Morpheus8™ in Dallas, TX
As we age, our skin begins to lose the elasticity it once had. In addition, adipose (fat) tissue can develop in areas that never existed before. All of these factors contribute to the appearance of sagging skin, poor skin texture, and unwanted wrinkles, even though you feel young and energetic.
Morpheus8™ is an advanced microneedling device that incorporates radiofrequency energy to stimulate the production of collagen, tighten skin, diminish unwanted fat pockets, and improve skin tone and texture.
Dr. Morales is a highly respected, board-certified plastic surgeon dedicated to offering the latest skin rejuvenation techniques in Dallas, Texas. Schedule your Morpheus8™ consultation with Dr. Morales by calling our office at (214) 827-8407.
Are You a Candidate for Morpheus8™?
Morpheus8™ is indicated for mild to moderate signs of aging, such as fine lines, lax skin, and skin texture concerns. For more serious skin concerns, facelift surgery may be warranted. Schedule a consultation with one of our skilled Morpheus8™ providers today to discuss your options and determine the appropriate treatment for you.
You may be the ideal candidate for Morpheus8™ if you:
- Have loose, sagging skin on the face, neck, or chest that you would like to improve
- Have uneven skin texture due to sun damage or the aging process
- Have acne or other minor facial scarrings
- Want to reduce your stretch marks
- Are seeking a “bridge procedure” that rejuvenates without the need for a facelift, neck lift, or other surgical procedure
- Have realistic expectations of your results
How Is Morpheus8™ Performed?
Morpheus8™ is a minimally invasive microneedling treatment that does not require incisions or deep anesthesia. The technology creates micro-wounds in the skin that stimulate a natural healing response and increased collagen production. Radiofrequency energy is then emitted into the puncture channels to tighten skin, reduce unwanted fat, and improve skin tone further.
During this procedure:
- Your skin will be numbed with a topical cream so you are as comfortable as possible.
- The skin is cleansed with an antimicrobial formula.
- The Morpheus8™ handpiece creates a series of micro-wounds using thin needles.
- Radiofrequency energy is delivered approximately four millimeters into the skin.
The entire procedure is usually completed within 15 to 60 minutes.
You may elect to have two to four Morpheus8™ procedures to get the most satisfactory results. Ask your provider how many Morpheus8™ sessions you will need.
Can I Combine My Morpheus8™ With Any Other Treatments?
Morpheus8™ treats a variety of skin concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, unwanted fat, and texture concerns; however, it cannot restore significant facial volume where it has been lost. Because of this, Morpheus8™ is often combined with dermal fillers to restore facial volume in the cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds, temples, and more.
Morpheus8™ can also be used on the face and body to maintain the results achieved with other plastic surgery procedures.
What Is Involved in Morpheus8™ Recovery?
You may feel some mild tingling and swelling for up to two days; however, you can return to work immediately unless your doctor indicates otherwise. Makeup can be applied after 24 hours as long as you feel comfortable.
Will I Feel Any Pain During My Morpheus8™ Procedure?
Some clients feel mild stinging or tingling during the procedure. However, a topical anesthetic will be applied to make you as comfortable as possible.
What Risks Are Associated With Morpheus8™?
Risks from Morpheus8™ are low; however, side effects can include:
- A temporary tingling feeling
- Bruising or swelling
- Slight bleeding
- Skin blisters
What Results Can I Expect From Morpheus8™?
After your Morpheus8™ treatment, you can expect to see tighter, firmer, plumper skin and an improvement in skin tone. Because microneedling and radiofrequency treatments stimulate collagen, your results will improve gradually.
When Will I See My Final Morpheus8™ Results?
Morpheus8™ begins to work soon after treatment. However, it can take up to one month or more to see your final results.
How Long Will My Morpheus8™ Results Last?
Morpheus8™ does not stop the natural aging process; however, with good skin care practices, healthy nutrition, and adequate sun protection, you can expect your Morpheus8™ results to last up to three years.
