How Many Morpheus8 Treatments Will I Need?

However, for optimal results and depending on your areas of concern, you can be expected to have between 2 – 3 sessions spaced at 6 – 8 week or 3 month intervals, depending on the consultation with or advice from your Doctor.

How Long Do Morpheus8 Results Last?

Morpheus8 treatments results are permanent, but it is important to remember that the skin continues to age consistent with your lifestyle and genetics. Therefore maintenance treatments are encouraged to continue to create new collagen and elastin in order to maintain a youthful appearance.

  • Lower and upper eyelids
  • Smile lines
  • Superficial and deep wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Depressed scars
  • Vascularity

What Can I Expect During My Morpheus Treatment?

The area to be treated will be cleansed using an antibacterial wash followed by an alcohol wipe. Topical anaesthetic may be applied to the treatment area and will remain on the skin for 45 minutes before numbing of the skin will occur.
In cases where we might need to use higher
energies for deeper tissue tightening, your Doctor may decide to inject local anaesthetic into the area to give you optimal numbing and a more pleasant experience.

The Morpheus8 handpiece is used to stamp and cover the full treatment area, while stamping, a fractional radio-frequency current is passed through the handpiece. You may experience muscle twitching in the treatment which often feels like a quick rubber band snap sensation. Once the treatment is complete, we follow with the application of a calming ointment.
