Pixel Your Way to Better Skin
- Posted on: Aug 15 2019
Fractional skin resurfacing with CO2 lasers is nothing new. It has been around for a decade or so and delivers good results. The problem has always been recovery. These fractional resurfacing treatments involved a fairly significant recovery in some early models.
Those days are over, because there’s a new CO2 laser in town and Dr. Lipton has it.
Dr. Lipton now offers skin resurfacing with a new CO2 laser developed by Alma, a respected company in the aesthetic equipment-manufacturing arena. It’s called the Pixel Perfect laser. This new CO2 technology delivers the strength and results of the previous CO2 lasers, but with one-fifth the downtime.
In addition to less recovery time, the Pixel Perfect laser has more improvements. It is effective on light and dark skin tones. And it can be used on the face, neck, abdomen (stretch marks), and décolletage.
Dr. Lipton feels this new Pixel fractional resurfacing delivers results that are similar, but preferable, to chemical peels, erbium lasers, Yag lasers, and other new technologies.
Advantages for our Lewisville patients
Alma’s Pixel Perfect is great for our patients. These are advantages to improving your skin with Pixel Perfect:
- Great for mild to medium wrinkling
- Quicker treatment times
- Little or no downtime
- Safe and effective
- Beyond the face, it can be used on the chest, neck, and hands
- No anesthesia necessary
- Reduced risk of complications
With former CO2 lasers, recovery time was the issue. Plus, the recovery was relatively uncomfortable. Those recovery periods lasted up to four weeks and patients really had to avoid any sun exposure whatsoever. That’s hard to do in sunny Texas. With Pixel Perfect, we’ve found recovery times for our patients are just a couple days or less. What a difference!
