What is the iPixel laser?
The iPixel laser is a fractional ablative laser that works by creating microcolumns of perforations in your skin, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This allows for rapid healing and stimulates new collagen and elastin production, which improves the volume and texture of your skin, as well as minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As collagen remodels, scars begin to fade, and your skin recovers its youthful radiance.
What can you expect?
The treatment comes with little discomfort but expects a slight heat sensation during the procedure, similar to a sunburn. No anesthesia is required. While the length of the treatment will vary for each individual, sessions will take between 30 minutes to an hour with a course of 3 to 5 treatments recommended, one every four to six weeks, for best results.
What are the benefits?
iPixel is a particularly effective laser treatment for individuals with scars from acne, as well as active acne, enlarged pores, rough skin textures, hyperpigmentation, and photodamaged skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and stretch marks. This treatment can be performed on any skin type. This treatment is fantastic for mild to medium wrinkling with little downtime and can be combined with a number of other treatments. A fully ablative laser can also be used for deeper penetration.
