Morpheus8 (and Embrace)
Procedure: Morpheus8 is a new subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) that fractionally remodels and contours the face and body. Penetrating deep into the skin and fat, this morphs the aging face or body into a more desired smooth and sleek appearance. Morpheus8 has the ability to penetrate deeper into the skin than any other microneedling device, going as deep as 4mm. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks will reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process by boosting collagen production. Patient comfort is a major advantage of this device because of the sharper needles and tiny punctures it causes in the skin without tugging or pulling. Morpheus8 can be used for, but is not limited to treating wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, surgical scars and more.
Embrace is the use of Morpheus8 in concert with FaceTite in order to give the face a more youthful appearance by erasing wrinkles and fine lines. The two devices “embrace” the top and bottom surfaces of the skin by providing radiofrequency which helps to shrink and tighten elastin fibers and generate collagen production.
Post procedure: Depending on the level of treatment needed, you can expect to have between 1-3 sessions with the Morpheus8, usually spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Dr. Gaines will assess your personal needs in order to provide you with a personalized treatment plan. Results will become visible within a few days, but typically take three weeks before they are most noticeable. Improvement continues for up to 3 months after treatment. The affected area usually remains pink for about 24 hours only. Post treatment care consists of moisturizing the treatment area, avoiding direct sun exposure and using a good, broad spectrum sunscreen daily.
Who qualifies: Morpheus8 can be used on any areas that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal, most commonly the face and lower neck. Keep in mind that any areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are also suitable for treatment. Morpheus8 can be used on all skin types and tones.
