Radiofrequency (RF) technology and microneedling come together in Morpheus8 technology, a revolutionary treatment for collagen induction therapy that takes your results to the next level. Now available at Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care, Morpheus8 provides visible results in just a few days after the treatment, but like with all collagen induction therapies those results will continue to improve for weeks after your session. Only the multi-layered approach of Morpheus8 can target different skin and tissue levels to give you results that are more radiant than ever—all from the inside out.
As we age, our bodies synthesize less collagen (the protein that naturally helps our skin look youthful and plump). However, we can bring back that collagen production with a myriad of treatments. There are many options available, but Morpheus8 combines two of the most popular and effective approaches—RF and microneedling—in one treatment.
How to Use Morheus8
Morpheus8 can be used just about anywhere on the body where you want to address common skin concerns like fine to moderate lines, wrinkles, and laxity, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and poor skin tone and texture. Unlike “just” one collagen induction treatment, Morpheus8 has the ability to go beyond treating mild signs of aging. Many clients opt for Morpheus8 on the face and neck, abdomen, buttocks, legs, and thighs. You can even use this treatment on the delicate skin around the eyes and lips, which isn’t always possible with other anti-aging treatments.
Just like other collagen induction therapies, you’re going to need a series of sessions to get the best results. On average, most clients benefit from 3 or 4 sessions, each spaced 4 weeks apart. Significant results will begin to appear around 6 weeks after the first treatment, but bear in mind that creating collagen takes time. Maintenance sessions every few weeks after your initial series can help you keep and sustain results. Although your body can produce a lot of collagen, it does need help at a certain point to keep this production flowing.
Why These Technologies?
RF and microneedling have long been favored means of kick-starting collagen production. Radiofrequency has undergone numerous scientific tests to show its capacity to remodel and rebuild collagen. Microneedling has been used for over 100 years, initially designed (or, rather, discovered) as a means of helping patients with severe scarring, particularly veterans. Of course, both RF and microneedling have come a long way since their initial use years ago.
Morpheus8 uses a matrix comprised of tiny pins, all capable of getting to the deeper skin layers where collagen is actually produced. Only professionals have access to these medical-grade devices, and it’s important to avoid DIY microneedling (these devices feature needles that are not designed for genuine microneedling, rendering them either useless or dangerous).
Why Choose Morpheus8
The results from Morpheus8 treatments can be dramatic, and yet the procedure itself is so gentle that no downtime is required. Your skin may look a bit pink right after your treatment, but clients immediately get back to their day. You can also apply topicals and makeup to the skin right after the treatment, and if you really want the best results you can combine Morpheus8 with other treatments.
For example, starting your treatment with dermaplaning will clear debris from the skin and remove peach fuzz. After a Morpheus8 treatment, an in-office facial will immerse the skin in medical-grade topicals hand-selected for you—and with dermaplaning and Morpheus8 complete, these topicals can best reach the deeper layers of skin. If you’re uncertain which regimen is best for you, we will work with you to develop a session as unique as you (and your skin) are.
