Morpheus8 Shreveport, LA
Morpheus8 is a radio frequency micro-needling treatment. The fractionated radio frequency energy targets deeper layers of skin, contouring the face and the body.
Beneath our skin, our faces and bodies are made up of layer upon layer of skin and fat. Morpheus8 targets these deeper layers, breaking them down and allowing them to reform for a sleeker and more youthful appearance.
How Does Morpheus8 Work?
Morpheus8 does not simply resurface the top layer of skin. The fractionated energy reaches below this top layer into the architecture of the skin, reshaping and resurfacing it at the deepest level of tissue.
During the procedure, your doctor will make microscopic puncture marks in the skin with tiny needles. A topical anesthetic is used to minimize pain and discomfort. This will force the dermis to create new collagen in order to repair itself.
Morpheus8 also delivers heat energy below this superficial layer of skin and remodels the adipose fat in this sub-dermal layer of skin. Morpheus8 is the only treatment that targets this deeper tissue.
The entire procedure will take about 45 minutes. Afterward, your doctor will apply cool compresses to your skin, as well as a physical block sunscreen. Patients are advised to rest the remainder of the day following the procedure.
For several days following the treatment, you should keep the treatment area moisturized.
