Morpheus8 Skin Tightening Treatment

Morpheus Skin Tightening TreatmentWhat is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is available at the office of Dr. Philip Solomon in Toronto. Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive anti-aging, skin rejuvenation treatment that combines micro-needling with radiofrequency heat. Morpheus8 uses tiny needles to deliver radiofrequency energy deep into the skin. This creates “micro lesions” that stimulates your body’s natural healing responseto produce new collagen and elastin, to firm and tighten the skin.

Morpheus8 has many benefits and can treat all skin types. Morpheus8 can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimize skin laxity by tightening areas of the face including the jawline, neck, cheeks and lower eyelids. It can also improve texture, smoothing rough or uneven skin and reduce pore size. Acne scarring and hyperpigmentation can also be improved with Morpheus8.

At Solomon Facial Plastic in Toronto, Dr. Philip Solomon will customize your Morpheus8 treatment to address your concerns, your skin type and your goals.

Why Morpheus8 vs Micro-needling?

What makes Morpheus8 superior to other micro-needling devicesis the ability to control the depth of the treatment. Morpheus8 uses tiny coated needles to puncture the skin to deliver radiofrequency heat to the dermis. Morpheus8 can address not only the superficial layers of the skin, but the intermediate and deeper layers as well.

“This process of combining radiofrequency and micro-needling is extremely effective for the production of collagen which is key to looking more youthful.” says Dr. Philip Solomon “Repeatedly puncturing of the skin can cause microtrauma that initiates collagen production. In using micro-needling with electrical energy this can also contribute to improving the texture and tone of the skin in addition to skin tightening”.

How Long is Treatment and Recovery?

At Solomon Facial Plastic Toronto, we always want to ensure that our patients are comfortable during their Morpheus8 treatment. We provide topical numbing for a minimum of 45 minutes prior to beginning treatment. Your Morpheus8 procedurecan take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment site. You may feel slight pressure during the procedure. Be sure to let your provider know if you are feeling any discomfort so we can keep you as comfortable as possible.

Morpheus8 recovery is typically quite easy with no real downtime required. Common side effects include redness, swelling and itchiness for about 3 days. Dr. Solomon often recommends doing your Morpheus8 treatment on a Friday so you can be back to work on Monday.

Avoiding direct sun light and active skin care ingredients such as retinol and alpha hydroxy acid up to two weeks prior and two weeks following your Morpheus8 procedure is recommended.

Your skin may be slightly inflamed and pink in colour for 3-5 days following your Morpheus8 treatment. Healing time can vary from patient to patient.

When will Results be Visible and How Long do Results Last

Visible results may be immediate however optimal results are typically visible three months following your Morpheus8 treatment, once new collagen has had time to develop.In some cases, patients may require multiple treatments for optimal results depending on their skin concerns. Skin with more significant laxity or deeper acne scarring may require multiple treatments.

Results can last several years depending on your lifestyle, genetics and environmental factors. Repeating your Morpheus8 treatment once a year is recommended.

Is There a Benefit to Combining Treatments with Morpheus8?

At Solomon Facial Plastic we strongly recommend using a variety of modalities to address the aging face. We believe that the best line of attack is to address your concerns from a variety of directions. FaceTite, Sofwaveand CO2 Laser Resurfacing, are just a few procedures we recommend combining with Morpheus8.

For the aging face, we also offerinjectable treatments such as Botox and Dermal Filler to address fine lines, wrinkles and volume loss.

Adding a daily regimen of Medical Grade Skin Care products can also contribute to healthier looking skin. Once your two week healing time has passed following your Morpheus8 procedure, we recommend products with growth factors, peptides, retinol, vitamin c and hyaluronic acid to add to your daily skin care routine, with the guidance of a medical professional, as different skin types may have different needs and skin concerns.

You will also want to avoid direct sun light for up to two weeks following your Morpheus8 procedure and recommend wearing a minimum of SPF 45.
