A common aesthetic concern is the sagging, wrinkled skin that develops in various areas of the body as you age. Due to natural collagen and elastin loss, your skin loses its elasticity over time and can appear to sag downward. This can make a previously tight and toned figure appear less vital over time.
While you can exercise to lose weight, there’s little you can do on your own to address sagging skin. This is where Morpheus8 treatment comes in. Morpheus8 combines microneedling with radiofrequency technology to tighten the skin and create a more youthful, firmer figure.
The dedicated team at Orlando Dermatology offers Morpheus8 treatment for patients in Orlando, FL, and the surrounding areas. To learn about the benefits of Morpheus8 and find out whether you’re a good candidate for this procedure, read on.
What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is an innovative cosmetic treatment that combines the effects of microneedling with energy from radio waves to tighten skin all over the body.
Morpheus8 is minimally invasive and non-surgical. It uses ultrafine needles to make microscopic punctures in the skin. These punctures stimulate a healing response that boosts collagen and creates a more youthful appearance.
At the same time, intense radiofrequency energy is delivered deep into the skin’s cells to produce a tightening effect.
The Morpheus8 device can be used on almost any area of the body where sagging and wrinkling are present. Areas include the face, abdomen, buttocks, arms, thighs, and more. This versatility makes Morpheus8 a great choice for clients looking to resolve a wide variety of cosmetic concerns.
Morpheus8 treatment is growing in popularity because it offers numerous benefits. The following are just some of the improvements that clients may experience with Morpheus8:
- Tighter, smoother skin
- Firmer arms, legs, abs, and buttocks
- Reduced appearance of cellulite
- More even skin tone and texture
- Smaller, tighter pores
- Decrease in blemishes, including melasma
- Diminished stretch marks
- Fewer fine lines, wrinkles, and creases in the skin
- More youthful overall figure
The benefits of Morpheus8 include more than just its results. The procedure itself is beneficial because it is a minimally invasive, outpatient treatment.
There are no incisions, sutures, or scarring involved. You don’t need anesthesia for your Morpheus8 treatment, either. After your treatment is finished, you can return home and resume your normal activity.
How Is Morpheus8 Performed?
If you’re interested in Morpheus8 treatment, you may be wondering what you can expect from this procedure. Below is a breakdown of the complete Morpheus8 process from beginning to end.
Start with an Expert Consultation
Your Morpheus8 transformation will begin with a consultation. We must evaluate your skin and assess any age-related changes to determine whether Morpheus8 is right for you.
Every client has a unique desired outcome, which means Morpheus8 may not be the ideal fit for you. If not, we’ll tell you about additional options that can better meet your needs.
The Morpheus8 Procedure
On the day of your Morpheus8 session, wash your skin with a gentle cleanser and do not apply anything to it, including makeup, lotions, and topical medications. The skin should be completely clear and free of debris for your session.
During your session, you’ll be able to lie back comfortably while one of our cosmetic providers administers your treatment. A topical anesthetic may be applied to your skin for optimal comfort.
Your provider will use a gentle, handheld device with tiny needles that will make microscopic punctures in the skin. While that’s happening, the Morpheus8 device will simultaneously emit intense radiofrequency energy deep into your skin.
The duration of your Morpheus8 session will depend on which areas you are having treated. For most patients, this includes some combination of the stomach, back, thighs, buttocks, and arms. When your session is complete, you will be able to return home and resume normal activity. There is no downtime or recovery process required.
Seeing Your Morpheus8 Results
When microneedling and radiofrequency energy are combined, the effects on your skin are multiplied. The punctures made by the microneedling produce a healing response in your skin that increases natural collagen production. The radiofrequency energy changes your skin’s cells in ways that create a tightening effect.
All of this leads to smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin overall.
Most clients need several sessions to see optimal results from their Morpheus8 treatment. The exact number of sessions varies from patient to patient, but most people have between three and six sessions in total. We can determine the number of sessions you’ll need during your initial consultation.
Am I a Good Candidate for Morpheus8?
Good candidates for Morpheus8 treatment are those adults who have seen a change in the way their skin looks with age. If you have sagging, wrinkled skin around the face, abdomen, thighs, arms, or buttocks, you may be a good candidate for Morpheus8 treatment.
Morpheus8 is not a weight loss procedure. Ideal candidates should be within range of their optimal weight for the treatment to be most effective. To confirm whether you will see Morpheus8 benefits, you must consult with a cosmetic medicine provider.
