Loose skin is one of the most common signs of aging, and while it’s often most visible on the face, it also appears on the body due to aging and other factors. At our Advanced Aesthetics locations in Henderson and Las Vegas, NV, we offer RF microneedling with the Morpheus8 device to address and correct loose skin on the face and body, so patients can enjoy naturally tighter, younger, and healthier-looking skin.
What Is Morpheus8 RF Microneedling?
Morpheus8 is a popular treatment device that strengthens the skin’s foundational layers through deep, fractional RF microneedling technology. The device is equipped with handpieces suitable for smaller areas on the face and larger areas on the body, and while it primarily tightens the skin by initiating a natural healing response from the body, Morpheus8 can also address many skin imperfections and concerns.
Treating the Face
Morpheus8 facial treatments address common imperfections that affect the complexion due to environmental factors, lifestyle, acne, and aging. It can reduce the size of the pores, treat and help eliminate acne scars, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
It can also remodel collagen to promote tighter and younger-looking skin, reduce the appearance of textural irregularities, and improve skin texture and tone. Patients can schedule Morpheus8 treatments to address specific imperfections, signs of aging, scars or simply to experience total facial rejuvenation.
Treating the Body
Morpheus8 is equipped with a handpiece specifically designed to target different body areas. We can use it to remodel specific areas to tighten the skin and improve contours and definition. The device can tighten and strengthen the skin on the buttocks, thighs, abdomen, flanks, and other areas. Treatments will tighten the skin and can also remodel fat.
What Are the Treatment Benefits?
Morpheus8 provides men and women with a non-surgical treatment that can tighten and tone the skin, reverse the signs of aging, contour the body, and improve patient confidence through a quick and minimally invasive treatment. Some of the treatment benefits include the following:
- Treatments are relatively quick
- The treatment process is minimally invasive and comfortable
- Treatments are customizable and can target the face, body, or multiple areas
- Treatments are non-surgical
- There’s minimal to no downtime after a treatment
- Maintenance treatments can prolong results long-term
- Results appear gradually
- Results are long-lasting
How It Works
The Morpheus8 device uses 40 gold-coated microneedles to tighten the skin and address specific facial and body imperfections. The treatment is completely customizable, and the device can be adjusted to target the patient’s specific concerns. The microneedles create tiny injuries in the skin while also delivering precise amounts of radiofrequency energy into the dermal layers.
Different needle depths are necessary to address specific imperfections on the face and the body, and once we determine the best treatment plan for you, we will perform the treatment with your concerns in mind, using the right needle depth and the right amount of radiofrequency energy.
Pairing Morpheus8 With Liposuction for Skin Tightening Benefits
On its own, Morpheus8 delivers visibly tighter skin, but there are ways to utilize this device and its advanced technology to enhance the results of liposuction. Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that removes stubborn fat cells from the body for immediate and long-lasting results. However, what liposuction does not do is tighten the skin.
By pairing Morpheus8 with a liposuction treatment plan, we can help patients accomplish two body contouring goals during one treatment plan and enhance their treatment results. If you want to learn more about pairing liposuction with Morpheus8, an initial consultation is the first step. This consultation is meant to give you more details about this joint treatment, answer any questions, and determine whether it’s right for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
When you schedule a Morpheus8 treatment, you can expect a comfortable experience. The device is equipped with microneedles, but we take every step to promote patient comfort and apply a numbing solution to the treatment area before beginning the treatment process.
During the treatment, you may feel a warming sensation due to the radiofrequency heat energy targeting the dermal layers of your skin and a slight pressure as the device creates thousands of microchannels with gold-coated needles across the skin surface into the deeper layers.
Some patients notice treatment results within a few days due to an instant contraction of existing collagen. Still, the best results are most noticeable within the first three to four weeks after the initial treatment. Results will continue to improve after each treatment you schedule.
You can expect results after a single treatment, but the best results come from undergoing at least three to four sessions. During your consultation, we will determine the right number of sessions to address your particular skin concerns.
Morpheus8 treatments deliver long-lasting results. However, because the aging process results in a continual decrease in natural collagen production, your results won’t last forever. However, you can schedule follow-up maintenance treatments to prolong your treatment results and continue stimulating your body to maintain adequate collagen production for healthy, tighter, and younger-looking skin.
Morpheus8 RF microneedling treatments require minimal to no social downtime. There are some aftercare instructions you will need to follow to ensure that your skin heals quickly and you achieve the best results. You’ll typically need to wait at least 24 hours before applying makeup.
Some patients experience redness for a few days. It’s important to use a high-quality, professional-grade sunscreen to protect your skin, avoid sun exposure, and use topical products as directed to promote healing and take advantage of your skin’s temporarily increased absorption rate.
Achieve Naturally and Visibly Tighter Skin
If you’re unhappy with how aging, weight loss or environmental factors have affected the health and strength of your skin and want to naturally reverse the effects of skin laxity, you may be the perfect candidate for a Morpheus8 treatment plan. Once we confirm your treatment eligibility, we can design a customized treatment plan so that you can experience naturally tighter skin on your face, body, or a combination of areas.
