The inevitable aging process brings many changes to the human body, with the loosening of skin being one of the most common visible signs. Loose or discolored skin can be a source of great embarrassment, but luckily there are ways to treat it. Atlanta’s own Trilogy Med Spa can provide the answer through their Morpheus8 procedure.
At Trilogy Med Spa in Alpharetta, you will be given the one-on-one attention that you deserve. You will be in the capable hands of Dr. Windsor, assisted by Dr. Mullins. Dr. Windsor is a board-certified physician in pain management, and he will be involved in the process from the initial consultation.
Dr. Mullins is the talented, board-certified plastic surgeon who works alongside Dr. Windsor. He performs the surgical procedures at Trilogy, using his four decades of experience in the field to give you the optimal results that you are looking for..
Morpheus8 is a subtle, non-surgical method of restoring the youthful appearance of skin. It is popular in Atlanta for people who are looking to revamp the appearance of their face and/or body.
The way the procedure works is through micro-needling and radiofrequency. Your physician will use very small, sterilized needles to prick your skin and administer radiofrequency waves. These waves heat and break up the collagen in your skin, which eventually will reform and become tighter than they were before
The radiofrequency waves will also target small areas of fat deposits that contribute to a patient’s loose skin. The fat cells will break apart and start to pass naturally through the body.
The number of treatments a patient will need depends on the area and severity of the case. For simple cosmetic changes, one treatment should suffice. For more in-depth cases, it may take two or three treatments, with at least one month between each treatment.
Morpheus8 can be performed as an outpatient procedure, with no need for general anesthesia. This makes it a good option for patients who are not local to Alpharetta, and who cannot take additional time off from work. The recovery time is also quick, with most patients resuming their normal activities later that same day. This treatment is beneficial because it is very low risk and is non-invasive. After one treatment, you can expect to notice the following changes:
Drs. Windsor and Mullins of Alpharetta’s Trilogy Med Spa will thoroughly examine you and your medical history to determine if you are a good candidate for Morpheus8. Typically, a good candidate will include the following attributes:
The risks vary depending on the reasons for treatment, and factors to consider include age, type of hormone therapy, and health. HRT adverse effects may include:
In addition, therapy may also place you at increased risks for certain health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and blood clots. Your physician will discuss possible risks with you in detail during a consultation.
Will there be any discomfort?
The procedure is designed to be as comfortable for the patient as possible. A topical numbing cream may be applied to the area to ensure there is no pain.
What is the aftercare like?
You may experience mild swelling and redness in the area for 3-5 days after treatment. Take it easy while you rest and avoid direct sunlight, but you should not need to perform any additional aftercare. Call your physician if you are having concerns about your recovery.
