Morpheus8, a minimally invasive fractional treatment is on the rise. Both men and women are booking this treatment thanks to its visible results.
It is a great treatment for men to try, as it is effective at sculpting and toning areas including the jawline. Men are looking to have a tighter or leaner appearance and the Morpheus8 helps you achieve that. From being able to reverse sunspots, wrinkles, loose skin and more, Morpheus8 is becoming a staple treatment in men’s aesthetic grooming routine.
How does Morpheus8 work?
Morpheus8 activates the anti-ageing process by combining microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy to remodel and contour the face and body. How does it do this?
At the head of the innovative device, there is 24 coated microneedles. Not to worry – these microneedles are miniscule. These tiny needles stimulate the skins healing response to increase elastin and collagen production. Collagen and elastin are the building blocks to youthful looking skin.
Simultaneously, the radiofrequency energy heats the tissue under the skin which tightens the connective fibres and moulds the fat to lift and firm the contours.
What problem areas can Morpheus8 be used to treat?
With the amazing results Morpheus8 can give, we’re excited to say it can be used on a number of areas around the body. The Morpheus8 treatment is most often used on sagging or wrinkled skin of the face and neck. However, it can also be used to treat enlarged pores, skin discolouration, stretch marks and acne scars. In addition, the treatment is also beneficial for tightening loose skin on the thighs, stomach and above the knees. A full list of areas that can be treated include:
