Morpheus8 is a revolutionary procedure that safely and effectively uses radiofrequency energy to transform the appearance of your face. By contouring and smoothing the skin, it can help you firm up sagging skin and wrinkles and restore your face to a more youthful look.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a microneedling device that demonstrates the beneficial effect that modern technology can have on the human body. This revolutionary tool and procedure help create natural-looking facial contours by penetrating both the fat and skin to make your face seem much more delineated. Using the latest in scientific advances to develop a unique product, this innovative device gives results that have never been seen before. Just one Morpheus treatment enables you to feel happier and more confident about your appearance.
Morpheus8 combines microneedling with fractionated RF energy to target multiple layers of the skin and fatty tissue, thus stimulating collagen production. When you want your skin to remain youthful-looking as long as possible, collagen production is the key. This protein found within the body is what gives our bone structure its shape. Another important protein is elastin, which is what provides your skin with its elasticity. When your building blocks of collagen and elastin are healthy, it is reflected on the face that you project to the world.
The device used for the Morpheus8 procedure operates with precision to activate those building blocks, therefore targeting exactly the areas of your skin that need attention. It gently encourages the collagen production in these specifically chosen spots. These results permit your face to generate and maintain even more collagen, which keeps you looking younger. The changes in your face are not just external. By heating the inner layers of the skin, its texture is improved.
Why Choose Morpheus8?
As a compassionate physician who understands the whole mind-body connection, Dr. Catherine Vanderloos, MD, spends time with her patients and reviews any physical concerns they may have. In response to hearing these patients lament the changes that aging skin brings and the resulting lack of self-confidence, Dr. Vanderloos sought a safe, effective procedure that would help remedy such anxieties. After much research into different methodologies and treatments, she decided that using Morpheus8 could be the answer to these patients’ concerns while staying within their budgetary constraints.
A small series of Morpheus8 treatments have a large payoff. Its winning results can be attributed to its minimally invasive nature that uses a combination of micro pins to penetrate the skin without wreaking havoc. Many skin treatments cause your skin to become so red and inflamed that you choose to stay home for several days afterward to avoid questions about what has happened to your face. However, recovery from a Morpheus8 procedure is much simpler. While you may experience mild side effects like raised bumps or redness, these should disappear quickly.
And the results are an incredible trade-off for just a short time in the doctor’s office. Smoother, more even-toned skin can be yours in less time than you ever thought possible. Feeling better about the face that you present to the world is priceless and can be achieved in just one to three visits to Dr. Vanderloos.
Which Areas Benefit from Morpheus8?
The biggest advantage of the revolutionary Morpheus8 treatment is that it helps you achieve that contoured face look that you have always coveted. You may be feeling discouraged because as you grow older, the natural beauty you have been accustomed to exhibiting may have become eclipsed by the signs of aging.
While there are many body parts that show great results from Morpheus8, this treatment is especially effective on:
- Loose neck skin
- Acne scarring
When you have a consultation with Dr. Catherine Vanderloos MD, feel free to indicate those regions of your face or body that are troubling you so you can discuss how Morpheus8 can help enhance and define them.
She will help you develop a treatment plan that concentrates on your most pressing concerns and help you improve the appearance of signs of aging. One of the reasons that Dr. Vanderloos selected the Morpheus8 treatment to add to her repertoire is its versatility. You can also combine Morpheus8 with other procedures. This allows you to strategize what is going to deliver the best results by combining multiple treatment methods into a customized plan.
How Long Does It Take to See Results from Morpheus8?
You may begin to see results after just a few days, but significant improvement surfaces approximately three weeks after your treatment. The reason for this delay is that the penetration of Morpheus8 triggers real changes within your skin. Just like a plant that grows, your collagen and elastin need some time to rebuild. As the levels rise, the strength and elasticity of your skin increase. This changes the appearance of your face and gives you a more youthful look. In fact, the benefits of a Morpheus8 treatment build upon themselves for some time. For up to three months post-treatment, you may notice your skin continue to tighten and contour.
While this is a very safe procedure, you may experience some slight effects. Following the treatment, you might experience mild redness for several days. Additionally, you should not use makeup for one or two days after that. Giving your skin this little time to rest and heal is advantageous.
Who Can Benefit from Morpheus8?
This minimally invasive procedure works well to tighten the skin of patients in their mid-30s who have noticed some slackening. For them, this can be the step that obviates the need for a facelift or a more aggressive procedure later on. For patients over the age of 40, several Morpheus8 treatments work wonders to help firm and elevate their skin, thus restoring a more youthful appearance.
One of the amazing advantages of Morpheus8 is that it can be used on any skin type. Its color-blind technology means that it produces excellent results no matter what the tone of your skin is. When you have a consultation with Dr. Vanderloos, and she explains what Morpheus8 is, she can also give her opinion about what you should expect from this treatment.
