Morpheus8 is a non-surgical skin remodelling treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production, resulting in tighter and smoother skin. This works by heating the skin and activating fibroblast cells – which turn into collagen when they heal – to encourage new collagen formation.
These benefits include significantly improved elasticity and firmness of your skin, which helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Morpheus8 can be used on most areas of the face, including the eyes, forehead, cheeks and neck area.
Morpheus8 is a non-invasive, non-surgical skin remodelling procedure that uses radio frequency technology to target fat cells in the skin.
The device heats the area to destroy fat cells and stimulate collagen production. The idea behind the treatment is that it can help you lose weight without dieting or exercising.
The most common side effects are redness, swelling, itchiness and bruising.
These are all temporary and will go away within a few days. You can minimise side effects by following the 3-step process of prepping, protecting and healing:
The most important thing you can do to minimise the side effects of Morpheus8 is to prepare before your treatment. This means sticking to a healthy lifestyle as much as possible and ensuring that your skin is in good condition. If you are not in shape, it's best to exercise and eat well for a few weeks before your procedure is done.
If you want to avoid the redness, swelling and bruising associated with this treatment, then we recommend protecting yourself with sunscreen on the days leading up to getting it done. You should also wear high-factor SPF 30+ daily while recovering from your procedure.
The third step towards reducing any potential side effects from this treatment is healing correctly afterwards. After each session of Morpheus8 therapy, we advise patients to have at least three days off from work or school. Hence, their body has time to recover fully between sessions - six weeks would be ideal for most people, but if it's not possible, take fewer days off instead!
You can do things to minimise the chances of developing side effects. This includes:
Morpheus8 is a non-surgical skin remodelling procedure that can treat many areas of the body. The pain, swelling and redness associated with Morpheus8 are mild, although these side effects may last up to two weeks after the procedure.
Morpheus8 causes mild swelling, tenderness and redness in the treated area; however, this typically subsides within one or two days following treatment.
The effects of Morpheus8 can be used anywhere on the body. It's best to apply it after you shower so your skin is clean and dry. You may use a moisturiser before applying it if you like. The effects of Morpheus8 will last for about 5 hours but can be reapplied at any time if needed.
The following areas are good candidates for treatment:
The first step is to visit your skin care professional and have a consultation. You will need to discuss your skin goals, concerns, and expectations. Your skin care professional will assess your skin condition and recommend the proper treatment. Your skin care professional should be able to answer all of your questions and concerns.
You will then be able to decide whether Morpheus8 is the right option for you.
Your dermatologist performs the procedure in an office setting. It takes 30-60 minutes, depending on how many areas are treated. You’ll receive local anaesthesia to minimise discomfort or pain before the procedure begins.
Morpheus8 is a practical, non-surgical skin remodelling procedure with minimal side effects. This treatment's most commonly reported side effect is bruising on the treated area. This can be easily covered with makeup and usually subsides within a few days. It is essential to follow all post-procedure instructions to ensure you are adequately healed and can enjoy your new appearance for years to come!
