Aging skin can drastically decrease an individual’s comfort and self-confidence as they get older. Naturally decreasing skin laxity will also lead to the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes and mouth. With newly developed, cutting-edge technology to treat premature aging and acne scarring, patients no longer have to undergo facial plastic surgery to combat the effects of ageing. Now you can have younger, more vibrant skin with the safe and effective treatment Morpheus 8, provided by Dr. David A. Baird, M.D.
Morpheus 8 Technology
Morpheus 8 is the revolutionary application of radiofrequency and microneedling that focuses on the harder-to-reach layers of the skin. This process boosts the skin’s collagen production and tightens the skin to create a more youthful, healthy appearance. Morpheus 8 can be utilized anywhere on the body to remodel the subdermal fat, including the abdomen, neck, and face.
Morpheus 8 is mostly pain-free and minimally invasive, unlike plastic surgery, with only a few patients experiencing tenderness after their treatment. Patients may show signs of swelling or bruising along the treated areas and are encouraged to use ice the area and rest.
For many, there is nominal downtime, with most patients immediately returning to their regular lives. With sessions that last about an hour to an hour and a half that only need to be repeated about one to three times a year, Morpheus 8 is perfect for those with busy lives who want glowing skin on the go.
Good Candidates for Morpheus 8
The application of Morpheus 8 can target many issues, including neck jowls, frown lines, wrinkles, and bags under the eyes. Anyone experiencing noticeable signs of aging or acne scars can benefit from treatment.
Most patients are between 30 to 55 years old. Morpheus 8 can be used on all skin tones and types, with darker skin tones having a slight risk of hyperpigmentation. Morpheus 8 is able to permanently boost the skin, stimulating collagen production in treated areas, but it cannot stop the overall aging process.
Morpheus 8 Results
Up to three sessions of Morpheus 8 are needed at a time to get the best results, depending on the patient’s specific concerns and treatment plan. Visible results can begin to appear in as little as a few days, but it is projected that final results will not begin to appear for at least three weeks.
Patients who have gotten Morpheus 8 treatments often see their results diminishing after a year. It is recommended to schedule another appointment at this time to continue to experience the many benefits of boosted collagen production and skin laxity.
