The Science:

Skin resurfacing procedures are designed to improve the appearance and texture of the skin by addressing various skin concerns. The science behind skin resurfacing primarily involves the removal of damaged or aged outer layers of skin and the stimulation of collagen production. There are several methods of skin resurfacing, each with its unique scientific principles:

  • 1. Chemical Peels: Chemical peels typically involve the application of a chemical solution (such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or trichloroacetic acid) to the skin’s surface. These chemicals create a controlled injury to the skin, leading to the removal of the damaged epidermal layers. As the skin heals, it reveals smoother, fresher skin. Chemical peels can vary in depth, depending on the strength of the solution used.
  • 2. Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion employs a machine with a handheld device that exfoliates the skin’s surface using fine crystals or a diamond-tipped wand. This process removes the topmost layer of skin, including dead skin cells. The controlled exfoliation stimulates collagen production and promotes new skin cell growth.
  • 3. Laser Resurfacing: Laser resurfacing uses concentrated beams of light to precisely remove skin layers. The laser energy is absorbed by water in the skin, causing the targeted skin to vaporize or peel away. Different types of lasers, such as CO2 lasers or Erbium lasers, can be used for different levels of skin resurfacing, from superficial to deep. The controlled injury from the laser promotes collagen remodeling and the growth of new skin.
  • 4. Microneedling: Microneedling involves the use of a device with fine needles that create thousands of micro-injuries in the skin’s surface. These tiny wounds stimulate the body’s natural wound healing processes, which include collagen production and skin cell turnover. As the skin heals, it becomes firmer, smoother, and more even in tone and texture.
  • 5. Chemical Resurfacing: Chemical resurfacing involves the application of chemicals (such as liquid nitrogen) to freeze and peel away superficial skin layers. This method is often used to treat specific skin lesions or irregularities.
  • Radiofrequency (RF) Skin Resurfacing: RF technology uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production. This results in skin tightening and improved texture, with minimal damage to the outer skin layer.

The science behind these methods is centered on the concept of controlled skin injury and subsequent healing. This process triggers the production of collagen and elastin, which are vital components for healthy, youthful-looking skin. As damaged skin is removed or rejuvenated, skin concerns like wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, acne scars, and uneven texture are visibly reduced.

The specific technique chosen depends on the individual’s skin type, concerns, and the desired depth of resurfacing.

The Benefits:

Skin resurfacing offers several benefits for individuals looking to improve their skin’s appearance and address various concerns. The exact benefits can vary depending on the specific method of skin resurfacing used, but common advantages include:

Skin resurfacing can help to smooth out rough or uneven skin texture. It’s effective for addressing issues like acne scars, rough patches, and fine lines, resulting in a more youthful and smoother complexion.

Skin resurfacing treatments stimulate collagen production, which helps to fill in fine lines and wrinkles. As collagen production increases, skin becomes firmer, plumper, and more youthful in appearance.

Skin resurfacing can address sunspots, age spots, and other signs of sun damage. By removing the damaged outer layers of the skin, these treatments can reveal clearer, healthier skin underneath.

 For those with acne scars, skin resurfacing can help to minimize their appearance. It smooths out uneven skin tone and texture, making scars less noticeable.

Skin resurfacing can provide a radiant, refreshed look. By removing dull, dead skin cells and encouraging new cell growth, it reveals brighter and more youthful-looking skin.

 Skin resurfacing can help to even out skin tone by reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation or redness. This results in a more consistent and balanced complexion.

Some skin resurfacing methods can help to shrink the size of enlarged pores, leading to a smoother skin surface.

After skin resurfacing, the skin’s ability to absorb topical skincare products is enhanced, making your regular skincare routine more effective.

 Collagen is a crucial component of youthful skin. Skin resurfacing treatments stimulate collagen production, promoting skin elasticity and firmness.

Many skin resurfacing treatments have minimal downtime, allowing you to return to your normal activities relatively quickly. Deeper treatments may require more recovery time.

Skin resurfacing can be customized to your specific needs and concerns. The choice of resurfacing method can vary from gentle treatments for subtle improvements to more aggressive treatments for significant transformations.

Most skin resurfacing treatments are safe and non-invasive, reducing the risk of complications compared to more invasive procedures.

 Achieving smoother, healthier, and more youthful-looking skin can boost self-confidence and overall well-being.

It’s important to note that the benefits and results of skin resurfacing may vary based on the individual’s skin type, the specific treatment used, and the number of sessions required.

FAQs

Morpheus8 Skin Resurfacing uses a fine pin tip applicator to penetrate deeply into the skin, remodeling tissue and metabolizing subcutaneous fatty cells. Through mass heating, we can initiate a natural healing response below the skin’s surface, stimulating collagen production and cell renewal. By adding radiofrequency energy, Morpheus8 works deeper than fractional lasers, improving overall skin tone, removing most skin irregularities, and tightening lax skin for a youthful appearance. Based on your specific concerns, results can be seen within one session or a series of treatments.

Before your procedure, a topical numbing agent will be applied to the skin to avoid discomfort during your treatment. RF energy is distributed evenly to reduce redness, hot spots, burning sensation, and discomfort during treatment. The device is passed over the treatment area, slightly overlapping to ensure proper coverage.

After your initial treatment, your skin may look pink, even red, appearing like a slight sunburn. This is normal and will ease in a few days to one week. Over the following months, subdermal tissue repair is constantly working to increase new collagen, creating tighter skin and facial contouring with a smooth, clear, and radiant outcome.

Morpheus8 Skin Resurfacing is extremely safe and effective. By using an anesthetic numbing cream, we can ease any discomfort during your procedure. All skin types can be treated with minimal risk of hyperpigmentation which is common with other fractional devices.
