Q: Am I a good candidate for Pixel Treatment?
A: Anyone whose skin shows signs of aging is a candidate for Pixel treatment. The most dramatic results are seen on people who have tried non-invasive therapies and are looking for something more aggressive. The best candidates have moderate sun damage, are in good health, have good health habits and typically take good care of their skin.
Q: Does Pixel treatment work on all skin types?
A: Yes, Pixel treatment can be performed on all skin types; however, at your consultation our Skin Matrx staff will be sure that you are a good candidate for Pixel skin resurfacing, as some skin conditions can interfere with proper treatment.
Q: How long will it take?
A: Pixel skin rejuvenation treatments usually take less than 30 minutes, but could be longer if your condition is more advanced. Your exact treatment regimen will depend on your individual condition.
Q: Is it safe?
A: Pixel treatments are safe and effective, without injections or surgery. You can expect your skin to be flushed and red after the treatment, but this is completely normal and short-lived.
Q: Will it hurt?
A: How much the procedure hurts varies from person to person. A topical anesthetic is applied prior to treatment to minimize discomfort. In general, the procedure can feel similar to a sunburn. The sunburn sensation is likely to continue after the treatment. These symptoms are a normal part of the healing process and should improve quickly. Healing time is connected to depth of treatment.
Q: What If I need a touch-up later?
A: While Pixel Perfect reverses the appearance of aging, we can't stop the aging process. Depending on your starting point and your lifestyle following treatment, your results can last up to a year or longer. For most patients, a touch-up treatment after 6–12 months (usually using a different light-based skin rejuvenation technology) helps maintain a healthy glow.
