How Does Morpheus 8 Cellulite Removal Work?
Dr. Hellman was one of the first dermatologists to offer Morpheus 8 for cellulite in New York City, finding that it works more effectively than other technologies to smooth and remove lumpy skin.
Morpheus 8 is a fractional, safe device that uses radiofrequency (RF) and microneedling. The treatment molds fat subdermally to produce a sleeker and smoother appearance. With Morpheus 8’s new body burst mode, Dr. Hellman can send RF waves deeper into the layers of skin tissue. Each pulse delivers energy to 3 different depths of the skin, treating the entire thigh in a third of the time when compared to older technologies.
The process molds fat cells and contracts the connective tissue. Simultaneously, micro-wounds in the skin cause the body to regenerate and repair itself by producing new collagen and elastin. It has been approved by the FDA as a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD) because it treats the deeper layers of the skin, rather than just the surface.
What to Expect
Most patients typically need two or three treatments spaced 4 to six weeks apart to obtain the best results. The treatment is tolerated well by most patients with the application of topical anesthetic cream when compared to surgical options.
Benefits of Morpheus 8 for Cellulite
The treatment produces noticeably smoother skin within a short time following treatment, with continued improvement for up to three to six months after each treatment. Additional benefits include:
- The technology is safe for all skin types from light to dark skin

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is cellulite more obvious in women than in men?
Although cellulite affects both men and women, it is more prevalent in women, which may be due to hormones and where fat is stored in the body. Women tend to have more fat with thinner skin and underlying connective tissue, whereas for men the underlying connective tissue and skin are thicker, but the fat layer is thinner. So, in women, it is easier for fat cells to protrude nective tissue that causes “cottage cheese” skin characteristic of cellulite.
What are the risks?
Morpheus 8 is an FDA-Approved treatment device. In the hands of a board-certified dermatologist, the risk is minimized. Some of the common side effects include some mild swelling and bruising, some tenderness, and slight pain, but these subside within days of receiving treatment.
