The iPixel direct short intense burst of laser energy to the outer layer of the skin. This heats water within the surface layers causing the skin and water to turn to vapour. Hence, tiny areas (‘pixels’) of the outer layers of the skin are removed precisely. The surrounding skin remains intact. The body then stimulates healing which results in the production of new collagen and elastin and new healthy smoother skin tissue.
The iPixel laser is very precise and hence there are very few side-effects compared to other ablative lasers.
