Definition - What does Pixel Laser mean?
A pixel laser is an FDA-approved resurfacing laser that can significantly enhance the patient’s skin appearance without considerable downtime or discomfort. This laser is mainly designed to address skin issues such as sun-damaged skin, fine lines, resistant pigmentation (either discoloration or melisma), acne scars, rough skin and large pores. Its application is not limited to the face, but it can be used on all body parts as required, like the neck, hands, arms and chest.
TheConsultation explains Pixel Laser
A pixel laser is an erbium fractional resurfacing laser that directs a small matrix of 7x7 or 9x9 laser beams onto the surface of the skin. These laser beams create microscopic wounds within the epidermis, stimulating new collagen production without affecting the surrounding skin. As a result, the skin in the treated area is improved in tone and texture. The whole procedure is almost painless. Usually, one to five sessions are needed for best outcomes, depending on the skin condition and the targeted body location. The first signs of results are visible from the first week, but, as it is an ongoing resurfacing process, patients see the end results after about four to six months.
