Believe it or not, your skin is an organ — and your largest one too! As you age, however, your skin changes in many ways. Over time, the skin naturally becomes rougher, looser, and more prone to fine lines and wrinkles. Lifestyle choices (like smoking) and excessive UV exposure can be especially tough on the skin.
If you’re ready to turn back the hands of time, skin tightening can revitalize and freshen up your appearance. Dr. Afia Naqvi offers skin tightening — including Pixel-8 skin tightening — procedures in our Kingwood, Texas spa.
Below, we introduce this innovative technology, explore what it can do, and highlight its benefits.
What is Pixel8-RF skin tightening and how does it work?
Pixel8-RF is a skin tightening procedure that combines the power of radiofrequency energy (hence the “RF” in Pixel8-RF) waves with the collagen-producing effects of microneedling. Together, radiofrequency energy and microneedling combat many cosmetic concerns, including skin laxity and textural changes (such as roughness).
Treatments are comfortable and quick, which allows you to resume your daily routine without any interruption.
More about RF and microneedling
Microneedling stimulates collagen production thanks to a series of tiny perforations into the top-most layer of your skin. These “micro-injuries” trigger your body to produce new collagen, which results in smoother skin.
Radiofrequency energy, which penetrates deeper than microneedling, delivers RF energy to the deeper layers of the skin. This also stimulates the increased production of collagen. What the combination of microneedling and RF energy does is reduce surface (superficial) lines and wrinkles while improving skin laxity.
Put your best face forward and say goodbye to problem areas
Now that we’ve covered what Pixel-8 skin tightening is and how microneedling and RF energy stimulates collagen production, let’s take a closer look at what exactly this technology can do.
You might consider Pixel8-RF if you want to:
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Diminish the appearance of scars (including acne scars)
- Improve the firmness of your skin (on your face or body)
- Improve the texture of your skin
- Tightening loose skin on your face and/or body
- Reduce the size of your pores
- Restore a more youthful appearance to your face and/or hands
As with our other skin tightening treatments, this is performed in our office.
Benefits of Pixel-8
In addition to addressing the cosmetic concerns listed above, there are many more reasons to consider this cutting-edge treatment. Treatments are customizable, allowing your energy levels to be customized anywhere from 0.5mm to 3.5mm. The energy isn’t the only adjustable element; Dr. Naqvi can also adjust the space between each microneedle, ensuring your treatment is 100% focused on you, your skin, and your goals.
