BE YOUR OWN KIND OF BEAUTIFUL!
WHAT IS MORPHEUS8 RF MICRONEEDLING?
Whereas Microneedling is a well-established skin treatment that boosts the production of natural collagen in our bodies, Morpheus8 goes above and beyond traditional microneedling to deliver way more astounding results! What sets Morpheus8 apart from other microneedling treatments is the winning pairing of microneedling with advanced radiofrequency (RF) technology which triggers that collagen and elastin production at a deeper level that microneedling alone can’t reach in order to attain significant fractional remodeling. Morpheus8 is highly customizable applied in varying strengths to achieve a wide variety of desired results, it can sculpt and tighten the appearance of the face and body at its most powerful settings. At gentler settings, Morpheus8 can deliver significant improvements in skin including complexion, brightening, and more. Worth mentioning here is that Morpheus8 is one of the few devices that is FDA approved to remodel underlying fat.
What to expect during the application?
Approximately 45 minutes prior to your treatment a topical numbing cream is applied to the area being treated, Once the numbing has taken affect, treatment will begin with a 25 or 64 pin disposable tip, depending on the area size of the face or body. The tiny microneedles in the handheld device are pressed into these areas allowing them to prick the skin. Once the needles are in place, they emit radiofrequency (RF) waves that penetrates deep into the dermal skin layer, creating a contraction-like effect, tightening the skin and fats below, this is what causes the remodeling, restructuring, and the improvement in the appearance of what was formerly flabby to thick and healthy skin.
