In the Scottsdale-Phoenix area, microneedling using radiofrequency energy is becoming the go-to skin tightening treatment. It’s easy to understand why. Treatments with our FDA-cleared PiXel8-RF microneedling device produce dramatic results with minimal downtime. These treatments are safe and effective on the face, neck, and body.
What Does PiXel8-RF Microneedling Do?
Even though many people think of microneedling as a skin tightening treatment only, the benefits of the procedure are much more varied. It has proven effective for reducing the visual effects of aging, as well as improving the texture, smoothness, and firmness of the skin. Commonly treated concerns include:
- Thinning, laxity, and crepiness
- Stretch marks
- Acne and surgical scars
The PiXel8-RF microneedling device we use is appropriate for all skin types, and most patients notice the targeted skin is smoother and softer after a single treatment.
How Much Does RF Microneedling Cost in the Scottsdale-Phoenix Area?
One reason for the popularity of RF microneedling is that it’s a cost-effective way to address concerns when compared to laser skin resurfacing. The treatment cost varies depending on the extent of the procedure, and we provide a detailed price quote after your consultation.
A Reputation Built on Results
How Does RF Microneedling Work?
Microneedling is also called collagen induction therapy, or CIT. Collagen, along with elastin, is one of the fundamental elements of smooth, firm skin. When we’re young, the skin heals and maintains a youthful look because of collagen. As we age, the body produces less collagen, leading to the development of wrinkles. Microneedling creates tiny micro-injuries in the skin with ultrafine needles to trigger the body’s healing process and increase collagen and elastin production. PiXel8-RF microneedling delivers heat energy through the needles to affect the deeper layers of the skin. The result is firmer, smoother, more radiant skin.
Are PiXel8-RF Microneedling Treatments Right for Me?
With PiXel8-RF microneedling, the depth of the needles and amount of RF energy can be adjusted for:
- Individual patient needs
- Skin quality and thickness in each treatment area
- Desired results
What Does RF Microneedling Feel Like?
Most patients who undergo RF microneedling tolerate the procedure well. Our aesthetic nurse and esthetician, who both perform the treatment, prepare the skin with a numbing cream before beginning the procedure to ensure patients remain comfortable. During the treatment, they press the PiXel8-RF handpiece against the skin and activate quick pulses of the microneedles and radiofrequency energy to penetrate the skin. You’ll likely experience a warm, prickling sensation as the providers gently move the device across the treatment area.
Recovery After Microneedling With RF
You can expect to have some redness, minimal swelling, and sensitivity for up to 48 hours after the treatment. Application of ice packs can help with this. You can apply makeup after 24 hours. Your skin will be sensitive to the sun and harsh chemicals for a few weeks, so use sun protection and stick to gentle cleansers.
