As the weather warms, your desire to apply makeup likely wanes. Wouldn’t it be nice to feel ready to enjoy the nicest part of the year with minimal fuss? If you can only imagine applying a moisturizer and sunscreen and heading out the door, it’s time to talk to our team.
At LH Spa & Rejuvenation in Livingston and Madison, New Jersey, Robert M. Olson, MD and our team offer a way to transform your complexion. It’s called Morpheus8. This leading-edge treatment combines microneedling and radiofrequency to address skin woes and leave you glowing.
Beyond the benefits of microneedling
Microneedling is well documented as a way to refresh your appearance. By pricking the skin with tiny needles, you trick the skin into thinking it’s been injured. It then starts its healing process, flooding the area with collagen to support skin firmness and new skin cells to improve your complexion.
Morpheus8 uses microneedling technology but takes it a step further by integrating radiofrequency energy. This safe, effective energy penetrates through your skin to further support the development of new collagen.
As a result, Morpheus8 gives you a surgery-free way to address:
- Scarring, including acne scars
- Uneven skin texture
- Stretch marks
You can use Morpheus8 anywhere you’d like to see skin transformation, but we most often see patients choose it for their face and neck. If you want a way to get your face summer-ready, Morpheus8 can deliver.
What to expect with Morpheus8
This treatment is safe for all skin types. The specialized technology helps to minimize your discomfort during treatment, too.
You should notice the results from your first Morpheus8 treatment in a matter of days, but you won’t see the full benefits until up to three months later. After treatment, your skin goes to work creating new collagen and skin cells, firming and revitalizing your complexion.
Some people stick with just one treatment, but others choose repeat appointments for optimal results. Most people achieve their ideal outcome with 1-3 sessions.
To get ready for treatment, avoid retinol products, sun exposure, exfoliants, and topical antibiotics for 48 hours before your appointment.
To protect your skin afterward, apply a daily SPF and keep your skin moisturized. For the first two days after treatment, avoid touching the skin and applying makeup.
Side effects from Morpheus8 are generally minimal, but you will likely notice some redness and swelling. Applying an ice pack wrapped in a towel helps.
Ultimately, Morpheus8 comes with minimal downtime and major upside. If you want to learn what this leading-edge treatment can do to help you put your best face forward this summer, call the LH Spa & Rejuvenation office nearest you.
