What are the benefits of Pixel CO2 laser skin resurfacing?
Results with the Pixel CO2 laser are typically quite dramatic - offering significant improvements in texture, tone, and overall appearance. Patients will often see marked reduction in fine and coarse lines, reduction of brown age spots, softening of coarse facial features, smoother tone, and a tighter appearance of the skin. Although individual results may vary, average patient improvements with this laser are usually considered quite profound.
Is treatment with the Pixel CO2 laser painful?
Patients are usually given a topical anesthetic cream along with oral pain medications and nerve blocks to numb the area to be treated. This regimen allows for the treatment to be comfortable with as little discomfort as possible. With the new iPixel laser treatments are now even more comfortable and fast - an entire face can be treated in as little as 5 minutes.
How long is the recovery process from Pixel CO2 laser?
The recovery process from Pixel CO2 laser is dramatically less than that of traditional laser resurfacing with either a CO2 or erbium:YAG laser. Recovery with this laser usually takes about 5-7 days (although individual results will vary) and includes moderate redness, swelling, and crusting. It is also possible for some pinkness or mild redness to persist for a slightly longer period of time as this is due to continued deep tissue repair.
