For years, plastic surgery was the only way to firm up loose skin on the body. And while it works, not everyone is game for incisions, scars, downtime, and everything else that comes with a majorly invasive cosmetic procedure. But, lucky for us, science has advanced, and today there’s more than one way to get your body back.
If you want to tighten sagging skin on the stomach, arms, or butt that’s lost its ability to snap back without resorting to surgery, a non-surgical radiofrequency microneedling treatment can do the trick. The safe, effective, and popular Morpheus8 procedure is the go-to for smoothing and tightening loose skin and targeting stubborn pockets of fat for a brand new you.
HOW DOES MORPHEUS8 WORK ON THE BODY?
Morpheus8 is a safe and effective RF microneedling solution for full-body subdermal adipose remodeling.
It delivers the deepest levels of radiofrequency energy–up to eight millimeters (the first of its kind)–to the body through safe and controlled micro-injuries within the skin. This depth and effectiveness allow the energy to penetrate the subdermal tissues for collagen stimulation and tissue contraction. As the body begins to heal from the injury, the skin in the treated area becomes thicker, firmer, and more youthful-looking.
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.
WHAT CAN MORPHEUS8 DO FOR MY BODY?
Morpheus8 is a safe, effective, and minimally-invasive RF fractional device that works in multiple areas. It uses a combination of radiofrequency and microneedling to melt fat, stimulate collagen, improve cellulite and stretch marks, and tighten the skin.
In addition, the non-surgical tightening solution is FDA cleared to deliver energy at its precise treatment depth, allowing it to treat deeper than other procedures.
This bipolar fractional tissue treatment stimulates collagen production in the dermis while also treating fat (in certain areas) by emitting heat to remodel collagen. As new collagen forms and the skin contracts, it becomes tighter and more youthful-looking. Radiofrequency energy heats fat cells to melt them for a slimming and trimming effect.
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.
It’s important to know that the results from Morpheu8 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 total result.
The treatment areas
Morpheus8 helps firm the skin and get rid of stubborn pockets of fat. Some of the more popular treatment areas include:
- The stomach
- Upper arms
- Bra roll
- The area above the knees
- The flanks
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
The main benefit of Morpheus8 is its skin tightening and firming effect.
It also can get rid of 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
WHO IS THE IDEAL CANDIDATE?
Morpheus8 works for many patients because of the reduced risk of discoloration and scarring.
It’s safe for even darker skin types, including Fitzpatrick skin type VI, with little to no chance of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Since just the needle tips emit radiofrequency energy, nearly every skin type and tone are compatible with Morpheus8 because the top layer of skin is not heated up.
While the procedure is safer for darker skin, it’s always best to schedule a complete consultation first to ensure Morpehus8 is suitable for your specific concerns.
WHAT IS THE COST OF MORPHEUS8 ON THE BODY?
A Morpheus8 treatment varies in cost from provider to provider, and those in large cities often charge more.
In addition, the treatment area and the number of sessions needed to obtain your desired results will also influence the overall cost.

No, treating the body with Morpheus8 is painless. Before the procedure, your provider will apply topical numbing cream and inject the treatment area with an anesthetic. You will also receive Pro-Nox to make the treatment more comfortable. Most patients say they don’t feel anything during the treatment or afterward.
There’s little to no downtime when performing the Morpheus8 treatment on the body. Most patients choose to take one day off of work and their normal schedule, but you can resume your regular activities within 24 to 48 hours.
It’s normal for the area to be red and have some small pinpoint bleeding post-treatment. It may feel sore or itchy, but it will dissipate within a day after the procedure. Overall, there should be minimal discomfort. However, keeping the area well hydrated with a good moisturizer or an ointment is essential.
The results from Morpheus8 are not instant and can take up to three months to show on the body. However, the results are long-lasting, and yearly maintenance sessions are recommended.
Aftercare is of the utmost importance. Wash only with a gentle cleanser and avoid all exfoliators until you’re given the green light to use them again. You’ll also want to use an essential moisturizer or a healing ointment for about one week. Daily use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen is vital to protect your skin from the sun. You’ll also want to avoid wearing makeup for the first few days.
