A traditional, surgical facelift does create a younger look to your face by reducing sagging skin on the cheeks and jawline, effectively erasing wrinkles and lax skin that make you look aged and tired.
But, a surgical facelift requires incisions, blood loss, and a long recovery. It can take up to a year for minor swelling, bruising, numbness, and tightness to resolve.
Morpheus8 offers a viable, non-surgical alternative. Offered by board-certified dermatologist Vicki Rapaport, MD, and the experienced team at Rapaport Dermatology in Beverly Hills, California, the innovative technology of Morpheus 8 by Inmode combines microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy to smooth wrinkles, tighten skin, and help you look younger — all without surgery. Discover this new non-surgical facelift everyone is talking about, and find out how you can benefit.
Morpheus8 radically combines two proven anti-aging therapies into one simple treatment.
Microneedling stimulates new cells
The microneedling aspect of the device uses a collection of tiny needles to create micropuncture wounds on the surface of your skin. These wounds are invisible to the naked eye, but stimulate your body’s natural healing response. As a result, you produce fresh, new collagen in an attempt to repair these puncture wounds.
Collagen is a protein that strengthens your skin and keeps it looking youthful and resilient. When new collagen develops in the weeks following a microneedling treatment, more elastic cells replace older ones. For you, that means firmer, smoother skin with less noticeable lines and wrinkles.
Radiofrequency heals deeply
Radiofrequency energy isn’t a new anti-aging treatment. When used alone, apart from microneedling, it penetrates deep below the surface layers of your skin to stimulate collagen production. Radiofrequency is gentle and, unlike lasers, doesn’t rely on potentially damaging heat energy to work.
Effectiveness of combined treatments
Morpheus8 combines the best of both microneedling with radiofrequency energy. The treatment allows radiofrequency to treat deep layers of your skin to achieve more significant anti-aging effects that last.
Depending on your skin’s condition and your goals, Morpheus8 tightens loose skin and improves wrinkles in just a few visits, so you look younger and more vibrant, with long-lasting results.
Scientifically proven to boost your look
When microneedling and radiofrequency energy is combined, it’s called fractionated radiofrequency energy and has been scientifically proven to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen. Your cells also rebuild in response to the treatment, so they have a plumper appearance and reduce in laxity.
The Morpheus8 system also uses bipolar radiofrequency energy, compared to most other systems that use monopolar radiofrequency energy. Bipolar technology is safe for all skin types and produces little to no damage to your skin's surface.
Another benefit of radiofrequency treatment is that it poses little risk of post-treatment hyperpigmentation (discoloration), which is common with other skin resurfacing treatments.
A practical alternative to surgery
Morpheus8 is FDA-approved and safe. Like a facelift, it can reduce the appearance of skin sagging around your neck, chin, and jowls. Wrinkles and lines minimize without having to endure incisions, blood loss, and anesthesia.
Morpheus8 treatments offer the following benefits:
- Exceptionally smooth, uniform effect
- Deep fractional treatment
- Little to no damage to your skin
- Little to no downtime after treatment
- Long-lasting results
Morpheus8 is safe on all skin types, too. A facelift is not the only way to restore a youthful appearance and resolve sagging, wrinkled skin. Morpheus8 can help.
