PiXel8-RF: Microneedling Meets Radiofrequency Tightening
Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening technology meets microneedling skin rejuvenation in the new RF microneedling PiXel8-RF system, now available at Ultra Smooth Skin in Scottsdale, Arizona. The microneedling system included in this procedure allows for deeper penetration of RF energy, delivering its skin tightening benefits to three layers of skin: epidermis, dermis, and sub-dermis. Anti-aging and rejuvenation benefits are more dramatic than with RF or microneedling alone.
How Does RF Microneedling Work?
RF Microneedling combines radiofrequency skin tightening technology with microneedling treatments. Micro-needles penetrate the skin to deliver RF energy deep into three dermal layers, stimulating collagen and elastin regeneration. The micro-injuries stimulate collagen production and the body's natural healing processes, reducing the appearance of scars, fine lines, and uneven skin tone. The RF energy also stimulates collagen while lifting and tightening the skin.

Your consultation is our “getting to know you” session where we discuss your skincare goals and collect important information about your health and medical history. Using this information, we will decide if RF Microneedling is right for your needs. Note that even if RF Microneedling isn't right for you, another one of our many nonsurgical anti-aging procedures may be a better fit.
After we apply a topical numbing cream, we will use our PiXel8-RF wand to deliver the RF energy deep into the three layers of skin. In addition to the numbing, we will also use the Arctic Chiller; this device cools your skin, making the entire procedure more comfortable. The treatment itself takes 20-30 minutes; with pre-procedure numbing and aftercare, the entire visit will take about 1 hour.
RF Microneedling Expected Results and Follow-up
PiXel8-RF patients can expect minimal downtime. Facial redness, some tenderness, minor swelling and bruising, and skin shedding are the most common after-effects of RF microneedling. The microneedling portion stimulates skin cell turnover, which causes the skin to peel and flake. This only lasts 1-3 days. The other side-effects will subside during that time as well. Your skin may feel like you have a mild sunburn.

How is PiXel8-RF different?
Traditional radiofrequency (RF) treatments, such as Thermage, provide patients with amazing skin tightening results. It's good for virtually any area on the body. The RF energy is delivered via a handheld wand that is applied topically. The energy penetrates through the top layer of skin without any physical penetration.
Traditional microneedling creates micro-injuries to the skin, stimulating the body's natural healing processes. It jumpstarts the production of collagen and elastin, smoothing skin tone and texture. Skin nourishing ingredients also more deeply penetrate the skin via microneedling, improving results of those skin care products. Acne scars, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and other imperfections can be treated using a series of microneedling treatments.
