Bothered by common signs of aging, but prefer to avoid a facelift? Board-certified plastic surgeon James Shaw, MD offers the advanced PiXel8-RF microneedling system at his practice to help Wichita patients achieve a more youthful skin tone and texture — all without surgery or extensive downtime. Known as a form of collagen induction therapy (CIT), radiofrequency microneedling has the ability to vastly improve common skin concerns while remodeling the collagen framework from within.
What are the Benefits of Rohrer® PiXel8-RF Microneedling?
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedlingworks by using the body’s natural healing mechanisms to stimulate the growth of newer, softer skin. This process is strengthened by the introduction of RF energy to the deeper tissues at the same time as microneedling, allowing adjunctive skin tightening at the same time as facial rejuvenation. RF microneedling can beautifully improve many common indications of aging, including:
Crepey or sagging skin
Age spots and hyperpigmentation
Poor skin tone
Rough skin texture
Wrinkles and fine lines
The PiXel8-RF® microneedling system can be extremely effective in transforming one’s skin to achieve a healthier complexion. Depending on the extent of your concerns, multiple treatments over the course of several months may be the best way to obtain the most optimal results.
Is PiXel8-RF® Microneedling Right for Me?
As a non-surgical cosmetic enhancement treatment, PiXel8-RF® microneedling can benefit a wide range of patients — particularly those who wish to achieve facial rejuvenation without the time and expense of surgery. This RF microneedling system is cleared by the FDA and considered safe for all skin types. If you’re bothered by the appearance of common signs of aging, such as wrinkles, sagging skin, or an uneven skin tone, PiXel8-RF® microneedling can act as a non-surgical facelift alternative to help correct visible signs of aging. Dr. Shaw and our team can review your goals and medical history to determine the best treatment or facial plastic surgery procedure for your needs.
How is Treatment with PiXel8-RF® Microneedling Performed?
Treatment with PiXel8-RF® microneedling is performed in-office and does not require any downtime after your appointment. During the microneedling process, thousands of tiny microperforations are made in the treated area(s) to stimulate the skin’s natural healing capabilities. Dead, damaged skin cells are then sloughed off to make room for the growth of new skin. Simultaneously, a handheld wand uses RF energy to apply gentle heat to the deeper planes of the skin. This allows adjunctive skin tightening at the same time as your facial rejuvenation. Together, this combination of microneedling and RF energy can noticeably improve the tone and texture of the skin while providing a brighter, more youthful look.
