Morpheus8 is a revolutionary nonsurgical cosmetic treatment that combines two of the most effective anti-aging technologies on the market: radiofrequency energy and microneedling. Not only does this combination provide much more extensive results than either modality alone, but it also decreases the total procedure time, reduces treatment risks and opens up possibilities for more customization.
At Platinum Medical Spac, we are committed to bringing the world’s most advanced skin rejuvenation and skin tightening treatments in Edmonton. Consult our team of experts to discover the best treatment plan for your skin.
Morpheus8 by InMode stimulates collagen and elastin production at a deeper level. As the micro-needles emit radiofrequency (RF) energy into the skin layers, the skin heats up and tightens, producing a younger appearance.
RF microneedling offers all the benefits of traditional microneedling — the production of collagen, elastin and new skin cells to rejuvenate the skin from the inside out — plus the additional collagen and elastin stimulation that comes with radiofrequency treatment. This allows for more effective creation of the anti-aging building blocks that give the skin support and structure. As a result, the effects are more pronounced and long-lasting.
Unlike other devices, Morpheus8 can be used on both the face and body and is suitable for most skin types. We will fully customize your Morpheus 8 treatment, as the needle depth can be adjusted for your needs.
As our bodies go through the natural aging process, many of our core functions begin to decline. This often happens at a rate that is difficult to notice. But in the case of our skin, big changes can happen in only a few years. That is because the production of collagen, the protein primarily responsible for keeping our skin taut, declines at a rate of 1% annually after the age of 20.
Supplements and skincare products have limited benefits, if any, for collagen production. And while some people have genetics that are more resistant to change, fine lines, wrinkles and facial sagging eventually affect us all.
As aging slows down our metabolism, it’s also possible that we fluctuate in weight and develop pockets of unwanted cellulite. We might also develop stretch marks or earn a few scars from life’s misadventures. Our skin tells our life story, and some chapters are prettier than others.
The medical aesthetics industry has given us a variety of ways to treat these problems individually, but very few can address them all at once. With Morpheus 8, we can do just that — improve wrinkles, sagging skin, scarring, stretch marks, dark spots, cellulite and small amounts of fat — using one versatile treatment platform.
Morpheus8 can treat any of the following conditions:
If you don’t see your specific concern listed, you may still be eligible for Morpheus8 treatment. Request a consultation to speak with one of our experienced medical professionals.
If you are looking to improve any of the conditions listed above, then you are likely a good candidate for this procedure. Morpheus8 features an advanced color-blind technology that allows it to work safely on all skin types. Unlike many laser- or light-based treatments, Morpheus 8 can treat darker skin tones with very little risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Morpheus8 is most commonly performed on the face and neck for complexion concerns. However, the device can also improve body areas where subdermal adipose remodeling is desired.
Some patients are not suitable for treatment with Morpheus8. In those cases, we will work with you to determine the best alternative treatment plan to meet your goals.
During your consultation at Biolite, one of our medical professionals will examine your skin and listen to your aesthetic goals. That information will be used to develop the details of your treatment plan, such as which needles will be used for the microneedling portion and how much RF energy will be applied.
As a minimally invasive procedure, Morpheus8 requires little-to-no preparation in the days and weeks leading up to your treatment. You may need to make subtle adjustments to your medications or lifestyle to prepare for the procedure. These instances are rare, but we are happy to work with you and your other medical professionals to determine the best way to make those temporary changes happen.
Morpheus8 is a simple outpatient treatment performed in the comfort of our relaxing aesthetic clinic. The procedure includes the following steps:
A Morpheus8 treatment for the face and neck can usually be completed within an hour, making it an ideal option for patients with busy schedules.
You can return to your usual routines and daily activities immediately after the procedure is complete. It is normal to experience a few mild side effects after treatment, including redness, swelling or bruising. These side effects resolve on their own within a week.
There are few restrictions after a Morpheus 8 treatment. However, we advise our patients to avoid sun exposure for a few weeks. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily with regular reapplication or cover the treated areas before stepping out to prevent post-procedure hyperpigmentation.
Many people say they can see a difference in their appearance shortly after a Morpheus8 procedure. The results will continue to improve gradually after the procedure as collagen production increases and the deep tissues rebuild. Expect to see more pronounced improvements in about three weeks. The results last around a year.
Regular follow-up sessions, a good skincare routine and a healthy lifestyle will maximize the longevity of your results with Morpheus 8. Depending on the extent of improvement desired, an initial series of two to four treatments may be considered before beginning a long-term maintenance program.
