Let’s talk about Morpheus8

Morpheus8 has been our most popular treatment since opening NV and for good reason! Morpheus8 is a powerful treatment that can be used on virtually any part of your body. From the face to the labia, any tissue can be rejuvenated.

The science behind it is microneedling with radiofrequency. It shoots the radiofrequency deep into the tissue at different millimeter depths depending on your concern. These modalities help to shrink the tissue and stimulate a healing cascade where improvements can be seen up to 3 months post procedure! The final results are permanent. It also decreases fat, which is what makes it so great for the body. It improves wrinkles, skin laxity on face or body, cellulite, stretch marks, acne scars, surgical scars, stubborn pockets of fat, and active acne.

Three sessions are recommended, but you will see improvement with each session. Each session is approximately 90 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. You are numbed via a potent lidocaine cream and then, the microneedling commences.

Now let us talk about the controversial DOWNTIME. Depending on your concern, you may expect to have more downtime than others. For example, if you are treating severe skin laxity or the fat under your chin, you can expect to have some swelling for a week. The more intensive the treatment, the better results you can expect. Bruising, crusting, and gridmarks can also be seen. For the most part, you feel sunburned and tight.

Lastly, after care is very important for the remainder of your healing time. Remember, this is a medical skin treatment. The top layers of skin have been sloughed off, and your body is working diligently to replace those cells. We want your body to have all the nutrients available to it. We recommend a post treatment hyaluronic serum and a post-treatment cream. We also ask you not to drink alcohol before and after treatment as it can create more swelling, bruising, and poor results. You want to take vitamins and eat a diet high in biotin/collagen. Lastly, we recommend you wear a strong SPF as your skin is healing.
