Pix:E at our San DIego medical spa combines RF microneedling and erbium laser skin resurfacing for powerful skin rejuvenation in a single non-surgical treatment that tightens crepy skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage and other concerns.

What is Pix:E?

Pix:E is an advanced, FDA-cleared device that merges the rejuvenating power of RF (radiofrequency) microneedling with the precision of Erbium YAG laser skin resurfacing. 

This innovative combination offers a dual-action solution for skin rejuvenation:

  • RF microneedling penetrates the skin to deliver energy deep into the dermis, promoting the production of collagen and elastin, which enhances skin texture, firmness, and tone. 
  • Erbium laser skin resurfacing gently removes the outer layer of skin, initiating cellular renewal to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and sun damage. 

Pix:E is designed to be fully customizable, allowing for adjustments in needle depth and laser settings, ensuring each treatment is tailored specifically to meet individual skin types and aesthetic goals.

What Can Pix:E Treat?

Pix:E is designed to transform your skin, offering a variety of benefits with minimal discomfort and downtime. Here are some key advantages of choosing Pix:E treatments:

  • Targeted Treatment for Various Skin Concerns: Pix:E effectively addresses a range of skin issues, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, crepey skin, uneven skin tone and texture, loose skin, and large pores.
  • Efficient and Convenient: Each session is completed in an hour or less, making it a perfect fit for a busy lifestyle. The treatment’s dual technology allows for a more efficient process, targeting multiple skin concerns in one go.
  • Minimal Downtime: With Pix:E, you can return to your daily activities shortly after treatment. The device features a unique setting that reduces radiant heat, enhancing comfort during the procedure.
  • Immediate and Progressive Results: Visible improvements can be seen after just one session, with results continuing to improve over time. This progressive enhancement helps achieve long-lasting rejuvenation.
  • Versatile Application: The device’s adjustable settings make it suitable for treating various areas, including the face, neck, décolletage, abdomen, and other parts of the body, providing a comprehensive aesthetic solution.

Preparing for Pix:E

Your consultation with one of our experienced providers is key to feeling well-prepared for your Pix:E treatment. Here, your skin will be evaluated and you will learn more about the benefits of Pix:E for your specific concerns and goals. You’ll receive clear expectations for the treatment experience as well as aftercare steps you can take to achieve the best results.

Pix:E Treatment

30-40 minutes before your Pix:E treatment begins, your skin will be numbed with an anesthetic cream to enhance your comfort. The length of treatment depends upon the number and size of the areas treated, and may take up to 60 minutes.

Pix:E Recovery & Results

Little to no downtime is needed after Pix:E. Your skin may appear red and may feel as if you have a sunburn, but this will naturally ease within 24-48 hours. Your provider will encourage you to use an emollient such as Aquaphor a few times a day to moisturize and protect your skin.

One of our favorite things about Pix:E is how quickly our patients see results: you will notice an immediate improvement in your skin firmness, tone, and texture and the anti-aging benefits of Pix:E will become more apparent in the weeks and months after your treatment.

FAQs About Pix:E

Is Pix:E safe for all skin types and skin tones?

Pix:E treatment is fully customizable, allowing us to personalize treatment for a range of skin types and skin tones. Your provider will evaluate your skin during your consultation to determine whether Pix:E is the right treatment for you.

Is Pix:E painful?

We will apply a topical numbing cream to your skin before your Pix:E treatment. You may feel sensations of heat and some discomfort, but treatment should not be painful.

How many treatments will I need?

You will see an improvement in the appearance and firmness of your skin after a single Pix:E treatment. We recommend 3-4 treatments, spaced a few weeks apart, for optimal results. Our patients with pronounced acne scarring or other concerns may opt for additional treatments.
