How Exactly Does PiXel8-RF Operate?
If you’re contemplating getting PiXel8-RF, then you should make sure that you understand how the technology works. This treatment utilizes bipolar energy, putting heat far down into the layers of the epidermis. The aim behind this is to boost and revamp collagen and bring on the regeneration of the vital elastin cells. All of this can pave the way for a complexion that’s a lot softer and more resilient. If you want the surface of your skin to be a lot smoother and firmer, then getting this treatment may be just right for you.
PiXel8-RF causes hemostasis and coagulation, which activates the manufacturing of collagen, to help make the skin firmer. Doctors can tweak the depth of the microneedles for all specific treatment parts. This can come in particularly handy for patients who need treatment below their eyes, on their cheeks, and on their foreheads.

Sessions generally last up to 20 minutes, based on the area being treated. For patients requiring more intensive sessions, the duration of a session may run from 30 minutes to 1 hour long. Most patients will begin to see improvement after a single session, however, to complete your aesthetic goals, it is recommended that patients do upwards of three sessions. It is also recommended to come in for touch-ups, once every year.
Recovering from a PiXel8-RF Treatment
Most patients report redness and minor swelling in the treated areas. However, this should clear up within 24 hours. However, this can vary if the patient has had more extensive treatments done on them. After a day, patients should be able to apply makeup, if needed.

Is RF Microneedling painful?
No, the PiXel8-RF micro-needling is not painful. As patients have indicated, there are some small discomforts involved in the treatment, but with the application of topical anesthetics and the additional use of cool air, ventilation provides comfort during a session.
Can it be used on all skin types?
Yes. Compared to other laser treatments, the PiXel8-RF utilizes only radiofrequency energy. The microneedles are designed to precisely deliver the pulse towards the dermis tissues. Visually, there is no thermal damage made to the epidermis, and almost removes completely any risks of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation on dark skin types.
Is there downtime after the procedure?
Patients should expect minimal to almost no downtime and a few restrictions required after the following radio micro-needling treatment. The area treated may become red within 24 hours. However, a much more aggressive treatment, depending on the desired outcome, will increase downtime.
How many treatments will I need?
Obvious results are visually seen after just one treatment. However, it is suggested to go through a series of 3 treatments for optimal results. Each treatment is made within a span of 4 weeks apart.
Is PiXel8-RF considered safe?
Yes. Humans are exposed to low levels of man-made radio frequencies on a daily basis. Devices such as TV, WiFi, and phones are one of the many examples of frequencies people can be exposed to. Studies have shown possible known risks with RF are the potential burns made from thermal heating effects for people under the influence of high doses. However, the PiXel8-RF procedure uses a minimal amount of RF required from trained skincare specialists in order to ensure the best results possible on your behalf.
