Radio Frequency Microneedling
Microneedling has been used for decades in Europe as a method of skin rejuvenation to smooth lines and creases and trigger natural collagen and elastin production. Morpheus8 takes the treatment one step further by delivering radio frequency (RF) energy deep below the surface of the skin for intense skin rejuvenation.
What is radio frequency microneedling with Morpheus8?
As you begin to age, your skin will lose some of its youthful firmness, showing signs of hyperpigmentation and fine lines and wrinkles. When it comes to revitalizing your complexion, there are many treatments – how do you know which is the right one for you? Morpheus8 is a revolutionary treatment designed to help you restore that lit-from-within glow by combining the skin-rejuvenating properties of microneedling in combination with RF skin tightening.
How is radio frequency microneedling used?
Traditional microneedling uses a hand-held device with ultra-fine needles. These microneedles penetrate the surface of the skin to create a series of controlled injuries to the skin, which then stimulates your body’s healing processes to repair the tiny injuries. This treatment alone stimulates your natural production of collagen and elastin, important substances that give your skin volume and elasticity. What makes Morpheus8 unique is the addition of RF energy. When the ultra-fine needles of the Morpheus8 applicator penetrate the skin, they deliver RF energy deeply below its surface, tightening your skin for firmer, more supple skin.
What are the benefits of Morpheus8?
If you are looking for a treatment that will alleviate the signs of aging without the need for more invasive options, Morpheus8 could be ideally suited to your needs. Radio frequency microneedling will address many skin issues that may cause you distress, including:
- Deep lines and creases
- Areas of skin laxity
- Cystic acne
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin texture
What can I expect during treatment with Morpheus8?
We will perform your radio frequency microneedling procedure in the luxurious comfort of our Vancouver facilities. A topical numbing cream will be applied to allow you to relax while he works. As the microneedling device penetrates the surface of your skin, you will feel a gentle warming sensation beneath its surface. This warming comes from the RF energy being delivered deep into the layers of your skin, triggering the new collagen production and skin tightening. Dr. Gabriel traditionally recommends a series of three treatments at four to six-week intervals so you can enjoy optimal results.
Is there any recovery time required following radio frequency microneedling?
Since radio frequency microneedling is only minimally invasive, there is little downtime required following treatment. You may experience redness, irritation, or pinpoint bleeding at the treatment site, which will subside within a few days. You may resume wearing makeup approximately one to two days following your procedure. You must take extra care to apply adequate sun protection, and avoid prolonged exposure, as your skin will be particularly susceptible following treatment.
