The Best Morpheus8 Aftercare Instructions

Morpheus8 is a new skincare treatment that can treat acne scars, boost collagen, minimize sebaceous glands and so much more. Suitable for all skin tones and skin types, Morpheus8 is a great way to get clear skin and improve its overall health. While it’s a non-invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency energy and microneedling techniques to target problem areas, there are still things you should avoid for the first few days or weeks after your treatment.

So what should you do during the recovery period from Morpheus8? In general, all you need to do is keep the treatment area clean and hydrated with your normal skincare products while also avoiding direct sun exposure. If anything else needs to be taken into consideration during your recovery, your doctor should let you know about the additional steps. Meanwhile, below are the most common aftercare instructions after a Morpheus8 treatment.

How to Care For Your Skin After A Morpheus8 Treatment

When undergoing a Morpheus8 procedure, you may see some redness, swelling, or bruising around the treatment area days after treatment. This is due to the RF energy your skin has to receive and endure. 

However, these things shouldn’t last for more than a couple weeks at most. To ensure that your skin heals property after the treatment and doesn’t cause any adverse reactions, you should consult your dermatologist on the dos and don’ts after your procedure. 

While all aftercare practices for Morpheus8 is the same for every person, your doctor may prescribe a few extra steps depending on your skin type. Here are the basic aftercare instructions for people who undergo Morpheus8 procedures to address a range of skin concerns they have:

1) Wear a high-SPF sunscreen and avoid intentional skin tanning

Morpheus8 is generally a safe procedure, but it can cause slight but manageable skin irritation. While the initial redness after the treatment is normal, you may want to avoid skin irritants until your skin has the time to fully heal. 

One of the most damaging things right after your treatment is exposure to direct sunlight. When you have sun exposure without sunscreen, it’s likely that the UV rays will damage your skin and leave the Morpheus8 treatment ineffective. 

With your skin condition quite sensitive due to the radiofrequency microneedling, sun damage may not only leave the treatment ineffective but also cause long-term damage. To avoid this from happening, it’s advisable that you wear a broad-spectrum and a high-SPF sunscreen for the first couple of days after your treatment. 

2) Avoid makeup post-procedure

Though makeup isn’t known to cause the same skin damage as sun exposure, it’s possible that wearing it too soon after your treatment could cause an infection. From the bacteria found on many makeup products and makeup brushes, applying it directly to your face isn’t advisable, especially in your skin’s current state. 

While the bacteria from your makeup and brushes are usually harmless, the applied heat and radiofrequency during the Morpheus8 treatment heightens your skin’s sensitivity, which could cause an allergic or adverse reaction in turn. 

A few days after your treatment, you should be able to wear makeup as you normally would. However, it’s good to sanitize and disinfect your makeup brushes before using them to apply any product to your skin.

3) Use a gentle face wash

After the Morpheus8 treatment, keeping your skin clean is a key step in ensuring that your skin heals properly. Using a gentle face wash or cleanser free of any harsh chemicals will allow you to have clean skin without causing irritation. 

It’s also important to only use lukewarm water when washing your face. Using either extremely hot or extremely cold water may be harmful to your skin. 

4) Modify your skincare regimen

In addition to washing your face, you may want to avoid harsh chemicals from your normal skincare regimen. If you’re unsure about any product, it would be best to skip it for now to avoid possible irritation or other abnormal reactions. 

At the very least, you should use a gentle moisturizer around the treatment area. The moisturizer will help protect your skin barrier during your days of healing after your treatment.

Taking note of these steps and abiding by your doctor’s instructions is the best way to ensure that your skin heals properly and you get the results you want. 

If you’re still experiencing redness, swelling, or bruising weeks after your treatment, it’s advisable for you to seek the help of medical professionals immediately. 

Things to Do Before Your Morpheus8 Treatment To Prevent Complications

Prior to your treatment, there are some things that you should avoid as they may interfere with the treatment and overall healing process. A week before your treatment, it’s advised that you stop taking any blood-thinning medication as this may cause internal bleeding during the procedure. 

You should also refrain from using topical agents like retinol, vitamin C, and other skincare products with acids that could cause skin irritation. Lastly, you should avoid natural sun exposure or artificial tanning activities. 

With Morpheus8 directly applying heat to your skin, people with damaged or sunburned skin won’t be allowed to partake in the treatment as it may cause irritation and further damage.
