How to Treat Acne Scars with Morpheus8

Having to face life with acne is bad enough. Having to live the rest of your life with acne scars can be humiliating and devastating. It makes a person self-conscious, no matter how attractive the face is.

We spend hours trying to diminish and disguise old acne scars, yet still don’t feel comfortable getting up close to others for fear they will see through.

Acne Primary Causes

Acne scarring can be the product of a variety of causes. Some scarring comes from inflammation, such as cysts and nodules, which tend to penetrate deep into the skin. The longer a person has inflammatory acne, the greater the risk of scarring. Those who spent time picking, squeezing, or popping acne did not realize that those activities actually increase inflammation and therefore scarring. When breakouts penetrate the skin on a deeper layer, the tissue beneath the skin gets damaged. During the healing process, your body produces collagen, which is the perfect skin support. But if the body produces too much or too little, a scar will form.

Depressed Acne Scars

If the body produces too little collagen, the skin will have a tendency to form pits as the healing takes place.

Raised Acne Scars

When the body produces too much collagen, it tries to heal the underlying tissue, which turns into a raised acne scar. Some people’s skins are more prone to scarring based on genetics, skin type, and home care. But take heart, there is a magic bullet called Morpheus8 that will have an amazing and long-lasting result.

The Long & Short of Other Treatments

Although there are several methods that are touted as being perfect solutions to reducing or eliminating facial scars, most treatments don’t work on deep scars. Some aestheticians suggest natural remedies, such as black seed oil, rosehip oil, honey, and aloe vera, which can provide minimal results. Others suggest using special resurfacing scar gel to minimize the appearance of post-acne scars. The Mayo Clinic suggests using sunscreen to limit the contrast between unscarred skin and a scar. Soft fillers can plump the skin to make the scars less noticeable, but the results are temporary. Chemical peels were often the treatment du jour, but again success depends on the amount and depth of the acne scars.

The Benefits of Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is such an innovative modality. it is being used for several hard-to-fix skin issues. Medium to deep acne scars can be successfully treated, and although some skin may require more than one treatment, the results are long-lasting. The benefits of having Morpheus8 treatments far outweigh the cost. Check it out:

  • Increased collagen and elastin formation
  • Improved skin cell turnover
  • General skin texture is smoothed
  • Skin will feel and look tighter
  • Fades stretch marks
  • Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves again around the eyes, mouth, and forehead

How Morpheus8 Treatments Work

This FDA-approved treatment is performed with a handheld device that uses dermal microneedling and simultaneously emits radio-frequency technology (RF). The needles actually create micro-injuries which prompt natural tissue regeneration, while the RF heat encourages collagen production.

The device also includes a multi-pulse burst mode which involves automatic delivery to up to three different tissue layers all during the same single cycle. The manufacturer InMode describes it like this, “When activated, the needles are deployed into the tissue, and when retracted, the needles are stopped every 2 mm in subdermal space, and RF energy is delivered.

In our words, Morpheus8 is a fantastic treatment for current or prior acne sufferers.

What to Expect During the Treatments

For starters, our Lebae AnyWhere Experts come to your home, which makes it convenient, private, and totally comfortable. We will quickly set up while you get relaxed and prepped.
The sessions always start with a numbing cream that takes effect within about 30-45 minutes. The actual treatment takes less than an hour and is surprisingly non-invasive. You may experience mild bruising, swelling, or reddish skin immediately after the treatment. Most clients return to work or their daily activities the very next day.
We recommend avoiding sun exposure for a few hours post-procedure. Your skin will be sensitive for a few days, so avoid scrubbing and applying makeup for the first 24-48 hours. Be gentle and you will be able to resume your normal skin care routine after 2-3 days.

The Best Part!

We love Morpheus8 because it is a longer-term skincare solution. It’s called the nonsurgical facelift for a good reason. Once you complete your treatments, your skin will continue to age – but from a brand new baseline! Other treatments can also improve acne scarring, but the results are more temporary.
