The Morhpeus8 skin tightening procedure is an advanced face tightening treatment that can take years off the appearance in as little as one treatment. At Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer this and other skin tightening solutions to the men and women living in Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra Beach, Orange Park, Lakeside and the nearby areas of North Florida.
What is Morpheus8 Skin Tightening?
The Morpheus8 skin tightening treatment is a new, minimally-invasive treatment that can be used to tighten skin on the face and neck. The Morpheus8 device works much like microneedling, but offers the added benefit of radiofrequency technology. During treatment, small punctures are made in the skin with the Morpheus8 handpiece. This process stimulates collagen production in the skin, which will cause the tightening of the skin as the body creates more collagen to heal these temporary wounds. The treatment also emits radiofrequency energy during the treatment process, which melts adipose tissue, causing a “shrink wrap” effect of the skin, resulting in tighter skin, giving you a more youthful appearance.
How Much Does Morpheus8 Cost in Jacksonville, FL?
The cost of Morpheus8 varies with each patient as it is based on the extent of the area to be treated, and the number of treatments needed to produce optimal results. At Garcia Plastic Surgery, we accept all major credit cards and offer financing in an effort to make this and other treatments as affordable as possible.
What are the Benefits of Morhpeus8?
Morpheus8 provides skin tightening benefits for a variety of patients. It also has the ability to address other cosmetic concerns, and can provide the following benefits:
- Reduced fine lines & wrinkles
- Tighter skin
- Reduction in discoloration, hyperpigmentation and scarring
- Improved complexion and skin texture
- Little to no downtime
What is the Morpheus8 Treatment Like?
The Morpheus8 treatment is performed by our Medical Aestheticians. Prior to treatment, we will apply a topical anesthetic to the skin. This will numb the skin to minimize any discomfort that may arise during the treatment process. As treatment begins, we will maneuver the Morpheus8 device to treat the desired areas of the face and neck. With the topical anesthetic and advanced technology of Morpheus8, most patients find this treatment to be comfortable.
When Will I See the Results from My Morpheus8 Treatment?
You will begin to notice the results of Morpheus8 after a series of three treatments. The skin tightening is an effect of the radiofrequency energy applied to the skin. As the body continues to produce collagen, you will notice further skin tightening benefits. These results will continue to improve for a few months after treatment.
Is There Downtime After Morpheus8?
The Morpheus8 treatment requires minimal downtime, patients can apply makeup and resume normal activities 24 hours after treatment. The strength of the Morpheus8 treatment can be adjusted depending on the patient’s treatment needs, and this is what determines the recovery period. Generally, patients can expect a recovery time between one and four days. Recovery can include redness, swelling, dryness and flaking for 1 to 4 days, depending on how aggressive your treatment is.
