Morpheus8 is an advanced, non-surgical skin treatment that pairs microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. So how does it work? Dr. West uses the Morpheus8 device’s fractional energy application to penetrate deep into the skin, triggering an immediate healing response and new collagen and elastin production over time for some seriously stunning results.
Morpheus8 is still getting plenty of buzz from social influencers, beauty bloggers, and skincare experts. Why does it seem to be such a game changer for skin rejuvenation? Let’s take a closer look.
Why Is Morpheus8 So Popular?
One aspect of Morpheus8 is microneedling, also referred to as ‘collagen-induction therapy.’ Microneedling, as the name suggests, involves repeatedly puncturing the skin in the treatment area with microscopic needles. Anytime most people hear the word “needle,” their blood pressure increases but there’s really no need to stress out in this case – treatment with these ultra-fine needles is very comfortable.
Microneedling encourages new collagen production as your skin naturally heals and repairs itself. You are in essence transforming the texture and tone of your skin from the inside out, producing a smoother and sleeker appearance.
But there’s nothing new about microneedling. The real reason Morpheus8 is getting rave reviews is for combining microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy. By administering RF energy immediately after your skin is “opened up” through microneedling, Morpheus8 is able to reach deeper layers of skin for a more lasting effect than having surface-level RF treatment only. The RF energy further encourages collagen and elastin production, achieving a tightening effect in the treatment area.
Which Skin Conditions Does Morpheus8 Treat?
Dr. West is able to treat a wide range of skin concerns and trouble spots with Morpheus8:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin texture issues, including dilated pores
- Acne scars and sun damage
- Facial sagging and jowls
- Body and facial scars
In fact, the versatility of this treatment is yet another reason for its popularity. So is the ease and comfort of the treatment itself. Though results are usually impressive after your first treatment, Dr. West recommends a series of at least 3 treatments spaced about a month apart for optimal results.
What Are the Benefits of Morpheus8 Microneedling Treatments?
After your series of Morpheus8 microneedling treatments with Dr. West, you can expect to see some dramatic differences in the appearance of your skin and a noticeable improvement in your skin’s glow. Increased collagen production, diminished fine lines and wrinkles, minimized acne scarring, and faded stretch marks are just a few of the many benefits of Morpheus8 microneedling treatments.
