Pixel skin resurfacing improves skin texture and tone, smoothes wrinkles, and restores elasticity. It also improves scar appearance and enlarged pores. In short, this procedure erases those factors that add years to our appearance, restoring youthful vitality.
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.
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.
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 performed on delicate skin areas, such as the face, neck, chest and hands.
