For many patients, who struggle with frustrating skin concerns like cellulite, sagging skin, or acne scarring, the abundance of body contouring and skin rejuvenation treatments can be overwhelming.

With so many options, it can be challenging to determine which treatment is the right fit. However, one treatment is quickly gaining massive popularity for its impressive results and customizability: Morpheus8 Body!

This revolutionary treatment stands out against similar treatments as it addresses a wide range of cosmetic concerns, making it an excellent option for those seeking optimal results with minimal risks and downtime! Fun fact – it is also a favorite beauty treatment for A-listers such as Jessica Simpson, Kim Kardashian and Eva Longoria!


What Is Morpheus8 Body Treatment?

Morpheus8 Body treatment is a one-of-a-kind, FDA-cleared, minimally invasive procedure that delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy through small needles to penetrate deep into the skin’s building blocks and stimulate collagen production by activating the body’s natural healing process.

What sets Morpheus8 Body apart from other treatments is its ability to deliver the deepest fractional treatments using a minimally invasive device. Unlike other treatments, this device can heat subdermal tissue to 8mm through a combination of 7mm and 1mm thermal profiles (depending on the treatment area). This revolutionary technology enables Morpheus8 Body to target deeper layers of tissue and provide optimal results with minimal patient downtime!

The device also features dual handpieces that allow for increased treatment functionality. The Morpheus8 handpiece is ideal for smaller treatment areas, while the Morpheus8 Body handpiece is designed for areas of the body that require larger subdermal adipose remodeling, such as the buttocks, thighs, abdomen, love handles, back, arms and even the inner knees.


What Are the Key Benefits of the Morpheus8 Treatment?

The Morpheus8 RF energy treatment offers numerous benefits to individuals seeking to improve their skin’s appearance and texture! First and foremost, the treatment is highly effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improving poor skin texture and tone. 

The treatment also stimulates new collagen and elastin development, improving skin elasticity and firmness and reducing signs of aging. 

Another notable benefit of Morpheus8 Body is its ability to target deep layers of tissue, resulting in more dramatic and long-lasting results than other treatments!

Morpheus8 Body is nonsurgical, making it convenient for busy patients who want to achieve noticeable improvements without disrupting their daily routine or going under the knife. It suits most patients, regardless of skin complexion or type!


Am I the Ideal Candidate for Morpheus8 Body?

Morpheus8 Body is ideal for patients with areas of mild to moderate sagging or loose skin, acne scars, skin laxity, stretch marks, sun damage, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. The treatment is particularly effective for those who have lost excess fat or have had a recent pregnancy and are left with excess skin; however, it should be noted that Morpheus8 cannot produce the same results as a surgical procedure and thus circumstances of significant excess skin or skin laxity may be best served by cosmetic surgery.

While Morpheus8 Body is suitable for most skin types, individuals with certain medical conditions or skin disorders may not be ideal candidates for the treatment as the device comprises several tiny needles that can irritate the skin. Therefore, we recommend consulting with Dr. Vinyard and his team of experts first and foremost, who will assess your individual needs and goals and recommend how many treatments should be incorporated into the treatment plan.


How Is Morpheus8 Body Different From Other Treatments?

Morpheus8 Body stands out from other invasive procedures due to its unique and innovative radiofrequency technology. The deep heating of the tissue promotes collagen production, improving skin elasticity and firmness. 

Unlike other treatments, Morpheus8 Body uses radiofrequency energy, which is highly effective in treating various cosmetic concerns, including loose or sagging skin, stretch marks, and uneven skin texture. Furthermore, Morpheus8 Body is minimally invasive, making it a safe and convenient alternative to surgical procedures. The dual handpieces of the device also allow for increased treatment functionality, enabling it to be customized to suit individual needs and goals.

The device also harnesses intelligent programmable technology and an LCD treatment screen to keep track of the procedure and ensure customizability. Overall, Morpheus8 Body’s advanced technology, safety, and effectiveness make it an excellent option for individuals seeking to improve their body’s appearance and achieve long-lasting results.


Morpheus8 Body vs. Traditional Microneedling

While both Morpheus8 Body and traditional microneedling imply creating micro-lesions in the skin to stimulate collagen production, the two treatments have several key differences. 

Microneedling uses a small handheld device with fine needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. In contrast, Morpheus8 Body uses radiofrequency energy and micro pins to penetrate deep into the skin, heating the subdermal tissue to 8mm. This deep heating stimulates collagen and elastin, significantly improving skin texture, tone, and elasticity.

Both treatments are minimally invasive and require little to no downtime, making them excellent options for people on the go. However, Morpheus8 Body achieves more dramatic, long-lasting results making it the superior choice!


What Is the Difference Between Morpheus8 Body and CoolSculpting Elite?

While both Morpheus8 Body and CoolSculpting Elite aim to improve body contour and shape, they utilize different technologies and approaches.

CoolSculpting Elite uses a cooling process called cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy fat cells in the treated area, which are then naturally eliminated from the body. It is ideal for patients struggling with stubborn pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise and each treatment can reduce fat by 20-25% in the treated area.

While the two treatments are different, they can both target specific areas of the body and achieve complementary results. However, CoolSculpting Elite has a greater propensity for fat reduction than the more mild effects produced by Morpheus8 while Morpheus8’s ability to address skin laxity and appearance is its primary advantage
