WHAT IS Morpheus 8 (Body)?
Morpheus8 Body is a skin tightening and firming treatment, aimed to reduce the appearance of skin laxity and to tighten both the skin and subdermal tissue. On the body it can be used also to reduce fat volume. Morpheus8 Body uses 'ablative radiofrequency' technology which is delivered into the dermis and subdermal layer of the skin using gold coated microneedles, which creates micro-injuries and heats below the surface of the skin. This then stimulates the production of collagen and elastin by the skin's fibroblast cells and may also cause a reduction in fat volume at deeper settings. In turn, this causes the skin to tighten and lift, improves skin quality and elasticity over the 3-6 months following the treatment.
HOW DOES Morpheus 8 (Body) WORK?
Combining the radiofrequency energy with a patented form of microneeding, Morpheus8 Body creates a biostimulation response in the dermal fibroblast cells of the skin. This response involves creation of micro-injuries using gold coated microneedles which deliver radiofrequency energy directly to the dermis and subdermal layer of the skin where collagen and elastin is produced. In the layer of fat below the skin, Morpheus8 Body can also cause controlled fat reduction. As the microneedles are insulated with a gold coating, the energy is delivered from the tips of needles into the dermis, rather than on the surface of the skin, which markedly reduces downtime as it minimises heating on surface of the skin, compared to other radiofrequency microneedling treatments or ablative lasers. This also ensures the treatment is suitable for darker skin types. The collagen and elastin stimulation continues for 3-6 months following the treatment course, so final results will be apparent at this stage post-treatment. Local anaesthetic is administered in the form of injections rather than topical cream to ensure complete coverage and anaesthesia.
What are the benefits?
The major benefits of Morpheus8 Body are skin tightening and lifting, improvement of skin texture and reduction of skin laxity. Small pockets of fat may also be targeted with Morpheus8 Body. When compared to other forms of radiofrequency microneedling or ablative skin resurfacing (such as fractional laser) has several additional benefits, including more precise targeting of skin depth for deeper subdermal tightening as well as reduced risk of post-inflammatory pigmentation, by virtue of the patented gold coating on the microneedles. We recommend three to four sessions, one month apart for the best results. As everyone's skin is different there is also the the option to do additional sessions 6 months later should your practioner recommend this for you.
What areas can be treated?
Morpheus8 Body can be used on any area of lax skin, anywhere on the body. The most commonly treated areas include the abdomen, thighs, buttocks and arms. It can also be used to treat stubborn pockets of fat anywhere on the body.
Can it be used with other treatments?
Morpheus8 Body is often used in combination with Profhilo Body, another collagen stimulating treatment which further supports skin tightening.
For areas of stubborn fat, Morpheus8 Body can also be used with our fat-reducing treatment including Aqualyx and Belkyra (injectable fat fat dissolving treatments) and cryolipolysis, a technique used to reduce areas of stubborn fat which diet and excercise can no longer support.
What is the downtime?
Morpheus8 Body can cause some redness immediately post-treatment. Tenderness can occur when local anaesthetic injections wear off (usually after a few hours) and bruising to stomach can last up to 14 days.
This section aims to help address some key questions, but of course your practitioner
will be able to answer all of your questions during the consultation
Can I have this treatment if I've had a caesarean section?
Yes - this treatment is ideal for treating the skin laxity post pregnancy and can help improve the appearance of C-section scars
Does Morpheus 8 help with fat loss?
Yes - the deeper Morpheus8 Body treatment is designed to tighten skin and also cause tightening in the deeper subdermal layer (i.e. the subcutaneous fat)
How long does it take to see results from this treatment?
Morpheus8 is a biostimulation treatment which utilises your own body's repair mechanisms in order to work. The process usually takes from 3-6 months to create the final results, dependent entirely on your own fibroblast cells' collagen and elastin capacity. Most people will see a mild improvement by month 3-4 and final results will usually appear by month 6 following the final treatment
