Most patients who choose treatment with Morpheus8 feel that its ability to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, reduce obvious sun damage, lighten acne scars and tighten the skin, all with little downtime, makes the price of the treatment worth it. If you want to reverse the signs of aging and give your skin a smoother and fresher appearance, it's worth considering Morpheus8. It's safe for almost all skin tones and types and is a great alternative to fillers and Botox for those who don't use needles. When Kim Kardashian popularized Morpheus8 in the field of aesthetics, it aroused our interest, but we knew that it was now our responsibility to determine if this new technology was worth it before offering it to our patients. Morpheus8 is a microneedle device that uses 24 gold-tipped needles that pass an electrical current under the skin.
Needles and energy cause microdamage under the skin, which stimulates collagen production. Reszko's Park Avenue office, which includes Morpheus8, the growth serum and a post-treatment oxygen facial treatment, requires no pocket money. With Morpheus8, I was especially interested in seeing if the areas around the jawline, the submental area (below the chin), the nasolabial folds (the sides of the nose) and the eyebrows would lift and harden after sessions. Lasers, such as Fraxel and Clear and Brilliant, are better at treating brown spots, but Morpheus8 is ideal for fine lines and skin tightening.
When I heard about Morpheus8 (the procedure Kim K put on my radar), I knew I had to try it, so I scheduled an appointment with Dr. S from Idriss Dermatology in New York City. He informed me that Morpheus8 “isn't the best device for treating hyperpigmentation, including sun spots and age spots”. An hour before, a Morpheus8 anesthetic cream had been applied to the area to be treated, since without it the procedure can be painful.
For someone considered to have a high tolerance for pain, Morpheus8 had about eight out of ten. Morpheus8 is considered a minimally invasive treatment, so people with skin laxity that is too mild to undergo a more invasive procedure, such as a facelift, or those who are not interested in injectables, such as fillers or neuromodulators, may find this treatment an appropriate option. As someone who avoids neurotoxins and fillers (for now), and has no plans to perform more invasive procedures like a facelift anytime soon, Morpheus8 is worth the price and the pain. Despite being such a powerful treatment, the downtime after my treatment with Morpheus8 was relatively minimal.
If you follow celebrity news a bit, you might have come across Kim Kardashian's viral Instagram post promoting Morpheus8 as her favorite stomach-tightening treatment. Morpheus8 has many benefits for the skin of the face, neck and body due to its ability to activate collagen and elastin production. During a treatment with Morpheus8, ultrafine needles are imprinted on the skin that emit radio frequency energy to create a controlled lesion which causes collagen and elastin production - two key proteins responsible for skin firmness, stiffness and softness. With 24 microneedles, Morpheus8 technology penetrates up to 4 mm deep into the skin and radio frequency is emitted through the tips of the needles.
