What is Morpheus8 Body?
As we age, our skin produces less collagen and elastin, which are important building blocks for firm, youthful-looking skin. Morpheus8 Body is a skin rejuvenation treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency technology to trigger collagen and elastin production, helping you to turn back the clock for a more confident you!

What to Expect During Your Morpheus8 Body Treatment?
During your Morpheus8 Body treatment, topical numbing cream will first be applied to the treatment area to ensure your comfort. Then, the special handheld device is placed against the skin, allowing the microneedles to penetrate the subdermal layer, creating micro-wounds. By creating extremely small wounds in the skin, the body’s repair process is triggered which involves elastin and collagen production. Radiofrequency (RF) is simultaneously emitted into the dermal layer of skin, tightening the fat below. Treatment time may vary from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Morpheus8 Body Results
Following treatment, there is no downtime required, so you can feel free to return to your regular activities. Mild redness or swelling may last for about 3-4 days as the skin heals. Be sure to avoid touching or applying any type of creams or lotions to the treated areas for 12 hours after your session. We will provide you with specific aftercare instructions to help ensure you receive the beautiful results you desire.
Some people may notice results as soon as their first treatment session, though we recommend 3 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart in order to see the best possible results. Once you have completed your recommended sessions, results will continue to improve for up to 3 months. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our office if you have any questions or concerns regarding your Morpheus8 Body treatment results.
