For many years, because of the high risk/benefit ratio of laser skin resurfacing, less invasive approaches for treating photoaging have been desirable. Now, non-ablative fractionated skin resurfacing has become very popular, as it involves little or no downtime and delivers great results for mild to moderate skin wrinkling and dyschromia. The High Power Pixel® 2940 handpiece on the Harmony®XL, offers fractionated skin resurfacing treatments. The process is so gentle that the neck, chest, hands and face can all be treated with minimal risk.
The Pixel® 2940 Er:YAG handpiece provides a safe and effective treatment for aged and photo-damaged skin with no patient downtime. The Pixel 2940 represents the best of both worlds for skin resurfacing: it combines the proven effectiveness of an ablative approach with the patient comfort level and convenience of a non-ablative approach.
Outstanding results, lower risks
The Pixel 2940 Er:YAG module delivers results on par with ablative lasers, but it limits the possible side effects of ablative treatments such as hypo- or hyperpigmentation, post-operative infection, swelling, erythema or edema. In addition, the Pixel 2940 can be used on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands - a much wider scope than the traditional ablative technologies.
Pixel 2940 improves the quality and texture of the dermis while it stimulates collagen regeneration. Skin resurfacing is a gradual process that happens over several treatments. Treatments are fast, thanks to the large spot size and high 2-Hz repetition rate.
Because re-epithelialization occurs quite quickly in the treatment zone, the risk of infection is reduced significantly from previous conventional treatment methods.
Recommended applications include:
- Skin resurfacing
- Laser peeling
- Rhytids and fine lines
