Ageless Elegance: The Morpheus8 Approach to Facial Contouring

by Celia Cooksey

There’s no shame in wanting to look and feel your best at any and every age. While we all want to age gracefully, sometimes nature isn’t so kind to us. Sagging cheeks, jowls, and the gradual decline in natural collagen production that comes with age can leave us looking tired, downtrodden, and many years older than we actually are, seriously affecting our self-image and confidence.

As you consider your options, there are non-surgical alternatives that can give you the firm, youthful appearance you’re looking for. We recently spoke to the cosmetic specialists at Miami Plastic Surgery about one of the most popular alternatives for facial contouring, Morpheus8.

“I see a lot of patients who want those beautiful, age-reversing facelift results without necessarily having to commit to getting surgery,” said Maylen Cadenas, an advanced registered nurse practitioner at Miami Plastic Surgery. “Morpheus8 is great for that because we can fully customize their treatment to target problem areas for more subtle, gradual improvements. Plus, with no real downtime, you don’t have to put your life on hold for a long, uncomfortable recovery period.”

There’s no shortage of anti-aging and face contouring options on the market today, but choosing the right service for you and your needs is crucial for getting the results you want. Whether you are new to the world of cosmetic procedures or you have experience with other aesthetic services, doing your research before undergoing any treatment is a must.

Morpheus8 is a revolutionary skin resurfacing and renewal treatment that combines traditional microneedling with targeted radio frequency therapy to naturally boost collagen production in the treated area. This helps to restore skin’s youthful plump texture, reversing sagging and laxity that can occur with age. It’s also great for improving your face’s overall harmony, especially if you’re looking for a more sculpted jawline.

As Maylen explains: “Research shows us that after age 30 we lose about 1% of our collagen per year. Those changes may not be noticeable at first, but they build up over time, especially around the eyes, mouth, and jawline. Thankfully, today there are interventions we can use, like the Morpheus8 microneedling and radio frequency treatment, that can help slow down and reverse that collagen depletion before we get to the stage where facial contouring surgery is necessary.”

Because Morpheus8 works by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen production, there’s no risk of adverse reaction to injections or unsightly scarring. You don’t have to worry about your skin becoming too taut and tight, or getting that severe, frozen look that can happen with less skilled plastic surgeons.

How Does Morpheus8 Treatment Work?

Morpheus8 and other bio-stimulating collagen restoration treatments are like an investment in your skin – both now and for the future.

Microneedling, the delivery mechanism for Morpheus8 treatment, works by creating needle prick punctures in the topmost layer of the skin. These small incisions trigger your skin’s healing factors in the desired treatment area, stimulating new collagen and elastin production to help repair the superficial damage as well as existing concerns like skin sagging and wrinkles.

Morpheus8 differs from standard microneedling because during the microneedling treatment, targeted radio frequencies penetrate the deeper layers of skin, generating a thermal reaction that helps to stimulate healing and renewed collagen production.

“Morpheus8 sessions usually take one to two hours,” Maylen said. “We start with a local anesthetic to help with any discomfort or pain and let that sit for 45 minutes to an hour. After that, the actual treatment on the face should only take 30 to 45 minutes. Larger areas like the legs or abdomen will take longer because there’s more surface area to cover. Some patients report feeling a small pinching or zapping sensation, but it’s not painful.”

She continued: “After your treatment, you might feel some tightening or experience swelling, tenderness, and redness. This is perfectly normal and usually goes away within 24 to 48 hours. Within just a few days of treatment you’ll start to see results!”

If you have a big event coming up, or you just want to treat yourself and refresh your look, Morpheus8 could be a great option for you. With natural-looking results and none of the drawbacks of surgical facial contouring, it’s no wonder Morpheus8 is so popular. Plus, it’s versatile – Morpheus8 can be used to treat stretch marks, cellulite, and scarring on the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and arms, too.
