Reduce Signs of Aging and Other Skin Flaws with Morpheus8

Reduce Signs of Aging and Other Skin Flaws with Morpheus8

Good skincare routines depend on finding the right combinations of products and treatments to banish signs of aging and refresh and rejuvenate the complexion. Morpheus8® is an innovative skin care system that combines two state-of-the-art treatments — microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy — to achieve that ideal union capable of producing beautiful results.

Soheila Rostami, MD, and Joseph Davidson, MD, are dedicated to offering an array of skin care solutions at Rostami OPC to ensure every patient in Reston, Virginia, can find the treatment combination that’s right for them. Here’s how treatment with the Morpheus8 system can help you achieve the results you’re looking for.

Microneedling and RF energy: The perfect couple

To understand why Morpheus8 is so good at what it does, you first need to understand how each of its components works.


Microneedling uses a special device that’s equipped with dozens of tiny needles. As the device passes over your skin, the needles cause very tiny areas of controlled damage in your skin’s upper layers. 

When your skin senses these microscopic injuries, it ramps up its production of collagen, an important protein that plays a role in healing and in rebuilding skin damaged by years of sun exposure and age-related changes. 

As we age, natural production of collagen declines significantly, leaving us more prone to wrinkles, lines, and sagging. By increasing collagen production inside the skin’s layers, microneedling helps restore collagen and its supportive networks.

RF energy

RF energy also helps promote collagen production through application of heat energy. Like microneedling, RF energy treatments result in tiny areas of tissue injury that act to ramp up collagen production for firmer, smoother skin. 

While some systems deliver RF energy through the skin surface, Morpheus8 uses the tiny microneedles to administer heat energy to deeper skin layers where collagen is produced. In addition to stimulating more collagen, the RF component of the Morpheus8 system also remodels tissue, tightening it with gentle heat.

Morpheus8 treatment: What to expect

Morpheus8 treatment begins with application of a topical anesthetic to numb your skin so you stay comfortable. Once your skin is numb, the doctor passes the Morpheus8 device over the surface of your skin, focusing on areas of collagen damage. Each patient’s treatment is unique to their needs and treatment goals.

There’s no downtime with Morpheus8, but you can expect your skin to be reddish and tender, similar to the effects of a sunburn. After treatment, you can return to your regular activities as long as you protect your skin from the sun while it’s healing. Our team provides complete aftercare instructions to give your skin the extra TLC it needs while it rebuilds new collagen networks.

Thanks to its unique combination of technologies, Morpheus8 can be a great solution for an array of issues, like:

Better still, Morpheus8 can be repeated. In fact, many patients find they achieve the best results with a series of treatments designed for their individual goals. 

Give your skin a fresh start

Fall and winter are ideal times for skin treatments. Why? Because the days are shorter and cooler, making it easier to avoid sun exposure while your skin heals. In fact, scheduling Morpheus8 treatment now is a great way to welcome the holidays and the new year.
