Fractional RF lifting (microneedling) is an effective method of combating wrinkles, stretch marks and sagging skin. Thanks to the piercing of the skin with thin needles, the active substances penetrate more easily and quickly, renewing cells and removing congestion.
Clients easily tolerate the procedure. There are needle injuries, but they are minor and heal within a day. At the same time, the method promotes the penetration of active and nutrient substances into the deeper layers of the skin and starts several processes at the same time.
Minor pain during the procedure
With the help of the procedure, you can solve various problems associated with the condition of the skin of the face and body. In particular:
You will notice the effect after the first session, but for the best result it is recommended to undergo several such procedures (how many, the cosmetologist will determine). After the course, the following changes await you:
Strengthening the oval of the face
Gradual disappearance of stretch marks and scars
Narrowing of pores
Technicians can precisely target a surface area by adjusting the amount of energy from 0.5mm to 3.5mm and prompting dermal coagulation using the advanced penetration mechanism.
The PiXel8-RF system has an optimal amount of space between the microneedles. As a result, the RF energy will be uniformly distributed throughout the target area and will evenly coagulate without the risk of interference caused by nearby, overlapping RF energy.
Rohrer Aesthetics designed the PiXel8-RF system with an Enhanced Delay function that helps eliminate post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) by safely delivering the precise amount of heat necessary to stimulate the growth of collagen in the tissue.Two options allow for precision targeting: the insulated RF needle tip delivers energy only at its tip, while the non-insulated fractional RF tip delivers energy to the epidermis, dermis, and subdermal tissue all at once.
The PiXel8-RF is easy to operate and user-friendly, with a 15-inch touch interface in full color. The system has various inspection and cleaning modes. Plus, the guided-user interface provides an avatar system to apply a precise energy level and penetration depth to the patient’s tissue for proven results. Go between thick areas and thin areas with ease, thanks to the convenient twist knob located on the handpiece that allows you to adjust penetration depth without ever pausing the system.
Fractional RF lifting, although it is a safe procedure, it has a number of limitations. The procedure cannot be carried out in such cases:
Cell stimulation occurs in two ways: mechanical (punctures with needles) and chemical (under the influence of active substances). Eventually:
Activates blood circulation and strengthens the vascular network
Improves oxygen supply to cells
Small congested capillaries are destroyed
Synthesis of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid
Removes non-pathological skin indurations
Training. The beautician cleanses the skin, removes make-up and disinfects the treatment area. Anesthesia is often performed – the area is covered with an anesthetic cream.
Microneedling. After treatment, a special serum with vitamins, collagen, hyaluronic acid and other active ingredients is applied to the skin (the product is selected for each client separately). Then the cosmetologist gently, without jerks, massages using a device with microneedles – until drops of blood come out.
Completion of the procedure. After the appearance of drops of blood, they are wiped off, and the area is treated with an antiseptic and lubricated with a healing cream.
The immediate effect of skin tightening is visible after the first procedure and lasts from 2 days to a week. The result is achieved due to the contraction of collagen fibers when heated. The delayed effect appears after 3-4 weeks and increases as the course progresses.
The recommended course of procedures is usually 5-10 sessions. The visible effect is noticeable after 5 procedures. – After what period of time will it be necessary to do the next course of RF-lifting? A second course of procedures is recommended 6-8 months after the end of the previous course.
The skin injured during the session heals during the day, but if you ignore the simple rules of care, then there is a risk of infection. In the first 3-5 days after the procedure, you should:
Avoid sauna and massage
Avoid sun exposure to the treated area of the skin
Do not use cosmetics (you should use only those products that the beautician recommends)
Avoid the gym and reduce physical activity

Experts do not recommend thermolifting too often – one session a week is enough. To consolidate and maintain the achieved result, cosmetologists prescribe repeated procedures every 6-12 months.
The procedure can be combined with anti-cellulite massage, photorejuvenation, facial mesotherapy, biorevitalization, cavitation, myostimulation. To achieve a more lasting result, a sequence of procedures on the face: photorejuvenation, RF-lifting, biorevitalization.
As a rule, one procedure lasts no more than 30 minutes. RF facelift is a fairly comfortable procedure, so it does not require the use of anesthetics. During the session, there are no mechanical, thermal, or any other skin damage.
