Morpheus8 in Virginia Beach
Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that combines microneedling with radiofrequency waves. The procedure uses tiny needles to deliver radiofrequency waves deep into the skin. The needles cause micro lesions that trigger the natural healing response of the body and used alongside the radiofrequency energy, it promotes collagen and elastin production, firming and toning the skin.
Morpheus8 can be used to address a wide variety of skin concerns. It can improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, tighten loose skin, and smoothen out uneven or rough skin texture. It can also help lighten acne scars, fade hyperpigmentation, lighten stretch marks, and also reduce some fat. The procedure can be used on any part of the body, including the stomach and buttocks. However, it is more popularly used for the face, neck, and jawline.
How Does Morpheus8 Work?
Morpheus8 pairs microneedling with radiofrequency waves, two skin rejuvenation techniques known for their effectiveness in rejuvenating the skin without the need for invasive surgical techniques.
Microneedling, also called collagen-induction therapy, uses tiny needles to puncture the skin. The repeated puncturing causes microtrauma that stimulates the production of collagen in the skin. Morpheus8 uses micro puncturing of the skin while delivering radiofrequency waves deep into the skin.
The treatment affects both the epidermis (upper layer) and dermis (lower layer) of the skin. This helps improve the skin from within using deep remodeling and resurfacing. Microneedling with radiofrequency waves causes coagulation in the tissues, resulting in exfoliation and collagen remodeling. It tightens the skin while improving the tone and texture at the same time. You can continue to see visible results over the next three months as skin cells turn over and new collagen is produced.
What to Expect During the Treatment?
The treatment time varies between 15 and 60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment site. Dr. Choe will begin the procedure by applying a topical anesthetic to the area, which may take a little while to take effect. Sometimes, your doctor may also decide to use a local anesthetic to numb the area.
Morpheus8 is different from other microneedling devices in that it can be customized to deliver radiofrequency heat to different layers of the skin. Dr. Choe would adjust the setting according to the severity of your skin concerns. He will then apply the device across the treatment area, allowing the needles to puncture the skin and deliver the radiofrequency waves. There may be very slight discomfort during the procedure, but it will not be painful due to the anesthetic used.
How soon can you see results?
You can see the benefits of Morpheus8 within the first few days of the treatment and skin tightening in the following three weeks. The full results of the treatment would be visible after three months of your final session. The results may last for up to a year and follow-up sessions can be scheduled to prolong the effects after that.
Good Candidates For Morpheus8
Morpheus8 is an effective treatment for all skin types and tones and can be used to treat several skin conditions. Since it stimulates collagen production, people with aging skin, sun damage, and dark spots can see clearer, brighter, and more even-toned skin after the treatment. It is a completely safe option for people with dark skin, who may otherwise be at risk of hyperpigmentation due to the effects of some other skin treatments.
