What Are the Areas of the Body That Can Be Treated with Morpheus8?

Sagging skin, wrinkles, and dark circles under the eyes are common signs of aging. While many Canadians are interested in ways to tighten their skin and reverse the aging process, some prefer to explore minimally invasive and non-surgical options.

Morpheus8 is a relatively new advancement in anti-aging treatments. Using radio frequencies to tighten the skin, Morpheus8 reduces wrinkles and makes your skin look younger. At Phi Surgery, we are proud to offer this innovative anti-aging technology to our clients.

What Causes Wrinkles?

Your body produces a protein called collagen, which keeps your skin elastic and smooth. However, after the age of 20, collagen production drops off at the rate of around 1% less per year. Less collagen means your skin becomes less elastic, resulting in wrinkles. Additionally, the layer of fat between your skin and bones also thins, making your skin appear saggier.

Excessive sun exposure can also decrease your collagen levels since UV light breaks down the collagen present in your skin. Smoking and regularly using the same facial expressions can also cause wrinkles or creases in your face.

While using moisturizer, diligently wearing sunscreen, and avoiding direct sun exposure can help delay or reduce wrinkles; once you develop them, you may need to investigate anti-aging treatments like Morpheus8.

How Morpheus8 Works

This innovative technology uses heat, needles, and radio frequency to tighten the skin, removing your wrinkles and giving you a more youthful appearance. It combines radiofrequency technology with microneedling for an effective anti-aging treatment.

The combination of heat, 24 tiny needles, and radiofrequency technology targets the deep layers of your skin, stimulating collagen production and the top layer, reducing any scarring from acne with an exfoliating effect.

Which Areas Can Be Treated with Morpheus8?

Although many patients want to treat their faces with Morpheus8, we can also target other areas of the body with wonderful results.

Besides your face, we can use Morpheus8 on your neck, arms, chest, bottom, legs, and stomach. Because this combination treatment is gentler than other options, we can also use it on more sensitive areas, including cheeks and under the eyes.

Whether you want a skin rejuvenation effect that reduces wrinkles, removes discoloration from sun exposure, or lessens the appearance of any skin irregularities caused by stretch marks, acne, or scarring, Morpheus8 can help.

Morpheus8 is a fantastic option for both men and women that can be used on all skin areas, either as a once-off or a long-term treatment to keep your skin smooth and fresh.

What Can Morpheus8 Treat?

Because Morpheus8 can be used all over the face and body, it can treat many skin conditions. Besides reducing wrinkles, we can use Morpheus8 to alleviate any skin condition that makes the skin appear rougher.

Stretch marks are a common target for Morpheus8 treatments. These marks occur after childbirth and after significant weight gain and subsequent weight loss on both men and women.

Another common target is scarring. Whether you cut yourself chopping onions or had a serious injury in the past, Morpheus8 can help to reduce the roughness of the scar tissue, making it less visible.

Patients who suffered from acne in their teens may be self-conscious of any scars left behind. Morpheus8 can target the small spots, smoothing them over and helping you to regain self-confidence.

If you have spent summers in the sun without sunscreen or frequented sunbeds, your skin might have become tough because of the UV exposure. Morpheus? combination treatment can trigger collagen production and tighten your skin to make it healthier and smoother, reducing the sun?s leathery effect.

How Long Does Morpheus8 Last?

Because Morpheus8 prompts collagen production, you may continue to see your skin improve for three months after your treatment. However, Phi Surgery recommends you receive three treatments for optimal results, allowing three to six weeks between appointments for recovery.

Getting Morpheus8 at Phi Surgery

Before receiving your treatment at Phi Surgery, Dr. Gdalevitch uses a topical analgesic to reduce discomfort during the procedure. After applying the cream, she applies the Morpheus8 treatment, which shouldn?t cause more than momentary discomfort.

Although you may not see the full effects for up to three weeks after your treatment, the redness should dissipate by the next day, allowing you to go about your normal business without concern.

Be sure to let Dr. Gdalevitch know about any medications you currently take, particularly if you use any topical creams to treat acne. Although Morpheus8 is a safe procedure for all skin types, you may need to wait if you have recently had surgery. Some patients, including those with certain chronic illnesses or bleeding disorders, may need to consider alternative anti-aging treatments.

Can I Combine Morpheus8 with Other Anti-Aging Treatments?

Morpheus8 can be safely combined with several of our other anti-aging treatments, including adding your plasma (PRP) to the treatment. Because plasma includes a high concentration of platelets from your blood, it can help your skin heal faster from the treatment, speeding up the process. Using PRP also improves results for many people, giving you softer, smoother skin than the Morpheus8 treatment alone.

If you wish to use PRP in your Morpheus8 treatment, Dr. Gdalevitch must draw a small amount of blood and prepare it in a centrifuge, spinning it at high speed. The centrifuge separates the plasma from the rest of the blood.

After applying the Morpheus8 treatment, Dr. Gdalevitch can then apply your PRP to the small holes left by the needles.

You can also use Morpheus8 in combination with our other treatments, including surgical options, Botox, and fillers, although you may need to space them out to allow your skin to heal. At your appointment, ask us what other treatments would be best for your skin type and desired outcome.
