Morpheus8 is a fractional RF microneedling treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, tissues of the face and body can be remodelled to reveal a more radiant youthful appearance. Benefits include:
Non-invasive procedure suitable for all skin types/tones
Targets the deeper layers of the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and acne.
The only hybrid Radiofrequency micro-needling technology on the market
Stimulates the production of collagen
Reduces the appearance of dark spots, fine lines & wrinkles
No hyperpigmentation or inflammation after-effects
Can be applied on any part of the body.
This treatment can be used on any areas that can benefit from resurfacing and subdermal renewal. The most commonly treated areas include:
Face & Neck
Abdomen & "Mummy Tummies"
- Thighs, Legs & Knees
Downtime 1-7 days
Treatment Time 45 - 60 minutes
WHAT TO EXPECT
A one-on-one consultation is scheduled with our dermal aesthetician to discuss your areas of concern as well as your relevant medical history. We then work together to create a customised treatment plan to help you achieve your skin goals. Often, this procedure can be combined with other in clinic skin treatments to obtain optimal results.
To allow for a higher degree of application and depending on the area being treated, numbing cream is advisable, although some discomfort may still be experienced. Using an ice pack will also assist in providing relief during and after the procedure.
A moisturiser will be applied in clinic immediately after the procedure as well as sunscreen for unexpected sun exposure during the day.
One week prior to treatment, you will need to avoid intentional sun tanning and wear sunscreen on the area to be treated whilst outdoors.
You should discontinue any irritant topical agents for 2-3 days prior to treatment such as AHA, BHA, Retinol.
We also recommend that you avoid anticoagulants such as aspirin throughout the treatment regimen if medical condition permits and pertinent to physician approval. Anticoagulants/ Fish oil increase the possibility of bruising.
HOW IT WORKS
Radiofrequency (RF) energy is a scientifically proven method to remodel and rebuild collagen. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew the deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime.
The handpieces have pins that vary from 0.5mm to as far as 4mm reach under the skin surface to deliver the energy precisely and accurately at the depth where it is most effective and in the dose that will deliver the best results possible. We can thus influence and improve all levels from the subdermal fat layers where fat removal and tightening is desired, the subdermal layers for 3-dimensional contraction and lifting/tightening, the dermis itself for skin firming and additional collagen production, and in the superficial dermis as a radiofrequency fractional resurfacing for improving skin tone, sun damage and fine lines.
Micro-needling alone induces repair processes with additional collagen production but it is the addition of the RF that produces the very significant tightening and contraction of the tissues at all levels. Results are greatly enhanced with the RF.
After the treatment you will notice tissue tightening and improved skin texture. Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically after three weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months from the course of your treatment for final results to appear. It can be expected that results will last for up to a year, however with regular treatment and maintenance these results can be expected to last longer.
Depending upon assessment, you will usually require between 1 - 3 sessions for optimum results.

POST TREATMENT CARE
Avoid heat inducing activities for 24-48 hours post treatment including hot baths, massages, sun and UV exposure, scratching, excessive sweating etc.
Apply a bland or clinic recommended moisturiser on the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. We also recommended that you use a good, broad-spectrum sunscreen every day if the area is exposed to direct sunlight.
Makeup can be applied 1-2 days after treatment
FOLLOW UP STEPS
To achieve the best results, an initial course of up to 3 treatments are recommended. Due to the aging process occurring, we do recommend on-going once or twice a year maintenance.
Your next treatment is due within 3 to 6 weeks apart. One is rarely enough on it’s own but will tend to show some improvement. Every patient’s condition and treatment needs vary.
