Can A Laser Treatment Help You Regain Your Youthful Glow?
Yes – if it’s Pixel RF!
Pixel RF is one of the revolutionary skin treatments from Alma Lasers that offers you the chance to look younger, healthier and let your inner radiance free. The laser treatment can clear years of sun damage such as age spots, fine lines and wrinkles. Pixel RF can also shrink the appearance of pores and smooth out acne scars and stretch marks, giving you the soft and flawless skin of years gone by. In other words, Pixel RF can help transform blotchy, spotted and pockmarked skin into the radiant glow of one’s youth.
How Does it Work?
Pixel skin fractional resurfacing is based on the principle of microthermal treatment zones. The laser pulses create tiny holes in the skin, removing the epidermis and upper dermis. The treatment then triggers the body’s natural healing process; stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin tissue from the edges of the microscopic hole.
The Pixel treats small zones of the skin, leaving surrounding tissue untouched and intact. These large unaffected areas act as a reservoir for more effective and rapid tissue healing and collagen production. The end result: new, healthier, smoother tissue in place of skin imperfections.
Most commonly, clients feel some slight warmth with the pulse of the laser and may experience a sunburn-like sensation afterward (3-4 hours) that is easily neutralised with a gentle moisturiser.
On average, there are about 7-10 days of downtime associated with this treatment. Some redness usually appears immediately following the procedure. This usually subsides within a few hours. It is recommended to apply ice-packs to the treated area immediately and for the rest of the day.
The treated skin will be fragile for the first 3-4 days. Special care needs to be taken when cleansing the face during this time. Avoid using facial scrubs, washcloths or buff puffs.
The treated skin will look better within days following the treatment and results should steadily improve over the next few months.
It is imperative to use a broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen every day to prevent further damage. Your consulting nurse can give you advice and start you on a suitable skin care regime for your skin type and requirements.
