Laser skin resurfacing treatments [Pixel 2940]
For many years, because of the high risk/benefit ratio of laser skin resurfacing, less invasive approaches for treating photo aging have been desirable. Now, non-ablative fractional skin rejuvenation has become very popular, as it involves little or no downtime and delivers great results for mild to moderate skin wrinkling and dyschromia. With the High Power Pixel® 2940 handpiece on the Harmony®XL, you can offer fractional skin resurfacing treatments to your patients as part of Alma’s consumer-friendly Laser360 skin rejuvenation procedures. The process is so gentle that the neck, chest, hands and face can all be treated will little risk of infection.
Technology in use
By splitting the laser into a 7 x 7 or 9 x 9 array of pixels, the High Power Pixel 2940 effectively only treats 15% – 20% of the skin. It creates an ablative thermal channel at the pixel area — a micro-injury — without disturbing the surrounding tissue. Those micro-injured areas start the process of healing and the untreated area acts as a reservoir for rapid restoration. As collagen remodels, skin tightens and texture improves.
