During the aging process, our skin slowly starts to lose the healthy supply of collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastins we once had when we were younger. 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 would like to slow 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 (RF) treatments, like Forma and Fractora, are proven to generate collagen remodeling with their use of thermal energy.

Morpheus8 by InMode is the newest and most innovative microneedling device on the market. It is a revolutionary 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.

Morpheus8 delivers the thermal energy of radio-frequency waves to deeper layers of the skin and tissue with adjustable microneedles, allowing 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 Morpheus8 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 arms, abdomen, above the knee, thighs or buttocks.

The 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.

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.

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.

At Maricopa Wellness Center we offer many different options for body contouring and skin resurfacing and tightening. Please call for a free consultation. LIVE WELL BE WELL
