Even with the best skincare regimen, your skin gradually loses elasticity and firmness as you get older. There’s only so much topical treatments can do, and that loss of firmness contributes to sagging skin, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
The good news? You don’t have to settle for lines and wrinkles that make you look older than you feel. Morpheus8 is a revolutionary treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to revitalize and tighten your skin.
Vicki Rapaport, MD, and our team at Rapaport Dermatology of Beverly Hills offer this cutting-edge aesthetic procedure at our medspas in Beverly Hills and Culver City, California. Here’s what you need to know about the key benefits of Morpheus8 for more youthful-looking skin.
1. Deep fractional remodeling
Morpheus8 stands out for its ability to deliver deep fractional remodeling to your skin. Microneedling creates tiny punctures on the surface of your skin, and RF energy heats the deeper layers.
With Morpheus8, microneedling and RF treatment come together to target precise areas deeper within the layers of your skin. This combination stimulates natural collagen and elastin production, two essential proteins that provide structure and elasticity. The result is skin remodeling that makes it tighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking over time.
2. A versatile solution for a variety of treatment areas
Another significant benefit of Morpheus8 is its versatility. Although facials are one of the most common treatments we do, it’s not limited to your face. Morpheus8 treatment areas include your:
Thanks to Morpheus8's customizable depth settings and interchangeable needle tips, we can tailor your treatment to your skin’s specific needs. Targeting different skin depths makes it simple to revitalize your skin, whether you want to improve skin laxity on your face or tighten sagging skin elsewhere on your body.
3. Minimal downtime and long-lasting results
Morpheus8 is minimally invasive. That means it offers shorter downtimes and faster recovery compared to traditional surgical procedures.
In general, most people can resume their regular activities within a few days after treatment. Microneedling creates relatively small micro-injuries, promoting faster healing and minimal discomfort.
Last but not least, Morpheus8 provides long-lasting results. The treatment triggers collagen and elastin production that continues to improve your skin quality and tightness over time.
You may notice improvements immediately after your procedure, but the full benefits develop in the following weeks and months. Depending on your aesthetic goals, we may recommend maintenance treatments to sustain and optimize your results over the long term.
With its dramatic results and minimal downtime, Morpheus8 has revolutionized the field of nonsurgical skin tightening. Schedule an appointment at Rapaport Dermatology of Beverly Hills to find out if it’s right for you.
