How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
Pixel is a fractional laser, which means it only targets a small fraction of the skin’s surface area to allow faster healing. The laser creates microscopic channels into the skin, penetrating only about as deep as a few sheets of paper. The tiny channels trigger collagen development and the growth of new skin cells. As the old, dull layers of skin peel away, you will see newer, more radiant skin cells that have come to the surface.
How Many Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments Will I Need?
We assess the number of laser skin resurfacing treatments you may need based on your skin concerns. We recommend three to four sessions for pigmentation and skin texture issues. Lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, and acne scarring may require up to five. We will schedule your sessions three to four weeks apart.
What are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing can produce dramatic results, removing years of aging, sun damage, and uneven texture. Pixel laser skin resurfacing gives you the benefits of laser treatment with less downtime, including:
- Brighter, more radiant skin
- Smoother skin texture
- Diminished lines and wrinkles
- Fading of acne scars
- Decreased hyperpigmentation
- Firmer, tighter skin
The best benefit of laser skin resurfacing might be how long it lasts. You can keep your results for three to five years. After that, you may choose to have another round of resurfacing to maintain or refresh your results.
