As you age, the epidermis—the outer layer of your skin—becomes thinner, your skin loses strength and elasticity, and the natural skin pigments that provide protection from the sun begin to grow darker. This natural aging process, sun exposure, and lifestyle factors lead to the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. Northcoast Laser Cosmetics offers a revolutionary treatment method to combat the aging process without the need for surgical incisions. Check out this overview on Pixel Perfect™ technology for more information.
What is Pixel Perfect™ Technology?
Pixel Perfect™ technology is a fractional rejuvenation procedure designed to improve the texture of your skin while simultaneously stimulating the production of collagen growth for a revitalized, younger looking appearance.
Pixel Perfect™ technology offers a number of benefits. In addition to boosting your body’s own natural collagen production, Pixel Perfect™ laser treatments work to reduce and soften the look of fine lines, large pores, acne or trauma scars, sun damage, and areas of uneven pigmentation. Unlike other laser treatments, Pixel Perfect™ technology provides for little-to-no downtime and does not carry the same risks associated with CO2 laser treatments or chemical peels.
During the procedure, the Pixel Perfect™ laser creates thousands of microscopic perforations in the skin while leaving the skin surrounding the perforations completely intact. These perforations allow the top layer of your skin, also known as the epidermis, to heal from the edges at an extremely rapid rate. The procedure usually takes 30 minutes to complete and involves the use of topical anesthetic 30 minutes prior to treatment.
Most patients see improvement in the texture and pigment of their skin within seven to ten days following the procedure. The results of collagen stimulation may take several months to show signs. The results usually last several months and can be maintained by undergoing additional treatments every six to 12 months.
