How Does Morpheus8 Tighten Skin and How Long Does It Last? Tysons, VA

Morpheus8 is a new way to tighten and rejuvenate the skin. It uses radiofrequency energy and microneedling to make the skin firmer and smoother. The treatment is gaining popularity because of its non-invasive nature, minimal downtime and long-lasting results.

How Does Morpheus8 Work?

Morpheus8 uses a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency energy to get the body to make more collagen, which is needed to tighten the skin and make it look younger. The treatment involves the insertion of tiny needles into the skin, which deliver radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of the tissues. The energy heats the tissue, which starts the body’s natural healing process and makes the body generate more collagen. Microneedling also creates micro-injuries in the skin, further stimulating collagen and elastin production.

Morpheus8 can be customized to target different body areas, including the face, neck, arms, abdomen and thighs. The treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and can treat various skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, acne scars and uneven skin tone.

How Long Does Morpheus8 Last?

The effects of Morpheus8 can last up to two years, depending on the individual’s skin condition and lifestyle habits. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and skincare routine is essential to ensuring lasting results. In addition, patients should avoid excessive sun exposure, smoking and other factors that can damage the skin and reduce the effectiveness of the treatment.

Morpheus8 is not a one-time treatment; multiple sessions may be required to achieve optimal results. How many are needed depends on the individual’s skin condition and treatment goals. However, most people need 3–4 sessions, each about 4–6 weeks apart, to noticeably improve the texture and firmness of their skin.

Benefits of Morpheus8

Morpheus8 offers several benefits over traditional skin tightening treatments, including:

  • Non-invasive: Morpheus8 is a non-invasive treatment that does not require incisions or surgery, reducing the risk of complications and minimizing downtime.
  • Customizable: The treatment can be customized to target specific areas of the body and skin concerns, ensuring optimal results.
  • Minimal Downtime: Patients can return to their everyday lives immediately after treatment because there is little to no downtime.
  • Long-lasting Results: Morpheus8 stimulates collagen production, lasting up to two years, providing long-lasting results.

Dr Maia truly loves what she does. She is invested in making you the version of yourself you want to be. She listens attentively to what you want and makes relevant suggestions. She did not try to introduce anything unnecessary into my treatment plan. The results I achieved during my first treatment keeps me coming back. Her staff is excellent and works to accommodate your schedule. I have recommended Dr. Maia several times and each time I get the same positive feedback.

Selecting a surgeon: After having two children and weight fluctuations over the years I was left with complete loss of volume in my breasts. I had four consultations with other surgeons but after comparing their photos to Dr Maia’s and meeting her in person, I knew she was my doctor. We talked about my lifestyle - being a mom and a professional, I didn’t want to be too big, but I’m curvy so I didn’t want to go too small for my frame either. She let me try on sizes and once I selected she agreed it was a good fit for my frame. Post op recovery: I was a smoker and had quit prior to surgery but she was very honest and adamant in telling me how important it was that I did not smoke. (I honestly needed the lecture and the transparency about what could happen if I did start smoking before surgery and post-op.) Because I was formerly a pretty heavy smoker, it did cause some issues after surgery with wound closing and she was SO diligent and on top of it seeing me once and week and squeezing me in for appointments between surgeries and patients. She prescribed different things to address the would closure issues before they really became a problem. Being able to have text message access to the office was great when I had questions and she even accommodated my schedule when I couldn’t be seen in person to send progress photos so that she could check on me. 3 months post op: I’m so happy with the results of my surgery and am so glad I waited to find the right doctor. She’s an artist! They look natural, fit my body shape and they haven’t even fully “dropped and fluffed” yet. Would highly recommend… comparing her patient photos to other surgeons will end your search. I feel so much better in my body thanks to Dr Maia.

This is my second time at Dr. Maia’s office and I am so pleased with my experience here. The staff is so friendly and caring. Dr. Maia is the best Dr in the DMV area, she knows exactly what she is doing and you will be happy with the results! I am so glad I found her! I recommend anyone who’s looking for a very personable doctor to come and see her! Thank you Dr. Maia & staff!

I’m not sure where to begin when attempting to explain the positive experience I had with Dr. Maia and her team. It was important for me to find a woman doctor and she comes with so much experience, an eye for detail and aesthetically on point! I felt so well taken care of, even after 2 months post op they still make me feel taken care of. Not only am I thrilled about the physical results, I am also blown away by their care and follow through. I follow Dr.Maia in IG and literally obsessed with her work!


Dr. Maia is truly amazing! She is an artist and somewhat of a magician! She takes the time to listen to you and walk you through the procedure every step of the way! I even texted after with questions and she and her team were very responsive! I was extremely impressed with the work she did around my eyes. Several people now tell me my 20 year old daughter looks just like me….I never heard that prior to the procedure!

I had one of the most pleasant healthcare experiences I’ve ever had in my life! I came in for excessive underarm sweating and Dr. Maia recommended Botox. She carefully explained everything to me, which I really appreciated as it was my first time ever getting Botox treatment. Her medical assistants were very attentive to my additional questions and made me feel very comfortable while prepping for the treatment. Dr. Maia took her time with me, none of the 5-minute appointments you often get with doctors these days. Everyone was very welcoming and the office is bright and clean. Dr. Maia was referred to me by a family meme we and I’m so glad I went to see her. I absolutely recommend Dr. Maia to anyone and I plan to come back for additional future treatments.

I had a tummy tuck, lipo, and a prominent osteoma removed from my forehead. Although I was nervous about the procedures, Dr. Maia and her staff put my fears to rest. Even after the surgery, her professional staff called to check on me during my recovery, which helped put me mind at ease. Dr. Maia and her staff were always professional, responsive, and listened when I had concerns. After the procedures, I was back at work two weeks later and could not be happier with my results. I had a great experience and Dr. Maia will be my first call for any other procedures.

Dr. Maia is great! She is very knowledgeable! I recommend her to anyone looking to do a cosmetic procedure, breast augmentation, facial lift, etc. Look her up on Instagram so you can see the amazing results from some of her patients!!!!
