During the aging process, our skin slowly starts to lose the healthy supply of collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin. This results in the appearance of wrinkles and a reduction of skin volume and elasticity causing our skin to sag. As we get older, most of us would like to slow down this process and continue to enjoy smooth skin and defined contours.

Many non-surgical techniques have been developed in recent years to address skin-related concerns for patients who are not yet ready or willing to consider surgical solutions. Microneedling treatments create tiny punctures, or micro lesions, in the superficial layer of the skin to stimulate a healing response causing an increase in the production of collagen, elastin, and new skin cells.

Radio-frequency treatments, like Forma and Fractora, are proven to generate collagen remodeling with their use of thermal energy. Morpheus8, by InMode, is a revolutionary and ground breaking technology that will dramatically tighten lax skin, improve the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, smooth rough or uneven texture, treat hyperpigmentation and acne scarring and even reduce unwanted fat.

Morpheus 8 combines the two technologies of microneedling and RF to deliver the thermal energy of radio-frequency waves to deeper layers of the skin and tissue with adjustable microneedles. This combination allows RF energy to reach both the dermis and epidermis for maximum results.

The Morpheus8 is FDA approved as a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device, or SARD, unlike standard microneedling treatments. The Morpheus 8 treatment can adjust the ultra-fine microneedles to a depth of up to 6 millimeters, deeper than any other microneedling device currently available. This fractional treatment penetrates deep into the skin and fat for a smoother and sleeker appearance.

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive treatment that is most popular to treat the face, jawline, and neck, it can also be used anywhere on your body, including the abdomen, above the knee, thighs, or buttocks.

This treatment is safe and effective for use on all skin types and tones. Unlike other resurfacing methods, the Morpheus8 has minimal risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Patients should expect little to no thermal damage to skin. (Can treat skin type VI).

Our patients’ comfort during treatment is a top priority. Prior to treatment a topical anesthetic is applied to the skin. After 45 minutes the patient is ready to receive treatment. The patient will experience a warming sensation to the skin with little discomfort. We also offer complimentary ProNox if needed for comfort.

Morpheus8 can cause permanent and lasting results that withstand the test of time. With the proper treatment plan and annual maintenance treatments patients can sustain ongoing collagen production and major reduction in skin laxity.

Morpheus8 can be paired with other treatments, including IPL treatments. We call it the “Tight and Glow” package. During July 2021 Maricopa Wellness Center is offering a complimentary IPL treatment for all new Morpheus8 clients. Call for your free consultation today and see if the Morpheus8 is the right treatment.
