If you’re reading this, chances are you have already heard of Morpheus8 by Inmode. Morpheus8 is a skin-tightening procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. It is very different than traditional microneedling because once the needles are in the skin an RF current is sent from one needle to the next to transform and contour the face via subdermal adipose remodeling. It targets the deeper layers of the skin to generate remarkable collagen production and skin tightening and smoothing. It is safe, FDA-approved and extremely effective.
You will be numbed up for 45 minutes prior to the procedure. Most clients do well with topical numbing, alone, but we also offer nerve blocks for clients who would be better served by this option. Either way, you will be comfy (the beauty of being trained as an anesthesiologist)! The day of treatment, you will be pink, but the next day you may wear a mineral makeup to cover any residual pinkness. You will need to protect yourself from the sun for at least two weeks (but you should already be doing this!).
Most clients notice improvement in skin tone and texture within a few days, but the best results will occur approximately three months following the last treatment. It is recommended to have three treatments spaced roughly one month apart.
Again, since we are creating collagen, the results are essentially permanent, but you may desire a yearly maintenance treatment to “keep the tank full”.
Face, neck, décolleté. It may cause decreased hair growth, so we cannot RF microneedle over areas men desire to maintain facial hair.
PlasmaPen™ is also known as fibroblasting. Fibroblasts are the lovely cells in the body that create collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid (yay!). The PlasmaPen™ ionizes gas in the atmosphere to create an arc of plasma which, when it comes into contact with the skin causes contraction and tightening and also stimulates the fibroblasts to do their thing.
Your skin will be numbed with a topical numbing agent. The PlasmaPen™ device is brought within one millimeter of the skin, but does not actually touch it. The plasma arc touches the skin and creates a "dot" of microtrauma that stimulates the skin cells. There is usually no bleeding and no open wound. You will have swelling for a couple days and the carbon crust "dots" for a few days longer. Once the carbon crusts fall off, you will need to be extremely vigilant to protect your new, baby skin from sun exposure. The treatment price also includes an AnteAGE stem cell aftercare kit to aid in recovery.
You may see some tightening immediately, but the primary results will be realized in three months when the new collagen and elastin are created. Often just one treatment will yield the desired results, but occasionally a second treatment will be desired.
Since we are stimulating your body's own collagen and elastin, the results are permanent! That being said, you will continue to age and new lines and skin laxity will form over time.
Anywhere! Some of the more popular areas are the eyes (aka non-surgical blepharoplasty or eye lift), neck (non-surgical neck lift or neck tightening), jowls/lower face and loose skin on knees and elbows. Just use your imagination!
PDO stands for polydioxanone. Quite literally, a PDO thread is a type of surgical suture, which has been around for over 50 years. It was discovered that when inserted into human tissue, PDO causes collagen and elastin production. It can also cause increased skin regeneration, tissue adhesion and the breakdown of cellulite. As such, these threads can be used to tighten, plump, lift and anchor skin. There are two basic thread types that really should be under two different headings because they have two completely distinct actions. The first type is a smaller thread that—when many are used in one area—create plumping and filling. The second is a larger thread used--a lot more sparingly--for lifting. Accordingly, there are very different indications for each thread type.
You will be numbed up with some local anesthetic (think: dental office numbing). It feels odd more than anything, with minimal pain. It takes only a few minutes and there is virtually no downtime.
Results are INSTANTANEOUS. Aside from a small insertion site (think: a drop of blood), you will look amazing and rejuvenated IMMEDIATELY. It is possible to have a small amount of bruising afterward, but this is usually less than with the neurotoxins.
Again, results vary, but you can expect them to last from 6-18 months or even longer as the thread is absorbed by your body and replaced with collagen and elastin. In general, the smaller, filler threads have longer lasting results. The results from lifting threads usually last anywhere from six months to one year. Please never forget that this is NOT a facelift; this is a subtle rejuvenation. People will notice that you look more awake and youthful, but they won’t know why. It’ll be our little secret. You’re welcome.
Again, where CAN’T you get it? We’re talking face (acne scars, smokers lines, saggy cheeks, jowls, nasolabial folds, eleven lines), neck, abdomen, crepe-y knee skin, "lip flip" to name only a few.
Hyperdilute Radiesse is created by mixing Radiesse with saline to create a thinner consistency. This allows us to use Radiesse for its biostimulatory properties rather than for its volumizing properties. The suspension of dilute Radiesse can then be injected in a larger area to create skin tightening and/or subtle volume (depending on dilution ratio and the area we choose to inject).
There is minimal discomfort during the actual procedure. You will have some slight swelling immediately following which will resolve over the first few days as it is primarily a result of the saline.
The skin-tightening results will be most visible 3-4 months following injection. You may desire a few sessions spaced a few months apart.
We are generating collagen and elastin, so the results will last 12-18 months and often even longer.
The neck is the most common area, but it can be used in hip dips, face and hands, as well!
PDO stands for polydioxanone. A PDO thread is a type of surgical suture, which has been around for over 50 years. It was discovered that when inserted into human tissue, PDO causes collagen and elastin production. It also leads to increased skin regeneration, tissue adhesion and the breakdown of cellulite. As such, these threads can be used to plump and tighten skin. Smooth PDO threads are small and fine (similar to a strand of hair) and range in length from 1mm to 2.5 inches.
You will have some topical numbing cream placed on the treatment area for 15-30 minutes. The procedure itself only takes about 10-15 minutes. You may have a small amount of localized swelling and redness for a day or two, but this is fairly minimal and should not interfere with social activities. You will generally require three to four (3-4) treatments to achieve optimal results.
You can expect to see results after a few months and a few treatments.
After a few treatments, as your body absorbs the thread and replaces it with collagen and elastin, you can anticipate results that can last 12-18 months and often even longer. (As with anything, as we age, we will likely need to combat gravity with some maintenance treatments.)
Again, where CAN’T you get it? They can be used to help define the borders of the lips, to smooth fine lines, to tighten loose skin, to un-crepe crepe-y skin, and to improve the appearance of depressed scars and dimpled skin amongst many other things.
