What to Expect
During the Procedure: Morpheus8 treatments are generally well-tolerated and require minimal downtime. During the procedure:
- You will be provided with protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the radiofrequency energy.
- A topical numbing cream may be applied to ensure a pain-free experience.
- The Morpheus8 device, which combines microneedling and radiofrequency, will be used by your practitioner to target specific areas of concern.
- The treatment duration depends on the size of the area being treated, but expect it to last between 30 minutes to an hour.
Post-Treatment Care: After your Morpheus8 session, your practitioner will guide you on how to care for your skin and maximize the results. Some general aftercare instructions may include:
- Apply a soothing ointment recommended by your practitioner to the treated area.
- Protect your skin from the sun by wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF of 30 or higher.
- Avoid direct sun exposure, saunas, swimming pools, and intense workouts for a few days following the treatment.
- Do not pick at or scratch any scabs that may form, as it could lead to scarring.
