No matter how much we exercise, how well we eat, or what we do to take care of our skin on a daily basis, as years progress, our skin loses collagen and elastin. The aging process is inevitable and, unfortunately, outside of our control.
Say it isn’t so!
The Science Behind Collagen Break Down
Collagen is a protein produced in the human body and is referred to as the “glue” that holds our body together. Our bodies produce collagen naturally, and our skin is in a constant state of balancing collagen production and degradation. When we are young, our bodies produce more collagen than we break down. That changes as we age because tissue regeneration decreases and collagen breaks down faster than new tissue is produced.
What happens to the skin when there is a breakdown of collagen? Fine lines appear, wrinkles become more apparent, and a laxity of the skin starts to appear.
So what can you do when the collagen scale begins to tip?
Enter Morpheus8, the most advanced radiofrequency microneedling device on the market that incorporates fractional energy to deliver heat to the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production.
Morpheus8 differs from other radio frequency devices as it has the power to deliver radiofrequency up to three times the depth of older technology. It penetrates the deep layers of the skin tissue and fat to alter, or “morph” the physical properties of our body or face, and creates a smoother contour.
Morpheus8 uses two applicator tips to produce impressive skin tightening and resurfacing results. The first tip consists of 24k gold micro-needles that penetrate the skin to induce the body’s natural healing mechanism using radiofrequency energy.
The second tip contains an ablative resurfacing tip to heat the skin’s surface and deeper layers. This dual-modality treatment quickly and effectively tightens, smooths, and strengthens skin from deep within to produce more substantial and longer-lasting results.
We’re thrilled to now offer Morpheus8 Body at Greenwich Point Dermatology
Morpheus8 Body stimulates collagen production the same way it does for the face and can target larger surface areas like the abdomen, back of the arms, knees, hips and thighs. It reduces the appearance of cellulite and tightens the skin. Morpheus8 Body also eliminates pockets of fat in the treated area to give you a better contour with a youthful texture and tone.
Visible results can be seen within days after your treatment; however, your skin will continue to produce and generate new collagen over the following 3 months. Improvements continue for over 6 months!
