Have you been living a life trying to cover your acne scars with heavy make-up, applying different exfoliating creams and solutions but don’t seem to be helping you? Afraid of using Laser treatments because of its ablative properties and long down time duration? The battle against acne scars has been going on for generations now and boy, was that not ending!

Also, a lot of Korean and China brand machines have been proliferating the aesthetic market, unfortunately claiming to give the desired effect at a lower cost when in fact it is really not the case. With each different laser, there are potentially different results, which can lead to inaccuracy and discouragement to the masses if the laser being used is not clarified.  This is why it is important to do research on the brand of the machine, background of the clinic and experience of the operator or the dermatologist.

With Skin House Beauty and Laser Clinic’s  latest offering, treatment for deep acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles need not be expensive.  Our Pixel Fractional CO2 Laser  (10600 nm wavelength) is different from Pixel Erbium with 2940 nm wavelength that other clinics offer.  What we are using is a medical grade, stand alone unit that is more effective in giving results. Do check the photo of the machine for easy reference.

Allow me to show first how Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment works. From the word “Fractional” and “Pixel”, the laser light passes through the patented Pixel® micro optics lens array to penetrate the skin with tiny thermal channels.

 

The Fractional CO2 Effect

ü  It creates an ablative and thermal effect in only these channels – a micro-injury – without disturbing the surrounding tissue.

ü  These micro-injury sites (about 15-20 percent of the treatment area) start the process of healing.

ü  The intact, undamaged skin around the treatment site is what promotes quicker healing for a faster recovery.

 

Pixel CO2 ITEDFractional CO2 Skin Resurfacing treatments have been widely used nowadays since unlike topical creams, laser skin resurfacing works deep in the underlying tissues reduce the appearance of acne scarring. This popular and long accepted technology has normally been ablative; meaning that some portion of the top layer of skin is deliberately damaged. Some people, however, wish to avoid all ablative procedures but with Pixel Perfect skin resurfacing, you’ll achieve dramatic results similar to traditional CO2 while minimizing long-term discomfort and the risk of complications.

Pixel Fractional CO2 Laser significantly improves the tone and texture of skin in one treatment with minimal downtime and faster healing – patients usually return to normal activities within three to seven days. Pixel Fractional CO2 Laser has a lower risk of complications compared to traditional CO2 laser resurfacing with a short learning curve. What’s more, the Impact ITED hand piece will ensure 100% absorption of your trusted topical cream for complete and effective absorption. Expect lightening and improvement of skin color and texture with the use of Impact ITED only from the Alma Lasers. This is something that other Fractional CO2 Laser does not offer. Did I mention that this is an FDA Approved machine?

So be more confident, smoothen your acne scars with Pixel Fractional CO2 LaserTreatment. Make your face chemical free! Don’t live with your acne scars when the solution is at your fingertips.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How many sessions are needed for effective treatment of deep acne scars and skin resurfacing with the use of PIXEL CO2 Fractional Laser?

– Approximately 6 sessions, depending on the depth and severity of the condition. Usually 25% improvement is to be expected every session so the patient has to be consistent with the fractional CO2 treatment and should always come for follow up treatment for best results.

 

2. How painful is the treatment?

– Unlike traditional CO2 Lasers that can be extremely painful, PIXEL Fractional CO2  is more tolerable. EMLA or topical anesthesia will be applied 40 to 60 minutes prior to treatment for a more comfortable procedure, but ofcourse, it will still depend on the patient’s level of pain tolerance.

 

3. What will be the interval for the PIXEL CO2 Fractional Laser? And can I go back to my normal routine after this laser treatment?

– Expect to feel minor discomfort after the treatment. If it cannot be tolerated, patient can take mefenamic or ponstan. Patient will also be asked to come back every month for the succeeding treatment, and downtime for the face would be around 3 days and about 7 days for stretch marks since the face has better blood circulation. Grids will be seen on day 2 onwards, and the small fractionated scabs will fall eventually. Just avoid sun exposure or make sure to apply sun protection on a daily basis, wash with mild facial wash and apply moisturizer for best results.

 

4. What level of improvement shall one expect from the PIXEL CO2 Fractional Laser?

– Patient can observe 25% improve every visit. Once the skin completely heals and normalizes, patient can come back for another round of fractional laser treatment for another 25% improvement.

 

5. What is the difference of the PIXEL CO2 Fractional Laser compared to other brands from China?

– PIXEL CO2 from the Alma Lasers is a trusted brand, and this is FDA approved. You know you are getting the best that money can buy for a treatment that you really need for skin resurfacing

 

6. Aside from deep acne scars and skin resurfacing, what other treatments and what other benefits can be seen when a patient undergoes series of sessions of PIXEL Fractionated CO2 Laser?

– Patients can also treat fine lines, wrinkles, atrophic scar, atrophic stretch marks, flaccidity, or rinophyma. Patient can really achieve a better younger look, with PIXEL CO2 combined with either our GentleMax (GentleYag) Laser Skin Tightening or Venus Freeze to Freeze the Aging Process.

 

7. What is the difference between Erbium: Yag vs. CO2 Laser?

–        Erbium Yag is highly absorbed in water which results in lower thermal injury than with CO2. What it means though, is that there is lower chance of stimulation for new collagen, when what a patient really wants is to maximize stimulation of collagen for better overall skin texture and appearance.

 

8. What are the contraindications for this kind of treatment?

– Use of Isotretinoin, recent sun exposure, recent exfoliation, history of keloid and viral infection. Discuss this with the dermatologist.

      Hi Trixie,

      Sent you an e-mail regarding the scars on your legs. Pixel Fractional CO2 laser is not advisable for the lower extremities. You can try chemical peel, bleaching or Revlite Laser.
