What is Pixel Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Pixel Laser Skin Resurfacing resurfaces the skin’s texture and complexion by producing thousands of pixel size, deep microscopic wounds in the skin. Between these pixel size treatment zones remains uninjured tissue. Not all of the skin is treated in one session, this allows the injured tissue faster healing and makes for little to no downtime after a treatment.

 

 

What areas can be treated with Pixel Laser Skin Resurfacing?

What can I expect from my first Pixel Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment?

The Pixel Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment takes approximately 20 minutes.

Prior to treatment a topical anesthetic is applied to the skin, the laser is then guided over the treatment area by a certified technician. During the Pixel Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment you will feel a snapping sensation on the skin, which most patients describe as tolerable.

Will there be any downtime after my Pixel Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment?

Immediately after the Pixel Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment, your skin will feel warm which is comparable to a mild sunburn for 1 to 2 hours post-treatment. Redness and minor swelling is common, however, the degree of redness and swelling will vary from individual to individual. Within 24 hours of treatment you will be able to shave or apply makeup.

How many treatments and how often should I come for Pixel Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Most clients see a significant improvement in the appearance of their skin after the very first treatment. Depending upon the condition of your skin and the location of the area being treated, the average patient requires two to five treatment sessions for best results.
