Microneedling is a unique facial procedure that relies on your body’s own ability to repair itself. Microneedling is used to jump-start the body’s natural healing process (and increase collagen production), which encourages it to produce new, healthier layers of skin. This can be a great option for anyone who would like to improve the appearance of their skin while avoiding harsh chemicals or requiring more invasive facelift surgery.
There are a few different ways to use microneedling (including some at-home variations); however, microneedling is most effective (and safe) when performed by a licensed skin professional.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a facial rejuvenation procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. By creating these micro punctures, the body is encouraged to increase the production of new collagen and skin cells.
When used on the face, microneedling can be used to:
- Lighten acne or trauma scarring
- Smooth wrinkles and fine lines
- Reduce pores and improve skin texture
- Correct hyperpigmentation or discoloration
Microneedling is primarily used on the face; however, it can benefit many areas on the body and can be repeated to improve results.
How Does Morpheus8 Radiofrequency Microneedling Work?
Morpheus8 by InMode is an innovative microneedling technology that takes the potential results of traditional microneedling up a level.
Like traditional methods, Morpheus8 uses a handheld device to create micro punctures in the skin using specially designed needles. The difference between these two techniques is that Morpheus8 also uses these needles to emit radiofrequency energy into the skin layers, causing the skin to heat and tighten. This added heat promotes the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid at a much greater level than traditional microneedling.
The Morpheus8 treatment allows for more dramatic results at a much faster rate and may reduce the need for follow-up sessions.
Morpheus8 can be used virtually anywhere on the body, including the face, arms, neck, and hands that experience skin issues or cellulite.
Morpheus8 can help to:
- Improve the appearance of cellulite
- Reduce dark spots and pore size
- Treat stretch marks
- Reduce signs of aging
Morpheus8 offers significant results with little to no downtime and is safe for a variety of skin tones.
