Pixel is extremely effective in stimulating collagen production and improves almost all types of scars and lines. It gives your skin a dramatically rejuvenated appearance as it encourages younger skin to emerge. The color and texture of your skin gets rid of blemishes giving it the perfect makeover.
This is an almost painless procedure when combined with a numbing cream and can be completed by our dermatologist in barely 15 minutes.
Sometimes a special technique called Shouldering may be done where the sharp edges of box scars are destroyed with the controlled use of Erbium YAG laser in its pure ablative mode. This converts the clearly demarcated scars into those with gradually sloping cosmetically superior scars, which respond better to pixel resurfacing.
At Skin Smile Clinic, we use only US FDA approved fillers. Dermal fillers can be done as a lunch hour procedure with minimal discomfort under the affect of anesthetic cream.
