What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a nonsurgical, outpatient skin treatment that is performed on-site at Evolve Med Spa in Dallas, TX. It combines radiofrequency (RF) energy and tiny microneedles to treat the skin. Sessions usually take about 20 – 30 minutes when performed on the face.
How does Morpheus8 treat acne scars?
Morpheus8 is an innovative therapy that utilizes a handheld device equipped with dermal needles that simultaneously emits RF technology. The needles create micro-injuries in the skin to prompt natural tissue regeneration, and the heat-like energy encourages collagen production. As the skin heals, new dermal cells form, diminishing the appearance of harsh acne scars.
How is RF microneedling performed?
First, the skin is gently cleansed to remove makeup, oil, and dirt. Then, Dr. Shimer or one of our licensed aestheticians will apply a numbing cream to the target area to provide optimal comfort. Once you are prepped, the Morpheus8 handpiece will be applied to the skin in even passes until the entire area has been addressed. Since a numbing agent is used, most patients experience little to no discomfort.
Recovery after Morpheus8
After your Morpheus8 (RF microneedling) treatment, you can expect pin-sized scabs to form over the next few days. The scabs will eventually crust and fall off as the skin rejuvenates. You may also experience mild irritation, like redness, itching, bleeding, and peeling. These side effects are normal and are signs that the treatment is working. After about 3 – 4 weeks, the skin will look refreshed and smooth.
