Morpheus 8 treatment at Foster MD
- Posted on: Sep 15 2021
We all want to look and feel our best. With Morpheus 8 treatment, many men and women can improve the appearance of their face without the need for plastic surgeries. With today’s continued technological improvements in the field of medicine, more and more noninvasive and minimally invasive options are available to new and established patients in our practice. Dr. Wayne P. Foster of Toms River and Manasquan, NJ is excited to offer a specific treatment known as Morpheus 8.
How does Morpheus 8 treatment work?
Morpheus 8 is a skin procedure that is minimally invasive. It works by improving the skin’s production of natural elements such as hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin. In doing so, it smooths the skin, reduces soft tissue laxity, and improves volume loss. This is achieved by administering radio frequency energy alongside microneedling.
The procedure works by first applying a topical anesthetic to numb the skin while patients relax, fully awake, in the treatment chair. Then, the Morpheus 8 device, which is a handheld appliance, is used along with 24 micro-needling electrodes placed on the skin. The electrodes are used to deliver the fractional thermal energy deep within the skin’s layers to stimulate dermal remodeling. Over the course of time, patients will notice a gradual improvement in their skin’s appearance and find that they look more youthful with treatments.
What should I expect from recovery?
Because the Morpheus 8 treatment is minimally invasive and does not require incisions as plastic surgery can, it does not come with extensive downtime. Most patients may experience redness of the skin for a few days post-treatment, but this resolves on its own and is often not bothersome to individuals who have had the treatment performed.
