Should You Get Microneedling or Morpheus8?

Should You Get Microneedling or Morpheus8? | Palo Alto Laser

Microneedling is arguably the most established aesthetician service. It was originally developed during the turn of the last century and played a large role in helping injured veterans recover from war injuries. At Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care, every provider is personally trained by Zuzana Likar to the highest standards because the skill of the microneedler is just as important as the procedure itself. Microneedling is a form of collagen induction therapy, creating tiny channels or controlled “trauma” in the skin that tells the body to flood the area with collagen. Collagen is the natural fountain of youth we all have, but we produce less of it as we age. Microneedling can counteract this limitation, but traditional microneedling requires ongoing treatments to sustain results. Most people opt for monthly sessions.

Morpheus8 uses radiofrequency (RF) alongside microneedling, making it like microneedling on steroids (the good kind). It is a form of microneedling that goes deeper than traditional methods so you get more collagen production. At the same time, it delivers radiofrequency energy, which is another proven method of collagen induction therapy. This means you get double the benefit. This means that you only need Morpheus8 every few months instead of monthly. Results from Morpheus8 are better than traditional microneedling results in numerous studies, and as an added bonus it’s much easier to fit into busy schedules.

Serums to Boost Results

Whether you choose traditional microneedling or Morpheus8, you want to take advantage of those temporary channels caused by the needles. You can always ask to add on a facial to a traditional microneedling session, but Morpheus8 is meant to be paired with various serums to boost the results. These are hand-selected by your provider based on your skin’s needs and your goals. It can be discussed during your complimentary consultation or right before your appointment. These accessory boosters are yet another reason why so many people are switching from microneedling to Morpheus8.

Just like with regular microneedling, you can also get Morpheus8 just about anywhere on the face or body. Collagen is produced throughout the body and a surge in production leads to skin that is tauter, smoother, more youthful, and glowing. Morpheus8 and microneedling can also help with light scarring and hyperpigmentation, including stubborn pigmentation problems like melasma. It can also be used in conjunction with various other treatments such as facials, chemical peels, and laser skin rejuvenation.

Beauty from the Inside Out

Many clients want to steer clear of more invasive treatments and prefer to turn back the clock and look their best through natural means. Collagen induction therapy is perhaps the most natural of all, depending wholly on the healing powers of your body to achieve your skin care goals. The boosters added at the end of your treatment might be an in-office-only treat or a medical-grade product you can purchase to continue using at home. Pairing in-office treatments like Morpheus8 with a quality at-home regimen is what it takes to take your skin to the next level.

Similar to traditional microneedling, Morpheus8 results are not immediate (though you might notice an initial glow right after the treatment). It takes about one month for the first of the collagen induction therapy results to start to show. Morpheus8 results will continue to improve for up to four months after the treatment (on average). Many clients opt for bi-annual treatments, which means your next session will be scheduled just in time for the holidays. Find out for yourself why celebrities are raving about Morpheus8 as a means to tackle signs of aging and revive skin to its plump, dewy youth.

Morpheus8 is a two in one treatment suitable for men and women of any skin tone and type. Everyone from their 20s to their 80s is an ideal candidate for this revolutionary treatment.
