Advanced Microneedling Now Available
Dr. McCoy Moretz is proud to now offer advanced microneedling at Face of Beverly Hills with the PiXel8-RF (radio frequency) Micro-Needling System. The PiXel8 RF Advanced Microneedling device differs from conventional microneedling previously offered by Dr. Mac at our clinic (and still available for booking).
Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, is primarily used to reverse the signs of aging. Microneedling with PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is done using a professional-grade derma roller. This procedure is still offered by Dr. Moretz and Face of Beverly Hills in addition to our advanced microneedling procedure using radio frequency technology.

The PiXel8-RF Microneedling System has been specificallydesigned to deliver RF energy directly into the epidermal, dermaland sub-dermal layers of tissue in order to heat and stimulate
Microneedling can be used for multiple applications on both the face and body:
- Wrinkle Reduction
- Non-Surgical Face-Lifting
- Skin Rejuvenation & Tightening
- Pore & Scar Reduction (such as from acne & otherwise)
- Treating Hyperhidrosis
- Scar Reduction
- Treating Spider Veins & Stretch Marks
A standard procedure using the PiXel8-RF Advanced Microneedling System takes approximately 1 hour. When used in conjunction with the Arctic Air Chiller, the procedure is virtually painless.
Recovery is quick, however transient erythema may occur in the treated area for 3-4 hours initially. In the event of the formation of a fine scab, keep the scab moist to promote the healing process and it should go away quickly.
Some of the benefits of PiXel8-RF microneedling include:
- Minimal Downtime & Discomfort
- Safe to Use on Multiple Skin Types
- Energy Delivered to the Epidermis, Dermis & Sub-Dermis
- Low Risk of PIH (Post-Inflammatory Hyper-Pigmentation)
- Insulated & Non-Insulated Needles (see benefits below)
By using insulated or non-insulated needles, the PiXel8-RF delivers thermal energy to multiple treatment areas safe and effectively.
The PiXel8-RF is also considered “color blind” in that it can be used on all skin types as the RF does not target the melanin in the skin.
There may be other benefits to advanced microneedling over conventional microneedling. For questions, contact us to book a consultation with Dr. Mac Moretz. Dr. Moretz will be happy to review the benefits of advanced microneedling in reaching your cosmetic goals!
The process of advanced microneedling begins with steps comparable to those used in conventional microneedling to stimulate collagen production in the skin. Similar to the professional-grade derma roller used in our standard microneedling with PRP procedure, a tool is applied to the skin for the microneedling process. The tool of the PiXel8-RF Advanced Microneedling System makes perfect contact with the skin and microneedles smoothly penetrate the skin with less irritation than the derma roller and other microneedling methods.
However, what makes the process particularly unique are the steps that follow. The PiXel8-RF Advanced Microneedling System then emits bipolar RF energy from the tool to the skin where the microneedling has just taken place. This denaturalizes the tissue surrounding the microneedles. This results in collagen regeneration and begins the process of new elastic production.
