Fractional Ablative Skin Resurfacing

What is Fractional Ablative Skin Resurfacing?

From “Bulk Ablation” to “Localized Ablation”

- Treat small "fraction" of skin

- Leave intact, undamaged skin around each treated area to act as a reservoir for rapid healing

- Re-epitheliazation of treatment zones occurs rapidly,  significant reduction in risk of infection.

Pixel 2940nm laser treats about 20% of the skin

Each pixel spot within the spot size receives optimal energy – more effective treatment

 

How the Pixel works?

During the Pixel fractional treatment, only a portion of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, leaving small “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much quicker and enables patients to get back to their normal life styles sooner

 

Pixel – The Physiology

Epidermal repair occurs via keratinocyte migration from the undamaged healing centers at the margins of each Pixel. The short migratory paths for the keratinocyte lead to rapid epidermal regeneration (<24 hours). Necrosis epidermal debris rises through the epidermis to form the microcrusts  which slough 5 to 10 days after treatment
