What is The Cost of Morpheus8?
The cost of a Morpheus8 non-surgical facelift is dependent upon variables including how many treatments you will need, which areas of the face and/or neck are going to be treated, and if you are coupling it with another procedure. However, the morpheus8 treatment cost is far less than a surgical facelift, with significant results and affordable for most patients.
Most basic Morpheus Facelift packages are around $4,999.
Recovery Period Following Morpheus8?
The recovery period following a Morpheous8 procedure is 3-5 days to allow swelling and some minor redness to subside.
How Long Does it Take to Perform Morpheus8?
The brow, upper lids, lower lids, face, and neck can be fully treated in under one hour.
What is Morpheus8?
The Morpheus8 is a fractional Radiofrequency device that uses silicone-coated needles to lift and tighten fat and support tissues of the face, neck, and body. The Morpheus8 is a new and innovative industry-leading technology that is used to lift, tighten, contour, and smoothen soft tissue skin laxity and irregularity. The Morpheus8 has many applications and one of which is the non-surgical neck-lift, facelift, blepharoplasty, and brow-lift.
Am I a Good Candidate for Morpheus8?
Candidates for Morpheus8 are those who are bothered by facial aging signs such as mild jowls, sagging on the cheeks, neck or lower eyelids, facial lines, and small deposits of fat on the face and neck. Morpheus8 also manages acne scarring, stretch marks, and sun damage, including enlarged pores and poor skin texture. Morpheus8 also works well on loose skin, stretch marks, and wrinkles on the body.
Ideal for Dark Skin Tones
Morpheus8 is good for darker skin types with less risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, with no thermal damage to skin types I-VI.
Because the Morpheus8 results in a significant remodeling and tightening of the deeper facial tissue as well as the skin, the results can last several years.
Excellent Way to Enhance Facelifts
The morpheus8 micro-needling is an excellent way to improve upon the appearance of a facelift procedure or blepharoplasty, especially when you begin to show the signs of inevitable recurrent aging.
Non-Surgical Facelift Alternative
The Morpheus8 Lift is a non-surgical, non-incisional, revolutionary industry-leading face, neck, lid and brow tightening and lifting device.
Morpheus8 Risks & Complications
There are always risks with any medical procedure, but the Morpheus8 treatment, with its high-tech internal thermal feedback and silicone-coated needles, make any substantial risks less than with other popular resurfacing lasers and devices. However, there is always the rare risk of:
- Scars and pigment issues: These would be discussed at the time of your consultation and minimized with the parameters and settings unique to your skin.
- Swelling: Any redness and swelling will subside after 5-7 days.
- Bruising: Bruising after your treatment should be expected, though it will subside after 2-4 days.
Why The Toronto Plastic Surgeons?
Dr. Mulholland, the founder of the Toronto Plastic Surgeons, was one of the innovators and developers of the Morpheus Lift. His clinic and staff have more experience than anyone else in Canada and have the most comprehensive array of ancillary and adjunctive technologies to ensure the best possible facelift result. Dr. Bell is also an extensively experienced plastic surgeon and has performed more than 3,000 facial procedures throughout his extensive career.
How is a Morpheus8 Treatment Performed?
The Morpheus8 handpiece delivers 24 monopolar, silicone-coated electrode-probe like needles beneath the skin and into the superficial fat. A specific and proprietary pulse of radiofrequency electrical energy is then delivered, which coagulates (tightens) the subdermal adipose and, importantly, shortens the horizontal, oblique and vertical connections to the skin, the fibrous septal network (FSN).
This action of FSN contraction provides a significant tightening of the soft tissue, reducing overlying wrinkles, scars, irregular texture, pores and even stretch marks and acne scars. The silicone-coated needles protect the skin from any thermal injury.
The electrical energy then flows up the needle along the FSN to the negatively charged triangular-shaped electrodes on the skin, that surround the probes-needles. This delivers a non-ablative and significant direct heating of the dermis and epidermis, stimulating new collagen, elastin and ground substances, further tightening the soft tissue.
Preparing for a Morpheus8 Treatment
Before your first consultation, we highly suggest patients go over their treatment goals and desired outcomes. We ask that you bring a list of current medications or supplements you may take.
What to Expect Post Morpheus8 Treatment
With the single treatment Morpheus8 facelift, patients should expect to take 5 to 7 days off due to swelling and some minor redness. There is no significant crusting, weeping or oozing, as is common with intense ablative lasers. Morpheus8 patients who opt for the more moderate energy, 3-treatment protocols should take one day off for each treatment. This is ideally suited for a Saturday intervention appointment.
Is Getting a Morpheus8 Painful?
The Morpheus8 non-surgical facelift is made comfortable with a topical anesthetic cream and the use of nitrous oxide or “laughing gas.”
The addition of topical anesthetic cream makes the 3-treatment protocol very comfortable. For those patients undergoing the more assertive single treatment protocol, injectable mesotherapy delivered lidocaine is injected under the skin, while using the laughing gas, before the Morpheus8 to obliterate any discomfort or pain.
How Long Will the Results of a Morpheus8 Procedure Last?
Because the Morpheus8 results in a significant remodeling tightening of the deeper facial tissue as well as the skin, the results can last several years. Some simple, non-surgical treatments can help protect your investment as you age, such as Forma and Fractional RF/laser treatments.
