What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a facial and body remodeling device that reduces fat and improves skin tone. Morpheus8 combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to refresh the skin and reshape the underlying tissue. This unique and versatile procedure can target:

  • Mild skin laxity
  • Minor deposits of excess fat
  • Sun damage
  • Wrinkles
  • Scars

Morpheus8 can be performed throughout the body, including the buttocks and abdomen. Dr. Emer also performs Morpheus8 as part of facial sculpting treatments, most commonly along the jawline and neck.

Right for you?

Who Is a Candidate for Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is safe and effective for patients of all skin tones. Healthy adults with a desire to improve the appearance of the skin and reduce fat may be good candidates for Morpheus8.

Dr. Emer can determine if you are a good candidate for Morpheus8 by meeting with you in a consultation. In the consultation, he will assess your cosmetic concerns and learn about your treatment goals and your medical history.

Dr. Emer has a unique aptitude for creating customized, combination treatments. His expertise and experience allow him to select the technologies and methods that will give you the best results.

Morpheus8 is designed to target small pockets of fat and mild skin laxity. Patients with considerable excess fat or those who suffer from loose, hanging skin may be better candidates for more invasive fat removal or skin tightening procedures.

Procedure Details

How Does Morpheus8 Work?

Morpheus8 pairs two distinct and highly effective cosmetic enhancement technologies: RF heat energy and microneedling. The combination of these two proven modalities provides significant improvements to the treatment area.

Morpheus8 allows for deep penetration of RF energy. The depth can be customized to precisely address each patient’s unique needs. As a result, Morpheus8 can treat a broad spectrum of cosmetic concerns, including more severe scarring and skin laxity than can be addressed with similar microneedling RF treatments like InMode Fractora.

Dr. Emer’s patients love their Morpheus8 results because the procedure addresses surface-level concerns with the skin, as well as having a body sculpting effect. Morpheus8 works by sending RF energy through the microneedles and into the targeted tissues to:

Melt Fat

Morpheus8 is the only FDA-approved subdermal adipose remodeling device of its kind. Dr. Emer uses the device to deliver controlled RF heat to three layers of fat. The heat helps to liquefy targeted fat cells, so your body can process them for permanent elimination. Once this process is complete, patients observe slimmer, more defined contours.


Microneedling is well-known for its collagen-boosting effects. Tiny pins on the tip of the Morpheus8 device create micro-injuries to the surface of the skin, which initiates the body’s natural healing response. Increased collagen production results in stronger, smoother skin over time.

What to Expect During Morpheus8 Treatment

Dr. Emer provides Morpheus8 treatments in-office at his West Hollywood medical practice. A Morpheus8 session typically takes an hour or less.

Dr. Emer begins the procedure by applying a topical numbing cream to the treatment site(s). For patients whose procedure involves a particularly high setting on the Morpheus8 device, Dr. Emer may recommend local anesthesia to prevent discomfort during the session.

Dr. Emer will set the device to reach specific layers of tissue in the targeted area based on your unique anatomy and desired outcome. He will then apply the Morpheus8 device across the treatment area. The tiny needles will penetrate the skin to create microchannels which allow the RF energy to reach the intended tissue. Patients often report feeling pressure as the device is applied. Some patients may also experience minor discomfort during treatment.

Patient Story


Morpheus8 Results

Noticeable improvements can appear as soon as three to four days after a Morpheus8 treatment. It may take about three weeks to see skin tightening effects. Patients should expect to see complete results after about 90 days when new collagen has developed.

Morpheus8 results can be long-lasting. The visible effects of fat reduction from Morpheus8 can be permanent in patients who maintain an optimal weight. The collagen-boosting effects of the treatment can last up to one year, depending on your body’s natural rate of aging. Dr. Emer often recommends yearly Morpheus8 sessions to maintain improvements.

The Dr. Emer Difference

How Does Dr. Emer Do Morpheus8 Differently?

At our Beverly Hills medical practice, Dr. Emer performs Morpheus8 to enhance a range of treatment outcomes. The skin rejuvenation and fatty tissue remodeling effects of Morpheus8 often make it an essential complement to other procedures like:


Performed after fat removal with liposuction, Morpheus8 provides essential tissue remodeling to prevent indentations and irregularities in the skin.

Internal heating with Renuvion, FaceTite, and BodyTite

The results of advanced skin tightening treatments, such as non-surgical facelifts and neck lifts with FaceTite, can be maintained and enhanced with Morpheus8.


After releasing fibrous bands with Cellfina, Dr. Emer can use Morpheus8 to smooth scar tissue and resurface the skin in the treated area for maximum cellulite reduction.

truSculpt FLEX

truSculpt FLEX builds and defines muscles. Morpheus8 can complement truSculpt FLEX by remodeling tissue and tightening skin for improved definition and contours.

Stretch Mark Reduction

Dr. Emer often uses a combination of Venus Viva, ablative laser treatments, and Morpheus8 to reduce the appearance of stretch marks

Knee Rejuvenation

Morpheus8 can be combined with thread lifting, internal heating with Renuvion, Ultherapy, and/or Sculptra injections to dramatically improve wrinkles and skin laxity in the knee area without the need for surgery.

To maximize Morpheus8 results, Dr. Emer also uses a targeted post-treatment skincare protocol. For about 72 hours after Morpheus8, your skin has a significantly increased ability to deeply absorb skincare products.

Dr. Emer capitalizes on this opportunity by recommending patient-specific medical-grade skincare products. Post-treatment skin rejuvenation typically involves products with ingredients like vitamin C, peptides, growth factors, retinol, and hyaluronic acid.

How Much Does Morpheus8 Cost?

The price of Morpheus8 is based on the size of the treatment area(s) and how many sessions are needed to achieve your desired outcomes. Dr. Emer often pairs Morpheus8 with complementary treatments to maximize improvements. Additional procedures will impact the overall cost of your skin rejuvenation and contouring protocol. Dr. Emer will review treatment options and pricing information with you in your consultation.
