Pixel CO2 Laser Resurfacing
This revolutionary treatment can provide a dramatic result after just one treatment with minimal risk or downtime. For those patients with medium to deep wrinkling who wish to avoid surgical procedures but desire a youthful, refreshed skin tone, Pixel® CO2 skin resurfacing is the ideal choice. Years ago, CO2 (carbon dioxide) skin resurfacing fell out of favor due to the treatment's long downtimes and risk of complications. Now with the Pixel CO2, you again see the fabulous results only available with CO2 but with a considerable reduction in downtime. In fact, with Pixel CO2, the average patient will only see about 2 to 4 days of minor downtime.
With the Pixel CO2, laser light passes through the patented Pixel® micro optics lens array to penetrate the skin with tiny thermal channels. This creates an ablative and thermal effect in only these channels — a micro-injury — without disturbing the surrounding tissue. The tissue surrounding the micro-injury sites (about 15-20 percent of the treatment area) starts the process of healing. The intact, undamaged skin around the treatment site is what promotes quicker healing for a faster recovery. You will see a dramatic improvement in the tone and texture of your skin.
This procedure works well to shrink the appearance of pores, fill in acne scars, blend uneven pigmentation, clear sun-damage skin, and smooths fine lines and wrinkles. It is so precise that it is safe on delicate skin like the neck, chest, and hands.
