At Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group, aesthetics is our passion. We endeavor to help every patient achieve their aesthetic goals, including smooth, clear, glowing skin. The technology of skin care has advanced considerably in recent years, with revolutionary techniques such as InMode’s Fractora and FaceTite RF-based treatments. One of the most cutting-edge modules for the InMode system, Morpheus8, combines RF and microneedling to add a silky glow to your skin.
How does Morpheus8 work?
Morpheus8 is an FDA-approved Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device, or SARD. It works under the skin to reshape adipose tissue, which is responsible for fat storage. Though adipose tissue is present throughout the body, buildups under the facial skin are responsible for some of the hallmarks of aging, including sagging jowls and stretch marks.
The main innovation behind Morpheus8 is the combination of radiofrequency (RF) treatments with microneedling. Both techniques are designed to stimulate the production of collagen, building new skin and restoring old skin. Radio waves heat up the skin, while microneedles puncture a series of tiny holes that encourage skin to regrow stronger and healthier.
What should I expect from my Morpheus8 treatment?
Topical anesthetic is applied to your skin, which almost completely neutralizes sensation during the treatment. You should only feel a mild heating effect as the device passes over your skin. Once Morpheus8 is applied, your doctor will assess its effects on your skin. In some patients, multiple treatments are recommended, while other patients see significant results after just one treatment. The procedure takes less than an hour, and you may resume normal activities immediately.
Morpheus8 can also be combined with other InMode procedures such as Facetite and Fractora. This comprehensive combination of treatments is called EmbraceRF. Though combining procedures will increase your recovery time, the results are even more thorough.
What can Morpheus8 treat?
Most healthy adults are good candidates for Morpheus8. The combination of microneedling and RF is effective against:
- Sun damage
- Creases or lines on the face
- Jowls or facial sagging
- Stretch marks
- Acne and acne scars
It can also improve overall skin texture. RF-based treatments are effective, noninvasive, and save you the trouble of surgery. If you have had a facelift or other surgical procedure, RF treatments can help you maintain your results.
