A non-surgical treatment which stimulates collagen production and tightens and smooths sagging skin
We’d all love our skin to stay tight and plump. But, unfortunately, that is not the reality for most of us. As we age, the skin in our bodies will inevitably begin to sag and dry. Luckily, it’s no longer impossible for us to get rid of these problems, without going under the knife. With cutting-edge, minimally invasive techniques such as Morpheus8 and Forma, you can now tighten sagging skin, even out skin texture, remove stretch marks, and even contour fat. All these benefits without any downtime or pain.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus 8 is a cutting edge technology that enhances the benefits of micro-needling with radiofrequency-generated heat. Like micro-needling, it promotes collagen and tightens the skin. But the added radiofrequency heat allows it also to contour the fat underneath the skin. This treatment penetrates deep and sculpts the face and body without the need for invasive cosmetic surgery. At lighter settings, this device is excellent for evening out the skin’s texture and tone. Morpheus8 is a safe and effective treatment used to erase mild scarring, wrinkles, pigment issues, stretch marks, and other skin imperfections.
How does Morpheus8 work?
Morpheus8 uses a simultaneous process that penetrates the skin while applying heat. In particular, it uses microneedles to penetrate the sub-dermal layer of the skin. These small puncture wounds promote collagen production and tighten the skin. Throughout the process, Morpheus8 applies heat using radiofrequency which allows the heat to reach the skin’s sub-dermal layers. These two processes work together to encourage collagen production and destroy fat. In traditional radiofrequency the heat must penetrate several layers of skin, before reaching the sub-thermal layer which would reduce its effectiveness. Morpheus8 makes this process more effective, simultaneously using puncture wounds and heat.
What are the benefits of Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is an FDA approved treatment that offers a variety of improvements to the skin. Its main benefit is skin tightening. As a byproduct, you can also contour the subdermal fat. Morpheus8 can penetrate deep layers of the skin and destroy the fat underneath. It also benefits from micro-needling, which reduces wrinkles, stretch marks, scars, and fat lines. One of the most significant benefits of this treatment is that it comes with little pain and discomfort. The treatment can be administered in an out-patient setting by licensed professionals.
What is Forma Skin TIghtening Treatment?
Forma is a skin procedure that brings years back into your skin by increasing collagen production using heat and radiofrequency. Forma contours, lifts, and tightens aging skin to restore its youthful glow without the need for surgery. Imagine an iron sliding on your skin to remove folds, lines, and bags.
How does Forma work?
Forma uses a heated wand device that slides on your skin to remove deeper wrinkles and restores lost facial volume. It uses an auto-adjusting thermal radiofrequency for deep and even tissue stimulation. Unlike a regular facelift, Forma is non-intrusive and painless.
What Is Microneedling With Radio Frequency?
Microneedling is a popular skin treatment that stimulates collagen production by creating small, superficial puncture wounds on the skin. Radiofrequency produces heat that’s scientifically proven to stimulate collagen production and rebuild fat. This energy is safe and has been used for cosmetic enhancements for over a decade. Morpheus8 and Forma combine these two unique systems to deliver a treatment that penetrates deep into the skin to produce optimal results.
Are there any side effects after Morpheus8 or Forma treatments?
The side effects that result after a treatment from Morpheus8 or Forma are mild and temporary. Visually side effects include minor redness and swelling. In some cases, patients may experience bruising. Another common side effect is tenderness or soreness on and around the treatment area. This pain will generally subside after 2-3 days of treatment. To alleviate soreness and tenderness, you can use over the counter pain medication.
