Radiofrequency microneedling for effective, fractional tissue rejuvenation.
Morpheus (RF Micro-needling)
What is Morpheus?
Morpheus is an innovative new treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to remodel deep tissues through microneedling. Microneedling works by creating tiny channels in the skin which jumpstart the skin’s rejuvenation processes— this technique is called collagen induction therapy (CIT) . The Morpheus handpiece contains micro-needles that emit RF energy to tighten and rejuvenate the skin, enhancing collagen production and tissue regeneration. Morpheus can be used on the face and body for effective, renewing results that reach deep in the skin for treatment of moderate wrinkles and folds, acne scars, and skin tone concerns.
Am I a Candidate for Morpheus?
The best candidates for Morpheus are patients looking for non-surgical skin tightening and remodeling treatments for wrinkles and folds. During a consultation with our laser technicians, we can determine whether Morpheus is your best option or whether a surgical procedure will be able to produce your intended results. Many candidates for Morpheus benefit from additional non-surgical treatments for best results, and we can create the right treatment package for you using our best options. Morpheus can be customized to the exact depth needed for treatment of your unique skin concerns.
How is Morpheus Performed?
Morpheus requires a quick and easy treatment session performed in our Cary office. We can provide a topical anesthetic so that you’re comfortable and relaxed throughout the procedure. After preparing your skin, the handpiece is applied to your treatment areas. The Morpheus handpiece contains 24 silicone-coated pins to penetrate the skin and tighten the deep tissues by emitting radiofrequency energy. Morpheus uses bipolar radiofrequency technology, meaning the energy passes between two poles in the handpiece. Once the treatment is complete, active ingredients can be applied for increased absorption deep in the skin. Overall, Morpheus can take less than an hour to complete, depending on your treatment areas.
What Can I Expect After Morpheus?
After treatment, you can expect redness and sensitivity, which subside quickly. There’s no downtime required after Morpheus, although you should be sure to keep the treatment area protected with sunscreen. Our laser technicians can ensure you know which skincare products to avoid as your skin recovers. Most patients benefit from a package of regular treatments for best results, and we can create the right treatment plan for you during a consultation.
