What Causes Acne?

Acne is caused by excess sebum oil that mixes with dead skin cells and surface debris. Sebum oil is naturally produced in the skin’s pores, but when glands are overactive, it leads to excess oil. The excess oil cannot be absorbed, and it is left sitting on the skin’s surface. The result of this is clogged pores with acne-causing bacteria trapped in the skin.

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is an advanced RF microneedling (radiofrequency microneedling) treatment. Micro needles penetrate the skin’s surface, creating micro-channels or micro-injuries which trigger the body’s natural healing process and production of new collagen. Collagen is a protein that gives the skin elasticity and firmness. The addition of RF technology in the microneedles tightens existing collagen fibers and encourages tissue regeneration for deeper rejuvenation. Renewed tissues and new collagen growth resurface the skin and improve moderate to severe wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, rough texture, and more.

How Does Morpheus8 Work for Acne Treatment?

RF energy generates heat that kills acne-causing bacteria and shrinks overactive sweat glands, similar to its skin-tightening effect. When the size of the oil glands is reduced, they cannot form as much oil and it’s less likely that your pores will be clogged. You can expect less frequent and less severe future breakouts with just a few Morpheus8 treatments.

The skin-healing and tightening abilities of Morpheus8 also make it a great treatment for acne scarring. As collagen production increases, new, healthy skin cells will resurface, essentially covering up acne scars and other skin imperfections. Patients can improve their frustrating acne breakouts and also enjoy smoother, more radiant skin.

What to Expect from Morpheus8 Acne Treatment

Although many patients see significant improvements after a single hour-long Morpheus8 session, it can take 3-4 treatments for optimal results. Treatments are scheduled approximately 4-6 weeks apart in order to see how your skin responds and heals. During your consultation, your provider will let you know how many treatments they recommend given the severity of your acne scarring and aesthetic goals.
