Pixel is one of the revolutionary FDA-approved skin treatments. The Pixel® Erbium-YAG laser is a new generation of skin resurfacing lasers with the proven effectiveness of ablative (deeper) skin resurfacing with the comfort and convenience of a non-invasive approach. The Pixel Erbium is a pre-programmed laser beam that passes through the patented Pixel micro optics lens and penetrates your skin.
In fractional laser technology, the laser beam is split into a series of dots in a grid pattern, just like the pixels on a digital camera. The laser penetrates the skin deep into the small spots, which produces a wound healing response and new collagen formation whilst leaving normal skin between the dots. This means that the skin remains intact without an open wound and is able to recover very quickly. It creates a micro-injury, or an ablative and thermal effect while leaving the surrounding tissue intact. The micro-injuries begin the process of healing through collagen growth and collagen remodelling. This, in turn, tightens the skin and improves the overall texture and tone. Improvement in your skin occurs in a two-fold process as the laser removes damaged tissue at the surface of your skin and also generates heat within the dermis to stimulate collagen. This fractional Laser treatment can clear years of sun damage such as age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, acne and chicken pox scars.
