Introduction to Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive skin and tissue treatment offered by Dr. Nikolov in his Beverly Hills office. This is the first and only full-body fractional technology for subdermal adipose remodeling (SARDS). Despite being applied externally, it offers the deepest fractional technology, allowing a physician or aesthetic provider to target deep layers of a patient’s skin and remodel collagen.

Dr. Nikolov is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon located in Beverly Hills, using only the finest skin treatments in the world. The advancements of Morpheus8 have done wonders for patients, as it can heal and enhance the appearance of the skin.

What is Morpheus8?

More simply understood, Morpheus8 is a cutting-edge treatment developed to be more effective than other types of micro-needling treatments. Morpheus8 is the only device that combines radiofrequency with the micro-needling technique. On its own, micro-needling provokes a healing response in which collagen proliferation increases. With Morpheus8, collagen increase is only the icing on the cake. By inserting radiofrequency energy into tissue approximately 4mm deep, this device prompts tissue remodeling that includes thickening and tightening of the skin.

What are the Benefits of Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is an excellent solution for facial rejuvenation because it can achieve multiple revisions simultaneously. Collagen production is the main component of this treatment. When you can increase the amount of collagen in the deepest layers of the skin, the superficial layer of the skin will also improve. Benefits of Morpheus8 include:

  • Increase collagen production
  • Diminish fine lines and wrinkles
  • Youthful looking results
  • Lifts and tightens loose skin
  • Minimizes acne scarring
  • Fades stretch marks

What’s the First Step?

The first step to getting Morpheus8 in Beverly Hills is to schedule a consultation. After a decision on what works best for you, Dr. Nikolov will instruct you on how to prepare and answer any questions about Morhpeus8 to ensure that you know all of the benefits and risks of the procedure. Upon consultation, we follow a process that determines what treatment is required based on the patient’s needs and specific skin variety. Although Morpheus8 follows a parallel pattern in all cases, minor changes in technique can be implemented in specific situations for specific types of treatment. After consultation with Dr. Nikolov, there will be instructions that you’ll need to follow for the best outcome. These instructions are planned out and personalized to fit each of our Beverly Hills patients.

To prepare for your treatment, you should discontinue blood-thinning medications and stop using chemical exfoliants that may irritate the skin.

What to Expect on the Day of Morpheus8

Dr. Nikolovs appointments in Beverly Hills for Morpheus8 usually take under an hour to complete; this varies with each patient. With the ease of such modern technology, these techniques for treatment are very relaxed. Dr. Nikolov will go over what he believes will work best for you, and if necessary, but may request the use of a topical numbing cream or local anesthetic to ensure your comfort.

After the topical numbing cream has desensitized the skin, Dr. Nikolov will begin treatment using a small handheld applicator device. The tip of the applicator has several tiny needles that are powered with radiofrequency via the device platform. The applicator will be placed against the skin for a few seconds while energy is inserted through the needles. The applicator is then removed from the surface and placed onto the adjacent area. The motion is somewhat like a patterned pressing technique rather than moving the applicator across the skin, and some say is very relaxing.

Who are the Best Candidates for Morpheus8?

Wondering if you’re a good candidate for getting Morpheus8 in Beverly Hills with Dr. Nikolov? If you’re someone that wants to refresh and renew their skin, you could be the perfect candidate for this treatment.

Morpheus8 Recovery

This non-invasive cutting-edge technology makes the recovery process generally straightforward. Occasionally, you will see a mild redness and swelling, but this is very natural after Morpheus8 Due to the micro-needling, the skin may be slightly sensitive for a few days. Generally, patients are encouraged to refrain from wearing makeup for 1 to 2 days post-treatment. Downtime after Morpheus8 varies from 2 days to 2 weeks; this alters on different skin types. Some redness and small scabs will form in the area treated; this is natural.
