About Morpheus Body
Morpheus Body is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that combines radiofrequency (RF) with microneedling. Microneedling creates microinjuries on the targeted skin area that trigger the body’s natural healing processes. As the body heals from these microinjuries elastin and collagen production in the dermis is increased therefore creating smoother, firmer, more youthful skin. When the needles penetrate the skin, they also emit heat from radiofrequency waves. This heat penetrates deeper skin layers to tighten underlying fat and skin. The result from the combination of microneedling and radiofrequency is smoother, tighter, more even skin.
"I went to Dr. Levesque for some liposuction on the hard to lose areas of my thighs and flanks. He made sure my expectations were realistic and exactly what he could and couldn't do. He was very detailed in describing the procedure and very patient with questions. It is very obvious he truly cares about his patients and won't just do any procedure a patient wants, but will do what he can to ensure the patient will be happy with the results. For example, I wanted lipo on my rear end. Alot of it. He told me that if he did too much, I would get saggy and explained clearly why what I wanted wasn't a good idea. Other plastic surgeons might have just done it anyway. I felt extremely comfortable with him and trusted him completely. I'm very glad I did! I am extremely happy with my results and would never hesitate to do another procedure with him."- J.H. / Google / May 10, 2019

"Far Exceeded Expectations - The scars are healing fine and natural looking - After meeting with several top rated plastic surgeons in Austin, I found Dr. Levesque. He was the only one willing to do a Deep plane facelift under local anesthesia, right in his office. This, along with his entire practice/staff, level of professionalism and explanation, etc., gave me complete confidence in having him do the procedure. I was still nervous going into procedure day, but truly, I am still amazed that I literally walked out of there looking like nothing had happened (well, other than the stitches under the bandages, ha!) and feeling fine. I walked the dog when I got home, and was able to shower and wash my hair the next day. I will try to post some photos that show the minimal amount of bruising. The truth is, I could have gone most anywhere and with only swelling, only someone who knew me would have wondered if I'd had a procedure done, and this from day 1!!! I guess that using local involves being given something that minimizes blood circulation in the area during the procedure, so there was just almost no bruising. It has been 2.5 months since the surgery. The scars are healing fine. I still have a bit of tightness in my right neck and some numbness on sides of my face and around ears, but that's about it. The really cool thing is that it is just so natural looking."- N. / RealSelf / Mar 14, 2023
"Lipo Arms, Upper back, bra rolls, upper chest,abdomen,inner thighs - I've had some lipo done before which had a positive impact on my actual body shape( lower ab/ flanks). I lose and gain weight often due to depression so i've been working on it. This time, when I gained weight it looks went to my upper body is a serious way. Also i've gained visceral fat in my upper abdomen that can only be reduced by diet and exercise, so that's my current task . In the meantime , i've grown tired or this heavier weight up top so i've been researching doctors for a few months around Texas. I also had consults with surgeons in Atlanta and Miami . I was attracted to those flashier doctors at first because they do really aggressive lipo and I feel like I need aggressive especially since i've had some lipo before. That means there will be scar tissue in some areas that will be tougher to maneuver. I'm not interested in a BBL or fat transfer. I'm never going to be a skinny person nor am I gym rat often enough to build and maintain a 6 pack and perfect toned arms and legs. I'm not saying it's impossible but it is improbable. I'm realistic about my expectations with lipo so I know that once this procedure is done , i still have work to do in order to get the upper abs to flatten. In any case , I decided against the Miami doctors because I saw a lot of stories online about women dying on the operating table from various missteps of the surgeons. Of course I know not all Miami doctors are bad but I saw enough. The Miami price are very cheap and tempting. I saw a lot of reviews about women saying they felt like they were in an assembly line and the doctors just rush and bring people in and out. I wanted to save money but not for that much additional risk . Elective surgery is a risk all together-but why add on more risk unnecessarily. So I started to look at smaller boutique surgery centers and found several in my own city which is Austin Texas. From start to finish I had 8 consults. I decided on Dr. Levesque here in Austin and he has a fairly small operation with privileges at a local surgery center. He offers liposuction under general or local- depending on how much work you want and if you want to be fully under . I felt a great vibe from the staff and the prices were fair and I was able to choose general because I didn't want local based on a prior scary experience with a bad doctor. I know i'm the type who needs to just be put under. Of course there are extra costs to go to the surgery center and for an anesthesiologist. Small price to pay for my sanity and surgeons can be more aggressive while you're under and the results tend to be better . The downside( in my opinion) is that the recovery is harder when you go under general because the doctor can just go to town on you pretty forcefully so you're sore. My surgery is tomorrow- May 15th. I'm nervous but I've been in this process before so i'm fully prepared , lol or I think I am. I'm getting lipo to my back, arms, bra roll, inner thighs and some touch up on the abs."- T. / RealSelf / May 15, 2020
"What a joy to work with Helen Klingensmith! Helen has been my preferred provider for Dysport for many years and I’m so pleased to be connected with her through Levesque Plastic Surgery. Her bedside manner is unprecedented...she is very thorough and always explains what to expect and is very compassionate. Her technique is unrivaled — I have NEVER even had so much as a pinpoint bruise. I highly respect Helen and recommend her without hesitation."- G.R. / Google / Jul 12, 2019

Morpheus Body What to Expect
The first step a candidate for Morpheus Body will have a consultation appointment. Once a patient is determined to be a good candidate for treatment, we will book a treatment appointment. At your treatment appointment the first step will be cleansing the treatment area and application of numbing cream 45 minutes before treatment. The handheld device is placed on the treatment area and the device is discharged releasing the fine needles into the skin and delivering the RF energy. Treatments can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour depending on the area being treated. After treatment micro lesions can be seen for a few days. Swelling, mild tenderness and some redness can be seen for a few days after treatment and will resolve.
Morpheus Body Post Care
Ice should NOT be applied to the treatment area immediately after treatment. Ibuprofen and Arnica should be AVOIDED as it may interfere with the natural inflammatory process that is critical for skin rejuvenation.
Patients may wash the treated area with a gentle cleanser and cool water no earlier than 8 hours after treatment. Gently pat to dry with a clean towel.
Redness after the treatment is normal and can last anywhere from 2-7 days. Peeling may occur at 3-5 days and it is important to keep the area moisturized. It is also important to not pick or scrub the area. We recommend sun protective clothing to cover the treatment area. We also recommend patients use a good broad spectrum sunscreen after the first 24 hours after treatment.
Avoid tanning and prolonged sun exposure to direct sunlight for at least 2 weeks. We recommend avoiding strenuous exercise, hot tubs, and any activities in hot steamy environments for at least 3 days.
Morpheus Body FAQs
How much does it cost?
Morpheus Body treatments start at $1600.
How does it work?
The hand held device has very small needles that when discharged penetrate the skin. The small “wounds” that are created undergo the body’s natural healing process and produce collagen and elastin. While the needles are in the skin energy is delivered in the form of radiofrequency to the underlying tissues. Morpheus Body has the ability to penetrate deeper into the sub-dermal tissues than other RF Microneedling devices that are available.
Is it safe?
Yes, Morpheus Body is a treatment that is safe for all skin types and tones. Like any other procedure there may be side effects after treatment that include redness and swelling. These side effects may last a few days, but will resolve without intervention.
When is the best age to start?
Adults between the ages of 30-55 who have mild/moderate skin laxity will see the best benefit from having Morpheus Body treatments.
How long will my results last?
Results vary depending on age, skin conditions, and lifestyle. Most patients can see results for at least a year or longer. Maintenance treatments are needed to maintain results, because despite treatment the aging process will continue.
