If you have always wanted to undergo skin laser resurfacing, dermabrasions or chemical peels to get rid of scars or wrinkles, but were hesitant about doing it because of its long recovery period or anesthesia, you need not worry anymore.

This is because of the latest technology in skin resurfacing at our Houston med spa, pixel skin resurfacing is the solution for you. Pixel skin resurfacing helps in removing all your scars and wrinkles, with a fast recovery time so that you can quickly return to your daily activities.

The procedure

Pixel skin resurfacing is a skin resurfacing treatment using superior technology with fewer risks and a faster healing time. Here, an Erbium Yag laser is used for skin resurfacing instead of a CO2 laser.

It is possible to tighten skin on the neck and eyelids with pixel laser resurfacing and improve overall skin quality by inducing collagen modeling in the skin. This helps in improving the tone and texture of the skin while reducing any discoloration in the skin due to age and UV ray exposure.

Besides all this, laser skin surfacing also helps in decreasing visible pore size, improving acne scars, smoothening fine lines and wrinkles, improving laxity and in decreasing hyperpigmentation.

Laser skin resurfacing

Basically, a dot pixel handpiece is used for removing small fractions of the skin in a localized ablation, and not a total ablation like other technologies. Here, the tiny pixelations of skin are lasered in the assigned zone in such a way that 65% of the lasered skin around the pixel therapy treated regions remains untreated.

The reason this is done is because this untouched skin acts as a reservoir by promoting the rapid healing of the skin. this helps in improving the recovery time of laser skin rejuvenation so that you can quickly return to your daily routine.

Reduce even stretch marks

Pixel laser resurfacing helps reduce the difficult to treat acne and keloid scars while rejuvenating skin. Even stretch marks are considerably reduced after a few sessions of pixel laser facial resurfacing.

Unlike other laser skin resurfacing techniques, pixel laser resurfacing is gentle on the skin and is much more effective in a shorter span of time. Pixel skin resurfacing is completed within 20 minutes and gives results similar to that of traditional laser facial resurfacing techniques. However, you usually need to undergo a series of 5 treatments given at intervals of 2-4 weeks for complete skin rejuvenation Houston.
