Why and When Skin Laxity Happens

The Biology of Skin Aging

Skin aging is influenced primarily by the gradual decline in collagen and elastin production. These proteins are what keep skin elastic and firm during youth. As we age, the skin’s ability to regenerate these proteins diminishes, leading to increased fragility and reduced elasticity. This intrinsic aging process is inevitable, affecting the structural integrity and appearance of the skin.

Factors That Accelerate Skin Aging

External elements can hasten the aging process of the skin beyond natural biological aging. Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays, pollution, and tobacco smoke are some of the most common contributors that damage skin cells and accelerate collagen breakdown. Lifestyle choices such as poor diet, inadequate hydration, and insufficient sleep can also influence the rate at which skin aging occurs.

Common Areas Affected by Skin Laxity

Skin laxity tends to become more apparent in areas that are frequently exposed to movement and environmental factors. The face, neck, and upper arms are among the most commonly affected areas. Over time, these areas may exhibit signs such as drooping, wrinkles, and a general appearance of being less firm.

Morpheus8 RF Microneedling

RF microneedling is a treatment that can tighten the skin without surgery. It includes two types of technology: microneedling, which involves piercing the skin with tiny needles, and radiofrequency, which involves the application of heat energy to the tissues. This combination of treatments can treat sagging and other signs of aging while restoring the overall look and texture of the skin. 

How RF Microneedling Works

The microchannels made in the skin with the needles on the Morpheus8 device work by tricking your body into thinking there is an injury. While the needles are gentle enough to prevent tearing or damage to the skin, your body has a healing response. Each needle is also equipped with radiofrequency energy, which contracts existing protein fibers. The heat also promotes collagen stimulation over the next few weeks, which enhances the immediate effects.

The Depth and Precision of Morpheus8 Treatments

The precision of Morpheus8 allows for adjustable depths, making it suitable for various skin types and concerns. Because of this, microneedling benefits can be enjoyed by many different patients, whether they are concerned about fine wrinkles, deep wrinkles, or stubborn acne scars. Morpheus8 also allows for the treatment of small and precise areas and larger and more widespread areas with the same beneficial effects. 

What Areas Can Be Treated With RF Microneedling?

  • Cheeks, Jawline, and Forehead: Microneedling is perfect for the facial area, specifically targeting the cheeks, jawline, and forehead. It helps reduce sagging and lines in these areas and can provide a more contoured and lifted facial profile.
  • Neck and Decolletage: The delicate skin on the neck and decolletage responds well to RF microneedling. This treatment can reduce signs of aging like wrinkles and skin laxity and give these areas a more youthful appearance.
  • Arms and Knees: Microneedling with RF is particularly beneficial for tightening loose skin around the arms and knees. It improves skin elasticity and reduces the crepey texture often seen in these areas.
  • Abdomen and Thighs: Treating the abdomen and thighs with radiofrequency microneedling can help tighten the skin and improve overall tone. This treatment is ideal for addressing skin laxity caused by factors like aging or weight changes.

Your Morpheus8 Treatment, Step-by-Step

Cleaning and Preparing the Skin

Before your RF microneedling treatment begins, we clean and prepare your skin to ensure it is free of any makeup, oils, or impurities. Once the skin is clean, a topical numbing cream may also be applied to enhance comfort during the process.

Creating the Microchannels

The next step involves using the microneedling device to create tiny microchannels across the treatment area. This process is carefully controlled to penetrate the skin at the optimal depth, preparing it for the enhanced absorption of radiofrequency energy and subsequent serums or products. Radiofrequency energy is also applied during this stage of the treatment. 

Cooling and Aftercare

After the radiofrequency microneedling treatment, the skin is cooled to soothe any immediate redness or swelling. This is also an optimal time to apply specialized serums, as the microchannels allow for better penetration of skincare products. Choosing the right post-treatment skincare and avoiding exfoliation until the skin heals are both important as you seek to support and extend your treatment results.

Your Microneedling Results

Post-treatment, you can expect some microneedling results in the form of tightening right away, more noticeable improvements as the skin produces more collagen, and final results after several treatments. We will build your treatment plan and determine the number of sessions depending on how severe your concerns are and how well your skin responds.
