The effects of the treatment

The main goal of the iPixel ™ resurfacing treatment is to improve the overall condition of the skin. The therapy allows to eliminate small wrinkles, scars or even stretch marks as well as to improve the color. It is a great way to fight the problem of irregular skin structure, surgical and post-acne scars.

What does the treatment look like?

Laser skin rejuvenation treatment for the patient’s comfort is performed under local anesthesia using lidocaine cream. The therapy is based on fully controlled damage and remodeling of the skin cells. In this way, the skin structure is regenerated. New cells support the process of tissue reconstruction as well as accelerate the production of collagen and elastin fibers.
