Boston Microneedling

What is Microneedling?

As a minimally invasive procedure, Morpheus8 RF Microneedling involves doctors placing small needles into the skin to create micro-lesions that stimulate the body’s natural healing response. These needles also release radiofrequency (RF) energy into the subdermal areas, which trigger collagen and elastin production.

Doctors sometimes talk about this process as “collagen induction therapy,” where gentler treatments can produce great outcomes by creating channels of stimulating collagen in the skin. For instance, breaking up pigmentation below the skin can affect the look of the surface skin area.

While Morpheus8 RF Microneedling is helpful in smoothing out wrinkles and dealing with the effects of aging, it is also instrumental in dealing with residual scarring from acne. Morpheus8 RF Microneedling helps with acne’s visual damage to the skin pores by creating a smoother texture. It also mitigates some of the pitting and rough texture from past breakouts. For acne scarring, doctors will look at the incidence of both raised and depressed scarring to see if microneedling will be an effective treatment to reduce irregularities.

In addition, Morpheus8 RF Microneedling can be used to combat a condition called “hypopigmentation.” Hypopigmentation refers to a lightening of the skin in certain areas. By creating micro-lesions in the skin and turbocharging the area’s regenerative properties, Morpheus8 establishes the building blocks for younger-looking, healthier skin; this often means skin that more closely resembles your natural skin tone than at the hypopigmented areas.

Is Microneedling Right For Me?

Morpheus8 RF Microneedling is a popular type of treatment for individuals who have had acne at a younger age and have residual acne scarring on the face or areas of the body. It can also be an appropriate treatment for those who want to reduce or eliminate wrinkles.

Although doctors recommend that Morpheus8 RF Microneedling not be done with patients who have active acne, you can still get a preliminary consultation. After past acne has created scarring of the skin, Morpheus8 RF Microneedling can be an excellent solution for restoring areas of the face and body for a cleaner, clearer look.

Candidates for Morpheus8 RF Microneedling will typically have some kind of skin condition or texture that they want to change by firming up and smoothing areas of the skin or changing the condition of the skin pores themselves. Morpheus8 RF Microneedling is helpful for all skin types and skin tones and can also help deal with pigmentation issues. During your consultation for Microneedling Boston aesthetic experts at Clareo Centers will review your skin and help you find the appropriate treatment to resolve whatever issues you may have with your skin health.

The Microneedling Procedure

Prior to a Morpheus8 RF Microneedling procedure, we will answer all of your questions with a consultation session. Our doctors will go over the facts with you, including the risks and benefits of this procedure. You’ll learn more about why Morpheus8 RF Microneedling is such a popular treatment for acne scarring and how it may help you.

The actual Morpheus8 RF Microneedling procedure takes from 15 to 60 minutes on average. Although some patients elect a single session for Morpheus8 RF Microneedling, others will have multiple sessions spaced out over several weeks.

In a typical appointment for microneedling Boston patients will have the treatment area cleaned before our providers insert the needles and direct the RF energy. We may use numbing cream or other local anesthesia, depending on the setting of the equipment. We will typically conduct the Morpheus8 RF Microneedling procedure on a test spot of the skin before covering the rest of the area to be treated.

Recovery From Microneedling

As Morpheus8 RF Microneedling is minimally invasive and involves tiny needles, there is little to no recovery time for this treatment. Our Boston Microneedling patients can usually return to normal activity right away, although they should avoid the sun for a few days.

Some of the usual recovery side effects noticed in the first few days after Morpheus8 RF Microneedling include redness, itching, and minor swelling. These are normal and generally go away shortly after treatment.

Another aspect of Morpheus8 RF Microneedling recovery is choosing appropriate home care. Our Boston Microneedling specialists will advise you on what's right for your skin post-treatment, according to your medical history, allergies, and other factors.

One thing to keep in mind is that Morpheus8 RF Microneedling creates small channels in the skin that may create an opportunity for exfoliants and other products to work better in the short term, to hydrate and rejuvenate the skin.
