Morpheus8 is a safe and effective minimally invasive technology that targets the subdermal layers of the skin to remodel collagen on the face and body. Unlike many other treatments available, Morpheus8 can safely treat all skin types including skin type VI with minimal risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Morpheus8 is the ultimate solution for skin tightening, fine lines and wrinkles, active acne and acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, sun damage and age spots, sagging and loose skin, stretch marks, trauma and surgical scars and more.
Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that encourages and stimulates the creation of collagen in the dermis’ underlying layers. The dermis is one of two main layers of our skin and it is composed of collagen, elastic tissue and other structures such as hair follicles and glands. Underneath the dermis is the hypodermis which is also known as the subdermal fat. This layer is a large network of collagen cells. With Morpheus8 technology, tissues of the face and body can be reshaped to reveal a more radiant and youthful appearance by addressing these deeper layers of the skin.
Traditional microneedling consists of microscopic needles that pierce the epidermis and dermis causing a controlled injury that stimulates collagen and improves the texture and tone of the skin. More recently, radiofrequency microneedling has been introduced which adds energy to the needle. The energy generates heat which stimulates even more collagen production, contraction and improvement. Traditional microneedling and radiofrequency microneedling are limited to the upper layers of the skin.
Morpheus8’s cutting-edge technology adds silicone onto the microscopic needles to protect the epidermis and dermis bypassing the skin altogether to treat the deepest layers such as the subdermal fat. This will cause coagulation, shrink-wrapping and tightening from within.
One of the amazing benefits of Morpheus8 is that it can treat a wide variety of skin concerns at once.
Morpheus8 is the optimal treatment for anyone looking to improve:
Did you know that 80% of people between the ages of 11-30 will have acne and one out of every 5 of those people will develop scarring from the acne? When the pores of your skin become blocked by hair, sebum, bacteria and dead skin cells, acne can develop. When the acne penetrates the skin and damages the deeper layers, scarring can appear.
Morpheus8 works to clear out pores and minimize skin imperfections such as acne by shrinking and closing out the oil glands under your skin. Morpheus8 treats acne scarring by increasing collagen production and stimulating cell turnover which will reduce the appearance of acne scars and provide an overall smoother skin texture.
As we age, collagen and elastin production in our bodies slows down. Exposure to UV (ultraviolet) rays also damages the elastin in our skin. When elastin breaks down this causes our skin to sag and stretch over time.
Morpheus8 tightens the skin by triggering the production of elastin and collagen in the deepest layers of the skin. The needles penetrate our hypodermis, creating channels for radiofrequency energy to be emitted, contracting the tissue while thickening the fat to tighten the area that the treatment is being performed on.
Morpheus8 can be used on any area of the body that can benefit from resurfacing and subdermal renewal. The most commonly treated areas include:
At The Touch-Up Clinic, it’s important to us that we offer solutions for everyone regardless of gender, skin tone, and body shape. Morpheus8 is a colour blind technology meaning that it can be used on all skin types and tones. The unique properties of Morpheus8 make it safe on skin types up to and including type VI with little risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) which can be very common with other resurfacing treatments.
Morpheus8 is a minimally-invasive treatment which means that it does not involve any ablative techniques. Since results are achieved without harsh irritation of the skin, patients can expect a faster recovery time than other resurfacing treatments.
Since downtime is minimal, makeup can be worn 24 hours after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro-lesions for a few days after the treatment as well as slight swelling and redness.
The optimal number of sessions will be recommended based on your desired outcome. In most cases, more than one treatment will be required to see optimal results. Morpheus8 stimulates the production of new collagen and since collagen production happens gradually it can typically take up to six weeks before you will see the complete desired outcome.
This does not mean that you have to wait six weeks to see a difference in your skin. Shortly after your treatment, you can expect your skin to appear more plump, radiant and glowing.
