Does it hurt, and is there any downtime?
There is typically no downtime associated with Morpheus8 microneedling treatments – you can return to your regular activities the same day as your treatment. The area being treated is numbed with a pre-treatment topical anesthetic to increase your comfort, and the procedure itself is relatively painless.
Some patients experience minor pinprick bleeding immediately after treatment, but the micro-injuries are so tiny that they heal rapidly. You can expect your skin to feel a bit sunburned and swollen for up to a week while the healing process takes place. A high-quality moisturizing cream and sunscreen are recommended as part of your post-treatment care.
