While plastic surgery can make remarkable changes to your facial contours and deep wrinkles, it can’t address surface flaws. At Advanced Facial Surgery in Shrewsbury, New Jersey, and Greenwich Village in Manhattan, New York City, cosmetic surgeon Manolis Manolakakis, DMD, FACS, can address surface imperfections like scars and fine lines with Morpheus8 by Inmode radiofrequency microneedling treatments. To find out if Morpheus8 fits into your treatment plan, call Advanced Facial Surgery, or book an appointment online today.
Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive treatment that promotes collagen remodeling within your skin and tissues. Collagen is a protein fiber that gives your skin structure and keeps it firm throughout your life. As you age, you lose collagen. Collagen loss contributes to:
You’re fully sedated as Dr. Manolakakis performs the Morpheus8 treatment on your skin at Advanced Facial Surgery. The Morpheus8 device includes a series of fine needles that penetrate your skin at a depth of four millimeters. This is deeper than other microneedling treatments, so the effects are more pronounced.
Radiofrequency energy comes through the needles to disrupt your tissues and kickstart healing processes deep within your skin. Dr. Manolakakis recommends 1-3 sessions, depending on the extent of your skin’s damage.
Morpheus8 microneedling treatments go above and beyond to help your skin rebuild itself from the inside. You see a big difference in your skin’s clarity and texture within a few days of your treatment, with the full effect becoming apparent in about three weeks.
Specific skin concerns that Morpheus8 can improve include:
Unlike comparable procedures, Morpheus8 doesn’t cause post-treatment hyperpigmentation. You can enjoy the benefits of the treatment without worrying about long-term side effects and changes in the way your skin looks.
Dr. Manolakakis details the steps you need to take after your procedure to care for your skin as it heals. After 1-2 days of initial healing, you can safely apply makeup and cover up any residual redness on your skin. The redness can last for up to a week, but it is temporary nonetheless. If you notice any bruising, applying ice to the area can help minimize it.
Dr. Manolakakis instructs you to moisturize your skin religiously after Morpheus8 treatment, and he can recommend specific products to do so. He also recommends staying out of direct sunlight and using sunscreen every day for extra protection.
