What is microneedling with radiofrequency?

When radiofrequency energy is combined with a microneedling procedure, it further stimulates the body’s natural regenerative processes, causing increased collagen production for firmer and more youthful skin. Our state-of-the-art device for microneedling with radiofrequency treatments is called the PiXel8-RF.

Who is a good candidate for this treatment?

PiXel8-RF is safe for all skin types, including darker skin tones. You may be a candidate for this minimally invasive treatment if you want to correct minor skin imperfections, such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin laxity
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Scarring

What should I expect during a microneedling with radiofrequency procedure?

Your skin is cleaned, and a topical numbing cream is applied prior to your treatment. The PiXel8-RF device is gently pressed against the skin to create many tiny puncture wounds, which triggers a natural wound healing response to stimulate collagen and elastin production. When treating scarring, the needling procedure helps break down scar tissue. Flow needles are used to deliver radiofrequency energy into the dermis (the deeper layer of skin), which heats the dermis to tighten tissues and encourage collagen growth. 

What is the recovery time after microneedling with radiofrequency?

There is minimal to no downtime after a PiXel8-RF treatment. You may experience mild redness and swelling after the procedure, as well as some dryness and mild flaking. It may take a week for the redness to dissipate completely, so plan ahead for any special events.
