If you’ve been following the latest fascinating advances in the life of the nonsurgical face lift, you know there’s a new best approach, and it’s changing the very face of the practice! While the Uthera and Profound were considered the most advanced nonsurgical face lift procedures not long ago, the Morpheus 8 has taken it to the next level. Considered an innovative, industry-leading technology, the new device is used to lift, tighten, contour, and smooth your skin. The Morpheus8 can be used for nonsurgical neck lifts, face lifts, blepharoplasty, and brow lifts: its parameters are simply adjusted to treat different areas as needed. The result? A total face and neck lift revolution.
The Morpheus8 science
The Morpheus8 uses a state-of-the-art fractional device which delivers positively charged probe-needles through the skin and into the superficial fat where strong radiofrequency energy emits heat which tightens soft tissue by coagulating that superficial fat—all while tightening and smoothing any overlying wrinkled or loose skin! In short, it’s capable of tightening your skin from the fat layer outward. Think of the Morpheus8 as a nonsurgical BodyTite that works externally, on top of the skin. Importantly, the device also shortens the connections to your skin known as the fibrous septal network (FSN), and it is precisely this FSN contraction that causes such significant tightening. The RF-induced heat also stimulates new collagen, elastin and ground substances which further help to tighten your soft tissue. The process addresses wrinkles, scars, irregular textures, enlarged pores, stretch marks and acne scars, to name a few.
The Morpheus8 procedure: what to expect at SpaMedica in Toronto
The Morpheus8 lift, called the Meta-Morpheus, can be performed in a single more assertive treatment, or over three sessions and just as many months. Your brow, upper and lower lids, face, and neck can be fully treated in less than an hour. Thanks to a bit of topical anesthetic cream and nitrous oxide or “laughing gas,” the procedure is very comfortable. If you plan on going the single treatment route, mesotherapy delivered lidocaine is injected below the skin to remove any discomfort. With a single treatment, expect to take 5 to 7 days off for swelling and some minor redness. And if you opt for the more moderate 3-session Meta-Morpheus protocol, one day off after each treatment is a good way to go. And the outcome? Well, because the Morpheus8 induces significant tightening of your deeper facial tissue and overlying skin, the results can last several years! To best protect your investment, however, you might opt for Forma, fractional RF, or laser treatments twice a year as low-level maintenance.
Dr. Mulholland has been a pioneer in the nonsurgical face lift sector for 15+ years and was one of the developers of the Morpheus8 Lift. He teaches the Morpheus8 treatment to doctors from all over North America and has developed custom Morpheus8 protocols for the brow and upper lids, lower lids, cheek, upper lip, jawline and neck, so you can rest assured, you’re in very capable hands. Many patients will also opt to undergo other aesthetic treatments at the same time, such as Botox, or dermal fillers, to treat other signs of aging that skin tightening and lifting alone can’t address.
