If you're considering Morpheus8 treatment, it's important to take certain steps before the procedure to ensure the best possible results. To minimize the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, it's recommended to discontinue any skin-irritating products and avoid direct sun exposure for at least 48 hours before treatment. Morpheus8 is a non-invasive procedure that combines microneedle technology with radiofrequency therapy to stimulate natural collagen production, reduce excess fat, and help rejuvenate the skin. It offers many of the same skin-tightening benefits of a facelift, though the results won't be as dramatic or long-lasting.
The cost of Morpheus8 will depend on how many areas you're treating, where you live, and the level of experience of your professional. For patients who have already undergone a facelift, Morpheus8 can be used as a maintenance capacity to reshape and tighten the skin as needed, or to address general complexion problems. Approximately one hour before treatment with Morpheus8, your doctor will apply a topical anesthetic to your face or other treatment area. Many people hear the words “microneedle treatment” and assume that Morpheus8 would be painful, but this isn't usually the case.
Patients in their 60s and 70s are still excellent candidates for Morpheus8, while some in their 40s and 50s may be better served with a surgical facelift or other therapy. I generally recommend that patients undergo about three consecutive treatments with Morpheus8 to achieve the best possible initial results. If you're scheduling Morpheus8 for an important event, such as a wedding or reunion, it's best to get it at least several months in advance. I also sometimes combine Morpheus8 with other treatments such as FaceTite, topical exosomes or platelet-rich plasma to further rejuvenate the skin and achieve a radiant, youthful glow.
