Morpehus8 RF Microneedling in Westlake & Cleveland, OH
As you age, your skin loses its elasticity, in large part due to a natural decrease in your body’s production of collagen. If you are interested in a treatment that rejuvenates the skin, you can benefit from RF (radiofrequency) microneedling. This is a non-surgical procedure designed to stimulate new collagen production to achieve skin with better tone and texture.
For his microneedling patients, Dr. Joyesh Raj uses Morpheus8, the most respected technology in radiofrequency microneedling available today. It is the deepest microneedling treatment approved by the FDA, with needles that can penetrate the skin up to 8 millimeters. Morpheus8 also comes with different sized handpieces, making it appropriate to treat areas of the skin that are both large and small, including the face, abdomen, arms and knees.
Benefits of Morpheus8 RF Microneedling
While the top benefit of RF microneedling is the skin tightening, this minimally invasive procedure is also known to address a variety of flaws on the skin, including:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Stretch marks and cellulite
- Scars/acne scars
- Age spots
- Enlarged pores
How Microneedling Works
The Morpheus8 handpiece features dozens of miniature needles, which make a series of tiny puncture wounds. While these micro-wounds do not cause any significant damage to your skin, they do prompt your body to boost its production of collagen and elastin. In turn, this extra supply of proteins adds youthful volume to the skin.
The radiofrequency is a powerful addition to this treatment because it further increases collagen production. Furthermore, because the warmth from the RF energy reaches deeper beneath the skin, this helps to make the skin even smoother and less wrinkly.
Safety of Morpheus8
Dr. Raj is pleased to say that RF microneedling is an extremely safe skin care treatment with minimal risks for complications. Better still, it is a great treatment for people of all skin tones and types: certain comparable treatments are not advised for people with darker complexions since they may cause hyperpigmentation.
You may not be a good candidate for Morpheus8 if your skin is prone to scarring, you have cold sores or other skin infections, you are pregnant or nursing or you are undergoing chemotherapy. During a consultation, Dr. Raj reviews your candidacy to determine if you are a suitable candidate for treatment with Morpheus8.
Morpheus8 Recovery and Results
You will not experience downtime after a microneedling treatment, so you will be able to return to work and other daily activities as soon as you leave our office. Your skin will probably look red and irritated (similar to a sunburn) for a few days, so you may decide to limit your social interactions until that has improved.
After one day, you can begin to apply makeup to help conceal any bruising and irritation. Be sure to apply sunscreen before leaving the house since sun exposure can harm your sensitive skin.
Results from Morpheus8 are not immediate since collagen production increases over time. Therefore, it may be a few weeks before you start to notice changes to your skin. Peak results usually manifest a few months after your treatment. Most people choose to undergo multiple microneedling sessions (spaced at least 30 days apart) to maximize the benefits.
