There are a number of reasons why RF Micro-Needling needs to be your new go-to option for full skin rejuvenation.

How Does the Treatment Work?
Dr. Kim uses the PiXel8-RF technology, which provides precise and controlled coagulation and hemostasis deep within the dermis to help stimulate collagen, providing dramatic skin tightening and rejuvenation results. The micro-needle depth can be adjusted for each treatment area. Thereby, allowing for customized treatments to delicate areas, such as under the eyes, the forehead and cheek bones.
The micro-needling device stamps a grid of microneedles evenly throughout the face, neck, or body area. Due to the light radiofrequency heat that is also distributed at the same time, there is very little pain associated with the 20 minute procedure. If you have a high sensitivity for pain, ask for a topical numbing gel to be applied 30 minutes prior to the procedure.
How Many Treatments are Needed?
Results can be seen after just one treatment, however, to help achieve the maximum benefit, a 3-treatment series is recommended with each treatment 4 weeks apart. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Kim by calling 770-458-4255 to find out how he can help your needs.
One of the greatest things about RF micro-needling is that patients usually experience minimal to no downtime, and have few restrictions following their treatment. The treated area may be red with some minor swelling, which will subside within a day. Makeup can be applied after 24 hours.
