About the Procedure
Frequently Asked Questions
The iPixel laser is a specialized treatment aimed at enhancing skin quality and appearance. This highly sought-after procedure targets fine lines, scars, sun-damaged skin, pigmentation, and pore size. By creating tiny perforations called pixels, the laser penetrates the upper skin layers, causing minimal injury to only a fraction of the skin. As a result, recovery is faster, and downtime is minimized. The treatment stimulates new collagen production and sheds the outer skin layer, leading to improved skin texture and quality.
To prepare for the treatment, patients should avoid sun exposure and artificial tanning for 3-4 weeks and discontinue the use of Retin-A products for 2 weeks. On the day of the procedure, patients should refrain from wearing makeup or skincare products. During the treatment, patients may experience slight discomfort and mild warmth, akin to a sunburn sensation. Recovery time varies based on the treatment's depth and intensity, ranging from a few hours to a few days. A temporary grid pattern may appear on the skin, resolving within 1-2 weeks.
How Long Will The Results Last?
Results are permanent, and may continue to improve over 6 months. However, natural skin aging persists due to factors like sun exposure, weight changes, and gravity. Maintenance requires periodic touch-ups, daily sunscreen, and diligent skincare.
What Can the iPixel Laser Treat?
The iPixel laser enhances skin quality and tightness, effectively treating age spots, sun spots, acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks, spider veins, and reducing pore size.
How Do I Take Care of My Skin After Treatment?
Following the treatment, utilize a mild cleanser and moisturizer for your skin while avoiding harsh irritants. Refrain from rubbing, exfoliating, or scrubbing the treated areas. Remember to apply sunblock (minimum SPF 30) to protect the treated area.
