Morpheus8 Microneedling in Fort Worth

Did you know that as you age, your body loses more collagen and elastin than it can produce? You need those building blocks to maintain youthful skin tone and texture.

You can postpone or correct some cosmetic concerns by stimulating your body’s production of these proteins. There are several non-surgical treatment options that our aesthetician Jennifer Geyer offers, including Morpheus8 Microneedling in Fort Worth.

What Is Microneedling and How Is Morpheus8 Different?

Microneedling is a common cosmetic procedure that uses a handheld device with dozens of tiny needles to create controlled micro injuries to the skin’s surface. The healing process stimulates production of collagen and elastin, which leads to smoother and firmer skin. Microneedling can also smooth the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and uneven skin texture.

The Morpheus 8 microneedling procedure goes one step further and delivers radiofrequency energy through the tiny needles. This targets deeper layers of the dermis with thermal energy. The key difference between traditional microneedling and the Morpheus8 is the depth of treatment and the ability to target specific cosmetic concerns, which respond more quickly to radiofrequency energy.

Using this combination of radiofrequency energy and micro injuries to stimulate collagen production has added benefits. Many people also experience skin tightening, improve skin tone and texture, a reduction of superficial fat, and an improved appearance of wrinkles and acne scarring.

Am I a Good Candidate for Morpheus8 Microneedling?

People who are good candidates for this procedure want to address cosmetic concerns like uneven skin texture, mild skin laxity, acne scars, or fine lines and wrinkles. This procedure is a good option for people with all skin types and tones. The procedure also works well for people who have skin concerns and need minimal recovery time.

While the procedure is safe and effective for all skin types, it is not the right choice for everyone. For example, people who have active skin infection or acne should postpone the treatment until these skin conditions have resolved. People who have a history of keloid scarring or those who are pregnant or breastfeeding should also avoid Morpheus8 Microneedling.

People who get the best results have realistic expectations. During your consultation, Jennifer will discuss with you what you can expect after your skin is healed from treatment. Although the procedure can significantly improve scars, fine lines, and wrinkles, you typically will not have the same results as a surgical procedure or more invasive treatments.

During your consultation with Jennifer, she assesses your skin condition, discusses your treatment goals, and determines whether Morpheus8 Microneedling in Fort Worth is the best option to help you meet your goals.

What Should I Expect During Recovery?

After treatment with the Morpheus8 Microneedling device, you can experience some redness, swelling, and mild discomfort that may look and feel like a sunburn. This is normal and typically gets better within a few days. There are some steps you can take that will help the healing process and minimize your discomfort at home.

Before you leave, Jennifer will give you specific aftercare instructions that are based on your procedure, the extent of your treatment, and your skin type. It is important to follow these closely to help avoid any complications.

Generally, you’ll be able to use a cool compress or ice pack that can help reduce swelling and discomfort as well as soothe your skin. Your aftercare instructions will include when you can begin using a moisturizer to hydrate your skin. It is important to also drink plenty of water after the procedure to help hydrate your skin from the inside. Take care to avoid any skincare products with harsh ingredients to protect your skin as it heals.

Depending on the extent of your treatment, Jennifer may also recommend that you avoid strenuous exercise, hot showers or baths, and medications or supplements that could thin your blood. It is not unusual for it to take several weeks before you see the full results of the Morpheus8 Microneedling procedure. So, it is important to be patient and consistent with your skin care routine, which will help you achieve optimal results from the procedure.
