Skin imperfections can really affect your confidence, which can affect other aspects of your life. Fortunately, you have many options for dealing with these imperfections – ranging from surgical procedures to things you can try at home. Morpheus8 is available at Amara Medical Aesthetics, and it is yet another option that can help you have the beautiful skin you want!
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 uses two effective treatments together, for impressive results. It combines radiofrequency energy and microneedling. In microneedling, very tiny needles are used to puncture the skin, creating “micro-injuries.” These micro-injuries aren’t painful, but they do stimulate new skin cells, collagen, and elastin to grow – in essence, creating new, healthy, young-looking skin.
Patients find microneedling, in itself, to be very effective, but adding radiofrequency energy allows the treatment to reach even deeper layers of the skin. The procedure is used to treat sun damaged skin, sagging skin, enlarged pores, acne and acne scars, and irregular skin tone and texture.
Morpheus8 has other benefits as well. The treatment only takes about an hour and only requires a topical anesthetic. It is not painful – patients report there is only a mild heat, and afterward there may be some swelling, redness, and bruising, which can be treated with an over-the-counter pain medication. You may also notice some tiny scabs.
You can get right back to your daily activities after the procedure – there is no downtime needed. However, you should make sure to stay out of the sun immediately after you leave your doctor’s office, and make sure to wear sunscreen when you do go outside. And, you shouldn’t wear makeup for about 2 days after the treatment.
Although some patients only need one treatment, others may need a few sessions. The results are permanent, although the occasional touch-up can help keep your skin looking great. It may take some time to see the final results of Morpheus8, as skin starts to rebuild itself.
So, what can Morpheus8 do for you? It can give you tighter, younger-looking, blemish-free skin! Contact Amara Medical Aesthetics in Bellevue, Washington, for a Morpheus8 appointment. Call (425) 455-2131 today!
