In this article the skin experts at SpaMedicaGR in Grand Rapids answer patients’ questions about the innovative Morpheus 8 radiofrequency microneedling treatment.
How does Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling work?
Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling uses top-of-the-line technology to combine traditional microneedling with radiofrequency energy into a single procedure.
Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling is performed by inserting a network of tiny pins deep beneath the skin, thus creating a series of invisible, virtually painless “wounds” that trigger the body’s natural healing process. In doing so, the deep layers of the skin are renewed and replenished, resulting in a diminished appearance of wrinkles and plumper, smoother skin.
These microneedles also radiate RF energy deep into the layers of the skin. This further stimulates the production of collagen to produce fuller, tighter, more youthful skin for patients.
Why is Morpheus8 microneedling called a “non-surgical facelift?”
The nickname “non-surgical facelift” is sometimes applied to Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling because of the procedure’s ability to approximate the benefits of a facelift – without requiring the patient to undergo surgery. The Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling procedure is able to tighten, contour, tone, and lift the facial area without having to go “under the knife”.
In addition to its superior facial skin tightening properties, Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling can also be used to tighten and tone the neck and jawline, effectively contouring the area to reduce the appearance of “jowls.”
Is there downtime following Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling?
Grand Rapids, MI-area Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling patients are not subject to any downtime after their procedure. Patients will, however, be advised to avoid direct sunlight following RF microneedling, and will be instructed as to which after-care moisturizers or skin care products should be applied to the treatment area.
In the days following Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling treatment, it is perfectly normal for some patients to observe tiny, almost microscopic, “micro-lesions” developing in the treatment area. Patients may also may notice slight redness to the treatment area, but this will subside in a couple days to a week. Once 1 to 2 days have passed, it is generally completely safe to apply makeup to the treatment area to conceal any redness.
In order to get the most out of their results, we tell our Grand Rapids microneedling patients that they should incorporate applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen to their daily routine. In addition to slowing the aging process and reducing wrinkles, doing so will help reduce risk of skin cancer in the future.
Can radiofrequency microneedling be used on all skin types?
Regardless of skin type or skin tone, Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling technology is an effective way to rejuvenate one’s appearance. Unlike many other skin resurfacing and rejuvenating procedures, RF microneedling is safe for even darker skin tones.
