Morpheus8 for wrinkles and loose skin helps those seeking skin tightening and improved skin texture in Ann Arbor Michigan, Detroit, Lansing and surrounding areas. Morpheus8 designed by INMODE uses technology that combines microneedling and radiofrequency to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin to promote collagen production and cell renewal. This treatment is minimally invasive and helps to rejuvenate and tighten the skin. Microneedling causes micro injury to the skin which stimulates the body to create collagen and elastin, and with the radiofrequency it is able to penetrate deeper layers of the skin to stimulate tightening and collagen remodeling.
This fractional treatment can be used in multiple areas including face, neck, abdomen, knees, arms, and thighs. It is exceptionally beneficial in helping with fine line reduction, wrinkles, scars, large pores, signs of aging, and skin laxity.
What should I expect at my appointment?
At your appointment, your practitioner will discuss your main areas of concern. You will have about 30-45 minutes of numbing time to make the treatment more comfortable for you. The treatment itself ranges for about 20-45 minutes based on the area being treated. Your practitioner will assess the areas and select depths and energy levels specific to your needs.
How long will my results last?
After collagen is created, your body will naturally break it down overtime. Sun protection and a healthy lifestyle including avoiding smoking will help results to last longer. Your baseline (prior to treatment ) state will also affect how long your results will last. On average a treatment may be beneficial yearly to maintain results.
What is the downtime for Morpheus8?
Typically, we prepare patients for about three days of downtime. We see that in the first three days after treatment the skin can be red, slightly irritated and swollen. The following days the skin texture might be rough and a grid like pattern may be visible when looking closely as the skin is healing. At this point patients are usually able to return to their normal day to day activities.
What is the difference between Microneedling and the Morpheus8?
Regular Microneedling does not have the radiofrequency component that aids in deeper penetration and powerful skin tightening.
How many treatments are required?
Based on the area being treated and patient goals, your practitioner can recommend a plan that best suits you which may range from 3-6 treatments. Typically areas get substantial benefit after 3.
How much does the Morpheus8 cost?
Each treatment can range from $900-$1500 based on size of treatment area.
