What Makes Radiofrequency Microneedling Different

As the name suggests, radiofrequency microneedling uses both tiny needles and radiofrequency waves to rejuvenate the skin. Like standard microneedling, the procedure is a form of controlled skin injury, in which the damage spurs collagen and elastin production. Benefits include the reduction of acne scars and wrinkles.

In radiofrequency microneedling, the needle releases radiofrequency into the channels to cause additional damage and, thus, amplify the effects of standard microneedling. As a result, skin that grows back is both smoother and thicker, targeting:

  • Acne scars
  • Cellulite
  • Fine lines
  • Hyperhidrosis
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Large pores
  • Loose, sagging skin
  • Scars from injury or surgery
  • Stretch marks

Benefits of Morpheus Fractional Treatment

As mentioned earlier, Morpheus fractional treatment (also known as Morpheus8) can deliver the deepest fractional treatments available on the market. As a result, it can penetrate subdermal tissue up to 8mm (including a 1mm thermal profile). It is also suitable for both smaller treatment areas (with Morpheus8) and larger, deeper tissue treatments (with Morpheus8 Body). This is due to the dual handpieces in use during the treatment.

Morpheus fractional treatment also utilizes four fractional tips with various microneedle configurations: Prime 12 pi, Resurfacing 24 pin, Morpheus8 24 pin, and Body 40 pin. Each delivers clinically proven radiofrequency energy to different treatment depths ranging from 0.5mm to 7mm. Furthermore, thanks to Burst mode radiofrequency technology, Morpheus8 Body can target tissue at three consecutive levels with only milliseconds in between. As such, clients see significantly reduced treatment times and skin injuries with increased treatment uniformity. This also makes it possible for us to customize full-body fractional procedures. Best of all, it is safe on all skin types, ranging from I to VI — with minimal risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).

Candidacy for Morpheus Fractional Treatment

Like most forms of radiofrequency microneedling, Morpheus fractional treatment is generally considered a safe procedure. Still, it is not appropriate for everyone. Ideal candidates are in good general health, have realistic expectations, and show early signs of aging.

Unsuitable candidates for the procedure include those who are currently using or have recently used Accutane, are receiving chemotherapy or radiation therapy, are pregnant, or taking anticoagulants. In addition, those with a history of keloids, hypertrophic scarring, or poor wound healing are also not well-suited to the procedure. Finally, those with an active cold sore breakout, skin infection, or moderate to severe skin disease (like psoriasis) would do well to avoid Morpheus fractional treatment.

What Morpheus Fractional Treatment Is Like

The initial consultation will center around determining the client's candidacy for the procedure. To do so, we will assess the client's medical history, current condition, and expectations. We will also take several photographs of the treatment area to determine the best technique for the client's unique needs and provide the client with detailed instructions on how to best prepare for the procedure. For example, those with active acne breakouts may be asked to take oral antibiotics, while those with a history of cold sores may need to take oral antiviral medication.

The treatment itself is relatively quick and simple:

  1. We sterilize the skin with alcohol to prevent infection.
  2. We anesthetize the client to minimize any potential discomfort. We will then use the Morpheus8 or Morpheus8 Body to make micro-tears into the skin and release radiofrequency waves into the wounds.
  3. We will apply a growth solution to the skin to promote cell regeneration.

We will also smooth a soothing solution over the skin to further minimize discomfort. The exact duration of the procedure varies depending on what is being treated.

Frequently Asked Questions

What areas can Morpheus fractional treatment treat?

Morpheus fractional treatment can target any part of the body in need of subdermal renewal. However, it is most commonly used to treat the lower face and neck. Clients also frequently turn to Morpheus fractional treatment to reduce the appearance of acne, wrinkles, stretch marks, surgical scarring, and more.

How quickly does Morpheus fractional treatment work?

It depends on the treatment regimen being followed. However, you can typically expect to see results in one to three sessions, with most patients having up to three sessions. We recommend waiting a month in between treatments.

How should I take care of my skin after Morpheus fractional treatment?

We will give you detailed aftercare instructions after the procedure. However, it is standard practice to use ice packs to control any swelling and discomfort. Be sure to wear SPF for several weeks after the treatment, as the skin will be extra photosensitive during this time. Furthermore, use a gentle cleanser after the treatment and use any prescribed antibiotic creams or emollients as directed. Finally, forego makeup until 24 hours have passed, at which point you can return to your regular skincare and makeup routine.

How often can I have Morpheus fractional treatment?

Since it takes 28 days to produce new collagen, you can get a Morpheus fractional treatment once a month. Though your skin will continue to regenerate itself for three months, you can compound the results by stacking treatments as close as one month apart.

How long is the downtime for Morpheus fractional treatment?

As a form of radiofrequency microneedling, Morpheus fractional treatment is essentially a kind of controlled skin injury. Consequently, you can expect to see some redness, swelling, and potentially bruising for the next three to five days after treatment. However, skin typically returns to looking normal after five to seven days.

How long does it take to see results from Morpheus fractional treatment?

You may see visible improvements in your skin's texture and overall quality immediately after treatment. Still, it will take two to three weeks for optimal results to appear. After that, you can expect the results to increase for up to three full months.
