Morpheus8 Body

What is Morpheus8 Body

Morpheus8 Body combines the effectiveness of microneedling with radiofrequency energy (RF) to remodel and tighten skin on any area of the body. The microneedles penetrate the subdermal layer where a pulse of RF radiates evenly through the adipose layer. With treatment depths up to 7mm and a heat profile of up to 8mm, we can tighten and remodel tissue like never before. Adipose tissue is smoothed out and reduced, and the micro injuries caused by the needles induce collagen production, tightening the skin and prompting the body’s healing response to kick in. Your treatment area appears smoother and tighter.

What Does Morpheus8 Body Treat?

Morpheus8 Body can be used on any area of the body including arms, thighs, knees, abdomen, love handles and back. Morpheus8 Body can improve cellulite, stretch marks, sagging skin from aging and sun exposure, and excess skin from childbirth or weight loss. Morpheus8 is safe for all skin types and colors.

How Does Morpheus8 Body Work?

Morpheus8 Body uses state-of-the-art technology to administer 40 gold, silicone-coated needles at a depth of up to 8mm allowing us to remodel and tighten tissue like never before. Mirabile M.D. is the only Kansas City area Morpheus8 Body provider able to treat at 8mm depth! 

Once the needles are placed, the device delivers a pulse of radiofrequency energy that stimulates the production of elastin and collagen. Over the next several months, your body’s natural healing process will continuously and gradually prompt the body to generate new collagen and elastin.

What to Expect

Treatment times will vary depending on the size of the area or areas being treated.

You will be asked to arrive early to allow time for numbing of the area. We use a topical numbing cream and lidocaine injections to numb the area and minimize  discomfort. Other pain-control options are available including Pro-Nox, Mesoram, and sublingual sufentanil. 

Pro-Nox is a patient-controlled inhaled analgesia system that delivers a 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide mixture for the relief of pain and anxiety. The effects of Pro-Nox wear off in 10-15 minutes allowing patients to resume normal activity right away including driving. 

Mesoram is a multi-needle injection that delivers small amounts of lidocaine to the treatment area. Mesoram is ideal for Morpheus8 treatments as it numbs at varying depths below the skin and as the skin surface.

Sublingual sufentanil is a sublingual pill that alleviates pain and anxiety and can only be administered in a controlled medical setting. Patients receiving sublingual sufentanil cannot drive following treatment and must make arrangements ahead of time for a driver on the day of treatment.  

On average, patients need a series of 3 Morpheus8 Body treatments, spaced approximately 6 weeks a part, to achieve optimal results. Following each treatment, expect minimal pain or downtime. Many patients report the feeling of a minor sunburn for approximately 24 hours following treatment and mild itching for the next few days. While most patients note an improvement to skin immediately following treatment, full results are expected 3-6 months following the completion of your treatment series.
