What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is an aesthetic treatment that lifts away years from your face. It can reverse the early signs of aging, and helps counteract years of sun damage or acne scarring. It provides noticeable results, often in as little as a single treatment. At the practice of Stuart Lipton, MD, we use Pixel skin resurfacing.
How does Pixel Skin Resurfacing work?
Pixel works by creating thousands of microscopic perforations, but the skin around each of these perforations remains intact. This allows your skin’s top layer to heal from the edge of these tiny holes very rapidly. Not only is healing time shortened considerably, but Pixel also comes with a lower risk of complications, as compared to traditional laser resurfacing.
Prior to the skin resurfacing treatment, a topical pain medicine will be prescribed to make you more comfortable. You can expect your skin to be flushed and red after the treatment – something similar to a sunburn.

How Many Pixel Resurfacing Treatments Will I Need?
While one Pixel laser resurfacing will show noticeable results, optimal results are achieved with a series of treatments. Generally, we recommend 3 treatments although this is dependent on the condition of your skin. The number of treatments required for best results really depends on the starting point and condition of your skin.
