Tighten Up Those Problem Areas With Nonsurgical Body Contouring
Despite the remarkably advanced times we live in, there is still no way to prevent the natural aging process. Fortunately, however, modern medicine and technology allow us to reverse or delay many cosmetic signs of aging, including skin laxity. Even more exciting is that many of today’s skin tightening treatments are minimally invasive or completely nonsurgical, meaning patients can enjoy rapid results and get back to their regular routines quicker than ever. At VIP Cosmetic Surgery, board-certified surgeon Dr. Kenneth D. Farr is proud to offer the revolutionary Morpheus8 nonsurgical body contouring system for Hilton Head and Okatie, SC patients who desire firmer, more youthful-looking skin. Read on to discover how nonsurgical body contouring can help you, and find out where on the face and body this cutting-edge treatment can be used.
What is Morpheus8 body contouring?
The Morpheus8 body contouring system is a completely nonsurgical technology that utilizes radiofrequency energy and microneedling to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two of the most essential components for firm and healthy skin. This exciting treatment can address skin laxity and adipose tissue across both the face and body, helping patients to look younger and feel more confident in their own skin.
Where can nonsurgical body contouring with Morpheus8 be used?
Virtually any feature on the face or body can be tightened and recontoured with Morpheus8 body contouring and skin tightening. Some of the most commonly treated features include:
Does Morpheus8 hurt?
Prior to your Morpheus8 treatment, one of our experienced providers will cleanse and prepare the treatment area(s). A topical anesthetic will then be applied and allowed to sit for several minutes, ensuring the skin is as numb as possible before treatment. With this approach, most men and women tolerate Morpheus8 treatment extremely well. Following your treatment, it is normal to experience some level of discomfort, redness, and swelling as the skin heals. In addition, tiny pinpoint scabs will develop and flake off, though this is generally not considered a painful process.
How soon will I see results after Morpheus8?
Some patients report a difference in their skin as soon as one week after RF body contouring. On average, though, Morpheus8 takes about 3 – 4 weeks to produce visible results, during which time the body’s natural healing process and collagen production begin to ramp up. Over the next several weeks and months, patients can expect their results to continue improving, with the full effects of Morpheus8 becoming apparent after about 3 – 6 months.
How often can you get Morpheus8?
The frequency of your RF microneedling treatments will depend on the severity of your concerns, your response to treatment, and other factors. There’s no question that the most pleasing and longest-lasting results can be achieved with ongoing treatments at regular intervals as often as once per month. During your initial consultation for Morpheus8 microneedling in South Carolina, Dr. Farr will assess your skin laxity, discuss your ideal outcome, and recommend the most appropriate treatment schedule to help you achieve your ultimate goals.
