Your body has amazing built-in abilities to heal and renew itself. Harnessing these abilities is one way to remodel and revitalize the skin, potentially reducing common signs of the aging process. Dr. Brad Gandolfi is pleased to provide his patients in NYC with Morpheus8, an advanced, minimally invasive treatment for facial and body skin remodeling.
How Does Morpheus8 Work?
Morpheus8 is a type of microneedling procedure. It works by creating a number of micro-injuries to the skin, triggering the body’s natural ability to heal and boost collagen production.
Unlike more traditional microneedling procedures, Morpheus8 works with radiofrequency (RF) energy, administered deep in the skin tissue for further thickening and tightening. It is this energy that causes the tissue remodeling and fat reduction seen with Morpheus8.
Morpheus8 can improve the appearance of:
- Excess facial or neck fat
- Sagging or jowling in the face or neck
- Rough or uneven skin texture
- Facial or body scarring, including acne scarring
- Deep lines and creases
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
Your journey will begin with a one-on-one appointment with Dr. Gandolfi, who will assess your skin condition and listen to your aesthetic concerns. Dr. Gandolfi will let you know whether Morpheus8 is right for you or recommend alternative treatments when appropriate.
For your Morpheus8 treatment, you will receive a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort. A small handheld applicator, which houses several tiny needles, will be used to create micro-injuries to the skin and emit radiofrequency energy.
