You may not be happy with how your face looks. There are a variety of things that bug you – like acne scars, loose skin, and some fullness in areas. Trying to find the best treatment can seem dizzying – there are so many options out there – like Botox and Juvederm, to name two.
There is another option out there that is getting great results: Morpheus8 treatment. No, it doesn’t have anything to do with “The Matrix” movies and you don’t go to sleep. It is microneedling coupled with radiofrequency energy (RF) and it does not require you to go under the knife.
Here are some of the benefits of getting Morpheus8.
There is a Customized Treatment Plan
Usually, when you go in for microneedling, the person performing it is limited by how deep they can go – usually a maximum of 1.5 to 2 millimeters. That is not an issue when it comes to Morpheus8. You can have the needs go as deep as 8 millimeters and as shallow as 0.5 millimeters.
You can have many more areas targeted here – like one series going after any fat and the other rejuvenating your skin. It also allows the person administering it to do your entire face in one session – including your eyes, neck, and jawline.
You Can Have Increased Production of Collagen
Collagen is what makes your skin look smooth and young. After you turn 20, your body will produce 1% less each year. Morpheus8 boosts that, so you can see younger-looking skin again. It will be a lot firmer and your face will look fuller.
You Can Decrease The Amount of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
As you get older, you will see lines around your eyes, mouth, and forehead. When you get Morpheus8, you will notice that those things will improve around those areas, which will give you a more youthful appearance.
You Can Improve Your Loose Skin
Morpheus8 can be used to both lift and tighten loose skin. Are you tired of seeing sagging in your neck, chin, or jowls? That can be rectified with this treatment. Your face is not the only body part that can get this work done on – if you don’t like your arms or your bra line, this can tighten up those areas.
You Can Have Acne Scars Minimized
While your teen years may be in your rear mirror, they may have left some reminders in the form of acne scarring. You may even have pimples. Morpheus8 shuts down the oil glands or shrinks them and it keeps you from making a lot of skin oil. Your whole face will be smoother and the acne scars can be reduced by half.
You Can Make Stretch Marks Fade Away
Whether or not you have these from having a baby or other reasons – both men and women can get these. The reason that Morpheus8 is so effective is that it breaks down scar tissue and gives your skin more firmness and elasticity. So get ready to wave goodbyes to stretch marks.
You may be wondering how many treatments you need. It can vary from one to five, depending on what body parts you are having this done on. Your dermatologist will give you a firm answer when you come in to see them for your first visit, which is usually a consultation.
Overall, you can expect to have the results last for about a year or two before you need to go in for another treatment. The reason for this is that you need to have it done so that your body will continue to increase its collagen production, so you need to keep coming regularly to keep the results looking like they should.
You will love the above results during that time span. It’s non-invasive and you won’t have to spend time recovering – and the post-procedure care is the same as many others – so you will not be inconvenienced. The main thing to remember is to keep it clean and not pick at the skin as it heals.
As far as cost goes, this can vary, since it depends on where you are going to have the work done. Your dermatologist will likely tell you the cost when you come in for a consultation.
You are a candidate if you are a man or woman in good general health. Your skin type doesn’t matter – it will work if you have dry or oily skin. People who have sensitive skin are still candidates. The side effects are also very minimal, usually. You may have redness, pinpoint bleeding, and mild bruising or swelling that usually resolves itself in up to three days.
There are some people who are not ideal candidates – they include women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. People who have pacemakers or glucose monitors are not good candidates due to the RF. Those who have permanent plates or screws should avoid this. If they have herpes simplex or other conditions that are stimulated by heat, they should not have this. Those who have open wounds or sores around the treatment area should wait until it fully heals.
Those conditions that could eliminate some candidates from qualifying are pretty much the only “Cons” that you could list if you were making a list of Pros vs. Cons when deciding on Morpheus8. It is a very safe procedure and people have next to no side effects when recovering from this treatment.
The only other consideration you have to think about is whether the place that you are going to is reputable. If you go to a well-known dermatologist that has a lot of reviews, you will be in excellent hands.
You will find that this is an excellent option – the dermatology and beauty industry has combined to create something that will take years off your face and body in a procedure that is done on an outpatient basis. You will love how you look.
