iPixel is a fractional ablative laser treatment that can resurface the skin and can improve the appearance of texture and pigment related concerns. It’s highly effective for treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, large pores and rough skin texture by stimulating collagen renewal for a refreshed and radiant complexion.

Ablative Laser Resurfacing

The fractional ablative laser treatment delivers precise beams of energy in a pixel-size formation to target specific cells. The surrounding cells remain intact, which speeds up healing. The heat from the energy destroys the injured or damaged cells and stimulates collagen production to remodel and fill in the area with new healthy cells.

What Does The Treatment Involve?

Your consultation will determine your suitability for treatment.

The nurse will apply a numbing cream to minimise discomfort during treatment. We will configure the depth depending on the area and concern, and the device will make a few passes over your skin, delivering bursts of energy.

After the iPixel treatment, you may notice square formations with tiny pinprick dots on the skin. The nurse will apply a topical serum to minimise these marks.

The treatment is not suitable for all skin types, including individuals with very dark skin tones. We will determine your suitability during your consultation.

Most patients require 4-6 sessions.

Is the treatment painful?

We can apply a topical numbing cream before the treatment to minimise discomfort. Though pain is subjective, most patients do not experience pain. Some describe the treatment itself as a pricking sensation. A more vigorous treatment may be more uncomfortable. Once the treatment is complete, the skin will feel very hot, and some compare to the feeling of sunburn.
