Smooth, vibrant skin is not only attractive, but it can also make you look years younger and provide a major boost to your self-confidence. Unfortunately, as we get older, our skin tends to sag and develop various blemishes, including fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. However, youthful, glowing skin may be easier to achieve than you realize. At SVIA Med Spa, we offer an innovative skin rejuvenation treatment called Morpheus8, and it may be exactly what you need to enhance the health and appearance of your skin.
How Does Morpheus8 Work?
Morpheus8 treatment utilizes a device that combines two revolutionary technologies: microneedling and radiofrequency energy. The Morpheus8 device uses tiny needles to create little holes in the deep layers of the skin. These tiny wounds trigger the body’s healing process, which stimulates collagen production and allows new, healthy skin cells to generate.
Collagen is an essential protein for the overall health and complexion of the skin. After these micro-wounds have been created, the Morpheus8 device then delivers radiofrequency energy, which heats the deep layers of skin. This tightens the skin and eliminates excess fat without damaging any of the surrounding tissue.
Where Can Morpheus8 Be Used?
The most common area for Morpheus8 treatment is the face, but it can also be used in several other places, including:

Next, your treatment provider will carefully use the Morpheus8 device to treat your targeted skin. The device’s tips and pins will be customized based on your personal needs and treatment plan to ensure optimal results.
In total, the treatment should take between 30 minutes and an hour to complete. After it’s finished, a special gel will be applied to your skin to cleanse and protect it.
How Long Is the Recovery Time?
You'll be able to return home immediately after your Morpheus8 treatment is finished, and you should have no problem returning to your normal routine right away. However, you'll need to avoid strenuous physical activity for at least 48 hours. Additionally, your skin will likely look and feel like you have a sunburn, and you'll need to keep it out of direct sunlight.
