Laser Texture and Toning
Fraxel laser treatments help your patients turn back the clock on wrinkles to reveal smoother skin in a painless procedure.
The Pixel 2940 improves the quality and texture of the dermis while it stimulates collagen regeneration, in a series of 3-6 fractional ablative laser treatments. Treatments are fast, with no downtime or side effects. Plus you have no additional mess or expense of dyes, gels or consumables. Used to restore the youthful appearance to wrinkled, sun damaged or acne scarred skin. With minimal or no downtime, and minimal pain and discomfort unlike other ablative fraxel modalities.
Indications for fraxel ( pixel ).
Skin resurfacing, treatment of wrinkles, epidermal nevi, skin tags, melisma, scars, including acne scars. Fractional ablative photothermolysis procedures target microscopic segments of the skin, leaving uninjured surrounding skin to facilitate rapid wound healing. To understand how it works, ablative and non-ablative lasers are designed to heat target tissues by selective photothermolysis. In fractional photothermolysis heat is imparted to the tissue in columns rather than in layers. These columns will be referred to as pixels, similar to the millions of tiny squares of digital photograph. Each pixel is produced by focusing the laser beam to achieve localized heating in the tissue. Averaging irradiance is kept low to avoid bulk heating. During treatment, a pattern of tiny thermal wounds is created without damaging the tissue surrounding each wound. The uninjured tissue acts as a reservoir to renew viable epidermal stem cells and transient amplifying cell populations. The pixel footprint and the number of passes. The pixel is designed to produce a matrix of tiny wounds surrounded by undamaged skin. Before reaching the skin, the Pixel beam passes through a micro lens that divides the beam into micro beams arranged in 7x7 or 9x9 patterns. When applied to the skin, these pixels encourage the growth of new cells and stimulate epidermal re-epithelialization to accelerate wound healing. The pixel can be used on the face, neck, hands, chest, stomach, with short healing time 5-7 days. The Pixel is safe and effective modality for minimally ablative fractional skin resurfacing.
3-5 about 2 to 4 weeks apart.
