Skin tightening without a scar.
At Carruthers Cosmetic, we offer Morpheus8 as a non-surgical skin tightening treatment for the body and face.
Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, tissues of the face and body can be remodeled to reveal a more radiant youthful appearance.
Morpheus8 can be used on any areas that can benefit from resurfacing and subdermal renewal. The most commonly treated areas include the face, periorbital area, abdomen, thighs, legs, and buttocks.
Radiofrequency (RF) energy is a scientifically proven method to remodel and rebuild collagen. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew the deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime. The benefit of Morpheus8’s colour blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types. The unique properties allow even darker tones to be treated.

What to Expect
The skin is numbed with a topical anesthetic cream before the procedure. Some patients also take a Tylenol. The procedure is done by Dr Jean Carruthers and takes 30-60 minutes. Most patients report a discomfort level of 2-4/10 with topical anesthetic and comment that there is no discomfort after the treatment session. Some pinkness and swelling may last up to 3 days.
The treatment is generally repeated every 3-4 weeks to achieve incremental improvement. Usually 3-6 treatment sessions are recommended. Maintenance treatments can be done yearly as necessary afterwards. A test patch may be requested to ensure treatment compatibility.
Visible results can be seen within a few days. Full results are visible 6-8 months post-treatment.
