Morpheus8 is a state-of-the-art procedure that reduces excess fat and reduces skin laxity. It is the only treatment that can remodel full-body subdermal adipose tissue. 

It is so much more than a standard micro-needling treatment because it safely combines micro-needling and fractional RF energy to improve the skin at subdermal layers and trigger collagen production. Collagen is beneficial for improving uneven skin, stretch marks and other skin imperfections. The heat that comes from RF energy makes the skin firmer and coagulates the fat beneath the skin’s surface. RF energy is proven to be effective in rebuilding and remodeling collagen. 

This powerful treatment can treat the skin at different depths – from 1mm to 8mm. This ensures optimal results when it comes to skin rejuvenation. It is FDA-approved and can be used on all skin types – the micro-needles don’t harm the top layer of the skin, they improve the skin underneath its surface. 

Morpheus8 is ideal for addressing large body areas or smaller ones – each treatment can be fully customized to meet the patient’s needs and expectations. This technique for skin resurfacing and remodeling provides nicely shaped body contours and smoother skin.

How It Works


This procedure is truly unique because of its combination of RF energy and micro-needles – it reshapes and tightens the skin and triggers collagen production through coagulation and precise heating. During the treatment, microneedles pass the top layer of the skin and reach the sub-dermal layer. The pinholes, made by microneedles are tiny but strong enough to stimulate the body’s healing process that speeds up the cell turnover. 

The RF energy heats the sub-dermal layer of the skin and causes a renewal of collagen and elastin. As a result, the patient’s skin becomes much smoother and tighter.  

A combination of micro-needling and RF energy enables reaching deeper layers of the skin which guarantees the best results. Another important benefit of this treatment is that it leaves the surface layer of the skin unharmed which makes the treatment only minimally uncomfortable.


This treatment is absolutely effective in:

  • Firming the skin
  • Improving cellulite
  • Evening skin texture
  • Reducing scars and stretch marks
  • Improved creased skin
  • Reducing fat cells

Morpheus8 improves skin laxity, especially after weight loss, liposuction or childbirth. 

Stretch marks can affect both men and women and appear on the thighs, abdomen, breasts or buttocks. Morpheus8 is effective in reducing stretch marks because it breaks up the fibrous and scar tissue and thus improves the skin’s elasticity and firmness.

The treatment’s applicator consists of a large tip that has 40 very fine microneedles. These microneedles deliver RF energy to larger or smaller body parts, such as:

  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Flanks
  • Bra roll
  • Above the knees


Morpheus8 for the body treatment is safe, fast and minimally invasive. It is a full-body skin firming, skin tightening and fat reduction treatment. 

It doesn’t require a long downtime and it can be fully customized to address every patient’s specific skin concerns and aesthetic goals. 

With its Burst Mode, this treatment delivers RF energy to various depths in a single pulse. The energy is emitted through very fine microneedles which don’t harm the top layer of the skin. Because of the fast energy delivery, the treatment time is shorter, the uniformity is increased and each treatment is customized. 

Morpheus8 for the body effectively tightens the skin, melts excessive fat, reduces cellulite and stretch marks and lifts saggy skin.

The skin is much smoother and youthful-looking.

This treatment is perfect for patients who wish to improve their skin in a gradual and minimally invasive way. 

Morpheus8 for the body can be safely combined with other energy treatments or appropriate injectables to get even better results. The combination can be done on the same treatment session or a couple of days after. 

The results are long-lasting and continue to improve, as the new collagen and elastin start to build up. The elasticity of the skin is greatly improved once the excess fat is eliminated and skin tissue is firmed. 

Morpheus8 for the body truly represents the future of skin resurfacing and skin remodeling. 



    This procedure is perfect for patients who wish to avoid more invasive or surgical treatments. It is minimally invasive and it doesn’t require a long downtime. Patients can resume their daily routine quickly after the treatment.

    In general, ideal patients for this treatment should be in good overall health and have mild to moderate skin laxity. Patients with all skin types can benefit from this treatment because it has color-blind technology. This means that even darker skin tones can be treated.

    The treatment is not suitable for pregnant ladies, or for patients who have internal defibrillators, pacemakers or other electronic implants.


    The first step is of course the consultation with Lucia’s skin therapist. The therapist examines the body area which the patient wishes to improve with this treatment and creates a customized treatment plan. The treatment plan includes the number of sessions and the precise length of microneedles that are used during the treatment.

    Before the treatment can start, the patient gets a topical anesthetic that numbs the targeted body area and ensures maximal comfort.

    Then the therapist starts to apply the Morpheus8 applicator over the targeted area. The therapist moves the applicator across the targeted area in a stamping motion. Through the applicator, the delivered RF energy heats fatty tissue. RF energy is delivered in a controlled manner at the predetermined depth into the deeper skin layers. The top layer of the skin doesn't get harmed. The therapist moves the applicator as many times as necessary but he/she can overlap some parts of the targeted area. This way the results are absolutely efficient and consistent.

    Microneedles create microchannels that stimulate a healing process and the production of elastin and collagen. The microchannels are created in a matrix formation that supports the skin and makes it firmer and smoother. Once the skin is filled with newly produced elastin and collagen it gets remodeled and improved.

    During the treatment, the patient feels a moderate prickling sensation, followed by warmth. This is felt when microneedles penetrate the skin’s surface. The Morpheus8 for the body treatment is well tolerated by most patients.

    The treatment time is relatively short - it lasts around an hour. It all depends on how large is the treated area.


    Since the RF energy heats the deeper layers of the skin in a precise way and it doesn’t heat the top layer of the skin, it doesn’t ablate the surface of the skin. This powerful but gentle technology causes only minimal side effects compared to other resurfacing treatments. This definitely singles this treatment out. Also, one of the biggest advantages of the Morpeus8 treatment is that it can be used for darker skin tones because it doesn’t cause thermal damage to the top layer of the skin.

    Morpheus8 for the body cause only minor side effects like redness, soreness, small bumps, bruising, itching and swelling that should stop after a day or two. Right after the treatment, the patient may have tiny points of irritated skin which also resolve after a few days.

    Usually, the downtime is between 2 and 5 days - after that, the patient can return to everyday routine.

    During the recovery period, the patient should avoid strenuous exercise, saunas or hot baths because heat and sweat can irritate the skin. Also, the patient shouldn’t put on sunscreen or moisturizers for the first 24 hours and avoid irritating and scrubbing the skin. After that, the patient should use a high SPF when exposed directly to the sun.


    The results include firmer and smoother skin. The new collagen and elastin improve the skin texture and improve cellulite, stretch marks and other skin imperfections. The skin laxity is reduced because the skin is mildly lifted.

    To achieve the best results, the patient is recommended to have from 3 to 6 sessions. It all depends on the treatment plan. Every patient is different - some can achieve results after just one session. Generally, each session should be 4 weeks spaced out. This is because the treated body area needs to heal before the next session.

    Patients can expect the results to last between 1-2 years, all depending on their age, skincare and lifestyle.

    The results are long-lasting and completely natural-looking. To maintain the results, the patient can have additional touch-up treatments once or twice a year.
