Facial skin can look weathered and worn the older we get. A surgical facelift can give you tighter skin with fewer wrinkles, but the technique comes with downtime and leaves scars behind. Wouldn’t you prefer a non-surgical cosmetic technique that comes with zero downtime or scars? That treatment is called Morpheus8 and it’s available now at Moein Surgical Arts in Los Angeles, California.
What is Morpheus8 and How Does it Work?
Morpheus8 is one of the most advanced skin tightening and toning techniques ever developed. The technology offers facial rejuvenation without surgery or downtime. Nor does the method leave visible scars.
Morpheus8 is technically a microneedling treatment but is considered more effective than any other microneedle on the market. The treatment stimulates the remodeling of fatty tissue near the skin. Designed by Mode Aesthetics, a leader in radiofrequency technology, the cutting-edge service combines radiofrequency and microneedling for exemplary results.
By using microneedles on the face, Morpheus8 provokes a healing response on the facial skin. New collagen gets produced after the first treatment, but that’s only the start. When radiofrequency energy is added to the mix at a depth of 4mm, the handheld device causes tissue to become remodeled, whereby it begins to thicken and tighten.
The results leave the face smoother, and firmer, with fewer wrinkles or other signs of age.
What Facial Defects are Treated by Morpheus8?
The recent technology is effective at eradicating excess fat in the face and neck. For faces with mild-sagging and jowls, the treatment creates firmer cheeks and more even skin texture. Acne scars, deep lines, creases, and even sun damage can be made more aesthetically appealing after a single med-spa treatment. Morpheus8 is also effective for enlarged pores and stretch marks.
Is Morpheus8 Used Alone or in Combination with Other Cosmetic Treatments?
At Moein Surgical Arts, we recommend Morpheus8 for both stand-alone procedures and as a combination procedure. If you are not ready to commit to a facelift, Morpheus8 can give you tighter, glowing skin at a lower cost and with a faster recovery. Another bonus is that no general anesthesia or sedation is needed.
Morpheus8 can be combined with other procedures like Renuvion to obtain maximum skin tightening and improved skin texture.
Dr. Babak Moein recommends Morpheus8 at least once per year to maintain your amazing results. While this med-spa treatment cannot stop age, you can age gracefully and look great doing it with this innovative technology. Undergoing Morpheus8 may also alleviate the need for facial surgery in the future.
What Areas of the Body Can Morpheus8 be Used?
The skin rejuvenation technique is most effective on the face and neck areas. Dr. Moein also recommends the treatment for any areas where subdermal remodeling could be used to improve your appearance.
How is the Morpheus8 Treatment Performed?
Morpheus8 requires only a local anesthetic to decrease the sensation of both the radiofrequency energy penetration and microneedles. A numbing cream is typically used for this purpose. After the cream has been rendered effective, Dr. Moein uses a small handheld Morpheus8 applicator. The tip of the applicator is affixed with tiny needles that are powered by radiofrequency energy that originates from the base of the device. The applicator is placed against the skin for a few moments while energy is infused through the needles. Dr. Moein then removes the applicator before moving it to an adjacent area. The applicator is lightly stamped against the skin several times while the energy-inducing machine does its work.
This is the difference between Morpheus8 and other microneedling techniques. With other microneedle treatments, the device is moved across the skin, not stamped lightly like the Morpheus8. The needles themselves only reach a depth of around 2 mm while Morpheus8 goes up to 4mm deep. After the application of other microneedling treatments, the technician applies a nourishing serum or vitamin cream to address various skin concerns. Morpheus8 doesn’t require any serum because the collagen and radiofrequency energy are enough to stimulate collagen production and heat adipose tissue for more significant toning and tightening.
How Many Morpheus8 Treatments are Required?
Another benefit of undergoing Morpheus8 is that one session is often enough to stimulate the change required to deliver dramatic results. Depending on the level of improvement you desire, you may decide to opt for 2 to 4 treatments to achieve the desired outcome. Dr. Moein will conduct a thorough examination during the initial consultation to fully understand your needs and goals.
What is Recovery Like with Morpheus8?
Unlike other microneedling treatments and surgical facelifts, Morpheus8 delivers dramatic results with almost no downtime. You may experience some redness or swelling for around a day or two but not everyone does. Most patients are able to use makeup the following day after treatment. Your face may be sensitive for a day or two, so you may want to refrain from wearing makeup until the sensitivity issues subside.
