Morpheus8 is a newly developed microneedling technique from Mode Aesthetics that has taken the cosmetic industry by storm. Majority of people who have had the treatment praise it, reporting that they have not had any microneedling procedure that comes close to it.
But is Morpheus8 truly as great as it sounds? Should you try it?
Let’s explore what Morpheus8 is, and whether or not this innovative newcomer outperforms other microneedling techniques.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a microneedling technique that combines traditional microneedling and radio frequencies, which safely heat up and tighten the skin.
Microneedling itself is a technique where the skin is punctured by tiny, sterile needles to promote the production of collagen. This procedure is effective in reversing aging and giving skin a youthful appearance.
How Are Morpheus8 Treatments Performed?
Morpheus8 treatments are conducted in a dermatologist’s or plastic surgeon’s clinic under local anesthetic.
The recommended way to go through the treatments is to have the second one whenever you feel your skin feel less lifted and less rejuvenated. Preferably at the end of 3 years. During the first three procedures, you will probably need 3 to 4 sessions of treatments each spaced one month apart. However, in your treatments beyond the third procedure, you may only need 1 to 2 sessions to maintain it.
How Long Does Morpheus8 Take To Work?
You will start seeing Morpheus8 results 3-4 weeks after the final session of your first procedure.
Can Morpheus8 Results Last Longer?
Typically, Morpheus8 results can be expected to last between 1-3 years. This wide variation is mainly because everyone’s skin is unique. Therefore, individuals will react to the treatment differently.
There is the fact that, although Morpheus8 will seemingly reverse a lot of the aging process, you will still age. It is like rewinding a clock; the moment it is set back a few minutes or hours, it starts gaining time.
To make your Morpheus8 treatment last longer, consider making these lifestyle changes:
- Avoid sun exposure
- Always have some sunscreen on, even in winter and while indoors
- Avoid smoking
- Keep your skin hydrated
- Create a daily skincare routine
- Schedule intermittent skin care treatments
However, if your Morpheus8 treatment lasts less than a year, then the place you had it done needs to be questioned. Only consider a facial surgeon with a clear and traceable reputation, and who can explain the process concisely to you.
