Our skin naturally changes as we age.
Blame it on our hormones, or our lack of them. Shifts in our hormone levels are a natural part of aging and contribute to the loss of fat under our skin, a reduction in our collagen levels, and a decrease in our skin’s elasticity. Environmental stresses such as UV light and good old-fashioned everyday stress can take a toll on our body and lead to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles on our face. Habits like smoking compound our hormonal fluctuations and promote our quest for the ultimate anti-aging treatments.
The Anti-Aging Process: Can we turn back time?
While we can’t stop the aging process, we have seen firsthand the benefits of facial fillers such as JUVÉDERM® to add volume, lift and contour, and BOTOX® cosmetic to reduce frown lines and minimize crow’s feet.
But our most popular treatment for overall skin rejuvenation is Morpheus8 and we are proud to be the provider of choice for Morpheus 8® Skin Tightening Procedure by InMode for both men and women in South Miami, Doral, and the neighboring Miami communities.
What is Morpheus 8® Skin Tightening Procedure by InMode?
Morpheus8 is an FDA-cleared non-surgical fractional radiofrequency treatment that targets subdermal layers of your skin and tissue, both on your body and your face. By stimulating collagen production and remodeling, Morpheus8 improves your skin’s appearance and reduces irregularities.
What does Morpheus8 treat?
Morpheus 8® can be used safely on any area of your skin that could benefit from resurfacing and subdermal rejuvenation. The most commonly treated areas include the face, periorbital area, abdomen, thighs, legs, and buttocks.
Through a combination of radiofrequency energy and microneedling, we have found Morpheus8 to effectively treat:
- Acne scarring and other scarring
- Age-related spots
- Bags under the eyes
- Deep lines and creases
- Enlarged pores
- Sagging tissue
- Skin laxity
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage or sun spots
- Uneven or rough skin texture
By harnessing the power of radiofrequency energy which increases collagen production and the impact of radiofrequency waves which encourages cellular regeneration, we can temporarily turn back time.
Can Morpheus8 tighten loose skin on your stomach?
It’s a fact of life. Our abdominal skin loses its elasticity with age and stretches anytime we gain weight, particularly during pregnancy Exercise and losing weight can help tighten loose skin but surgery such as liposuction used to be the only option.
InMode’s Morpheus8 is FDA-approved for both men and women who want abdominal skin-tightening results without surgery. The Morpheus8 treatment can be performed with the same effective results on both large and small areas of the body.
Can Morpheus8 get rid of neck wrinkles?
You can often tell a person’s age by looking at their neck. Even with neck exercises and retinol-based neck creams, neck wrinkles can be a telltale sign of aging. Botox injections can temporarily relax the lines but the effect wears off after a few months.
At South Miami OB-GYN Associates, we have seen the benefits of Morpheus8 on improving the appearance of your neck wrinkles without surgery or significant downtime. Using a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency to stimulate collagen growth and renew the deeper layers of your skin, Morpheus8 can be used on all skin types and can be combined with other treatments to promote better results.
How many Morpheus8 treatments will you need to achieve optimal results?
For optimal results, a series of three treatments within a three-month period is recommended. To prolong the skin tightening effects of Morpheus8, we also recommend avoiding sun exposure and applying sunscreen and moisturizer daily.
Who is a good candidate for Morpheus 8® F Microneedling?
Morpheus 8® is safe and effective for all skin types and is an excellent option for both males and females. The unique combination of microneedling and radiofrequency technology has been proven to stimulate collagen production and improve skin tone, texture and tightness without surgery.
How long does Morpheus 8® last?
The results are often apparent after just a few days and will continue to develop in the three-month period following your procedure. Over time, your skin will feel tighter and more toned, scars will start to lighten and the overall texture of your skin will improve, giving you a more youthful appearance. While each person is unique in their response to Morpheus8, this non-surgical treatment generally lasts for one year.
What does the Morpheus 8® by InMode treatment feel like?
At South Miami OB-GYN Associates, our goal is to help you look good and feel good. Your comfort is our focus which is why we apply a topical anesthetic to your face, neck, or body part of treatment choice for 30-45 minutes to reduce any discomfort associated with the Morpheus8 treatment. In addition, we recommend the addition of ProNox Nitrous Oxide, the grownup version of laughing gas, so you are in control of how much or how little you need. The best part of ProNox is that it wears off quickly so you can drive home immediately after your Morpheus8 treatment.
Once you are effectively numbed, our trained team members simultaneously use a handheld device with fine-grade needles to make tiny punctures in your skin (microneedling) and deliver thermal heat (radiofrequency energy) deep within your skin. The combination of the two promotes the best skin tightening and lifting results.
How long does a Morpheus 8® treatment take?
Once your skin is numb, the treatment itself can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the treated area.
You may have some redness or swelling after the treatment and your skin may feel tighter than usual. But most of our patients experience no downtime and resume normal activities, except strenuous exercise, after treatment.
“I went to a party a month after my first Morpheus8 treatment and received so many compliments on my glowing skin! My neck already looks better and my cheeks have more definition. Can’t wait to see the results after the second and third treatment.”
