If you’ve been wishing for a flatter, tighter, or smoother belly, a Morpheus8 stomach treatment is a powerful non-surgical solution for you to consider. Morpheus8 is one of the most sophisticated skin and tissue remodeling systems. It triggers the body’s self-repair mechanisms to address a nearly endless list of skin and body concerns. 

In this post, we’ll explain how Morpheus8 stomach treatments can stimulate skin renewal and fat reduction, and what you can expect from a treatment.

Benefits of Morpheus8 for the Stomach

The main reason why Morpheus8 stomach treatments are so powerful is because they target all levels of the skin and the fat below them. The hybrid effects of microneedling and radiofrequency create a smoother, flatter, and more toned-looking stomach in a few different ways. 

  • Tighter skin: Morpheus8 accelerates the production of collagen and elastin, helping to tighten loose skin significantly. This can be life-changing after pregnancy or if you’ve recently experienced weight loss. 
  • Fat reduction: With deeper treatment settings, Morpheus8 can penetrate the subcutaneous level where fat accumulates. It triggers tissue coagulation, which helps reduce pockets of stubborn fat like in the stomach or under the chin.
  • Toned look: The combination of skin tightening and fat reduction leads to a more toned look, helping to flatten the belly and making muscle definition stand out more
  • Stretch marks: Morpheus8 helps your body repair the damage caused by rapid skin stretching, to fade stretch marks. 
  • Scar reduction: Microneedling breaks up scar tissue while radiofrequency promotes the production of smooth, healthy skin. 
  • Overall tone and texture: By stimulating a powerful healing response, Morpheus8 on the stomach can reverse any skin imperfection including wrinkles, texture, discoloration, and more.  

Who Is the Ideal Candidate?

The ideal candidate for Morpheus8 on the stomach is anyone who’s not thrilled with the appearance of the skin over their abdomen or who’s struggling with persistent fat. It’s the perfect post-pregnancy solution, and it can also tighten loose skin and fade stretch marks after weight loss.

There are a few other factors to consider, and you may want to avoid Morpheus8 altogether if any of the following apply to you:

  • You’re under the age of 18, currently pregnant, breastfeeding, or trying to become pregnant. 
  • Have a pacemaker or other electronic implants, diabetes, active infections in the treatment area, and any disorders that delay healing or blood coagulation. 
  • Are taking or have recently taken antibiotics, isotretinoin, immunosuppressants, or other medications with potential interactions.

What To Expect From A Morpheus8 Stomach Treatment

A Morpheus8 stomach treatment should always start with a consultation. Your nurse will assess your suitability for Morpheus8 treatment and discuss your goals and expectations. She will then design a personalized treatment plan for you and explain the benefits and risks of Morpheus8.

Arrive at least 30 minutes before your appointment to receive numbing cream – it will take about half an hour to take effect.

Once you’re ready, your nurse will start the treatment with the settings appropriate for your needs. She will press the treatment tip against your stomach, and the device will discharge the microneedles to deliver radiofrequency energy. You may feel some heat and pressure, but it shouldn’t be too painful. 

Your nurse will move the device across your stomach, making sure to cover the entire area. It’s a quick but methodical process and no inch of skin will be left untreated. Your treatment should take approximately 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of your stomach and the number of passes needed. If your goal is to reduce fat and tighten the skin, your nurse will make several passes with Morpheus8, to allow for treatment at every depth level. 

How Does Morpheus8 Work On Stomach?

Morpheus8 works through a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency. Microneedles penetrate through the skin and emit a radiofrequency energy that delivers targeted heating. It can target different depths of skin and tissue from 0.5 mm to 8 mm, so it’s very versatile and customizable.

Microneedling generates a controlled healing response without causing any damage, to increase collagen and elastin production. At the same time, the radiofrequency stimulates additional tissue coagulation, helping to firm the skin and reduce fat cells. 

Most patients will notice progressive improvement within a week or two of their treatment, as collagen and elastin production ramps up. Maximum effects are usually visible within 3 months. For dramatic tissue remodeling, you may need to have several Morpheus8 stomach treatments over the course of a few months. 

Morpheus8 Stomach Post-Treatment Tips

Morpheus8 can leave your stomach a little red and tender, so make sure to follow these aftercare tips for smooth healing: 

  • Keep your skin clean and gently moisturized, avoiding makeup or scented products. 
  • Avoid using harsh skincare products with retinoids, exfoliating acids, or other peeling agents for at least two weeks post-treatment. 
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing in the days after the treatment. 
  • Avoid unneeded sun exposure altogether, and wear sunscreen if you do go out in the sun with the abdomen exposed. 
  • Avoid intense exercise, jacuzzis, saunas, steam rooms, or hot showers for 24-72 hours post-treatment.
