Pixel laser resurfacing can be effective in treating scars resulting from severe acne.
Pixel laser resurfacing is a type of laser skin treatment used for cosmetic rejuvenation. It differs from other types of laser resurfacing because the recovery period is not as long or obvious. While some mild redness is common after a pixel laser resurfacing treatment, it is not as extensive as with more traditional laser treatments and typically goes away in a day or so.
Pixel laser resurfacing can be used to reduce pore size.
Like other forms of laser rejuvenation, pixel laser resurfacing tightens the skin, reduces or removes skin discolorations, shrinks pores, and reduces the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks. The laser works in two ways: it removes the outer layers of skin that are damaged and it stimulates the skin to produce collagen. Collagen production smoothes fine lines and wrinkles so well that it is a suitable replacement for Botox injections.

An erbium yag laser is used for pixel laser rejuvenation. It uses fractional ablative technology, where small pieces of skin are removed in a random pattern. Approximately 35% of the skin surface is covered by the laser. The untouched areas accelerate the healing of the treated points.
The pixel laser resurfacing process is generally considered painless, although some individuals may experience mild discomfort during the procedure. After that, the skin will be slightly irritated, similar to a sunburn. The doctor will likely recommend not wearing makeup and avoiding sunlight for a few days. Once normal activities resume, it’s important to protect your skin with sunscreen.

Pixel laser resurfacing results include firmer, firmer, smoother skin and a more even complexion. The results of this type of laser resurfacing may be apparent after a treatment. For best results, treatments are typically scheduled in a set of five, with a wait of two to four weeks between each session.
As laser resurfacing processes become less invasive, with shorter recovery times and less redness and irritation, they are becoming more popular. There is a growing tendency to turn to cosmetic rejuvenation while you are young, rather than waiting and having more invasive plastic surgery. Laser resurfacing at a younger age can reduce or eliminate many of the most common signs of aging, including fine lines, deep creases, dark spots and broken capillaries. Pixel laser resurfacing can be used on the neck, chest and hands, in addition to the face, areas that commonly show signs of aging.
