Remove Wrinkles, Scars & Shrink Pores
Morpheus Micro-needling – Collagen Induction Therapy
Truly beautiful skin is soft, supple and glowing. Yet with sun damage, acne scars, and fine lines, a luminous complexion can be difficult to achieve. Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive technique that boosts the skin’s production of collagen and elastin. These are two of the most important substances in maintaining plump, youthful skin.
Micro-needling involves using a mechanized device called a micro-needling pen to make tiny needle punctures in the outermost layers of the skin. By precisely controlling the micro-needling depth, spacing, frequency, and pattern, the skin is stimulated to produce additional collagen and elastin. A vast amount of scientific research supports the claim that micro-needling improves the appearance of pitted acne scars, fine lines, and hyper-pigmentation.
Morpheus8 is the first and only full-body subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD). Although it is applied externally, it allows the aesthetic provider to target deep layers of a patient’s skin and remodel collagen.
- Deep and safe fractional treatment penetrating 4000 microns with an additional thermal profile of 1000+ microns.
- Extremely uniform effect.
- Little to no thermal damage to dermis.
- Safe on skin type up to and including VI with little risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) which is common with other resurfacing methods.
Morpheus8 targets subdermal layers of the skin and tissue to remodel collagen on the face and body. This fractional skin treatment stimulates the production of collagen in the underlying layers of the dermis. It can be used on most body parts with the most popular being the lower face and neck. Morpheus8 effectively remodels skin and tissue with minimal risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Patients should expect little to no thermal damage to skin types I – VI.
What happens during a microneedling treatment?
The micro-needling treatment performed at Saldivar Wellness Center is a step above other clinics’ micro-needling treatments. After a thorough cleansing, the skin is further prepared by performing a microdermabrasion treatment and then treated with a beneficial vitamin C serum. Next, the medical aesthetician skillfully performs the micro-needling treatment to deliver tiny micro-injuries to the skin in order to promote collagen and elastin. Finally, as an added benefit, hyaluronic acid is applied to the skin. A take-home kit of skin cleanser and Vitamin C serum is provided.
What should be expected after the treatment?
Although micro-needling sounds a little scary (needles going into the face), it is actually quite tolerable. At the end of the treatment, the skin may be slightly red and a little swollen. There is minimal downtime with this treatment. By the next day, most patients are able to return to daily activities.
Improvements in the skin’s appearance should be noticeable after just one treatment, however, for better results, several micro-needling treatments may be required. Treatments may be repeated as frequently as every two weeks. Packages of three treatments are offered at a discounted price.
