Pixel laser removal, what is it?
There are a number of treatments that are being used for cosmetic rejuvenation, pixel laser removal in Prince Georges County is but one them. This treatment has a somewhat shorter recovery time than other forms of laser treatments and the recovery is less obvious. Although there will be some evidence of redness, which is common when one has laser treatment, it is not as noticeable or extensive, it typically clears up within a day.
Pixel laser removal in Prince Georges County is like other laser rejuvenation inasmuch as it tightens the skin, decreases the pore size; reduces acne scars and stretch marks as well as removing skin discoloration. The laser does two things; it removes the outer layers of the damaged skin and in the process stimulates the production of collagen. It is collagen that smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles; it is a suitable replacement for Botox treatments.
The device which is used is called an erbium yag laser; it removes tiny pieces of skin in a random pattern. No more than 35% of the skin surface is affected by the laser; it is the areas that remain untouched that speeds the healing of the spots that were treated.
Although some patients may feel minor discomfort, laser removal is considered as a painless treatment. When the treatment has been accomplished, the skin may feel as if it is sunburned, a mild irritation. For a few days after the treatment it is best to avoid wearing makeup and to stay out of the direct sun. Even after the treatment is complete and the patient returns to her normal schedule, wearing sun block is recommended.
Although many patients see results after just one treatment, the best results are after about five treatments with a three week wait between them. The patient will have considerably firmer skin; tighter and smoother and the overall complexion will have been enhanced.
With the advent of a less invasive method of treating complexion problems with a laser, more and more women are resorting to the treatment while they are still young, this move eliminates the need for more invasive treatment later in life. Pixel laser removal in Prince Georges County is commonly used on the face, hands, neck and chest as these are the areas that show signs of age.
