RoseHall Medical Aesthetics offers advanced skincare solutions, including the innovative Morpheus8 treatment, for our patients in Washington, DC, and Bowie, MD. This guide explores Morpheus8, a leading technology that combines radiofrequency energy with microneedling to enhance skin rejuvenation effectively. Here, we will detail the treatment, its benefits, and why it represents a significant advancement in aesthetic treatments. Learning more about this treatment provides a foundation for those considering this option for improved skin health and appearance.

What Is RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling, which stands for radiofrequency microneedling, is a cosmetic treatment that combines the traditional microneedling technique with radiofrequency energy. Microneedling involves using fine needles to create micro-injuries on the skin’s surface, stimulating the body’s natural collagen and elastin production.

The addition of radiofrequency energy heats the deeper layers of the skin, enhancing the collagen and elastin production process. This combination can result in tighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. RF microneedling is often used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, scars, acne scars, and overall skin texture and tone.

What Is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a specific type of RF microneedling device and treatment. It’s known for its ability to penetrate deeper into the skin compared to traditional microneedling devices, reaching up to 4mm in depth. This allows for more significant remodeling of the skin and subdermal adipose tissue.

Morpheus8 is often touted for its effectiveness in tightening skin, reducing wrinkles and fine lines, improving skin texture, and contouring the face and body by targeting subdermal layers of the skin and fat. This technology can be used on various parts of the body, including the face, neck, abdomen, legs, and more, making it a versatile option for those looking to improve their skin’s appearance and reduce signs of aging.

What Should You Anticipate for Morpheus8 RF Microneedling?

When considering Morpheus8 RF microneedling, it’s essential to know what to expect before, during, and after the treatment. Here’s a comprehensive overview:

Before the Treatment


You’ll typically have a consultation with us, where we will evaluate your skin concerns, discuss your goals, and determine if Morpheus8 is suitable for you. This is the time to ask questions and discuss any concerns.

Preparation Guidelines

You may be advised to avoid certain medications or supplements that can increase bleeding, such as aspirin or fish oil, for a week or so before the treatment. It’s also important to avoid sun exposure and not apply any products to the treatment area on the day of the treatment.

During the Treatment

Comfort Measures

The treatment area will be cleaned, and a topical numbing cream will be applied to minimize discomfort. The treatment itself involves the device being pressed against the skin, with needles penetrating the skin to deliver radiofrequency energy to targeted depths.


The treatment usually takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the treatment area size. The actual application of the Morpheus8 device is relatively quick, and patients can generally return to their daily activities shortly after the treatment with minimal downtime.

After the Treatment

Immediate Aftercare

Post-treatment, you can expect some redness, swelling, and a sensation similar to a sunburn in the treated area. These symptoms are typically mild and subside within a few days.


Morpheus8 is considered a minimally invasive treatment with minimal downtime. Most people can resume their normal activities within a day or two, although it’s advised to avoid direct sun exposure and strenuous activities until the skin fully recovers.


We will recommend a post-treatment skincare routine for you. This includes avoiding direct sun exposure and using broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect the treated areas, keeping the skin clean and moisturized, and avoiding the use of makeup or other skincare products for a short period as advised. Patients are also advised to stay hydrated and avoid strenuous activities for the first 24 to 48 hours post-treatment to help the healing process.


While some immediate tightening may be noticeable, the full benefits of Morpheus8, including skin tightening, improved texture, and reduced lines and wrinkles, typically develop over the following weeks and months as collagen production increases. Optimal results are often seen after a series of treatments, as recommended by us.

How Long Does Morpheus8 Results Last?

The results from Morpheus8 can be quite durable, depending on individual factors such as skin type, age, and overall skincare routine. Generally, the effects of Morpheus8 last between one and two years. The treatment stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which are crucial for maintaining the skin’s youthful appearance. As this process unfolds over several months, patients often see improvements in skin texture and firmness continue to develop and peak around three to six months after the treatment.

To prolong the effects of Morpheus8, follow-up treatments may be recommended. Typically, maintenance sessions once a year can help sustain the results. Additionally, maintaining a good skincare regimen, including protection from sun exposure, regular moisturizing, and using products that promote collagen production, can also help extend the benefits of the treatment.
