Danielle Lloyd’s Morpheus8 Treatment – Before & After
Why Danielle Lloyd Chose Morpheus8
Danielle Lloyd is a mother of five and is regularly in the public eye. As a busy working mum Danielle has very little time for herself. She doesn’t have time to wear makeup daily as she loves to work out or is doing the school runs. All this means is that she requires treatments that provide results but do not require excessive visits to the clinic. She just wants to maintain her confidence makeup free when she is out and about.
Danielle will be turning 40 this year and she has noticed a huge difference with the skin laxity on her face. The areas that concerned her the most were around her jowl and chin area. She had noticed that her cheekbones and jawline were not as contoured as they once were. She wanted to achieve a natural look without surgery that would boost her own collagen and elastin naturally. This in turn will allow her to maintain her youthful appearance. Who wouldn’t want to maintain their looks and slow down the ageing process?
To assist with Danielle’s skin health she also uses Obagi Medical skincare. Obagi Medical speeds up the healing process and helps minimise her pigmentation whilst maintaining the results from her Morpheus8. The healthier the skin is, the better the results will be after treatment and the longer the results will be maintained. This is because the skin is able to restore and repair itself much more effectively.
What Is Morpheus8
Morpheus8 is a medical/surgical device which remoulds the skin. Numerous concerns can be treated, such as sagging/loose skin, double chin, drooping eyes, large open pores, acne scars, stretchmarks, crepey skin, fine lines and wrinkles. It literally lifts, tightens and contours the whole face. Read more about Morpheus8 treatreatment at our Birminham clinic here.
Morpheus8 combines radio frequency and microneedling in one treatment. It lifts and tightens the skin whilst breaking down unwanted fat under the chin and jowl area. Any area of the face or body can be treated. The gold plated needles are charged with radio frequency. This means that the radio frequency is able to penetrate much deeper into the skin providing better results.
Depending on which area of the face is treated, will depend on the depth of the needles. The jowl and chin area are the most popular areas to get treated and is where deeper penetration is used. The needles & radio frequency are able to reach the SMAS layer; the SMAS layer is a collagen and elastin sheet of tissue which becomes lax with age. The heat from the radio frequency and the injury from the needles causes this collagen sheet to tighten. This is because new collagen and new elastin is formed in the area to heal and so tightens the skin. The depth and heat from the needles also coagulate excess fat in the area. This then means that there is fat reduction as well as skin tightening and lifting. During the treatment, two passes are made over the area for maximum tightening and lifting. A different depth of needle is used on each pass to ensure multiple layers of skin are treated for maximum results.
Why Have Morpheus8
From the age of 25, we lose between 1–3 % of collagen and elastin every year. The healthier we are, the slower collagen and elastin reduces, however, people with unhealthy lifestyles lose more collagen and elastin from smoking, excessive alcohol, excess of sugar etc. To stay looking young, it is important to ensure that we maintain our collagen banks by remaining healthy. These collagen banks can also be boosted by having clinical treatments, such as Morpheus8 to stimulate new collagen and elastin. Helping to replace the collagen and elastin that is naturally lost every year.
Morpheus8 creates two types of injury in the skin, there is thermal/heat injury from the radio frequency and physical injury from the needles. The body responds to this controlled injury by laying down new collagen and new elastin. This new basket weave of collagen creates the tightening and contouring of the skin.
Many clients choose Morpheus8 as they just want to feel more confident and look younger. It is common knowledge that double chins don’t just affect overweight people, slim people get them as well. There are many factors which create double chins, such as poor posture from constantly looking down at mobile phones and working on laptop/computers. These are some of the reasons why Morpheus8 has become so popular and as it is very difficult to treat the lower face without going in for surgery. For the upper face, muscle relaxing injections are available, but this is not possible on the lower face. In previous years, filler was the only option. People can however, end up looking overfilled or having what is now known as a chipmunk face, as seen in many publications. In comparison Morpheus8 provides natural skin tightening and skin contouring results without the need of filler or going under the knife.
About the Morpheus8 Treatment Course
We always recommend a course of three Morpheus8 treatments. Treatments can be done from 3 to 4 weeks apart and it takes at least 6 weeks before new collagen and elastin is formed naturally within the body. This means that results are not seen immediately, full results can take up to 12 months. We always advise our clients that they should start skin preparation 12 months before any big event they are planning for.
Clients are suitable from the age of 30 upwards. For younger clients, there are other treatment options that we would recommend. Top up treatment is recommended every 12-24 months after the course of Morpheus8 is completed. This will depend on age, lifestyle and needs . We also recommend maintenance treatments of radio-frequency or micro needling to continuously stimulate new collagen and elastin in the area. We like to view Morpheus8 as an intensive Boot Camp for the skin as you can imagine if you attended an intensive Boot Camp to lose weight and then never stepped foot in a gym again naturally your body would return to its original form. This is exactly the same with the face. After any intensive treatments we would always recommend regular maintenance treatments. We cannot stop the body from losing collagen and elastin every year. It is really important to constantly maintain new collagen, new and lasting moving forward.
If you feel you would like to tighten and lift the skin to restore a more youthful look then we always recommend booking in for a skin consultation to discuss treatments options and suitability. We do also offer HIFU and LP Facelift (radio frequency) as alternatives for those who would like zero downtime and or would rather not have microneedling.
