How does The Pixel RF Work?

The Pixel RF microneedling device works by effectively heating the skin using controlled and focused radiofrequency energy, directed onto the skin.

It differs from other similar machines in the way that it causes minimal damage and less disturbance to the skin’s outer layer and thus boasts a faster healing time.

Pixel RF causes micro-damage to the lower layers of the skin in order for the skin to heal this damage. The process is designed to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. The benefit of the newly created collagen and elastin is a smoothing and tightening effect of the skin. This effect is known as the wound healing response.

The Pixel RF is suitable for more delicate areas of the face where lasers may not be suitable, for example, the areas around the eyes. The Pixel RF is safe for use on all skin types.

Benefits of Pixel RF

The Procedure of Pixel RF Microneedling

Pre-Treatment Care

Before undergoing Pixel RF Microneedling, it’s crucial to prepare your skin. Avoid direct sun exposure and refrain from using any retinoid-based products for at least a week prior. Ensure your skin is clean and free from any makeup or lotions on the day of the treatment.

Step-by-Step Guide to the Procedure

  • Initial Consultation: A thorough skin assessment is conducted to tailor the treatment to your specific needs.
  • Skin Preparation: The targeted area is cleansed, and a numbing cream is applied to minimise discomfort.
  • Treatment Application: The Pixel RF device gently moves across the skin, emitting radiofrequency energy through micro-needles. This process creates micro-injuries, stimulating the skin’s natural healing process.
  • Duration: The entire session typically lasts about an hour, depending on the treatment area.

Post-Treatment Care and Recovery

After the treatment, you may experience mild redness and swelling, which typically subsides within a few days. Use a gentle cleanser and hydrating products, and avoid direct sun exposure. Most importantly, follow any specific aftercare instructions provided by your clinician.

Pixel RF Frequently Asked Questions

During your consultation with us, we’ll answer any questions or concerns you may have but if you have any questions about this or any of our other treatments please feel free to get in touch with us.

Very short bursts of RF energy are directed at the skin. Numbing cream may be applied. The machine’s handpiece is rolled across the skin in a crisscross motion whilst delivering short pulses of energy. It performs what is known as ‘controlled injury’.
During the treatment your skin may feel warm and you may experience a small amount of discomfort. Mild swelling similar to sunburn may be observed. This will vary from patient to patient. Those with sensitive skin may notice redness more.

Visible changes in the skin develop after the Pixel RF treatment and will be showing in approximately 3-4 months. Improvements will start to show within a few days of the treatment and increase over the following weeks as collagen continues to form. Results of the treatment will improve as collagen production continues over time.

Depending on your requirements and the area to be treated you can be in and out of the clinic in as little as 30 minutes.

The Pixel RF is commonly used on the facial area but it can also be used to treat skin imperfections in other areas of the body, including the neck and chest areas.
