Morpheus8 – New non-surgical facelift in Essex

6th May 2022 By Phoenix Hospital Group

For those concerned about fine lines, wrinkles, or even sun damage, Phoenix Hospital Chelmsford is now offering a non-surgical microneedling treatment called Morpheus8, which helps to target a number of skin concerns, leaving your skin with a natural glow.

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, but for those who wish to reduce the appearance of lines, smooth out acne scars, or tighten areas of loose skin, Morpheus8 provides a powerful solution.

How does it work?

As we get older, the middle layer of the skin (the dermis), which is made up of collagen and elastin fibres, begins to thin. Exposure to UV radiation also contributes to collagen damage. As our collagen  production decreases, this causes the skin to wrinkle and sag.

Morpheus8 is a microneedling treatment that penetrates into the skin and uses radiofrequency technology to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, helping to reverse signs of aging. This radiofrequency energy also helps to tighten the skin, resulting in a smoother, more youthful complexion. Unlike other microneedling techniques, Morpheus8 is able to penetrate much deeper into the skin and produces superior results in much less time.

What areas can Morpheus8 target?

  • Fine, moderate, and deep wrinkles
  • Skin tone and texture
  • Scars, including acne scarring
  • Loose skin around the chin, jawline, and neck
  • Smile lines
  • Eye bags
  • Submental fat (double chins)

Who is it for?

Morpheus8 is perfect for anyone wanting to reduce signs of aging on the skin, including those with wrinkles, sun damage, or loose skin. It is also a great option for those who struggle with acne and acne scarring. It is suitable for all skin tones and can be used to treat any area of the body.

What does the treatment involve?

The treatment takes less than an hour and is pain-free, thanks to a local anaesthetic that will be applied to the skin beforehand. Two layers of numbing cream will also be applied to the skin to ensure that the patient is not in any pain or discomfort during the treatment.

Up to a week after the treatment you may feel a sensation of heat on the treated area as well as local skin redness and swelling however, this is common after having treatment. It is normal to see tiny pinpoint scabs appear on the face where treated however, after 24 hours the scabs can be masked with make-up.

You should expect to see results within a few days, but the skin will continually improve over the following weeks and months.

We offer same day virtual appointments to talk you through the procedure and explain in depth what the Morpheus8 treatment entails, during your appointment we can discuss whether the treatment is right for you and what benefits having the non-surgical treatment will have. Morpheus8 is GMC registered at Phoenix Hospital Chelmsford.
