Pixel® (Fractional Skin Treatment)
What is Pixel® (Fractional Skin Treatment)
Fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and acne scars can make skin appear aged and blemished. However, non-surgical Pixel® treatments can help achieve younger and healthier-looking skin with a comfortable in-office visit.
Understanding the Mechanism of Action of Pixel® (Fractional Skin Treatment)
Pixel® is a safe and FDA-approved skin resurfacing treatment that utilises precise laser energy to create micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. The micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process, leading to the production of new collagen fibers. As a result, the treated area becomes firmer, smoother, and more youthful in appearance. Pixel® treatment plans are personalised to address individual concerns and needs, ensuring optimal outcomes.
Who is a Suitable Candidate for Pixel® (Fractional Skin Treatment)?
Pixel® fractional resurfacing is an effective long-term solution for fine lines, wrinkles, and shallow acne scars on the face, with minimal downtime. It is generally safe and suitable for most skin types, textures, and tones. However, a consultation with a healthcare professional is necessary before treatment to determine if you are a suitable candidate.
Duration of Pixel® Treatment
The duration of your Pixel® treatment can vary from 15 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the size of the area being treated. Since fractional lasers target small areas of the skin with each laser pulse, the treatment may take a bit longer. However, this approach ensures a more comfortable experience for you. Prior to the treatment, you will be asked to arrive at the clinic approximately 1 hour early to allow the topical numbing agent to take effect and make the procedure pain-free.
Pixel® Fractional Skin Treatment Results
Pixel® fractional skin treatment typically yields noticeable improvements in skin tone, texture, and appearance within a week after treatment. Although some patients may see initial results after a single session, most require 2-5 treatments to achieve optimal age-defying results. The new collagen growth stimulated by the treatment continues for up to 6 months after the final session.
Recovery and Downtime for Pixel® (Fractional Skin Treatment)
Recovery time and downtime for Pixel® are relatively short compared to traditional resurfacing lasers. Since Pixel® only targets the skin’s surface, it promotes faster healing. Unlike traditional lasers that can cause rawness and swelling, Pixel® causes little or no downtime. Patients may feel a mild warming sensation during treatment but can resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure.
