Comprehensive Guide to BodyTite and Morpheus8

BodyTite and Morpheus8

BodyTite is a familiar name in the aesthetic scene. InMode co-founder Dr. Stephen Mulholland co-developed BodyTite and other minimally invasive radiofrequency liposuction and skin tightening systems in 2008. It received FDA clearance in 2016

BodyTite liquefies fat cells using RF energy, allowing for easier removal through a small tube. It also tightens the skin by stimulating collagen production, minimizing the loose, sagging skin often associated with traditional liposuction.

Morpheus8 is a recent (2019) invention by the California-based aesthetics technology manufacturer InMode Aesthetics. It received FDA clearance in 2020 and uses fractional radiofrequency (RF) technology. It uses a radiofrequency microneedling device that combines radio frequency(RF) with fractional micro-pins to change skin and fat. It’s the only device that combines radiofrequency with the micro-needling technique. 

Unlike BodyTite, which delivers continuous RF energy, Morpheus8 delivers it in targeted pulses. This creates microscopic zones of injury in the skin, triggering the body’s healing response. Morpheus8 can address a broader range of concerns, including:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Loose skin
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Stretch marks
  • Stubborn fat deposits

Synergy Between BodyTite and Morpheus8

Synergy Between BodyTite and Morpheus8

Despite BodyTite’s skin-tightening properties, traditional liposuction may leave some loose skin behind, particularly in areas with significant fat deposits. This is where Morpheus8 comes in. Its targeted radiofrequency (RF) energy can further tighten the skin after BodyTite has removed excess fat.

A patient posted on realself, “I noticed loose skin around my stomach after having kids. BodyTite helped remove the excess fat, and Morpheus8 tightened the remaining skin. I still have some loose skin but it’s so much better than before. Thank you summer! Also I am sunburned a little bit that’s because for the first time since kids I wore a bikini!’’

BodyTite is excellent at eliminating more extensive fat deposits, but some areas may have pockets of resistant fat that remain. Morpheus8 targets these stubborn areas by promoting fat cell breakdown, further refining your body contour.

BodyTite tackles body sculpting by removing fat, while Morpheus8 fights various signs of aging on the skin. Combining them provides a more comprehensive approach to a youthful look. Imagine tighter abs with improved skin texture or a sculpted jawline with diminished wrinkles. This is the power of BodyTite and Morpheus8 working together.

Patient Experiences:

  • “Just at 1 week out of surgery. Pain has been minimal and my recovery is progressing well. Results will continue to improve over the next several months.”
  • “I still have some loose skin but it’s so much better than before. I feel a little bloaty in these pictures—my stomach is usually way more flat. Thank you summer! Also, I am sunburned a little bit, that’s because for the first time since kids I wore a bikini!”
  • “I had a consultation where a doctor explained BodyTite and Morpheus8 and the expectations. I felt comfortable and informed. I’m only 3 weeks out from the procedures and I’m already excited for my results which will only get better I hope.” 

Deep Dive into Morpheus8

Morpheus8 makes it possible to achieve a youthful look without needing extensive surgeries or invasive procedures. It combines microneedling and Radiofrequency (RF) energies to improve the appearance of your skin. The application of RF energy in Morpheus8 elicits several physiological responses:

  • It disrupts the cellular homeostasis, triggering a stress response within the targeted tissue. This response stimulates the fibroblasts to increase collagen production as a reparative mechanism.
  • It leads to the contraction of existing collagen fibers. This tightening effect contributes to immediate improvements in skin laxity and a more youthful appearance.
  • Neocollagenesis. Cellular stress and thermal stimulation further promote the synthesis of new collagen fibers, contributing to long-term improvements in skin texture and elasticity.

Microneedling creates tiny controlled injuries in your skin, which triggers your body’s natural healing response and boosts collagen production – the protein responsible for keeping your skin plump and youthful. Morpheus8 takes this further by using RF energy to deliver gentle heat deep into your skin.

This further stimulates collagen production and elastin resulting in:

  • Smoother and tighter skin
  • Reduced wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Improved skin texture
  • Fat reduction
  • Delay signs of aging

Morpheus8 is a safe and effective treatment for people:

  • Experiencing visible signs of aging
  • With stubborn fat deposits in specific areas
  • With stretch marks they wish to cut.

Morpheus8 is highly customizable. It even has a “burst” mode that delivers RF energy in short, concentrated doses, stimulating collagen production across multiple layers of your skin for a more complete rejuvenation effect.

Morpheus8 Applications

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive treatment option in aesthetic medicine that addresses many skin concerns. It offers excellent versatility and can be used to target different body areas, including:

  • Face: Morpheus8 treats fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and forehead. It also treats loose skin on the jowls and neck. The treatment results in a more well-defined jawline and cheekbones. 
  • Body: Morpheus8 improves skin texture and laxity in the abdomen, arms, and thighs.

Morpheus8 stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. The two are proteins that comprise the primary fibers of the extracellular matrix in skin connective tissue. 

Collagen production helps the body with:

  • Smoother skin texture
  • Reduced scarring
  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles

To be eligible you should have good overall health and mild to moderate signs of aging.

Detailed Overview of BodyTite

Starting Your BodyTite Journey: Booking a Consultation

BodyTite Technology

BodyTite is a body contouring treatment that uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to tackle stubborn fat pockets and loose and sagging skin. 

It uses two specialized electrodes to deliver controlled RF energy. The internal electrode is inserted beneath the skin to deliver energy that creates heat within the targeted tissue layers leading to the disruption of the fat cell membranes as well as liquefing them. The liquefied fat is then removed through a cannula. The RF energy minimizes the appearance of loose skin by also penetrating deeper tissue layers and stimulating collagen production.

Benefits of BodyTite

  • Tighter, more sculpted figure 
  • Minimized downtime and discomfort
  • Improved overall body shape and smoothness
  • Reduced appearance of cellulite and a more youthful look

According to clinical studies, 95% of BodyTite patients report significant contouring improvements as well as a visibly tighter and rejuvenated physique.

Treatment Process and Details

Treatment involves:

  1. Consultation with a qualified doctor. This involves:
    • Review of your medical history
    • Discussion of your desired outcomes
    •  Physical examination
  2. Cleaning of the marked area for treatment and anesthesia administration. 
  3. Making of a small incision and insertion of the internal electrode.
  4. Liquified fat suctioning.
  5. Suturing of the incision.

Post-treatment care involves:

  • Compression garments – help with swelling and support tissue healing.
  • Infection prevention by maintaining proper hygiene and following your discharge instructions.
  • Avoid strenuous activity for a few days or weeks.
  • Follow-up appointments.
