Microneedling is a technique that is designed to improve the contour, texture, and tightness of the skin. Traditional microneedling involves a small device that rolls a series of needles over the skin, which can be quite traumatic to the skin with excessive downtime and minimal results. With Morpheus8 combining microneedling and radiofrequency there is significantly less trauma to the top layer of the skin. This means less downtime compared to other microneedling and other skin resurfacing treatments. The downtime is usually just that afternoon. Morpheus8 works by using a series of small needles to irritate the skin and stimulate collagen growth after the application of topical anesthesia. The radiofrequency component is delivered to the deeper tissues helps to stimulate elastin, improve facial contours, and tighten the skin. Because the heat is delivered deep it does not cause changes in the pigment of the skin making it safe for all skin types. Dr. Guy offers the Morpheus8 which can also be combined with our FaceTite as Embrace RF to get even more drastic results more comparable to that of surgery. Microneedling with RF can be used to help with subcutaneous fat, acne scarring, skin discoloration, poorly healed scars, depressed scars, and to help restore luster to the skin. Dr. Guy has expertise with all methods of skin resurfacing as well as newer technologies that are less invasive, and he can discuss them with you during a consultation.
