Enjoy the Benefits of RF-Boosted Collage-Induction Therapy in Nashville, TN
Fine lines and texture irregularities develop over time due to intrinsic aging and sun damage, both of which lower collagen levels in the skin. At Maxwell Aesthetics, we are proud to offer cutting-edge non-surgical treatments that trigger the creation of new collagen to counter these signs of aging. Using Morpheus8 microneedling, our Nashville-based team can give women and men alike a smoother, rejuvenated look.
Morpheus8 microneedling pairs fractional radiofrequency energy with traditional microneedling to impact layers deep below the surface, where subdermal fat sits. Remodeling this fat gives, as well as tightening lax areas, gives the skin a more youthful appearance.
How Does Morpheus8 Microneedling Work?
Traditional microneedling devices, which use multiple small needles to penetrate the surface of the skin and “jump start” natural healing processes, work at a depth of .5 to 1 mm. The shallow wounds prompt surrounding cells to go into repair mode, creating collagen and more to close up the channels. These healing efforts have the added benefit of repairing other damage, including fine lines.
Morpheus8’s needles work the same way, but penetrate up to 4 mm, creating deeper channels. Unlike traditional microneedling, this stimulates collagen production farther down as well as near the surface. The needles also do double duty, serving as delivery points for radiofrequency energy in addition to making tiny wounds. The controlled heat they deliver below the dermis causes loose skin to tighten, yielding a range of rejuvenating benefits: smoother and more even texture, reduces hyperpigmentation, and even less-visible stretch marks.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Morpheus8?
The face and neck are the most common areas patients choose to apply Morpheus8 microneedling, since these areas are particularly visible—and are prone to showing signs of aging and UV damage due to regular exposure to the sun. Of course, laxity and tone problems are visible (and treatable) elsewhere, including on the breasts, arms, and abdomen.
What Happens After a Morpheus8 Session?
Every patient is different, but Dr. Jacob Unger, Dr. Amaka Nwubah, and Tracy Jensen, NP, typically recommend one to three treatments, depending on the areas treated and patient’s goals. The skin-tightening effect will be visible within days of your treatment, with results continuing to improve as collagen levels rise in the skin. The full effect of a Morpheus8 microneedling session will be enjoyed in roughly three months.
Since the channels created by the Morpheus8 device are so small, there is no need for significant healing or down time. Make-up can be applied after two days, and any redness resulting from the treatment should grow less dramatic within three days, then resolve after a week.
Are There Options Besides Morpheus8?
Maxwell Aesthetics aims to provide a range of treatments to accommodate patients with various skin conditions, goals, and other variables. Aside from RF microneedling, people who want to get clearer, smoother, more even skin can choose from laser skin resurfacing, IPL, and chemical peels. The team can help determine which is best in each unique case.
