What Is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 uses radiofrequency and microneedling to remodel the skin on the face, neck, and chest. The treatment delivers radiofrequency energy deep into the skin which, along with the microneedles, generates heat and triggers the body’s natural healing process which stimulates collagen production. The treatment works on all skin tones and skin types and the Morpheus8 device can be adjusted to deliver the treatment that’s right for you and your needs.


“Overall, I would highly recommend Dana to anyone seeking a nurse injector. Her professionalism, knowledge, and compassionate care are truly exceptional, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her.”

  • Treatment can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the treatment area and if you’re having multiple areas addressed.
