Kim Kardashian is well-known for her stunning looks. Kim recently underwent a Morpheus Laser procedure to ‘tighten’ her stomach. Now, her doctor has answered all the details on the procedure.
The Kardashians star, who has openly claimed to be concerned about her appearance, recently underwent a skin-tightening procedure known as the Morpheus8 Microneedling Fractional Treatment. “This is a game changer,” the Skims founder said on Instagram Stories on August 3rd, alongside a photo of herself lying flat on her back, her abdomen slightly red.
“I think this is my fave laser but it’s painful LOL but worth it!”
The outcomes of Kim’s latest beauty procedure piqued the interest of her admirers, much like the vampire facial that she popularized. Fortunately, Dr. Ashkan Ghavami addressed all of E! News pressing concerns regarding the Morpheus8 Microneedling Fractional Treatment.
He is a Beverly Hills-based board-certified cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon. He placed everything on the table and thoroughly explained Kim’s procedure. For those who are unfamiliar, he was asked to describe exactly what it is.
“This is a radio frequency treatment. It’s heat delivered under the skin at a certain depth based on the needles and the customized treatment. Everyone’s different in what depth they do. I might do a shallower depth on the forehead and under the eyes but I might do a deeper one on the cheeks or the neck.”
When questioned about the different Morpheus options, he stated, “We have a Morpheus Body, which is for the body, and then one that’s for the face.” He went into further depth by noting, “The body one goes a little deeper. I can use the Morpheus Body for above the knees, inner thighs, arms, and around the belly button and abdomen—for those people that, if they have the right posture, they’re not quite there to need a tummy tuck or an arm lift. I can do lower and upper eyelines with the face one.”
People were concerned since Kim described it as a “painful” procedure, and they wondered what someone with a lower pain tolerance should keep in mind if they were considering this treatment. He also explained how long the treatment takes. He also discussed the side effects that patients frequently associated with this treatment. Furthermore, he went on to explain some results of having this surgery done.
“It should hurt a little bit but not too much. There’s a sweet spot. So, we don’t necessarily want someone to be fully numb. We’ll calibrate and dial up or down how much energy we’re delivering and how deep we’re going based on your feedback.”
“Anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on how many areas you do. If you’re going to do arms and décolletage and other parts of the body, it can go up to 45 minutes. But once you’re numb, you’re numb for an hour or more.”
“As for the people getting the treatments, they are slightly red or blush for about one to two days. It’s not one of those things where the skin sloughs. However, some people will get a little scab where the microneedles were. It will exude old, dead skin and that’s part of the way it works. If you don’t get immediate tightening, you at least get fresh skin. There’s an early phase where you feel a slightly swollen effect. A lot of people do this before a red carpet. There’s also a long term effect where two to three months later, little by little, the collagen is repaired and it’s tighter.”
One thing is certain: Kim is not new to this. Let’s see what Kim has in store for us next. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
