What does Morpheus8 treatment do?

Morpheus8 is a skin-resurfacing procedure that remodels the deep layers of your skin using microneedling and radiofrequency therapy. The treatment is commonly used to treat wrinkles and scarring, but it can also be used on other parts of the body such as arms and legs.

Resurfacing The Skin

Morpheus8 is a skin-resurfacing procedure that remodels the deep layers of the skin. It’s delivered through microneedling and radiofrequency therapy, which is commonly used to treat wrinkles and scarring.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is also used in this treatment, as it contains growth factors that help heal damaged tissue.

Firmer and Smoother

The Morpheus8 treatment uses a small needle to create tiny punctures in your skin. These wounds will naturally heal themselves by growing new collagen and elastin fibers that help to make your skin look firmer and smoother. The heat of the radiofrequency also works to stimulate cell regeneration.

Many Layers of Skin at Once

Because Morpheus8 targets many layers of your skin at once, it can effectively treat more severe wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars and other types of skin imperfections than typical microneedling or chemical peeling treatments. It also yields better results than laser resurfacing treatments because it’s less invasive and doesn’t damage your outermost skin layers.

When you have Morpheus8 done by a qualified medical professional (such as those listed on the [link to website] page), the treatment creates microscopic channels in the skin that stimulate new collagen production in the dermis—the layer just below your surface epidermis—to fill in lines and creases from aging or sun damage. The treatment also stimulates production of elastin fibers to firm up sagging tissue.

Painless Procedure

RF energy is used to stimulate cell regeneration, a process that’s not painful. The built-in cooling mechanism minimizes pain during the treatment and improves the healing process after it’s done.

Morpheus8 uses RF energy to target many layers of your skin at once. It also provides long-term results; after just one session, you’ll see an improvement in your skin’s appearance that lasts up to six months!

The procedure itself doesn’t hurt—you may experience some slight discomfort while it’s happening, but nothing too bad. If you’re interested in having Morpheus8 done on yourself or someone close to you, visit our website for more information about this amazing new treatment!

Morpheus8 is commonly used on the face, but can also be used on scarring and uneven texture on other parts of the body such as arms and legs.


Overall, Morpheus8 is a great procedure for anyone who wants smoother skin and clearer pores. It’s a safe and effective way to get rid of wrinkles, acne scars and other types of imperfections. The best part about this treatment is that you don’t have to worry about any side effects because it’s not invasive or painful like traditional laser resurfacing treatments. Plus, the results are permanent! If you want more information on how Morpheus8 can help improve your appearance then visit our website today

What is the downtime for Laser Hair Removal?

If you’re thinking about getting laser hair removal, you might be wondering what the downtime is like. The good news is that it’s pretty easy and can be done in just one visit!

The treatment lasts for about 20 minutes to 45 minutes.

The duration of a laser hair removal session varies depending on the size of the area. The larger or more intricate areas, such as your back, will take longer to treat than smaller ones like your arms. Your technician will also ask you to lie down so that they can cover all areas evenly and thoroughly.

The first treatment takes longer than subsequent treatments because it is an initial consultation with your technician and they need time to assess which laser settings would be suitable for you. They also want ensure that they are treating each area correctly so that no harm comes to your skin if there are any side effects from the procedure (which is rare).

Lastly, we advise continuing with at least four sessions before seeing noticeable results; however, this does vary between individuals based on their hair growth rate and skin type!

Self tanning products, tanning beds and sun exposure should all be avoided before the treatment

Because laser hair removal is a treatment that uses light to target and destroy hair follicles, avoiding direct sunlight for at least one week before your session is recommended. The reason for this is because the melanin in your skin can cause complications during laser treatment if it is exposed to intense heat from the laser.

It’s important not to use self-tanning products on your skin prior to your appointment because these products can create buildup of melanin on cells, which could increase risk of burns or scarring during treatment. If you have been using self tanner in the past year or plan on using one before your next session, let us know so we can make sure we don’t perform a procedure that could result in scarring!

You will need to avoid sun exposure after the treatment

You will need to avoid sun exposure after the treatment.

Sun exposure can cause the skin to burn and may lead to irritation, redness and blistering of your skin. You will need to avoid tanning beds, and sun exposure for a week after your treatment. Heat can also cause irritation and burns after the treatment. Vigorous exercise, hot water, steam etc should all be avoided for at least 48 hours after the treatment

The treatment lasts for about 20 minutes to 45 minutes.

The duration of the treatment varies depending on the size of the area being treated. Smaller areas generally take less time to treat than larger ones, but this can also depend on how many sessions you have scheduled. For example, during a first session, the operator may wish to spend more time ensuring that your skin does not react negatively to the laser. Subsequent sessions will likely be shorter since there won’t be any new growth for them to target and therefore no need for new treatments or fine-tuning.

There could be occasional redness and swelling.

You can expect some redness and swelling after your treatment. You should take ibuprofen or acetaminophen (Tylenol) to reduce any inflammation that occurs. Sun exposure is also a no-no for at least two weeks after your treatment, because it can cause more damage to the skin.

You will be able to resume your regular routine within 48 hours of the procedure and should see an improvement in hair growth in about 3-4 treatments.

Any medication that you are taking for acne needs to be stopped few days before the procedure.

You can resume taking medications for acne after the procedure. However, you must stop taking any medication that you are currently using for acne for at least 7 days before your treatment. This includes topical creams, oral medications and topical gels. It is important to speak with your doctor about this because some medications may increase the risk of complications during laser hair removal. If you are taking Accutane (isotretinoin), it should be stopped at least 1 year before undergoing laser hair removal treatment because it increases the risk of scarring or inflammation if applied to recently treated skin.

You will have to shave the area that is going to be targeted before the procedure.

Shave the area that is going to be targeted with a razor in the direction of hair growth. You should shave your skin within 24 hours of your procedure and never before your treatment.

You should avoid waxing or plucking a few weeks before the treatment.

You should avoid waxing or plucking a few weeks before the treatment. If you go to get your brows done and the technician notices that your skin is very red, she may recommend that you do not get laser hair removal until a certain period of time has passed. This is because it’s not safe to have any new growth on top of old, thickened hair and skin.

There are different kinds of lasers for laser hair removal; some are more effective than others depending on what kind of pigment your hair has. Your doctor will choose which type will work best for you based on whether or not it would be able to remove all the hairs without damaging surrounding tissue in an area where they don’t want any damage at all (like around eyebrows).

Results are not immediate.

The results of laser hair removal are not immediate. After each session, you can expect to see small decreases in the amount of hair at your chosen treatment area. However, it may take several sessions over the course of several weeks or months for you to see noticeable progress.

Treatments should be spaced out about 4-8 weeks apart so that your skin has time to heal in between treatments. This is especially important if you have darker skin tones because they tend to be more susceptible to pigment changes (darkening) or scarring than people with lighter complexions are; therefore it’s better not to apply heat sources too frequently on these areas as this could cause damage and discoloration over time.

Laser hair removal is an easy and safe procedure with little downtime.

  • Laser hair removal is a safe and effective procedure with little downtime.
  • You’ll need to shave the area before your appointment, but it’s not necessary to remove all of the hair. The laser will only target dark hairs, so if you don’t want to shave an entire area, just trim down any light colored or blonde hairs so they’re short enough for the laser to reach them.
  • It’s also important that you stay out of direct sunlight for two weeks after your treatment (you should wear sunscreen). This step is especially important when receiving treatments on both legs at once because exposure to sunlight could cause sunburns on multiple areas simultaneously—and no one wants that!


We hope this article has given you a better understanding of the downtime for laser hair removal and how to prepare for it. If you have any further questions, please contact us and we will be happy to help!

Orbera and Insulin

You know what’s hard? Losing weight.

You know what’s even harder? Keeping it off.

If you’ve tried diet and exercise, but haven’t been able to stick to it long-term, Orbera® Intragastric Balloon may be the solution for you.

The most effective, long-lasting weight loss is being proven to be done by lowering insulin levels.

This is because insulin has been shown to cause many health problems, such as obesity and type 2 diabetes.

It also keeps your body from burning fat for energy, so it causes you to store excess calories in your body as fat.

When you have low insulin levels, your body can burn fat more easily. This means faster weight loss and a lower chance of gaining back any weight that you do lose. Low-carb diets are the best ways to lower your insulin levels. The reason for this is because carbohydrates cause your body to release insulin, which then stores fat in your cells. This is why people who eat a lot of carbohydrates tend to have more fat on their bodies than those who don’t eat many carbs at all.

While carbs are one thing that makes insulin get released into the blood stream and causes the weight gain, we need to consider all of the ways that we can lower insulin, which will in-turn make us lose weight.

For the most part, anytime we eat we are causing insulin to be produced. So naturally, if we don’t eat then insulin levels will decrease, and we will lose weight. But wait, that is not all, low insulin levels cause the body to produce at least one hormone that causes the body to mobilize our already stored fat and then we actually lose weight.

When you’re fasting, your body is going to start breaking down your fat stores for energy. The hormone glucagon is what tells the body to do this. Glucagon is released when blood sugar levels are low and it works with insulin and other hormones to turn stored food into energy.

Fasting has long thought to be dangerous and something that causes the body to begin to consume its proteins or muscle and use this for energy. This is just not the case. The body is much smarter that this and actually will utilize the stored fat for energy during periods of time that it’s not receiving energy from the food we eat.

So, we see that whatever we can do to alter the amount of insulin that the body produces the more we will prevent the storage of fat (getting fatter) and the more we will burn the fat that we already have stored (getting skinnier).

At least one other way that we have learned that we can keep insulin levels lower in the body is to use supplements that have been found to naturally lower insulin levels. Some vitamins and supplements that are known to lower insulin levels are: chromium picolinate, vitamin C, magnesium, even apple cider vinegar can lower insulin levels.

Doctors and researchers alike have found that if the food that we eat leaves the stomach more slowly, then the insulin response created by that food is less. Subsequently, this lower insulin levels cause the body to not store as much fat from the food that we inevitably must eat. We cannot fast all of the time.

At Gentle Revive in Lindon Utah, we believe strongly in the detrimental effect of insulin on weight-loss and how lower insulin levels in the bloodstream is the key to losing weight.

At the first of the article, I mentioned another way to keep insulin levels low. That is with the use of a balloon that is inserted into the stomach. The balloon sits in your stomach, filling up space and helping you eat less. Combined with a special eating plan, Orbera® helps lower insulin levels and cause weight loss—people that have Orbera® lose 3.1 times more weight than diet and exercise alone! One of the ways that it does this is by forcing the food we eat to leave the stomach more slowly, thus decreasing the bodies insulin response to that food.

It is because of lower insulin levels that at Gentle Revive we offer the Orbera® weight loss balloon to assist people in their log sought after ability to lose weight and keep it off. In addition to just placing the weight loss balloon Orbera®, from Gentle Revive you will also receive support from our staff throughout the entire process which actually is a total of 12 months of support. You’ll be able to eat all of your favorite foods while losing weight! And did we mention that Orbera® is FDA-approved and proven safe and effective? The balloon is inserted into your stomach by a board-certified, experienced physician in an outpatient procedure without incisions that takes about 20 minutes. It stays there for 6 months and then it can be removed at any time.

If this method of weight-loss is something that interests you, please call or text us and schedule an in-person or virtual consultation with one of our providers to see if this method of achieving your log sought after goals of getting to the weight that you desire is appropriate and safe for you.
