Morpheus 8 in Houston, TX
Morpheus is a brand new technology that combines two tried and tested methods – microneedling and radio frequency in one device to combat fine lines and wrinkles on your face or any other area of your body. At Reveal MedSpa we offer Morpheus to men and women looking to reverse signs of aging in Cypress, Houston, Sugarland, Katy and surrounding area.
How does Morpheus work?
Morpheus8 is a new and exciting technology which combines the power of 24 micro needles with heat generated by radio frequency. This device is unique in that it delivers 24 very small needles to a depth of up to 4 mm under the skin surface to help with skin tightening, refining acne scars, melting fat, reducing pores, and fine lines and evening skin texture. Proprietary technology in this device allow introduction of extremely sharp needles with minimal discomfort and prevents tugging, pulling and excessive pain.
How is Morpheus performed?
This procedure is done in the office. You do not need any down time and can return to routine activity the same day.
To get ready for this procedure, please stop using any skin care products with vitamin C or RetinA about one week ahead of this procedure.. Stop using all skin care products 24 hours prior to your treatment date. Avoid application of lotion or sunscreen on day of your Morpheus8 treatment.
When you arrive at the office, a numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area for about one hour. The Morpheus treatment will then begin. Prior to the procedure, you may be prescribed some medications to take by mouth to help with anxiety. We often use inhaled anxiolytics to help with both pain and anxiety during the Morpheus8 procedure. Most patients are very comfortable during the treatment.
What areas can be treated with Morpheus8?
Morpheus is a great non ablative treatment option for the following:
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines and wrinkles on face
- Acne scars
- Creepy skin texture
- Sagging skin on face, neck, hands, arms, knees
- Small fatty areas – such as small “double chin”, fatty mons pubis etc.
- Stretch marks on abdomen or other areas.
What should I expect after the procedure?
You will immediately notice that the pores on the skin look finer and shrunken. You will also notice an immediate improvement in skin tone and texture. After the Morpheus8 procedure it is not uncommon to see some swelling, bruising or redness for about a week. This will resolve on its own. Most patients need about 2 sessions for full benefit.
After the treatment you will be asked to liberally apply Aquaphor or other ointment several times a day. Please avoid using lotion or other skin products for 3-5 days post procedure.
