Understanding the Durability of Morpheus8 Results


Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive procedure that improves the overall look and feel of one’s skin.

This treatment combines radiofrequency energy with microneedling technology to stimulate collagen production and new skin cells. In turn, this helps remodel and improve skin by treating a variety of concerns, such as:

  • Wrinkles
  • Acne and surgical scars
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Stretch marks
  • Skin tightness, and elasticity

Morpheus8 can treat the face, neck, and (or) multiple body areas, such as your legs, chest, abdomen, buttocks, and back. 

There are several benefits of Morpheus8 treatments. If you’re considering undergoing this procedure, then continue reading to learn aftercare instructions that will help you achieve maximum results post-procedure.

Achieving the Full Results of Morpheus8

Avoid Sun Exposure

Protecting your skin following treatment is essential to achieve the best results of Morpheus8. It’s recommended that you avoid direct sun exposure and UV radiation for at least one week following treatment. Sun exposure can increase the risk of pigmentation issues and slow down the healing process.

When you go outside, be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or above.

Gentle Cleansing

Use a mild, non-abrasive cleanser to clean your skin gently. Avoid harsh exfoliants or scrubs for the first few days post-treatment.

Stay Hydrated

Staying well-hydrated is essential to the healing process. Be sure to drink plenty of water to make sure your skin stays hydrated.

Topical Creams

Your healthcare provider may recommend specific creams or serums to apply post-treatment. These usually help soothe and moisturize the skin. Follow your provider’s instructions appropriately to achieve maximum results.

Avoid Makeup

While it may not always be possible, it is highly recommended to avoid applying makeup to the treatment area for at least 24 hours following treatment.

Avoid Hot Showers and Baths

Hot water can irritate the skin, so stick to lukewarm water for baths and showers for a few days after the procedure.

Avoid Swimming Pools and Hot Tubs

Chlorine and other chemicals in pools and hot tubs can irritate the skin, so it’s best to avoid them for a few days.

Do Not Engage in Exercise or Physical Activity

Exercise or any activity that causes excessive sweating should be avoided for at least 24 hours to prevent irritation and infection.

Protect Your Skin

Be gentle with your skin and avoid any unnecessary friction or pressure. After washing your face, be sure to pat your skin dry instead of rubbing it with a towel.

Avoid Alcohol

Alcoholic beverages can dilate blood vessels and increase the risk of bruising. It’s important to refrain from drinking alcohol for at least 24 hours following treatment.

If you’re looking to improve the overall look and feel of your skin, then Morpheus8 may be right for you. You may start to see results from this treatment a few weeks after the procedure, but you will see your final result 6 months after your 3rd treatment.
