We’re talking about radiofrequency microneedling with Morpheus8, and it could work for you. To find out for sure, contact Dr. Harbison and the team at Omaha Face Plastic Surgery & Medspa in Omaha, NE and schedule a consultation!
What Exactly Is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
Radiofrequency microneedling is similar to traditional microneedling, except more elements are added in order to address issues at a deeper level. Using the innovative Morpheus8 technology brought to you by InMode, radiofrequency microneedling inputs the element of radiofrequency energy into the procedure. The RF energy warms up the skin in the treatment area and causes the lower layers to constrict. It also speeds up the production of collagen.
How Much Does It Cost?
The specific price will depend on your needs and how many sessions you actually have. We can give you a better idea of this during a consultation.
How Many Sessions Are Needed?
Oftentimes, the best results are achieved after a series of treatment sessions. However, it all depends on the unique case, as each situation is unique and results vary from patient to patient. If the patient’s skin concern is relatively minor, then less treatments may be needed than if the problem is more severe. After one session has been completed, the patient will have to wait a set amount of time before undergoing another.
Preparing For RF Microneedling
Leading up to the procedure, it is generally recommended to avoid alcohol. You’ll also want to stay away from any non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication. Inform our professional if you are taking blood-thinning medication.
What to Expect After Treatment
Following your Morpheus8 treatment, you’re going to want to keep your face clean. Applying sunscreen is also a wise move. Our professional will make sure to provide instructions for you, so you won’t have to worry too much about aftercare.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Shortly after the session is complete, one might experience some swelling in the treatment area. Side effects such as this can be addressed immediately with ice packs. Any side effects tend to be relatively minor and should not cause any long-term problems.
