Why choose Dr. Hyman?

Double-board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joshua Hyman is trained and experienced in a range of surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures, including Morpheus8. His knowledge and two-plus decades in the field of cosmetic enhancement allow him to select the safest and most effective option to achieve your treatment goals.

His boutique center is state-of-the-art and holds a perfect safety record. Dr. Hyman performs all non-surgical treatments himself. There are no “injectors” or estheticians performing such procedures as Dr. Hyman believes his patients deserve his direct involvement in all aspects of their treatment. 

What Is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is an advanced microneedling treatment that can recontour your face/neck and body by tightening the skin and reducing the presence of fat. The powerful subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) used in the procedure targets the deep layers of your skin and fat tissue.

This component, along with the incorporation of radiofrequency (RF), is what separates Morpheus8 from other microneedling treatments. No other non-surgical procedure can morph subdermal fat to reshape your facial and body contours.

What concerns can Morpheus8 treat?

Morpheus8 can treat a variety of skin conditions on the face and body.

It is mostly used on the face and neck, as these areas are prone to many signs of aging. Morpheus8 is safe and effective for any skin tone and can improve the appearance of:

  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Sagging skin
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Uneven skin tone

Am I a candidate for Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is an excellent option for patients who want a significant reduction of wrinkles, creases, and other signs of aging without surgical intervention. If your cosmetic concerns are mild to moderate, or if you previously had a surgical cosmetic enhancement but have recurrent wrinkling, creasing, or skin laxity, Morpheus8 can work wonders. Dr. Hyman conducts a thorough assessment of your anatomy, medical history, and desired results to determine if you are a good candidate for Morpheus8. Morpheus8 is safe for most patients, but in cases of more extensive excess skin or fat deposits, Dr. Hyman may recommend facial plastic surgery, liposuction, or combining your Morpheus8 treatment with additional procedures.

How Morpheus8 works

Morpheus8 utilizes fractional radiofrequency (RF) microneedling to tighten your skin and recontour the treated site. In other words, Morpheus combines multiple effective approaches to skin rejuvenation:

Radiofrequency (RF)

RF delivers heat to your skin. The targeted heat triggers a healing response from your body that includes the production of elastin, collagen, and blood vessels. The skin tightens, and tone improves as a result.


Microneedling involves the use of small needles to make tiny punctures in your skin. The body responds by directing growth factors to the site, resulting in increased production of collagen and elastin in the treated area, which revitalizes your skin.

Because the Morpheus8 SARD device can penetrate deeply, it affects both skin and fat at the treated sites. Further, the RF component tightens skin, and the fractional treatment approach means that the device can be applied to a fraction of the surface area to achieve comprehensive results. This condenses treatment time into a 30-to-60-minute appointment, and it shortens recovery time. Typically, Dr. Hyman will recommend 4 treatment sessions spaced 4 weeks apart.
