Pixel8-RF is a minimally invasive fractional, bi-polar, Radio Frequency system that will disperse micro-needles deep within the dermis to produce dramatic skin tightening and skin rejuvenation and can be used on all areas of the body. The Pixel8-RF combines the latest advancements in Micro-Needling and Radio Frequency (RF) technologies.

Pixel8-RF combines the benefits of radiofrequency energy and microneedling. Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a skin treatment that utilizes fine needles that create tiny injuries when they enter the skin. This takes advantage of the skin’s natural ability to repair itself by replacing damaged skin with new collagen. Radiofrequency energy applied to the surface of the skin increases the skin temperature and creates new collagen. With microneedling, radiofrequency energy is introduced within the skin from the entire length of the needle while it is in the skin, providing a deeper effect. The resulting collagen remodeling leads to the improvement of:

  • Skin Tightening
  • Wrinkle Reduction
  • Acne Scar Improvement
  • Skin Tone and Texture Improvement
  • Pore Reduction
  • Scar Reduction
  • Stretch Mark Reduction
  • Jowl Lifting
  • Eye Brow Lifting
  • Neck Tightening and Lifting
  • Hand Rejuvenation

The Pixel8-RF microneedling device is FDA-approved and employs Non-insulated needles that penetrate into the skin and deliver bi-polar radiofrequency energy from the length of the needles within the skin. The heat stimulates and remodels the collagen within the skin, resulting in the improved appearance of a variety of skin problems listed above. A significant benefit of The Pixel8-RF microneedling with little to no recovery time, making it easier to achieve improvement without much change in your routine. Another advantage is that It is suitable for all skin types. The length of the needle used, as well as the energy utilized, are adjustable and customized to the thickness of the skin being treated, providing precision. The unique “Enhanced Delay” function permits precise control and heat application, which helps reduce the chance of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Depending on the severity of the problem being treated, optimal results may require three to six sessions one month apart. Many patients report improvement after their very first session. Maximum improvement is seen in four to six months after a treatment series.

Within 24 hours, these side effects should disappear independently. In rare cases, radio frequency treatments can cause burns, but with under the care of the experienced providers at Silk: A Medical Spa, we minimize these risks in every treatment as much as possible.

How Long Do the Results from Pixel8-RF Last?

Results from treatment with the Pixel8-RF can vary from patient to patient. However, the collagen created from the treatment normally lasts the average patient around seven years. This will depend on certain factors such as your age, the amount of collagen you had prior to treatment, physical health, skin health, and lifestyle habits. ​

How Often Will I Need This Treatment?

You can undergo Pixel8-RF treatments once every four to six weeks. This is because the skin is constantly replacing itself, and exposure to environmental factors in our daily lives can change the way our skin looks within the span of a month. Spacing your Pixel8-RF sessions apart each month will allow for optimal results.
