Skin tightening without a scar.
At Carruthers Cosmetic, we use the Morpheus8 machine for non-invasive skin tightening. The Morpheus8 is a deep fractional treatment that delivers radiofrequency energy to multi-level depths in a single cycle for customized skin, tissue, fat and collagen remodeling with reduced treatment time.
When injected into the dermis of the skin and below into the underlying fibroseptal network (FSN), radiofrequency energy causes the skin to contract and stimulates our fibroblasts to get to work making more collagen and elastin after the treatment, which enhances the result further.
Radiofrequency energy is carefully selected because it does not affect melanin, so people of all skin tones can enjoy the benefits of this tightening treatment. In addition, there is no laser plume from the treatment so it is much safer than traditional laser skin tightening treatments such as Co2 and Erbium YAG treatments.
Maintenance treatments can be done yearly as necessary afterwards.

What to Expect
The skin is numbed with a topical anesthetic cream for one hour 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 2/10 and comment that there is no discomfort after the treatment session.
The treatment is repeated every 3- 4 weeks to achieve incremental improvement. Usually 3-6 treatment sessions are required.
