About the Procedure
What is it?
Morpheus 8 is a microneedling treatment that utilizes radiofrequency energy for collagen formation remodeling. When performed vaginally, this treatment is referred to as Morpheus 8V.
Who is a good candidate?
Many laser treatments are not safe for patients with darker skin – because the laser frequency is absorbed by the pigment in the skin and can cause burning. But the Morpheus8 V uses soothing radiofrequency and heat energy making it safe for all skin types and tones – even darker skin colors.
How is the treatment done?
A vaginal rejuvenation from Morpheus 8V delivers controlled pulses of radiofrequency energy deep into the vagina and labia to tighten the soft tissue and stimulate the production of elastin and collagen. The result is increased lubrication and renewed thickness, strength, and tone in the vaginal walls and labia, which results in vaginal tightening and more comfort with intimacy.
Morpheus8 radiofrequency was originally FDA approved for tightening and remodeling of the face. However, its amazing skin resurfacing abilities were quickly shown to be highly effective at restoring a youthful appearance to the labia.
Morpheus8 V utilizes a “Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device” (SARD) which is able to remodel the labia on a deep, cellular level. Through Morpheus8 V, our Englewood, Patients can safely obtain a smoother, smaller, and younger-looking labia without the need for labiaplasty surgery.
The technology behind the Morpheus8 Designer Vagina treatment is the same that is used to perform radiofrequency microneedling, a procedure often referred to as the “non-surgical facelift.” Thanks to its unparalleled ability to lift, tighten and contour the skin, Morpheus8 Radiofrequency treatment is somewhat like a “facelift” for the labia.
Why do the procedure/benefits?
Radiofrequency energy is all around us, but employed in this procedure it induces collagen formation remodeling, which causes tightening, thickening and rejuvenation of the vaginal and vulvar tissue.
Microneedling has been used on the face and body for years to induce collagen formation in the skin. Tiny, sterile needles create microinjuries to the tissue, and the body responds by producing more collagen and elastin.
The vagina and vulva are then softer, more elastic, and intercourse is far more comfortable and pleasurable.The tightening action of Morpheus8 V strengthens the anterior vaginal wall, which in turn lifts the bladder and urethra. This results in dramatic improvement in urinary incontinence.
How long to see results?
Typically, Morpheus 8V vaginal rejuvenation patients will experience a dramatic improvement in their symptoms after a single treatment. Depending on the type and severity of symptoms, up to 3 treatments may be optimal
How long is recovery? What does it look like? (Bruising, swelling, etc.)
Because Morpheus 8V vaginal rejuvenation uses non-ablative radiofrequency, the skin stays intact for much faster healing. As a result, there is not the downtime and associated risks of other laser vaginal rejuvenation treatments.
Patients can drive themselves home after their Morpheus8 V vaginal rejuvenation treatments and resume their daily activities. The only restrictions are that patients should avoid intercourse, tampons, and hot tubs or baths for 3 to 4 days following treatment.
How often do you have to receive maintenance touch-ups?
The results of Morpheus 8 V vaginal rejuvenation can last 18 months or longer. And a single yearly “touch up” treatment can help maintain the amazing results for years to come.
