Morpheus 8 Body Treatment Areas

Leg Lift and Kneecap

What is leg prolapse and kneecap prolapse?

Leg prolapse refers to laxity in the inner leg, transverse lines and deep folds in the front leg (thigh) and around the kneecap.

What causes leg and kneecap sagging?

The most important cause of laxity in the skin of the legs and kneecaps is frequent weight gain and loss, as well as eating too sugary or salty food, sedentary life, insufficient exercise of the muscles, prolonged standing, the presence of varicose veins, and lymphatic circulation disorders.

How are leg sagging and kneecap sagging treated?

In the treatment of leg lift and kneecap skin, all the reasons I have listed among the causes of sagging can be treated together. It is difficult for the skin of someone with impaired lymphatic circulation or varicose veins to heal and be tight. Or the role of a sedentary life that does not exercise muscles in providing regular blood circulation, which is necessary for skin health, is also clear. For this reason, leg lift or leg aesthetics should be treated with a multidisciplinary approach, just like arm lift or sagging treatment. 2-3 exercises per week, healthy nutrition, nutritional supplements that regulate blood circulation if necessary for those who have to stand professionally, passive muscle stimulant treatments such as microplus that increase muscle tone and muscle volume and strengthen the leg skin can be applied in combination. In addition, in the treatment of sagging leg skin, morpheus 8 body treatment can be recommended for skin stretching and scalpel-free applications.

Stretch Marks (Striae)

What are Skin Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks are formed when collagen fibers cannot withstand excessive stretching and break, and the skin moves away from each other like fault lines and appears as pearlescent, wrinkled bands. Stretch marks are an aesthetic problem that often occurs during puberty or pregnancy periods, due to the inability of the skin to stretch fast enough.

Why Do Stretch Marks Occur?

Stretch marks often occur during puberty, that is, in cases of rapid growth and weight gain, or during pregnancy, when the skin cannot stretch and stretch enough. It can almost be thought of as skin tears. The first appearance in the areas with stretch marks is in the form of red-purplish bands; over time, the color fades and the skin becomes thinner and takes on a slightly shiny wrinkled appearance.

Is it possible to prevent skin stretch marks?

Stretch marks are most common during ‘puberty’, a period of rapid growth, and during pregnancy. During puberty, more skin moisturizers can be used and the skin can be prevented by drinking plenty of water (2-2.5). In the same way, pregnant women can pay attention to their nutrition to the extent that they can control themselves and pay attention to the water they drink. People with a genetic predisposition may still develop stretch marks despite the precautions taken. However, this situation can be reduced thanks to the precautions taken.

Stretch Mark Treatment

As the name suggests, stretch marks are places where the skin is cracked, that is, where its integrity is disrupted. Even when we stretch the area with skin cracks between two fingers, it is seen that the skin contains weak and transparent areas. In this case, what is actually desired with the treatment is to correct the wrinkled appearance of the cracked skin. The most effective treatment known in the treatment of stretch marks is skin stretching. However, skin stretching is a surgery and each surgical operation has its own advantages and disadvantages. Moreover, some areas with stretch marks can never be treated surgically. For example, surgical excision (cutting and suturing) of localized band-shaped lesions is not preferred because it would be a new surgical scar. In this case, non-surgical options are considered. In the treatment of stretch marks, various methods are applied with devices and needles. However, in recent years, needle radiofrequency treatments applied for facial and neck rejuvenation have been tried in the treatment of stretch marks and satisfactory results have started to be obtained. In morpheus or morpheus8 body treatment, the radiofrequency method enables the skin to produce its own collagen in the area applied to the skin. In addition, thanks to this method, a taut appearance can be obtained due to the smoothness of the tissue.

Legs, back, sides of the waist and above the buttocks are not favorable areas for scalpels. In this case, non-surgical options should be considered. When considering these options, we should know the causes of stretch marks well and focus on how we can heal them. In this case, we can choose options that strengthen the tissue in the cracked area. We can combine applications that re-regulate collagen production and thicken the connective tissue of the skin. Morpheus 8 application is one of these options. With Morpheus 8 body, a controlled trauma effect can be created on the skin, allowing the skin to repair and heal itself, thus increasing the collagen production of skin cells during this healing. The frequency of application is 3-4 weeks apart. The number of sessions is determined by the physician and according to the need. It can be supported with simultaneous vitamin and amino acid injections, slow-release mesotherapy methods in hyaluronic acid such as cellbooster and paris glow.

Tummy Tuck

What is abdominal sagging?

Abdominal sagging is not only a skin problem. It is also a problem of weakness, elongation and muscle atrophy (loss of muscle volume) in the abdominal muscles. Abdominal sagging is a condition that we see especially in women who have given birth and whose treatment is often ‘surgery’. However, today there are some scalpel-free treatments that can be performed before making a decision for surgery. Most of these are applications aimed at tightening the sagging skin and gaining its former volume by exercising the muscles in that area.

Why does abdominal sagging occur?

Abdominal sagging is a problem that occurs both in the skin and in the abdominal muscles. It can be seen in women and men in cases of excessive weight gain and loss. In addition, due to the weight gained during pregnancy and the stretching and lengthening of the abdominal muscles during this period, this area may remain flexible after birth.

During the period of being overweight, our spine adapts to this change and develops a posture against the increased load on the abdomen. This situation, which causes the spine, which carries the load in the abdominal region, to further hollow the lumbar region backwards, that is, to increase the lordosis, can also cause negative effects for the back muscles. In this case, the anterior abdominal muscles try to carry the abdomen against gravity, as if carrying it in a baby sling, in order to balance it. However, over time, the anterior abdominal muscles can lengthen and become damaging to the spine. In order to break this vicious circle, a multidisciplinary approach is required. In other words, it may be appropriate to train not only the abdominal skin but also the muscles under the abdomen in the right way, and to lose weight systematically, that is, at a pace appropriate to the time.

Treatment of abdominal sagging

The degree of sagging of the abdominal skin determines the treatment to be applied. Surgical tummy tuck is the most preferred method; however, it is applied under general anesthesia. For this reason, the demand for non-surgical tummy tuck methods is increasing day by day. The amount of sagging of the abdominal skin can be determined by the physician after examination. When the person is standing, surgery may be the best treatment option in the treatment of sagging in the area below the belly button, which we call the lower abdomen, in the form of very intense lines and even folding towards the underwear line.

In tummy tuck treatment, applications that can increase collagen production, that is, the treatment of laxity, which is the cause of fine lines on the abdominal skin, are recommended. It is aimed to tighten the skin by increasing the amount of collagen in loose skin. With morpheus 8 body application, radiofrequency energy is transmitted to the abdominal skin with small needle strokes. The controlled trauma areas formed on the skin after needle radiofrequency treatment initiate the wound healing process by collecting cells in that area. During wound healing, blood circulation accelerates, more oxygen reaches the damaged area and the first defense begins. Later, the cells are able to produce new collagen and elastic fibers to form a tighter skin in the area over time.

Arm Lift

What is arm prolapse? Why does it happen?

Arm skin may become loose and sagging may be observed over time in those who gain and lose weight rapidly or in those who previously practiced sports that exercise the arm muscles and then quit sports. During menopause, it can be observed that the arms become fat and have a cellulite appearance. In this period, deep grooves around the elbow also begin. Arm muscles are important in making the arm skin look taut. For this reason, these are less common in those who make sports a way of life.

Arm lift treatment

In the treatment of arm skin wrinkles, as in other skin lifting treatments, scalpel-free applications to increase collagen production are preferred. Some of these treatments are injections consisting of a combination of amino acids and hyaluronic acid applied under the skin, while others are various device applications. Morpheus8 body application is a needle radiofrequency treatment as I mentioned in the abdominal skin lifting treatment. Physicians can determine the number of applications and the combination of treatments to be applied together during the physical examination (see tummy tuck treatment).

In arm lift treatment, in addition to skin treatments, it may be beneficial to do exercises that strengthen the biceps and triceps (inner and outer arm) muscles appropriately. In addition, as a medical practice, 2 or 3 microplus treatments (see microplus) per week, which stimulate muscle tone and the contractile collagen fibers of the skin, can be supportive. The morpheus 8 body treatment for arm skin can be performed in 3-4 sessions at 3-4 week intervals, depending on the individual’s needs.

What should be considered after Morpheus 8 (body)?

Contact with water is not recommended for the first 24 hours. For the first 3-5 days, it is necessary to avoid procedures such as scrubbing fiber and frictional clothing or sports activities. Drinking plenty of water and walking during this period will support the treatment. The results may first show themselves with a smoothness and velvety appearance on the skin starting from the 3rd week of the application. The number of sessions and accompanying treatment options vary according to the skin structure of the person. Thanks to the results obtained from non-surgical (scalpel-free) skin rejuvenation methods, the need for surgery or the first choice of scalpel treatments is gradually decreasing.

How is Morpheus 8 body applied?

With the Morpheus 8 body treatment, the entire skin is scanned in certain directions with a (titanium dioxide) head that is opened individually. Morpheus 8 body heads are of two types for the body, 24 pin and 40 pin, these heads are brought into contact with the skin and shot. The radiofrequency energy determined by the physician is rapidly transferred to the skin through the heads with very fine micro needles. The number of sessions is determined by the physician. The number of sessions is also determined in combination with other treatment options. Therefore, if the physician deems appropriate, a single session can also be applied. If only morpheus 8 body will be applied, 3-5 sessions can be applied at 3-4 week intervals. An anesthetic cream is applied before the application. The application time is between 15-45 minutes and may be longer or shorter depending on the width of the skin area to be applied.

What should be considered after Morpheus 8 (body)?

It is useful to avoid clothes that will irritate the application area, applications such as scrubs and washcloths for 2-3 days. It is recommended not to touch water for the first 24 hours and to moisturize abundantly for 2-3 days after the application.
