Pixel Skin Resurfacing.

Q) How does it Work?
A) Pixel skin resurfacing is based on the principle of microthermal treatment zones. The laser pulses create tiny ablative zones, removing the epidermis and upper dermis. Treatment triggers the body’s natural healing process, stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin tissue.

The procedure treats small zones of the skin, leaving surrounding tissue untouched and intact. These large unaffected areas act a reservoir for more effective and rapid tissue healing and collagen production. The bottom line: new healthier, smoother tissue in place of skin imperfection.

Q) What to expect?
A) Your physician will determine the ideal treatment plan for your needs. Generally , treatment involves two to four sessions, at four-week intervals. Right after treatment you may feel a slight tingling sensation. You may experience slight swelling for a day or two. As new skin replaces dead tissue, your skin will flake, a sign that healing is underway. Your skin will look better immediately, and will steadily improve over the next few months.

Q) Does it hurt?
A) Far more comfortable then conventional laser skin resurfacing, Pixel is experienced by most patients as a comfortable sensation.

Q) Who can be treated and on what parts of the body?
A) Pixel skin resurfacing can be used on patients of most skin types anywhere on the body. Since this procedure spares healthy tissue, it can be preformed on delicate skin areas, such as the face, neck, chest, and hands.

The Advantage of Pixel Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing (LSR), like chemical peels, dermabrasion and microdermabrasion is commonly used to restore the youthful apperance of wrinkled, sun damaged skin. While yielding excellent results, LSR often involves discomfort and significant downtime. That means an extended period indoors, with no sun exposure-an impossibility for many active and working patients.

Compared to other methods, pixel skin resurfacing saves patients time and discomfort. In short, Pixel skin resurfacing offers the best of both worlds, superior results, yet no pain and downtime.
