Skin Resurfacing or Skin Tightening:
Which one is right for you?
Many treatments for skin resurfacing and skin tightening, such as fractional laser treatments
and facelifts, offer great results but are painful and need time to heal before seeing the
difference. Suppose you're looking for a treatment that leaves you radiant and offers beautiful
skin without any downtime. In that case, Morpheus 8 and Evoke are unique options to consider
because they are safe, effective, and will make your skin vibrant!
The Difference Between Skin Tightening and Skin Resurfacing
To make the right decision for your skin, it's essential to understand the difference between skin
resurfacing versus skin tightening. This is because both treatments achieve tighter skin but have
different application processes and methods
Skin tightening is used to target fat to tighten the skin around the neck and jawline, while
resurfacing is more suited for eliminating fine lines, wrinkles and creating an even skin tone.
Traditionally, skin resurfacing used lasers and light based technologies to generate selective
tissue targeted heat with subsequent production of new collagen.
In skin tightening procedures people have traditionally looked to plastic surgery to lift the skin
in the lower part of the face to eliminate jowls and tighten skin along the jawline and neck.
Morpheus8 is a safe and effective fractional bipolar radiofrequency solution that is an
alternative to traditional lasers. It uses micro-needling technology that tightens the skin around
the face to treat mild to moderate acne scars, smooth fine lines, and reduce wrinkles.
This treatment involves one of our expert providers using Morpheus8.The device applies heated
radio frequencies to remove old layers of the skin, which helps your body produce new skin and
high-quality collagen, making the skin look fresher and tighter. Morpheus8 is a non-invasive
