Does Morpheus Tighten Skin?

Anyone in search of a safe and effective way to tighten their skin should consider Morpheus. It’s the next generation of micro-needling treatments that can be used on the face and various parts of the body. The procedure is so effective that people across California and beyond come to the Dermatology Institute of Southern California for Dr. Behroozan to perform the procedure on them to help them achieve their body goals.

Unlike many alternative antiaging treatments, Morpheus is an advanced procedure that uses state-of-the-art technology to target and remodels fat, deep underneath the skin. It’s the only FDA-approved full-body subdermal fat contouring procedure of its kind. Patients everywhere choose Morpheus over other body sculpting treatments to reverse the effects of aging on their bodies and appearances so they can look as young as they feel.

What’s So Special About Morpheus?

On the surface, Morpheus seems to be just like most micro-needling treatments. Yet, it’s not. The procedure utilizes microneedles to make tiny punctures into the skin to stimulate skin protein production, but the treatment doesn’t end there. The needles are designed to penetrate various depths and send concentrated fractional thermal radio energy waves to key areas to unlock the body’s healing response to shrink and improve skin while remodeling the deep fat layers underneath. As a result, Morpheus patients experience significant, positive changes in their appearances.

Morpheus is a non-surgical procedure. That makes it minimally invasive and perfectly suitable for anyone who wants to transform their face or body with dermal resurfacing and renewal treatment without the commitment, downtime, discomfort, or complication risks associated with many alternative treatments or surgeries. It’s safe and highly effective at tightening and smoothing the skin and contours of the face, neck, stomach, arms, legs, chest, and more. 

How Does Morpheus Work?

Aging is a natural, unstoppable process. No matter how old or young one feels, without excellent genetics or a lifetime of exceptional nutrition, health and skincare, the signs of aging are bound to appear. Wrinkles, jowls, puffiness, and lines in the skin are all symptoms of time taking a toll on the body’s natural collagen and elastin production. As these levels decrease, the more the unwanted side effects of aging appear.

Traditionally, the only known ways to deal with the unpleasant effects of aging on the body were to either practice self-love and acceptance, use cosmetics and beauty treatments to camouflage them or undergo cosmetic medical procedures and surgeries. Now, thanks to Morpheus, anyone who is unhappy with the skin they’re in can live out their dreams without the pain, downtime, or inconvenience normally associated with most standard procedures.

Morpheus is an FDA-approved subdermal adipose remodeling procedure. Treatment is administered via a special device that transmits special RF energy through tiny needles to break down fat and increase collagen to restore lost suppleness and eliminate excess fluffiness in areas. It redistributes what’s underneath the skin to leave behind firmer, smoother, and better-defined contours. It is so effective at tightening, that it can even be used in areas of the body, such as the thighs, back of the upper arms, abdomen, and buttocks, where fat tends to be more resistant and harder to get rid of, especially where there’s cellulite.

Though the procedure practically erases wrinkles and unsightly lines from the body by shrinking and lifting the skin and reducing fat, it does not halt the hands of time. Morpheus forces the skin to contract and tighten more than standard micro-needling and alternative antiaging procedures, thanks to its special radiofrequency energy component. It also breaks up scar tissue to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks. This also helps to restore some of the skin’s collagen and elastin. The procedure helps even out skin tones and textures, and essentially provides many of the same benefits associated with facelifts and other beauty treatments without the disadvantages.

Morpheus vs. Traditional Microneedling

Morpheus offers results that go beyond traditional micro needling procedures. Standard micro-needling treatments can only puncture the superficial layers of the skin (1.5 to 2 millimeters), but Morpheus can go much deeper, the needles can puncture anywhere from 0.5 mm up to 8 mm to reach the harder to access and hidden areas, including the adipose fat layer. Puncture depth is predetermined based on the patient’s needs and the surgeon’s treatment recommendations.

RF micro needling treatment can be used on areas of the body where the skin is thinnest, such as in the eye, mouth, or forehead areas to address crow’s feet, wrinkles, and puffiness and places where the skin is thickest, such as in the neck and jowl areas. Morpheus essentially enhances or restores the skin’s power to rejuvenate itself at a much faster rate. The desired effects can be achieved in as little as one to two sessions, with results showing up shortly afterward. Maintenance sessions can help preserve results and help eliminate the ongoing effects of aging.

Skin, on average, takes 28 to 42 days to replenish itself, but that timeframe increases significantly with age. After the age of 50, that timeframe doubles to 84 days or longer. Aging is a continuous process. The effects of aging are also dependent on many factors, such as genetics, health, lifestyle, and skincare routine. No one should have to go around with aging and sagging skin that negatively impacts their appearance and self-confidence. And even though the skin has a natural capacity to heal and repair itself, that capacity does diminish with time, lines and wrinkles become deeper, and skin becomes flat and looser.

A Side By Side Comparison of Liposuction and CoolSculpting

Spot reducing fat with diet and exercise alone is not possible. It is a hard fact to accept, and one that has led many to pursue liposuction. The surgical procedure does successfully remove fat but as it is an invasive procedure, there are risks, complications and at times, undesirable results in the form of lumps, bumps, waves and dimpling. Leading innovators in the cosmedical field understand the appeal of non-invasive procedures that offer phenomenal results. Out of these pursuits came CoolSculpting, a revolutionary new treatment that freezes unwanted fat cells without damaging healthy skin or tissue. There is no anesthesia, no incision, and no recovery time. The procedure delivers cooling technology that causes cell death in fatty adipose tissue. Over the next few weeks, the perished fat cells are disposed of by the body’s own immune system. Now that sucks the appeal of liposuction right out! (more…)

Voluma™ XC in Los Angeles

The aging process affects many aspects of our face, but one of the most noticeable changes is the loss of volume. Several injectable fillers, including others from Juvederm®, have been developed to replace lost volume in the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but no filler has before now been FDA-approved for use in the cheek area.

Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is the first and only FDA-approved filler to treat volume loss in the cheek area (apex, apple, and hallow). It is different from Juvederm XC as Juvederm XC is for use in a different area of the face; it is only used to smooth wrinkles away from the nose and mouth area. Instead of using the filler as merely a way to fill wrinkles, Voluma™ XC will gently lift the face and replace lost volume using hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring, hydrating compound in the skin. As the skin ages, it loses HA molecules, causing the skin to lose structure and volume. By injecting Voluma™ XC, a skilled doctor can help restore the lost volume in the cheeks, lifting the face and giving patients a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.

Blu-U Blue Light Acne Treatment LA

Acne, especially on the face, can be one of the most anxiety-causing skin conditions. It is a common skin problem that affects both teenagers and adults. Specially designed to treat individuals of all ages, the Blu-U Blue Light is a state-of-the-art acne treatment that can dramatically improve the skin’s appearance and diminish acne breakouts. Used alone or in combination with Levulan, the Blu-U Blue Light is an FDA approved acne treatment procedure that produces significant results in only a few short sessions.

The Blu-U Blue Light is an FDA-approved acne treatment that uses a special blue violet light to target acne. The light specifically destroys the bacteria that cause acne, P. acnes.

Acne Scars

After acne has healed, it can leave a red or brown mark on the skin. This is actually not a scar. The redness or brown spots are seen as the skin is healing, which can takes as long as 6 months. If acne is controlled in that area, the skin can heal normally. Any color change or skin defect still present after 1 year is considered to be a permanent scar. The best way to prevent acne scars is to prevent acne from forming in the first place. It is important to keep skin and acne scars out of the sun and wearing sunscreen each day. Using a Retin-A product help to clear existing acne and prevent new acne from occurring. You should avoid “picking” the skin. Picking at scabs interferes with the skin’s healing process increasing your changes of scarring your skin permanently.
