It’s completely natural for those of us who take pride in our appearance to gravitate toward cosmetic treatments at one point or another. While there is something to be said about keeping your look 100% natural, time doesn’t pull any punches. The gradual effects of aging can be seen and felt in the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin, and collagen loss. Thankfully, modern aesthetic innovations have made it possible for you to get the treatments you want without compromising your natural look. Is it surgery? No, it’s non-surgical face contouring in the form of the Morpheus8 RF microneedling device. 

This amazing treatment provides effective collagen remodeling with minimal downtime and no additives. Using super-thin needles and radiofrequency technology, the Morpheus8 can give you your youthful glow back without compromising the integrity of your skin! Need we say more? Join us as BodyLase® explores the benefits of choosing the Morpheus8 below.

What’s All the Hype About?

If you’re reading this, you’re likely familiar with microneedling. These procedures involve the use of tiny needles to prick the skin and stimulate collagen production. While effective on its own, microneedling is more beneficial when combined with other treatments. What differentiates Morpheus8 from the traditional microneedling method is its simultaneous use of radiofrequency energy.

Radiofrequency penetrates far deeper into the skin than standard microneedling. This triggers greater collagen and elastin regeneration, which in turn gives you greater results. In fact, a short 30-minute session is often all it takes to give you beautiful results that last for up to three months after treatment!

What Does Morpheus8 Feel Like?

The long-lasting results aren’t the only benefit to trying Morpheus8. The procedure itself is quite tolerable and doesn’t require a major anesthetic, only a topical numbing cream. At BodyLase, we also offer Pronox, which is a natural blend of 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous self-administered analgesia (laughing gas), to help prevent or lessen discomfort. When you’re seated and comfortable, our BodyLase® provider will use the Morpheus8’s handheld device, pressing it onto your treatment area and allowing the minuscule microneedles to perforate the skin. 

Once the needles are in place, they will emit radiofrequency (RF) waves. The energy heats up your skin, creating what can best be described as a “shrinkwrap” effect, tightening your skin and fat below. This amazing process remodels and restructures, giving your former sagging skin a tighter, more radiant appearance.

Is Morpheus8 Better than a Facelift?

Surgery is still king when it comes to making drastic alterations. If you have sagging skin on your jowls or submental area (under the chin), a facelift may be the right call. The Morpheus8 was not designed to dramatically alter the appearance of your face. Rather, this skin tightening system is made for preventing sagging and delivering subtle results that slow the aging process. Ideal candidates are those who are just starting to experience the ravages of age.
