The Benefits of Using RF Energy with Microneedling
Since both radio frequency and microneedling techniques impact the collagen-producing centers of the skin, you may be wondering why it helps to use them in combination with each other as a fractionated radio frequency resurfacing technique.
Put simply, while microneedling works on a surface level, radio frequency waves reach much deeper in the skin layers. Addressing deep layers and surface layers leads to more comprehensive results for a variety of skin issues.
Additionally, pairing these two innovative techniques together leads to an increased amount of collagen and elastin protein production as compared to either technique on its own. This results in more effective rejuvenation.
The Morpheus8 treatment is extremely versatile and is capable of helping patients with a myriad of skin concerns, including nasolabial folds, jowling, wrinkles, and fine lines. It can also help address facial fat volume in the midface, the signs of aging in areas with loose skin such as the neck or chest, and acne or surgical scarring.
This treatment is also suitable for all skin types. Other radiofrequency based treatments often have limitations in regards to skin tone. Morpheus8, however, is capable of treating even darker skin tones without high risks of complications.
By incorporating dual handpieces, Morpheus8 can effectively target problem areas ranging from smaller to larger areas of the body. The improvement in collagen production seen with this treatment facilitates long-lasting results that continues to improve over the course of time.
Good Candidates for Morpheus8
Morpheus8 is an excellent treatment option for men and women who want to improve their facial aesthetic using minimally invasive techniques. Ideal candidates for the procedure have visible signs of aging, surgical or acne scars they want to improve. Patients looking to undergo Morpheus8 should also be in good general health and have realistic expectations. Our skin expert will perform an assessment of skin and ask you about your medical history to determine if Morpheus8 is right for you.
The Morpheus8 RF Microneedling Service
You will have to report to Vitalyc about an hour before your fractionated radio frequency resurfacing appointment. Topical numbing cream will be applied to the treatment areas in order to minimize discomfort.
During the treatment session, the Morpheus8 handpeice will be gently pressed against your skin. The needles in the equipment will penetrate your skin; we will be able to control the amount and depth of penetration to achieve the desired results. The radio frequency energy waves will be directed towards the skin tissues at this time.
What to Expect After the Treatment
The treatment may cause minor swelling in the target area, which generally disappears within 24-48 hours. Tiny scabs may develop in the area after the service and it is important to avoid picking at them, as this can cause irritation. These scabs are normal and expected and will fall off on their own after 24-48 hours.
Improvement in the skin tissues occurs gradually over 3-6 months as new collagen and elastin is produced.
How Much Does Morpheus8 Cost?
The cost of Morpheus8 treatments will vary from person to person depending on their unique needs and aesthetic goals. Factors such as the area(s) treated and the number of sessions required to achieve the ideal results are used to determine the associated cost. We will perform an initial assessment of your skin during a consultation in our Dallas,TX, office to determine the extent of treatment required to achieve your ideal look.
