What is MORPHEUS8 Body?
MORPHEUS8 Body is the most cutting-edge technology for tightening skin on the body.
It is a brand new 40-pin handpiece for our MORPHEUS8 device, allowing us to penetrate larger areas on the body up to 8mm deep. It is the only technology that is FDA-cleared to provide subdermal adipose tissue remodeling at this depth. This is a minimally invasive procedure, and can treat large areas at the deepest levels of RF that exist.
Who is a Candidate?
Almost everyone is a candidate, especially if you have loose skin, but we will schedule an evaluation with one of our Medical Providers to determine if this is the best treatment for you. Common concerns we address with this treatment are post-surgical scarring, stretch marks, skin tightening, especially after pregnancy, and addressing skin changes from weight loss and weight gain. This is the perfect “Mommy Makeover” without worrying about much downtime or surgery!
What will my treatment entail?
During your treatment, you will arrive up to an hour early for numbing. Depending on the treatment area and concern, we will either numb you topically, or we will inject numbing to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. We also offer Pro-Nox Nitrous Oxide for comfort during the treatment or our cryotherapy air chilling device.
Once you have been numbed, we will begin treating the area, stamping with the MORPHEUS8 Body handpiece until thorough treatment is complete. The treatment takes approximately 1 hour to complete.
How many treatments will I need?
Clinical studies recommend 3 treatments, each 1 month apart.
How is this Different from MORPHEUS8, MORPHEUS8 Prime, and MORPHEUS8 Resurfacing handpieces?
The MORPHEUS8 handpiece is used generally for the face and neck. The Prime handpiece is used for smaller areas, like the eyes and lip. Our Resurfacing tip is for resurfacing skin. The new Body handpiece has the ability to penetrate deeper, as it is most likely being used in thicker areas. It also has a special setting called “burst mode,” where energy is delivered automatically at up to 3 different tissue layers within the same single cycle.
How is MORPHEUS8 different than CoolSculpting and Exilis?
We like to always debulk fat first with CoolSculpting-but when there is just loose skin left-MORPHEUS8 Body does the job of tightening!
What is the downtime?
Downtime can be up to a week and include mild swelling and bruising, and mild discomfort. After the procedure you should keep the area moisturized and out of the sun.
When is the best time to schedule my appointment?
Fall and winter seasons when you have no sun exposure is best to treat the body with MORPHEUS8. When it comes to intensive exercise, we ask that you wait until you’re healed for as intensive sweating can compromise your healing.
