Cosmetic treatments have lately come so far that you can achieve total skin rejuvenation through a number of procedures. You can restore your youthful facial glow and vibrant skin without complicated surgeries, scars, irritation, or downtime. Thanks to these modern treatments, age can truly be just a number.
Pixel8 RF Microneedling at Sistine MediSpa is one of the latest and most innovative cosmetic procedures that rejuvenate your skin without an extended recovery period. The procedure leverages cutting-edge technology to deliver the twin benefits of microneedling and radiofrequency thermal energy, facilitating skin regeneration, collagen production, and skin tightening.
Introducing Pixel8 RF Microneedling
RF microneedling, aka radiofrequency microneedling, is a procedure that combines two popular skin rejuvenation techniques — radiofrequency energy and microneedling. The patient’s skin is slightly punctured with ultrafine microneedles that deliver radiofrequency energy into the deep skin tissues. Carefully controlled damage caused by the thermal energy and micro-punctures stimulates your body’s natural healing response and collagen production.
Collagen is one of the skin’s most crucial structural frameworks, responsible for its youthful, vibrant, and taut appearance. But years of natural aging, sun damage, and environmental pollutants minimize your skin’s ability to produce collagen, leading to laxity and wrinkles. RF microneedling activates your body’s natural collagen production capabilities, resulting in youthful and healthy skin. The collagen formation and regeneration processes take time, so your skin quality continues improving for several weeks.
Pixel8 is one of the latest cutting-edge technologies used for RF microneedling. Designed primarily to combat the signs of aging, Pixel8-RF is suitable for all skin types, ensures minimal side effects or discomfort, and provides optimal results. Furthermore, Pixel8 ensures greater personalization of the RF microneedling procedure than ever before, since the microneedles can be adjusted between 0.5mm up to 3.5mm to address your specific skin conditions.
