    Morpheus8 Microneedling in Boston

    The Natural Way to Revitalize Your Skin

    Boston Medical Aesthetics is proud to announce that we now offer our patients in Boston microneedling, specifically Morpheus8 Radiofrequency Microneedling, a minimally invasive treatment that restores and rejuvenates your skin for a more youthful appearance. This popular device utilizes cutting-edge technology to induce and accelerate collagen production, a natural biological process that enhances skin texture, pigmentation, and contour on the face or body. Ask the providers at Boston Medical Aesthetics more about Morpheus8 for clinically proven, youthful-looking results.

    What is Morpheus8 RF Microneedling?

    Morpheus8 Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling is an innovative take on a classic aesthetic procedure. For years, aestheticians have used microneedling to promote the skin’s natural healing abilities by inserting tiny needles into the skin. The needles cause micro-lesions in the skin, triggering restorative changes in skin cells to improve your overall look.

    Morpheus8 has revolutionized microneedling, starting with the needles themselves, which penetrate to a deeper level of the skin than traditional microneedling. In addition to the depth, the needles deliver a burst of radiofrequency energy, which activates a natural healing cascade that increases collagen and elastin. This improves the overall appearance of the skin’s texture and shrinks pores. Morpheus8 microneedling also reduces skin irregularities such as fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation issues.

    What can I treat with Morpheus8 Microneedling?

    Morpheus8 is a versatile microneedling treatment that can be used for various conditions across your body. When you come in for a consultation for Morpheus8 RF Microneedling Boston Medical Aesthetics will help you determine the best treatment method for each of your concerns. Whether you’d like to address skin issues due to aging, sun damage, or other environmental factors, we can assist you with creating a comprehensive treatment plan to address each of those issues in the most effective and complete way possible. RF microneedling can be used to treat the following:

    • Loose skin:
      The RF energy and collagen induction of Morpheus8 naturally tighten the skin by encouraging the production of collagen and elastin in the treatment area. You can treat loose skin on the face, neck, and even other parts of the body.
    • Fine lines and wrinkles:
      When your body heals itself following a Morpheus8 RF microneedling treatment, fine lines and wrinkles fade away as younger, healthier-looking skin emerges. Improvement can be seen in forehead wrinkles, smile lines, and more.
    • Submental fat (double chin):
      While Morpheus8 is not a weight loss technique, its combination of skin tightening and RF microneedling can reduce the appearance of stubborn fat in certain areas, such as under the chin. Because of the RF technology, Morpheus8 is an effective treatment for eliminating unwanted fat deposits.
    • Acne and acne scarring:
      The microneedling process breaks down the old skin of acne scars and promotes the growth of younger, healthier skin. This new skin reduces the visibility of acne scars and helps control the negative effects of acne breakouts while reducing their activity.
    • Scars:
      Scars form as a way for skin to heal a wound and bind two pieces of skin together. When the microneedles of Morpheus8 penetrate scar tissue, they break up the scar and generate new, healthy tissue at the site. As the new skin reaches the surface, the scar fades.
    • Stretch Marks:
      Stretch marks come when your skin stretches faster than its natural elasticity. This can be due to pregnancy, rapid weight loss, or rapid weight gain. By encouraging collagen and elastin production as well as generating newer, healthier skin, Morpheus8 softens the look of stretch marks, and in some cases, erases them entirely.

    What can Morpheus8 RF Microneedling do?

    With Morpheus8, you can transform the look and feel of your skin and regain confidence in your appearance. Enjoy your skin feeling flawless and looking radiant, all with a short office visit and minimal downtime.

    Many patients treated with Morpheus8 experience less need to rely on repeated use of expensive at-home skin rejuvenation treatments. With the collagen building and elasticity improvement results offered by Morpheus8, this also means that any future considerations for more invasive or surgical procedures can be delayed or even eliminated.

    Overall, Morpheus8 RF Microneedling provides a comprehensive option to treat a wide variety of skin concerns in many areas of the body. After receiving Morpheus8 Microneedling, your complexion could benefit from:

    • Reduced trauma or acne scarring
    • Smoother fine lines and wrinkles
    • Improved skin texture
    • Smaller pores
    • More even skin tone and pigmentation
    • Better skin elasticity

    Am I a candidate for Morpheus8 RF Microneedling?

    When determining whether you are a good fit for this treatment, there are several factors that we will consider. We will start by taking a detailed medical and aesthetic treatment history to see if any past experiences might rule out this method for you. Information about your current health status must also be considered. Candidates for Morpheus8 RF Microneedling should be in good health.

    Recent radiation therapy, implanted defibrillator or pacemakers, pregnancy, and hypertrophic scarring are contraindications. Treatments cannot be performed over areas with tattoos, any active inflammation, or infection. Patients should avoid having neurotoxins injected within seven days and dermal fillers injected within three weeks prior to treatment. Patients should also discontinue a topical retinoid (if used) for three to four days before the treatment.

    Morpheus8 is great for all skin types and tones, as well as those with sensitive skin. Even patients with deep skin tones can benefit from Morpheus8, unlike other methods that may not work well. If you are seeking comprehensive skin rejuvenation with a quick and non-invasive procedure, then you are likely a good candidate. Prime candidates for this treatment are those seeking to correct issues throughout the face, neck, and other parts of the body. Concerns that can be addressed include:

    • Wrinkles
    • Fine lines
    • Creases
    • Enlarged pores
    • Sagging jowls
    • Double chin
    • Acne scars
    • Discoloration
    • Sun damage
    • Dark spots
    • Freckles
    • Fatty Deposits
    • Stretch marks
    • Uneven Skin Texture

    The Morpheus8 RF Microneedling Procedure

    The appointment will begin with an application of a topical anesthetic cream. The microneedling procedure itself takes between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the treatment plan you have selected. Your provider will evaluate and select an individualized plan of care with specific energy settings to maintain safety while optimizing your results. After the completion of the procedure, the provider will apply soothing cooling pads and hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin.

    Recovery

    Morpheus8 RF Microneedling treatments require very little recovery time. You may experience certain minor side effects like redness, itching, light oozing or swelling in the treatment area, which typically resolve within 24-48 hours after the treatment.

    We suggest that you stay out of the sun for several days and avoid strenuous exercise the day after your treatment. You should avoid oil-based skincare products and makeup after Morpheus8 for one to two days. Our trained providers will outline a recommended post-treatment skincare regimen.

    Results

    Morpheus8 works best in a series of three treatments over three months. Many patients see results within 6-8 weeks after their initial treatment, with improving results after each subsequent treatment.

    Once you have finished the treatment series, you should expect your final results within three to six months, and may continue to see improvements over time as collagen and elastin tighten your skin. Morpheus8 may be combined with other procedures to create a comprehensive plan to keep skin looking smoother and younger for years to come!

    How long will Morpheus8 results last?

    After an optimized series of treatments with Morpheus8 is completed over the course of a few months, the final results usually last up to a year. To lengthen the effects of your treatment as long as possible, maintenance can be improved by avoiding sun exposure and wearing sunscreen. Other good practices for maintaining results include keeping skin moisturized, not smoking, and practicing good daily skincare routines. Regular skin peels and facials can aid in making Morpheus8 RF Microneedling results last.

    FAQs

    Because Morpheus8 includes the added component of radiofrequency, it does have more comprehensive and powerful benefits than standard microneedling. The RF technology adds a deeper level of collagen stimulation as well as the ability to provide fat reduction.

    Most patients consider Morpheus8 treatment to be very tolerable and note that it feels like a warm, scratching sensation. A topical anesthetic may be used to help with any mild discomfort.

    Side effects can include swelling, redness, and sensitivity. More rare risks can include bleeding or hyperpigmentation. However, the Morpheus8 technology has a lower risk of post-treatment hyperpigmentation than other resurfacing methods and is a very safe option.

    The cost of treatment with Morpheus8 varies depending on the size of the treatment area and the number of sessions that will be needed to achieve desired results. Full pricing details will be discussed during a consultation.

    No, since this is a non-invasive treatment, normal activity can be resumed right after treatment. Skincare routines may need to be altered, but other types of activities are generally resumable immediately.

    We recommend using a gentle skin routine for several days after the procedure to allow for complete healing. Light makeup can usually be worn after the initial redness and swelling have gone down after about 1-2 days.
