Our 5-Stage Face Lifting Treatment Can Correct The Physical Appearance Of Morphea On The Facial Features
The pictures above show the results gained by a client with Morphea.
What is Morphea?
Morphea, also called localized scleroderma or circumscribed scleroderma, and involves isolated patches of hardened skin on the face, hands, and feet, or anywhere else on the body, with no internal organ involvement.
Frontal linear scleroderma is characterized by a linear band of atrophy and a furrow in the skin that occurs in the frontal or frontoparietal scalp. It gets its name from the perceived similarity to a saber wound.
Signs and symptoms
Morphea most often presents as macules or plaques a few centimeters in diameter, but also may occur as bands or in guttate lesions or nodules.
Morphea is a thickening and hardening of the skin and subcutaneous tissues from excessive collagen deposition. Morphea includes specific conditions ranging from very small plaques only involving the skin to widespread disease causing functional and cosmetic deformities. Morphea discriminates from systemic sclerosis by its supposed lack of internal organ involvement.
Physicians and scientists do not know what causes morphea. Case reports and observational studies suggest there is a higher frequency of family history of autoimmune diseases in patients with morphea. Tests for autoantibodies associated with morphea have shown results in higher frequencies of anti-histone and anti-topoisomerase IIa antibodies. Case reports of morphea co-existing with other systemic autoimmune diseases such as primary biliary cirrhosis, vitiligo, and systemic lupus erythematosus lend support to morphea as an autoimmune disease.
How Our 5-Stage Face Lifting Process Corrected The Condition
Morphea presented on our client’s forehead area as basically a lack of skin and muscle tissue. The skin was thin, discolored and the texture uneven and ruff. There was also a notable lack of muscle tissue beneath the skin, providing no support so that a concaved effect in the problem area was distinctly evident.
After a course of 5-Stage Face Lifting treatments the skin appeared thicker, stronger and plumper overall. The texture of the skin also appeared smoother and more even due to the powerful effects of the medical-grade Venus Freeze therapy used within the process. Venus Freeze therapy works from the 5th layer of the epidermis upwards, rebuilding the skin by triggering rich levels of collagen, elastin, and blood vessel growth. This effect is long-term due to the cellular function of the skin cells being improved, causing them to create more collagen and elastin growth ongoing. The overall pigmentation of the skin also improved greatly due to the effects of the LED Light Rejuvenation used within the 5-Stage Face Lifting process.
The Microcurrent muscle therapy used at the end of the 5-Stage process created muscle mass under the skin of the forehead area where there was none before, creating a strong scaffolding for the skin to sit upon and correcting the concave effect that was noticeable before the course of treatments. The overall features of the face now appear more lifted, toned and youthful due to the effects of the Microcurrent therapy.

At Jessicat’s Medi-Spa we treat the face as a whole and although problem areas may be treated more intensively than others, we do not spot treat specific areas only within the treatments we provide. This is because the skin and musculature of the whole face must be lifted and strengthened as a whole in order to attain a truly youthful look.
Whilst many aesthetic treatments work to try and hide the effects of thinning skin and depleting muscle mass, treatments correct the signs of ageing by targeting the problems head-on. This gains our clients a natural and truly timelessly youthful look overall, enabling them to minimise or give up the use of injectable therapies and avoid painful and costly aesthetic surgical procedures.
