Morpheus8 for anti-ageing and improving skin quality
Published on: August 21, 2020
Getting older can have its advantages. Becoming wiser, knowing which cut of jean works best for our figure and finding that killer shade of lipstick are all positives when it comes to ageing gracefully. But let’s face it, no one ever said that they actually enjoy the appearance of facial ageing. As we start to experience the signs that time might be ticking by, the skin begins to sag and loosen, causing the appearance of jowls in the lower face and chin and this can really start to affect our confidence and sense of wellbeing when we look in the mirror.
At The London Cosmetic Clinic in Harley Street, led by Dr Salinda Johnson, we are experts in treating mild and advanced signs of ageing with a variety of state-of-the-art, innovative non-surgical procedures and technologies. Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening is highly effective in providing significant results in a short period, with virtually no downtime! A brand new, revolutionary device which harnesses the efficacy of RF and microneedling is helping our patients win the battle against skin ageing. This treatment is called Morpheus8.
Anti-ageing and skin quality improvement in one treatment
Morpheus 8 is an in-clinic procedure which combines RF technology with fractional micro pins. When passed over the areas of the skin requiring treatment, the pins create tiny injuries and trauma and RF heat energy is transported to the deeper layers of the dermis. This is where the magic happens! The production of vital youth-giving substances such as collagen and elastin is stimulated with this treatment and this in-turn encourages a natural healing response, where new and healthy collagen and elastin are produced. This action tightens and tones the skin over time and improves its resilience. Lines and wrinkles fade and scars and pigmentation are reduced.
As Morpheus8 is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, it is suitable for most patients seeking effective skin tightening and anti-ageing. However, it’s important to attend a pre-treatment consultation before any procedure here at the clinic. In this initial meeting, Dr Johnson will discuss what is troubling you about your facial appearance, assess your skin and general health and advise on expected results. She can then decide if the procedure will be both suitable, safe and effective for your skin concerns.
What happens during a Morpheus8 treatment?
Prior to the treatment, a topical anaesthetic will be applied, so that you are fully-comfortable during the procedure. After around 30 to 45 minutes, the treatment can begin. The Morpheus8 hand-held device head is passed over the areas of concern and at this point you may feel a slight tingling and warming of the skin, but this is tolerable. A full treatment (not including the numbing period) takes around 30 minutes.
As Morpheus8 is a non-surgical procedure where the skin is not broken, there is minimal downtime. You may experience pink and shiny skin after the treatment for around 5 days, and this is completely normal. As heat energy has been applied to the skin, you may find that your face feels tight and your skin may peel slightly after a couple of days which is a natural response to this procedure.
After your Morpheus8 treatment, you will be advised to avoid strong sunlight for a few days and wear a high factor SPF sun cream as well as a good quality moisturiser. Dr Johnson can advise on the best skincare to use following your treatment. After the first day following your procedure, a good mineral makeup is advised to assist with the healing process.
Some good results can be seen after just one treatment with Morpheus8, but for the best possible outcome long-term, we would advise a course of treatment. The number of sessions recommended will be discussed in your pre-treatment consultation with Dr Johnson here at The London Cosmetic Clinic.
Facial ageing doesn’t have to take centre stage when it comes to getting older. We can enjoy the ageing process and all its beauty, without compromising on our looks.
