While Kim Kardashian had the Morpheus8 applied to her stomach, we’ve seen many more users apply the laser to the face. Dr. Glenn Vallecillos explains that the laser can be used anywhere there’s skin. “It is commonly used on the face for tightening and skin resurfacing and certainly the same applies to the body,” Vallecillos says. “The Morpheus8 body can penetrate deeper, that’s targeting fat as well as the connections between the skin and underlying muscle which, when weakened with time and aging, can lead to skin crepitation or loose skin and cellulite.”
In fact, Dr. Vallecillos says that one of the best things about this laser is that it can be customizable for different individual patients. “Each face is its own unique mosaic and requires specific treatment in different areas for optimal results,” he says. But be careful, because outcomes depend on the skill of the clinician performing the procedure. “Always seek out someone with a lot of experience who presents you with a well thought out aesthetic game plan,” he says.
Speaking of a game plan, be prepared with patience. “You shouldn’t expect to see results in under six weeks and in our hands best results are seen at the four-month mark up until well after a year,” Dr. Vallecillos explains. “So this is an evolving type of treatment that takes time and patience, but there really is no alternative in terms of its non-invasive efficacy.”
