We all know the look of youthful skin: soft, unblemished, smooth and even. But aging, along with experiences like pregnancy and childbirth, can leave skin dimpled, stretched, and wrinkled.
Fortunately, there’s now a way to remedy the signs of aging skin throughout the body – without surgery, anesthesia or prolonged recovery. Morpheus8 Body is the latest in fractional resurfacing, providing the deepest fractional treatments available – up to 8 mm beneath the surface of the skin.
As with Morpheus8, Morpheus8 Body helps promote collagen and elastin production to restore and rejuvenate damaged tissue. However, Morpheus8 Body was designed to treat large body areas efficiently and at unrivaled depth, delivering bipolar radio frequency energy that treats multiple levels of body tissue at once. Morpheus8 Body allows for full-body treatment in a fraction of the time previously required, reducing skin injury and helping ensure uniform treatment.
Because Morpheus8 Body microneedles penetrate the subdermal layer of the skin, it is an effective tool for almost anywhere on the body. Its 8 mm depth is double the depth of other treatments on the market, enabling the Morpheus8 Body technology to reach adipose tissue too deep for other treatments to address.
Morpheus8 Body is ideal for thigh dimpling, loose upper arm skin and sagging abdominal, back and jaw tissue – as well as delicate skin on the chest and neck. Safe for all skin types, Morpheus8 Body brings minimal risk of thermal damage or hyperpigmentation, and treatments are delivered in 30-60 minute sessions.
For Morpheus8 Body treatments, a numbing cream is applied prior to treatment to ensure comfort, and patients are free to return to normal activities as soon as they would like. Some patients experience redness similar to a sunburn for a few days after treatment, as well as mild swelling, taut or shiny skin for the first week after treatment, and occasional scabs or peeling.
Most patients begin to see results within four weeks, with full results experienced after three months. For maximum benefit, a series of three treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart is recommended.

Frequently Asked Questions
How is Morpheus8 Body different from Morpheus8?
The Morpheus8 Body uses microneedling and radiofrequency to sculpt the body effectively, efficiently and with shorter treatment times. The fractional treatment is effective and safe for all skin types and tones. This technique penetrates deep into the skin and fat layer to recontour the aging tissue to tighten skin, reduce fat pockets and even skin tone.
The Morpheus8 Body uses the same technique as Morpheus8, but is the only FDA-approved technique for 8mm deep subcutaneous adipose tissue alteration. The original Morpheus8 penetrated up to 4 mm which is optimal for facial and neck anatomy. The Morpheus8 Body handpiece has a unique large surface tip consisting of a matrix of 40 thin gold-coated microneedles and a thermal profile of 7mm, plus an additional heat profile of 1mm.
The larger tip allows for faster treatment of larger areas. The 40 gold-coated needles in the Morpheus8 Body tip allow it to penetrate deeper than the others. This allows Morpheus8 Body to provide bipolar radiofrequency radiation at varied treatment depths in a single cycle.
The ability to target tissue successively at three layers in millisecond intervals reduces treatment times, reduces skin harm, improves treatment uniformity, and allows for personalized full-body fractional procedures.
What makes Morpheus8 Body different from other body contouring and tightening treatments?
When researching techniques to tighten and shape the body, there are two options-going under the knife, or having a non-surgical procedure. Non-Surgical body contouring is a process for removing or reducing persistent fat pockets without general anesthesia and the risks associated with invasive surgery. Non-Surgical fat reduction is another name for the procedure. There are multiple nonsurgical body sculpting treatments to shape and contour hips, thighs, arms and the abdomen. Morpheus8 Body is superior because the treatment provides an all in one option including both microneedling and RF heat energy, which penetrates deep into the dermal skin layer, causing a shrink wrap-like effect and tightening the skin and fat beneath, resulting in shrinking, skin tightening, and smoothing.
How Does Morpheus8 Body work?
RF (radio frequency) radiation gently warms the skin’s deep layer tissue, regenerating collagen and encouraging cell development. Morpheus8 Body renews, tightens, and tones the skin with micro-pins, and encourages subdermal adipose tissue remodeling. It’s a quick, painless treatment with minimum recovery time. Wrinkles and lines are reduced without incisions, blood loss, or anesthesia.
Using Morpheus8 Body the tone and texture of hard-to-treat parts of your body, such as arms and thighs, are tightened, fat volume is reduced, and collagen production is stimulated. It’s also a good cellulite treatment that doesn’t require surgery. Morpheus8 Body can also treat surgical and acne scars, as well as the crepey skin on the arms or above the knees, as new collagen is produced.
Who is a good candidate for Morpheus8 Body?
The best candidates are women seeking body contouring without anesthesia or incisions with minimal downtime, who can also benefit from this deep tissue remodeling. The procedure is safe on all skin tones, textures, and pigments to smooth the skin around large body areas and reduce irregularities.
The best candidates for Morpheus8 Body are women who wish to:
· Tighten skin
· Break down superficial fat pockets
· Improve cellulite appearance
· Reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars
· Improve “rippled” skin
· Even and smooth skin texture
· Treat acne scars
· Repair sun damage
How many Morpheus8 Body treatments are recommended and how long should I wait between treatments?
Optimal results are achieved after three treatments spaced 4 weeks apart to treat deep wrinkles and skin laxity.
What is the Morpheus8 Body treatment like and is it painful?
No, Morpheus8 Body treatment is not painful. Prior to treatment, a local anesthetic cream is applied for 1 hour to numb the area. This is to ensure that the patient is as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure. The Morpheus8 Body handpiece is placed on the treatment area, allowing microneedles to permeate the epidermis. Once injected, the microneedles create radiofrequency (RF) waves, to penetrate the deep dermal skin layer. Due to the small size of the needles, the majority of patients tolerate the procedure with little discomfort. This straightforward, safe treatment is effective on all skin types. Some redness and swelling immediately following the treatment is expected, and typically resolves within 2-3 days.
What body parts are best treated by Morpheus8 Body?
Morpheus8 Body is meant to treat larger body areas such as:
- Bra Rolls
- Anywhere post liposuction
When can I expect results?
The best results from Morpheus8 Body are achieved after a series of 3 treatments. Following a treatment, expect 3-5 days of redness, similar to a sunburn, slight edema or swelling, and a feeling of tightness. Bruising is common. It is important to maintain proper skin hydration, and makeup may be worn 24–48 hours following the treatment. Aesthetic results improve after a single treatment with optimal results enjoyed 3 months after third treatment when collagen production is complete.
How long do the results of Morpheus8 Body last?
As with any non-surgical treatment, Morpheus8 Body results require regular maintenance. We recommend a single maintenance session every 6-12 months. Of course, we encourage our patients to always strive to make healthy food choices and maintain an active lifestyle.
Can Morpheus8 Body Be Used In Combination With Other Treatments?
Yes, Morpheus8 treatments are included in Aviva treatments for non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation, may be added to a Labial Puff or Wing Lift to optimize a youthful labial appearance, among others.
