What Is Fractional Microneedling (Morpheus8)?

at Omniya Clinic in London

Morpheus8 is the name of the device that is used in this treatment. It combines radiofrequency technology and microneedling for fractional resurfacing, which will stimulate the production of collagen. The device will target your skin’s deeper layers, and so the building blocks will reorganise themselves in an anti-aging process that is natural. The dermis will experience little to no damage as a consequence, and the result is an effect that is extremely uniform.

The device itself has been revolutionary because it is the first and only full-body fractional technology for SARDS, which is subdermal adipose remodelling. There are a number of key benefits that are associated with this.

What is fractionated energy?

One term you will often hear referred to when it comes to Morpheus8 is fractionated RF energy. This is a method that has been scientifically proven to reduce wrinkles and rebuild fat and collagen. This is why it is such a good choice. It is a treatment that is minimally invasive, utilising a mix of micro pins for renewing the skin’s deeper layers with virtually no patient downtime.

But, what is RF energy – and how does it work on the skin? Morpheus8 heats the skin’s deep layers to revitalise collagen in a way that is controlled. The result of this is that your skin’s texture and complexion is going to improve, resulting in an appearance that is more youthful and radiant.

Why choose the Morpheus8 treatment?

Minimal downtime

One of the most compelling reasons for going for this form of treatment is because there is minimal downtime. Most people will return to work the day after they have had the treatment.

Less risk of melasma or hyperpigmentation

This is a treatment that is safe to perform on skin tones that are darker, as there is a very low risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). This is different when compared with other procedures like lasers that have a higher risk of PIH.

Correct overall skin tone, eliminate dark spots, and correct sun damage

This device will deliver energy to the skin’s damaged superficial layers. This helps in terms of diminishing the skin’s hyperpigmented areas, for example, areas that show signs of sun damage or ageing. It can also revitalise the complexion of your skin, as well as decreasing pore size, and improving your skin’s texture, skin tone, and radiance.

Improves uneven stretch marks, scars, and texture

The microneedles deliver energy that penetrates to the dermis at a depth that is controlled per the specialist carrying out the treatment, ensuring personalised treatment. This aids in collagen production being stimulated and resurfacing to enhance the appearance of stretch marks and scars by retexturing the skin.

Increases firmness of tissue in both the body and face

In a controlled and safe manner, radiofrequency energy will heat the skin’s deep layers. This, in turn, results in the stimulation of the production of collagen. This leads to improved elasticity and firmness of the skin. It also stimulates collagen production and elastin over the next few months after your procedure.

Are you suitable for Morpheus8?

One of the great things about the colour blind technology that is part of Morpheus8 is that it can be used on all types of skin. This is because of the unique properties the device has. This means that you can be treated with Morpheus8 if you have a darker skin tone and you do not have to worry about the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is a concern with a lot of the other treatments that are out there at the moment. You are also going to be able to use this treatment with other treatments as well. Nevertheless, as mentioned, this is something that is going to be discussed with you in full during your first appointment.

How many treatments will be needed?

The number of treatments you should have is something that your doctor will determine after the consultation. In most cases, people will need between one and three sessions, depending on their skin condition. These treatments should be between four and six weeks apart. However, all of this will be discussed during your consultation, as it’s impossible to give you an accurate estimation without assessing your skin.

Who is this treatment not suitable for?

While one of the great things about Morpheus8 is the fact that it is suitable for a wide range of people, there are still some individuals that should not have this treatment, including anyone who/with:

  • Is pregnant.
  • Has had Botox within the last two weeks.
  • Had superficial injections of biological fillers within the past six months.
  • An active condition in the treatment area. This includes a rash, eczema, psoriasis, and sores. You should also not have the treatment is the area has recently been tanned.
  • A history of diseases that are stimulated by heat, for example, recurrent Herpes Simplex in the treatment area.
  • Permanent implant in the treatment area, for example, metal screws or plates, an injected chemical substance, or silicone implants.
  • Internal defibrillator, pacemaker, or any sort of electronic implant, for example, a glucose monitor.

The Morpheus8 procedure

Before you have the treatment, your doctor is going to take a look at your medical history. This is to ensure that you are the right candidate for the treatment. He or she will then take a look at the areas that you want to be treated, and you will be told about the procedure, as well as possible complications, how to avoid them, and aftercare. This is also the perfect opportunity for you to ask any sort of questions that you may have at this moment.

It will usually only take around 30 minutes. However, this does depend on the area that is being treated. The procedure is safe and simple. There will be minimal downtime and minimal discomfort for the patient. A local anaesthetic injection and numbing cream are typically applied to the treatment area for your comfort. The doctor is then going to apply the Morpheus8 device, in one to three passes on the skin. The applicator has 24 coated pins, which will penetrate into the tissue’s subdermal layer, the fat is coagulated and the connective tissue and fat will contract. This corrects and tightens any wrinkles and lines in the area.

Specific aftercare advice will be provided to you once the treatment is finished. Nevertheless, it is recommended that you do not apply anything to the treated area or even touch the treated area for 12 hours once your treatment has passed. This is to prevent an infection from happening.

Post-procedure care for Morpheus8 treatment

When you have this treatment, it is not going to cause much disruption in terms of your day-to-day life. There are a few steps you can take, though, to make sure that your skin recovers as well as possible. For example, you should avoid direct sun exposure and moisturise the treatment area. It is also advisable that you use an effective, broad-spectrum sunscreen on a daily basis. Sunscreen is important for a number of different reasons. It will help to lower your future risk of skin cancer while also slowing down the aging process and reducing wrinkles
