The Pixel RF – Resurface and Tighten Skin
With age, our skin loses its natural clarity and smoothness. The tendency for brown discolorations develops and is worsened by sun exposure. Due to a reduction in collagen formation, we also develop wrinkles. All these changes are responsible for the dull, rough, dyspigmented, lax skin that causes such dismay when we look in the mirror. Some correction can be obtained with medical-grade skin care products but many times, a resurfacing procedure must be undertaken.
To the armamentarium of resurfacing procedures enters a new tool: Pixel RF. This novel RF device is minimally ablative fractional technology which uses RF (radio frequency) to create multiple controlled micro-perforations on the skin. During the procedure, just a small fraction of the skin is ablated and heated. The surrounding areas of intact skin allow for rapid healing, decreased risk of scarring and hyper-pigmentation and results in little to no downtime. The outcome is elimination of irregular pigmentation, tightening of dermal collagen and skin smoothing.
The Pixel RF hand-piece literally “rolls over your skin” releasing micro-bursts of refractive radiofrequency energy which is focused precisely where needed.
This treatment is appropriate for all skin types and can be used almost anywhere on the body: décolleté, hands and other such areas which so often manifest damage as we age.
Improves Uneven Skin Tone – Stretch Marks – Acne Scars
Pixel RF is used to treat scars, wrinkles and the almost impossible-to-treat stretch marks. It helps restore youthful skin tone, color, appearance and skin tightness. We have found it to be especially effective for acne scarring. Most recently we’ve been combining Pixel RF with PRP (Vampire Facial) to improve results even further.
More than one treatment may be required and these are spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart. Time of treatment is incredibly rapid; an entire face can be treated in about 15 minutes! Icing the area before makes treatment virtually pain-free. Patients experience about one day of redness or swelling and up to 3 days of mild exfoliation. Normal activities are usually resumed the day after treatment. It takes time for the new collagen to be remodeled, so optimal results take several months to be fully appreciated but the fresh, smooth, radiant skin is well-worth the wait!
Effective on all skin types, genders and ethnicities, Pixel RF is truly a great innovation in skin rejuvenation technology and gives us yet another welcome weapon in the battle against skin aging.

“I am very pleased with my Pixel Rf treatment and I would do it again! I can already tell a difference when I put on my liquid foundation with a brush. My skin feels tighter and smoother and the creepiness is gone.”
