Does your facial skin reveal your age? If so, perhaps the culprit is both skin laxity and tone. Until recently, treating both issues required multiple treatment methods, often including surgery and lasers. However, emerging aesthetic technologies make it possible to enjoy comprehensive facial rejuvenation without extensive or invasive procedures.
For non-surgical facial rejuvenation in New Orleans, our team offers Morpheus 8. This technology utilizes radiofrequency (RF) which creates meaningful skin tightening without the need for invasive treatment. RF skin paired with microneedling, another non-surgical procedure, creates incredible results in the treatment of skin laxity while improving tone, texture and the overall appearance of your skin.
What is Morpheus 8?
Morpheus 8 technology comes from the world’s leader in radiofrequency, InMode. It adds the skin-tightening benefits of radiofrequency with the effectiveness of microneedling to enhance facial beauty. Morpheus 8 is a revolutionary skincare system because it penetrates deeper than many of the existing microneedling devices, and it has been granted FDA-approval as a subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD).
The underlying layers of the dermis are the building blocks of attractive facial contours. Morpheus 8 delivers fractional skin treatment to these support structures to enhance facial beauty. It also accelerates collagen production to improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles, and tighten skin.
By targeting the skin’s deeper layers, Morpheus 8 targets soft tissue’s building blocks, prompting them to restructure and create natural anti-aging. The technology can be useful in any area, such as the neck, chin, and jawline. Other treatable issues are acne scarring and skin discoloration.
Facetite is an advanced technology developed by InMode which uses radio-frequency (RF) energy to reduce excessive fullness of the lower face and tighten loose skin without the risk of scarring. The technology works by compressing fibers underneath and on the skin’s surface. During the procedure, our doctors make small puncture sites made the chin to allow the insertion of specific probes. These probes work to tighten the dermis at and beneath the surface. Sensors monitor the temperature during treatment, so ideal endpoints are reached to attain optimal results.
Combining Morpheus 8 with FaceTite (Embrace RF)
Combining Morpheus 8 with Facetite is the next best thing to a surgical facelift. This combination will address skin laxity through three-dimensional remodeling and differential tissue. The built-in integrated protections of real-time measurements of skin and fat temperature supports patient safety. Embrace RF is a minimally-invasive procedure performed under light sedation or local anesthesia.
During the treatment session, a thin probe with a needle-like entry point is inserted under the skin at the treatment area to direct the RF heat and energy to the underlying tissue. The skin surface and underlying tissue are treated concurrently with a specially-designed handpiece. This treatment will destroy small areas of stubborn fat and cause the skin to contract, delivering firmer, slimmer, and youthful facial contours.
Benefits of Microneedling with Fractionated Energy
Fractionated RF energy is a clinically proven approach to soften wrinkles and replace collagen and fat. Morpheus 8 uses microneedling to revive the thick layers of the skin with almost no downtime. Microneedling creates microscopic injuries to the surface of the skin, which starts the body’s natural healing processes. During healing, renewed levels of collagen and elastin are produced, and these are the source of youthful-looking skin.
RF energy heats these deep skin layers in a controlled process to regenerate collagen production. The procedure will improve skin texture and tone for a more youthful, more radiant complexion. The combination of radiofrequency and microneedling proves to be highly effective in plumping skin, so it looks youthful and is firmer to the touch.
Morpheus 8 FAQs
Any area which can benefit from sub-dermal revitalization is a suitable target area for Morpheus 8. The most common areas are the neck and lower face, but any area which has acne, discoloration, stretch marks, or wrinkles can be a target area.
Patients who require optimal treatments for hyperpigmentation, scarring or wrinkles are good candidates for Morpheus 8. These include patients with any skin types or tone.
For optimal results, expect to have up to three individualized sessions.
Because patient downtime is minimal, you can apply makeup one or two days after treatment. You should expect to see micro-lesions for a few days, and some redness for up to a week depending on the treatment parameters.
You should keep the treatment site moist and avoid any direct sunlight. We also recommend you wear a good SPF 30 or above sunscreen every day. Sunscreen should be worn if the sun is out or not, to protect against exposing yourself to UV rays
