Science has led to the development of some highly advanced cosmetic treatments, and one that’s quickly gaining popularity due to its effectiveness at turning back the clock is Morpheus8 RF Microneedling.
To understand how Morpheus8 RF Microneedling treats the symptoms of aging, we first have to know what collagen is. Naturally produced by the body, collagen is a protein that plays a vital role in the repair and rejuvenation of tissue. Unfortunately, collagen production slows down as we age, which is why our skin becomes more wrinkled and saggier the older we get.
A non-invasive procedure, Morpheus8 RF Microneedling uses a combination of microneedling and controlled radiofrequency energy to heat the tissue layers under the skin. This reinvigorates collagen production in said tissue, in turn resulting in the following effects:
1. Firmer skin
The newly produced collagen does what collagen is designed to do: repair and rejuvenate tissue to make your skin firmer, stronger, and more elastic. Furthermore, Morpheus8 RF Microneedling continues to stimulate the production of collagen and the similarly helpful protein elastin for several months post-procedure, allowing you to enjoy toned skin long after the end of your session.
2. Smoother skin
The regenerative effects of collagen enhance the texture of the skin to give it a smoother, fresher look and feel. It can even improve the appearance of stretchmarks and scars.
3. Clearer skin
The sun’s UV rays are harmful to the skin, so much so that prolonged exposure to sunlight can prematurely age skin and even cause skin cancer. Thankfully, collagen corrects sun damage and other types of skin injuries that lead to unsightly blemishes such as dark spots. Therefore, you can expect clearer, more radiant skin after your Morpheus8 RF Microneedling session.
4. Reduced risk of the formation of dark spots
While laser treatments are generally safe, they are more likely to lead to dark skin discoloration such as Melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, especially where people with darker skin tones are concerned. Morpheus8 RF Microneedling doesn’t lead to such side effects.
In addition to the above benefits, Morpheus8 RF Microneedling is also a safe and convenient procedure with minimal downtime. Patients leave the clinic with what resembles moderate sunburn, but this lasts only a few hours. Patients can go back to work the day after the procedure.
