Morpheus 8

Morpheus 8  treatment for wrinkles, loose skin, and acne scars | Los Angeles, Glendale Burbank, Pasadena.

Morpheus8 is a new popular treatment option in Los Angeles requested by women and men seeking to improve the appearance of their skin.  Morheus8 is a non-surgical treatment performed in the office.  Morpheus 8 treatments allow to  remodel the subdermal and adipose layers of the skin.  These treatments help improve skin changes related to aging ( such as wrinkles and loose skin), certain scars, small areas of fat excess,  and scars related to acne.

WHAT IS MORPHEUS8? Morpheus8  combines microneedling with fractionated radio frequency enervery (RF) to treat the skin.  Microneedles go in and out of the skin. As the microneedles enter the skin, they deliver fractionated RF to the subdermis and adipose layer promoting collagen (see images below). The collagen-stimulating  effect of microneedling and radiofrequency energy results in smoother and tighter skin. Treatment of  the deeper, fatty, layer below the dermis will allow to reduce the amount of fat in that layer.  Morpheus8 treatments are minimally invasive with almost no downtime.
