The aging process causes the skin to lose its firm, supple quality and begin to sag and wrinkle. The basic cause for this is the loss of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin and soft tissue. While there are a number of skincare creams, injectable treatments, and other procedures that can be helpful in turning back the clock, Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling is acknowledged as one of many effective methods of rejuvenation available.
Morpheus RF Microneedling Aftercare
There is minimal downtime to worry about after your RF microneedling treatment. You may see small, pinpoint dark scabs a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to one week. You may also experience some swelling and bruising, although this is usually short in duration. You can expect to return to your usual routine and activities the following day but may want to keep the skin unoccluded without makeup for the first 1-3 days to let the skin heal. The skin can become sensitive after a treatment like this and it is best to use moisturizers without any chemicals or fragrances for the first 1-3 days. You will want to avoid exercising for the first 48 hours after this procedure to avoid sweat and dirt from clogging the pores and to avoid acne breakouts.
Be sure to keep the treatment area or areas well moisturized, and avoid direct sun exposure and heat. Use sunscreen daily.
