How Does Morpheus8 Work?
Sagging skin is a natural part of the aging process, and one that is hard to accept. Studies prove that when we look younger, we feel younger, have more energy and greater self-esteem and confidence. At Grossman Medical, we offer our patients a new, minimally invasive skin- tightening technology called Morpheus8 that works to eliminate sagging skin, give one a more youthful appearance, and make the skin smoother. If you have done a Google search for “Morpheus8 Los Angeles” and are curious to learn how this treatment works, then read on to learn more about this popular skin-tightening treatment.
How Morpheus8 Works
Morpheus8 is a device that uses micro needling to tighten the skin by increasing collagen production. As the tiny needles pierce the skin, tiny channels are created that enable the radiofrequency waves to find their way even deeper beneath the surface of the skin. When the radiofrequency waves and micro needling are used together the effect of tightening up one’s skin is intensified, which garners a more contoured face with skin that is softer, more youthful-looking, and that’s smoother to the touch.
What are the Benefits of Using Morpheus8?
Though Morpheus8 is known for helping people achieve tighter, even-toned skin on the face, the treatment is also a great solution for people looking to achieve the following:
- Tighten sagging skin on the jawline
- Tightening skin on the neck
- Smoothing the skin under the eyes
- Tightening the arms
- Smoothing out the knees
- Tightening and smoothing skin on the buttocks
- Tightening and smoothing the abdomen
- Improving the contour and skin on other areas of the body
People also seek Morpheus8 treatments in Los Angeles to rid their body of acne scars or areas where the skin is discolored. In addition, Morpheus8 is useful when it comes to removing stretch marks, tightening up your pores, and generating deep collagen.
Finally, women who get a mommy makeover procedure will include Morpheus8 as a way to compliment the results of the other procedures selected with the help of their plastic surgeon.
What are Some Common Occurrences People Experience that Requires Morpheus8 as a Solution?
Rapid weight loss and postpartum skin changes are common causes of skin sagging and laxity. In fact, after women have given birth and are done breast-feeding, many will work Morpheus8 into a mommy makeover.
As for rapid weight loss, a lot of people who get Morpheus8 treatments are people who had weight loss surgery and the sagging skin was the result of this fast weight loss. This can be devastating for many, as you underwent a procedure to get your body back, and even though you lose weight, the sagging skin is there, and you are still miles away from reaching your body goals.
Will Morpheus8 Work for Me?
The amazing thing about Morpheus8 is that it gives technicians the power to specifically tailor treatments to each unique patient’s needs thanks to an adjustable radiofrequency wave depth. For example, if you are contouring the hips and buttocks while also removing stretch marks, the technician can adjust the eaves to penetrate more deeply than they would have to if they were treating the forehead.
Morpheus8 is also safe for all skin types, including darker skin and there is no post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) that comes with other skin resurfacing treatments.
What to Expect when Getting Morpheus8 Treatments
Thankfully, there is minimal preparation for receiving Morpheus8 treatments, and little downtime. When you have your Morpheus8 consultation the doctor may tell you to avoid certain medications, vitamins, and other supplements. Before the procedure, a numbing cream will be applied to minimize any discomfort, and usually you will need to wait for an hour after the cream has been applied so that it can take effect. Based on the area or areas you are treating, Morpheus8 can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour to perform. The face usually takes 15 minutes. Once the procedure is over you will want to use sunscreen if you plan on being outdoors, and you will want to use a moisturizer. There is a chance that after you receive Morpheus8 you may see some redness or swelling, but this usually goes away within a few days.
