Pixel Laser: Fractional minimally-ablative Skin Resurfacing is the only method which offers both excellent results and little to no downtime. Fractional Skin Treatments deliver light in an array of narrow, focused “micro-beams” to create columns of heat within the skin. These micro-beams penetrate deep into the dermis for the most effective, long-term results obtainable. The heated tissue within the columns starts a natural healing process that forms new, healthy tissue. This results in a decrease in sunspots, fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring and a fresher, more youthful skin tone and texture. The fractional approach stimulates quick healing, while leaving your skin’s surface intact, with no lasting redness.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Your treatment is performed using a fractional hand piece gently guided across the skin delivering micro-beams of infrared energy into the skin. Only a fraction of the skin mosaic is injured, leaving uninjured skin areas. The intact, undamaged skin around the treatment site promotes quicker healing for a faster recovery. Treatments usually take 20-30 minutes depending on the surface area treated.
WHY CHOOSE PIXEL LASER?: Most patients choose it because it:
- decreases sunspots
- requires minimal recovery time
- minimizes the risk for causing bruising, crusting or scarring
- does not cause bleeding
- provides a level of control that cannot be achieved with any other lasers
- provides a fresher, more youthful skin tone and texture
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?: You may experience lingering redness, warmth, swelling or tightness in the treated area, which fades within a few hours of treatment. Generally, you can receive a treatment and go back to work or to other activities without any recovery time. Because the light pulses are confined to narrow columns in the skin, much of the skin is left unaffected and there is a quick healing process, most people notice positive changes in the skin tone and texture within a few days. A series of treatments may be required to achieve your desired results
