How Does Morpheus8™ Work?
- Posted on: Apr 26 2023
Are you looking to turn back the hands of time on your skin without the downtime associated with surgery? Well, you’re in luck! Long gone are the days when a facelift was the only procedure available to refresh and tighten your skin. Now, it’s easier than ever to regain your youth with non-surigical treatments.
At Azul® Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa, we use the unique working system of Morpheus8™ to offer you better-looking skin without the associated downtime that comes along with surgery. In this blog, you will find out everything there is to know about Morpheus8™ and how it works its magic on you and your skin.
What Is Morpheus8™, and How Does It Work?
For the past few years, microneedling has been used as a procedure to prevent aging and restore the tightness of the skin. Currently, microneedling is mostly used in conjunction with serums to help boost your skin’s regeneration power. However, Morpheus8™ takes this procedure up one notch.
Rather than just relying on the power of microneedling, Morpheus8™ is also combined with radiofrequency (RF), leading to a brighter, much healthier complexion. When used together, microneedling and radiofrequency can penetrate much deeper into the skin, increasing your elastin and collagen production.
Once the needles penetrate your skin, the radiofrequency waves will pass through the microchannels created by the needles and go deeper than the average needle would typically reach. The heat can restructure the dermal layers within your skin, reducing the sagging appearance. When looking at Morpheus8™ before and after pictures, you can see its efficiency in making the skin look firmer and smoother.
What Areas Work Best for Morpheus8™?
Morpheus8™ can be used on various areas of your body, but the most popular treatment sites are the jawline, jowls, and submental neck area (that region just below your chin)—in general, it’s those areas that need a little more skin tightening.
That being said, Morpheus8™ may also be used to treat areas such as your thighs, abdomen, and above the knees, tightening the loose skin. Since it also involves microneedling action, it can be used to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, acne scars, wrinkles, and enlarged pores.
Benefits of Morpheus8™ Treatments
Morpheus8™ comes with several benefits, such as:
1. Increased Elastin and Collagen Production
As you age, your skin begins to lose its ability to produce collagen and elastin. This process can be mitigated by creating tiny microchannels in your skin, either through RF therapy or microneedling. Morpheus8™ uses both, which means the process could be even more efficient than other regular treatments.
2. No Downtime
Most cosmetic procedures will require some to little downtime, or at least a break from work until the incisions heal. Morpheus8™ is a non-invasive procedure, meaning that there is no downtime involved with this particular treatment. Some patients may experience some redness and a bit of tenderness, which usually doesn’t feel any worse than a slight sunburn. We do advise that you do not perform any strenuous, sweat-inducing exercise or activities for the next 24 hours, but other than that, you can get back to your normal daily routine after the treatment.
3. Very Versatile
Morpheus8™ is an efficient and versatile treatment for various age-related skin conditions. It can tighten your skin, reduce your wrinkles, fade out your stretch marks, and even minimize your acne scars. It can also help if you are dealing with facial volume loss as this treatment offers healthy, natural-looking results.
4. Long-Lasting Results
Other cosmetic procedures last for a few months before needing to repeat the treatment. With Morpheus8™, you will be happy to know that you can enjoy the effects of this treatment for about one year, but with proper post-treatment care and a healthy, active lifestyle, the results may last even longer.
The Bottom Line
Morpheus8™ may be a great option for you to treat various skin conditions from sagging skin and wrinkles to stretch marks and more. If you want to correct multiple skin imperfections and reduce age-related conditions, give us a call and we’ll book you for a Morpheus8™ treatment!
