Do you find yourself in front of the mirror, pulling back the skin on your face to rediscover the more youthful person that exists beneath the wrinkles and fine lines? What if we were to tell you that we can achieve the same effect without the need for an invasive surgery? Thanks to our advanced Morpheus8® technology, we’re helping our patients turn back the signs of aging by rebuilding their skin from the inside out.
At Advanced Aesthetics Lopez Plastic Surgery, Dr. Manuel Lopez and our team understand the frustration that comes with looking older than you feel, and we’re here to help you find solutions. Using the most advanced technologies available, including Morpheus8, we’re able to deliver dramatic results without the need for more invasive procedures like a facelift.
Here’s a look at why our patients are raving about Morpheus8 and what it can do for you.
Our Morpheus8 system is a subdermal remodeling device that uses fractional technology to rebuild your skin from within. To do this, the system combines the best of two worlds — microneedling and radiofrequency energy — which, together, pack an amazing anti-aging punch.
To begin with, microneedling is a technique in which we use tiny needles to create a matrix of small channels across the surface of your skin. Your body responds to these micro-injuries by sending in the necessary resources to rebuild what it perceives as “damaged” tissue.
The end result is that healthier cells, as well as collagen and elastin, fill in the network of channels, which lifts and smooths your skin.
With Morpheus8, we’re able to go one step further than traditional microneedling by adding radiofrequency energy to the mix. We deliver the energy through the needles, which is absorbed by the subdermal layers of your skin. Your body responds to this energy by creating fibroblasts, which are cells that create the extracellular matrix, as well as collagen.
Between the microneedling and radiofrequency energy, your skin essentially rebuilds its support network from within, which leaves you with a much tighter and smoother surface area.
The Morpheus8 difference
While we’ve explained why microneedling with radiofrequency energy is so effective, let’s take a quick look at why we chose the Morpheus8. This technology features several benefits, including:
- Deep penetration — 4,000 microns, plus an additional 1,000 microns in the thermal profile
- Color-blind technology — the system is effective on all skin types, including darker tones
- Uniformity — the combined technology offers more uniform results
- Minimal surface damage
Each Morpheus8 treatment takes about an hour and you’re free to get on with your day afterward since there’s no downtime. Your skin may experience some redness, but this effect is usually short-lived.
As for the number of treatments you may need, we can determine that during your evaluation, but most patients benefit from 1-3 sessions. Once you’ve completed your Morpheus8 treatments, your skin will gradually improve, with optimal results in 6-12 weeks.
