Healthy, glowing skin is something everyone wants to have even as they age. When you have smooth skin that is blemish-free, wrinkle-free, and even-toned, you will use less makeup. Even-toned skin also gives you a boost of confidence when you go out. But as aging kicks in, your skin will go through changes like collecting wrinkles, acne scars, and sunspots.
Fortunately, there are safe, effective, and minimally invasive innovations in the skin rejuvenation sector that offer solutions. Individuals can apply these solutions to damaged aging or sagging skin. One of these revolutionary treatments is Morpheus8® skin tightening offered at Handal Plastic Surgery.
What Causes Sagging Skin?
Several factors work together to give someone supple-looking and healthy skin, but when they fail, the skin begins to sag. These factors include:
As aging kicks in, the structure created by collagen starts growing sparse as the production declines. It increases significantly as women reach menopause since the surface skin begins to occupy the spaces created by missing collagen.
- Fat Layer Displacement
With age, the fat layer under the face starts going to the lower parts, likely forming a double chin. This fat does not go away with exercise or diet because it is in the wrong place. This fat can form even if you are maintaining your ideal weight.
As we age, the elastin in our bodies also declines, causing our skin to lose elasticity. Gravity pulling on the skin causes it to sag because elastin does not have collagen to hold it up. This is due to the weakened collagen fibers under the skin.
Hyaluronic acid, which is responsible for keeping the skin hydrated, declines in production, making the skin feel and look dry. Hence, you must use creams with many nutrients to keep your skin looking supple. But neither hyaluronic acid nor elastin can do much without collagen restoration.
What Is Morpheus8 Skin Tightening?
Morpheus8 skin tightening employs micro-needling and a radiofrequency device to tighten and lift the skin. It resolves the irregularities found in the skin and improves its elasticity. The silicone-coated needles pierce the skin, create channels, and prompt the body to heal by creating new collagen under the skin.
Morpheus8 employs the heat generated by the radiofrequency device that passes over your skin to tighten and contour the fat under it. The technique makes it more powerful and produces great results.
How Does Morpheus8 Skin Tightening Work?
First, the surgeon will numb your skin using a numbing cream. Then they will clean the skin with an antibacterial formula to begin the micro-needling radiofrequency treatment. They will apply the procedure on the face or body for about 20 to 30 minutes.
The doctors can combine the Morpheus8 procedure with AccuTite™, a radiofrequency treatment for the lower face, tightening and contouring the skin close to the neck. A combination of the two procedures is more effective.
