As you get older, your skin produces less collagen, the protein that supports strong, firm, and resilient skin. Exposure to ultraviolet light breaks down the collagen currently in your skin. Additionally, the layer of fat that cushions your skin thins out and gives in to gravity.
As a result of these age-related changes, your skin becomes loose and saggy, and wrinkles become more noticeable. Morpheus 8 treatments that tighten your skin can reverse this problem, even making fine lines and wrinkles fade away.
The Morpheus 8 device combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. Traditional microneedling uses a cluster of tiny needles to puncture your skin. The resulting wounds naturally stimulate collagen production.
The Morpheus 8 has an array of tiny needles that go deeper than a typical microneedling device. The needles also release RF energy, sending out heat that promotes a bigger boost in collagen production.
Combining the needles and RF energy produces better results than one of them individually. Over a few months, fresh, collagen-rich skin replaces old skin that sloughs off at the surface. Your new skin is tighter and firmer, and problems at the surface disappear.
The Morpheus 8 can treat:
Though many patients treat their lower face and neck, your provider can use the device on nearly any part of your face and body.
After your treatment, you should expect some skin redness, slight swelling, bruising, and possibly pinprick marks or scabbing. You may also have some flaking or peeling. Though most people take a little time to heal, they typically return to regular activities in 1-2 days.
It’s essential to avoid exposure to sunlight. While wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen is crucial after skin treatment, using it daily also helps prevent aging, wrinkles, and skin cancer.
It takes your skin a little time to produce new collagen and elastin. As a result, you start seeing results in about three weeks.
You can reverse the signs of aging with Morpheus 8. To schedule an appointment, call Prime Wellness or book an appointment online today.
