What is Pixel laser skin resurfacing?
Now there’s a brand new way to reverse the signs of aging and ensure your inner radiance shines through. It’s called Pixel Perfect™, and it can dramatically revitalize your skin. This innovative aesthetic laser treatment helps counteract years of sun damage or acne scarring. It provides noticeable results, often in as little as a single treatment.
If you’ve considered laser skin resurfacing, microdermabrasion or deep chemical peels, but hesitated because of the extended recovery time or anesthesia required, Pixel Perfect may be the right solution for you. It provides similar dramatic results through a superior technology with fewer risks and a much faster healing time.
At Advanced Anti-Aging & Weight Loss in Evansville, Pixel Perfect™, the fractional rejuvenation procedure performed exclusively by Pixel® laser technology from Alma Lasers®, lifts away years from your face and stimulates new collagen to grow. It improves your skin’s texture and tone to fight fine lines, wrinkles, and even acne scars.
What can Pixel laser treatment help fix?
- Clears sun-damaged skin
- Smooths fine lines and wrinkles
- Shrinks the appearance of pores
- Fills in acne scars
- Blends uneven pigmentation
What can I expect during treatment?
Pixel® Perfect treatments are safe and effective, without injections or surgery. You can expect your skin to be flushed and red after the treatment-something similar to sunburn. Your doctor may also prescribe an over-the-counter pain medicine to make you more comfortable. These symptoms are a normal part of the healing process and should improve quickly.
How Does Pixel Work?
Pixel® works by creating thousands of microscopic perforations, but the skin around each of these perforations remains intact. This allows your skin’s top layer to heal from the edge of these tiny holes very rapidly, which significantly improves your complexion.
In more detail, the Pixel® laser light passes through patented optics to penetrate the skin with tiny thermal channels, only as deep as a few sheets of paper. In each channel it creates a micro-injury, without disturbing the surrounding tissue. These micro-injury sites (about 15-20 percent of the treatment area) start the process of healing. As collagen remodels, skin tightens and scars improve. The intact, undamaged skin around the treatment site is what promotes quicker healing for a faster recovery.
The Pixel® technology in Pixel Perfect™ represents an evolved solution for skin rejuvenation, compared to earlier laser skin resurfacing techniques that involved more traumatic side effects.
Am I a good candidate for Pixel laser treatment?
Anyone whose skin shows signs of aging is a candidate for Pixel. The most dramatic results are seen on people who have tried non-invasive therapies and are looking for something more aggressive. The best candidates have moderate sun damage, are in good health, have good health habits and typically take good care of their skin.
Does Pixel work on all skin types?
Yes, Pixel® can be performed on all skin types; however, it is a good idea to consult with your physician, as some skin conditions can interfere with proper treatment.
How long does Pixel skin rejuvenation take?
Pixel skin rejuvenation treatments usually take less than 30 minutes, but could be longer if your condition is more advanced. Your exact treatment regimen will depend on your individual condition.
Is it safe?
Pixel treatments are safe and effective, without injections or surgery. You can expect your skin to be flushed and red after the treatment, but this is completely normal and short-lived. As long as you carefully follow your post-treatment instructions, this will be the limit of the difficulties you might experience.
Does it hurt?
How much the procedure hurts varies from person to person. In general, the procedure can feel similar to sunburn. Your doctor may prescribe an over-the-counter pain medicine to make you more comfortable. The sunburn sensation is likely to continue after the treatment. These symptoms are a normal part of the healing process and should improve quickly.
Will I need more than one treatment? How long do results last?
While Pixel Perfect reverses the appearance of aging, we can’t stop the aging process. Depending on your starting point and your lifestyle following treatment, your new look can last several months or longer.
For most patients, a touch-up treatment after 6-12 months (usually using a different light-based skin rejuvenation technology) helps maintain a healthy glow.
