Resurface, tighten, and contour with versatile Morpheus8 RF microneedling system in Bend, OR

Microneedling generally produces microscopic channels within the skin. This process triggers the production of new, firming collagen. Radiofrequency energy (or radiowaves) produces controlled heating. This process, too, stimulates fresh collagen to soften folds, tighten saggy skin, and correct other signs of aging and sun damage. The Morpheus8 system by InMode combines both microneedling and RF therapies to get powerful results across all skin types and a range of conditions, and in a non-invasive manner. At EsthetixMD Spa & Laser Center, we are excited to offer this innovative “hybrid” treatment to our patients in the Bend, OR area.

Highly customized treatment 

Many of the benefits associated with the Morpheus8 have to do with our ability to customize all aspects of treatment. For instance, we can select the Morpheus8 handpiece for smaller treatment areas, such as under the eyes and along the jawline. 

Additionally, we can tailor the types of needles used to deliver the RF energy to the treatment site, based on your skin type, the area to be treated, and the depth at which the RF penetrates the skin. Depending on the needle that is chosen, treatment can provide controlled, therapeutic heating superficially, intermediately, or deeply. For these reasons, Morpheus8 treatment is safe for patients with Skin Type I (very fair, never tans) to Skin Type VI (very dark, always tans). Darker-skinned patients avoid the risks of post-treatment dark or light spots associated with earlier-generation light-based and resurfacing techniques.

Likewise, due to our ability to tailor treatment to your needs and characteristics, Morpheus8 is ideal for treating both surface imperfections (such as hyperpigmentation) and laxity, which originates deep in tissues. A few of the conditions that are ideal for this form of RF microneedling include: 

  • Scars (i.e., from past acne outbreaks)
  • Fine lines 
  • Wrinkles 
  • Leathery texture
  • Uneven tone 

Patients with active acne are not candidates for treatment. The process can spread bacteria that produce outbreaks.

What to expect

Treatments are quick, not invasive, and generally well tolerated with numbing topicals or Pro-Nox Nitrous Oxide. We also control the settings for your utmost comfort. You may feel mild pressure or dull discomfort as the applicator delivers RF energy. Due to the design of the Morpheus8 technology, treatment of the face can be completed quickly – in around 15 to 20 minutes. It is not uncommon to experience some redness, itching, and swelling. These side effects typically resolve in around one to three days. 

This is a true “no-downtime” procedure. We may recommend specialized skin care, as medical-grade products penetrate deeply into the skin due to the needles’ creation of micro-channels. As with many other aesthetic procedures, it is critical to avoid excessive sun exposure and to protect your skin from UVA-UVB light after treatment. 

While every patient is different, generally, it takes a series of three treatments spaced about four to six weeks apart to get the results that you desire. Since the system triggers beneficial processes deep within the skin, it can take three months to see full results – though our patients think it is well worth the wait! Also, they often see a noticeable improvement to lines and scars within a few days, with improved skin tightness and contouring revealing itself around three weeks post-procedure. 

Results are long-lasting; all that is needed to sustain stunning improvement is annual “touch-up” treatments. And, of course, take great care of your skin and face to prevent sun damage and to reset the clock on the aging process.
