefits of Morpheus8?
- Increases collagen and elastin production
- Reduces the appearance of jowls (chin and jawline), nasolabial folds (smile lines) and sagging skin below the eyes
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Smooths and tightens mild sagging skin across the body, including neck, legs and abdomen
- Softens and fades the appearance of stretch marks and acne scarring
- Improves areas of skin discoloration
Morpheus8 is a great treatment that can be combined with additional procedures for full face or body rejuvenation. Popular combined treatments include PRP, facelift, breast lift, neck liposuction, FaceTite and BodyTite.
How is Morpheus8 different from other microneedling treatments?
Standard microneedling treatments only penetrate the skin to a depth of approximately 1 millimeter. Morpheus8 can be adjusted to reach a depth of up to 4 millimeters for the face and up to 7 millimeters for the body. The ability to customize depth combined with radiofrequency (RF) thermal energy allows for a more powerfully effective treatment than other traditional microneedling devices.
What is the recovery time for this treatment?
Downtime with Morpheus8 is minimal. You can return to most of your normal activities right away. You may experience some redness and mild swelling or soreness in the treatment area for a few days. We do advise that you do not apply make-up for 24 hours post treatment, avoid direct sun exposure, and wear protective sunblock for up to 3 days post-treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Most people achieve their desired results in one to three sessions. Your treatment plan will be determined at your initial consultation to tailor the best rejuvenation plan for you based upon the texture, tone, and laxity of your skin. For optimal outcome, we recommend a series of 3 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart.
Is Morpheus8 painful?
The procedure is relatively painless, even at the deeper penetration levels. To ensure your comfort, a topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area. You can expect to feel a slight prickling sensation followed by a feeling of warmth. In addition, Pronox is available if desired.
