Morpheus8, sounds like a futuristic action movie, kind of like the Matrix, doesn’t it? Well that’s because this device IS the future. Morpheus8 is microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) heat, that offers fractional treatment results with minimal downtime. This treatment can help with fine lines, wrinkling and acne scarring; it is a great way for the body to rebuild collagen. Morpheus8, while still a microneedling device is very different from the SkinPen. The microneedles can penetrate the skin deeper than that of the SkinPen and also offers a heat component for improved skin retraction. The combination of heat and injury maximizes the results you will get from the treatment. 

 

The downtime will consist of about 2-5 days of a red and swollen appearance however, by about day 2 you can apply makeup. If you are looking to keep downtime at its absolute minimum, applying PRP to the treatment can help to cut downtime by speeding up the recovery process. After the procedure you will want to keep the skin well moisturized, protected from the sun, and will want to be sure to add a recovery serum. Our La Chelé private label Line Free Serum and  SkinMedica Recovery Complex are both great options. 

 

Aside from the amazing minimal downtime, Morpheus8 can be used by all skin types! Due to the devices color blind technology, the fractionated treatment can treat darker tones as well with little risk of hyperpigmentation. You can expect to see results as soon as a few days after but will see more noticeable results around 4 weeks and can continue to see improvements for 3-6 months after the procedure. This is a new year and a new you… 2020 is the year of clear vision, take charge of your skin and give it the love it deserves.
