Morpheus 8/Fractora Pre & Post Treatment Instructions

Pre-treatment Recommendations

▪ Advise the patient to avoid skin irritation or intentional skin tanning. Sunscreen is

advisable when outdoors during daylight hours

▪ Some patients with history of hyper pigmentation or at higher risk,  should be treated gradually by

bleaching products 6 weeks prior treatment and stop at least 48 hours prior

Morpheus8 treatment to minimize risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

▪ Prophylactic antiviral therapy should be prescribed for patients with history of

cold sores (Herpes Simplex) when treating around the mouth.

▪ Stop anticoagulants 7-10 days prior to treatment, if medically permitted.


Treatment Schedule

The number of treatment sessions depends on the individual patient and treatment

aggressiveness and may vary from 1-5 sessions. Treatments are typically repeated

every 3-6 weeks.


Post-treatment Recommendations

After each treatment session, the physician should advise the patient on proper care.

▪ Cool the treatment area for 10-20 min.

▪ Emollient cream or occlusive dressing could be applied to the treatment area.

▪ Alternatively, prophylactic antibiotic treatment may be prescribed for 1-3 days

post treatment. Patient is to contact the physician if there is any indication of

infection, excessive swelling, redness, undue pain, or any other unusual or

untoward symptom.

▪ Tiny scabs may appear after 1-3 days and stay for several days following the

treatment. The scabs should not be touched or scratched even if they itch and

should be allowed to flake off naturally.

▪ Blisters may be treated with a prescribed antibiotic ointment or burn treatment

cream as per physician’s discretion.

▪ During the first two days following treatment the treatment area should be kept

clean to avoid contamination or infection; any mechanical or thermal damage to

the area must be avoided.

▪ Prophylactic antiviral therapy should be continued for patients with history of

cold sores (Herpes Simplex) when treating around the mouth.

Moisturizer may be applied 24-72 hours after each treatment and then should be

applied regularly throughout the course of the treatment. 

Make-up may be applied only 24-72 hours after each treatment session. Generally, 24 hours after

treatment, patients may use regular soaps, but not scrub soaps or exfoliates.

▪ The patient should use a high-factor sunscreen (at least 30 SPF) and protect the

treated area from over-exposure to sunlight for at least one month after the

treatment, starting 24-72 hours post treatment. Excessive tanning of any sort

(sun exposure, tanning beds, and artificial tanning lotions) is not allowed in the

treated areas during the entire course of the treatment.
