Morpheus8 for Under Eye BagsAuthored by: Dr. Bruce Katz, M.D.
You want to look vibrant and awake, but the puffiness below your eyes is getting in the way. Your best attempts to soothe and conceal the swelling haven’t given you the results you want. If you wish to de-puff your under eye area, nothing beats a professional treatment.
One great way to correct bags – and even dark circles – is microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy. You’ve probably already heard of this popular service. Here at JUVA Skin & Laser Center, we use a next-generation microneedling device called Morpheus8.
How Does Morpheus8 Work?
Moprheus8 takes the concept of microneedling and pairs it with beneficial radiofrequency energy. The result is smoother and tighter skin.
First, tiny needles smoothly pass in and out of the skin, creating micro-injuries. The depth of the needles is controlled with precision. That means it’s safe to perform this treatment on many areas of the face including the delicate eye area.
The nearly-imperceptible punctures can promote a significant change in your complexion. These marks encourage the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that are essential for tight skin.
At the same time, the device sends radiofrequency energy to the treatment area, creating safe and gentle heat. This warmth speeds up the formation of new collagen and elastin. It’s like getting two highly-effective skin tightening treatments in one session!
In addition to improving under eye bags, Morpheus8 can address:
- Acne scarring
- Large pores
- Sun damage
- Pigmentation problems
- Irregular skin texture
Banish Under Eye Bags with Morhpeus8
Stubborn under eye bags are often caused by aging or genetics. Over time, you lose collagen and elastin and the structure around your eyes becomes weak. This leads to sagging and droopiness. In terms of genetics, you may have a predisposition for puffiness in this area.
Thankfully, you can banish bags with Morpheus8. Unlike before, surgery could only remove under-eye fat pads. At JUVA, we are excited to announce the use of Morpheus8 purpose instead of surgery.
The treatment can tighten the skin under your eyes, helping to lift it and reduce bags. It can also make the skin in this area a bit thicker, reducing both bags and dark circles.
Our dermatologists will apply a topical anesthetic before your session to minimize any discomfort. The sessions are short and don’t require any downtime. Afterward, our trained staff will give you a few simple care instructions to follow that you can easily incorporate into your daily routine.
Some people see excellent results from one session. However, several sessions may offer the best benefits. Our dermatologists will develop a customized plan for achieving your goals, depending on the severity of your under eye bags.
