Multiple passes with the Morpheus8 device will be performed at various depths at each treatment area in order to achieve optimal results. After treatment, the skin will be slightly tender and red and will subside quickly as you heal. Patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use an adequate sunscreen every day. Downtime is minimal. Makeup can be applied 2 days after treatment.
