The Science Behind RF Microneedling
As a person ages, their skin’s rate of collagen and elastin protein production declines. This makes skin lose elasticity and start to sag. The skin is composed of many layers, and all of these layers lose elasticity over time.
Morpheus8 uses numerous microneedles to create microinjuries in the skin layers, stimulating the skin’s natural healing process. This remodels collagen and elastin for tighter skin. Because the needles penetrate so deeply into the tissues (up to 4 mm deep), they allow for more effective tightening and rejuvenation.
Once the microneedles have penetrated to the chosen depth, radiofrequency energy is emitted to heat the tissues. This stimulates production of new collagen and elastin protein throughout the skin layers.
The RF Microneedling Treatment Process
At the start of this procedure, the targeted area is numbed with a topical anesthetic. This helps to avoid any pain or discomfort. The Morpheus8 handpiece is then held against the treatment area and RF energy is administered. This is repeated across all desired treatment regions. The process takes around a half hour to an hour to complete.
Results appear over time as new collagen and elastin form, causing loose skin to become tighter and more youthful looking. Typically, three RF microneedling sessions are required in order to achieve optimal results. The exact number of sessions will vary depending on each patient’s rejuvenation goals.
Patients can return home immediately following their RF microneedling treatment session. There will be a degree of temporary swelling and redness in the targeted regions. Avoid scratching or picking at the areas.
Moisturizing the treated areas is vital, as is protecting them with a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Avoiding heavy sun exposure is recommended. After one to two days, makeup can be applied.
How Much Does RF Microneedling Cost?
Every med spa sets its own price for RF microneedling with Morpheus8. The exact cost of your treatment will depend on the number of sessions needed, the skin issues being addressed, and many other factors.
