Make Your Face Look More Youthfully Plump & Naturally Tighter
Staying youthful looking as you age doesn’t have to be a dream nor does it mean that you have to go under the knife to maintain your youthful appearance. There’s a new tool you should add to your anti-aging arsenal – Morpheus8. It is one of the most advanced ablative radio frequency treatments available today to treat advanced crepey, lax skin.
Morpheus8 combines the power of micro-needling and RF (radio frequency) to penetrate deeper into the skin than any other microneedling device allowing it to stimulate collagen production to truly contour and transform different parts of the body. The result – a smoother and sleeker appearance. The Morpheus 8 doesn’t just address superficial tissue; it directs energy toward the adipose fat that is notorious for creating jowls, bra rolls, and more.
Morpheus8 is a new subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) that fractionally remodels and contours the face and body. It is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks will reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process.
It penetrates deep into the skin and fat to morph the aging face into a more desired smooth and sleek appearance for all skin tones. In fact, Morpheus8 penetrates deeper into the skin than any other microneedling device going as deep as 4mm. But just because it penetrates deeper doesn’t mean it’s an uncomfortable treatment. Patient comfort is actually a major advantage of this device. The sharper needles and tiny punctures are done in the skin without any tugging or pulling.
The most common areas are lower face and neck but any area that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal can be treated with Morpheus8. Areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment.
Microneedling with RF is the next generation of microneedling. Regular microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy, or CIT) is the concept of using tiny needles to penetrate the skin, creating very small channels of which the body heals by laying down new collagen. Microneedling with RF adds radiofrequency-generated heat to the skin, which allows the treatment to tighten the skin and contour undesired fat.
The Morpheus8 treatment is FDA approved as a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD). This means that at its most powerful settings, Morpheus8 can sculpt or remodel the fat under the skin. At less deep settings, Morpheus8 treatment can also improve the texture of the skin, providing smoothing, tightening, and improvement of scars and dilated pores.
Morpheus8 treatment helps improve and reduce the appearance of:
Treatments are generally 15-20 minutes after numbing, which takes 20-25 minutes. While you can resume normal daily activities immediately after treatment, some patients experience slight redness that can be easily covered up by makeup.
Visible results can be seen after only a few days. More noticeable results typically take a couple of months and full results require about six months as collagen production can be a fairly slow process.
If you want conservative improvement in your skin, you may only need a single treatment. For best results, we recommend 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. This gives our patients maximum antiaging and skin rejuvenation results. If you have acne scarring or stretchmarks you are looking to treat, you may require 4-6 treatments to get you ideal results. Every patient is different and during your consultation we’ll be able to outline a course of treatment based on your individual anatomy, health history and aesthetic needs.
