It’s possible to stimulate healthy, new collagen production and achieve a noticeably revitalized, years-younger look without surgery or extensive downtime with advanced microneedling at Spa Noor Medical Spa & Laser Center.
We are proud to introduce Pixel8 RF microneedling, in addition to our existing MDPen microneedling service!
These devices work differently and require different levels of downtime. MDPen is non-invasive while Pixel8 is minimally invasive and combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. We will help you determine the best device for your unique needs and goals during your personal consultation.
Pixel8 RF Microneedling
This innovative, non-surgical treatment smooths and tightens skin with a potent combination of microneedling and RF energy. Pixel8 treatments can be customized to each client’s unique needs and afford a wide range of skin improvements.
The benefits of Pixel8 RF microneedling include:
- Skin tightening in most parts of the face or body, including the neck
- Improving the appearance of stretch marks
- Enhancing skin strength and resilience; reducing skin crepiness or laxity
- Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improving the appearance of scars and acne scars
- Reducing the appearance of pores
- Softening and refining skin texture
MDPen is a non-invasive microneedling treatment that improves skin texture by creating a pattern of micro channels in your desired treatment area. These micro channels significantly increase your skin’s production of healthy collagen and elastin. MDPen works for almost any area of the body, including the face, neck, décolleté, stomach/abdomen and thighs.
The benefits of MDPen treatments include:
- Lifting and tightening lax skin
- Reducing wrinkles
- Diminishing acne scars, hyperpigmentation and stretch marks
- Smoothing skin
- Evening out skin tone
- Enhancing absorption of medical-grade products or your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
FAQs: Pixel8 RF and MDPen Microneedling
in Fall River, MA at Spa Noor
How does Pixel8 RF microneedling work?
During Pixel8 treatments, tiny microneedles quickly penetrate the skin and deliver energy (bipolar RF) at targeted depths below the skin’s surface to induce tissue tightening, texture smoothing, collagen and elastic fiber remodeling and regeneration.
What sets Pixel8 apart from other fractional RF devices is its precise engineering and software. By adjusting the amount of energy, depth and areas of treatment, Pixel8 can be customized to each patient’s specific skin needs and goals.
Pixel8 has a powerful energy source that achieves a higher level of temperature control and more consistent delivery than many other similar devices; this optimizes the comfort, safety and effectiveness of each treatment.
Is there any downtime or after-care required with Pixel8?
Immediately after treatment, your skin will be rosy, slightly sensitive and swollen, like a mild to moderate sunburn. This typically resolves in two to five days and may itch or feel sensitive while healing. Bruising is uncommon but may occur in patients on blood thinners, those with thin skin or in certain treatment areas, such as near the eyes.
On the day of your treatment, skincare should be limited to those recommended by your provider. The next day, moisturizers, sunscreen and makeup may be applied.
Depending on the intensity of treatment and your skin color, dark pinpoint spots may appear immediately or a few days after treatment. These represent laser-stimulated skin that is being rejuvenated. The spots will emerge and flake away over the next one to three weeks.
Medical-grade moisturizers can reduce itching and flaking and speed up the healing process. Daily broad-spectrum sun protection is essential and optimizes your results.
How many Pixel8 treatments will I need?
For most patients, we recommend a series of three treatments to see skin tightening, softening of lines and overall texture improvements. For optimal improvement of scars, five to six sessions may be required.
The ideal number of treatments depends on the condition of your skin before treatment, the problems being addressed and your skin’s unique response to treatment. Treatment sessions are usually spaced one to two months apart.
How do I know if Pixel8 is right for me?
Pixel8 is ideal for anyone interested in addressing common signs of skin aging, stretch marks or scars. This treatment is completely customizable and can be used on all skin types and skin tones.
How does MDPen work?
MDPen works by rapidly creating a pattern of micro channels in your desired treatment area. These micro-channels are non-ablative, which means they do not break the skin, but work to significantly increase the production of collagen and elastin, leaving your skin smoother, fresher and more evenly toned. Micro channels also enhance the skin’s ability to absorb medical-grade products like anti-aging serums or even your own PRP when applied during and immediately after treatment.
Is there any downtime or after-care required with MDPen treatments?
There is no downtime with MDPen. We recommend avoiding the sun the day of your treatment and thorough sun protection is always recommended thereafter.
How many MDPen treatments will I need?
For optimal results, we typically recommend a series of four treatment sessions spaced one month apart, but your ideal number of treatments will depend on your individual skin type and goals.
How do I know if MDPen is right for me?
MDPen is ideal for anyone interested in looking noticeably, naturally younger without surgery or extensive downtime. MDPen is also a great option for people with darker skin tones, since it can treat many of the same skin concerns often addressed by laser treatments that are not safe for those with darker skin.
