The Pixel 2940 Erbium Laser is an FDA-approved resurfacing laser that can dramatically improve your skin’s appearance without the downtime and discomfort usually required with traditional resurfacing. A typical patient would receive three to five Pixel treatments. During each one, the laser creates thousands of microscopic spots known as “pixels.” Because only about 20% of the surface area is affected during each treatment, this technology combines the best of both worlds – the great and proven results of a traditional ablative laser with no pain and no downtime.
Think of your skin like a digital photograph which can be repaired pixel by pixel. The laser beam passes through the patented PIXEL micro optics lens and penetrates the skin. It creates an ablative and thermal effect that stimulates the skin to produce collagen while tightening and improving its texture.
Depending on the degree of damage to your skin and desired results, most patients require 3 – 5 treatments spaced 2 – 4 weeks apart.
Patients can expect to see improvement in the color, texture and quality of the skin within a week or two after the treatment; however, more significant improvement will be seen after the series of treatments is complete.
There is virtually minimal, if any, discomfort during the procedure. Rarely, a mild burning sensation may occur.
