RF Microneedling

—Serving Metairie and New Orleans—


A PiXel is Worth a Thousand Words

Skin laxity happens over your whole body. You need a treatment that works wherever you have sagging skin. At A Woman Plastic Surgeon, we offer our patients in New Orleans RF microneedling as a treatment to fight sagging, tired-looking skin.

What is PiXel8-RF?

PiXel8-RF uses radiofrequency (RF) energy and microneedling to deliver collagen-boosting treatments to your skin. The PiXel8-RF system can be used almost anywhere on the body, with little-to-no downtime and minimal discomfort.

PiXel8-RF combines the latest developments in both RF and microneedling technology. Using gold-plated adjustable microneedles, PiXel8-RF creates microchannels in the skin, stimulating the body’s healing process. Bursts of RF energy at targeted locations amplify this response, further boosting the production of collagen. As the microchannels heal, the collagen created in the microneedling process smooths and tones the skin.

By delivering precise, controlled bursts of RF energy through its nearly microscopic needles at adjustable depths, PiXel8-RF provides our expert New Orleans RF Microneedling specialists with the versatility to treat multiple skin issues, even in delicate areas like beneath the eyes, forehead, and cheekbones.

What are the benefits of RF Microneedling?

RF Microneedling’s versatility and effectiveness make it an ideal treatment option for multiple skin issues, including:

  • Jowl lifting
  • Crepey neck
  • Scar reduction
  • Skin tightening
  • Wrinkle reduction
  • Double chin reduction
  • Stretch mark reduction
  • Acne scar improvement
  • Skin tone and texture improvement

RF Microneedling is non-surgical, minimally invasive, and offers benefits similar to a facelift with far less downtime. While the benefits of RF Microneedling are less dramatic than a facelift, the procedure is also far less rigorous, which makes it an excellent alternative for those who want to look their best without surgery.

RF Microneedling FAQs

Can RF Microneedling be used on all skin types?

Yes. Because PiXel8-RF uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate the skin, there is little-to-no risk of skin discoloration. PiXel8RF’s micro needles transmit RF energy into the dermis tissue beneath the surface, minimizing thermal damage. This makes RF Microneedling safe to use on all skin types and pigments, unlike certain laser treatments, which can cause discoloration or lightening of darker-pigmented skin.

How long does each RF Microneedling session usually take?

Each treatment takes roughly 20-30 minutes, including aftercare. Expect your entire session to last about an hour.

How many RF Microneedling sessions will I need?

While you should see visible improvements to the treated areas within a few weeks of your first treatment, a series of three treatments at four-week intervals provides optimal results.

Is RF Microneedling painful?

RF Microneedling treatment includes an Arctic Chiller attachment that cools and soothes the skin during treatment, making PiXel8-RF minimal in discomfort!

Your RF Microneedling Treatment

At A Woman Plastic Surgeon, Certified Laser Operator (CLO) Valerie Pendleton performs RF Microneedling procedures with precision and a focus on patient comfort.

Valerie has a decade of experience as a CLO. As a clinical trainer and consultant for Rohrer Aesthetics (makers of PiXel8-RF), Valerie demonstrates how RF Microneedling works and trains other aesthetic professionals on how to use the system. You are in good hands with Valerie. During your consultation, Valerie will go over your goals and create a treatment plan to address them. Using the RF Microneedling system, Valerie will create microchannels in each treatment area with PiXel8-RF’s gold-plated microneedles. These needles can be configured at select depths in the skin to optimize their effectiveness. As the needles create the microchannels, the system will release targeted bursts of RF energy to further stimulate the collagen production process.

The entire treatment takes about 20-30 minutes, with some brief aftercare. The procedure requires no anesthesia, so after receiving RF Microneedling New Orleans patients are free to resume their day immediately following treatment.

RF Microneedling Results

Because RF microneedling with PiXel8-RF works by generating collagen through healing, you should begin to see results in the weeks following treatment. As collagen production takes effect, you will notice visible improvements to your skin tone and texture in the treated area. These improvements actually tend to increase over the next few months.
