Facial radiofrequency treatments are increasingly in demand. Thanks to these medical-aesthetic…
If treating blemishes such as facial and body laxity was difficult in the past, as of today it is no longer. Thanks to the introduction of Morpheus8, it is possible to completely revitalize areas such as the face where the classic signs of advancing age including lack of tone, wrinkles, and tired skin occur.
The problem of facial laxity
When we talk about skin “laxity,” we mean that series of skin conditions that result from lack of tone.
There are several factors that come into play when there is little tone in the skin, such as reduced concentrations of elastin or collagen.
The absence of sports, an unbalanced diet, smoking or even stress, are practical examples of what makes the skin look looser, especially in the face.
One of the tools to counteract all these factors and achieve skin tone is Morpheus8.
Morpheus8 and the treatment of facial laxity
There are now tools and therapies designed to treat blemishes such as skin laxity in the face, neck, and décolleté. One of these is Morpheus8, a device designed to remodel skin by stimulating collagen production.
The mechanism of operation of Morpheus8 is very simple. First, a series of micro-channels are opened in the areas of the body to be treated. Next, a series of RF electromagnetic waves are delivered through the instrument onto the area to be treated.
Due to the action of the electromagnetic waves deep inside, heat is carried, which alters the thermal balance and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the tissues. This, in turn, regenerates the skin and improves its surface condition, giving greater elasticity and tone.
Along with the stimulation of collagen and elastin, there is also a vasodilator action in the treated area. This results in increased transport of nutrients, blood and oxygen to the skin cells, which are completely revitalized.
Other effects of Morpheus8
In addition to treating skin laxity, different treatments can be performed with the same instrument for:
- Wrinkles: the action of RF has an anti-aging effect, particularly visible in the face. Through stimulation of the production of collagen and elastin, the aging process is slowed down and blemishes such as dry, inelastic skin are treated. For more information on treating skin laxity, follow link.
- Localized Adiposity: through RF it is possible to go to work directly on those concentrations of fatty tissue distributed along the body.
- Remodeling of the body: undergoing a Morpheus8 treatment is also an effective and quick way to redefine certain body areas. For an in-depth look at reshaping the abdomen, thighs and buttocks with Morpheus8, click at the following link.
Facial laxity post-treatment indications
Before undergoing treatment with Morpheus8, it is important to follow a number of safety instructions. For example, to avoid bruising, it is helpful not to use inflammatories such as aspirin.
It is also recommended not to consume exfoliating or retinol-containing products.
Following each session, it is then recommendednot to expose directly to sunlight and to avoid touching the treatment area for 1-2 days.
