Morpheus8 RF Microneedling in Scottsdale and Phoenix
Skin laxity is a normal side effect of aging, due to your body’s declining collagen production. Fortunately, rejuvenating your face can be as simple as stimulating new collagen, since this can improve both the texture and tone of your skin. Best of all, these changes can be achieved with a non-invasive treatment: RF (radiofrequency) microneedling.
Dr. Ali Ghafouri, a leading facial plastic surgeon in Arizona, is pleased to now offer Morpheus8, the top-performing RF microneedling treatment. This treatment works well on your face, neck, décolleté and more. Morpheus8 has the longest microneedles currently approved by the FDA, which can reach as deep as 8 millimeters beneath the skin for maximum rejuvenation.
The Benefits of Morpheus8
Morpheus8 is highly successful at producing younger-looking skin. It can treat a variety of cosmetic skin issues simultaneously, such as:
- Loose skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Hyperpigmentation/age spots
- Oversized pores
- Scars (including acne scars)
Who Is a Candidate for Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a non-invasive treatment with minimal risks, making itsafe for most patients. While some skin treatments are not meant for people with darker complexions, Morpheus8 works well on patients of all skin tones. Dr. Ghafouri may recommend other rejuvenation procedures if you have cold sores, scar easily, or are currently pregnant or breastfeeding. During a consultation, we can review your candidacy for Morpheus8 and other treatments.
Morpheus8 Procedure Details
Our Morpheus8 technicians guide the handpiece, featuring dozens of tiny needles, across your skin. These needles make miniature wounds in your skin without causing any substantial superficial harm. However, the mini-wounds are sufficient to cause your body to increase its production of collagen and elastin. Over time, these proteins add youthful fullness to your skin.
Morpheus8 is better than a standard microneedling treatment because the radiofrequency enhances the production of collagen. Additionally, the heat from RF can reach deeper layers of your skin, which makes it extra successful at smoothing the texture of your skin.
Because it is non-invasive, Morpheus8 does not require any downtime. Your skin may appear somewhat red and irritated for a few days, but you are free to resume your normal activities, including work, as soon as your treatment is finished. After 24 hours, you may begin to wear makeup to conceal any lingering redness. Be sure to wear sunscreen anytime you are outdoors because your skin is especially sensitive following treatment.
It generally takes several weeks before you start to see the positive effects of Morpheus8. Results are not instantaneous because your body gradually produces more collagen, which in turn smooths your skin. Best results can be seen about three months after your treatment.
To maximize their results, many patients undergo multiple Morpheus8 treatments, each one spaced at least a month apart. The number of treatments depends on your own cosmetic goals and the preexisting condition of your skin.
