Question: Skin damage after morpheus8

3 months ago I had one morpheous 8 treatment. My skin is now damaged I have holes and lines on my face which were not there before and texture changes. They are more noticeable in different lights, so not very deep but this is really affecting my confidence. Would you recommend any peels or treatments to help get my skin back to being smooth as it was before please, they are mostly on my cheeks lower face and neck.

Answer: Hello Poppyh,

From the explanation you have given it appears as if you have some scarring and maybe some skin discolouration. Photographic evidence or physical examination might be more useful to give you an appropriate answer. However ,you may still be on your way to achieving the full potential of your treatment results as my understanding is that results of morphoeus 8 could take three or more months to notice a significant difference . I do combination treatments of microneefling and radio frequency as well and in my experience you need time for results as you are using your own natural skin resources to generate a better looking skin . As for chemical peels there are many different ones out there . We have been using the Vi peel for many years with very good results .

I hope you find the answer to your question helpful .

My skin was not like this before the morpheous so I agree I think it has scarred my skin. I would not be confident to have any further needling treatments as this is what has caused the problems. I was looking for a possible solution maybe a medium or deep peel to help my skin get back to what it was before ? Hayley

Would a v I peel help smooth my skin out like it was before the morpheous 8

Firstly, we would suggest to contact the practitioner who performed the treatment so they are able to do a post treatment follow up review to assess your concerns.

If after this, you would still like another practitioner to assess your concerns - please contact us to book a consultation with Dr Anna Hemming who will be able to assist you further.

Answer: Dear PoppyH
Thank you for your enquiry. Morpheus8 is a microneedling device that uses radio frequency technology to tighten, lift and contour the skin by restoring collagen and elastin, the two proteins that help you maintain a youthful look.
Collagen is naturally produced by your body to provide strength and structure.
Elastin helps your skin return to its original position after it has been poked, stretched or pinched. Morpheus8 delivers uniform results across all skin types without any damage. It uses tiny needles to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin to allow the radio frequency to penetrate to create a controlled level of heat that stimulates the skin’s building blocks. In addition the tiny holes stimulate your body to heal itself by increasing elastin and collagen formation, allowing your skin to rebuild itself more easily than before, thereby leading to a natural anti-ageing process that improves complexion, delivers better texture, and tightens the skin.
Whilst I do not provide the Morpheus8 in clinic currently, I have looked into it as I want to provide this in the future. To my knowledge I am not aware reports of undesirable damage left to the skin such as those you have mentioned. I would like to suggest that you should report back to the clinic where you had your treatment so they are given an opportunity to see and explore what could have caused this, and to help rectify it.
Other options are to see a specialist such as The Harley Filler Specialist London with Dr Julian De Silva who is a leading facial cosmetic surgeon and a Morpheus8 specialist so you can get a professional opinion as to which way forward.
I work with Obagi Medical Grade skincare, and the Nu-Derm System which helps in retexturing the skin and promoting new collagen growth via stimulation with medical grade retinol, however without some photos I would not be able to fully advise if these would be suitable for you. If you would like to arrange a consultation, kindly contact me via my profile, and I can arrange to send out some consultation forms.
With kind regards
Dr Tehseen Khan

Answer: Hi
Your initial question should be directed towards the original doctor who did the treatment. If you are looking for a second opinion I can happily consult with you . My fee for opinion is £50 payable advance
I would consider needling and peels as the best options
