How Morpheus8 Works with the Optimas System
Benefits of Morpheus8
Morpheus8 stimulates collagen production and cellular turnover, resulting in a healthier, more youthful complexion. It can address various skin concerns, such as uneven texture, enlarged pores, and sun damage.
By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, Morpheus8 helps to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, providing a more youthful appearance.
Acne scar improvement
Morpheus8’s microneedling technology breaks up scar tissue and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells, effectively reducing the appearance of acne scars.
Enhanced skin tightening
The RF energy used in the Morpheus8 treatment tightens the skin and improves its elasticity, resulting in a firmer, more contoured appearance.
The Morpheus8 Treatment Process
Before undergoing Morpheus8 treatment, you’ll have a consultation with a qualified practitioner to discuss your specific concerns, treatment goals, and expected results.
Preparing for the treatment
To prepare for the treatment, you may be advised to avoid sun exposure and certain medications that can increase the risk of bruising or bleeding.
The treatment session
During the treatment session, your practitioner will apply a numbing cream to minimize discomfort. They will then use the Morpheus8 handpiece to deliver RF energy and microneedling to the treatment area. The session typically lasts 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
After the treatment, you may experience some redness and swelling, which usually subside within a few days. Your practitioner will provide aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery and optimal results.
