Morpheus8 in Amarillo, TX
Skin tightening treatments have evolved dramatically over the last two decades. Morpheus8 and Morpheus Prime are FDA-approved treatments for addressing skin laxity, wrinkles, and fine lines around the eyes and face. Dr. Walter John Murrell of Amarillo, TX, is proud to offer his patients this minimally invasive, advanced skin rejuvenation treatment to patients.
What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus 8 and its counterpart, Morpheus Prime, are designed to tighten the skin by stimulating collagen production. Collagen is your skin’s central building block, ensuring tightness and elasticity that prevents wrinkling. As you age, it is normal to see fine lines emerge and for skin to sag. For patients seeking non-surgical rejuvenation options, Morpheus8 is an excellent option.
Leveraging the power of microneedling technology, Dr. Murrell uses Morpheus8 to create micro-injuries to the skin. Although these do not harm you, they trigger your body’s immune response. Part of this healing response includes enhanced collagen production, which tightens the skin around the treatment area and can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, sun spots, and discoloration.
What Is Morpheus8 Good For?
Morpheus8 is appropriate for addressing cosmetic skin concerns on the face, such as:
- Fine lines
- Acne scars
- Photodamage (sun spots)
- Age spots
This fractional lasering treatment resurfaces the skin with the power of radiofrequency. It is most commonly used on the lower face and neck. Morpheus Prime suits more delicate areas, such as the upper and lower eyelids. Therefore, it can be a good alternative for patients looking for non-surgical eyelid surgery.
What Exactly Does Morpheus8 Do?
Morpheus8 works by remodeling the adipose tissue of the dermal layer. This means that it reaches beyond the surface level of the skin, offering more comprehensive skin renewal through collagen stimulation.
Morpheus8 is the only FDA-approved treatment that combines radiofrequency with microneedling. By reaching approximately 4mm deep, Morpheus8 offers extensive skin remodeling to promote effective tightening and toning of the treatment area.
How Many Treatments of Morpheus8 Will I Need?
Both Morpheus Prime and Morpheus8 are typically performed across three to four sessions spaced four weeks apart from one another. Dr. Murrell will discuss your unique treatment goals and develop a personalized plan.
How Often Can You Do Morpheus8?
Treatments are spaced four weeks apart to ensure the skin has ample time to heal between sessions. Results last between one and three years for most patients.
How Painful Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 and Morpheus Prime create invisible punctures to the skin, but patients do not feel pain during treatment thanks to topical or local anesthesia. Most patients describe a prickling sensation during treatment that may be uncomfortable but is not intolerable.
Most patients with injected lidocaine do not find treatment painful, though repeated RF microneedling treatments can cause some resultant skin irritation. Rest assured that Dr. Murrell and our team will be with you every step of the way to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during treatment and your recovery.
