Pixel CO2 Laser with iTED in Chicago

Pixel CO2 is a potent, yet gentle and effective, member of the fractional carbon dioxide laser family. This resurfacing procedure utilizes CO2 laser light and iTED technology to rejuvenate the skin of the face, neck, hands and body.This focused laser energy evaporates the top layers of the skin, stimulating the cells of the deeper layers of the skin. In turn, new, healthy cells rise to the surface of the skin. As the new skin cells take their place at the top layer of skin, these healthy cells stimulate the growth of new collagen, resulting in smoother, less visible pores and tighter, homogeneous, younger looking skin.

HOW DOES PIXEL CO2 LASER WORK?

Using advanced technology, the Pixel CO2 Laser harnesses the power of a carbon dioxide coherent laser to ablate, evaporate and replace by evaporating the water inside 20 percent of the targeted skin cells. This fractional energy (20 percent) causes not only the resurfacing of the skin cells, but also the added benefit of “peripheral heating” unique to the CO2 lasers. This peripheral heating results in intense new collagen remodeling in the skin, which manifests itself in the unique, unparalleled and spectacular results mentioned above.

WHAT IS ITED?

iTED is the combination of two distinct technologies, performed in the same session to drive PRP (platelet rich plasma). Patients may be familiar with PRP as its more clever nickname: Vampire Face Lift. The technology introduces essential vitamins into the skin, which are derived directly from the patient’s blood cells.

HOW IS ITED™ PERFORMED?

The process is painless and follows this sequence:

a) PRP is extracted and prepared from a small amount of blood drawn from the patient, see our Vampire Face Lift page for more on the subject

b) The Pixel CO2 laser profractionally creates microchannels or microperforations of the skin,

c) The PRP mixture is then directly applied, along with liquified botox or pure high concentrations of cosmeceuticals on the surface of the skin.

d) The IMPACT module then applies acoustic pressure that forces the surface liquids to be driven and pushed directly into the deep and therapeutic depth of the skin. This ingenious method achieves spectacular and impressive rejuvenation of the skin.

CAN PIXEL CO2 BE COMBINED WITH OTHER PROCEDURES?

Definitely, it is recommended to be combined with Vampire Face Lift and Botox.

HOW LONG WILL THE PIXEL CO2 LASER PROCEDURE TAKE?

We offer the Pixel CO2 laser at our Chicagoland offices and will normally take between 15 and 30 minutes.

IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME AFTER THE PIXEL CO2 LASER PROCEDURE?

Because Pixel CO2 is an ablative laser procedure, there is normally three to four days downtime. Some minor redness and/or pink hues may appear for a couple days post treatment. Patients can resume normal, everyday activities one day following treatment.

WILL ANY TYPE OF ANESTHESIA BE UTILIZED DURING THE PIXEL CO2 TREATMENT?

Because the Pixel CO2 laser treatment is slightly uncomfortable, numbing of the skin with a topical cream anesthetic is necessary.

HOW MANY SESSIONS OF PIXEL CO2 ARE NEEDED?

For optimal results, our medical professionals recommend one to four treatments.

HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS OF PIXEL CO2 LAST?

It can differ from patient to patient. Results are normally long lasting, as long as topical home treatments are diligently followed as prescribed, including maximum sun protection. To further maximize the longevity of the laser results, periodic maintenance with our signature “pristine” skin microdermabrasion treatments.
