Pixel8 Radiofrequency Microneedling is an advanced cosmetic procedure that combines the benefits of microneedling and radiofrequency energy to rejuvenate the skin. During the treatment, tiny needles penetrate the skin’s surface, creating micro-injuries that trigger the body’s natural healing response. Simultaneously, radiofrequency energy is delivered through these needles, promoting collagen production and tightening the skin. This dual-action approach results in smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.
