How Is Morpheus8 Different from Other Microneedling Treatments?

Microneedling may sound a little nerve-racking, but it’s actually a safe, effective way to rejuvenate your skin without surgery and without downtime. What’s more, topical anesthetics make the treatment surprisingly comfortable — and an ideal choice for nearly anyone looking to help their skin look and feel smoother and more youthful. 

The Morpheus8® microneedling system from InMode® takes the science of microneedling a step further, combining the traditional technique with radiofrequency (RF) energy for maximum effectiveness and beautiful results.

Michele Meinhart, FNP offers Morpheus8 microneedling for the face and the body for patients at Starkey Medical Esthetics, using a custom approach focused on each person’s unique goals. In this post, she explains how microneedling works and what makes Morpheus8 different from other microneedling treatments.

The science behind microneedling

To understand the benefits of Morpheus8, you need to understand how microneedling works to improve your skin’s appearance and health. Most people know microneedling uses needles, but they don’t know a lot beyond that.

It’s true that the microneedling device is studded with a series of very short, thin needles. As we pass the device over your skin, those needles penetrate the upper layer of tissue, creating a series of tiny channels leading to deeper layers of your skin.

These channels work in a couple of key ways: First, they stimulate controlled healing responses, including the development of new collagen networks, smoothing over scars and helping your skin look healthier and more youthful. 

Second, by creating all those tiny channels, microneedling helps other treatments work better. Specifically, those channels act as conduits to carry healing serums and other products to the deeper layers of skin for maximum benefits.

Morpheus8 vs. traditional microneedling

Morpheus8 uses radiofrequency energy to take these benefits a step further. The Morpheus8 device is designed not only to create tiny channels in your skin, but to administer very tiny currents of radiofrequency energy, as well. 

RF energy gently heats those deeper tissues, enhancing collagen production for greater benefits and improved results compared with traditional microneedling. At the same time, that heat helps shrink and tighten collagen networks, for skin that looks immediately tighter and more toned.

The combination of microneedling and RF energy allows us to use Morpheus8 for needs beyond those treated with traditional microneedling. For instance, Morpheus8 helps reduce excess sweating (hyperhidrosis) and eliminates stubborn pockets of unwanted fatty tissue and cellulite, too.

The needle depth is completely customizable, as well, enabling us to tailor your treatment based on the issues we’re treating, the area of treatment, and other factors unique to you. Better still, Morpheus8 RF microneedling can be used in multiple areas of your body, including your face, neck, chest, and other areas where you want to improve the texture and tone of your skin.

Morpheus offers immediate results, thanks to the tightening effects of its RF energy delivery. But maximum benefits take a few weeks to develop as collagen remodeling occurs. Most people benefit from a series of treatments to see maximum results.

For these reasons, now is the ideal time to begin treatment, so you can enjoy your beautiful results by the time summer arrives. If you’re ready to learn more about Morpheus8 and how it can help you achieve your aesthetic goals, request an appointment online or over the phone with the team at Starkey Medical Esthetics in Salem, Virginia, today.
