Our new Pixel 8-RF device in Houston combines micro-needling with the power of radiofrequency energy to a provide a non-surgical option for skin tightening and skin remodeling. The micro-needles deliver this energy which will helps stimulate new collagen and elastin throughout the skin. This will ultimately result in firmer, smoother, and more consistent appearing skin.
The beauty in this device, as opposed to laser treatment, is that we can use it for all skin types without the risk of pigment changes and scarring. This is an in office procedure that is very tolerable with topical numbing cream. Downtime is only about 24 hours and then you can apply makeup and return to routine activities.
