Do you want to look younger, sleeker, and smoother? With a treatment like Morpheus8, you can turn back the hands of time to remodel and contour your face at OPAL Aesthetics in Atlanta.

About Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is a treatment that uses a device that combines radiofrequency energy and microneedling. Microneedling uses thin needles to address skin concerns and make tiny holes in the top layer of the skin. Making these holes creates damage and stimulates your skin’s healing process to produce more collagen and elastin to keep your skin firm and smooth.

Radiofrequency energy and microneedling help remodel and contour your skin. Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive treatment that delivers heat to deeper layers of your skin while creating tiny micro-injuries on the surface of your skin with microneedling. Morpheus8 uses subdermal adipose remodeling to penetrate deep into your skin and fat to make you look smoother, sleeker, and younger.

Morpheus8 is also one of the only treatments that can address skin texture, elasticity, and wrinkles occurring on the skin’s surface and at deeper layers of the skin. This is possible because the treatment stimulates the production of new collagen with controlled thermal heating. But it also tightens existing collagen fibers. The micro-channels this creates make it easier for topical products to penetrate your skin. Morpheus8 treatments typically require little downtime while allowing you to experience natural-looking results.

The Morpheus8 Treatment Process

First, you’ll have any areas that will be treated cleaned. Then, a numbing cream will be applied if desired. Next, the handpiece with the microneedling tip is adjusted depending on the depth of the treatment you’re undergoing. The microneedling tip will glide over your skin briefly several times, creating micro-injuries as it does so. You may feel a pinching sensation when this occurs. You’ll also have radiofrequency energy delivered in the same treatment session through the handpiece.

The radiofrequency energy is delivered through the handpiece into different depths of tissue of your skin to help stimulate new collagen production. This part of the Morpheus8 treatment may feel like brief warming pulses. Most patients require three microneedling tip passes and two radiofrequency energy passes per area treated in one session. Less passes are usually necessary if you’re having more sensitive regions treated. After treatment, you may notice that your skin looks pink or slightly swollen.

However, this should dissipate 1-3 days after your Morpheus8 treatment. Exfoliating over the next week should help reveal an improved texture and tone of your skin. We recommend 3-6 treatment sessions 4 to 6 weeks apart for optimal results. However, undergoing even one Morpheus8 treatment will help you see subtle skin tone and texture improvement.

If you experience discomfort following your Morpheus8 treatment at OPAL Aesthetics, you can take over-the-counter pain medication in the first 24 hours. Morpheus8 is a safe year-round treatment for all skin types. Learn more about Morpheus8 by requesting your consultation at OPAL Aesthetics in Atlanta, GA, now!
