The holiday season is one for which we like to look our best. We may have more social opportunities and are most certainly going to see pictures of ourselves that we didn’t pose for. When this happens, we like to feel good about what we see. If you’re starting preparations for your holiday season, we suggest that you schedule a pre-holiday beauty treatment in the form of Morpheus8.
What is Morpheus8?
This strange-sounding treatment is one of the latest radiofrequency modules to be developed. More than radiofrequency alone, Morpheus8 also involves microneedling. The two together provide fractional resurfacing that stimulates cells to produce more collagen. By delivering radiofrequency energy via tiny needles, deeper layers of the skin are targeted for remodeling.
The Power of Radiofrequency
Most forms of energy produce some degree of heat. Radiofrequency technology heats the skin’s deeper layers, where collagen and elastin act as a foundation for firmness and flexibility. When deeper cells are stimulated to regenerate, the cellular turnover within the epidermis is also accelerated. It’s natural anti-aging at its finest.
Radiofrequency is different than laser energy in that it is milder. The lower frequencies are capable of passing through superficial tissue without causing damage. The target area of radiofrequency is the dermis, where changes can lead to smoother, brighter, even tighter skin. The target area of laser devices is the epidermis, which can be affected to release damaged, discolored cells.
While Morpheus8 is often performed on the face and neck. The stimulation of collagen and elastin reduces the signs of aging and also treats both active acne and acne scars. The procedure can also provide improvement on the abdomen, where tissue can become loose and saggy.
With just one treatment, many people see a noticeable improvement in the appearance of their skin, which is just what we want before a busy season of socializing. The downtime needed after Morpheus8 treatment is minimal. A protective cream such as Aquaphor should be applied to the skin as it heals and sun exposure should be avoided. After healing, which occurs within a few days, sunscreen should be worn daily. Within a few weeks, the full effects of Morpheus8 treatment are visible.
The holidays don’t have to be a time when we forget about our own needs and wants. We can help you sail through this season beautifully. To schedule nonsurgical treatment for facial rejuvenation, call (203) 557-6464.
