Dr. Flora Levin is proud to offer Morpheus8 in Westport, CT! Morpheus8 is a microneedling device that is unlike any other that currently exists. It utilizes radiofrequency energy to remodel and contour the face and body via subdermal adipose remodeling. This fractional treatment penetrates deep into the skin and fat for a smoother and sleeker appearance.
Like any form of energy, RF can produce heat. Heating the skin’s deeper layers induces new collagen and elastin production and encourages cell turnover, helping loose skin become firmer, thicker, and more youthful-looking.
An advantage of using RF to heat tissues, as opposed to lasers (which use higher-frequency light waves), is that the lower frequency of RF can safely penetrate to a deeper level, helping to improve skin tone and structure, even lifting tissues.
Lasers, for the most part, work to improve the skin’s surface. Moreover, RF can safely treat more patients with different skin tones without risking permanent discoloration.
