Several factors can cause our skin to lose its firmness over time, including our diet, stress levels, and lifestyle choices. However, there’s another factor we can’t control, and that’s the natural aging process.
Here’s a simple summary:
As we age, our skin loses its firmness and thickness because our collagen production slows down. While this affects our whole body, it’s particularly noticeable on our faces due to facial movements, exposure to sunlight, and changes in how fat is distributed in our faces.
But what if there was a way to boost collagen production, leading to firmer skin without the need for surgery or long recovery time, and still achieve impressive results?
This is where the Morpheus8 shines.
At Trouvaille Med Spa, in Tinley Park, Illinois, we pride ourselves on creating a welcoming environment for you. We’ve also found that the Morpheus8 skin tightening treatment is a safe and effective solution for your skin tightening needs.
In this blog post, we’ll explore the Morpheus8 treatment. Here’s all you need to know before and after your Morpheus8 treatment.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a non-invasive procedure that combines radiofrequency technology and microneedling. Using the Morpheus8 device, this process includes sending controlled energy via micro-pins into the skin to boost skin tightening and rejuvenation.
Morpheus8 offers a significant advantage to clients by not involving any surgical procedures. This makes it an ideal choice for those seeking to avoid surgery, which has the potential for scarring and extended recovery times. Additionally, it is an effective option for individuals who have previously undergone surgery but continue to experience concerns related to loose skin.
While its primary purpose is skin tightening, Morpheus8 also helps improve the texture of your skin. But how does Morpheus8 achieve all this?
How Does Morpheus8 Work?
Morpheus8 works by using low-frequency electromagnetic waves to generate controlled heat and minimal damage deep within the layers of the skin. Rather than causing harm, this precise and focused approach creates tiny micro-injuries that actually encourage your skin’s natural healing process.
The skin produces new collagen, elastin, and fresh skin cells during healing. These components are crucial for achieving firmer and healthier skin.
What makes this technology truly innovative is its versatility. For instance, research has shown that Morpheus8 is effective in reducing cellulite. Additionally, it’s well-suited for treating small, delicate areas and precise facial contours, thanks to the specialized tips on the device.
What is Morpheus8 Used For?
Morpheus8 can be applied to various parts of the body, such as the face, chest, arms, abdomen, and even knees.
Studies have shown that Morpheus8 is helpful and safe in the following situations:
- Loose skin
- Acne scars or other scars
- Fine lines
- Overall skin texture
Keep in mind that this information is for educational purposes only. The choice of treatment will be based on several factors, such as your goals, overall health, and risk profile.
During your consultation, our medical professionals will determine the best course of action and discuss alternative options to help you achieve your desired outcome.
How Long Do Morpheus8 Results Last?
You’ll likely see results from Morpheus8 fast, but how long they last can vary. Taking good care of your skin after the treatment can make the results last longer. Other factors that contribute to the longevity of your results are your age, the condition of your skin before treatment and your lifestyle.
A general guideline is 12 to 18 months. We recommend a series of 3 treatments initially, to optimize for longevity.
What To Do After Morpheus8
After your treatment, you might see some swelling and redness in the treated area, and you might even notice a slight bruise. Don’t worry; this is normal and will go away quickly.
Rest assured, we have different techniques in place to prevent any discomfort during your procedure so you can feel at ease throughout.
Here are some other things to keep in mind during the post-treatment phase:
- Make sure to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
- Try not to touch your face too much.
- Avoid using hot or steamy water.
- Change your bed sheets, pillowcases, and towels.
- Makeup should not be worn for at least the first 24 hours. Afterwards, if you want to use makeup, make sure to clean your makeup brushes and sponges thoroughly.
- Follow the specific post-treatment instructions given during your consultation because they can be customized based on your medical history and age.
If you see any other serious side effects, report to your treatment provider.
