It all started…

A few months ago, I noticed that my skin just wasn’t as bright and tight as when I was younger. I needed something that would help my uneven skin tone and texture, reverse sun damage, and make me look years younger.

Friends who are my age look great, so I asked them for some advice and then Googled their recommendations for microneedling, called Morpheus8.

I discovered that Microneedling is an excellent procedure to achieve a more radiant and youthful appearance. Okay, this is for me! And Imami Skin and Cosmetic Center offers the latest technology in Microneedling, called Morpheus8.

Enter Morpheus8…

Morpheus8 is the newest skin tightening device that combines microneedling with radio frequency energy to remodel and contour skin. The treatment is designed to stimulate collagen and elastin production by penetrating the skin (with tiny needles; smaller than a strand of hair.) Morpheus8 can treat the face, arms, abdomen, legs, and buttocks.

The medical aesthetician advised that to see results, it is important to receive a series of at least three sessions of Morpheus8. This is not just a one and done treatment. Stimulating the body’s own collagen production takes time and patience.

I was given a complimentary consultation and free computerized skin analysis with the medical aesthetician and had my first Morpheus8 treatment the same day.

I was concerned that it might be painful. After all, Morpheus8 involves inserting tiny needles into your skin. But my aesthetician applied numbing cream to my face and told me that if I needed additional relief from any pain  or discomfort, I could utilize laughing gas as well.

My skin was slightly red for a day or two following each Morpheus 8 treatment. Other possible side effects, including slight swelling, are typically mild, and they diminish quickly.

Noticing results…

After my initial treatment, my complexion already looked brighter, thanks to improved blood flow and cell turnover. My second treatment was scheduled for one month later, as 4-6 weeks is recommended between treatments. Now after completing all three treatments, I am seeing incredible results. Even my hyperpigmentation (sunspots, freckles, etc.) has lightened.

After-care was a breeze. I took it easy for the first 24 hours and avoided things like tanning beds, the gym, yoga, swimming, and basically anything that might cause sweating. There were also a few skin products to avoid, including makeup for 1-2 days. Anything that is applied to the skin within 24 hours will be absorbed deep into the skin via the little channels created by the needles. This made it an excellent time to nourish my skin with high quality serums and recovery creams.

I was thrilled with my experience with Morpheus8, the staff, and the medical aesthetician at Imami Skin and Cosmetic Center. Most of all, I am thrilled with the results achieved with Morpheus8.
