How To Get An Age-Defying Appearance Without Surgery
You may be aware that the tried-and-true way to turn back the clock on your facial appearance is through a facelift, but it’s understandable that some people are wary of or not eligible for plastic surgery.
Fortunately, there are several ways to achieve a more youthful, smooth, and radiant appearance without the need for incisions or extended downtime. Non-surgical treatments to tighten the skin and stimulate collagen production are becoming increasingly popular, and not just among older people.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Angelchik offers several minimally invasive and completely non-invasive technologies to help people stave off the effects of aging and maintain a youthful appearance.
The non-invasive Morpheus8 treatment offers the deepest treatments available for skin remodeling and collagen stimulation for both the face and body. It utilizes 24 insulated microneedles that can penetrate deeply into and throuugh the skin to reach the precise depth of the dermis or subcutaneous fat, kickstarting collagen contraction, fat ablation and the creation of new collagen and elastin fibers for long-lasting skin tightening results. Needle penetration depth is controlled by the operator via the computer attached to the Morpheus8 handpiece.
In addition to the proven benefits of microneedling, Morpheus8 also delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy to the skin in three distinct levels, boosting the skin’s collagen production even further. This sophisticated process also minimizes the risk for skin injury, increases the uniformity of results, and allows Dr. Angelchik to fully customize the procedure for your specific needs and skin condition.
Unlike surgery, Morpheus8 treatments can be performed in under an hour and patients can go about their business immediately following treatment. During a Morpheus8 session, Dr. Angelchik or his licensed aesthetician will first numb the skin to ensure the treatment is comfortable and painless. Then, the Morpheus8 handpiece is passed over your desired treatment area, with multiple passes at different depths tailored to theface, neck, or area of the body.
You will likely experience mild to moderate skin tenderness and redness after Morpheus8. Dr. Angelchik will instruct you on when it’s safe to apply makeup after facial treatment, usually after a few days. You’ll start to see results within a week, and as the skin continues to produce collagen, your results will improve over time, out to 6 – 9 month
Many people are satisfied with the results of just one treatment, but a series of Morpheus8 treatments is usually recommended to achieve greater skin tightening and wrinkle reduction. Maintenance treatments, provided annually can refresh the collagen in the treatment area and preserve the benefits of the earlier Morpheus series. Proper skin care, sun avoidance, nutrition, and a healthy lifestyle will also help improve and maintain your results.
Anti-aging and skin tightening treatments aren’t just for people looking for reversal of wrinkles and skin laxity. It’s known that we start producing less collagen around age 20, meaning some early signs of aging can appear as early as the 30s. Plus, there’s some evidence that shows having treatments performed at a young age can help prevent the formation of wrinkles and keep skin tight longer than would have otherwise been possible.
So when should you consider getting either surgical or non-surgical treatments? The answer varies by your specific concerns or problem areas.
