Pixel Perfect

A revolutionary new device in the aesthetic world, Pixel Perfect has become one of the most popular and most effective skin resurfacing treatments. From treating wrinkles and fine lines to sun damage and pigmentation, this innovative technology can both reverse signs of age and remodel skin to appear healthier and more radiant.

At Northcoast Laser Cosmetics, we are continually keeping up-to-date with the latest in skin resurfacing and aesthetic treatments. Today, we draw on the advanced technology of the Pixel Perfect device to smoothen imperfections, correct the effects of time, and help patients achieve a clearer and more youthful complexion.

What is Pixel Perfect?

Pixel Perfect is a fractional laser designed to support the growth of new, healthier collagen and ultimately lift years away from the face. The rejuvenation procedure has been praised for its safe and highly effective treatment of the skin, often creating dramatic improvements to skin tone and texture. Boasting less downtime and reduced risk of complications, Pixel Perfect is an excellent alternative to traditional (ablative) lasers for reversing signs of age and revitalizing your complexion.

At Northcoast Laser Cosmetics in Mentor Ohio, we perform Pixel Perfect treatments for patients of all ages as well as on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, abdomen and décolletage. The device’s versatile design means that patients with both light and dark skin tones can benefit from the procedure. The highly developed laser works to free the skin of blemishes and spots, transforming uneven skin tones to beautiful and luscious-looking skin.

How Does the Pixel Perfect Technology Work?

The Pixel Perfect laser is based on highly advanced laser technology. The treatment works by creating thousands of microscopic perforations beneath the skin while leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This ensures not only a more comprehensive rejuvenation but also a quicker and more comfortable recovery time. As the Pixel laser light passes through the surface skin and penetrates the dermal layers, the body triggers a wound-healing response that works to repair the damaged tissue by creating new collagen and remodeling the surface skin. As the body works to heal the controlled micro-injuries, scars begin to fade, and the skin’s texture evens out to reveal a smoother, more radiant profile.

Our Pixel Perfect treatments take approximately 30 minutes. The procedure is safe and comfortable and offers fewer risks than traditional Co2 lasers or chemical peels. This innovative skin resurfacing treatment also lowers the healing time from up to 30 days to seven days or less, depending on your initial condition. The Pixel Perfect technology combines the results of ablated laser therapy with the gentleness and ease of non-ablative methods. At Northcoast Laser Cosmetics, we perform this treatment for patients seeking to restore a smoother, more even skin tone and a beautiful natural glow.

What Can the Pixel Perfect Laser Treat?

The Pixel Perfect laser is highly effective in improving skin tone and texture. With the capacity to transform age-affected or worn skin into a shining and healthier state, the procedure can dramatically revitalize your complexion. Pixel perfect can also be used to treat various skin issues and signs of aging, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Acne scars
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Pores (reduced appearance)

What to Expect After Treatment

Immediately following the procedure, you may experience mild to moderate redness and swelling. Patients generally liken this sensation to sunburn, though this usually dissipates within three days. You may also experience some gentle peeling for the first three days. During the recovery period, you should avoid sun exposure to reduce any potential side effects, and ensure that you apply a moisturizer with broad-spectrum sun protection. You can apply makeup to the treated area after the second day.

Pixel Perfect Results

Results of the procedure are cumulative. Though you may begin to see improvements in pigment and skin texture within seven to ten days, results will continue to develop over one to three months as collagen production continues. Subtle changes will accumulate after each session, and your skin will gradually appear brighter and significantly healthier.\

You can generally enjoy the effects of Pixel Perfect for several months following treatment. The longevity of results will depend on the quality of your skin and how you care for the area after treatment. With a healthy skincare routine and proper nutrition, you can extend your improved, refreshed look for up to six months.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

The amount and frequency of sessions required will vary for each patient, depending on the skin’s habits and current condition. At Northcoast Laser Cosmetics, we generally recommend a series of three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart to ensure optimal results. However, we will work with you to determine the frequency of sessions required to achieve and maintain your desired look. While Pixel Perfect helps to reduce the appearance of age, it cannot stop the aging process. Therefore, we recommend a revision treatment once every six to twelve months to ensure effective, long-lasting results.

Benefits of Pixel Perfect

Compared to traditional lasers, Pixel Perfect offers a unique and relatively comfortable treatment experience with benefits for many patients, including:

  • Quick treatment time
  • Little to no downtime
  • Safe and effective
  • Various treatment areas
  • No anesthesia required
  • Reduced risk of complications

Who is a Suitable Candidate?

The Pixel Perfect device is ideal for those with mild to moderate wrinkling. This treatment is also suitable for those seeking to reduce the appearance of pores, reverse signs of aging, and remove blemishes from the face, neck, abdomen and décolletage. Since Pixel Perfect works by stimulating new collagen, the procedure is also ideal for those simply seeking a brighter, smoother or more even complexion. If you are suffering from a particular skin condition, we will assess the area first to ensure it is safe to proceed with treatment. Additionally, if you are unsure about which procedure will work best for your skin, our friendly team of nurses and physicians can help you determine the most suitable method according to your personal needs and aesthetic goals.

Is Pixel Perfect Right for You?

When performing our skin rejuvenation and age-defying treatments, our primary goal is to help you feel more confident and comfortable in your skin. At Northcoast Laser Cosmetics, we understand that even minor imperfections like sun spots or acne scars can adversely affect your appearance and confidence. By performing the Pixel Perfect procedure, we aim to resolve these concerns by freeing your face of blemishes, restoring vitality to your complexion, and bringing out the best in your skin.
