Magic of the Laser Pixel

8:40 PM

The Pixel laser is a resurfacing laser that can dramatically improve one's skin without significant downtime or discomfort. This laser is ideally suited for the treatment of sun damage, fine lines, resistant pigmentation, acne scars, roughened textures, and enlarged pores. It may also help reduce fine lines and skin laxity on the face, neck, chest and arms and hands with little to no downtime.

With the pixel technology the laser is delivered in columns rather than layers with the columns being referred to ‘pixels’ like in a digital photograph. Pixel treatment is based on the principle of micro thermal treatment zones. The laser pulse creates uniform tiny ‘pixels’ of treated zones, removing the epidermis and upper dermis, but leaving surrounding tissues untouched and intact. The treated pixels trigger the body’s natural healing process stimulating the growth of new healthy skin tissue and increased collagen formation, with the small bridges of untreated areas acting as a reservoir for more effective and rapid tissue healing and collagen production. The end result is new healthier, smoother tissues in place of skin imperfections.
The safety of pixel makes it a suitable laser to treat the eyelid areas as well as the face and the rest of the body.

Laser Pixel is one of the revolutionary skin treatments from that offers you the chance to look younger, healthier and let your inner radiance free. The laser treatment can clear years of sun damage such as age spots, fine lines and wrinkles. Pixel can also shrink the appearance of pores and smooth out acne scars, giving you the soft and flawless skin of years gone by. In other words, Pixel can help transform blotchy, spotted and pockmarked skin into the radiant glow of one’s youth.

Pixel  skin fractional resurfacing is based on the principle of microthermal treatment zones. The laser pulses create tiny holes in the skin, removing the epidermis and upper dermis. The treatment then triggers the body’s natural healing process; stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin tissue from the edges of the microscopic hole.
The Pixel treats small zones of the skin, leaving surrounding tissue untouched and intact. These large unaffected areas act as a reservoir for more effective and rapid tissue healing and collagen production. The end result: new, healthier, smoother tissue in place of
skin imperfections.

Laser Pixel to Skin
Treatment info
Pixel laser skin resurfacing works with the idea that the body will heal itself with new, smoother healthy skin. Using the principle of microthermal treatment zones, laser pulses make microscopic holes in the skin’s surface. This action stimulates the body to begin healing the epidermis and upper dermis layers, promoting the growth of new, young skin.
The pixel laser procedure addresses small areas of the face at a time with the surrounding skin left undamaged. The untouched healthy skin surrounding the treated area helps promote quick and effective healing and increased collagen production. The result is younger looking skin in place of aged, damaged skin. The more times the treatment is done, the better the results.
No special care is necessary before a pixel laser appointment. However, once in the physician’s office, patients are usually given a topical anesthetic to reduce the discomfort of the procedure. The anesthetic takes 30 to 60 minutes to take effect, and the patient face will be cleansed and dried.
During the procedure, patients may experience a slight warming sensation similar to sunburn in the area being treated. Because of the nature of the laser, discomfort is minimal and less analgesia is required.
After treatment, patients may experience some redness, which fades quickly over the next few days. It is important to take care when cleansing the face while healing, as the skin will be delicate. Avoid using scrubs or harsh ingredients on the skin until all redness is gone.
Sun protection is critical after pixel resurfacing. A broad-spectrum sun block of SPF 30 or higher should be worn and reapplied several times throughout the day. Keeping the skin hydrated will aid in healing, so wearing a good moisturizer is also recommended.
The treated skin will be fragile for the first 3-4 days. Special care needs to be taken when cleansing the face during this time. Avoid using facial scrubs, washcloths or buff puffs.
The treated skin will look better within days following the treatment and results should steadily improve over the next few months.
It is imperative to use a broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen every day to prevent further damage. Your consulting nurse can give you advice and start you on a suitable skin care regime for your skin type and requirements.
The Pixel is the next generation of laser skin resurfacing technology that improves:
·         Fine lines
·         Skin tone
·         Brown spots
·         Pore appearance
·         Acne scars
·         Surgical and traumatic scars

Pixel laser to provide textural and skin tone improvement for their patients. This device creates thousands of tiny perforations in the skin, similar to pore sizes. This procedure is called “fractional laser resurfacing.” The skin around each of these perforations remains intact, and the epidermis rapidly heals from the edge of these tiny holes. (ie: only a “fraction” of the skin is resurfaced each time) The patient who undergoes a Pixel treatment will only be red for one or two days for the procedure. Makeup can be applied immediately, so there is really no downtime, which is very attractive to most patients. Furthermore, hypopigmentation has not been described with this laser. The only “downside” of the procedure is that it must be repeated several times for optimal results because only a portion of the total skin surface is treated each during each pass. 

The settings of the Pixel laser dictate the down time. The best results with Pixel are achieved with more aggressive settings on the laser and with stacking (repeated pulses of the laser on the same spot). At higher settings, the skin of the face looks and feels rough and also has a bronze appearance for a few days. During that first 3 or 4 days, most people are self conscious about their appearance. After the third or fourth day, the roughness and bronzing begin to resolve and are usually gone after a week.
