Morpheus 8 treatment for stretch marks
Stretch marks are atrophic scars that are formed due to the fact that the skin is stretched. They appear as stripes; their color scale at the same time varies from bluish to almost white.
Stretch marks tend to appear on different parts of the body: on the chest, abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and other areas of the skin. Women are more common, but it is not uncommon for men to face this problem. Stretch marks are either single or multiple.
Is it possible to treat stretch marks? Definitely yes, and it’s much easier than it might seem. Today Morpheus 8 treatment allows you to achieve unprecedented results with excellent safety and tolerability.
What's new in Inmode Morpheus 8?
InMode Morpheus8 is a special handpiece, which is used for needle RF lifting. With the help of this procedure, you can improve the structure of the skin, even out its relief, and eliminate wrinkles, and scars. The technique is effective and helps to achieve noticeable results after just one session!
Thanks to the Morpheus8 handpiece, the RF-lifting procedure has become much more effective and safer. With the help of the Morpheus 8 treatment, it is possible to act at a strictly defined depth of the subdermal layer, bypassing the epidermis and without causing burns to the skin surface. Each tip of this device is equipped with 24 insulating polymer-coated needles.
The device allows the aesthetician to individually adjust the penetration depth with an accuracy of 1 mm, and thus ensure uniform heating of tissues with different thicknesses of the fat and muscle layers, and for the first time makes it possible to work with eyelid tissues. Fractional RF technology achieves more pronounced heating and coagulation results than conventional surface techniques.
For example, non-invasive variants of RF-lifting, by heating the skin surface first of all, can achieve heating of the subdermal layer only up to 43-45°, while the microneedle nozzle heats the tissues adjacent to the electric blower up to 60-80°, bypassing the epidermis. To date, Morpheus 8 treatment has the greatest depth of impact of any RF technology approved by the FDA.
Why do stretch marks occur?
Stretch marks in the skin occur due to the rupture of the fibers. When studying the structure of the skin, we know that the layers of the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis are located in it from top to bottom. The elastin and collagen fibers in the dermis layer are essential for healthy-looking skin. When the destruction of the fibers occurs, damage appears on the skin. One such deterioration is the “cracking of the skin”. In women, this condition most often occurs during pregnancy. Especially women who gain weight in the last months of pregnancy. During pregnancy, the skin is subjected to a lot of stress. Fissures in the abdomen, inner legs, and chest can occur with weight and swelling.
Other than pregnancy, the cause of “skin cracking” has not been definitively established. However, muscle development, bodybuilding, and frequent fluctuation in weight during adolescence are known to cause skin cracking. Stretch marks can also appear due to hormones. Hormonal changes cause cracks in the skin as well.
Studies have shown that obese people are 40 percent more likely to have stretch marks. Stretch marks can appear due to the use of drugs, or certain diseases. Elastin and collagen fibers are known to be destroyed, especially in patients using systemic cortisone. This situation sets the stage for stretch marks.
Consumption can occur due to a condition called Cushing’s syndrome, in which cortisol levels fluctuate constantly. In addition, it has been found that cracks can occur without any other cause. Fissures that occur without a cause are called idiopathic fissures in medical parlance.
Morpheus 8 treatment for stretch marks on the skin
Morpheus 8 treatment is conducted by a device that uses specially designed needles to treat stretch marks. It is the deepest and most FDA-approved technology. The specially designed needle covered with spider-like electrodes is extremely effective. These needles deliver intense energy to every point under the skin. The Morpheus 8 treatment has a triple effect. The first effect is an intense and uniform transfer of energy.
The second effect is a deep structuring of the skin on the surface. Finally, this device can have a versatile application. The application of the device can be done as 2mm, 3mm, and 4mm. This is a method that has been used for a long time, which is why it’s really reliable. Also, the success rate for Morpheus 8 treatment is high.
Is Morpheus 8 treatment safe?
- Only disposable tips with insulated microneedles are used during the Morpheus 8 procedure.
- By minimizing exposure to the skin surface, it has been possible to reduce the recovery period from several weeks (compared to previous generations of fractional RF) to 1-2 days.
- Morpheus 8 treatment does not cause burns on the skin surface and traces of the procedure disappear within 2-3 hours.
- It does not affect skin chromophores, that is, the procedure does not have such undesirable effects as skin pigmentation.
- Although the Morpheus 8 procedure is invasive, the small diameter of the microneedles minimizes pain and requires local topical anesthetics or cooling to be performed.
- Thus, the safety profile of Morpheus 8 significantly outperforms comparable RF and laser treatments of previous generations.
How many Morpheus 8 treatments do I need?
Morpheus 8 treatment is a non-invasive, in-office treatment that produces visible results in as little as one session. It can take 1 – 2 months for the new collagen to create visible improvements in the appearance of your skin.
This treatment delivers some incredible results. The initial improvement of the skin will be noticeable immediately, but those improvements will continue to develop as the body creates more collagen and elastin in the treatment area. A slow and steady improvement will be visible in the quality and health of the skin as the body continues to make more collagen. The skin will get tighter, and firmer, and you’ll see many of your problem areas slowly improve.
Results take a few weeks to appear as the body begins to create more collagen, but your results will become more noticeable each day. Once you achieve your final results, they can last up to a year or longer based on the state of your skin at the time of treatment.
