Morpheus8: Revolutionizing Acne Treatment


Acne is a common skin concern that can be challenging to manage. Traditional treatments vary in effectiveness and can have significant side effects. This brings us to Morpheus8, a cutting-edge technology that has shown promising results in acne treatment. When combined with a comprehensive skin treatment plan, Morpheus8 is beneficial in the treatment of acute acne and acne scarring. 

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a cutting edge minimally invasive treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. It works by penetrating deep into the skin and fat, remodeling and contouring the face and body.

How Does Morpheus8 Treat Acne?

Deep Skin Penetration

Morpheus8’s microneedles penetrate the skin at a depth of 4 – 8 mm, delivering radio-frequency energy deep into the dermis. This action heats the underlying layers, encouraging the production of collagen and elastin.

Sebum Reduction

The RF energy can reduce the size of sebaceous glands, leading to decreased oil production. Excess oil is a major contributor to acne formation, so this reduction can significantly improve acne symptoms.

Scar Treatment

Morpheus8 effectively treats acne scars. The stimulation of collagen and elastin helps in smoothing out the skin surface, reducing the appearance of pitted acne scars.

Benefits of Morpheus8 for Acne Treatment 

  1. Minimally Invasive: Unlike some aggressive treatments, Morpheus8 is less invasive, with minimal downtime.
  2. Safe for All Skin Types: Its technology is safe for all skin types, reducing the risk of hyperpigmentation.
  3. Improves Skin Texture: Aside from treating active acne, it enhances overall skin texture and tone.
  4. Long-Lasting Results: Results from Morpheus8 can be long-lasting, especially with proper skincare post-treatment.

The Treatment Process 

  1. Consultation: Consultation with our Physician with a special interest and training in Dermatology is essential. They will assess your skin to ensure you’re a good candidate for Morpheus8.
  2. Procedure: The treatment typically takes about an hour. Anesthesia or numbing cream is used to minimize discomfort.
  3. Recovery: Some redness and swelling may occur but typically subside within a few days.

Potential Side Effects

Like any cosmetic procedure, Morpheus8 has potential side effects, including temporary redness, swelling, and a low risk of scarring or infection. By choosing Pacific Plastic Surgery Group, you are choosing qualified and experienced professionals, thereby minimizing these risks.

Morpheus8 offers a novel and effective way to treat acne, particularly for those who have not found success with traditional treatments. Its ability to reduce sebum production, coupled with the benefits of skin rejuvenation, makes it an appealing option.
