You probably heard of microneedling – a dermapen procedure that uses tiny needles to prick the skin to generate new collagen and tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin.
Morpheus8 works like a microneedling tool, but rather than prick the skin, this device also incorporates radiofrequency, which triggers collagen and elastin production at a deeper level that microneedling can’t reach. The 24 coated pins penetrate the subdermal tissue, thickening the fat and contracting connective tissue to tighten and rejuvenate the treated area.
As for the procedure, the handheld device is pressed into the area after using a topical numbing cream on the patient’s treatment area, allowing the tiny microneedles to perforate the skin. Once the pins are in place, they emit radiofrequency (RF) waves. The heat from these waves penetrates deep into the dermal skin layer, tightening the skin and fat below. The procedure – numbing and preparations included – doesn’t take more than two hours.
Morpheus8 microneedling treatment delivers uniform results for all skin types without creating thermal damage to your dermis. The innovative technology also reduces the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, a side effect of some resurfacing techniques.
