How It Works


The condition of the skin can greatly reveal what the patient has been through over the years. Sometimes the skin on the face makes the patient appear older than he/she is. This can affect the patient’s self-confidence and make him/her feel less beautiful. Also, the face may be covered with wrinkles, acne scars, sun and age spots or the skin can be saggy – this all contributes to the patient’s dissatisfaction. The skin on other body areas may appear older than it is because it has lost its elasticity and become too saggy. This is where RF Pixel treatment comes in handy and helps with these skin concerns.

RF pixel is a powerful treatment that uses MICROPLASMA, based on UniPolar RF technology and is made by air particles between the skin and radiofrequency. The treatment tip makes controlled micro-wounds in the zones of thermal heat. The benefit of the treatment is that it ablates only tiny areas of the tissue and keeps the surrounding tissue intact. This undamaged tissue actually speeds up the healing of the damaged tissue and as a result, the skin is smoother, the scars or pigmentation are eliminated.

It is suitable for all skin tones because it is fractional and its energy is divided into tiny parts.  It affects the superficial layer of the skin and the deeper ones and thus stimulates the production of new collagen fibers. Collagen is an important protein that keeps the skin firm so the advantage of this treatment is that it equips the skin with enough collagen to fight against future aging effects. The treatment rejuvenates the skin, makes it firmer and younger-looking and provides nothing but natural-looking results.


The RF Pixel treatment is unique because it causes mechanical and thermal damage and evaporation deep underneath the skin’s surface with minimal damage to the epidermis. RF Pixel applicator heats the dermal and sub-dermal tissue in a gradual and steady way to tighten, smooth and contour the face or body. It is a non-invasive treatment that can decrease cellulite, stretch marks or scars and completely rejuvenate the skin.

Usually, it treats:

  •     Large pores
  •     Wrinkles and fine lines
  •     Acne and other scars
  •     Hyperpigmentation – sun and age spots
  •     Skin texture

Except for fine lines and wrinkles, the treatment can reduce other visible signs of aging like freckles, broken capillaries, keratoses, deep furrows and other blemishes.

RF Pixel treatment can eliminate bacteria that cause breakouts because it minimizes the oil glands’ activity.

The body areas that can be treated include the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands, arms and abdomen.


In today’s world where a healthy and active lifestyle is greatly appreciated, some men and women are self-conscious about their appearance because they feel younger than they appear. There are a lot of skin concerns that contribute to the loss of self-esteem like acne and other scars, sun-damaged skin, wrinkles and fine lines and age spots.  RF Pixel can turn back the clock and reverse the signs of aging.

RF Pixel treatment is a brilliant solution for tightening, contouring and rejuvenating the skin. It provides a younger-looking and healthier appearance in a safe way and with minimal downtime.

It doesn’t harm the top layer of the skin but stimulates the new skin cells’ growth in the deepest layers. It heats those layers and boosts collagen and elastin production and results in smoother and refreshed skin.

Another advantage of RF Pixel treatment is that it is not absorbed by melanin so the skin color is not an issue. It can be used for all skin tones.

The treatment time is fast and can last only 30 minutes. The downtime is significantly decreased when compared to other skin resurfacing treatments. The best possible results can be achieved with only a few treatment sessions.

RF Pixel treatment can provide different benefits, including:

  •     Tightening and firming of the skin
  •     Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
  •     Decreasing the pore size
  •     Improving hyperpigmentation
  •     Improving stretch marks
  •     Removing acne, surgical and other scars

RF Pixel treatment can achieve a significant skin tightening in just one treatment session and improve the texture and tone of the skin. It can brilliantly revitalize the skin and return its healthy and younger-looking plumpness with collagen production. The treatment reveals the patient’s natural beauty by eliminating wrinkles and softening deep frown lines.

RF Pixel achieves amazing results regarding natural skin rejuvenation and regeneration because it triggers the body’s own potential to heal and improve the skin’s appearance.



    Anyone who wants to improve their skin appearance can greatly benefit from this treatment. The patients can tighten their skin without needles or more invasive procedures.

    The treatment is versatile and addresses different skin imperfections like age-related skin concerns like wrinkles and fine lines, puffiness or skin laxity. It can treat small areas of stubborn fat like double chin or adiposity of the lower face. It can also re-contour submental areas.

    The treatment can be performed in order to regenerate the skin only superficially or more deeply to stimulate the skin tightening process. It can also combine these two different ways in a single treatment.

    Both men and women can benefit from this treatment without regard to their age or skin tone. The RF Pixel skin resurfacing treatment can be done at any time of the year and provide the patients with radiant and fresh-looking skin both in the summer and winter.


    When the patient arrives at Lucia Clinic, first he/she is consulted with the therapist. The therapist examines the patient’s skin on the face or other body areas to determine if the patient is a good candidate for this treatment. Then the therapist creates a customized treatment plan that will address the patient’s specific skin concerns and meet the patient’s expectations. The protocol includes determining the proper treatment parameters, depth and volume of the energy that is emitted during the treatment. The therapist also determines the number of treatment sessions.

    Before the treatment, the patient’s skin is numbed with the anesthetic cream in order to make the treatment more comfortable.

    The treatment is done in two steps.

    Step 1
    involves creating micro-channels with the RF Pixel applicator or a roller and Microplasma particles. The patient feels a tingling sensation and gradual heat. These micro-channels represent a path to deep skin layers. Only a small part of the tissue is ablated. Simultaneously, microplasma makes controlled heat damage through focused energy to the top layer of the skin and triggers the body’s natural processes for healing which eventually substitutes the damaged tissue like a scar for example, with the healthy one. The healthy tissue actually speeds up the recovery. The energy targets only the damaged tissue so the hyperpigmentation gets eliminated, the collagen is tightened and gradually the skin gets smoother.

    Step 2
    involves applying an ampule of regenerative skin products to the skin’s surface. While the micro-channels are opened the products pass through them and end up in deeper skin layers. The therapeutic features of these skin products target the damaged tissue. This step is performed with IMPACT ultrasound technology and the skin products usually include growth factors, stem cells, hyaluronic acid, vitamins and antioxidants. The patient’s skin is deeply infused with these powerful ingredients.

    The treatment is quite bearable and most patients tolerate it really well because of the anesthetic.

    The treatment usually lasts for an hour - 30minutes for the numbing cream and 30 minutes for the actual treatment.


    The number of RF Pixel treatment sessions depends on the patient’s skin conditions. Usually, it is recommended to get 3 to 4 treatment sessions 4 weeks apart. In order to maintain the results of the treatment and to constantly trigger the production of collagen, the patient can have 1 or 2 touch-up treatments every year.


    After the treatment, the patient’s skin is moderately red and swollen for a couple of hours. The patient might feel a hot sunburn sensation. The skin also feels tight. The next day, the skin is less red and becomes dry. In the next few days, the treated skin area will start to peel and reveal the healthy new skin underneath.

    The downtime usually lasts for 5 days. After that most patients can resume all their social activities.

    After the treatment, the patient should keep the skin moisturized and protected from the sun. This way the recovery time may end sooner.

    After 10 days, the patient’s skin starts to look better, fresher and brighter. The best results are visible 3 to 4 months post-treatment because the skin needs some time to produce new and healthy collagen.
