Sweater weather is here, and if you’re anything like us, you’ll agree that this is the absolute BEST time of year. . . although your armpits may have another take on the situation. While we love a cute, cozy sweater moment. . . the pit stains that accompany them are no more welcome than a pumpkin spice latte with expired milk. That’s why we’re here to dish all the deets on Morpheus8® and how it’ll rid you of those overactive underarm sweat glands for good!
What is Morpheus8? – If you’re reading this blog, you likely (unfortunately) know what hyperhidrosis is, but know this – the sweaty pits that accompany it don’t stand a chance to Morpheus8! Morpheus8 is a powerful combination of microneedling and radiofrequency that targets the sweat glands in the underarms, palms of the hands and soles of the feet – causing them to stop producing sweat, for good! This revolutionary treatment does this with a one-two punch, where the microneedling steps up to create micro-damage to the deeper layers of the skin, while the radiofrequency energy delivered directly to these sweat-prone areas instantly deactivates the sweat glands, leaving you with dry underarms and the confidence of knowing you can now rock those cozy fall sweaters, worry-free! But don’t you NEED to sweat? Now that your underarms won’t be sweating, it’s natural to wonder how your body will rid itself of toxins via sweat post-treatment. Each one of us was born with approximately 2-4 million sweat glands throughout our bodies and our underarms only contain about 2% of those glands. That means post-Morpheus8, your body is still sweating, just in those less obvious places that you prefer!
What’s the Pain Involved? – On to the golden question, “But, what kind of pain am I in for?” That’s the great thing about this treatment, it is non-invasive and considered very tolerable, especially when compared with hyperhidrosis surgery. Any discomfort is mild in nature, and we are always sure to apply a topical numbing cream prior to treatment to ensure optimal comfort for our patients. Post treatment, you may experience mild tingling, redness, and slight swelling, all of which usually dissipates within a few days. Most patients require two to three treatments spaced four weeks apart, and voila! You’re ready to enjoy all of those cute fall outfits you’d otherwise been avoiding!
What Else Does It Treat? – Not only does Morpheus8 work to treat the embarrassing signs of hyperhidrosis, but it also tightens, lifts, contours, and resurfaces skin and even treats stretch marks and active acne! Who needs to take on the extensive downtime and risk of cosmetic surgeries when you can get incredible results fast from Morpheus8? In the same way it treats hyperhidrosis, Morpheus8 stimulates the production of collagen in the skin, to tighten and smooth wrinkles on the face and body and also promote smooth, supple, healthy skin to combat acne, stretch marks and sun damage from the past. Best part is that you’ll see results immediately and they are long-lasting, so you don’t need to worry about waiting months to heal from surgery, you’ll be glowing and ready to show off your results in no time!
