Erbium Laser resurfacing for a more youthful appearance
Rejuvenate your skin’s overall tone, texture and elasticity, with our Pixel 2940nm Erbium Yag laser treatment. This fractionated technology combines the visible results of ablative laser therapy with non-ablative methods for a more comfortable treatment and faster recovery. The Harmony Pixel Laser treatment can provide effective solutions for a number of skin concerns and can be used to treat the following conditions:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Sun damaged skin
- Skin laxity
- Age spots

How It Works
The laser pulse is split into multiple beams (pixels) creating multiple microscopic channels of thermal injury while leaving surrounding tissue untouched. The healthy untreated tissue allows the skin to heal much faster and helps stimulate collagen remodeling and new cell growth resulting in a quicker recovery with very little downtime. The procedure is gentle enough to treat even the most delicate skin of the neck, chest, and hands.
What to expect
We use a topical anesthetic applied for 30 minutes prior to treatment. Appropriate protective eyewear is required for both the patient and practitioner. You may feel mild heat with delivery of the laser pulses during treatment, but the procedure is generally well tolerated with minimal discomfort.
Post treatment you may have some mild redness and the skin may feel as though you have a sunburn. Mild swelling can also occur in more aggressively treated areas. You will see a pixel pattern on the skin for 3-5 days post treatment with flaking and full recovery within 5-7 days.
