If you've considered laser skin resurfacing, dermabrasions or deep chemical peels, but hesitated because of the extended recovery time or anesthesia required, Pixel Perfect™ may be the right solution for you. It provides similar dramatic results through a superior technology with fewer risks and a much faster healing time.
Pixel Perfect™, the fractional rejuvenation procedure performed exclusively by Pixel Perfect™ laser technology from Alma Lasers®, lifts away years from your face and stimulates new collagen to grow. It improves your skin's texture and tone to fight fine lines, wrinkles, and even acne scars.
You'll see dramatic improvement in the tone and texture of your skin. Many patients choose Pixel Perfect™ because it:
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. Your doctor may also prescribe an over-the-counter pain medicine to make you more comfortable. These symptoms are a normal part of the healing process and should improve quickly.
Pixel Perfect™ 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 thermal 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.
The Pixel® technology in Pixel Perfect™ represents an evolved solution for skin rejuvenation, compared to earlier laser skin resurfacing techniques that involved more traumatic side effects.
