or 10-14 days prior to a Morpheus treatment, we ask that patients discontinue all topical products containing Tretinoin (Retin-A), Retinols, Retinoids, Glycolic Acid, Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Vitamin C, or any anti-aging products and/or treatments. Patients should not ingest blood thinning medications such as Aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen, and Aleve for the prior 7-10 days and most communicate all medications that are being taken prior to the treatment appointment. Patients should also refrain from activities in full sun. Wearing a good sunscreen during this period is a must.
Morpheus8 treatments typically lasts between 1-2 hours, depending on the area that is being treated. In most cases, we recommend a three treatment sessions per area treated for the maximum benefit. Our staff member will apply a topical numbing cream to the area to be treated. Once the numbing has occurred, the Morpheus8 device will then be guided gently across the treatment area, perforating the skin with the needles and heating it with RF energy (the latter of which can be distributed at varying degrees according to your needs). Patients may experience slight discomfort during the Morpheus8 procedure.
There is minimal recovery time with Morpheus8, and and most patients are able to resume normal activities right away.
