What it is: Pixel skin resurfacing improves skin texture and tone, smoothes wrinkles, and diminishes brown spots.
What it does: Pixel skin resurfacing is based on the principle of microthermal treatment zones. The laser pulses create tiny ablative zones, removing the epidermis and upper dermis. The treatment then triggers the body’s natural healing process, stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin tissue.
Dr. Hanna’s Notes: I really like this treatment as it combines the best of both worlds. It provides the effective, dramatic results of ablative resurfacing treatments – without the prolonged healing period. Pixel skin resurfacing restores skin to its fresh, healthy state, generally allowing patients to resume their normal routine almost immediately.
Pixel skin resurfacing can be used on patients of most skin types anywhere on the body. Since this procedure spares healthy tissue, it can be performed on delicate skin areas, such as the face, neck, chest and hands.
