Laser Skin Resurfacing
PixelRF Micro Plasma Radiofrequency Technology Improves Skin Imperfections Without Skin Color Limitations.
APixelRF uses proprietary InMotion Refractive Radiofrequency Micro Plasma Technology, which both ablates and heats the skin through controlled, focused delivery of energy without using disposables. Healthy skin around the treated area helps to accelerate the healing process thus improving results and reducing patient down time by allowing the need for just the targeted tissue to heal and collagen to strengthen. The result is fresh, smooth, radiant skin.
With its high-energy output, the PixelRF can achieve in as little as one session what would require multiple sessions with other RF technologies. Not only is it highly effective to use on all skin types (Fitzpatrick I–VI) but treatments can be administered year-round with no seasonal restrictions. Unlike dermal rollers or low power bi-polar RF applicators that superficially ablate and heat the skin, the PixelRF causes evaporation, mechanical damage and thermal damage deep beneath the epidermis surface providing significant dermal impact with minimal epidermal disruption.
How long is each treatment? How many treatments will I need?
Each treatment is approximately a one hour appointment, 30 minutes to topically numb up the surface of the area to be treated and thirty minutes of actual treatment time. Patients are recommended to undergo 1 – 4 Alma Laser’s PixelRF treatments, administered every four weeks. Optimal results are typically seen in two to three months.
Is Pixel RF-Micro Plasma Radio Frequency Skin Resurfacing painful?
Pain tolerance varies from person to person. Pixel RF may be experienced as an uncomfortable sensation. There may be a heat/sunburn sensation afterwards which soon resolves in a matter of hours. It is important to follow all post treatment instructions and know that pain symptoms are normal and fleeting.
There are no special requirements before treatment.
Right after treatment you may feel a hot sunburn like sensation. You may experience slight swelling for a few days. You will need to keep an ointment on your skin the first couple of days after the treatment to facilitate healing. As new skin replaces damaged tissue, your skin may look and feel a little dry, a sign that healing is underway. Your skin will start to look better, brighter and fresher within days and will steadily improve over the next weeks with full effect at three to four months.
