FaceTite and Morpheus8: Why Use Both?
While FaceTite and Morpheus8 are both incredible procedures for rejuvenating the facial skin, each has its own precise applications. FaceTite therapy is more about treating the tissue below the surface, helping with mild cases of loose, hanging skin and isolated pockets of fat.
Morpheus8 is more for superficial concerns on the upper skin layers, such as:
- Minor wrinkles
- Fine lines
- Liver spots
- Acne scars
- Surgery and injury scars
For many patients, it’s not one technique or the other. Instead, it often makes the most sense to combine FaceTite and Morpheus8 for overall smoother, tighter skin.
Complex Treatment Strategies at Ayim Aesthetic
For patient safety and the best possible results, combination treatments should always be performed under the leadership of a trained physician. At Ayim Aesthetic in Houston, FaceTite and Morpheus8 are effectively administered by triple board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Daisy A Ayim. Her innate ability to provide patients with natural-looking results is held in high regard by her patients.
The Similarities Between FaceTite and Morpheus8
The technology behind the FaceTite and Morpheus8 devices is the same in one major regard: radiofrequency (RF). In both procedures, a special applicator is used to apply RF energy to skin tissue, stimulating the body’s production of collagen. This structural protein is vital in the creation of new dermal tissue for younger-looking skin with improved elasticity.
How FaceTite is Used for Facial Contouring
With FaceTite, the RF energy is released through a tiny electrode inserted just underneath the skin with a cannula. In addition to encouraging a large amount of collagen production, RF energy “melts” the nearby targeted fat tissue, which is suctioned out through the cannula.
How Morpheus8 Helps With the Finer Details
Morpheus8 works very differently, using RF energy along with the microneedling technique, as well. In this procedure, multiple tiny needles are used to penetrate through the epidermis (top layer of skin) and into the upper layers of the dermis. Microneedling on its own is already a great collagen-stimulating therapy. But through the needles of the Morpheus8 device, we can also administer RF energy for even more robust topical results.
Skin Remodeling Based Around You
Of course, FaceTite and Morpheus8 are far from your only options for skincare treatments at Ayim Aesthetic. For example, BodyTite takes the same principles behind FaceTite therapy and applies them to larger sections of the body, like the arms, chest, abdomen, thighs, knees, and buttocks.
Most patients aren’t limited to non-surgical means, either. When symptoms have advanced past the effectiveness of minimally invasive strategies, Dr. Ayim has helped countless patients feel good in their own skin with her face, body, and breast cosmetic surgery procedures.
Regardless of which treatment(s) you are interested in, the first step is always to meet with us for an initial consultation. Contact Ayim Aesthetic in Houston today to get started!
