At Kafka Care in New York, NY, Dr. Kafka personally sees to all of your aesthetic treatments to ensure you are in the best hands and completely satisfied with the results. Let’s take a look at what you can expect from Morpheus8 RF microneedling treatments.
What Is Morpheus8 RF Microneedling?
Morpheus8 RJ microneedling is a fractional anti-aging treatment that harnesses the power of radiofrequency energy. It targets the deepest layers of your skin to promote the growth of collagen: the building block of young, tight, radiant skin.
The needles used are so fine they do not cause pain when they penetrate your skin. However, when the needles puncture the upper layers of your skin, “micro-injuries” occur. This causes your body to produce vital, healthy collagen to plump up gaunt, sunken cheeks and collarbones. This treatment can also be used to fill in and smooth lines and wrinkles.
The radiofrequency emitted from the device provides the deepest layers of your skin with energy. This allows for the beautiful recontouring and remodeling of the underlying tissue.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
The state-of-the-art Morpheus8 device can be used to treat just about any part of your face or body that needs subdermal renewal. Primarily used as an anti-aging treatment for the neck and lower face, it can successfully address acne scars on your back, wrinkles on your chest, and hyperpigmentation on your arms, among other uses.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
During your initial consultation, Dr. Kafka will advise you on how many treatment sessions you can expect before achieving your aesthetic goals. Most clients are satisfied with their results after only one to three treatment sessions.
How Soon Will I See Results?
You will start to see the results of your Morpheus8 RF microneedling treatment within a few days. However, it usually takes a few weeks for the most noticeable results to appear. One of the best things about treatment is that your results will continue to improve for up to three months after your final treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
The color-blind technology of this revolutionary device means it can be used on all skin types, tones and textures. The best candidate for this treatment is looking for a non-invasive, pain-free solution for skin discoloration, acne scarring, fine lines, moderate-to-severe wrinkles or lax skin. During your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Kafka, your aesthetic goals will be assessed to determine if this is the right anti-aging treatment for you.
If you want tighter, younger-looking skin without the downtime and recovery associated with an invasive medical procedure, this treatment is probably right for you.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
Because this innovative treatment is non-invasive, there aren’t many after-care instructions you need to follow. To protect the health and beauty of your skin, apply broad-spectrum sunscreen to the treated area several times per day. This should have a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 35. Don’t apply makeup to the treatment site for at least a day or two after your treatment.
Results: Cellulite Reduction
One of the greatest benefits of this treatment is cellulite reduction. Even people who have never been overweight in their lives have dimply skin that indicates there are fat deposits somewhere on their body. Cellulite is caused by enlarged fat cells that push through the dermal layer containing elastin and collagen.
No cream or ointment can penetrate deep enough into your skin to improve the appearance of these dimples. With microneedling, the distorted collagen is broken up and a brand new, fresh layer is created. This strong, healthy layer of collagen contains the engorged fat cells, leaving your skin looking smoother and more beautiful than ever before.
Process of Treatment
Your treatment session will last between 30 and 60 minutes depending on the size of the area you want to treat. To ensure you’re comfortable throughout your entire treatment, Dr. Kafka will apply a topical anesthetic.
The heat from the radiofrequency delivered by the fine needles is warm enough to sculpt your fat and skin effectively. However, it is gentle enough that it will not cause pain or damage any surrounding tissue. Even better, the temperature is accurately regulated to ensure smooth, uniform results.
This radiofrequency treatment can easily be combined with other complementary treatments. Some of our clients require other fractional RF treatments, like Forma, to provide further skin tightening benefits. Others are more concerned with the texture of their skin and opt for neuromodulator treatments or dermal fillers.
Neuromodulator treatments involve a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin type A. This is the active ingredient found in such injectables as BOTOX, Dysport and Xeomin. These treatments are used to address cosmetic concerns, such as crow’s feet, wrinkles between your eyebrows and fine lines around your mouth. Results from these treatments can be seen within 48 to 72 hours and last up to four months.
Dermal fillers are similar to radiofrequency anti-aging treatments in that they volumize your skin to fill in and smooth out lines and wrinkles. The active ingredient in these injectables is a synthetic version of the chemical compound hyaluronic acid, or HA. Like Morpheus8, these treatments stimulate your body’s growth of elastin and collagen to give you a more youthful look.
