As we age, changes in our skin become visible, including hyperpigmentation, skin laxity, the accumulation of minor fat pockets, dullness, and others. At AdmireMD® Plastic Surgery + Skin Clinic, we offer Morpheus8 to revitalize the skin. Morpheus8 is a minimally-invasive rejuvenating technology that dramatically renews the skin while melting small, unwanted fat pockets away.
What to expect during a Morpheus8 treatment
We will start by ensuring your comfort with local anesthesia or a numbing cream applied to the treatment area to ensure you feel comfortable during treatment. Once this has taken effect, we will pass the Morpheus8 handpiece over your skin in the target area.
As the handpiece moves across your skin, the ultra-fine needles will create tiny micro-injuries. RF energy is emitted from the device to heat the underlying tissues and further boost the triggering effect of collagen and elastin production. At the same time, the heat energy liquifies small fat pockets.
During treatment, you will feel warmth and a slight prickling sensation. Patients describe the feeling to be uncomfortable, but they do not report it being painful. Once the handpiece has been passed over the treatment area, we will apply active topical ingredients to the skin. These ingredients are more deeply absorbed and thus more effective after a Morpheus8 treatment.
