The latest and most innovative approach for non-surgical skin tightening. RF (radio frequency) energy alongside minimally invasive micro-needles is used to facilitate effective, skin tightening, softening of fine lines, reduce acne scars, and soften stretch marks with little downtime.
How it works:
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. There is an option to add PRP (platelet rich plasma) to your treatment for enhanced results. By using your own growth factors from PRP, healing time is accelerated and collagen remodeling is even more enhanced. A series of 3 treatments is needed for optimum results. For maintenance, 1-2 treatments per year are recommend to maintain results.
Numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area for approximately 30-45mins. Most people find the procedure very tolerable. You can expect about a week of pin point brown spots and pink skin. You’ll want to use gentle cleansers and moisturizers during your healing. We ask you to avoid exfoliating at this time, as letting them fall off naturally will avoid any complications. Prior to the treatment you will need to stop all skin care that is exfoliating such as retinol, retinA, AHA, salicylic acid, and glycolic acid for approximately one week. Pixel8 RF is safe for all skin types. Like all energy based procedures, sunburns and tanning is contraindicated during the treatment series.
Areas that can be treated:
The most common areas treated are the face and neck. However the chest, upper arms, thighs, and abdomen can also be done to tighten and smooth the skin’s surface.
PIxel8 RF can also be used to reduce underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis). A series of treatments will be completed until desired results are attained.
