If your skin is aging (and simply because you’re alive, it is!), you may keep your eyes and ears open for the latest tips and tricks for managing your appearance. The signs of aging can be a drag. Quite literally, our aging skin becomes loose and thin over time, which can drag the face down via a downturned mouth, lines and creases, jowls, and a turkey neck. The team at ReDerm MD in Denver is proud to offer a variety of nonsurgical solutions for these problems. One of the latest and greatest is Morpheus8. We’ll introduce you to it here.
What is Morpheus8 and What Can it Do?
Morpheus8 is a radiofrequency device developed by InMode, a leader in the field of aesthetic technologies. Morpheus8 isn’t just a radiofrequency skin-tightening treatment; it is referred to as a subdermal adipose remodeling device. Its technology provides an excellent option for people wanting to correct cosmetic concerns such as:
- Double chin
- Turkey neck
- Nasolabial folds
- Fine lines
- Sagging skin
- Acne scars
In addition to firming the skin, Morpheus8 stimulates a strong collagen remodeling process that can also improve the tone and texture of the skin. After treatment, patients may notice a reduction in visible veins, enlarged pores, brown spots, melasma, and other concerns.
How it Works
Morpheus8 is built upon two powerful modalities, microneedling and radiofrequency energy. By combining the two, the device gets better results than either would achieve independently, and it does so in fewer treatments. The device applicator features 2 dozen silicone-coated microneedles that can penetrate 200 to 400 microns deep in the skin. As the automated needles create controlled punctures in the skin, they also pass radiofrequency energy beneath the surface to stimulate a stronger remodeling response. Radiofrequency is a warming energy as it gets absorbed, so it also melts the adipose fat that often obscures youthful facial features.
Benefits of Morpheus8 Treatment
Many patients love that they can address loose, sagging skin without surgery and its associated downtime and side effects. Morpheus8 requires no prep and the session takes less than an hour. While the skin may be slightly red for a short time, it is possible to resume normal activities right away. There is no real downtime to speak of and no need to take time off work.
