Fractional laser treatment is an advanced, innovative aesthetic laser treatment that helps counteract years of sun damage or acne scarring. It provides noticeable results, often in as little as a single treatment. This treatment works by sending a laser beam into thousands of small treatment zones. Fractional laser treatment is also referred to as Pixel because it works like a photograph being enhanced one pixel at a time. If you’ve considered laser skin resurfacing, dermabrasions or deep chemical peels, but hesitated because of the extended recovery time or anesthesia required, Pixel Perfect may be the right solution for you. It provides similar dramatic results through a superior technology with fewer risks and a much faster healing time.
Fractional laser treatment has been shown to improve a variety of skin concerns for our Houston, Spring and Woodlands patients, including:

Pixel Perfect works by creating thousands of microscopic perforations, but the skin around each of these perforations remains intact. This allows your skin’s top layer to heal from the edge of these tiny holes very rapidly, which significantly improves your complexion. In more detail, the Pixel® laser light passes through patented optics to penetrate the skin with tiny thermal channels, only as deep as a few sheets of paper. In each channel it creates a micro-injury, without disturbing the surrounding tissue.
These micro-injury sites (about 15-20 percent of the treatment area) start the process of healing. As collagen remodels, skin tightens and scars improve. The intact, undamaged skin around the treatment site is what promotes quicker healing for a faster recovery.
A majority of our patients experience little discomfort and the treatment is very well tolerated. Patients can return to work the next day, and make-up and shaving are acceptable soon after treatment. Some patients may experience swelling or peeling, which should subside in less than a week. Best of all, after treatment you will be left with beautiful, youthful skin.
