Deep fractional Pixel CO2 laser resurfacing is a treatment for textural problems as well as discoloration issues. If you have fine lines or wrinkles around the eyes, mouth or on the forehead, shallow scars from acne or non-responsive skin even after a facelift, then you may be a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing. Most women start deep laser resurfacing in their late 30s or early 40s.
One treatment of deep laser resurfacing makes your skin tighter, smoother, and more even. The improvements in appearance and tone continue to accumulate for months and the visible results last for years.
Individual results may vary.
Textural issues in the skin:
- Facial lines
- Shallow to deep wrinkles
- Acne and other scars
Discolorations in the skin:
- Other skin irregularities, including blemishes and pigmentation, like melasma.
There is one unique quality of the erbium laser resurfacing, however, which stands out: it works better than any CO2 laser for treating hyperpigmentation (sun spots, age spots, liver spots). This is explained by the facts that skin pigment rests in the superficial skin layers and is better suited to absorb the erbium laser energy. So if you have areas of darker skin discoloration, superficial erbium laser resurfacing might be right for you.
- One session is needed for full effect
- Treatment takes only one hour
- You will see the full effect of the treatment in three to six months. Individual results may vary.
