What is Pixel Fractional Laser Resurfacing?

Fractional Laser means the laser beam is broken up into dots (or fractions) and these dots punch small holes in the skin, which heal with new, improved skin. The heat also stimulates collagen growth. These small laser dots will also slowly punch out pigmentation and scars. The results are variable, but this is a powerful machine. The name Pixel describes how the laser works; it is comparable to the pixelation dots on a TV.

This laser can be used on most skin types, including some darker skin types, which are unsuitable for lights and lasers that are attracted to pigment.

Pixel Fractional Laser Resurfacing is available at our Nedlands and Applecross clinics.

What happens before the treatment?

Patients should avoid blood-thinning medications and report any recent changes in health.

The area should be clean and dry prior to treatment, with no makeup applied. Numbing cream can be applied and gas can be used to make you more comfortable during treatment, although many patients have said this treatment hasn’t been particularly uncomfortable.

Eye shields will be placed in situ to protect your eyes. A small vacuum-cleaning type device will suck up any dead skin cells. Treatments will take approximately 15-30 minutes and longer for larger areas.

What happens after the Pixel Fractional Laser Resurfacing treatment?

The area treated will look like the pixelation of a TV set. These are usually fine white dots. The area then becomes redder and warmer, like sunburn. Discomfort is usually minimal.

Aftercare instructions are available and you should strictly follow these. Usually, this involves icing and the use of a bland moisturiser. The skin should be kept lightly moist for at least 2 days. Some patients experience peeling and scabbing. Make-up should be avoided until the skin is healed, this is usually up to 5 days.

Downtime can be from 1 day to 1 week. Recovery is usually much faster than Erbium laser resurfacing. You need to be realistic and be aware that this treatment has variable outcomes. The average is usually 3-4 treatments. You should sleep with an extra pillow, upright to reduce swelling and take a daily antihistamine such as Claratyne.

Important: Don’t use any creams on the skin that are not approved by the doctors. If the swelling becomes excessively severe or a fever occurs, please ring the clinic immediately. This treatment is usually well-tolerated.
