High Power Pixel 2940 handpiece – How It Works
- With the High Power Pixel 2940, preprogrammed laser energy passes through the patented Pixel micro optics lens array and penetrates the skin, affecting just 15-20 percent of the surface. It creates an ablative thermal channel at the pixel area – a micro-injury – without disturbing the surrounding tissue. Those micro-injured areas start the process of healing and the untreated area acts as a reservoir for rapid restoration. As collagen remodels, skin tightens and texture improves.
- The gentleness of the procedure allows delicate areas such as the neck, chest and hands to be treated as safely as the face with little risk of infection. There is little downtime or discomfort, and no analgesia, gels or other disposables are required.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do Pixel Treatments work?
A: A pre-programmed laser beam passes through the patented PIXEL micro optic lens and penetrates the skin. It creates an ablative and thermal effect at the pixel area – a micro injury without disturbing the surrounding tissue. Those micro injured areas start the process of healing as collagen remodels, skin tightens and the skin texture improves.
Q: Why Pixel 2940 for fractional ablative skin resurfacing?
A: The Pixel 2940nm Er:YAG Module provides the right Pixel wavelength for the right clinical indication. It is a safe and effective treatment for fractional ablative skin resurfacing on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands. Designed to treat aged and photo-damaged skin, the Pixel 2940 improves the quality and texture of the dermis while it stimulates collagen regeneration.
Q: What are the recommended applications?
A: Skin resurfacing, acne scarring, photo damaged skin, laser peeling, rhytids and fine lines all can be treated with the Pixel 2940. Since this procedure spares healthy tissue, it can be performed on delicate kin areas, such as the face, neck, chest and hands.
Q: What can the patient expect?
A: Patients will find the skin around the treatment area feeling firmer and tighter, with a smoother surface texture. Their face will look like they have a sunburn, which can last up to four days. They will not need analgesics or pain medication with the Pixel 2940, and they can return to work immediately after treatment.
