What is skin resurfacing?
Pixel Laser Benefits
Compared to many other skin resurfacing procedures, the Pixel can provide;
- Dramatic results
- Fewer risks
- Shorter recovery times
- No need for anesthesia.
Who is it for?
Anyone who is in good health and seeking improvement of aging and/or sun-damaged skin may be a candidate for Pixel laser resurfacing. Pixel can be performed on all skin types and can improve the overall tone and texture of the skin as well as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, enlarged pores, and uneven pigmentation.
The procedure is a particularly good procedure for treating melasma, a common skin disorder characterized by a dark discoloration of the skin. While this disorder can affect anyone, young women with brownish skin tones are at the greatest risk, as well as pregnant women, women taking birth control pills, and women taking hormone replacement therapy during menopause. The condition is also linked to sun exposure and is often seen in tropical climates.
Treatment Length & Process
Dr. Dayan performs Pixel laser skin resurfacing procedures at his Chicago office. Treatment times average twenty to thirty minutes. The Pixel laser works by stimulating new collagen growth in the skin. This improves scars and other imperfections and tightens the skin to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles for a dramatically rejuvenated appearance. Multiple treatments may be needed to achieve optimal results.Recovery Time
Recovery after Pixel treatment is much quicker than with other laser skin resurfacing procedures, dermabrasions and deep chemical peels. Patients may experience redness or a flushed appearance similar to a sunburn for up to forty-eight hours after treatment. Work and other normal activities can typically be resumed within twenty-four to forty-eight hours. Pixel laser skin resurfacing is a safe procedure with minimal risks or complications.
