Microneedling Treatment in Jacksonville
Introducing The PiXel8-RF
Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling is a non-surgical procedure with minimal downtime and uses the technology of microneedles as well as radiofrequency to tighten the skin and minimize the appearance of texture changes, wrinkles, scars and enlarged pores.
What Can I Expect During RF Microneedling Treatment?
During treatment, patients feel mild discomfort. A jet of cool air is applied to the face. Topical numbing cream can be used if desired to decrease any discomfort.
What Can You Expect After Treatment?
After RF microneedling most patients can expect minimal downtime. Redness, occasional swelling and mild crusting from pinpoint bleeding are common. Normal skin care and make-up can usually be applied 24-48 hours after the procedure.
How Does Radiofrequency Microneedling Work?
The PiXel8-RF uses bi-polar, radiofrequency energy alongside with micro-needles to achieve effective, non-surgical, skin tightening. During treatment, microneedles allow heat to penetrate into the lower levels of the skin, stimulating and remodeling collagen and elastin which have been degraded over time by the sun or by trauma. This results in a firmer, smoother, and more consistent skin surface, helping combat the signs of aging.
The PiXel8-RF is suited for all skin types. The micro-needles can be adjusted in depth to address each patient’s individual needs. The PiXel8-RF can help patients in the treatment of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and stretch marks. Patients can see a difference in the tightness, suppleness and overall appearance of their skin in as little as one treatment.

How Does SkinPen Microneedling Work?
SkinPen uses precisely-spaced micro-needles to create invisible perforations which causes your skin to activate its wound-repair process. The first phase of repair is Inflammation – your immune system activates to repair the micro-wounds, increases blood flow to the area, and begins creating new tissue. Phase 2 is Proliferation – the micro-wounds are rebuilt with new cells and a new network of blood vessels is developed. The final phase is Remodeling – the treated area is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
With SkinPen Microneedling your skin will become firmer and will regain elasticity. Pores, fine lines, and wrinkles are visibly reduced, circulation is stimulated and the overall health of your skin improves.
