Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling

The PiXel8-RF uses bi-polar, radio frequency energy alongside minimally invasive micro-needles to facilitate effective, non-surgical, skin tightening with little to no downtime. 

During the treatment, heat is driven deep within the skin layers to stimulate and remodel collagen and cause elastin cells to regenerate.  

What kind of skin conditions does PiXel8-RF treat?

The PiXel8-RF can be used for a wide range of dermatological treatments which include:  

-Skin tightening

-Wrinkle reduction

-Acne scar improvement

-Skin tone and texture improvement

-Pore reduction

-Scar reduction

-Double chin reduction

-Jowl lifting

-Eyebrow lifting

-Neck lifting

-Hand rejuvenation

 

How does the treatment work?

The PiXel8-RF provides correct and controlled coagulation and hemostasis to help stimulate collagen production and provide skin tightening and rejuvenation.  The microneedle depth can be adjusted accordingly for each and every treatment area, especially for delicate areas such as under the eyes, the forehead and cheek bones.

 

Can the PiXel8-RF be used on all skin types?

The PiXel8-RF, unlike laser treatments, can definitely be used on all skin types. It only uses radio frequency energy. Thus, there is no risk of thermal damage to the epidermis and it almost eliminates the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation in darker skin types.

 

Is there downtime after the procedure?

There is usually very minimal to no downtime after the RF-microneedling procedure.  The treated area may be red for up to a full day. Your downtime may increase if the magnitude of the procedure is deeper. Be sure to ask your provider for a detailed estimate of downtime.

 

What should I expect after the PiXel8-RF treatment?

Most patients will experience some redness and some minor swelling which will typically improve within 24 hours or less.  Patients may apply makeup after the 24 hours.

 

How long does it take to perform a PiXel8-RF treatment and how many treatments will I need?

The PiXel8-RF procedure normally lasts about 20 minutes. It will take an additional 30 minutes if the treatment area needs to be prepared. Obvious results are generally seen after just one procedure. A packaged treatment of at least three is highly recommended to help you achieve maximum benefits.
