Morpheus8 in Fort Myers
ALSO SERVING PATIENTS IN NAPLES AND BONITA SPRINGS
Dr. Douglas Stevens is pleased to announce a new tool in his anti-aging arsenal at Stevens Facial Plastic & Laser Center. Morpheus8 is a breakthrough treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to improve the appearance of loose, wrinkled skin on the face and neck. The in-office treatment can be performed without surgery, significant downtime or pain.
If you are looking for a conservative treatment to help you look as young as you feel, Morpheus8 may be the ideal solution for you.
How It Works
Morpheus8 rejuvenates loose or wrinkled skin by triggering the production of new collagen. Collagen is essential to firm, smooth skin, but unfortunately our natural production of collagen dwindles as our bodies age.
Morpheus8 combines radiofrequency with microneedling. Microneedling is the practice of using a needle-tipped device to create tiny punctures in the skin. The body responds by producing more collagen to repair these wounds. As a result, the skin gradually starts to look firmer, smoother and plumper in the weeks following treatment.
Adding radiofrequency energy intensifies the effects of microneedling by generating heat in the deep layers of the skin for a tightening and contouring effect.
You may see benefits from Morpheus8 if you are self-conscious of any of the following signs of aging:
- fine wrinkles or lines on the lower face and neck
- mild sagging of the facial skin
- mild jowls
- uneven skin texture or scarring
Morpheus8 Treatment Details
Morpheus8 is conveniently performed in our office. The targeted skin is numbed and cleansed. Then, the treatment handpiece is passed over the skin. Depending on your specific needs, you may opt to treat your full face, or a limited area such as your neck or jawline. It takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes to treat the entire face and neck.
After a Morpheus8 treatment, the affected skin may be mildly red and feel slightly tight for a few days. However, there is little to no downtime required. Dr. Stevens will provide you with complete recovery instructions, including a timeline for returning to work, exercise and other regular activities.
For the best results, Dr. Stevens recommends a series of at least three treatments, spaced six to eight weeks apart. He will evaluate your specific skin concerns and skin type when making personalized treatment recommendations.
