Pixel Laser Resurfacing

The Pixel Laser Surfacing procedure uses an Erbium Yag laser in resurfacing the skin. This treatment is state of the art, and is effective without the use of a CO2 laser and is without too much pain and downtime.

The Pixel laser technology tightens up skin on the neck, eyelids and works with overall skin quality by manipulating with the less than tight collagen fibers in the skin, while transitioning new cells. It indicates improvement in tone and texture of the skin, by reducing and almost removing discoloration due to age, UV ray exposure, while decreasing visible pore size, hyperpigmentation, and improving acne scars.

Usually completed in little under 20 minutes the results have been equal to those of traditional laser resurfacing techniques. The procedure prides itself on being performed with minimal downtime and discomfort, treatment protocols call for a series of 5 treatments, 2-4 weeks apart.

The technology is known as ablative fractional technology. Skin is treated by removing tissue via a dot Pixel hand-piece. Pixel technology is performed as a localized or "scattered" ablation vs. total ablation as seen in other technology. The Pixel treats a small fraction of the skin, in a particular manner, where in which the tiny pixelations of skin are lasered within the assigned zone. The Pixel allows about 65% of the lasered skin to remain "as is" and untreated around the Pixel therapy treated areas. The untouched skin may then act as a reservoir for the promotion of rapid healing to the newly lasered skin, reducing the downtime significantly.

Skin resurfacing occurs as the laser passes over the affected skin to remove damaged outer layers and, through heat, stimulates the production of collagen and new skin cells in the underlying layers.

The Pixel technology allows for a smoother, tighter, and more improved skin texture after just several sessions, if not visible in the first session. The technology has demonstrated a triggering of biological responses that may lead to collagen remodeling; responsible for the smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles, improvement of laxity and discoloration.

The Pixel technology has been shown to improve the appearance of difficult to treat acne and keloid scars with just several treatments. The improvement that has been seen with tissue laxity, whether around the mouth, eyelids, or the neck, it is an excellent alternative to botox for several skin types.


  • Lessens acne or surgical scars
  • Treats pigment related conditions
  • Evens out uneven skin tone and smoothes skin texture
  • Rejuvenates skin
  • Lessens wrinkles and fine lines
  • Reduces stretch marks

The Pixel laser resurfacing protocol has been shown to be so gentle that treatment can translate to those hard to treat areas once prohibitive by traditional resurfacing procedures, while being effective in such a short amount of time.
