Are There Any Side Effects?

Like all treatments, Morpheus8 does have side effects. Immediately after the treatment you will experience redness, swelling and small marks or bruising to the area treated. We recommend that you refrain from touching your skin to prevent infection.  In the days following treatment, you may experience areas of the skin that feel tight and appear shiny. Peeling or flaking from the skin is also common.  Most patients can return to their usual activities within 1-2 days post-treatment although care must be taken to protect the area/s treated from sun exposure by using sun protection daily.  
Our expert practitioner is highly qualified in carrying out Morpheus8 treatments and will discuss side effects in detail during your consultation, so you are able to make an informed decision about treatment.
Skin that is properly cared for and protected through the healing process will benefit the most from the Morpheus8 procedure.  You will be provided with Pre and Post Care Instructions prior to your first treatment.

When will I see results from Morpheus8?

Visible results can begin to be seen 1-2 weeks after your first treatment. The best results are seen after 3 weeks as this is when the production of new collagen and elastin will start to take effect. Results can last up to 3-6 months following your last treatment.

How Many Treatments Will I need?

The number of treatments needed depends on your individual needs. However, most patients require between 3 treatments spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart for best results. The number of treatment sessions required will be dependent on your age, skin type, and desired outcome. During your consultation, our expert skin practitioner will be able to provide a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve the results. A maintenance treatment may be recommended to maintain your results.

How Long Does it Take?

Each session takes about thirty to forty-five minutes to complete.  You may be asked to come in an hour before your appointment to allow time for a topical numbing cream to be applied. You may notice immediate improvement following each treatment, but it typically takes four weeks before you see long-term benefits.

Although discomfort may be felt at times, the treatment is certainly bearable, and our expert practitioner will help to ensure that you are feeling as comfortable as possible throughout the treatment.

What Can I Expect During

A Morpheus8 Body Treatment?

Morpheus8 Body treatments take between 30-60 minutes, depending on the size and number of your desired treatment areas. Morpheus8 Body treatments are not generally considered painful, but begin with an anesthetic cream to ensure your complete comfort.

Morpheus8 Body treatments are quite versatile because there are different microneedle configurations: the Prime 12 pin, the Resurfacing 24 pin, the Morpheus8 24 pin, and the Body 40 pin. Each of these configurations has its own depth control to deliver the RF energy at the precise depth required to correct a variety of cosmetic concerns.

Once the treatment begins, the Morpheus8 Body handpiece is passed over the skin in the targeted treatment area, where it creates micro-injuries and applies heat to the underlying tissues with radiofrequency.

For the most ideal results, we recommend 2-3 sessions of Morpheus8 Body, which are performed 4-6 weeks apart.
