Maintaining youthful skin becomes more difficult each year. This is because the building blocks that prevent the signs of aging become less effective as we age. At Skin6 we provide anti-aging cosmetic treatments that target the skin’s foundation to help stimulate the production of youthful healing cells. Although you might be discouraged by costly, invasive cosmetic surgeries like facelifts, effective alternative treatments are available. Morpheus8 is one of the most advanced cosmetic treatments to help tighten and tone skin without needing costly, painful surgery. It also targets other skin issues, from acne scarring to stretch marks and uneven skin tone to sagging.
What Causes the Signs of Aging?
When it comes to your skin, the collagen and adipose tissue layers beneath the outer layer of the skin influence your skin’s appearance. Aging slows the production of these critical properties, reducing the skin’s ability to maintain its youthful appearance. As production breaks down, it causes structural instability of the skin leading to wrinkles, discolouration, sagging, texture changes, and more.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is the most advanced micro-needling treatment available. It penetrates the deepest layers of your skin to improve the production of youth-giving collagen and adipose tissue. The healing response is stimulated as a reaction to the tiny “wounds” caused by micro-needles. While this might seem similar to other micro-needling treatments, the difference lies in improving adipose tissue production, not just collagen.
How Does Morpheus8 Work?
Morpheus8 uses microneedles to create tiny “micro-injuries” on your skin. This stimulates the skin’s natural healing mechanisms to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that provides structure and elasticity for tight, toned skin without wrinkles or sagging. When you boost collagen levels, you overcome the aging effect caused by reduced collagen production.
Morpheus8 is more effective than other micro-needling treatments because as the tiny micro-needles penetrate your skin, they use the power of radiofrequency waves to emit heat. As a result, the treatment penetrates more deeply, so you achieve improved tightening of the harder-to-reach fat layer where the adipose tissue lies. In addition, the needles reach a depth of 4mm to produce both a tightening and thickening effect as opposed to other micro-needling devices that only penetrate 2mm.
What Can Morpheus8 Treat?
We recommend Morpheus8 for facial rejuvenation to correct multiple issues, including:
- Double chin
- Excess fat on the face
- Sun damage
- Acne scarring and enlarged pores
- Scars on the face and body
- Stretch marks
- Skin texture
- Deep lines and creases
- Sagging face and neck skin
- Uneven or rough skin
We offer free consultations to discuss what you hope to achieve and recommend the most suitable treatment.
Is Morpheus8 Treatment Painful?
Skin6 ensures you remain as comfortable as possible during your procedure. We apply a local anesthetic to decrease the sensation caused by the needles and radiofrequency penetration.
How is Morpheus8 Treatment Applied?
Our certified professionals use a small handheld applicator with tiny needles powered by radiofrequency. The applicator is placed on the target areas of your skin for a few seconds allowing the energy and needles to penetrate. The applicator is then moved to the adjacent area to repeat the process until the entire surface of your skin is treated.
How Long Does Morpheus8 Take to Produce Results?
You can expect results following the first treatment. You will experience reddening, but you will still be able to detect changes. However, in most cases, you require two to four treatments to see significant changes. We will discuss your goals and recommend the number of treatments required to achieve the look you desire.
What Can I Expect Immediately Following My Morpheus8 Treatment?
Your skin will be red for one or two days, with the possibility of slight swelling. Because of related sensitivity, it’s best to avoid wearing makeup for two days or until the sensitivity and redness disappear. Most patients recover by the day following treatment.
Can Anyone Have Morpheus8 Treatment?
No. Because micro-needling can cause bleeding, it is not recommended if you have the following:
- Clotting or bleeding disorders
- Blood thinning medications
- Skin conditions such as eczema
- A weakened immune system
