What Is Pixel8-RF?

PIXel8-RF is a minimally invasive fractional, bi-polar, radio frequency system that will disperse microneedles deep within the dermis to produce dramatic skin tightening and rejuvenation - on all areas of the body.  There is minimal downtime and minimal pain - regardless of skin type.

How does it restore youthful looking skin?

The PIXel8-RF provides precise and controlled coagulation and hemostasis deep within the deris to help stimulate collagen, providing dramatic skin tightening and skin rejuvenation. The micro-needle depth can be adjusted for each treatment area. This allows for customized treatments to delicate areas, such as under the eyes, the forehead, and cheek bones.

What kind of skin conditions can be treated? Is there downtime?

The PIXel8-RF can be used for a wide array of dermatological procedures including: 

  • Skin Tightening

  • Wrinkle Reduction
  • Acne Scar Improvement
  • Skin Tone & Texture Improvement
  • Pore Reduction
  • Scar Reduction
  • Stretch Mark Reduction
  • Double Chin Reduction
  • Jowl Lifting
  • Eye Brow Lifting
  • Neck Lifting
  • Hand Rejuvenation


Patients usually experience minimal to no downtime and have few restrictions following a RF micro-needling treatment. The treated area may be red for up to 24 hours. If a more aggressive or deeper treatment is required for your condition, there may be an increase in downtime. Your treatment specialist will discuss this with you.

Can this be used on all types of skin?

Yes, unlike laser treatments, the PIXel8-RF uses only radio frequency energy. The micro needles precisely deliver the RF energy into the dermis tissue. There is virtually no theremal damage to the epidermis and almost elminates the risk of PIH in darker skin types. It is safe to use on all skin types and all skin colors.

How long does this treatment take? Is this treatment permanent?

The procedure itself takes approximately 20 minutes. The treated area will need to be prepared which may take an additional 30 minutes. Results are seen after just one treatment. However, to help achieve the maximum benefit a three-treatment series is suggested with each treatment four weeks apart.
