Morpheus8™ by Inmode

- The combination of two effective methods for skin rejuvenation and regeneration

What is Morpheus 8™?

 

Morpheus 8™ is a FDA approved treatment that combines 2 therapeutic approaches, namely radiofrequency (RF) and microneedling, in a highly effective way.

The collagen production in deeper layers of the skin is stimulated, which sets in motion a natural anti-aging process.

The Morpheus 8™ process is particularly effective in tightening the skin, improving the complexion and rebuilding collagen.

 

 

What happens during a Morpheus 8™ treatment?

 

With radiofrequency microneedling, the microneedles are inserted into the skin at different depths and heat pulses are emitted via the needle tips within microseconds. This triggers the skin's natural healing process and the body's own regeneration processes with the release of growth factors and stimulation of the connective tissue cells (fibroblasts), which then increasingly produce collagen and elastin fibers.

 

 

What is the advantage of treatment with Morpheus 8™ over other RF microneedling devices?

 

The Morpheus 8™ is a medical device approved by the american FDA, which has proven its safety and effectiveness in various studies. Because the heat is only released in the deeper layers of the skin via the needle tips, the pain is significantly reduced with this treatment and the downtime is less than with conventional devices. In addition, both the intensity of the released RF energy and the needle length from 1 mm to 8 mm, and thus deeper than all other devices, can be individually adapted to the skin of the patient and a wide variety of areas of the body can be treated effectively.

 

 

Which areas can be treated with the Morpheus 8™?

 

The treatment is suitable for all skin types and can be used on any area that can benefit from subdermal renewal.

 

  • face

  • neck

  • cleavage

  • hands

  • armpits (hyperhidrosis = excessive sweating)

  • body (upper arms, elbows, inner thighs, buttocks, knees etc.)

 

 

How does a treatment with the Morpheus 8™ work?

 

After thorough cleaning of the skin and local anesthesia with a cream or a small injection (on the body), the skin is disinfected and the treatment is painless. Finally, follow-up care takes place with a highly concentrated serum and a soothing cream.

 

 

When can you be socially acceptable again after Morpheus 8™ treatment?

 

After a Morpheus 8™ treatment, the skin can be a little swollen and possibly slightly reddened for about 1 to 2 days (weekend procedure). If desired, light medical make-up can be used to prevent redness. It usually takes about 7 to 10 days for complete healing.

 

 

How many treatments with the Morpheus 8™ are required?

 

Depending on your individual requirements and depending on the body region, we recommend between 2 to 4 sessions at intervals of 4 to 6 weeks.

 

 

When and for how long will the result be visible after a Morpheus 8™ microneedling?

 

An initial result of a radio frequency microneedling treatment is visible after 6 to 12 weeks, the end result can take up to 6 months. With deeper scar treatments, results can be expected after

4 to 6 months at the earliest.

The treatment result is permanent, however, due to the progressive aging of the skin, the treatment should be repeated once every 2 to 3 years.

 

 

What are the possible risks and side effects of Morpheus 8™ microneedling?

 

  • swelling and redness

  • small hematomas

  • rarely inflammation

  • rarely triggering herpes simplex

  • rarely keloid / scar growth

  • rarely pigment shift

  • rarely peeling skin / crusting

 

 

What happens during the hyperhidrosis treatment with the Morpheus 8™ - Microneedling?

 

The sweat glands are permanently destroyed by the delivered heat impulses. The armpits are injected  with a local anesthetic, which makes the treatment almost painless. For a satisfactory result, 2 to 3 treatments are required every 2 months.

 

 

What kind of follow-up care is required?

 

Patients should take good care of the treated area and protect it from direct sunlight for 6 to 8 weeks or apply at least an SPF30+. Sunscreens not only reduce your future risk of skin cancer, but also slow down the aging process and reduce wrinkling.

 

 

What does a Morpheus 8™ treatment cost?

 

A Morpheus 8™ treatment costs from 450 euros, depending on the size of the treated area.
