Pixel™ Fractional skin resurfacing is an advanced skin care procedure used to restore a youthful appearance * to wrinkled, prematurely aged, scarred or sun damaged skin. At CosMedics in Edmonton we offer Pixel™ which is the next generation of laser skin resurfacing technology that improves:
- fine lines
- skin tone
- brown spots
- pore appearance
- acne scars
- surgical and traumatic scars
Pixel™ skin resurfacing is based on the principle of creating micro-thermal treatment zones. It allows the non-target skin tissue surrounding the zones to trigger rapid healing, stimulating collagen production (the body’s natural healing process) and the growth of new, healthy skin tissue. Since Pixel™ skin resurfacing spares healthy tissue, it can be performed on delicate skin areas, such as the face, neck, chest and hands.
This process causes a slight tightening effect in the skin, which restores youthful vitality *. Pixel™ skin resurfacing can also be used to treat acne scars, and other skin imperfections. It is a recommended treatment to be used in conjunction with Photofacials, Clinical Facials and cosmetic procedures such as Botox and Dermal Fillers,to greatly enhance their effectiveness.
Most patients who have experienced Pixel skin resurfacing refer to the treatment as much more comfortable than conventional laser skin resurfacing.
