There are more options than ever when it comes to achieving clearer, tighter skin. One of the most effective technologies available for skin remodeling is Morpheus8, a device designed to stimulate the deep tissues of the skin and correct a variety of body skin concerns. If you’re considering Morpheus8, it’s important to seek out a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Andres Sarraga who can help you explore your best options. Here’s what to know about Morpheus8 and what you can expect from treatment.
Morpheus8 BODY is a fractional radiofrequency (RF) device that uses RF energy and gold-coated microneedles to heat the deep layers of the skin. While the microneedles generate controlled wounding in the skin to jumpstart collagen production, they administer bi-polar radiofrequency energy. This specific handpiece for the body generates bipolar 3-D energy delivering a more direct and uniform treatment at multiple levels for optimal contraction the skin and fat reduction. Over time, this causes it to not only build new collagen but to “shrink” and reduce the appearance of laxity, stubborn fat, cellulite, and dimples. Morpheus8 Body can reach depths of up to 8mm and uses a specialized handpiece designed to treat large areas of the body at one time and enables a customized full body procedure.
Morpheus8 comes with a variety of benefits and is one of the best non-surgical ways to contour the body after weight loss or pregnancy. It can also be used to treat the following body concerns:
- Skin laxity
- Stretch Marks
- Stubborn fat
- Crepey skin
Morpheus8 can be used virtually anywhere on the body including the stomach, arms, knees, bra fat, and more, making it a very versatile treatment option. Dr. Sarraga and our team can help you determine the best treatment approach for your goals during a consultation.
After treatment, it’s normal to have some redness and mild swelling. You’ll be given a complete list of aftercare instructions from our team so you know how to care for your skin. It’s most important to keep it moisturized and protected from sun exposure with SPF 30+. Make sure to also avoid exercise or hot environments since this can irritate the skin and exacerbate swelling. You’ll begin to see results in as few as four weeks with an overall improvement in your body’s contours and overall skin quality. It can take around three months for your full results. Most patients benefit from a package of 1-3 treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart for best results – this helps fully treat your concerns and treatment areas.
Morpheus8 can be an integral part of your anti-aging regimen. To learn more, contact Dr. Sarraga and our Aventura, FL office by calling or filling out our online form.
