Procedure Technique

First, an anesthetic ointment is applied and allowed to take effect, the laser treatment is performed. Morpheus 8 laser skin resurfacing is offered at our Metairie practice on an outpatient basis. Morpheus8 is a deep fractional radiofrequency treatment that delivers exceptional skin, tissue, and collagen remodeling to improve skin appearance and reduce irregularities. The application is precise and accurate as it manages the skin layer by layer. This method is effective in skin regeneration because the removed skin is replaced by new tissue growth. It also stimulates collagen development, which is an important factor when it comes to healthy skin. When used on fine wrinkles or other skin irregularities, the increased growth of collagen renders a more supple, younger-looking appearance. A session may take up to 2 hours depending on the patient’s skin conditions.

During/After the Procedure

There may be pain during treatment, so local anesthesia can be used to minimize the patient’s discomfort. The doctor may also prescribe the patient a pain reliever after the procedure. The face may be bandaged after treatment. Since the epidermis is peeled away, the skin may appear red for several weeks. As it heals, crusting may be present. It is very important to follow the doctor’s advice on skin care to prevent any scarring. It may take a few days before the patient can resume normal activities. It may also be beneficial to use an extra pillow when sleeping to ease any discomfort.

Expected Cost

The average price ranges from $300 to $3,900. Additional costs include medications, doctor and facility fees, or any additional treatments needed. Insurance companies rarely cover any treatment that is cosmetic in nature. If the total cost is more than expected, it may be worthwhile to check other financing options the clinic may offer.
