Pixel Skin Resurfacing.

Dramatic results in little time.

Pixel is the next generation of fractional laser resurfacing that helps to improve skin texture, tone and firmness, smoothes wrinkles, and reduces pore size and scars (including acne scars) without the downtime and discomfort associated with other resurfacing lasers. This FDA-approved treatment represents the best of both worlds for skin resurfacing: it combines the proven effectiveness of an ablative approach with the client comfort level and convenience of a non-ablative approach.

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. The treatment then 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 as a reservoir for more effective and rapid tissue healing and collagen production. The bottom line: new, healthier, smoother tissue in place of skin imperfections.

In addition, unlike some other fractional lasers (i.e. Fraxel), Pixel requires no topical anesthetic or messy dyes, therefore reducing the risk of a bronzing or tattooing effect. Clients experience less pain during the treatment and a shorter recovery period.

Common areas to be treated include the face, neck, chest, hands and arms. Generally, treatment involves two to four sessions, at four week intervals. There is little or no discomfort during the treatment. Most commonly, clients feel some slight warmth with the pulse of the laser. Clients experience a sunburn-like sensation afterward (3-4 hours) that is easily neutralized with a gentle moisturizer. Make-up can be applied immediately afterward. Some flaking will be experienced for one or two days with full recovery in about five days. Your skin will look better within days following the treatment, and results steadily improve over the next few months.
