Is Morpheus8™ a Good Option for Skin Tightening?
Wrinkles, lines, sagging skin – these are all unfortunate facts of life. Whether from sun exposure, lifestyle habits, or simply getting older, skin loosens over time, leaving many unhappy with how they look. Enter Morpheus8, a cutting-edge skin tightening solution that uses advanced techniques to rejuvenate and tighten your skin without surgery and the recovery time that comes with it. At Clear Lake Dermatology in Webster and League City, TX, our board-certified dermatologists are committed to delivering the skin-tightening results you want. Here’s how Morpheus8 can help you achieve them in the Greater Houston area.
Why does skin lose its tightness?
Skin tightness – or skin elasticity – is what keeps you looking young and healthy. However, there are a lot of factors that can make you lose your natural store of collagen and elastin. This can lead to decreased skin tightness, wrinkles, lines, sagging skin, and poor skin texture.
Factors that impact your skin elasticity include:
Harsh weather, such as sun exposure
Lifestyle habits, such as a poor diet and smoking
What is Morpheus8 skin tightening treatment?
While loose skin may be inevitable, there is a solution. With Morpheus8 skin tightening treatment, you can regain your skin elasticity for a younger, rejuvenated appearance.
Morpheus8 is an advanced, cutting-edge skin tightening treatment that uses the power of microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Because Morpheus8 doesn’t require invasive plastic surgery, it also doesn’t come with the long recovery times of those procedures.
At Clear Lake Dermatology, our patients in the Greater Houston area can enjoy the benefits of a quick and effective skin tightening procedure with Morpheus8.
How does Morpheus8 work?
Morpheus8 uses the best of two skin tightening technologies: microneedling and RF energy.
Microneedling uses tiny needles to make very small pinpricks in the skin. These result in micro-injuries – or very small injuries that trigger your skin’s natural healing responses. This causes your body to produce more collagen and elastin.
RF treatment produces low-energy radiation deep into the layers of your skin, making your skin tighten and contract. Like microneedling, it also stimulates collagen and elastin growth.
The power of these two effective strategies combined is tightened skin, reduced wrinkles, and a more youthful appearance.
What should I expect from a Morpheus8 treatment session?
Unlike invasive surgery, Morpheus8 is done using a simple procedure at our office in League City or Webster, TX.
In your Morpheus8 session, one of our team members will clean and sanitize the treatment area. If you’re concerned about discomfort, we can also use a topical anesthetic. However, most patients don’t experience discomfort or pain during Morpheus8 treatments.
One of our board-certified dermatologists will use a Morpheus8 handpiece over the area you want to tighten. They will repeat this several times. A session can last between 30 – 90 minutes, depending on how large of an area (or areas) you are having treated.
Once your Morpheus8 treatment is complete, you can return home and resume your normal activities – no downtime required.
