What is Pixel RF?

pixel-rf

PixelRF uses proprietary In-Motion™ Refractive Radiofrequency Micro Plasma Technology which both ablates and heats the skin through controlled, focused delivery of energy without using disposables. Healthy skin around the treated area helps to accelerate the healing process thus improving results and reducing patient down time by allowing the need for just the targeted tissue to heal and collagen to strengthen. The result is fresh, smooth, radiant skin.

With its high-energy output, the PixelRF can achieve in as little as one session what would require multiple sessions with other RF technologies. Not only is it highly effectitve to use on all skin types but treatments can be administered year-round with no seasonal restrictions. Unlike dermal rollers or low power bi-polar RF applicators that superficially ablate and heat the skin, the PixelRF causes evaporation, mechanical damage and thermal damage deep beneath the epidermis-dermis surface providing significant dermal impact with minimal epidermal disruption.

What is the benefit of a Dermapod microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a form of deep exfoliation which propels microcrystals across the skin to remove dead skin cells and improve the texture and smoothness of the skin, as well as promoting the production of fresh collagen and cells.

As well as simply creating a youthful glow, it can be used to treat a wide range of skin problems including wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, flaking skin, enlarged pores, acne scars, pigmentation, dry skin, age spots, stretch marks and more.

What is the procedure for lip augmentation? What can patients expect during the treatment?

Lip augmentation can be obtained through a variety of techniques depending upon the Surgeon performing the augmentation.  Skill and experience cannot substitute for a cosmetically trained eye and your options will be discussed in consultation.  Various  fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, to autologous fat can be used to augment the lips.  Most patients leave the office with little to no bruising or swelling, and they can immediately return to their normal routine. Permanent enhancement uses filler agents and have a proven safety record. There is very little associated discomfort with the procedure as a nerve block is usually used for anesthesia.
