Microneedling with radiofrequency is a minimally invasive treatment to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scarring, and sagging skin. The addition of radiofrequency energy to the microneedling procedure helps to further stimulate skin regeneration by boosting the body’s natural collagen + elastin levels, revealing a firmer, smoother, and more consistent skin surface for a tightened, youthful, rejuvenated look.

Pixel8 Reverses Aging by Boosting Collagen + Elastin to Regenerate, Rejuvenate & Tighten Aging Skin

Pixel8 Microneedling with radiofrequency uses the added technology of flow needles to deliver RF energy into the dermis. The RF energy heats the dermis which not only encourages collagen growth but tissue tightening as well. The penetration of the microneedles into the skin leads to a release of growth factors and triggers the wound healing cascade, encouraging collagen production which leads to younger looking skin.

Micro-needling creates little channels in the skin and those little channels stimulate collagen formation to tighten. Radio Frequency delivers energy to the skin that will cause it to tighten. This device combines both, boosting collagen formation + making skin look tighter and younger for years.

By combining micro-needling + radiofrequency, Pixel8 delivers beautiful anti-aging + skin tightening results beyond what's possible with either treatment alone. The radiofrequency enhances skin tightness, while the microneedling reduces fine lines and wrinkles.

Answers to Common Questions About Pixel8-RF

What is Pixel8-RF?

Pixel8-RF is an innovative technology that combines radiofrequency (the “RF” in Pixel8-RF) waves with micro-needling. These combined technologies truly make Pixel8-RF an innovative treatment tool to address skin laxity and textural changes in the skin.

Is there any associated downtime or recovery?

This non-invasive treatment technique allows people to receive comfortable and quick treatments, then return to their daily routine right away with zero-downtime. Most importantly, compared with other technologies that may allow us to achieve similar results, Pixel8-RF is much more comfortable for patients, and the entire process is completed in less time.

What makes it better than normal microneedling or RF treatments?

By combining two types of treatment, micro-needling and radiofrequency waves, the Pixel8-RF device delivers beautiful results for more challenging cases than can be addressed with just one or the other of these technologies alone. The radiofrequency is especially helpful for skin tightening, while the microneedling aspect helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What makes Pixel8-RF a "precision" treatment?

The Pixel8-RF hand tool really differentiates this technology from others like it. Specifically, the distance between the micro-needles makes it possible for the provider to target small areas or sensitive parts of the body with higher levels of precision and offer more uniform delivery of radiofrequency waves across the treatment area.

What services do dermatologists perform using Pixel8-RF?

The distance between the micro-needles makes it possible for the dermatologist to offer more uniform delivery of radiofrequency waves across the treatment area, and into the deeper layers of the skin for better results than have been possible with similar technologies. Because of this precise application and unique blend of technologies, the Pixel8-RF is effective for a range of dermatologic functions, including:

  • Firming skin on the face or body
  • Diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reducing the appearance of scars (acne or injury-related)
  • Improving the overall appearance and texture of the skin
  • Tightening sagging skin on the face and neck
  • Minimizing the size of pores
  • Lifting droopy skin around the eyes (eyebrow or eyelid)
  • Restoring more youthful appearance to hands

Am I a Candidate for Pixel8-RF?

Most patients who are interested in tightening and improving the appearance of their skin will be good candidates for treatment using the Pixel8 RF. One of the best things about Pixel8-RF is that it’s safe for use in all skin types. Not only is the Pixel8-RF effective on just about any skin type, but it is also able to significantly reduce the risk of side effects like hyperpigmentation that are very common for people with darker skin tones after they receive laser treatments and treatment with other energy-based devices.

How does the Pixel8-RF Device work, exactly?

As we’ve said above, the Pixel8-RF is unique because it uses both radiofrequency and micro-needling technologies. Micro-needling is a treatment that creates tiny perforations in the skin to stimulate the body’s production of new collagen at the superficial levels. Radiofrequency technologies have been used to deliver energy to the deeper layers of the skin in order to stimulate the production of collagen. The combination of these modalities ensures patients see improvement in the surface lines and wrinkles on their skin, as well as in their skin laxity.

Is the Pixel8-RF treatment customizable to my skin type + concerns?

The unique Pixel8-RF system makes it easy for the dermatologist to manage the depth of the needles, precisely plan the treatment area, customize the level of radiofrequency pulses, and more. In short, every Pixel8-RF treatment is 100% personalized for the individual patient. Because we can so carefully plan and monitor treatment, the procedure is much more precise and we can use Pixel8-RF on very sensitive areas like the skin around the eyes and nose.

Do I need to do anything to prepare for my Pixel8-RF treatment?

The Pixel8-RF device is versatile and provides effective treatment for almost any person looking to improve some aspect of their skin’s appearance. To ensure Pixel8-RF is the best option, we ask patients to visit us for a consultation appointment. During this introductory appointment, we’ll ask a series of questions, and if we decide to move forward with a Pixel8-RF session, you’ll receive specific instructions for your individual treatment plan.

What should I expect during my Pixel8-RF treatment session(s)?

On average, we recommend patients have 3-4 treatments to achieve their desired aesthetic results. These treatments are typically performed anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks apart. During each visit, you will arrive one hour early to have numbing cream placed on the areas of treatment. After an hour, your skin will be cleansed and prepared for the procedure. The procedure itself takes anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes depending on the treatment area. The depth of the needles is controlled by your dermatologist throughout the process. Once we’ve placed the micro-needles, the radiofrequency pulses are passed through them. The tiny perforations in the skin prompt the body to start healing itself and producing collagen and elastin that leads to skin that is full, youthful, and taut.

What should I expect after Pixel8-RF treatment?

After your Pixel8-RF session, you may notice some redness, swelling, and inflammation in the treatment area. These symptoms should diminish within 24-48 hours of treatment, and in most cases, all side effects will have resolved themselves within a week. For the first day after your procedure, you should forego the use of all cosmetics and skincare products apart from a very mild cleanser and application of a healing ointment. You also should protect the treated area from sunlight for the first few days.

Will I see results right away?

In short, no. But what makes Pixel8-RF great is that it’s positive effects magnify with time and last much longer than other aesthetic procedures. Why? The process of collagen regeneration will occur over several months that follow your treatment series. Because the results can take several months to appear, we usually recommend waiting six to eight weeks between each session before we schedule another treatment visit.

Do I need more than one Pixel8-RF session?

The number of treatments each patient will need to achieve their desired outcome with vary and will be determined with your dermatologist.

Are the results of treatment permanent?

Each person’s results will vary based on their age, skin health, daily UV (sun) exposure, and habits like smoking and excessive drinking, but the increased collagen and elastin production can last for years for many people. That said, patients will continue to lose collagen with the natural aging process. Our MD usually recommends re-treatment every few months combined with a good daily skincare routine to maintain the results as long as possible.
