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 PiXel8-RF microneedling as a treatment to fight sagging, tired-looking skin.
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.
PiXel8-RF’s versatility and effectiveness make it an ideal treatment option for multiple skin issues, including:
PiXel8-RF is non-surgical, minimally invasive, and offers benefits similar to a facelift with far less downtime. While the benefits of PiXel8-RF 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.
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 PiXel8-RF safe to use on all skin types and pigments, unlike certain laser treatments, which can cause discoloration or lightening of darker-pigmented skin.
Each treatment takes roughly 20-30 minutes, including aftercare. Expect your entire session to last about an hour.
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.
PiXel8-RF treatment includes an Arctic Chiller attachment that cools and soothes the skin during treatment, making PiXel8-RF minimal in discomfort!
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 PiXel8-RF 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 PiXel8-RF 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.
At A Woman Plastic Surgeon, we offer effective, scientifically proven treatments with a woman’s unique perspective on beauty and skincare. Our certified laser operators are experts in the field, teaching other providers how to use these revolutionary technologies. Schedule a consultation today to see how you can get the most out of your next treatment with PiXel8-RF microneedling.
Following your treatment, you may experience some mild redness in the treatment area for up to 24 hours. Patients should not use makeup for at least 24 hours on the treated area. Other than that, there are very few restrictions and no downtime following each PiXel8-RF treatment.
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.
