Morpheus8 can be used on any area of the face or body that would benefit from skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, and refined contouring. Morpheus8 is an incredible treatment for the face and neck, as well as scars, knees, sketch marks, bat wings/arms, stomach, back, thighs and buttocks! Depending on your particular needs and desires, 1-3 treatments are typical. Treatments are permanent, but skin continues to age consistent with lifestyle and genetics. Skin needs to be encouraged to continue to create new collagen and elastin in order to maintain a youthful appearance. Therefore, subsequent treatments be recommended every 18m-2years as part of a rejuvenation maintenance program. Some tightening will be visible immediately. New collagen and elastin formation begins after 4 weeks, and becomes most noticeable about 3-6m after tx, and continues to improve up to 1yr. Healthy individuals from 30-60yrs and older are ideal candidates. Must not be pregnant or breastfeeding, undergoing radiation txs or have an active infection in the treatment area. Treatment costs will vary depending on aesthetic goals. Your Aesthetic RN will help you develop the perfect plan for YOU! **Must have an Aesthic Consultation with an RN before scheduling Morpheus8.
