Cystic or Active Acne Treatments
Morpheus8 is an effective treatment option for cystic and active acne
Having acne is a struggle most people will face at some point in their life. While it’s not exactly hazardous to your physical health, active acne, and/or acne scars, will often take a toll on your confidence and self-image. You may be left wondering are there any treatment options available for cystic or active acne?
The answer is YES!
Morpheus8 is a newer treatment for acne that uses the latest radiofrequency microneedling technology to address acne concerns. While it’s more popular as an acne scar treatment, the radiofrequency used in the treatment can also address active acne breakouts at its root.
Acne can be caused by multiple things like dirt, dead skin, oil, and bacteria and if left untreated could become a chronic skin condition. To address these causes, radiofrequency is used by the Morpheus8 treatment to not only kill any bacteria on your skin surface but it will also reduce the size of your oil glands resulting in less oil production.
How does Morpheus8 treat cystic and active acne?
Unlike traditional microneedling, Morpheus8 combines the power of microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy, allowing for deeper skin penetration, reaching as deep as 4-5mm.
With deeper skin penetration and heat (RF), Morpheus8 has the ability to halt the acne-causing bacteria in its tracks. It not only eradicates this bacteria as it ablates the skin tissue, but it also targets and gradually shuts down the oil glands lying just beneath the skin’s surface. By doing so, it interferes with the entire process that triggers acne right from the start. When there’s no excess oil production for the acne-causing bacteria to feast on, the result is no inflammation and, therefore, no pimples.
How many treatments are recommended?
For best results, 3-4 treatments spaced out 4 to 6 weeks apart, although there is no upper limit on how many treatments you can have.
