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 and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
