For many, dark spots, acne scarring, sun spots, blemishes on the skin can all make someone appear older. With society placing an emphasis on youth and appearing young to get ahead in life, one of the easy methods a patient can choose to achieve this youthful appearance is I-Pixel Skin Resurfacing.
Primarily, I-Pixel Skin Resurfacing is used for treating sun damage, fine lines, discolored pigmentation, acne scars, rough skin textures, and enlarged pores. In addition, it may also aid in reducing wrinkles and skin laxity located on the neck, face, arms, chest, and hands. This can all be done quickly and easily.
Unlike traditional resurfacing lasers, the pixel laser focuses on tiny areas of the skin rather than a large area as a whole. The idea behind pixel skin resurfacing is that because the laser is only interacting with small areas of skin, the amount of recovery time is also limited, which makes this treatment both effective and efficient for those patients who have little time to wait around in recovery. Besides reducing recovery time, anesthetic cream and gels are not used, which means there is less mess to deal with afterward.
Essentially, what occurs is that the laser punctures the skin in tiny amounts to damage it. This, in turn, promotes the healthy skin around it to begin repairing the damaged skin with new collagen. This not only makes the new skin smooth, but it also allows it to share the same color as the skin surrounding it. Patients report feeling a heat sensation, but that is all, making the treatment comfortable and easy.
While patients can usually detect a significant improvement in their skin after the first treatment, additional treatments are often advised to yield the best results. Normally, a patient can expect to have two to five treatments based on the severity of the skin blemishes and the location in which the blemishes occur.
After a week of undergoing treatment, patients usually report a significant difference in the texture of their skin. They find that it is smoother than before. They also report that their skin tone has lost much of the displeasing color and is matching their normal skin tone. After a few more treatments, patients note improvements in the laxity of their skin as well as a reduction in the fine lines of their face or wherever those lines were located. Because the collagen of the skin continues to heal, patients can see further improvements for the next four to six months following their last treatment.
Although I-Pixel Skin Resurfacing can essentially be used in any location on the body, most patients tend to use it on their face, hands, chest, shoulders, and back area. Essentially, any area that sees a lot of sunlight and receives those pesky sunspots in response are the most frequent areas treated. After a few treatments, their skin becomes youthful, brighter, and healthy looking.
