Bella Thorne, 25, shows off her ‘fresh face’ after undergoing microneedling treatment

Susan Vaughan from SV aesthetics explains how the treatment works: 

‘The Morpheus8 treatment is a combination of micro needling and radio frequency. Two very well-known treatments individually – which are great for tightening the skin. 

‘Now put the two treatments together and you have a gold standard treatment with results to match.

‘Morpheus8 uses disposable 24 pin tips to treat the face and neck. The 24 micro needles are silicon coated, excluding the very tip of the needle. When the needles enter the skin, a powerful radio frequency current penetrates through the very tip of the needle and travels beneath the skin, through all the layers of the skin. 

‘These currents interrupt the skin structure below and helps to rebuild and restructure the skin. As well as this you get the added bonus of the micro needling. 

‘As these very fine needles enter the skin, we create a controlled trauma on the skin surface and throughout the layers below.

‘Your body will be encouraged to produce new collagen and elastin to heal these very tiny micro injuries.

‘A numbing cream is applied to the area being treated to ensure the client is as comfortable as possible. 

‘Morpheus8 can be a little bit uncomfortable for some clients, but a full face and neck treatment takes 20-25 minutes. 

‘The skin can be quite red for a few hours post treatment, and usually totally clear of redness by the following day. We do recommend no heavy makeup, exercise or swimming for 3 days after your Morpheus8 treatment.

‘On average three sessions of Morpheus8 are recommended, which are spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Maintenance is then only required twice a year following. After your first treatment you will begin to see the results after 4-6 weeks.

Morpheus8 doesn’t only help with skin tightening, it improves the appearance of lax jowls, helps with the appearance of fine or crepey skin, improvement of skin texture, improvement of fine lines and wrinkles and can target a small but of fat under the chin (if required).

Morpheus8 can be used on any area of the face or body where the skin has become lax. We use a 12 pin tip for the eye treatment so we can get nice and close to the under eyes and under the brow bone. A 40 pin tip for is used for the body, to ensure the treatment is quick and as painless as possible.

The most common areas treated are – Face and neck, eyes, Arms, Stomach, above the knees.

Morpheus8 and  HA Skin Boosters are an amazing combination treatment – the Morpheus will help to tighten the skin and the Skin Booster will help to rehydrate the skin, as well as helping smooth any fine lines and wrinkles. 

HA Skin Boosters contain a high concentration of hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in the skin. In short – we are not putting anything foreign into the body as your skin naturally produces HA. Hyaluronic acid holds a 1000 times its weight in water so it is like a big drink of water for the skin. Two sessions are recommended 3-4 weeks apart for best results.
