Are You a Candidate for Morpheus8™? Top Signs That You Might Need the Treatment

Morpheus8™ has gained a lot of popularity over the past few years due to its ability to combine multiple technologies. The fusion treatment allows for a targeted approach and long-term benefits that can rejuvenate your skin. 

At Park Avenue Medical Spa, we are proud to offer Morpheus8™ to help you achieve significant results for normal aging-related concerns. Find out more about this procedure to see if it’s a good fit for your needs.

What Is Morpheus8™?

Morpheus8™ is a cutting-edge minimally-to-non-invasive technology that combines microneedling and radiofrequency in one session. Relying on very fine needles to create microchannels in your skin, the procedure triggers your body’s healing system, leading to new collagen production

Once the needles create the path in your skin, the tool delivers radiofrequency energy. This allows the concentrated light to penetrate the skin deeper, adding even more to collagen production. This treatment is a good option for patients in their 40s and beyond who have noticed significant aging and sun damage to their skin. 

Top Signs That You Might Need the Treatment

Although everyone’s skin and body history is different, most women and men who can benefit from the Morpheus8™ treatment will likely see these signs: 

1. You Have Sagging Skin

Age can cause the skin to lose its laxity, leading to symptoms like jowls, sagging cheeks, and even less firm areas on the arms and belly skin. Morpheus8™ can be used on different body areas, using RF energy and microneedling to tighten sagging skin. 

2. You Have Uneven Skin Texture

Irregularities in the skin texture, like enlarged pores and acne scars, occur as a result of collagen loss. When Morpheus8™ is used on the target area, the renewed collagen will push the pore walls together and raise any unsightly pits in the skin. This process helps to provide a smoother complexion.

3. You Developed Stretch Marks

Around 50 to 90 percent of women develop stretch marks during pregnancy and after weight gain. These stretch marks appeared because the skin did not have time to produce enough collagen and elastin during that crucial time, causing tears to occur in the skin. The Morpheus8™ treatment can restart that healing process, triggering the production of enough collagen and elastin to reduce the mark’s visibility. 

4. You Have Sun Damage

Sun exposure can lead to various signs like wrinkles and fine lines, as well as excess pigmentation and other lesions on the skin. The RF energy can break the pigment’s bond from the skin, and the microneedling portion of the treatment starts a new healing process, which helps reduce imperfections caused by UV rays. 

5. Wrinkles and Fine Lines

Wrinkles and fine Lines are some of the main reasons people opt for the Morpheus8™ treatment. As the radiofrequency is delivered through the needles after the channels are created, the treatment can start the healing deeper in the dermis. This makes it suitable for individuals with moderate to severe wrinkles.

Who Should Not Get Morpheus8™?

Morpheus8™ can be offered to many patients as long as they have relatively healthy skin and are in good health. Non-smokers are generally the best candidates, as smoking messes with the immune system and delays the healing process. Smokers are only good candidates if they stop in the weeks before getting the treatment. 

You should not get the treatment if you have an active infection in the treated area. For instance, if you have a rash or an active acne breakout that is more than just one pimple, you should wait until it clears. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should also avoid the procedure. While it was not proven that it wasn’t unsafe for the baby, there’s limited proof that it’s safe. A thorough consultation with Dr. Tchelebi will determine whether you are a candidate for Morpheus8™.
