Pixel Perfect treatments are safe and effective, without injections or surgery. You can expect your skin to be flushed and red after the treatment—something similar to a sunburn. These symptoms are a normal part of the healing process and depending on which Pixel technology we use, should improve within approximately three days.
How It’s Different
Pixel Perfect™ stands out from other skin rejuvenation options because you get great results from a single treatment in days. In contrast, traditional laser skin resurfacing can take 30 days or longer for recovery.
How Does Pixel Perfect Work?
It works by creating thousands of microscopic perforations, but the skin around each of these perforations remains intact. This allows your skin’s top layer to heal from the edge of these tiny holes very rapidly, which significantly improves your complexion.
In more detail, the Pixel® laser light passes through patented optics to penetrate the skin with tiny channels, only as deep as a few sheets of paper. In each channel it creates a micro-injury, without disturbing the surrounding tissue.
These micro-injury sites (about 15–20 percent of the treatment area) start the process of healing. As collagen remodels, skin tightens and scars improve. The intact, undamaged skin around the treatment site is what promotes quicker healing for a faster recovery.
Great Results, Faster Healing
The Pixel® technology in Pixel Perfect™ represents an evolved solution for laser skin rejuvenation, compared to earlier laser skin resurfacing techniques that involved more traumatic side effects.
