I’ve been hearing a lot lately about Morpheus8. How does it work and what makes it so great?

Morpheus8 is radiofrequency (RF) microneedling that is entirely different from basic microneedling (which works primarily by mechanical trauma and penetrates only about half the depth of Morpheus8). Morpheus8 has 24 gold-plated pins that produce an RF pulse once in the skin. The needles are insulated so the energy is generated only at the tip of the needle—deep in the skin and not at the surface where it can be seen. This means less downtime! Skin is sometimes a bit pink, but may be covered with makeup after 24 hours. Many people go to work the next day.

Unlike many offices, we numb you up so well that you hardly feel the treatment. Most clients have a full conversation during the procedure. The depth of the needles can be adjusted from 1 to 4 mm depending on what we aim to accomplish. At 3-4 mm we can melt fat (think jowls and double-chin). At 1-2 mm we generate collagen. The RF pulse tricks the cells into thinking they are being injured, which triggers cytokines and growth factors to begin tissue regeneration and collagen production. This results in decreased wrinkles, smile lines, jowls, marionette lines and under-eye bags and circles. It improves skin texture and decreases crepiness. For most people, it takes anywhere from 5-20 years off your face. And/or neck! That's right: buh-bye turkey neck!

Many clients begin to notice a glow even only one month after the first treatment, but the ideal plan is to complete a series of three treatments, spaced one month apart. The results are permanent, but you will keep aging (I know, I know: we're working on fixing that...), so we recommend one treatment annually to maintain your incredible lifted and tightened results.
