From Greek mythology to sci-fi cinema, Morpheus is a name associated with dreams and illusion. In the world of skin care breakthroughs, Morpheus8 is a high-tech device that uses targeted radiofrequency energy to reimagine the tone and texture of your skin.
It can achieve remarkable results by coupling microneedling with radiofrequency energy. The “micro injuries” from hundreds of tiny pin-pricks trigger a natural healing response that revitalizes your skin with a cascade of collagen and elastin. Skilled Louisville plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Maguire is excited to offer this new option to patients seeking an effective solution for deep facial lines, sun damage, discoloration, scarring, poor texture, sagging skin, and more.
Infused With Energy
Morpheus8 weds two proven technologies: microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy that reaches deep into tissue with RF-generated heat. The small, thin needles that are used to penetrate the skin also transmit RF energy below the skin’s surface. This “disrupts” fat cells and loose skin with a two-pronged incursion of heat and rapid-fire micro-punctures. In defense, your body marshals its revitalizing proteins, collagen and elastin. The result is that folds and lines disappear under firmer, more flexible skin, as your complexion reclaims a youthful glow. This effect is often referred to as “remodeling and resurfacing.”
Morpheus8 requires at least three sessions, scheduled four to six weeks apart. Each session lasts 15 minutes to an hour. The procedure begins with a numbing cream applied to the target area. This is usually sufficient to manage any discomfort, but other anesthetic options are available for patients who are apprehensive or for treatments that involve deeper punctures or a higher RF energy setting.
This minimally-invasive option is highly effective for a range of surface and dermal issues, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, sun spots and stretch marks. Its primary benefit is to improve the texture and tone of the skin, but it can also be used for moderate shrinkage of small pockets of fat.
Other advantages of Morpheus8 include its suitability for all skin colors and types, and the fact that your doctor can adjust the depth at which the RF energy is applied, allowing precise targeting of specific dermal layers.
