There is an unwritten rule in the world of aesthetics: if Kim Kardashian is doing it, people will be interested. Such is the case of In Morpheus8 Modea minimally invasive treatment that Kardashian recently posted about on her Instagram Stories.
“This is a game changer! I did the Morpheus laser to tighten my stomach,” Kardashian captioned a photo of her bare abs and tagged the famous Los Angeles-based plastic surgeon. Ashkan Ghavami, MD. He added, “I think this is my favorite laser, but it’s painful lol, but it’s worth it!”
If you were intrigued by the star’s new “favorite treatment,” you weren’t alone. Searches for the treatment skyrocketed after the publication, though Dr Ghavami says there remains quite a bit of apprehension. “Surprisingly, we have found that patients are a bit more cautious and do a lot more research before contacting us,” says the plastic surgeon. But, he says, “There is no trick here. [Kardashian] He trusts our recommendations and treatments so much that he decided to film himself doing Morpheus8 in our office without us knowing that he took photos during his session. She felt so good about the results of Morpheus8 in our office that she was honest with her followers and she decided to share her experience”.
Do you want to know more about skin tightening treatment? We spoke with Dr. Ghavami himself, as well as a New York City dermatologist Michelle Henry, MDto find out everything you need to know about InMode Morpheus8 prior to booking.
What is InMode Morpheus8?
As mentioned above, Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive treatment that combines microneedles Y radio frequency (RF). It contours and tones both the face and body, creates a softer, smoother appearance, and best of all, it’s safe for all skin tones.
“Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production in the underlying layers of the dermis,” explains Dr. Henry. “By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the tissues of the face and body can be reshaped to reveal a more radiant, youthful appearance.”
The microneedling component adds to the effectiveness of treatment and healing. “Because there are micropins that penetrate the skin, it creates micro-injuries that heal faster than traditional skin rejuvenation methods,” adds Dr. Henry. And unlike other skin treatments that affect only the upper layers of the dermis, Morpheus8 “treats wrinkles to fat based on depth and energy level,” explains Henry, adding that “Morpheus8 Body is specifically designed to larger and deeper tissue treatments.
What are the benefits?
In short, the treatment “stimulates collagen production and renews the skin to reveal a more youthful appearance,” explains Dr. Henry. And while Kardashian uses the treatment to tighten her abs, it’s especially popular because it can address multiple areas and concerns at once, says Dr. Ghavami: “I’ve found that Morpheus8 has helped with textural issues, minimizing pore size, tightening and lifting the skin, and even softening the tone and color in some patients.” It can even be used for skin problems like acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and stretch marks.
Here’s the key: it’s designed with two handpieces and four fractional tips with different pin configurations that give it more functionality for different body parts. There’s Morpheus8 for smaller treatment areas (think jawline, nasolabial folds, around the eyes, and arms) and Morpheus8 Body for larger body areas like the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. Your doctor will determine which one is right for you, based on what you want to address.
How long does it take to see results?
Expect to see results fairly quickly. “This specific treatment is especially popular because most patients see a visible difference with just one treatment, while other treatments may require a series of three to six treatments to see visible improvement,” says Dr. Ghavami. Even better, he says, “downtime is also minimal, with less than a day or two for most [people].”
Dr. Henry agrees, saying “Visible results can be seen within a few days, but usually after three weeks the most noticeable results appear.” In addition, “improvements continue up to three months after treatment.” That said, the effects are not permanent; Annual visits are recommended to maintain results.
Are there any side effects?
Kim K may have called the treatment “painful,” but compared to other treatments, Morpheus8 has relatively few side effects when done correctly. “Nesthetic creams or injections are used when appropriate,” says Dr. Henry. “With numbing cream, it’s generally tolerable with moderate energies, but it can be a little uncomfortable depending on your tolerance. With anesthetic injections, even the highest energies are tolerated very well”, says the dermatologist.
After treatment, you may see some redness and/or swelling, as well as small spots or scabs where the needles entered the skin.
How much is it?
With so many benefits, Morpheus8 doesn’t come cheap: It ranges from $1,000 to $3,000 per treatment, depending on the treatment area, where you are located, and the practitioner you see. And again, don’t forget to budget for yearly treatments to maintain results. Looking for a provider? You may find a recommendation for a doctor on the official InMode website.
