Pixel Laser Resurfacing
For skin that has acceded to the detrimental effects of aging, acne, sun exposure and skin stretched from pregnancy, Advanced Skin Fitness uses Pixel Laser Resurfacing treatment to reverse the apparent damage. Repairing the skin with this advanced technology not only improves the surface of the skin, it helps to reactivate the skin’s natural ability to keep the skin elastic, smooth and hydrated so that it exudes youth and health.
Improving the surface of the skin can be a comfortable, fast process with Pixel Laser Resurfacing. The procedure is non-invasive, safe and fast. Pixel Laser Resurfacing penetrates just deep to encourage the skin to gradually heal itself while resurfacing rough texture with ease.
Pixel Laser is effective at correcting fine lines, wrinkles, lesions, brown spots, pox marks, enlarged pores, acne blemishes and scars from surgery. It has a remarkable ability to improve conditions deep within the layers of the skin. Starting there could counteract the breakdown of collagen and other particular skin conditions that damage the skin. There are concerns that surround resurfacing procedures, so we address some common questions: What is Pixel Laser Resurfacing? How does Pixel Laser Resurfacing work? How long does the Pixel Laser treatment take? Is there downtime with Pixel Laser? Is there pain with Pixel Laser? Is Pixel Laser Resurfacing safe for all skin types?
What is Pixel Laser Resurfacing?
It’s an Erbium Yag Laser technology that contours and corrects imperfections in the skin caused by aging, the sun, acne and other environment factors by creating microscopic injuries in the skin.
Pixel Laser Resurfacing is a non-invasive procedure that works to correct scarring due to acne, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, revitalize and rejuvenate skin to a younger more vibrant appearance and contour loose damaged skin.
Skin that has damaged by the sun, stretched from pregnancy, pocked from acne, and ravaged by age will appear smoother and refreshed. The treatment is intended to penetrate the skin to a controlled depth creating microscopic injuries and promote the natural formation of collagen. Once the injuries have healed and the collagen has started to regenerate, the skin will tighten, become smoother and have reduced discoloration.
How does Pixel Laser Resurfacing work?
Pixel Laser Resurfacing creates tiny holes in the dermal layer of the skin to deliver heated energy into controlled depths. This process is designed to contour the skin, correct wrinkles, minimize discoloration and tighten loose skin.
The Pixel Laser Resurfacing incorporates a fractional laser technology that heats the skin through the direct distribution of energy. It then creates numerous and contained microscopic holes in small zones of the treatment area. The laser beams are able to penetrate the skin to a controlled depth, so they can treat the area without damaging the rest of the skin. While the area is being treated a small section of the tissue surrounding the openings is abraded and promotes the healing necessary to reduce and eliminate abnormal pigmentation, reduce pore size, minimize stretch marks and tighten the skin.
After the treatment the surface of the skin should appear smoother once the production of new collagen ensues. The area is treated by Pixel Laser to augment the recovery of the tissue. This process improves the outcome of the treatment and reduces any downtime.
How long does the Pixel Laser treatment take?
The treatment can take about 45minutes on average.
The procedure time can vary depending on the size of the treatment area and the severity of the skin damage. Most treatments can range between 15 and 45 minutes for each session. Patients should expect to see quick results and significant improvement in their skin. The collagen reproduction is gradual, so patients should notice continued improvement for up to 6 months. For maximum effectiveness you may want to have 4-6 treatments during those months.
Is there downtime with Pixel Laser?
Pixel Laser is non-surgical and requires minimum downtime.
The treatment is minimally-invasive and is accompanied by a cooling device, so patients don’t experience as much discomfort with the extensive healing afterwards as with other lasers. Some patients may notice a miniscule amount of swelling that subsides soon after the treatment has been performed. But it’s not unusual to experience redness and peeling for 5-7 days.
Is there pain with Pixel Laser?
For most patients, Pixel Laser Resurfacing is only mildly uncomfortable.
Pixel Laser resurfacing is minimally-invasive so patients won’t run the risk of suffering that results from surgical lacerations and deeper lasers such as a CO2. The treatment is very tolerable, with some patients describing it as a light snapping or the pop of a rubber band. The more intense the treatment is for more severely damaged skin and more obtrusive scars, the treatment may be less comfortable. This can happen especially to patients with more deeply embedded wrinkles and pervasive flaws and discolorations from acne and stretched skin.
For these patients the heat may be a more acute sensation. It all depends on how sensitive the patient is to the treatment. If it becomes too uncomfortable, the technician can use topical numbing cream or a cooling device to counteract the intense sensation of heat, most specifically cold air on the treated area. This should curb the discomfort and make the procedure a lot easier to endure.
Is Pixel Laser safe for all skin types?
Pixel RF Resurfacing works for most types of skin.
For patients who are ethnically diverse, skin color varies from fair to very dark, so they are often susceptible to hyperpigmentation, burns or minimal effectiveness when having certain laser treatments. Pixel Laser can be used on most skin types, including skin types 1 – 4.
