Dr. Bonnie Straka is thrilled to introduce Morpheus8 - the newest, most advanced minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure. Morpheus (M8) has been hailed as excellent by top dermatologists and plastic surgeons for treating fine lines, wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, skin irregularities, and laxity.
This FDA-cleared treatment pairs microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy simultaneously. The results include an overall improvement to skin tone, smoothness, brightness, and tightness with minimal downtime.
Morpheus8 is safe for skin of all colors and can be used anywhere on the face and body. It is especially popular for treating the face, jawline, neck, and abdomen.
How does Morpheus8 work?
The Morpheus8 treatment combines microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy - two proven skin rejuvenation methods. The therapies are delivered simultaneously in one treatment, increasing their efficacy to new levels of skin improvement.
Morpheus8 targets both the dermis and epidermis (lower and upper layers of the skin). Microneedling involves a matrix of micro-needles gently puncturing the skin to renew the deeper layers. This collagen-induction therapy initiates a recovery cascade of collagen and elastin production in the skin. Simultaneously, Morpheus8 delivers the fractional RF energy deep into the skin, causing coagulation in the treated areas. This remodels and tightens tissue at the subcutaneous level of the skin, ensuing a short recovery time and increased benefits over time.
Visible results may be appreciated within a week, but typically the most notable changes can be seen after three weeks. The skin continues to improve over the three months following treatment as skin cells turn over and new collagen and elastin develop. More than one treatment is often recommended for optimal results. The treatments are usually spaced four to six weeks apart.
