Benefits of Morpheus8 in the Jaw Area
Morpheus8 is a one-of-a-kind, non-surgical treatment that uses radio frequency energy to smooth and contour the face, neck, and jaw area. The fractional radio frequency energy stimulates collagen, elastin, and new skin cells. This in return improves lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and tightens the skin.
When Morpheus8 is used in the jaw area you can expect a chiseled, more defined jaw. The jaw line can be one of the first areas of the face that starts to age. As the face begins to drop, the formation of jowls begins. Before Morpheus8, one of the best options to correct jowls was a surgical facelift or mini-lift called the MACS Facelift.
Benefits of Morpheus 8 include:
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Improves tone and texture
- Fades stretch marks and acne scars
- Increased collagen, elastin and new skin cell production
- Minimal-to-no pain
- No downtime
- Short treatment time
- Safe and FDA approved
During a typical Morpheus8 treatment, you can expect it to last anywhere from 60-90 minutes. To make this treatment as comfortable as possible, we first apply numbing cream to the areas being treated for the first hour. If you are someone who gets a little more anxious, we also offer Pronox. It is a self-administered nitrous-oxide gas for pain and anxiety.
After the numbing is removed, the treatment begins. The radio frequency energy is delivered through tiny needles that penetrate the skin to a depth of up to 4 millimeters, leaving small wounds in the skin. These small wounds are what help stimulate the collagen and elastin production. Morpheus8 is so effective because the needles on the device penetrate the skin deeper than any other device on the market.
Once the treatment is over, it is very likely to see some pinpoint bleeding. Redness is also completely normal and can last up to one week. Morpheus8 is a non-invasive treatment. This means there really is low downtime. Post care products are given to the patient for successful healing. No other products or makeup should be applied to the skin for 24-48 hours. Most patients are able to return to work the next day.
Although the skin is typically healed within days of the treatment, the most apparent results will start to show over the next few months as new collagen and elastin are formed. To get the absolute best results, we recommend at least 3 treatments.
Candidates for Morpheus8 range from younger to more mature patients because of all the incredible benefits this device offers. Although it will not give the same results as surgery, it is a great non-invasive option to reverse signs of aging. This treatment can also be combined with multiple non-surgical and surgical procedures for total facial rejuvenation.
