5 Reasons You Need to Try Morpheus8 Microneedling!

by | Jan 4, 2022 | Anti-aging, Face, Non-Surgical Options

As we age, it’s natural to be tempted to jump on the bandwagon of endless skincare products, cosmetic procedures, and Internet-famous trends (remember the jade rollers everyone swore by not too long ago?). However, there are some critical factors to take seriously which do impact the health of your skin on a daily basis – whether you are aware of them or not. 

While many facial “treatments” simply leave you feeling temporarily refreshed and renewed, InMode’s revolutionary Morpheus8 treatment produces results that run far deeper than any facial or other spa treatments and can help to drastically improve the appearance of your skin long-term, which has allowed it to become a fan favorite of those who wish to stay forever young. 

What Is Morpheus8 Treatment? 

Using radiofrequency (RF) micro-needling technology, Morpheus8 is the first subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) to stimulate collagen production throughout the deepest layers of the skin. As its radiofrequency energy is directed toward the adipose fat (particularly known for causing skin imperfections), the RF energy stimulates the growth of elastin and collagen, which assists in remodeling and reorganizing the face in a stunning anti-aging procedure. 

Morpheus8’s results speak for themselves! Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced, skin tone and texture are improved, skin is tightened, and the patient walks away feeling more confident, with results that continue to improve for months following the procedure. An alternative to more invasive procedures, such as facelifts, Morpheus8 is a safe, minimally-invasive technique to address many issues facing aging skin. 

What 5 Factors Are Critical to Beware When Aging,

and How Do Morpheus8’s Before and After Results Address Each?

Today we’re talking about five factors that have been scientifically proven to impact your skin: genetics, sun exposure, diet, stress, and air pollution, and how Morpheus8 assists in addressing each.

How Much Sun Exposure Has Your Skin Received? 

Too much time in the sun dries out the skin and can play a devastating role in its ability to relax the muscles and bounce back into place. Particularly for those who (like the VIPS team!) are Florida natives, the decades of skin exposure and likely damage eventually take their toll. As a study from over two decades ago found, “The number of wrinkles was significantly related to total hours of sun exposure in life, increased in a roughly linear fashion with the advancement of age, and was larger in men than in women.” 

The role that sun exposure plays in prematurely aging skin and increasing the onset of wrinkles has been repeatedly revisited by scientists and medical journals, with recent estimates claiming that up to 80% of a person’s lifetime skin exposure takes place while they are under the age of 18. Regardless of age, ultimately, overexposure to UV rays can contribute to the creation of free radicals within the body, causing damage to the skin’s elastin and slowly wreaking harm on the body’s organs and internal systems. 

To Counteract Sun Exposure: Morpheus8 Corrects and Improves Skin Tone

As the RF energy enters the superficial layers of the dermis, it improves the skin’s tone and radiance, counteracting the harmful effects of UV rays exposure. 

What Does Your Diet Look Like? Are You Supporting Your Skin through a Vitamin and Mineral-rich Routine? 

The food and beverages that we consume unquestionably impact our skin. The skin is the body’s largest living organ – active, living tissue which must be treated well in order to thrive. You’ll find copious recommendations for foods that speed up the aging process and should be avoided, along with those which are known to have anti-aging properties to assist in the healthy prevention of thinning skin, setting wrinkles, and promotion of graceful aging. 

To Counteract an Insufficient Diet: Morpheus8 Reduces Pockets of Fat

The RF energy’s depth allows the provider to not only improve the superficial layers of skin but to target deeper fatty pockets, as well. If you wish to include fat removal in your Morpheus procedure, please contact our office at Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery. 

How Stressed Are You on a Daily Basis? 

Similar to sun damage, chronic and psychological stress are widely known to cause the expedited breakdown of elastin within the skin, in addition to the increase of severe facial expressions (which, in turn, directly contributes to premature wrinkling of the skin). It has been documented since ancient times that the longer an individual is highly stressed, the more severe the wrinkles will become. In this sense, living a relaxed and centered life is important to allow your body to exhale and rejuvenate itself without added stressors. 

To Counteract Stress: Signs of Aging Skin Are Reduced

Morpheus8 is a valuable tool against fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. The elasticity of the skin increases in response to the RF energy stimulation, which assists the skin in both healing scars and preventing future fine lines and wrinkles.

How Severe Is the Pollution in the Air in the Areas Where You Spend the Majority of Your Time?

Pollution has been recently linked to heightened skin conditions and the premature aging of the skin, according to a study from the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Hyperpigmentation, dark spots, fine lines, and the thinning of the skin can be significantly correlated to the pollution index of an individual’s most frequented areas. Why? Exposure to air pollution, like UV rays, creates free radicals, which strip the skin of its lipids (the natural filter of the skin – assisting in retaining moisture while fighting impurities). With its defenses down, the skin is more vulnerable to dirt, chemicals, and toxins from the environment. 

To Counteract Pollution: Skin Texture Is Improved

Thanks to its ability to retexture skin, Morpheus8 has been proven to improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks, produce collagen, and improve the firmness and elasticity of the skin.

Even if you lead a healthy lifestyle, these environmental and genetic factors are nearly impossible to avoid, which eventually contributes to aging skin looking worn out, saggy, thin, and lackluster. If your skin is in need of an anti-aging boost, Morpheus8 may be precisely the procedure for you. 

Are You Genetically Prone to Lighter or More Serious Wrinkles? 

Noticing the skin of your parents, grandparents, and extended family may help to assess what your skin will look like several decades from now. Pay attention to their wrinkles: when they laugh, smile, or hold tension in their face, is it tight, or does it contract and create lines in the skin? Pay attention to their irregularities: do dark spots or hyperpigmentation run in your family? Pay attention to the family history: have your immediate family members contracted either mild or serious cases of cancer? 

The effects of heritable aging factors vary depending upon ethnic population, gender, and sensitivity. Even if you are young, it may be time to begin preventative treatment in order to successfully avoid the inevitable deep-set wrinkles, pigmentation, or sagging of your ancestors.

To Counteract Genetics: Morpheus8 Improves the Overall Health of Your Skin

While there is nothing that can be done to directly alter your genetics, our four favorite Morpheus8 before and after results directly combat the natural aging factors that surround us on a daily basis, leading to healthier skin in the long run.
