Safe and Effective Treatments
Northcoast Laser Cosmetics uses the most advanced laser technology for superficial skin resurfacing. Pixel Perfect offers dramatic results, but with fewer risks than Co2 lasers or chemical peels. Plus, it reduces necessary healing time from up to thirty days to usually seven days or less, depending on your starting condition.
How does it work?
Pixel Perfect works by creating thousands of microscopic perforations, but the skin around each of these perforations remains intact. This allows your skin’s top layer to heal from the edge of these tiny holes very rapidly.
When will you see results?
Effects are cumulative. After the first treatment you will see improvements in pigment and skin texture within seven to ten days. Other improvements such as collagen stimulation will be more subtle and may take one to three months. With each subsequent treatment, subtle changes will accumulate until you have achieved the improvement you desire.
How long do results last and how many will you need?
A series of three treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, is our standard recommendation. Occasionally, more treatments may be needed for certain individuals or conditions. While Pixel Perfect reverses the appearance of aging, we can’t stop the aging process. Depending on your starting point and your lifestyle following treatment, your new look can last several months or longer. A maintenance treatment is recommended once every six to twelve months to help ensure lasting improvement.
What can you expect immediately post-treatment?
Immediately following the procedure you will experience redness and possible swelling, similar to sunburn. The redness and swelling usually dissipate within three days. Then gentle peeling may occur for one to three days. Makeup may be applied to the treated area after the second day. It is extremely important to apply a moisturizer with a broad spectrum sunblock and avoid sun exposure on a daily basis to reduce any potential side effects.
How long does the treatment take?
The Pixel Perfect treatment takes approximately 30 minutes. If prescribed, topical anesthetics should be applied 30 minutes before the treatment time.
