WHAT IS PIXEL8-RF MICRONEEDLING?
PiXel8RF Microneedling is a treatment that combines the benefits of radiofrequency energy and microneedling. Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a skin treatment which utilizes fine needles that create tiny injuries when they enter the skin. This takes advantage of the skin’s natural ability to repair itself by replacing damaged skin with new collagen. Radiofrequency energy applied to the surface of the skin increases the skin temperature which also creates new collagen. With RF microneedling, radiofrequency energy is introduced within the skin from the entire length of the needle, while it is in the skin, providing a deeper effect in the skin. The resulting collagen remodeling leads to improvement of:
- Skin looseness and sagging on the face, neck and body
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Facial acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Uneven skin tone
- Crepey skin
- Skin texture
The PiXel8-RF microneedling device is FDA-approved and employs fine gold -plated needles that penetrate into the skin and deliver bi-polar radiofrequency energy from the length of the needles within the skin. The heat stimulates and remodels the collagen within the skin, resulting in the improved appearance of a variety of skin problems listed above. A significant benefit of The PiXel8-RF microneedling with little to no recovery time, making it easier to achieve improvement without much change in your routine. Another advantage is that It is suitable for all skin types. The length of the needle used as well as the energy utilized are adjustable and customized to the thickness of the skin being treated providing precision. The unique “Enhanced Delay” function permits precise control and heat application which helps to reduce the chance post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Depending on the severity of the problem being treated, optimal results may require three to six sessions one month apart. Many patients report improvement after their very first session. Maximum improvement is seen in 4-6 months after a treatment series.
