5 Signs of Facial Aging We Can Reverse With Morpheus8

Anti-aging treatments have moved from being a secret to being all the rage — from ever-advancing technology to an expanded stock of collagen and elastin supplements at your local pharmacy, the wellness and beauty industry has made the fight against aging an all-out melee. 

You don’t have to be left out of the ring. If something as drastic as cosmetic surgery isn’t for you, 

the experienced professionals at Pure Touch Skin Center have another solution:- the innovative Morpheus8 by InMode. With convenient locations in Glendale and Sherman Oaks, California, Pure Touch Skin Center is your destination for skin solutions that work.

What’s happening to my skin?

What’s happening to your skin is what happens to us all, if we’re lucky enough to live to an advanced age. As we get older, different parts of our body function differently. Joints become a little stiffer, we become a little slower and more tired in the evening, and our skin changes in ways that, despite knowing what’s coming, we still don’t expect. 

The aging process can be beautiful, if we’re lucky enough to age gracefully. Although our experts at Pure Touch Skin Center won’t be able to give you back what you miss from your 20s, they can certainly make the process of aging a little easier by sprucing up what you see in the mirror. 

Our skin is our largest organ, a strong and complicated collection of proteins, aided in its health by your diet and other lifestyle habits. You already know the importance of getting plenty of fruits, vegetables, grains, and lean protein in your diet as well as the absolute importance of quitting smoking. Part of the reason for all these is their effect on your skin’s ability to bounce back from damage. 

The makeup of our skin is primarily collagen, elastin, and water. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein in our bodies. It’s found primarily in skin and other organs, but can also be found in bones, joints, and connective tissues. 

Collagen is a tough protein. Its job is to provide structure to the skin, preventing skin from wrinkling and folding. Elastin, like collagen, prevents skin from wrinkling, but elastin enables it to spring back into place after being pinched or stretched. Together, these proteins are central to anti-aging and make a big difference when you’re treating your skin. 

What are five signs of facial aging that Morpheus 8 treats?

If you’re looking for a powerful anti-aging tool, look no further than Morpheus8. Morpheus8 combines two well-known and clinically proven methods of fighting signs of aging: microneedling and radiofrequency waves

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, makes tiny puncture wounds in the skin. This forces collagen production, which lifts the skin at the site of fine lines and wrinkles. Radiofrequency waves penetrate the skin, further boosting collagen production and stimulating blood flow to the treatment site or sites. 

Morpheus8 can address multiple skin concerns each session. Stretch marks and hyperhidrosis may not be signs of aging, but Morpheus8 successfully treats these issues, as well as: 

If you’re living with acne scarring, cellulite, or old scars from surgery or injury, Morpheus8 could be the treatment for you. Each treatment lasts for 30 minutes or less, and nearly everyone is a candidate.

Is there anything else I should know?

Although this procedure is minimally invasive, we need to understand everything that could be affecting you before recommending treatment. You will sit with your provider for a full consultation before you get started with Morpheus8, so make sure to call us for an appointment as soon as you can. 

Though microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure, you will need to take extra care of yourself and your skin after your procedure. If you’re feeling any pain, call your provider at Pure Touch Skin Center for recommendations, but you may get relief from your regular over-the-counter painkiller. 

Skip makeup for the 24 hours following your procedure. Stay out of direct sunlight for at least the next few weeks, and be sure to apply an SPF of at least 30 before going outside. You can resume your normal activities immediately after your procedure, and make sure to drink plenty of water. 

Let’s go back in time.

If you’d like to try Morpheus8, give us a call! We’d love to help you, and if we determine that you’re a candidate, we’ll schedule you for a time and date convenient to you. Call us at 818-275-2771, or book an appointment with us online.
