Instagram isn’t the only medium that’s buzzing about the new Morpheus 8 laser treatment. Perhaps your social circle is too. It seems that this revolutionary skin procedure that, to be honest gives us The Matrix vibes, is the way forward in the anti-aging beautysphere. To find out exactly why the Morpheus 8 is the hottest new laser treatment, we sat down with Ms. Deborah Alessi, CEO and founder of Beverly Hills Wellness and Aesthetics Clinic located in Five Palm Jumeirah, Dubai.

In chatting with Ms. Alessi, one thing is very apparent. Morpheus 8 is extremely popular because it quickly produces visible skin tightening results to rejuvenate the texture and tone of skin. The state-of-the-art technology behind this laser treatment is responsible for the noticeable changes seen in skin. Ms. Alessi tells us that “Morpheus 8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the skin. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks will reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process.

“Morpheus 8 session is a deep skin treatment done with numbing cream to avoid any discomfort experience. It is a 30-45 minute procedure with fast needles entering the skin and emitting high radio frequency heat waves to repair cell collagen and tighten the skin.”

After the procedure, the recovery process takes around one week for the skin to fully heal. Typically, clients experience redness, irritation, and swelling in the first couple days after treatment. “Results can be seen within a few days, but typically after three weeks the most noticeable improvements are apparent. The positive changes in the skin continue up to three months after the treatment. While the Morpheus 8 results are not permanent, they are visible for a long period of time. Usually, it is recommended to do the treatment once every three or six months depending on the client’s skin type to get the best results.”We were curious to know how many Morpheus 8 treatments are necessary to get the best results. Ms. Alessi shared that “Depending on the skin type and the Morpheus 8 treatment regime, our clients can expect between one to three sessions. To further enhance results, the Morpheus 8 laser can be used in the same treatment session with other procedures like the Hollywood Mini Face Lift or a few days after other treatments.”
