Radiofrequency (RF Microneedling) is a cosmetic procedure. It uses tiny needles and radiofrequency waves to rejuvenate skin. The treatment is a form of controlled skin injury. The damage stimulates the growth of healthy new skin, as well as tightens the skin.
RF Microneedling combines the benefits of both microneedling and RF in one advanced treatment. The RF energy heats the underlying layers of skin, causing constriction and tightening of the skin, as well as the stimulation of collagen and elastin production through microneedling. Because the RF energy is delivered so deeply, it can produce faster results that are more dramatic.
Patients usually experience very minimally to no downtime after our PiXel8-RF Microneedling procedure. The treated area may be red, similar to a sunburn, for up to a full day, and most patients are back to their normal activities within 1-2 days.
