FAQ – Morpheus8
Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the skin. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks will reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process. This is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen and fat. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime. This treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.
