Fractionated Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling
Johnson City TN Medical Spa
Microneedling with RF
For decades, facelifts were the only surefire way to tighten sagging skin and recover a more youthful appearance. Unfortunately, these came with both physical and financial costs, requiring a significant investment in surgery and recovery time. And even then, the results were not always optimum, with facial skin being pulled taut over the skull.
However, advancements in non-surgical techniques now allow you to improve the elasticity and health of your skin, resulting in a rejuvenated, more youthful appearance without the nip and tuck. InMode’s Morpheus8 utilizes a unique combination of microneedling and fractionated radiofrequency (RF) energy to repair and tighten skin.
Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, uses tiny, sterile needles to stimulate collagen production and repair skin. Combining simultaneous RF treatment, the Morpheus 8 painlessly tightens skin, reduces wrinkles, improves complexion and texture, contours jawline, and renews deep layers of the skin with no surgery and almost no patient downtime.
WHAT IS MORPHEUS8?
MORPHEUS8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks will reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Morpheus8 can be used on any areas that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal. The
most commonly treated areas include the lower face and neck. Areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Depending on your Morpheus8 treatment regime you can expect to have between 1-3 sessions.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically after three weeks, the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF FRACTIONATED ENERGY?
Fractionated RF energy is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen and fat. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime
CAN ANYONE USE MORPHEUS8?
The benefit of Morpheus8’s color blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types. The unique properties allow even darker tones to be treated.
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF RF ENERGY?
RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalize the collagen. The treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.
CAN THIS BE USED IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?
Yes, Morpheus8 can be used in the same treatment session or a few days after other treatments.
WHEN CAN I PUT MAKE-UP ON AFTER TREATMENT?
Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week depending on treatment parameters.
WHAT KIND OF POST PROCEDURE CARE IS REQUIRED?
Patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad-spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing their future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process.
