How does it work?
Pixel skin resurfacing is based on the principal of micro thermal treatment zones. The laser pulses create tiny ablative zones, removing the epidermis and upper dermis. The treatment then triggers the body’s natural healing process, stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin tissue. Because only small zones of skin are treated the surrounding tissue is left untouched and intact. These large unaffected areas act as a reservoir for more effective and rapid tissue healing and collagen production. The bottom line is new, healthier, smoother tissue in place of skin imperfections.
What are the side effects?
Your laser specialist will determine the best treatment plan for your needs. Generally treatment involves a course of 4 sessions, at 4 week intervals. Immediately after treatment you may feel a tingling sensation similar to sun burn for a very short period. You may experience slight swelling for a day or two although most people do not. There is usually 2 to 4 day’s of redness which can be controlled with terprolene. Redness can be reduced significantly by using terprolene prior to the treatment. As new skin replaces dead tissue, your skin will flake, a sign that healing is under way. Your skin will look better immediately, and will steadily improve over the next few months.
Does it Hurt?
The treatment itself does not hurt. Pixel skin resurfacing is far more comfortable than conventional laser skin resurfacing. Depending on clients lifsetyles and commitments it may be necessary to plan treatments due to redness of the skin after the treatment. This can however be covered with mineral based makeup and one can resume most normal activity almost immediatley after treatment.
