Here we are – the fourth in our four-part series on Nashville’s best Med Spa treatments at Elan Skin and Laser, Nashville. We have a few more things we want to cover, so let’s dive right in!
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is fractionated radio frequency microneedling—a new generation collagen and skin remodeling treatment for face and body. It’s a safe, effective, and non-surgical treatment for full body skin resurfacing, skin tightening, and fat reduction of stubborn areas.
What does Morpheus8 do?
Using targeted radio-frequency (RF) energy to remodel and rebuild collagen, Morpheus8 can be used to treat skin concerns on both the face and body, including the abdomen, legs, buttocks, arms, hands, jowls, chest, and neck. The resulting effect is plumper, firmer, tighter, and smoother skin in as few as 1 to 2 sessions.
Tiny needles penetrate the skin with targeted depth and heat up the tissue using RF with targeted energy to stimulate collagen or mold fat under the skin to obtain results for tightening and lifting the skin or contouring the sub-mental or other body areas.
In addition to skin tightening, the Morpheus8 is FDA approved as a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD) and is the first and only device to diminish fat in delicate areas. It is great for melting away extra fat underneath the chin and can even target larger areas such as cellulite on the thighs and buttock. Postpartum abdominal laxity is another area that the Morpheous8 can improve–similar to a “mommy make-over” without the surgical downtime!
How does it work?
Before your treatment, topical numbing will be applied to cleansed skin. This is to minimize discomfort during the treatment process. During the procedure, a handheld device is pressed into the specified area of the skin, allowing microneedles to perforate the skin.
Once the microneedles are in place, they generate radiofrequency (RF) waves to penetrate deep into the dermal layer. Since the needles are tiny, most patients tolerate the procedure well. This simple, safe treatment delivers excellent results for all skin types. You can expect mild redness and swelling immediately post procedure, which tends to subside within 2-3 days.
Results are generally seen a month after treatment, with continued improvement over time and with subsequent Morpheus8 treatments.
Laser For Face & Body
What is Laser for Skin Care?
Lasers have varying usages in skin care. Lasers can be used to target dirt, oil, pore size, scarring, pigmentation issues and as an instrument for smoothing skin. Lasers are also commonly used for hair removal due to the precision targeting and gentleness in comparison to waxing for hair removal. Lasers also vary in intensity and can be used to aggressively target areas of concern or approach with a lighter touch. For these reasons, lasers are a common tool utilized to improve a number of common skin care issues. Elan Skin provides a number of laser services, ranging in desired outcomes and intensity. Contact us today to find out the best service for your needs.
IPL (intense pulse light)
IPL primarily targets pigment and redness, although you will get a little collagen boost with this treatment. Downtime varies from little to none to 48 hrs.
MiXto Fractional Resurfacing with CO2 Laser
This laser utilizes fractional resurfacing to aggressively treat more developed wrinkles as well as smokers lines and other advanced skin issues. MiXto is also exceptional in reducing acne, scars, excess pigment, and surface imperfections. This procedure safely and effectively eliminates visible signs of aging and dramatically improves skin’s overall tone and texture. Downtime: 7-10 days. We also offer a MiXto Buff and Shine Treatment, which incorporates just one pass of the laser to instantly brighten and shine the complexion,
Laser Hair Removal
This simple and non-invasive procedure targets highly concentrated light to a specific depth, permanently destroying hair follicles to remove unwanted hair. The procedure is effective on hair with pigment and therefore, may not be suitable for blonde, gray or true red hair. Most clients see sustained hair reduction after 6 to 8 treatments. This extremely popular procedure is a safe, effective and speedy way for removing unwanted hair down to the follicle. Skin in the area treated may be red for 24hrs, but is easily treated with aloe vera. Sun exposure in areas treated should be avoided for one week prior and post treatment.

How does it work?
Lasers in skin care are used for a variety of skin-related issues and range in intensity. Due to the range of laser services available for scarring, pigmentation and the removal of hair, there is no one size fits all in explaining how this treatment works. However, in essence, lasers use light and heat energy to target problem areas to cause controlled damage, resulting in new skin growth. This process stimulates collagen production, the protein your body uses to grow new, healthy skin. In the case of hair removal, lasers utilize heat energy to deaden the hair follicle, delaying future hair growth and leaving only fine hairs behind. Whatever the need, lasers are an effective tool for precisely targeted areas of concern and, for that reason, are a highly popular method for skin care improvements.
What is Coolsculpting?
The Coolsculpting procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. Coolsculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle. Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. Coolsculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
How does it work?
First, your technician will measure and photograph the area that you’ve selected. Applicator is then attached to both the treatment area and the cooling device. After the unwanted fat is frozen and crystalized, it will appear like a three-dimensional rectangle under the skin. Your technician will remove the applicator and massage the treatment area to break up the crystals or employ radio waves for a more thorough result. Through either process, the broken-up fat cells become absorbed by the body and eliminated as waste products.
One of the greatest advantages to Coolsculpting is that it is a non-surgical procedure that typically only involves 35 minutes for a single area.
