RF Microneedling

What is the Pixel8-RF?

Radio Frequency (RF) Micro-needling is a non-surgical procedure with little to no down time and is now considered “the newest essential” for a successful aesthetic practice.


The PiXel8-RF uses bi-polar, RF 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. This results in a firmer, smoother, and more consistent skin surface.

 

The PiXel8-RF was developed to combat the signs of aging. The PiXel8-RF is suited for all skin types, and after a single treatment, most patients notice that the area treated is smoother and softer. The amount of energy delivered into the tissue is adjustable and the micro-needles can be adjusted from .5mm up to 3.5mm to address each individual patient’s needs. The PiXel8-RF uses a unique design for tissue coagulation and hemostasis that may improve fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and striae.

 


What our patients say:
"I recently had the micro needling done and of course I was quite nervous at the thought of tiny needles being injected into my face. However the team there was amazing and very reassuring and walk me through the entire process from start to finish. The results within two days were remarkable to me.  I wanted my pores to be much smaller so that my make up would lay better and my skin texture would improve and it absolutely delivered just that! And with no “down time”, I would totally do it again and I strongly recommend it to anyone that’s looking for a pain-free way to get smoother textures and smaller pores and that “dewey” complexion we all love. THANK YOU!!!" - Sheila M 11/8/18 


How does the treatment work?

The PiXel8-RF provides precise and controlled coagulation and hemostasis deep within the dermis to help stimulate collagen, providing dramatic skin tightening and skin rejuvenation. The micro needle depth can be adjusted for each treatment area. Thereby, allowing for customized treatments to delicate areas, such as under the eyes, the forehead and cheek bones.

 
Can it be used on all skin types?

Yes. Unlike laser treatments, the PiXel8-RF uses only radio frequency energy. The micro needles precisely deliver the RF energy into the dermis tissues. There is virtually no thermal damage to the epidermis and almost eliminates the risk of PIH (post inflammatory hyper pigmentation) in dark skin types. Therefore, it is safe to use on all skin types and all colors of skin.

 
Is there downtime after the procedure?

One of the greatest things about RF microneedling, is that patients usually experience minimal to no downtime and have few restrictions following a RF microneedling treatment. The treated area may be red for up to 24 hours.
 
However, a deeper, more aggressive treatment may be required for your desired outcome. This may increase downtime.
 

What should I expect after the treatment?

After the treatment, most patients will experience redness and some minor swelling. This usually subsides within 24 hours or less. After 24 hours, the patient may apply make-up and other skin care to the treatment area.

 
How long does a treatment take and how many treatments will I need?

The procedure itself takes approximately 20 minutes. However, the treatment area will need to be prepared which may take an additional 30 minutes. Obvious results are normally seen after just 1 treatment. However, to help achieve the maximum benefit a 3 treatment series is suggested with each treatment 4 weeks apart.
 

How long do results last?

This is a difficult question and will be different for each patient. The collagen created will last at least 7 years. However, the amount of collagen is variable and depends on the overall skin health, patient's health, smoking habits, age, tanning, sun exposure and lifestyle. It is usually recommended to have a "touch up" performed every 12-18 months.
