Pre/After Care instractions
To be on the safer side of minimizing any bruising risks it would be best to avoid aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, herbal supplements, vitamin E, and Fish Oil at least one week prior to your treatment day if permitted.
It is recommended any use of retinol products, topical antibiotics, exfoliants etc are avoided 48 hours before your Morpheus8 treatment.
We also recommend avoiding sun exposure or tanning (including tanning beds and self-tanning products) for a minimum of 24 hours before the treatment.
Men: Please shave the area to be treated. Long and dense hairs prevent electrode contact with the skin’s surface.
Post care instruction
Use a soothing cleanser or face wash with lukewarm water to cleanse the face and gently pat dry the treated skin until it heals. Always make sure that your hands are clean when touching the treated area.
Use Aquaphor or a healing ointment(Hyaluronic Acid) up to 48 hrs after treatment.
Use a gentle moisturizer 48 hours after treatment until the skin heals or Spas Medical Approved Moisturizers.
Can be applied 2 days after the treatment. Clean makeup brushes prior to use.
At 24 hours after the procedure, you should apply a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with an SPF30, AT ALL TIMES when you will be outside. Use a physical sunscreen (Zinc/Titanium Dioxide) daily. Do not use chemical sunscreens.

What to avoid
For at least 7 days post-treatment, do NOT use any Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydroxy Acid, Retinol (Vitamin A), Vitamin C (in a low pH formula), or anything perceived as ‘active’ skincare.
Avoid intentional and direct sunlight for at least 24 hours. No tanning beds.
