OK, so during the insane amount of time we’ve all had to spend indoors over the past 18 months, you watched The Matrix trilogy a few times. After all, how many jigsaw puzzles can one person do? So now, to you Morpheus is the Lawrence Fishburne character leading the fight against the Machines.
Your skin disagrees. And for proof, it cites all those up-close Zoom meetings and the need for some facial rejuvenation. That’s why Dr. Smith offers the Morpheus8 treatment for skin rejuvenation at his practice in Okatie.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is the most advanced fractional resurfacing treatment available. It combines microneedling, radiofrequency energy, and fractional resurfacing into one awesome treatment. Morpheus8 is the first and only full-body fractional technology for subdermal adipose remodeling. Morpheus8 gets its name thanks to its ability to morph the skin’s building blocks to contour the face and body.
What are the key benefits with Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 delivers much of the contouring you can expect with a facelift without any incisions. Morpheus8 can be used on any area of the body, but we’ve found it exceptionally effective for loose, sagging, and crepey skin on the face and neck. Here are some benefits of these treatments:
- Increased collagen production
- Quicker results
- Minimizes acne scarring
- Reduces wrinkles
- Fades stretch marks
- Reduces large pores
- Shorter treatment times
- No downtime
- Can be used on all skin tones
How does Morpheus8 work?
The secret to Morpheus8’s effectiveness is the depth its microneedles penetrate. By penetrating through the outer epidermis into the dermis, the usual concerns about damage to the outer epidermis don’t come into play. When the needles reach their target depth, the tips deliver a pulse of RF energy. This energy heats the dermis. When the body senses heat in the dermis layer, it assumes there has been a wound, so it initiates a wound-healing response. This involves remodeling all existing collagen in the area, and then beginning the production of new collagen. Since collagen provides the skin’s structural support latticework, this instantly tightens the skin and then the increased collagen continues to build your results.
Your results aren’t instant. You’ll have some redness and slight swelling across the treatment areas. You’ll see visible contouring and skin texture changes in 2-4 weeks, but your collagen production continues to ramp up for up to 6 months.
