OK, so you were kind of into The Matrix trilogy back at the turn of the new century, so Morpheus to you is the Lawrence Fishburne character leading the fight against the Machines.
Your skin says it’s time to move on; that was 20 years ago, after all. Your skin is more interested in Morpheus8, a space-age skin revitalization treatment offered by Dr. Kearney is his San Diego practice.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is the most advanced fractional resurfacing treatment available. It combines microneedling, radiofrequency energy, and fractional resurfacing into one awesome treatment. Morpheus8 is the first and only full-body fractional technology for subdermal adipose remodeling. Morpheus8 gets its name thanks to its ability to morph the skin’s building blocks to contour the face and body.
What are the key benefits with Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 delivers much of the contouring you can expect with a facelift without any incisions. Here are some benefits of these treatments:
- Increased collagen production
- Quicker results
- Minimizes acne scarring
- Reduces wrinkles
- Fades stretch marks
- Reduces large pores
- Shorter treatment times
- No downtime
- Can be used on all skin tones
How does Morpheus8 work?
The Morpheus8 handpiece delivers typical microneedling through the microneedles in the handpiece, but the penetration depth of these needles is sufficient enough to enter the dermis layer of the skin. When the needles reach their target depth, the tips deliver a pulse of RF energy. This energy heats the dermis. When the body senses heat in the dermis layer, it assumes there has been a wound so it initiates a wound-healing response. This involves remodeling all existing collagen in the area, and then beginning the production of new collagen. Since collagen provides the skin’s structural support latticework, this instantly tightens the skin and then the increased collagen continues to build your results.
Your results aren’t instant. You’ll have some redness and slight swelling across the treatment areas. You’ll see visible contouring and skin texture changes in 2-4 weeks, but your collagen production continues to ramp up for up to 6 months.
