5 Ways Morpheus8 RF Microneedling Can Be Used On The Body

Noninvasive treatments that improve the skin from head to toe are having a moment. In fact, due to their constant popularity, they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. While radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is among the more popular nonsurgical therapies, the one that shows no signs of slowing down is Morpheus8. Thanks to a full-on PR blitz, this buzzy treatment is everywhere, from Instagram to the bodies of celebrities like Kim Kardashian.

If you want to tighten sagging skin on the stomach, arms, or butt without resorting to surgery, radiofrequency microneedling treatment can do the trick.

Morpehus8 made a name for itself first as a skin rejuvenating treatment. With its ability to firm and tighten the skin, the procedure has made its way down the body and is now being used head to toe, literally. If you’re confused about where Morpheus RF microneedling can be used on the body, don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. Consider this your guide to the top 5 ways Morpheus8 RF microneedling can be used to improve the body.

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a radiofrequency (RF) microneedling device that creates controlled micro-injuries within the skin. These micro-injuries produce new collagen and improve texture and tone. The combination of microneedling with radiofrequency allows energy to be delivered deep to the dermis at the optimal temperature for collagen stimulation.

All RF microneedling devices (no matter how deep or superficial) work the same: they use needles to pierce the skin while simultaneously safely delivering radiofrequency energy. Together, this combination causes an injury in the skin, which initiates the body’s natural healing responses. As the body begins to heal from the injury, new collagen is created within the skin, causing the treated area to become thicker, firmer, and more youthful-looking. But Morpheus8 is a little different because it penetrates deeper than other devices (up to 8 millimeters deep) and also features a unique “burst” mode so that multiple layers of the skin can be treated at once for optimal collagen.

Where Can Morpheus8 Be Used?

Morpheus8 delivers the deepest fractional treatments available, heating subdermal tissue up to 8 millimeters. But depending where the treatment is administered dictates how deep it will go. Morpheus8 features dual handpieces for increased functionality: Morpheus8 works for smaller treatment areas and Morpheus8 Body for larger and deeper tissue treatments.

The Morpheus8 Body handpiece is big enough for larger areas, including the stomach, butt, and arms. In addition, the device features a burst mode, which automatically delivers the RF energy at different depths during a single cycle. This allows the treatment to address all three skin levels in millisecond intervals for a shorter treatment time and better uniformity. It also helps decrease the potential for skin injuries and enables full-body fractional procedures to be customized.

Morpheus8 can smooth, plump, tighten, and contour the skin without a single cut, making it ideal for treating various areas. The treatment also delivers energy to stubborn fat cells helping to contour the underlying tissue further. Morpheus8 is suitable for patients who desire more collagen production and tighter, firmer skin.

Morpheus8 helps firm the skin and get rid of stubborn pockets of fat. The main areas of treatment include:

  • The abdomen, as well as treating stretch marks and scars on the body
  • The face and neck
  • Thighs and butt
  • Chest
  • Upper arms
  • Above the knees
  • Flanks
  • Post-liposuction areas to improve contour deformities

Because Morpheus8 delivers RF energy through a precise system of microneedles, the treatment can be used on any area of skin that displays signs of wrinkles, discoloration, UV damage, stretch marks, scars, or rough texture. It can be used in areas where the skin is a little more delicate, like the skin around the eyes and cheeks. Morpheus8 is a suitable treatment alternative for both men and women who want to improve the look of their skin and its health from head to toe.

There are several reasons why patients like Morpheus8. The main benefit of Morpheus8 is its skin tightening and firming effect.

It also can eliminate fatty pockets on the lower face and throughout the body. The procedure also improves the skin on the body by:

  • Melting fat for improved definition
  • Smoothing out cellulite
  • Tightening the skin 
  • Decreasing the appearance of stretch marks and uneven skin texture
  • Evening out crepey and rippled-looking skin
  • Liquefying fat
  • Evening out skin texture

How Morpheus8 is Performed

First, your provider will apply numbing cream to your skin before the 30- to 45-minute treatment to make the procedure comfortable. Since Morpheus8 can be uncomfortable, we always suggest using topical numbing cream to make it tolerable. Pro-Nox gas can also be used as well as pre-treatment pain medication. If you are well-numbed, you shouldn’t feel anything at all.

The radiofrequency energy, which heats fat cells to melt them for a slimming and trimming effect, goes deep into the dermis layer when the microneedles are inserted into the skin. Because of the small size of the needles, most patients tolerate the procedure well, and it can be used on all skin tones and types.

Mild swelling and redness are typical side effects following the operation and often disappear within a few days. A month after treatment, results usually show themselves, and they get better over time with more Morpheus8 sessions. You’ll likely need a series of treatments to obtain optimal results.

What Else You Need to Know

Your provider can dial up or down the Morpheus8 device, so there’s no need to worry about the heat causing burns or pigment (however, more passes may be necessary). In addition, controlling the depths of the needles and reaching the deeper levels of skin allows improvement in areas that were not previously able to be treated. That’s why Morpheus8 has a variety of uses on the body.

There’s little to no downtime when performing the Morpheus8 treatment on the body. Most patients take one day off of work and their normal schedule, but you can resume your regular activities within 24 to 48 hours. But it’s important to know that the results from Morpheus8 are not instant and take time to show. So while you may notice an initial glow after the treatment, it can take at least three treatments and three months to see the result.
