Morpheus8 in Miami

Introduction to Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is a highly versatile and advanced system that can be used to treat a wide variety of issues including general skin quality, skin laxity, fine and medium depth lines, scarring, small accumulations of fat, and more. Dr. Zhuravsky is proud to offer the Morpheus8 treatments to his patients in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Aventura, and the surrounding areas.

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a safe and effective way of delivering fractionated radiofrequency energy into the skin itself as well as into the deeper layers below. The energy is delivered through a set of tiny (micro) needles that rapidly penetrate the skin with each pulse. Depending on the tip that is used, energy level, depth of penetration, and manner of application, the device can be used to resurface the top layer of skin, promote collagen formation, tighten the skin, destroy fat cells, and even inhibit sweat glands. This leads to tighter, healthier, smoother, and more even-toned skin.

One of the more controversial aspects of this treatment is that it can make the recipient look gaunt or “hollowed out”, however, this is nothing to be concerned about when your treatment is performed by a trained professional like Dr. Z.

Morpheus8 can be used in a variety of ways, but here are some of the more popular applications:

  • Improving skin tone and texture
  • Reduces excess areas like jowls and nasolabial folds (also known as “laugh lines”)
  • Resurfacing to improve fines lines and wrinkles, especially those around the eyes and mouth (smoker’s lines and smile lines)
  • Treating those difficult horizontal necklace lines
  • Tightening skin, especially around the lower face and neck
  • Tightening and ablating fat under the chin (double chin)
  • Treating surgical and acne scars

The treatment can be focused on a small area of concern or applied to the entire face and neck.

Who are the Best Candidates for Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 can be used on all skin types and so the exclusions are very limited. As seen from the various applications of this system, it is something that many patients can benefit from one way or another. Most of the morpheus8 patients in our practice are either focusing on stubborn wrinkles that cannot be treated with fillers or botox, improving the quality of the skin (especially the neck), or treating acne scars. Dr. Zhuravsky thoroughly evaluates each patient to give them realistic expectations and determine if this will be beneficial for their concerns.

What’s the First Step?

The first step in getting Morpheus8 in Miami is to contact us and schedule your consultation. When you come in for your appointment, you will meet with Dr. Z and he will examine your skin. You will be able to ask any questions you have, express your desires for the treatment, and get his expert opinion. Dr. Z will also ask you about your medical history, so it’s important to be open and honest when discussing this with him to avoid any unnecessary risks. After he collects the information he needs, Dr. Z will create your treatment plan and if you agree with it, you will be able to have your first session performed after your consultation, or if you need to reschedule for any reason, our Patient Coordinator will be able to help you with that.

What to Expect on the Day of Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive procedure that is quickly and simply performed in the office. A high-grade numbing ointment is applied to the target area and allowed to sit for 30 – 60 minutes. The areas are then cleansed and Dr. Zhuravsky begins the treatment. Patients are also given the option of using our Nitronox system during the procedure. The device handpiece is pressed against the skin as it very rapidly delivers radiofrequency through its array of microneedles. This is repeated until the target area is fully treated to the desired extent. A very thin layer of a light ointment is applied and patients can go home.

Morpheus8 Recovery

The downtime after Morpheus8 is very minimal, ranging from 1 to 4 days, and depends on the type of treatment performed. In most cases, there is a notable redness during the first 1-2 days, similar to that of a sunburn, but this fades quickly over the next few days. There may also be some mild peeling / dry skin that is more often experienced with the superficial resurfacing type treatments.

Patients are asked to avoid any harsh cleansers or ointments during the first few days. We encourage patients to wash the treated area with either tepid water and/or a gentle wash like Cerave.

Patients are also asked to use a mild moisturizer that can be as simple as plain Aquaphor, or other topicals with hyaluronic acid, ceramides, etc …. However, AVOID any topicals that contain the following:

  • Retinol
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C
  • Alpha Hydroxy Acids
  • Beta Hydroxy Acids
  • Salicylic Acids
  • Glycolic acid
  • Other similar products encourage skin shedding or turnover

If in doubt, bring your moisturizer in for Dr. Z to evaluate and approve. Also AVOID exercise, excess sun exposure, and swimming for 48 hours following treatment. Makeup can be applied after 48-72 hours, depending on the extent of treatment.
