RF microneedling is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that dramatically tightens and smooths the skin by delivering radiofrequency energy deep into the skin via tiny microneedles. The Pixel-8 procedure improves the texture and laxity of your skin immediately and it continues to improve over time. Scars and stretch marks fade, as it benefits the skin, both structurally and superficially. Due to aging and sun damage, the production of collagen and proteins in our body begin to slow down. RF Microneedling works by creating microdamage to the skin, provoking a wound-healing response which helps to rebuild the missing collagen and proteins.
Who Is a Good Candidate for RF Microneedling?
Everyone who wants to improve wrinkles, scarring, cellulite, skin laxity or elasticity can benefit from the Pixel-8. It is essentially “colorblind”, meaning it can be used on all skin types and tones! It’s safer than skin resurfacing treatments that remove the outer layers of the epidermis, since it targets the skin’s deeper layers, avoiding surface damage.
What Can You Expect After a Pixel-8 RF Microneedling Treatment?
There is NO downtime after a Pixel-8 procedure. Redness may occur for up to 3-4 hours and there might be a little pinpoint bleeding, flushing, or slight swelling—all part of the expected inflammatory response to the micro injuries.
