Many people encounter complexion concerns at some point in their lives. Whether you are struggling with skin that is prone to breakouts, you have acne scarring, or you have some of the normal signs of aging such as sun spots and wrinkles, you may be wondering if there is a way to have smoother skin without the downtime that comes with invasive procedures.
At Resurgence Med Spa, we offer Morpheus8, an RF microneedling treatment, which can be beneficial for people of all ages who are struggling with their complexion. While your skin is designed to heal wounds and renew itself, sometimes it needs a little help. By stimulating your skin and helping it to perform these natural processes, Morpheus8 may be able to give you the smooth and healthy skin that you are looking for.
What Is RF Microneedling?
RF microneedling is a treatment that combines microneedling, for superficial renewal, with radiofrequency energy, for deep stimulation and rejuvenation. When working together, the benefits of these technologies compound, and the treatment can be incredibly effective.
As you age, the production of collagen and elastin can begin to slow down drastically. This is often the cause of skin that feels thinner and more fragile or that has started to wrinkle, fold, or sag. RF microneedling can restimulate this production and smooth out your complexion. Let’s take a closer look at the two treatments of an RF microneedling device.
To prompt the skin on your face into a state of renewal, your skin needs to think that it is injured. Microneedling is the process of creating tiny microchannels in the skin. While microchanneling does not cause damage to your skin, it helps to jumpstart a healing process on the surface of your skin. Your body will jump into action to heal your skin. After several treatments, you should notice a smoother surface on the treatment area.
While the microneedles only penetrate superficially, RF technology works to penetrate deeper into the subdermal areas of the skin. Radiofrequency energy translates as heat energy that stimulates collagen and elastin production. This heat isn’t enough to cause damage to your skin, but it is enough to prompt a healing response deep in your skin.
What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is an RF microneedling device that is specifically designed with comfort, effectiveness, and versatility in mind. It can be used in many different areas of the face and body to tighten skin, minimize fine lines, provide a more even skin tone, soften the texture of the skin, minimize scarring, and help with hyperpigmentation.
With the Morpheus8 treatment, we can achieve a more comfortable and customizable patient experience. It can be used as part of our overall skincare plan to make your skin healthier and give it a youthful glow.
Six Morpheus8 Benefits
Morpheus 8 is a unique device that stands out from other similar products. We have chosen this device for use in our practice because of the treatment options that we have with the Morpheus8, the comfort level that we can provide for our patients, and the unique benefits that it provides for individuals who come to our office. Here are six benefits that come with choosing the Morpheus8.
Morpheus8 Can Be Used for Smaller Treatment Areas
The unique design of the Morpheus8 device means that it can be used on areas that are smaller and more delicate. It is perfect for use around the eyes or on the upper lip. This can help reduce bagginess or fine lines in the periorbital area, or vertical lines around the mouth.
Morpheus8 Can Provide Treatment Up to 5mm Deep
The combined power of the microneedle and RF technologies means that the device can stimulate the healing process as deep as 5mm. This is twice as deep as similar devices that don’t have RF technology can penetrate. All this is still done without damaging or tearing the skin.
Morpheus8 Includes Three Different Tips for Maximum Customization
Customization is important to us because everyone who comes in our doors needs a slightly different treatment. With the Morpheus8 device’s three tip options, we can target all of your desired areas. It is common to switch tips during one session. Every area of your face, including the forehead, neck, cheeks, and around the eyes and mouth can benefit from the use of one of the three tips.
Morpheus8 Can Be Used With Darker Skin Tones
Some other resurfacing treatments may be considered unsafe for individuals with darker skin since there can be a risk of hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation. However, Morpheus8 treatments are considered safe for those with all skin types, including those with darker skin.
Morpheus8 Has a Shorter Downtime
RF microneedling has a much shorter downtime than other treatments. While you may have red, flushed skin after the treatment, this fades quickly. You may also have tiny microscabs but these are easily covered up with makeup and will resolve within a few days. Most people feel comfortable going about their normal day as soon as the treatment is over.
Morpheus8 Minimizes Post-Inflammatory Pigmentation
Microchanneling is a very gentle way to trigger a healing response. Unlike DIY microneedling devices, it doesn’t tear the skin. Other more aggressive methods, while they may be right for some people, can sometimes result in post-inflammatory pigmentation. With Morpheus8, the risk of this is much lower.
