Time for a Spring Touch Up?

In the world of aesthetic medicine, advancements are constantly being made to provide patients with safe, effective, and innovative treatments.

One such breakthrough is Morpheus8 by InMode, a technology that is transforming the field of facial contouring and skin rejuvenation more rapidly than the invention of mousse foundations. With its unique combination of applied science, Morpheus8 is quickly becoming the go-to treatment for individuals looking to improve their skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance on the sly.

At the heart of Morpheus8’s success is the cutting-edge technology, which uses the duality of micro-needling and radiofrequency (RF) energy to target deep layers of the skin. The administration of micro-needling involves the use of tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin, which then stimulates the body’s natural healing process and promotes the production of collagen and elastin. On the flip side, the usage of RF energy heats the deeper layers of the skin, further allowing that stimulation of collagen production, which produces the tightening of skin. Who says you can’t have the best of both worlds, in one treatment?!

By combining these two technologies, Morpheus8 is able to deliver remarkable results that were previously only achievable through more invasive procedures. While Morpheus8’s micro-needles deliver the energy to the precise desired depth, this ensures that the administering professional can provide each patient with the maximum desired effectiveness and extremely minimal discomfort or downtime. If you’ve ever had any exfoliation during a facial, the sensation is similar (and you can handle it.)

Dr. Alicia Olmoz, CEO and owner of Bellissima Medspa Aesthetics and Wellness Center has been utilizing this technology from its launch. Her practice, which is located in New Paltz, New York is a regular for clients that travel from both an international and multi-statewide radius to receive treatment. With one of the key benefits of Morpheus8 being versatility, the treatment can be customized to address a wide range of skin concerns. This includes fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin tone, and the dreaded sagging skin. Whether used on its own or in conjunction with other treatments, Olmoz notes that Morpheus8 can help patients achieve smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin; and this is why it’s known as true facial remodeling.

For many patients, the decision to undergo a cosmetic procedure is not just about the results – it’s also about the experience. For this reason, Morpheus8 provides a major advantage with a robust safety profile. Unlike traditional surgical procedures, Morpheus8 is less-than-minimally-invasive, not requiring any incisions or sutures to be performed; that’s correct, you read that right.

During the procedure, the Morpheus8 handpiece is gently guided over the skin, delivering the RF energy through the micro-needles. Patients may experience a mild heating sensation and some slight pressure, but overall, the treatment is well-tolerated and virtually painless. “Patients can expect a comfortable and relaxing treatment process, thanks to the device’s advanced technology and ergonomic design, Olmoz stated - Many often fall asleep!” Treatment of this nature provides minimal risk of complication, and patients can return to their normal activities shortly after the procedure. Olmoz recommends her C.H.A.M.P. method of after-care for Morpheus8 (and most aesthetic treatments) to ensure a positive result. It includes Cleaning treated areas gently, Hydrating treatment zones appropriately, Assessing the areas for progress or abnormalities, Makeup application can begin two days after treatment, and a Protective sunscreen is a must when dealing with any skin treatment.

The proof of Morpheus8’s effectiveness lies in the results it delivers. Countless patients have experienced dramatic improvements in their skin’s appearance and texture after undergoing treatment. From smoother, firmer skin to a more youthful complexion, the benefits are clear to see. One such patient, Nina, a 45-year-old mother of two who struggled with acne scars and sun damage saw tremendous results after just a few sessions of Morpheus8. “I couldn’t believe the difference,” she stated. “My skin looks smoother and more radiant than it has in years, especially before children!”

As technology continues to advance, the possibilities for aesthetic medicine are endless. With innovations like Morpheus8, patients can achieve natural-looking results with minimal downtime and discomfort. Whether used as a standalone treatment or in combination with other procedures, Morpheus8 is paving the way for a new era of facial contouring and skin rejuvenation.

Olmoz says, “We love this treatment because it can be useful for all skin types including those with darker pigments who may have limited options due to the risk of post treatment hyper-pigmentation. Treatments like this can be tailored for desired outcomes, and we often pair this therapy with platelet rich plasma to optimize outcomes by maximizing the body’s natural ability to repair itself through the power of its own growth factors.”

This game-changing technology will continue to take over the world of aesthetic medicine since consumers will always be searching for those treatments that yield unparalleled results safely while achieving the coveted YSF balance! (That’s youthful, smoother and firmer for those newly introduced beauty fans here) Afterall, maintenance & prevention are key in all areas of remodeling, including the health and beauty space!
