About RF Microneedling

Our esthetician's use the minimally invasive PiXel8-RF to perform radiofrequency (RF) microneedling under the direction of Mark Petroff, MD.  This device produced outstanding results for patients seeking smoother, softer skin. RF remedies have existed for a number of years and are popular in the cosmetic industry for skin tightening. This specific type of treatment incorporates heat to encourage the creation of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin and creates a more even, smoother surface. PiXel8-RF microneedling may be used in conjunction with other facial treatments to optimize end results and speed the healing process. At Petroff Center Plastic Surgery and Medi-Spa, we frequently add this new process to our Lake Oswego, OR patient's skin treatments to produce firmer skin, a much smoother texture, and a glowing complexion.

Ideal Candidates

Patients who are 40 years of age or older and are starting to notice age spots, discoloration, wrinkles, fine lines, and other skin flaws (including sunlight exposure) may be ideal candidates for treatment with the nonsurgical PiXel8-RF protocol. RF microneedling is a wonderful choice for those who want to:

  • Tighten the skin, producing a more refreshed appearance
  • Boost skin feel, tone, and pigment
  • Heal skin imperfections, like blood vessels and discoloration
  • Minimize the appearance of age spots and sun damage
  • Treat acne scars and other forms of scarring
  • Create a smoother look and feel for the skin
  • Rejuvenate the skin for a younger, more luminous look

Procedure Technique

The nonsurgical PiXel8-RF microneedling procedure method is quite easy. The handheld device, which emits bi-polar radiofrequency energy, works by delivering brief bursts of RF energy and heat deep within the layers of the skin through microneedles. This process stimulates the production of collagen and regenerates elastin while offering hemostatic and tissue coagulation effects. The size of the microneedles and energy transmitted through them can be customized to meet the needs of each patient.

What to Expect

RF microneedling sessions take place inside the Petroff Center Plastic Surgery and Medi-Spa facility and begin with the application of a topical numbing cream to help minimize any discomfort. During the procedure, the handpiece will be directed over the target area, repeating the process until the desired results have been reached. Patients should anticipate minute pinpoint scabs to appear within 24 – 72 hours after treatment, which will naturally shed when the inherent skin has recovered. However, the PiXel8-RF process generally requires very little downtime. While some patients notice smoother, softer skin after the initial RF microneedling procedure, the results typically become visible as the skin heals over the next few weeks. To optimize outcomes, a series of up to four treatments may be completed about 3 – 4 weeks apart.
