Hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and sagging skin are all common concerns that come with aging. While surgeries and more invasive treatments can be effective for addressing some signs of aging, Morpheus8 can offer a minimally invasive option.
At AMG Aesthetics in Tucson, AZ, we use Morpheus8 for skin rejuvenation and skin tightening. It can also help to address complexion concerns such as discoloration or acne scarring. Drs. Amanda Bacchus-Morris and Gerald Morris are committed to improving your health and addressing cosmetic concerns using a wide range of cosmetic and medical treatments. Through our consultations, we can determine whether Morpheus8 is right for you.
What Is Morpheus8?
InMode Morpheus8 is a skin-tightening treatment that uses both radiofrequency energy and microneedling technology. This minimally invasive device offers customizable treatments for a wide range of patients of all ages and many different skin types and tones. Morpheus8 is designed specifically for use on the face, neck, and décolletage, but it can provide benefits for many different areas of the body including the stomach, legs, buttocks, and more.
During a Morpheus8 treatment, small needles on the device puncture the skin creating tiny microchannels that your body begins to heal. Radiofrequency energy heats the deeper layers of skin, stimulating even more healing in the dermis. Both technologies promote cell turnover, skin healing, and the recruitment of fibroblasts which are responsible for the production of collagen.
What Benefits Do Morpheus8 Treatments Provide?
Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles appear on most people by the time they are in their 40s. They can come from intrinsic aging factors such as genetics, as well as extrinsic factors such as sun exposure, lifestyle, and more. However, regardless of these factors, the root cause is usually a loss of collagen and elastin fibers which can decrease naturally with age or be damaged by the sun. One of the main Morpheus8 benefits is the device’s ability to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin in the skin.
Tightens Sagging Skin
Sagging skin can also be caused by a loss of essential fibers and proteins in the skin. When skin loses its elasticity, it can begin to sag. This is commonly seen on the jawline and underneath the eyes. As a skin-tightening treatment, Morpheus 8 can effectively treat jowls, under-eye bags, and sagging skin in other areas of the face and neck.
Smoothes Acne Scars
If you have ever had to suffer through a cystic acne breakout, it is likely that you also have scars as a result of inflammatory acne. Ice pick, boxcar, and rolling scars can occur when your body doesn’t produce enough collagen, elastin, or new tissue to compensate for the amount of damaged tissue. As a result, the skin becomes depressed and uneven. By stimulating your body to create new tissue and collagen fibers, these scars can become less noticeable after several Morpheus8 procedures.
Reverses Sun Damage
When UV rays penetrate the skin, it can lead to damage both in the deeper layers and on the superficial layers of the skin. Ultraviolet radiation can damage collagen and elastin, increase inflammation, create the production of excess melanin, and damage cells. Morpheus8 can minimize the appearance of sun damage by helping your body replace damaged skin cells with new ones and by promoting collagenesis.
Minimizes Stretch Marks
When your skin goes through rapid growth such as during pregnancy or growth spurts, the collagen and elastin fibers in the skin can rupture. This can leave scar tissue which often starts as a dark purple or pink color and fades with time. Morpheus8 benefits can include making the skin thicker in areas that are affected by stretch marks and improving the appearance, color, and texture of the skin in these areas.
Improves Skin Texture and Tone
If you have skin that is rough or uneven, we may be able to improve the texture using our Morpheus8 treatments. This treatment can exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells. It can also help to improve the absorption of hydrating products, helping to resolve dry skin. Certain types of acne and rosacea can also be treated with RF microneedling.
Microneedling Before and After
How Many Morpheus8 Treatments Will You Need?
Morpheus8 treatments are customizable for every patient. Some patients may only need one treatment to see improvements in their skin. However, multiple treatments may be indicated for patients with deeper lines and wrinkles, severe acne scarring, or recurring problems. At your consultation, we will discuss your concerns with you and determine the number of treatment sessions that we recommend. Then we will follow up after each treatment to discuss your results and schedule additional appointments.
When Can You Expect Morpheus8 Results?
After your treatment, you will need to wait several weeks for Morpheus8 results to become apparent. It can take 4-6 weeks for collagenesis to do its work in your skin. The texture and appearance of your skin can continue to improve even beyond this period of time. Talk to your doctor to find out what results you may be able to expect from your treatment and how soon you can begin to see them.
