One of the earliest, most common signs of aging is skin laxity. Loose skin is responsible for many other signs of aging, including creases, lines, folds, and wrinkles. Topical products do very little to address skin laxity, which is why when you notice this sign of aging, you need a solution, and we have it. At Le Beau Visage Medical Spa in Frisco, TX, we offer Morpheus8, the ultimate skin tightening treatment that can transform your appearance.
What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a skin tightening treatment designed by Inmode, a reputable brand in the aesthetic and cosmetic industry that creates revolutionary devices that can combat the signs of aging and improve the appearance with natural, non-invasive methods.
This device uses radiofrequency energy to remodel existing collagen and tighten the skin in a completely natural way, and it doesn’t use any surgical techniques, incisions, or invasive measures. There’s no pain and no downtime, just results.
What Areas Can It Treat?
Morpheus8 is most commonly used to treat the face. Your face begins to show the signs of aging, and because you look in the mirror daily, those signs of aging become most apparent and noticeable, and they also are most likely draining your confidence. However, skin laxity, collagen, and elastin loss are not just limited to the face. This protein loss also begins to affect different areas of the body.
If you’ve noticed loose skin on different areas of the body, there is a solution, and that solution is a Morpheus8. You can treat as a few or as many areas as you choose, but your results will be the same: tighter, younger-looking skin. A consultation with one of our experts will enable us to create a treatment plan that’s right for you.
How Does It Work?
This device uses a combination of bursts of radiofrequency energy as well as skin needling to address aging from multiple levels. One of the most common reasons for many of the signs of aging, including skin laxity, volume loss, and lines and wrinkles, stems back to collagen production. As you age, your body produces less collagen and elastin, two essential proteins responsible for maintaining youthful skin.
Targeting Aging At Its Source
When your body makes less of these proteins with every year that you age, you’ll start to notice the signs of aging affecting your skin in more noticeable ways. Skin laxity is one of the most common signs of aging, which is just a technical term for loose skin. When your skin isn’t as tight and firm as it used to be, skin laxity is to blame. It all stems back to your collagen and elastin loss, but this treatment can change everything.
Morpheus8 uses a combination of skin needling techniques and bursts of powerful radiofrequency energy to tighten and transform the skin. This dual technology platform uses a device that will stimulate collagen and elastin production in the deeper layers of the skin. The result is natural skin tightening that occurs in the weeks following the treatment process.
What Happens During a Treatment?
Once you have an area in mind with loose skin that you simply want to improve, you can take the first step and schedule your consultation. We will evaluate your problem areas in person and then create your personalized treatment plan. We will ensure that you are a good candidate for Morpheus8 by reviewing your problem areas, medical history, and ultimate aesthetic goals. Once you are confirmed as a good candidate, we will schedule your treatment.
On the day of your treatment, you’ll arrive at our office, and your technician will cleanse your treatment area and then apply a topical numbing solution to the skin. This numbing solution will numb the entire treatment area so that you don’t feel any discomfort during the session.
While the needles penetrate your skin and the device delivers short, powerful, and targeted bursts of radiofrequency energy to your problem areas, you can simply lay back and relax and enjoy this pain-free yet effective treatment process.
Since this device doesn’t involve the use of any incisions, surgical techniques, anesthesia, or medications, you can resume your normal daily activities once your treatment is over. You can drive yourself to and from your appointment, and you won’t have to take time off of work. You won’t have to plan around downtime, a lengthy recovery, or post-treatment pain. Your technician will review a list of aftercare instructions with you once your treatment is over.
These may include directives as to which products to avoid and apply in the days following your treatment to both comfort your skin, and enhance your results. Additionally, you may be provided with instructions like staying out of the sun and avoiding applying makeup and products for a specific amount of time. Other than some minimal aftercare directives, you will be free to go about your day without significant interruption to your routine.
Frequently Asked Questions
When Will I See Results?
Some patients notice immediate results following their treatment due to the instant collagen contraction in the deeper layers of the skin that result from radiofrequency energy and the way that it remodels existing collagen. However, the best results are most visible within three weeks of your treatment. Your body will respond to both the needling technique and radiofrequency energy by enacting a healing response.
This healing response will result in increased collagen and elastin production. In the weeks following your treatment, you will see an improvement in your appearance, as lines and wrinkles begin to fade, your skin texture improves, and your skin looks and feels tighter and more useful.
Will I Need Multiple Treatments?
Some patients are happy with their results after one treatment; others need a series of treatments to achieve their desired results. It all depends on your specific goals, and since every patient is different, it’s important that you schedule a consultation so that we can evaluate your specific areas of concern and create the right treatment plan inclusive of the number of sessions you should schedule to achieve the best possible results.
Know that when you trust our experts and schedule the recommended number of treatments, you will see a visible change in your skin. It will get tighter, your confidence will increase, and you will be amazed at how powerful your body is. Your body is fully capable of healing your skin and restoring youth, it just needs a little help, and that’s exactly what the Morpheus8 device is designed to do.
Can It be Combined With Other Treatments?
This treatment pairs well with other aesthetic treatments. We can create a customized treatment plan for your skin that includes sessions with this skin-tightening treatment as well as other skin-perfecting and anti-aging treatments. We want to help you reach each and every one of your aesthetic goals, and will take every step necessary to do so. Your confidence in your appearance is our top priority.
Am I a Candidate?
One of the reasons that we have chosen a Morpheus8 to deliver skin tightening treatment is that it is not only safe and effective, but it can be used on all different skin types and tones. Many of the skin tightening treatments in the past have excluded darker skin tones due to the resulting post-treatment hyperpigmentation. In the past, if you wanted tighter skin, you’d have to trade that tighter skin for hyperpigmentation.
Some patients simply aren’t willing to live with hyperpigmentation, and now, there’s no concern. Darker skin tones can safely schedule his treatment without worrying about post-treatment hyperpigmentation and instead can achieve all the benefits of Morpheus8 without worrying about anyway side effects or adverse reactions.
As always, the best way to confirm whether this treatment is right for you is by scheduling an initial consultation with one of our experts who can evaluate your skin in person and make treatment recommendations.
