Macaroni and cheese. Cookies and milk. Peanut butter and jelly. Some things just go together. When it comes to rejuvenating aging or damaged skin, microneedling and radiofrequency energy are that perfect couple we’re all looking for.
Morpheus8 is a state-of-the-art skin rejuvenation system that combines those two individual treatments into one perfectly balanced therapy. As a top-ranked medical spa in West Hollywood and Glendale, California, Luxbae is a leading provider of Morpheus8 therapy, tailoring every treatment plan to the unique goals of the patient. Here’s how Morpheus8 could help you.
To understand how Morpheus8 works, you need to understand the basics of how microneedling and radiofrequency energy work to rejuvenate damaged skin.
Microneedling uses tiny needles to create a series of controlled injuries in the upper layers of your skin. These needles are very thin — much thinner than the needles used to deliver vaccines.
Each needle creates a tiny area of controlled damage — intentional tissue injury that prompts natural healing responses, including ramped-up production of collagen. What’s collagen? It’s one of skin’s building blocks, and it’s what helps youthful, healthy skin look and feel smooth, clear, and firm.
Collagen production slows down dramatically as we get older, and it also slows down in response to sun exposure, illness, medication, and other factors. Microneedling restores collagen production to help skin rejuvenate itself from the inside out.
Radiofrequency energy is another collagen production booster. In Morpheus8 treatment, each tiny microneedle acts as an energy delivery system, transmitting heat energy into the deeper layers of tissue.
Once delivered, that heat energy spurs additional collagen development along with tissue remodeling. When combined with microneedling, radiofrequency energy enhances the effects of treatment and helps create more profound results that last longer.
Because of its unique combination of skin therapies, Morpheus8 can be an ideal solution for many skin issues, including:
Morpheus8 can be combined with other therapies and treatments, like chemical peels, injections, and facials, making it a good choice for custom skin care based on your unique needs. Plus, treatments can be repeated to help you maintain your results.
After an initial evaluation, our team develops a skincare regimen that’s ideally suited to your skin health and your aesthetic goals. Your Morpheus8 treatment begins with a topical anesthetic to help you stay comfortable during your session.
Once your skin is numb, your provider passes the Morpheus8 device over the surface of your skin. Tiny needles penetrate the upper layers of your skin, stimulating natural healing. Each needle delivers pulses of radiofrequency energy aimed at promoting collagen development, for skin that looks and feels firmer and healthier.
Afterward, there’s no downtime, but your skin will look red and may feel extra sensitive. It’s important to protect your skin from the sun and to follow the instructions we provide to help you care for your skin as it heals. Most patients benefit from a series of treatments. Your recommended plan will be tailored to you specifically.
