There are many ways to treat scars, especially acne-related scarring, but none are as fast and effective as fractional, non-ablative resurfacing treatments. This method offers the safest, most successful approach to improving skin complexions and fading or removing scars located anywhere on the body.
At LightTouch, we use the Alma brand of lasers, as they offer some of the latest, safest, and most effective technology for use in the medical spa industry. We choose the PIXEL™ Laser Skin Rejuvenation system from Alma as it has become the Gold Standard in scar removal, possessing the ability to resurface the skin and remove any damaged skin cells, offering superior results at the best price for the patient.
The Technology Behind the PIXEL™
Acne scars and scars of all types can be targeted and subsequently fade away upon your treatments at our clinic. So how exactly does this cutting edge technology work you might ask? The key to gradually fading your scars is the laser’s ability to stimulate collagen in the body. Collagen is an essential protein of the body that is made naturally in our systems. It is the major component of connective tissues and is responsible for providing our skin with structure, thus making it a critical component in smoothing away scar tissue.
This FDA-approved treatment combines the proven effectiveness of an ablative method whereby the entire outer layer of skin is removed, with the comfort of the non-ablative approach, in which tiny columns of skin are removed at a time, leaving the surrounding areas untouched. The stimulation of collagen production can heal the areas while improving scar texture and appearance.
What to Expect
Before you undergo the treatment, you will have the chance to sit down with one of our knowledgeable nurses, as part of a free consultation, to discuss what you are looking to have down, and how we can help. The severity of the skin condition or scarring dictates the number of treatments needed, while skin type also plays a role in the energy levels required.
Upon choosing to go ahead with the treatments, you will need to wear protective eyewear to prevent any damage to the eyes. A clear gel solution will also be applied to your skin to protect it. Once done, the laser is turned to the correct level, and the treatment will begin. Many who undergo this procedure have equated the sensation of the laser on the skin to that of a rubber band snapping against it. Open communication is critical, so if you are experiencing discomfort, tell our practitioners, and they can adjust the machine accordingly.
With the use of the PIXEL™ system, you could reduce the appearance of your scars by 50% to 80%. Depending upon the scarring, 3 to 8 treatment sessions are advised to obtain the best results.
There is minimal downtime when it comes to the use of the PIXEL™ so you will be able to return to your daily activities almost immediately after your appointment. In some cases, redness and irritation may occur, and in rare cases, patients develop bruising and blistering, but it should settle within a few days. During the healing process, the treated epidermis flakes away, revealing fresher looking skin. Several weeks after your session, you can notice your skin appearing plumper and smoother, as the collagen production begins to take hold, your scar will gradually fade.
