Collagen and elastin are two key building blocks of youthful skin. They give your skin structure and vitality but unfortunately, collagen and elastin production decreases over time.
The loss of collagen and elastin is a major contributing factor in the development of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and other signs of aging. Fortunately, aesthetic treatments are available to target these age-related changes and restore a more youthful appearance.
At SWFL Integrative Medicine, we tackle the underlying cause of aging skin with nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. Heather Auld, MD, and our team provide facials with Morpheus8, a revolutionary aesthetic device that tightens and tones your skin from within.
If you’re bothered by aging and other common skin flaws, it’s time to learn how Morpheus8 works.
Morpheus8 is the latest microneedling treatment from InMode. It combines microneedling and radiofrequency technology to fight the most common signs of aging by stimulating tissue remodeling below the surface of your skin.
Microneedling involves using a pen or dermaroller to prick your skin. The pricks create hundreds of micro-wounds, stimulating your body’s healing response. Your skin starts generating more collagen and elastin, and the treatment gives your face a smoother, more youthful look.
Radiofrequency technology uses sound waves to penetrate even deeper into your skin. The waves heat the tissue and trigger remodeling, without the need for more invasive procedures. When combined with microneedling in a Morpheus8 treatment, radiofrequency technology helps your skin feel stronger and tighter.
Dr. Auld and our team specialize in customized aesthetic solutions. We can adjust your Morpheus8 treatment to target many of the most common skin issues, including:
It can be a great solution for your skin concerns, particularly if you have more than one flaw that’s bothering you. Morpheus8 is a flexible treatment, and our team can address multiple concerns in a single session.
Your aesthetic treatment starts with a comprehensive consultation. Dr. Auld and our team review your medical history, examine your skin, and discuss your concerns. If we recommend Morpheus8, we discuss details like the number of treatments you might need.
On the day of your treatment, we begin by cleansing your skin and applying a topical anesthetic. Then, we move the handheld device across your skin to stimulate tissue remodeling. There’s no downtime required after your procedure, but your skin may be red or sensitive for a few days.
Over the following weeks, your skin begins healing. It grows new collagen and elastin, which diminishes the look of lines, wrinkles, and other flaws over time.
