What is Morpheus8?

The older you get, the less your body produces collagen, causing your skin to lose elasticity. This in turn results in sagging skin, lines, and wrinkles. Stress, sun damage, and genetic factors also play a role in changing your skin and appearance, which can cause you to feel dissatisfied or depressed when you look in the mirror.

Morpheus8 is a needling device that uses RF, or radiofrequency, to treat skin that is showing signs of aging. This nonsurgical treatment is able to stimulate the production of collagen in your body, which works to tighten skin and smooth wrinkles. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Joseph Russo, M.D., specializes in anti-aging treatments such as Morpheus8 to help you regain a more youthful appearance. Based in Boston, Dr. Russo understands the issues you’re confronting as your face changes and knows how to help to reach your cosmetic goals.

Benefits of Morpheus8

While aging is a natural process and it is normal that our faces change, minor issues such as stretch marks, acne scars, and wrinkles can become more pronounced as your skin loses its elasticity. The texture can coarsen and your contours sag, making you feel uncomfortable and helpless against your changing appearance.

By combining needling techniques with RF energy waves, Morpheus8 treatments penetrate more deeply into your skin, providing a range of positive results. This includes reducing the appearance of wrinkles, lines, sagging, jowls, acne scars, stretch marks, sun damage, and enlarged pores. Even better, Morpheus8 is a short treatment with no downtime needed. It also produces faster results than other methods and is a safe, effective way to reduce signs of aging in your face.

Morpheus8 Procedure

This treatment is considered an outpatient procedure that can take up to two hours to complete. Dr. Russo will apply a numbing cream on the targeted area before beginning. If you choose a higher setting on the device, you can request a local anesthetic for a stronger numbing effect.

Dr. Russo takes the Morpheus8 device and stamps it across your skin. As he does this, tiny needles prick your skin and send out the RF energy waves. This heats the tissue below your skin, which then stimulates collagen growth. As the skin heats, this allows Dr. Russo to mold your fat, recontouring the target area to create natural-looking results as your skin tightens after treatment.

Are You a Candidate for Morpheus8?

If you would like to undergo treatments with Morpheus8, you will need to come in for a consultation with Dr. Russo so he can review your medical history and conduct an exam to establish your eligibility. Generally speaking, the best candidates for Morpheus8 are in good health and are dissatisfied with changes in their skin, including fine lines, wrinkles, and minor scars.

Recovery After Morpheus8

Morpheus8 treatments are non-surgical and minimally invasive, so you should be able to return to your normal routine within two to three days. Because of the microneedles, there will be some mild redness and swelling in your treated areas. You may also notice shiny skin or extra tight skin for up to five days later, which is normal. You can treat these areas with moisturizer. You also need to avoid direct sunlight and physical activities such as running or swimming.

Morpheus8 Results

Your results from Morpheus8 treatments will begin to become visible within a few days, including smoother and tighter skin.

Over the next three weeks, there will be even more smoothing of your wrinkles, stretch marks, lines, or whatever issue you had treated. Your skin will continue to improve for up to 3 months after your last treatment. Collagen production will also increase, which means it might take up to 6 months for you to see the final results from your Morpheus8 treatments.

When you come in for your treatment, Dr. Russo will apply a numbing analgesic to your targeted areas so there is no discomfort during the procedure. After the analgesic fades, you may notice soreness from swelling and bruising in the treated area. You can take over-the-counter pain relievers as needed to alleviate this mild pain.

Morpheus8 costs vary according to which areas you want treated and how many sessions you would like. The most effective results generally occur after at least three treatments. In addition, Morpheus8 is normally an elective treatment, so it’s not covered by insurance providers.
