For many of us, one of the greatest joys in life is spending a day on a sunny beach, feeling the sun’s warmth on our skin, and intermittently cooling down with dips in the refreshing ocean. However, over time, the sun’s rays can break down and damage skin tissue, causing your skin’s plumpness and tightness to wane, eventually leading to loose skin and wrinkles. Severe skin sagging can result from other occurrences, as well, such as pregnancy, weight loss, skin conditions, surgeries, and the natural process of aging.
With so many potential causes behind loose skin, it is no surprise that the global skin and body rejuvenation market was expected to hit $2.2 billion in 2022 as people worldwide look for options to tighten their skin and regain their confidence.
For convenience and aesthetic purposes, many patients are increasingly interested in nonsurgical interventions, such as the revolutionary Morpheus8 Body treatment. Morpheus8 Body is trusted by A-list celebrities, such as Kim Kardashian, Jessica Simpson, and some of Netflix’s “Too Hot To Handle” contestants, to get great results in addressing loose and drooping skin. Below is everything you need to know about the cutting-edge Morpheus8 Body treatment!
What is the Morpheus8 Body Procedure?
The Morpheus8 Body device combines a microneedling treatment and radiofrequency technology, more commonly known as RF energy, for fractional resurfacing of the skin. This combination of technology successfully tightens, tones, and remodels the skin, all while reducing fat and improving the body’s overall appearance.
Morpheus8 Body involves little to no risks as the device targets tissue sequentially, allowing the skin’s building blocks to reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process.
The bipolar RF energy heats the treated area to the deep layers beneath the skin, stimulating collagen production. At the same time, the microneedling “Burst” technology creates microscopic channels at multi-level treatment depths to allow for better energy absorption.
Overall, this treatment consistently achieves a smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance!
What are the Benefits of Morpheus8 Body?
Morpheus8 Body offers several benefits for those looking to improve the appearance and texture of their skin. The treatment boasts the following benefits:
Increased Collagen Production
Collagen is a buzzword and for a good reason. This essential protein is found throughout the subdermal tissue of the body, providing a youthful appearance and assisting with healing the skin. Unfortunately, as time passes and we age, the body produces less and less collagen.
Morpheus8 Body prevents this decline by stimulating collagen production through radiofrequency energy waves, which reach deep into the underlying tissues through micro-injuries but without thermal damage!
No Surgery Required
Morpheus8 Body offers one of the deepest fractional treatments on the market. It achieves this feat without surgery or extensive recovery times.
Most patients feel a slight prickling sensation during the brief treatment time. The treatment produces exceptional results while being minimally invasive, allowing you to return to your daily routine in no time.
Morpheus8 Body helps tighten and firm the skin, reducing the appearance of sagging or loose skin and wrinkles. The treatment also improves the overall texture and tone of the skin, helping reduce the appearance of scarring and other aesthetic imperfections. Additionally, Morpheus8 can address other skin imperfections, including sun damage and acne scarring. Finally, it also has the added benefit of modest fat reduction. Overall, the treatment offers a highly effective way to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin without the risk of injury and enhance your aesthetic appearance in more ways than one!
What Does Morpheus8 Body Treat?
Morpheus8 Body is a type of body contouring treatment that uses fractional microneedling and radiofrequency energy to improve the appearance and quality of the skin. It is typically used to treat loose skin and more problematic types of skin laxity, stretch marks, sagging skin, scarring, and other signs of aging.
The treatment is considered to be noninvasive and can be performed on various body areas, including the face, neck, and abdomen. The device also works on all skin types and tones without compromising treatment uniformity.

Morpheus8 Body can be used on various body areas, enabling customized treatments tailored to each patient’s specific needs and goals. Some of the preferred treatment areas are:
- Upper arms
How Many Morpheus8 Treatment Sessions Will I Need?
The number of required Morpheus8 treatment sessions will vary depending on the patient’s specific goals and concerns. For example, some patients will see initial results after just one treatment session, while others will require multiple treatments to achieve their desired results.
It is essential to consult with Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. William J. Vinyard, MD, FACS, and his expert team, who can assess your skin health and provide personalized recommendations. Typically, most patients need at least three treatment sessions spaced several weeks apart to see a significant reduction in the appearance of lax, uneven skin.
How About the Recovery Process?
The recovery process after a Morpheus8 Body treatment is minimal. You may experience some redness, swelling, or sensitivity in the treatment area immediately after the treatment. However, you can continue your usual routine, as these side effects should resolve within a few hours.
It is vital to avoid exposing the treated area to direct sunlight and to use sun protection for several weeks after the treatment to help prevent any complications or adverse effects, such as hyperpigmentation of the treated area. Applying makeup and other treatments, such as skincare products or lotions, should be safe after 24 hours. During recovery, it is also imperative to avoid any activities that may irritate or damage the treated area.
Dr. Vinyard will provide specific instructions on how to care for your skin after the treatment and monitor your recovery to ensure that you are healing correctly.
When Will I See My Desired Results?
In general, it can take up to 3-6 months to see the full effects of the treatment, as the body needs time to produce new collagen and stimulate the healing process.
Based on your circumstances, the expert team at The Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery will provide more specific information on when you can expect to see your desired results. It is essential to follow their instructions and recommendations for care, follow-up, and maintenance treatments to help ensure the best possible outcome.
