Here’s the Skinny on Crystal Depth8

Stacey Boscoe Zinnanti, Licensed Clinical Aesthetician at BodyLab Med Spa

What is Crystal Depth8?

Crystal Depth8 is a minimally invasive device for skin rejuvenation that pairs microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. This treatment delivers RF energy heat into the skin via ultra-thin needles, creating controlled microinjuries. This triggers a natural healing response, promoting new collagen and elastin production that resurfaces and firms skin. It improves the face and neck to reveal more defined characteristics and a younger, brighter appearance. The energy is delivered to treat tissue reducing fat pockets as well as address signs of aging, irregularities, and pigmentation. This treatment is offered for the face and body.

How does Crystal Depth8 work?

As the tool enters the skin, the radiofrequency waves transmit through the microneedle heads to create a coagulation of the subcutaneous tissue underneath the skin. It injures the existing collagen in the subcutaneous layer and triggers an increase in collagen formation, making the skin tighter by way of the healing process.

What happens during a Crystal Depth8 treatment?

We will cover the treatment area with topical numbing cream or gel, which may take an hour or more to fully numb the skin. The device allows us to customize the depth of the radiofrequency heat delivered by its microneedles, to reach different depths of the dermal layers (e.g., superficial, intermediate, deep) and target specific skin concerns. Then we will methodically stamp the handpiece across your skin, allowing the needles to penetrate below the surface and deliver the radiofrequency energy. The number of passes and amount of energy delivered into the tissue depends on the treatment area and desired goals. Some areas may feel more sensitive than others.

Do Crystal Depth8 treatments hurt?

Because you are given a topical anesthetic to numb the skin prior to the procedure, the Crystal Depth8 treatments are not usually painful, but it can still be painful for some people.

Who can benefit from a Crystal Depth8 treatment?

It’s a perfect treatment for many busy professionals and parents who want significant all-around facial anti-aging but don’t have much time to spare. The best candidates are usually patients in their 30’s, 40s, and 50’s who have only mild to moderate skin laxity. It is a minimally invasive procedure suitable for all skin tones, with little to no risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).  This treatment is most performed for skin resurfacing and deeper tissue remodeling on the face and neck. It can be especially effective for treating mild jowls, firming the jawline, and smoothing the under-eye area and around the mouth. It can also be used on almost any part of the body, including the abdomen, buttocks, chest, arms, or above the knees. Crystal Depth 8 can also be used for mild cellulite but this isn’t the go-to cellulite treatment for moderate to severe dimpling.
