Radiofrequency treatments are, without doubt, one of the most incredible innovations seen by the world of medicine – and the aesthetics industry – in the 21st century.
With powerful treatments like Morpheus8 and Bodytite now available, it’s vital to make sure you invest in the treatment that’s going to provide the best results for your body and your self-image. We’re going to take a look at these two different radiofrequency treatments, and help you figure out which one will best suit your needs.
Radiofrequency Treatments – How Do They Work?
Radiofrequency or RF treatments use electromagnetic waves, caused by an oscillating electric current, to produce an exothermic reaction. This exothermic reaction heats the tissues of the body, and can be used to target tissues at specific subcutaneous levels, penetrating beneath the skin.
The targeted use of radiofrequency has many applications for health and pain relief, as well as providing great solutions to aesthetic concerns. The most common cosmetic applications of radiofrequency treatment are for fat reduction and skin tightening, with the best results occurring in the 30-50 year-old age range.
Morpheus8 treatments use fractional microneedling to deliver targeted heat just below the skin’s surface. The Morpheus8 technology allows the clinician to make precise dynamic adjustments to the depth of penetration, accurately targeting the layer of skin necessary to stimulate and increase collagen production.
The increased collagen production revitalises the skin, smoothing out wrinkles and improving the skin’s elasticity, resulting in a tighter appearance.
Fractional microneedling with Morpheus8 can help with discolourations, stretch marks/loose and sagging skin, acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles on areas all over the body. Morpheus8 is the only full-body fractional technology suitable for subdermal adipose remodelling (SARDS)
Bodytite is a minimally invasive fat reduction and removal procedure, also known as Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction.
Bodytite uses RF technology to heat stubborn pockets of fat, melting the excess fatty deposits which are then extracted through a very small incision. The incision site is chosen carefully, to reduce visible scarring, and is generally unnoticeable once healed.
The results of the treatment continue to develop over several months after the procedure. The full results are usually visible 9-12 months afterwards. Recovery is significantly quicker than traditional liposuction, with a much shorter downtime of one initial week, followed by six weeks wearing a compression garment in the treated area.
Bodytite is a good solution for those individuals who are in good health and close to their ideal weight but have stubborn fatty deposits that are resistant to dieting and exercise. It can also help with sagging skin.
Morpheus vs Bodytite – Which Should I Choose?
Given that both treatments are renowned for their amazing results on loose and sagging skin, it can be hard to figure out which treatment to choose.
In lots of cases, we’ve found that a combination of the two treatments can produce incredible results – using Bodytite to target the fatty deposits, followed by Morpheus8 treatments afterwards to stimulate collagen production in the treated area. The second treatment helps the skin achieve an improved elasticity where fat deposits have been removed, avoiding further sagging or wrinkles as a result of the absence in the treated area.
