What Is Morpheus8 Microneedling?

Morpheus8 is a state-of-the-art fractional remodeling tool that targets fine lines and wrinkles by acting on the tissue deep in your skin. More specifically, Morpheus8 is a microneedling and radiofrequency device used at our office in St. Petersburg that supercharges conventional microneedling to yield transformative results.

Morpheus8 radiofrequency heat triggers your body’s natural cellular regenerative processes. Consequently, collagen production is stimulated and skin is tightened.

How Does Morpheus8 Microneedling Work?

The device contains several tiny needles that pierce your skin on activation, forming deep channels. The device simultaneously releases radiofrequency energy to the treatment area to heat the subdermal skin. The temperature above and below the skin is constantly measured to avoid overheating and burning.

This radiofrequency energy triggers a healing process in your cells while restructuring and strengthening your skin. The radiofrequency energy combined with microneedling stimulates collagen production and increases skin elasticity, making Morpheus8 one of the most effective microneedling solutions in St. Petersburg.

Benefits of Morpheus8 Microneedling

Morpheus8 microneedling in St. Petersburg offers the following benefits:

  • Little to no risk of inflammation and hyperpigmentation, which are common in other resurfacing procedures
  • Improved facial contours and structure
  • Reduction in the appearance of blemishes, scars, and stretch marks
  • Reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • No risk of burning of the surface or subdermal skin

Radiofrequency and microneedling are safe when performed with the Morpheus8 device.

Am I Eligible for Morpheus8 Microneedling?

Morpheus8 microneedling is recommended if you prefer minimally invasive skin treatment procedures. It is suitable for virtually any skin tone and sensitivity and does not carry the risk of hyperpigmentation.

However, before undergoing Morpheus8, it is important to make sure you do not have a skin infection or any active cold sores. Treating these conditions before scheduling a Morpheus8 microneedling procedure is vital to avoiding skin damage.

In most cases, the best candidate for Morpheus8 microneedling is anyone in St. Petersburg with realistic expectations and relatively mild skin aging signs.

What to Do Before Your Morpheus8 Microneedling Procedure

Be sure to prepare your skin properly before your procedure to ensure a safe and positive outcome. If you recently underwent IPL or a laser procedure, wait at least two weeks before undergoing a Morpheus8 treatment in St. Petersburg.

Ensure your skin is fully healed from any sunburn before pursuing treatment. Stop applying skincare products containing vitamin C, retinol, or exfoliants at least 48 hours before your procedure.

You should also avoid waxing, electrolysis, and depilatory creams for five to seven days before undergoing Morpheus8. If possible, shave a few days before your treatment rather than the day of your appointment.

What To Expect During Your Morpheus8 Microneedling Procedure

The Morpheus8 procedure is relatively simple. Dr. Lo may apply topical numbing cream to the treatment area to keep you comfortable, though the procedure does not require general anesthesia For those that require some sedation, Dr. Lo offers nitrous oxide for use during the procedure.

If necessary, Dr. Lo may opt to combine Morpheus8 with alternative rejuvenation treatments offered at our office in St. Petersburg, such as platelet-rich plasma. After using the Morpheus8 device, Dr. Lo may apply a serum to boost your skin’s health and healing.

What to Do After Your Morpheus8 Microneedling Procedure

Fortunately, downtime is minimal following a Morpheus8 microneedling treatment in St. Petersburg. You may apply makeup one to two days after your procedure. We recommend regular checkups with Dr. Lo to monitor your healing process and discuss the possibility of another session.
