Thermal energy is delivered deep into the dermis to stimulate collagen and essentially “shrink wrap” the lower layers of your skin which provides a tightening effect while breaking up pigment, boosting volume and brightening overall.
A topical numbing cream is applied for one hour before treatment. Clients report mild to moderate discomfort in some areas with no discomfort in others. Pixel8-RF Microneedling treatments take between 45 to 90 minutes depending on the size of the area.
In comparison to other RF Microneedling treatments, Pixel8-RF is considered to be more tolerable with significantly less downtime overall. The downtime following a Pixel8-RF Microneedling treatment will vary from client to client, with some experiencing mild to moderate redness in the days following. A grid formation may appear where the needles entered the skin which can last 1-3 days. Occasional breakouts can occur. Results begin to form in 2 weeks with final results at 6 weeks.
In the beginning we recommend 4 treatments spread 4-6 weeks apart with maintenance treatments 1-2 times a year.
Exfoliating treatments must be avoided for at least two weeks before. Discontinue retinol use for three days prior.
Avoid cleansing with hot water. No workouts for 24 hours. Makeup should not be worn during the healing process. Suncreen all day! Want to boost your results? Book a Jet Peel facial the week after and nourish those baby cells on their way up to the surface of the skin!
