What we treat:
acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, surgical scars, rough leathery skin

 

How:
Using the Alma Pixel Pro, which is an Erbium:Yag 2940 nm fractionated ablative laser

How it works: Microscopic holes are lasered into the skin in a grid pattern, leaving interspersed areas of unaffected skin around which the skin heals more quickly. As the skin heals it produces new collagen.

 

What to expect:
Immediately after treatment, there will be redness and a sun burn feeling that lasts several hours. There will be a pale to dark brown pixel pattern (grid pattern) and a leathery feeling of the skin that will flake off on days 4 and 5. Full recovery is expected by days 5-7. Down time is decreased with subsequent treatments.

 

Number of treatments needed:
3 treatments if aggressive, or 5 treatments if conservative, spaced 4 weeks or more apart. Results continue to improve once treatments are complete over 6 months.
