If you are looking for a non-surgical treatment to tighten and firm the skin on your face and neck, then our Austin Morpheus8 skin resurfacing could be perfect for you. Morpheus 8 is a non-invasive treatment that combines radio-frequency laser technology and microneedling to remodel the subdermal tissue to achieve younger, smoother, tighter skin. Our talented and caring surgeons, Nicole Basa, MD,  and Alan Abando, MD, bring this technology to Austin, and our team at B + A Medical Aesthetics can help you look years younger with this revolutionary treatment.

What areas of your skin can Morpheus 8 treat?

Your Morpheus 8 skin resurfacing treatment produces results in a single session, with the changes building with a series of procedures. Morpheus 8 is effective in treating skin issues such as both active cystic acne and acne scars as well as stretch marks across other body areas. 

This treatment can be used to address various challenging to treat areas to become firmer, tauter, and more resilient:

  • Lower eyelid
  • Upper eyelid
  • Smile lines
  • Cheeks
  • Mouth
  • Neck

Dr. Basa and Dr. Abando take a personalized, custom approach in every treatment. The first step is to meet with the doctors so they can evaluate your current skin condition and advise you of the procedure that will produce the best result for you. 

How does Morpheus 8 skin resurfacing work?

Morpheus8 has forever changed the aesthetics industry. A groundbreaking skin rejuvenation system, the treatment enhances your skin quality by combining two technologies: microneedling and radiofrequency skin tightening. As the device is passed gently over your skin’s surface, the fractional radio-frequency lasers emit energy to restore a smoother, evenly-toned texture. At the same time, the microneedles create tiny channels in your skin to stimulate natural collagen growth while firming and tightening your skin, with results that continue to improve following your treatment.

What is a Morpheus 8 skin resurfacing treatment like to experience?

The treatment is not painful to experience. Your skin is numbed with a topical cream before your procedure. The areas to be treated are then “stamped” with the device, with the tiny needles delivering RF energy into your skin structure. You will feel pressure, but the numbing cream makes it tolerable. If you are very sensitive, taking an OTC painkiller before your treatment may be advised.

What is the recovery time?

Your skin will appear reddened for several days. You must avoid sun exposure, and no exercise or makeup for 48 hours, as your skin heals. You will need to plan for three to five days for your skin to recover after the treatment, but the wait is well worth it. During the next weeks, your skin will continue to improve in thickness, smoothness, and quality, with lines and creases fading and your skin smoothing and firming as it regenerates.

Morpheus8 Microneedling Pre & Post Care

Pre Care 

  • Discontinue use of Tretinoin type products or Hydroquinone at least 7 days prior to treatment.
  • If you have a history of cold sores, begin prophylactic treatment with Valtrex or similar no later than 7 days prior to treatment. (Only if the face is being treated). 
  • Arrive at your appointment with clean skin. 

Post Care 

  • Do not take any anti-inflammatory medications for one week after the procedure. 
  • Do not use ice on your face, and avoid using arnica/bromelain. These may interfere with the natural inflammatory process that's critical for your skin rejuvenation. 
  • Avoid sun tanning and prolonged exposure to direct sunlight for at least 2 weeks. After 24 hours, always use sunblock (30 SPF or higher) and wear a hat if you're outside. 
  • Use a painkiller, such as Tylenol, if you experience any soreness.

Day 1-3 

A sunburn-like effect is normal. Your skin may feel tight, dry or sensitive to touch. Treat the skin gently by washing it with a gentle cleanser, cool water, and using only your hands to pat dry no earlier than 8 hours after treatment. Some redness may also be present and in some cases, patients may experience slight bruising that can last for 5-7 days and temporary swelling for 2-4 days.

Tips

  • Avoid strenuous exercises that cause sweating as well as jacuzzis, saunas, and steam baths for up to 48 hours. 
  • Use only minimal makeup after 24 hours. 
  • Sleep on your back with the head of the bed elevated to minimize swelling or pain as needed. 

Day 2-4 

Peeling may start 3-5 days after the treatment. You'll notice skin dryness and flaking which is due to an increased turnover of skin cells. DO NOT pick, scratch, or scrub at treated skin! 

Important Information: You must allow the old skin to flake off naturally and keep it moisturized at all times. 

We recommend using the Pre/Post Procedure Kit from Revision Skincare or DEJ Face from Revision Skincare. 

Day 5-7 

You may start your regular skincare products again, once your skin no longer feels irritated. Most of our patients have noticed continued skin improvement over the months following their treatment.
