Morpheus8 Q & A

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 by InMode® is a microneedling skin rejuvenation treatment. It works by inducing the growth of collagen, a type of protein in your skin that keeps it youthful, firm, and wrinkle-free. Your skin doesn’t produce as much collagen as you age, which leads to skin laxity, drooping, and wrinkles.

Morpheus8 stimulates collagen growth by creating tiny injuries in the skin. The growth, thickening, and contraction of collagen are all part of the healing process stimulated by Morpheus8 microneedling. In addition to the tiny injuries, Morpheus8 enhances healing by delivering gentle radiofrequency deep into the skin and tissues. 

With its combination of microneedling and radiofrequency, Morpheus8 heals damages to the skin at the surface level and below.

What are the results of Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 offers plenty of benefits for your skin’s health and firmness and is safe for all skin types. During your consultation at Self Care LA, Dr. Kothakota recommends Morpheus8 if it will get you closer to reaching your treatment goals. The procedure can minimize features of the skin such as:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • New and old scars
  • Sagging and laxity
  • Large pores
  • Stretchmarks
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Hyperhidrosis

While you might experience slight irritation after the treatment, Morpheus8 ultimately offers brighter and more even skin. You can sustain those results by using professional skin care products, avoiding sun exposure, and staying hydrated. 

Am I a good candidate for Morpheus8?

Dr. Kothakota ensures you’re a good candidate for Morpheus8 after reviewing your medical history and examining your treatment goals. If you have skin concerns that are treatable with Morpheus8, Dr. Kothakota makes sure you don’t have any skin conditions or irritation that might interfere with the treatment. 

You may be a candidate for Morpheus8 if you:

  • Are generally healthy
  • Are committed to taking care of your skin
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Have early signs of skin aging 

If Morpheus8 doesn’t align with your goals, or if you have a condition that prevents you from being a candidate, Dr. Kothakota can direct you to a more suitable alternative.
