What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
In laser skin resurfacing
a laser is used to remove areas of damaged or wrinkled skin,
layer by layer. The procedure is most commonly used to minimize
the appearance of fine lines, especially around the mouth
and the eyes. However, it is also effective in treating facial
scars or areas of uneven pigmentation. Laser resurfacing may
be performed on the whole face or in specific regions. Often,
the procedure is done in conjunction with another cosmetic
operation, such as a facelift or eyelid surgery.
Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing with Pixel Perfect™
Dr. Asaadi is pleased to offer a new advance in laser skin resurfacing, with the Pixel Perfect™ CO2 Fractional Laser solution. The Fraxel Co2 Pixel Perfect™ process can help combat the effects of aging and sun damage on your skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, repair acne scarring, blend uneven skin pigmentation, and improve your overall complexion. With Fraxel Co2 Pixel Perfect™, you can revitalize your skin, dramatically improving tone and texture, with noticeable results in as little as one treatment. Fraxel Co2 Pixel Perfect™ offers a no-injection, no-surgery approach to restoring your face to a youthful, healthy glow.
How is Fraxel Co2 Pixel Perfect™ laser skin resurfacing different?
The Fraxel Co2 Pixel Perfect™ process combines the same excellent results from traditional laser technologies, with a higher level of patient comfort and significantly less downtime. Fraxel Co2 Pixel Perfect™ uses a CO2 fractional laser, which penetrates the skin in microscopic treatment areas, without damaging the surrounding tissue. The laser affects only a small fraction of the skin’s surface area, while treating the entire deeper layer of skin, resulting in quicker healing and faster recovery. The microscopic perforations made by the laser start the body’s own natural healing process, promoting the growth of new collagen, which helps the skin to tighten and firm. Fractional laser technology provides more precision and control, with patients experiencing less redness, discomfort and downtime.
Fraxel Co2 Pixel Perfect™ Skin laser skin resurfacing treatment
For most patients, laser skin resurfacing with the Fraxel Co2 Pixel Perfect™ system takes less than 30 minutes, with noticeable results in just one treatment. During the procedure and immediately following, patients may experience a sensation similar to sunburn on the treated area. This is normal and should improve quickly. Dr. Asaadi may recommend an over-the-counter pain medication, if necessary, to make you more comfortable. Because there are no injections and no surgery, patients can expect fast healing, with little downtime.
After your Fraxel Co2 Pixel Perfect™ Skin laser skin resurfacing treatment
With Fraxel Co2 Pixel Perfect™ laser skin resurfacing, your skin will look healthier, younger and more radiant. Just one treatment should provide excellent, noticeable results to even your skin tone and reduce scarring, lines and wrinkles, while enhancing your overall complexion. Results can last several months or longer. Patients may elect to have a touch-up procedure after six to twelve months in order to maintain a healthy glow.
