Three Things to Avoid After Morpheus8™ Treatment
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is one of the hottest aesthetic treatments available today, helping patients to dramatically boost the health and radiance of their skin from the inside out. At Infinity Medical Aesthetics & Wellness in Kalispell, MT, Dr. Shane Hill and our experienced team of skin rejuvenation experts perform RF microneedling with the revolutionary Morpheus8™ system for remarkable, long-lasting results that keep your skin looking and feeling its best over time. For optimal healing and results, it is important to understand what to do – and, perhaps more importantly, what not to do – following your Morpheus8 microneedling treatment, which you’ll learn more about here.
How does microneedling help your skin?
RF microneedling offers an exciting number of benefits, helping to improve a wide range of skin concerns and conditions with a single treatment. These include:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Skin laxity
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven skin tone
- Acne scarring
- Dry or oily skin
- Scaly skin
- Rough skin
How does Morpheus8 microneedling work?
The Morpheus8 microneedling system combines the benefits of microneedling with RF energy for a more complete transformation and results that continue to improve over time. The treatment itself involves rolling the Morpheus8 handpiece, equipped with a series of fine-gauge needles, over the skin’s surface. This creates pinpoint injuries, which trigger the body’s healing and regenerative responses. RF energy is delivered to the skin simultaneously, which stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin, helping to boost the treatment’s efficacy and encourage firmer, tighter, more youthful-looking skin over the next several weeks and months.
Dos and don’ts after RF microneedling
Almost immediately after treatment, patients should expect their skin to be mildly red, swollen, and irritated – somewhat similar to the symptoms of a sunburn. After about 2 – 3 days, the micro-injuries will begin to scab over and flake away. Over the next several weeks, patients will notice an improved skin tone, texture, and overall appearance as the effects of treatment become apparent. To ensure the best possible results, as well as the most efficient healing and recovery process, it is critical to avoid these three things:
- Picking your skin: It can be tempting to pick or scratch at your skin as the tiny scabs begin to heal and flake away, but this can result in delayed healing and even scarring.
- Sun exposure: Direct sunlight, tanning, and other UV exposure can also delay the healing process and increase your skin’s sensitivity, which may also lead to skin damage and discomfort.
- Harsh skin care products: Retinols, Vitamin C, exfoliants, and other skin care products can be damaging to your skin as it heals from a microneedling treatment.
Additionally, our knowledgeable team will discuss some other behaviors and products – such as anti-inflammatory use and strenuous physical exercise – that may be off-limits following a Morpheus8 treatment.
With healthy habits and adherence to post-treatment instructions, you’ll be able to enjoy smoother, more radiant, more youthful-looking skin sooner than you think.
