At Ra Skin and aesthetics, Dr. Rashmi Shetty has always believed in micro-needling and radio-frequency, and the MORPHEUS 8 is just another step ahead when it comes to this combination. Micro-needling has enjoyed a high place in the world of beauty, but de-throning it lately, is Morpheus 8 – a celebrity approved ritual that leaves you with tighter, firmer skin. This new treatment is your go-to if what you want is to reverse the fine signs of ageing, while looking completely natural!
So let’s break it down for you.
WHAT IS MORPHEUS 8?
Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, tissues of the face and body can be remodelled to reveal a more radiant youthful appearance. Simply put, Morpheus8 is a radio-frequency (RF) micro-needling device, meaning it combines the properties and benefits of both radiofrequency technology and microneedling procedures, to deliver to you visibly better looking skin.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH IT?
Morpheus8 can be used on any areas that can benefit from resurfacing and subnormal renewal. The most commonly treated areas include the face, peri orbital area, abdomen, thighs, legs, and buttocks.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE RECOMMENDED?
The answer to this always depends on the condition of the skin that you begin with. For instance, if you have a lot of scarring or wide open pores, Dr. Shetty might recommend additional sittings in order to correct those first.
The number of sessions required relies heavily on the initial presentation of the canvas. Dr. Shetty conducts a thorough consultation in order to determine this.
Note: Treatments such as these work by stimulating your own collagen, which means that your own body needs to respond to the stimulation. At Ra Skin and Aesthetics, we believe in not making you do excessive or un-required sittings.
Dr. Shetty emphasises the need to respect your skin by giving it 3 month gaps to regenerate, and for the underlying tissue to respond to the session.
At that point of time, Dr. Shetty will assess the response and decide how to proceed and best address your concern.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically after three weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF FRACTIONATED ENERGY?
Radio-frequency (RF) energy is a scientifically proven method to remodel and rebuild collagen. It is minimally invasive using a matrix of micro-pins to renew the deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime.
CAN ANYONE USE MORPHEUS8?
The benefit of Morpheus8’s colour blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types. The unique properties allow even darker tones to be treated.
CAN THIS BE USED IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?
Yes, Morpheus 8 can be used in the same treatment session, or a few days after other treatments. Morpheus 8 can also be combined with other InMode energy treatments or injectables to achieve more extensive results.
When we use Morpheus 8 on younger patients with intentions of tightening the pores, reducing oil gland size, reducing skin oiliness, or acne scars, we combine it with deep pore cleansers such as Hydra-facials, peels, or even PRP in the case of acne scars specifically.
For more aged patients, when we use this device for skin tightening, collagen regeneration, or anti-ageing purposes, we combine Morpheus8 with collagen stimulators or bio regenerators like Profhilo, Volite, or skin boosters.
At times, Dr. Shetty even chooses to work with injectible volumizers such as fillers, relaxers such as botox, higher surface RF devices like Thermage and Forma, or highly focussed ultrasound like Ultherapy and SygmaLift.
At Ra Skin and Aesthetics, we put together a comprehensive program with the best devices for you, that is completely personalised based on your skin goals.
WHEN CAN I PUT MAKE-UP ON AFTER TREATMENT?
Since patient downtime is minimal, make-up can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro-lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness depending on treatment parameters.
WHAT KIND OF POST PROCEDURE CARE IS REQUIRED?
Patients should moisturise the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a broad spectrum sunscreen everyday. In addition to reducing the risk of skin cancer sunscreens also slow the raging process.
MORPHEUS 8 AT RA SKIN AND AESTHETICS
With each individual having their own specific skin goal, knowing how to alter the use of the device, combine it with other treatments, and adapt the technology in a way that gives you the tailor made result that you have come for is what we are best known for.
Dr. Rashmi Shetty has been a huge advocate of micro-needling with radio-frequency well before it became a cult in the beauty world. With over 14 years of experience with various devices of micro-needling with radio-frequency.
The Scarlet RF Micro-needling has been a long favourite of hers, but the effects of Morpheus8 go a little deeper than that. The radio-frequency conducts between the tip and the surface, thus delivering more tissue stimulation. With this enhanced penetration, the Morpheus8 can assist in re-modelling the facial shape. This device works especially well in reducing the fat where it is not needed, especially in the lower face.
It also reduces the fat pockets between the tether of the skin in cases such a cellulite, and has reversing effects on stretch marks. Other benefits include skin tightening, pore reduction, hydration of the skin, and pigmentation. All these are the side effects of the collagen stimulating ability and increase in water holding capacity of the skin with the Morpheus8.
Dr. Rashmi Shetty only picks up the best U.S FDA approved machines that have stood the test of time. She is quick to adapt to the newest and most sophisticated gadgets and devices in the world of skin and beauty.
