In this article, you will read about post-treatment tips which are approved by dermatologists, so you can better benefit from the Morpheus 8 treatment.

Cleansing and moisturizing after Morpheus 8

To help the skin heal and make more collagen after a Morpheus 8 treatment, it is important to gently wash it and keep it wet. Dermatologists say that to get rid of dirt and oil without drying out the skin, you should use a light wash with no scent and a thick lotion. Scrubs, exfoliants, and cleaning brushes that are too rough on the skin can cause inflammation. Use a soothing lotion with ceramides, glycerin, and hyaluronic acid to hydrate without clogging pores after washing your face. Stay away from thick, heavy lotions that may slow down skin renewal. If your skin becomes more dry, red, or sensitive, you should see a dermatologist to get a personalized treatment plan.

Protecting your skin from sun exposure after Morpheus 8

It is very important to use sunscreen after Morpheus 8 treatment to keep your face healthy. Dermatologists say to stay out of the sun for the first few weeks because it can slow down or hurt the healing process. Always use an SPF 30 broad-spectrum sunscreen that is made from minerals. Put on more sunscreen every two hours or more often if you swim or sweat. During the hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., don’t go outside. Instead, wear sunglasses, a wide-brimmed hat, and clothes that are open and light. Sit under a beach umbrella or tree if there isn’t any shade. Talk to a physician about how to protect yourself from the sun and how much time you should spend in it.

Managing redness, swelling, and peeling after Morpheus 8

As the skin heals and grows back naturally after the Morpheus 8 treatment, it may peel, swell, and turn red. Redness and swelling are the most common side effects, which can be helped by ice packs or cold clothes. Over a few days, the stratum corneum may peel off, revealing healthy skin cells underneath. This may cause some flaking or peeling. Use a chemical cleanser and a lotion without scent twice a week to lessen these effects. If your symptoms get worse, you should see a dermatologist for skin treatments, over-the-counter pain relievers, or changes to how you take care of yourself at home. As the skin heals, these bad effects should go away in 5 to 10 days.

When to follow up with your dermatologist

After Morpheus 8, you need to make sure you keep your follow-up meetings with your dermatologist to see how your skin is improving. Most doctors suggest that you see them again a week or two after treatment to find any problems quickly and give you personalized advice, however, the Morpheus 8 treatment usually takes around 3 sessions. They might take pictures to keep track of your growth and suggest more treatments or make plans for changes. It is suggested that you go every three to six months or as needed to keep an eye on the long-term effects and keep your face healthy.
