Skin Tightening

PiXel8-RF Skin Tightening Device in Jackson, MS

You’ve probably heard of the many benefits of microneedling due to its popularity for treating an array of skin concerns. Now, science and technology have banded together to create PiXel8-RF, one of the newest and most successful advancements to collagen-induction technology. The clinicians at Faces, PLLC are excited to offer this state-of-the-art treatment to our Jackson, Mississippi clientele.

The PiXel8-RF was developed to fight signs of aging that appear on the face due to a decrease in collagen production. What makes PiXel8-RF so revolutionary is that it only uses radio frequency (RF) energy, making it suitable for all skin types. Our skincare and facial rejuvenation specialists provide this service, to not only fight against aging in the skin, but to also improve the appearance of a myriad of other skin issues that will not respond to topical solutions.

What Is PiXel8-RF?

Before undergoing any skin treatment, it’s essential to fully understand how the technology works and exactly what it does, and doesn’t do, for the skin. PiXel8-RF skin tightening treatment utilizes bipolar energy that radiates heat deep into the layers of the epidermis where skin damage, such as wrinkles, age spots, and scarring, begin.

The addition of heat, along with the micro-channels created by the superfine needles in the handheld device, boosts the body’s collagen production by causing hemostasis and coagulation and bringing about the regeneration of vital elastin cells. This is especially helpful for patients who need attention underneath their eyes, on their cheeks, and along their forehead.

When combined, the components of PiXel8-RF pave the way for a softer, smoother, and more resilient complexion. If you are struggling with fine lines, large pores, acne, acne scarring, or loose skin, this treatment may help you achieve the more youthful appearance you desire.

What Are the Benefits of PiXel8-RF?

PiXel8-RF is an aesthetic procedure that is great for a vast assortment of skin concerns and suitable for a diverse range of skin types, including sensitive, dry, oily, acne-prone, or aged. It is tailored to help patients decrease the severity of:

  • Loose, sagging skin
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Enlarged, noticeable pores
  • Scars, including acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation

The PiXel8-RF system is also unique in that it allows the practitioner to fully customize the treatment experience. Additional benefits of PiXel8-RF include:

  • A comfortable and controlled environment

Am I a Good Candidate for a Jackson, MS PiXel8-RF Treatment?

Good candidates for the PiXel8-RF treatment want to tighten, rejuvenate, and firm their skin while also boosting their radiance and improving their complexion. Individuals particularly in their late 30s and 40s who are beginning to see noticeable signs of aging because of skin laxity, but feel that it’s too early for surgery are also potentially good candidates. The PiXel8-RF treatment is safe for every skin type and minimizes the risk of hyperpigmentation in darker skin tones.

If you’re curious whether or not you are suitable for PiXel8-RF treatments, the best way to find out is a consultation with a reputable and qualified professional, who is well versed with the procedure and the nature of skin. Prior to your treatment, our clinicians will thoroughly evaluate your skin and review your past medical history to ensure you are suitable for PiXel8-RF Skin Tightening.

What To Expect From a PiXel8-RF Treatment

The PiXel8-RF treatment generally takes about 20 minutes to 30 minutes depending on whether the treatment area needs to be prepared with a topical anesthetic. In the first step of your treatment, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, skincare products, dirt, or debris. Next, if you so choose, a topical anesthetic will be applied to your skin to minimize any discomfort throughout your treatment. Once the skin is numb, your skincare professional will begin by carefully and precisely drawing the PiXel8-RF device across the area being treated, creating micro-channels that activate your body’s natural healing response.

Afterward, you may experience some redness and minor swelling that typically dissipates within 24 hours after your treatment. After 24 hours, you can apply cosmetics to hide any residual redness, if desired.

The PiXel8-RF Treatment as Part of a Facial Rejuvenation Plan

The PiXel8-RF skin tightening device can be used as a stand-alone service for loose, sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and a myriad of other skin concerns, but can also serve as an adjunct treatment for full facial rejuvenation. Many patients choose to include BOTOX® and fillers as part of their overall plan to achieve their aesthetics goals. It goes without saying that a good at-home regimen with medical-grade skincare products and routine facials with a medical aesthetician will also enhance and extend any benefits realized from a comprehensive plan.  Dr. Jordan and his team of facial rejuvenation and skincare specialists are here to assist you in making informed and educated decisions on your journey to healthier skin and a more youthful looking you!
