Acne can be caused by a number of factors, including excessive oil production, hormones, diet, and stress. People who experience acne normally have severe pimples or inflamed lumps on their face, neck, back, shoulders, upper torso, and arms. Acne may result in scarring if not treated properly. These skin imperfections can affect your self-confidence and appearance. This is why Dr. Waage is proud to offer acne and scar treatment with the Morpheus8™.

Individuals of all ages can experience mild to hard-to-manage acne or may have scarring from various life events. Leavenworth, KS men and women who suffer from active acne tend to have painful papules, whiteheads, or blocked oil ducts that crop up on different sections of the body. Laser technology is a great selection for patients who have tried different routes, including supplements, ointments, or body wash, to clear up hyperpigmentation from scarring or acne. It may also help people achieve supple skin by preventing bacteria. Our team provides the newest laser treatments that usually work effectively on most skin tones with proven outcomes. During your consultation, our skin care professionals will carefully examine your skin to determine if you are a possible fit for this treatment.

The Morpheus8 platform is the first and only FDA cleared technology that utilizes fractional radiofrequency (RF) indicated for facial, neck, chest and other acne-affected areas, as well as surgical scars, stretch marks, cellulites and hyperdidrosis. Four fractional tips deploying bipolar RF energy give us the ability to multi-level treatment depths from skin resurfacing to penetrating the subdermal tissue at variable depths up to 8mm. Morpheus8 provides complete facial and full body dermal (skin) resurfacing and subdermal adipose (fat) remodeling. It is a triple action of fat coagulation, connective tissue contraction, and skin tightening.

The Morpheus8 treatment tightens the skin, remodels and improves the appearance of acne scars, superficial pigments, wrinkles and lax skin, as well as stimulates and remodels collagen and subdermal adipose tissue. It is one of our most popular procedures!

Morpehus8 treatments require analgesia with topical numbing cream, Nitrous-Oxide or sedation according to Dr. Waage’s judgement and discretion.

The care, precision, and professionalism with which Dr. Waage and her staff took to help me to achieve my goals was nothing short of exemplary! Prior to my procedure, I had been to many consultations with different med spas and Lazerdoc was the only practice that truly listened to my needs/concerns while keeping the process simple. It's been nearly 2 months post-op (BodyTite/Morpheus8/EvolveX) and I'm still in love with my results! I feel so grateful to have found them and wouldn't want to go anywhere else!

Before your laser treatment, you will need to follow instructions that our office will provide you with.

Afterwards, patients might notice additional redness, bruising, and mild skin tenderness. Based on the region treated, we recommend not utilizing skincare products for a day. Additionally, you will want to avoid any long-term UV exposure. Individuals will often notice a difference after one to two days. Dr. Waage can determine how many appointments you need depending on the seriousness of your blemishes. Generally, men and women need three to six visits to see unblemished skin.

After laser acne and scar treatment appointments, most people feel happy. A laser procedure can do what medications often can’t do; however, laser procedures can help clear up your blackheads and leave your skin supple, healthy, and revived.

About Us
Does it hurt?

No, many individuals just report minor sensations from the treatment. A number say it is something like a "snapping" sensation at first but eventually disappears as the skin adjusts to the feeling. Our staff can administer a topical anesthetic to help make your procedure as smooth and stress-free as we can.

Does it make my acne go away permanently?

Unfortunately, though acne may be treated and temporarily relieved, there is no "permanent" solution for acne. Nearly every person will experience some level of acne during their life. For some individuals, this condition can be a major problem, but for others, it is rarely if ever a concern. This is why Dr. Leah provides a multifaceted approach to treating acne that can be personalized to your unique goals.

Do certain foods make acne worse?

In general, no, consuming specific foods does not lead to acne. Much research has gone into the link between particular foods and acne. However, the leading source of acne is biological changes that can induce the sebaceous glands within the skin to overproduce sebum, which can plug pores, resulting in acne outbreaks. While unsubstantiated, there are particular foods that are said to make acne worse, like heavily fried foods, dairy items, food that contains saturated fats, foods with a lot of processed sugar, and milk chocolate. The connecting object between acne and these items is that they may influence hormone numbers, which could trigger acne.

Is Morpheus8 suitable for all skin types?

One of the advantages of Morpheus8 RF microneedling is its suitability for a wide range of skin types, including darker skin tones, which are sometimes at risk for hyperpigmentation with other types of skin treatments.

How soon can I expect to see results for acne scars?

Initial improvements are often noticeable within a few weeks after the first treatment session. However, the most significant changes usually occur a few months after completing the full treatment course, as collagen production increases.

Is Morpheus8 safe for sensitive skin?

Generally, yes. However, if you have very sensitive skin or are prone to allergic reactions, it’s crucial to discuss this with Dr. Waage to determine if Morpheus8 is the right choice for you.
