IPIXEL ACNE SCARRING

 

LASER SCAR TREATMENT

Scarred skin is lingering proof of a trauma as the skin heals by replacing injured skin cells with fibrotic tissue. Compacted scar tissue rarely fades on its own and we generally assume that most scars are left for life. With the Harmony XL Pro iPixel Laser , you can give your skin a fresh start and reclaim smooth, glowing skin in just 30 minutes
Harmony Laser XL PRO iPIXEL (Er-YAG) is an FDA approved fractional ablative laser. It is an extremely effective laser used for skin resurfacing. It is a proven treatment to reduce wrinkles and visibly tighten the skin. Reducing scars, stretch marks and pore size can only be achieved through resurfacing. iPixel can be safely used on delicate areas such as the neck, hands or skin around the eyes. It is an effective non-surgical treatment to tighten and lift the eye lids as well as improve and smoothe skin under the eyes.
Unlike harsh chemical peels, destructive acid, and painful excision surgeries, the iPixel Laser with the Harmony XL Pro system is virtually pain-free and there are very few minor side effects. The laser targets beneath the surface, so there’s no need for numbing, gels, or needles and it’s gentle enough to treat all areas of the body, including sensitive areas around the eye area, neck, chest, and hands. Wherever you have a scar or uneven skin texture, the iPixel laser is safe to treat it.
To achieve and maintain the best possible effect, 3-4 treatments recommended every 4-6 weeks.

FAQ

HOW DOES IT WORK?


I Pixel procedures ablate, or remove, the epidermis and use a higher-powered laser. The beam heats up the top layer of damaged skin, causing it to vaporize, and reveals a fresh new layer of skin underneath. New collagen is also stimulated with this method, and the skin tightens as it heals. If acne scars are deeper, the ablative laser therapy would produce the smoother texture and glowing complexion you desire. Because ablative skin resurfacing is invasive, it is necessary to have topical anaesthetic. Downtime of approximately 1 week is recommended afterwards because the damaged skin continues to flake off while the new layer of skin heals.




WHAT IS INVOVED?


The iPixel Laser is named for the innovative -pixel laser configuration, which stamps a small pin-sized pixel grid onto the skin. This powerful laser is fractionally ablative, so it heats up the compacted scar tissue with powerful, targeted wave energy that destroys the damaged tissue in the process. This laser reaches through the top layers of the skin with precise, controlled penetration and intensity.




WHAR ARE THE RISKS OR SIDE EFFECT?


In addition to microscopic ablation of the scar itself, the laser also heats up the underlying tissue to boost collagen production and increase blood flow, which speeds up the healing process. New skin cells fill the scarred area with healthy, fresh skin while smoothing out the surface. In addition to reducing and eliminating the look of the scar itself, the boost in collagen also helps to tighten the undamaged skin around the scar, so you can enjoy the added perk of skin resurfacing at the same time.




WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS


iPixel is a particularly effective laser treatment for individuals with scars from acne, as well as active acne, enlarged pores, rough skin textures, hyperpigmentation and photo damaged skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and stretch marks. This treatment can be performed on any skin type. This treatment is fantastic for mild to medium wrinkling with little downtime and can be combined with a number of other treatments. Fully ablative laser can also be used for deeper penetration.

HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?


Each individual patient’s results will be different. After six to twelve months from your initial course, a top-up treatment is advised. Lifestyle can have a huge effect on how long results will last.




IS THERE ANY BEFORE AND AFTERCARE INFORMATION I SHOULD KNOW ABOUT?


Before treatment:
– Avoid the sun 4-6 weeks before and after treatment. This also includes sun beds.
