Skin elasticity is, sadly, something we lose as we age, which means we also lose a natural defence against the likes of wrinkles, lines and jowls in the lower part of our faces.
One solution comes in the form of a relatively new piece of anti-ageing technology called Morpheus8, a device that helps to remodel and tighten the collagen and superficial fat layer beneath the skin.
It uses both needles and radiofrequency energy to improve skin quality, thickness and slightly tighten excess skin, which, in turn, improves the contour of the face and body.
The microneedles penetrate deep into the skin and fat, creating minuscule injuries which stimulate a natural healing response morphing the ageing face or body into a more desired smooth and sleek appearance, for all skin tones.
Morpheus8 has been clinically-proven to deliver fractional radiofrequency energy deep in to the dermis, which further enhances skin tightening and scar reduction. The results are progressive and continue to improve over several months after treatment, as new collagen and elastin is created.
This is the most-requested of our device-based treatments and one that Dr Joshua administers many times each week. To make the treatment as comfortable as possible, we can apply high-strength numbing cream and give anaesthetic injections.
What does a Morpheus8 skin treatment do?
It can safely help tighten skin all over the body, not just on the face, stimulating collagen renewal and thereby reducing wrinkles, defining facial contours, reducing the appearance of scarring and uneven skin tone. It has been FDA approved as an effective treatment for all of these. It is also designed to reduce the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which can be a side-effect of some resurfacing treatments.
Do I need more than one treatment?
Best results are achieved after two or three sessions administered four to six weeks apart. Morpheus8 skin treatment can also be combined with other procedures, such as PRP vampire facelifts, dermal fillers and toxin treatments. A healthy lifestyle and sensible protection from the sun’s rays are known to contribute to the best outcomes in the long-term.
