Pixel Laser Skin Resurfacing is an ablative, fractional skin resurfacing device that improves the appearance of various skin imperfections and tightens and tones underlying skin. It uses microthermal zones of laser energy to safely and effectively create thousands of microscopic perforations in your skin with each pulse, stimulating the body’s natural healing process and encouraging new collagen growth. Ablative lasers use intense heat to vaporize skin cells while non ablative lasers do not vaporize skin cells. Fractional lasers target specific percentages of a treatment area while non fractional lasers act on the entire surface area. The combination of ablative and fractional laser with the Pixel results in an even, gradual improvement in texture and tone over several weeks to months after treatment.
Pixel Laser Skin Resurfacing has similar powerful results as a more aggressive CO2 laser treatment with less discomfort and recovery time. After treatment, patients can expect smoother texture, reduced pigmentation, decreased pore size, and fewer wrinkles too!
