Patients across the world have been looking for safe, minimally-invasive treatments to achieve a younger appearance. Today we’re talking about the newest technique on the market available for patients who want to eliminate unwanted pockets of fat and have smoother, more attractive skin: Morpheus8.

Since it received its FDA approval in 2018, Morpheus8 became one of the most renowned treatments for superior skin tightening, lifting, and contouring by restoring natural collagen and elastin to the skin. A growing number of patients are discovering the advantages of Morpheus8, which is why today we’re answering your nine most important questions about this renowned procedure! 

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is the first subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) that uses radiofrequency (RF) micro-needling to stimulate collagen production in the deep layers of the dermis. Morpheus8 penetrates deeper into the skin than any other micro-needling device, directing its energy toward the adipose fat known for causing skin imperfections. RF energy stimulates collagen and elastin production to remodel your face and body, reorganizing them in a naturally anti-aging procedure. The results are: reduced fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture, tightened skin, and an attractive look to boost your confidence.

The plastic surgeon community recommends Morpheus8 as an alternative to more invasive procedures, such as facelifts. Dr. Vinyard’s knowledge and experience will provide the care that you need for a safe and pleasant experience. If you’re considering Morpheus8 as a solution for your skin imperfections, here are the answers to the nine most important questions about this procedure:

Reverse the early signs of skin aging!

#1: Is it a painful procedure?

Morpheus8 is considered a tolerable procedure concerning pain levels. It employs very sharp and fine needles that puncture your skin. The patient will feel a slight prickling sensation followed by a warm sensation as the needles pass over their skin. During the procedure, the plastic surgeon treats the area with numbing creams and other numbing solutions to ensure a pleasant experience.

#2: How many treatments do I need?

Here at the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery, we offer our patients a free consultation to determine how many treatment sessions are necessary to achieve their personal optimal results. Dr. Vinyard will assess your medical history and consider factors such as the severity of laxity, skin quality, the patient’s goals, and their desired outcome. For optimal results, we typically recommend a series of up to three sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart.

#3: Can anyone undergo this procedure?

Morpheus8 is one of the best procedures for patients who want to reduce signs of aging but are not ready to undergo more invasive treatments, such as a facelift. Patients who are in good health and follow a healthy lifestyle are ideal candidates for this procedure.

Morpheus8 uses color-blind technology, making this procedure useful for all skin types. Plastic surgeons can now treat patients with darker skin tones without the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, a common condition with other skin resurfacing methods.

#4: Is Morpheus8 a safe procedure?

Plastic surgeons consider Morpheus8 a safe procedure that employs integrated safeguards such as real-time skin and fat temperature measurements and automatic power cut-off if the tissue receives too much energy during the treatment, preventing skin burns and tissue damage.

#5: How long does recovery time last?

Outpatient procedures allow patients to return to their normal daily activities following the procedure. Patients typically experience mild bruising,  swelling, or reddened skin that they can treat using ice packs. These side-effects generally disappear the next day. Patients should avoid exposing the treated area to direct sunlight for a few hours following the procedure.

#6: Can Morpheus8 treat different body areas?

Many of the subdermal treatments available only address a specific body area, such as the lower face, or the neck. Morpheus8 comes with an additional advantage: plastic surgeons can use it to treat aging symptoms covering your entire body, and not just specific areas. Body areas which have wrinkles, discoloration, or acne scarring are all suitable for treatment.

#7: How quickly will I see results?

Patients will notice visible improvements within a few days following the procedure, but more noticeable results will gradually appear as the collagen and elastin production processes take place. Improvements will continue for up to three months after the treatment.

Make your face look more youthfully plump & naturally tighter.

#8: Can Morpheus8 be combined with other forms of treatment?

Morpheus8 is commonly combined with other non-surgical RF forms of treatment, such as FACEtiteTM, FEMtiteTM, or BODYtiteTM, to achieve the best results. Patients who are not ready to undergo surgical facelift procedures combine these forms of treatment for anti-aging, skin tightening results. Morpheus8 can be undergone in the same treatment session or a few days after other treatments.

#9: Should I choose a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon for this procedure?

Morpheus8 is a simple, outpatient procedure that provides stunning results. Here at VIPS, we pride ourselves on offering the latest, evidence-based tools to help men and women love their skin and regain their confidence. Under the expert leadership of Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Vinyard, our medical team is ready to welcome you for a free consultation at our office in Port St. Lucie, FL.
