What is RF Microneedling with PiXel8?
About Face & Body Medical Spa in Katy, TX uses radiofrequency (RF) microneedling via the innovative PiXel8 device to create an exceptional, youthful look for our patients. RF remedies have existed for a number of years and are well-known in the aesthetics industry for skin tightening. PiXel8 utilizes heat to stimulate the production of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to reveal a tighter, smoother surface. This therapy is used with microneedling to optimize results. While several RF microneedling devices are currently on the market, PiXel8 stands out thanks to its adjustable energy outputs for customized aesthetic needs and noticeable outcomes after as little as one session.

How is RF Microneedling with PiXel8 Performed?
RF microneedling with PiXel8 uses an instrument (with small needles on the end) that's rolled carefully around the skin to make tiny punctures and create micro-injuries that "interrupt" the tissues and stimulate the production of collagen. Some also refer to this technique as collagen induction therapy. New skin forms as the small punctures heal, leaving the surface feeling and looking brighter, smoother, and rejuvenated. Although this process is usually performed by itself with traditional microneedling, combining this innovative method with radiofrequency technology has enabled us to optimize outcomes for our patients in the Katy, TX area.
The process is quite simple. The applicator, which emits radiofrequency energy, works by delivering short bursts of RF energy through an array of sterilized microneedles. The energy is transmitted via the needles and can be adjusted on the PiXel8 platform by your aesthetician or practitioner. It concurrently punctures the skin and circles back the electrodes onto the surface of the skin. The RF energy heats at levels that provide cumulative and ongoing benefits.
