Morpheus 8 is one of the hottest new non-surgical treatments on the market, highly sought after by Hollywood stars. It promises to keep you looking young for years to come, effectively reducing signs of ageing to leave your face and body looking more youthful and naturally tighter.
This cutting-edge, minimally-invasive treatment is the perfect antidote to ageing, sagging skin on the face, neck and body, working to dissolve fat and tighten the skin simultaneously with unparalleled results.
Morpheus8 takes microneedling technology to the next level, using finer microneedles that go deeper into the skin than ever before. This means the treatment is able to stimulate new collagen formulation more effectively; rejuvenating your skin from within. In addition, a high radio frequency is transmitted via these microneedles, delivering electric current into the deeper layers of skin to kickstart this collagen production, firming & tightening the treatment area.
Dr Edris Farahbod, aesthetic doctor at Beverly Hills Wellness and Aesthetics says “Morpheus8 is more than just a microneedling device. Our latest and greatest full-body, non-surgical, anti-aging tool stimulates a serious skin-tightening process thanks to the addition of radiofrequency. This advanced microneedling treatment – the first and only full-body subdermal adipose remodelling device (it targets the deflation of soft tissue, like an aging jowl) – has incredible benefits!”
Why is Morpheus8 so popular?
It combines micro-needling and radiofrequency, producing collagen and elastin for tighter, more youthful-looking skin. It can also have a plumping effect, improving your skin texture and tighter pores and improving pitted scars. Morpheus8 is popular as a body treatment, too, with celebrities such as Kim Kardashian opting to have it as a stomach tightening and toning treatment.
Morpheus8 has seen a surge in popularity in the last few years to treat jowls too, which we’ve all become more aware of after staring at ourselves on Zoom.
How does Morpheus8 work?
Morpheus8 injects radiofrequency energy into the skin via tiny needles. The handheld device is pressed into the area, allowing the nano microneedles to penetrate the skin. Once the pins are in place, they emit radiofrequency (RF) waves. The heat from these waves gets deep into the dermal skin layer, tightening the skin and fat below. Both radiofrequency and microneedling are collagen-stimulating, but they work in different ways. Combining them supercharges them both. Microneedling creates a micro-trauma in the skin, creating a healing response, while radiofrequency uses heat to shrink-wrap and tighten the skin.
Morpheus8 has minimal downtime, and the results continue to improve post-treatment. The treatment time generally takes around 30 minutes (plus an additional 30-45 mins for numbing cream).
Where can you have Morpheus8?
It can be performed on the face, neck and body. The treatment has multiple benefits and uses and can be used to treat lines and wrinkles, loss of volume and facial fat, it can add volume to the mid-face, it can help tighten loose skin and jowls, contour the jawline, smooth and lift the skin on the neck, tighten skin on the stomach, legs and arms, and it can even be used to help with acne scarring, stretch marks and enlarged pores.
Does Morpheus8 hurt?
Although Morpheus8 uses needles, it’s not usually painful. Any discomfort that is often very tolerable. Numbing cream is applied to make the treatment more comfortable.
Are there any risks involved?
The procedure can cause some temporary redness, swelling, and bruising. There is a small risk of infection or scarring. The results of the treatment may not be immediately visible; it can take weeks or even months for your skin to show significant improvement; however, most people see results within a few days.
Morpheus8 is available at Beverly Hills Wellness & Aesthetics at FIVE Palm Jumeirah. From 3400dhs per treatment.
