The Top Benefits of Morpheus8

Keeping skin healthy, vibrant, and youthful is a perfect way to bolster your self-confidence and achieve your ideal aesthetic. However, as people age, doing so can become far more difficult with the onset of fine lines and wrinkles. Thankfully, there are countless innovative modern ways to keep those skin blemishes at bay. One such treatment is Morpheus8!

Morpheus8 is an entirely safe and fully effective skin rejuvenation technique that offers a variety of benefits that make it one of the best available. A few of those benefits include the following:

Entirely Non-Surgical

If you’re not the biggest fan of surgical procedures and the stresses that can accompany them, then Morpheus8 may be the treatment for you! It is completely non-surgical, meaning it can provide comparable results to invasive surgeries without the associated downtime and risks.

A Fully-Customizable and Versatile Treatment

Morpheus8 treatment involves a unique and highly specialized device that comes with a myriad of settings that can be perfectly tailored to your skin. This means that no matter your complexion or skin sensitivity, Morpheus8 could work wonders for you.

Whether you are looking to erase fine lines and wrinkles, tighten loose facial skin, or diminish the appearance of old acne scars, this fantastic skin treatment can help correct a variety of skin imperfections that may be dulling your youthful glow.

Minimal Downtime & Long-Lasting Results

In tandem with Morpheus8’s versatility, it also produces long-lasting results with wildly minimal downtime post-treatment. Minimal downtime means that you can pick up your daily routine soon after the treatment is over. This makes it an excellent option for those with busy schedules and a desire to correct specific skin blemishes.

Meanwhile, its long-lasting effects are thanks to the fact that Morpheus8 encourages your skin to naturally produce collagen long after the treatment is over. This means that those improvements you see will endure for a long while afterward.

  1. Avoid Direct sunlight
  2. Avoid using harsh or irritating skincare products
  3. Refrain from waxing or laser hair removal
  4. Avoid lotions, perfumes, and makeup on the day of your treatment
  5. Shave the treatment area if there is coarse or dark hair

Our Skin Tightening Options

While there are some similarities in preparation, a closer look at three of our skin tightening options illustrates how different preparation can be:

  • FaceTite. FaceTite is a radiofrequency energy skin tightening treatment that uses a tiny probe to gently heat underlying tissue and stimulate collagen production. In preparation for FaceTite, you must stop taking blood-thinning medications, supplements, and herbs. You will also need to stop using nicotine if you are a smoker.
  • Morpheus8. Morpheus8 combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten skin throughout the body. It is best to avoid direct sunlight in the days leading up to Morpheus8 treatment. It is also best to avoid irritating skincare products and to come to our office free of makeup, lotions, or anything else that will need to be removed.
  • SkinPen Microneedling. SkinPen was the first microneedling pen to be approved by the FDA. Safe and gentle, this device creates tiny wounds in the skin to stimulate collagen production. You must avoid waxing, laser hair removal, and depilatory creams for at least one week before treatment. Avoiding excessive sun exposure and coming to our office with clean skin is also important.

Dr. Gopathi will work directly with you in the days leading up to your treatment to help ensure you have all the tools you need for the most rewarding experience.
