WHAT IS iPIXEL LASER?
iPixel is a fractional ablative laser that works by creating microcolumns of perforations in your skin, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This allows for rapid healing and stimulates new collagen and elastin production, which improves the volume and texture of your skin, as well as minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As collagen remodels, scars begin to fade and your skin recovers its youthful radiance.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
The treatment come with little discomfort but expect a slight heat sensation during the treatment, similar to a sunburn. No anesthesia is required. While the length of the treatment will vary for each individual, sessions will take between 30 minutes to an hour with a course of 3 to 5 treatments recommended, one every four to six weeks, for best results.
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.

The result of intensive exposure to direct sunlight accrued over a lifetime, the ultraviolet rays stimulate the pigment cells ‘melanocytes’ to kick-start the production of pigment ‘melanin’. This changes the colour of skin and causes unsightly patches of brown hues.
What to expect: Light treatments target the pigment in the skin to help diminish pigmentation resulting in a clearer complexion. There may be up to 7-10 days where areas of hyperpigmentation look darker after treatment and any redness, erythema and swelling should last for only 24 hours followed by clearer more even skin tone. For best results 3-5 treatments are recommended.
Also good for: Sun damage, hyper pigmentation, smoothing out skin tone.
Alternative treatments: iPixel, Peels and Cryotheraphy.

As a consequence, fine lines and wrinkles are also softened during the treatment. With all peels post treatment you may experience varying levels of redness, flaking and swelling so always choose a suitable qualified and experienced practitioner to carry out your peel and give you suitable aftercare products and instructions.
Also good for: Acne and skin rejuvenation.
