About RF PixEL Microneedling
Family physician Dr. Kimberly Collins utilizes radiofrequency (RF) microneedling with the Accent Prime™ system by Alma Lasers to help tighten lax skin and sooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to give the skin a more refreshed and youthful appearance. RF therapy alone has existed for many years and is well-known in the aesthetics industry for its skin tightening effects. This particular type of treatment uses controlled RF heat to stimulate the creation of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to create a firmer, smoother surface. RF Pixel and RF therapy can be used together to optimize the results. At Refresh Life Wellness in Antioch, TN, we use RF Pixel and RF therapy to produce healthier, smoother skin for men and women who would like to restore the overall texture and appearance of their complexion.
Candidates for rf PIXEL microneedling
If you are beginning to notice discoloration, smile lines, age spots, and other skin irregularities (which include age and sun exposure), RF microneedling might be the right treatment for you. RF microneedling is a great option if you want to:
- Firm the skin, producing a more refreshed appearance
- Enhance skin feel, tone, and pigment
- Heal skin irregularities such as discoloration and blood vessels
- Minimize the appearance of sun damage and age spots
- Treat acne scars and other forms of scarring
- Rejuvenate the skin for a younger, glowing look
RF PIXEL Microneedling Technique
Microneedling uses an instrument (with tiny needles on the end) that's rolled gently against the skin to puncture and create micro-injuries that "disrupt" the cells and produce collagen. Some also refer to this technique as collagen induction treatment. New skin grows as the skin heals, leaving the top layer looking and feeling brighter, smoother, and more rejuvenated. Although this procedure is often performed by itself, combining this innovative technique with radiofrequency technology has enabled us to optimize the outcomes for our patients.
The procedure is quite easy. The handheld Accent Prime device, which emits radiofrequency energy, works by providing short bursts of RF technology to the skin. The energy is transmitted via tiny needles, which simultaneously punctures the skin and circles back the electrodes to the surface of the dermis. The RF energy warms at levels that provide cumulative and ongoing results.
after your RF Pixel treatment
RF microneedling treatments will be performed in the Refresh Life Wellness office with the use of a numbing solution to help reduce discomfort. During your procedure, the handheld device will glide over the selected treatment areas, repeating the process until the desired outcome has been reached. You may experience redness or mild burning for 24 – 72 hours afterward. Results become noticeable as the skin heals over the next 3 – 4 weeks. For optimal outcomes, we usually recommend 3 – 4 treatments spaced one month apart.
If you're wanting to minimize the appearance of sun-damaged or aging skin, as well as reduce laxity, acne scars, or wrinkles, RF microneedling is a wonderful treatment with proven outcomes. Combining radiofrequency energy and microneedling, this outstanding skin rejuvenation process has risen in popularity and is a highly sought after treatment for our Antioch, TN patients.
