The Pixel laser is an FDA-approved resurfacing laser that creates small microscopic wounds within the skin that heal and stimulate new collagen production that in turn tightens and smooths out the skin's surface.
Most patients see a significant improvement in the appearance of their skin after the first treatment. Depending upon the condition of your skin and the body location being treated, the average patient requires two to five treatment sessions for best results.
Most patients see improvements in skin texture, tone, and pigmentation within a week of treatment. More significant improvements in fine lines and skin laxity are noted after several sessions. The formation of new collagen continues after the last treatment session so continued improvements are usually seen up to four to six months after the last treatment.
The Pixel laser treatment is very well tolerated and has almost no discomfort - a significant advantage over some other fractional resurfacing devices. A mild burning sensation may occur towards the end of treatment but this is usually very mild in nature and lasts only a short while (30 minutes to three hours). Most patients experience mild to severe swelling post treatment. Swelling is typically gone within 3 days. Healing can take anywhere from 3-7 days, with some redness (similar to a sunburn) lasting longer. You will be given a detailed post care sheet with home care products to assist in the healing process.
The Pixel is safe to use on virtually any area of the body. It is most commonly used to treat sun damage and aging changes on the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. It may at times be used in conjunction with other lasers depending upon the condition of your skin. Your skin looks brighter, fresher and more relaxed within a few weeks of the procedure.
