What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is the first and only aesthetic treatment of its kind. Its cutting-edge microneedling system delivers a finely tuned bolt of RF energy to the depths of your skin to simultaneously kickstart collagen production, tighten the skin, brighten its tone and give it a healthy, revitalized and youthful glow. (And, yes, it’s named after Morpheus of that movie, or the legendary Greek God of Dreams.)

   
Morpheus8 uses a matrix of 24 micro pins that penetrate 4 millimeters into the skin to reach the layers of the dermis where stimulation will be most effective. The energy generates a warmth that hyper-activates collagen production, unveiling improved skin complexion and texture and a vastly more radiant and youthful appearance.

The technology (called fractionated radiofrequency energy) is a scientifically proven means of reducing wrinkles and fat and rebuilding collagen to generate a nice overall improvement in skin texture, reduce fine and deep lines, slow the aging process and leave you looking great.

Benefits of Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is more advanced than traditional microneedling and offers many more benefits, including:

*Repairing sun damage to skin
*Increasing the production of collagen
*Reducing wrinkles and fading stretch marks
*It is safe on all skin tones and for all skin types
*There are very few contraindications to the procedure
*All parts of the treated area are improved uniformly
*The Morpheus8 has very little risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, something more common with other means of skin resurfacing.
*Little to no thermal damage to the skin
*No patient downtime is required

Am I a candidate for Morpheus8?

The Morpheus8 is ideally suited to patients looking to reduce skin sagging, skin laxity and signs of aging on the face, neck and body — as well as patients who’d simply like to take proactive preventative action against facial aging. Persons with light to moderate jowls, wrinkles and folds will also benefit, and because Morpheus8 is a “colorblind” technology, it is fit for use by people of all skin types.

What areas does the Morpheus8 treat?

Morpheus8 can be used on almost any area of the body that can benefit from renewal and rejuvenation, including any area of the face and body that exhibits wrinkles, discoloration, stretch marks or acne scars. The areas most commonly treated are the face and neck.

 


 

What Is Lumecca?

Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. After just one use, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin. Lumecca operates using photothermolysis, which provides a photofacial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment.

What sets Lumecca apart?

The technology in Lumecca uses a higher peak power in order to deliver a stronger result, which leads to fewer treatments than other IPL machines on the market.

What are the benefits?

n just 1-3 sessions Lumecca improves the appearance of:

• Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)

• Vascular lesions such as facial telangiectasias (spider veins) and poikiloderma

• Rosacea (redness)

• Freckles

• Sun damage

 

   

What areas can be treated?

Lumecca can be used on all areas of the body. The most common areas of treatment are zones that are regularly exposed to the sun. This often includes the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.

What steps must be taken before the procedure?

Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month prior to treatment.

What should I expect during and after Lumecca?

During treatment there will be a bright flash of light from the Lumecca that feels like a light elastic sensation. Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and usually subsides within an hour. Over the next 24-48 hours you may see a darkening of pigmented spots; in the week afterwards the pigmented lesions flake off, leading to an evening out of skin tone. After treating vascular lesions you may see the vein blanch and disappear or a color change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.

How many sessions are required?

An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session. Multiple sessions provide even better results. Treatment regime depends on the severity of skin damage, skin type, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) and energy settings.

How quickly will I see results?

Sun damage and skin complexion results can be seen a few days after the first session. The skin will continue to look younger and more brilliant over time with most visible results after 1-2 weeks. Having multiple photofacial sessions will improve the final result. For vascular treatments such as facial telangiectasias, results can be seen in up to 2 weeks.

Are there any side effects?

Most patients do not experience any side effects and any skin reaction usually resolves within a few hours. Patients may find they are sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning.

“I would definitely recommend Lumecca. I like how it brightened my face and gave me a beautiful glow. I can really see a difference.” – PAMELA, PATIENT

Pigment & vascular issues

For patients looking to address facial pigmentation, superficial vessels, skin texture and/or photodamage, IPL is the optimal solution. IPL treatments improve skin complexion, reduce skin irregularities and help patients look years younger. IPL “photofacial” helps address age spots (red/brown pigmentation), sun damage, vascular lesions (spider veins, port wine stains, leg telangiectasias), rosacea (redness) and freckles. The most common areas of treatment are zones that are regularly exposed to the sun. This often includes the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.
