Morpheus8: Pre And Post Treatment Instructions

Morpheus8, by InMode offered at Seaport Medspa is a medical aesthetic device that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to improve the appearance and texture of the skin.

It's a non-surgical treatment that can target various skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, uneven skin tone, and sagging skin. The Morpheus8 device consists of tiny, ultra-fine needles that penetrate the skin and deliver RF energy at specific depths. This combination of microneedling and RF energy stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential proteins for maintaining youthful and firm skin.

Before receiving your Morpheus8 treatment at Seaport Medspa it is important that you review and follow the below pre and post treatment instructions.
