Boost collagen, tighten skin, and elevate contours

Morpheus8 Body is an innovative cosmetic procedure for treating skin laxity, cellulite, and stretch marks. It combines two powerful technologies: microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy. The procedure involves inserting microneedles into the skin, which delivers controlled RF energy deep into the dermis. This dual-action approach stimulates collagen and elastin production while promoting cellular turnover, resulting in improved skin texture and firmness.

The microneedles create microscopic channels in the skin, allowing the RF energy to penetrate more effectively and target multiple layers of tissue. As the RF energy heats the deeper layers of the skin, it triggers a natural healing response, leading to collagen remodeling and tissue tightening over time. Additionally, the thermal energy breaks down fat cells, reducing the appearance of cellulite and contouring the body. Morpheus 8 Body in St. Louis offers a non-invasive solution for achieving smoother, more youthful-looking skin with minimal downtime.

Add PRP to boost your Morpheus8 Body results

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a regenerative treatment that utilizes the body’s own platelets to stimulate tissue repair and regeneration. It involves extracting a small amount of the patient’s blood and then separating the platelets from other blood components through a centrifugation process. The resulting concentrated platelet-rich plasma is then injected or applied topically to the treatment area. Platelets contain growth factors and other bioactive proteins that play a crucial role in wound healing, tissue regeneration, and collagen production.

When combined with Morpheus8 Body, PRP enhances the overall results by accelerating the healing process and promoting collagen synthesis. The microneedling and radiofrequency energy delivered by Morpheus8 create micro-injuries in the skin, triggering the body’s natural repair mechanisms. Introducing PRP into the treated areas provides an abundant source of growth factors and cytokines, which stimulates tissue repair and regeneration. This synergistic approach improves the effectiveness of Morpheus8 Body in St. Louis and enhances skin rejuvenation.

Your personalized Morpheus8 Body session at SVSS

During the initial consultation at SVSS Aesthetics, Rachel will assess your skin type, concerns, and treatment goals to determine if Morpheus8 Body is suitable for you. Rachel will explain the procedure in detail, including what to expect during and after treatment, any potential risks, and the expected outcomes based on your individual needs. Rachel will begin the treatment by cleansing your skin and applying a topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort. The Morpheus8 device will then deliver microneedling and radiofrequency energy to the targeted areas. The procedure typically takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. Most patients require multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart to achieve optimal results, usually ranging from 3 to 6 sessions. Rachel will create a customized treatment plan tailored to your skin concerns and desired outcomes.

How different skin types respond to Morpheus8 Body

Normal Skin

Normal skin types respond well to Morpheus8 Body in St. Louis. They may experience improved skin texture and firmness and a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Since normal skin has balanced oil production and few sensitivity issues, it tends to heal quickly with minimal risk of adverse reactions. Patients with normal skin can easily undergo multiple sessions.

Dry Skin

Individuals with dry skin benefit greatly from Morpheus8 Body. The procedure helps stimulate collagen production and improve hydration levels in the skin. However, it’s essential to ensure proper post-treatment moisturization to prevent further dryness. Dry skin types may require additional hydration and gentle skincare products to maintain optimal results.

Oily Skin

Those with oily skin can also see positive results from Morpheus8 Body, particularly in terms of tightening and refining the skin’s texture. The procedure can reduce the appearance of enlarged pores and acne scars, common concerns for individuals with oily skin. However, caution must be exercised to avoid exacerbating any existing acne or inflammation.

Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin types require careful consideration. While the procedure is generally safe for sensitive skin, there is a risk of increased redness or irritation post-treatment. Our providers may recommend a lower-intensity setting or incorporate additional measures to minimize discomfort, prevent flare-ups, and reduce the risk of adverse reactions to Morpheus8 Body in St. Louis.


What is the downtime after Morpheus8 Body treatment?

After Morpheus8 Body treatment, you may experience redness, swelling, and minor discomfort in the treated area, which typically subsides within a few days. Some patients may also notice slight bruising, but this is usually minimal. You can resume your daily activities immediately following the procedure, although it’s essential to avoid direct sun exposure and strenuous exercise for a few days to allow your skin to heal properly.

What causes these post-treatment skin responses?

The side effects of Morpheus8 Body, such as swelling and redness, stem from the activation of the body’s healing response by the microneedles and radiofrequency heat. Swelling occurs due to the accumulation of nutrient-rich fluid, while redness is a natural reaction to the intentional trauma caused by the microneedling device.

When will I see results from Morpheus8 Body?

Results from Morpheus8 Body in St. Louis treatment are typically gradual, with noticeable improvements becoming apparent within a few weeks to months after the procedure. As collagen production increases and the skin undergoes remodeling, you’ll continue to see enhancements in skin texture, firmness, and overall appearance over time. The full effects of the treatment may take several months to appear as your skin continues to regenerate and improve.

How long do the results of Morpheus8 Body last?

The longevity of Morpheus8 Body results varies from person to person and depends on factors like age, lifestyle, and skincare regimen. To maintain optimal results, periodic maintenance may be recommended, typically once or twice a year, following the initial treatment course.
