What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a combination treatment that uses microneedling and radiofrequency waves. Microneedling creates micro-injuries that boost your ability to produce collagen. RF energy heats deep tissue layers to promote skin tightening without damaging the surrounding tissue. Xage Medical Spa also offers the natural growth factors found in platelet-rich plasma during treatment. Your skin gradually fades acne scars over the following weeks and months.

Most people are good candidates for Morpheus8 as long as they have no active acne breakouts or lesions in the treatment area. Our specialists in Provo, UT create personalized plans based on your individual skin concerns. Anyone bothered by acne scars, wrinkles, sun damage, and age spots can benefit from our skin rejuvenation methods.

How skin rejuvenation works

Microneedling is completed in a comfortable treatment room with numbing cream if desired. Xage Medical Spa begins by making sure your skin is clean and dry. We then perform microneedling using a special handheld device. Tiny needles penetrate the skin while radiofrequency energy is delivered to the affected area. We apply the device evenly across the skin for the most uniform results.

Platelet-rich plasma is applied once microneedling has been completed. PRP is taken from a sample of your own blood taken at the beginning of your appointment. The blood is then transferred to our lab so we can separate the platelets and growth factors. Afterward, a knowledgeable member of our team can give you information about skin recovery at home.

Microneedling recovery and results

Xage Medical Spa works hard to ensure the Morpheus8 process is seamless and comfortable. However, you may experience mild side effects, like redness and swelling. We can offer simple tips for speeding recovery, including avoiding picking at any flaking skin. New collagen will affect your skin about 1 – 2 months after treatment that will fade acne scars and other issues. Try to schedule 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for the best outcomes.
