Specific structural components sustain youthful skin. So, it is vital to analyze the underlying structural components to delay or repair the indications of aging.
At Krystle M Collins, Nurse Practioner and Family Health, we provide treatments that have been shown to penetrate down beneath the epidermis, where the skin’s foundation is located.
Morpheus8 is one of the most innovative skin tightening and toning techniques. We are pleased to provide this technology to patients interested in non-invasive facial rejuvenation.
See how it can help you can the best glowing skin you deserve through this post!
What Exactly is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 combines microneedling and radiofrequency technologies to stimulate collagen formation through fractional resurfacing. By working on the deeper parts of the skin, the building blocks will naturally move back into place.
This process does little to no damage to the dermis and makes the skin look very even. A device with needles is used in this treatment to make tiny channels in the skin.
The needles both send out RF energy at the same time. Micro-damage caused by the hands makes the skin make things that help it heal and fix itself quickly. Over time, it will also help your body produce more collagen.
This protein builds the skin’s support structure, making it more firm and compact. Also, the therapy helps eliminate skin spots with uneven colors, like acne scars and hyperpigmentation.
RF radiation also speeds up the production of collagen. It can get deeper into the skin than regular microneedling, which helps collagen grow in the dermal layers. The skin gets more support, firmness, and fullness from this.
How It Works?
Microneedling is a dermapen process that employs tiny needles to puncture the skin to develop new collagen and tissue for smoother, firmer, and more toned skin. Morpheus8 functions similarly to a microneedling device. In addition to puncturing the skin, it employs radiofrequency, stimulating collagen and elastin formation at a deeper level than microneedling can achieve.
The 24 coated needles penetrate the subcutaneous tissue, coagulating fat and compressing connective tissue to tighten and revitalize the treated area. As for the procedure, after applying a topical anesthetic to the patient’s treatment region, the portable device is forced into the room, allowing the microneedles to puncture the skin.
Once inserted, the pins transmit radiofrequency (RF) waves. The heat from these waves penetrates the dermal layer of skin, tightening the skin and subcutaneous fat beneath. The entire surgery, including anesthesia and preparations, takes less than two hours.
The Morpheus8 therapy provides consistent results for all skin types without causing dermal thermal damage. Additionally, cutting-edge technology decreases the likelihood of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, a side effect of specific resurfacing treatments.
What are The Advantages of RF Energy?
The deep layers of the skin are heated in a controlled manner using radiofrequency energy to rejuvenate the collagen.
This treatment enhances the complexion and texture of the skin for a more youthful and radiant appearance. The bonus part is you can use Morpheus8, and PRP can be coupled for optimum results.
Why Morpheus8 is Better Than The Others?
The secret lies in the combination of RF and microneedling. Microneedling generates the channels that allow radiofrequency energy to penetrate the deepest layers of the skin. And when RF can reach these deeper levels, the skin is genuinely reshaped and contoured.
What Are The Targets of Morpheus8?
The most popular target location for Morpheus8 may be the jowls, jawline, and submental region of the neck (the space below the chin). However, you can also use it to tighten skin above the knees and on the belly.
Additionally, it can diminish the appearance of acne and acne scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles. Morpheus8 can successfully correct the following:
- Loose or sagging facial, jaw, neck, and body skin
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Under eyes sagging skin and wrinkles
- Acne Fissures
- Stretch markings
- Stretchmarks on the Arms, Knees, and Abdomen
How Soon To See The Results?
Most patients require three to six treatments to achieve optimal outcomes. After a few weeks, you will begin to see benefits, with maximum results occurring between three and six months later.
The formation of new collagen requires time, so benefits do not occur immediately. Still, because they utilize your body’s collagen, they can endure for at least a year. We suggest annual maintenance treatments to keep your results looking their best.
Is There Downtime Associated with RF Microneedling?
You will have minimal downtime and can immediately resume your tasks. UV damage will lessen your results, so wear sun protection and avoid the sun. At the same time, your skin recovers and keeps a consistent sun protection practice. For a few days, you should avoid using solid cleansers and creams.
The Ideal Candidate For Morpheus8
The majority of individuals can receive RF microneedling. But good candidates exhibit mild to moderate indications of aging and have fair treatment outcomes expectations. You may not be suitable if you are pregnant, have a skin illness, or have recently used specific acne treatments.
Who Can Use Morpheus8?
The advantage of Morpheus8’s color-blind technology is its compatibility with all skin types. You can treat darker tones with minimal danger of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is typical with other resurfacing techniques.
Morpheus8 vs. Other Treatments
Again, Morpheus8 is unlike any microneedling procedure we have previously observed. A basic
microneedling treatment involves moving a small needle-covered applicator across the skin.
Microneedles can be programmed to travel vertically to “stamp” the epidermis when the handpiece passes over it. The depth of the needles on the applicator is approximately 2 mm.
A technician may administer a nourishing serum, such as a platelet-rich plasma or a vitamin mixture, after microneedling to address a specific issue. Morpheus8 is easily distinguishable because of its needles’ 4mm depth.
This is significant because it stimulates change inside the foundational structure of the skin. Radiofrequency, the energy that gently heats subdermal adipose tissue for more thorough tightness and toning, provides additional benefits.
