Pixel Laser Resurfacing
Discover how laser resurfacing at Spa in the City in Dallas can help you look and feel your best.
When you’re young, you may not notice the way sun exposure and your skin care regimen (or lack thereof) affect your skin. But once you reach your thirties and forties, you’ll begin to notice lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores that seemed to have appeared overnight. At Spa in the City, our patients are ready for these changes with the use of skin resurfacing treatments that can give them smooth, flawless skin in virtually no time. Laser skin resurfacing treatments in Dallas are the best way to reverse skin damage from the sun (those pesky UV rays) and years of poor skin care.
This gentle but deeply penetrating laser skin treatment is delivered via the Pixel Er: YAG laser.
What is Pixel laser resurfacing?

Older laser methods may have been the best at the time, but they were not as efficient as they were thought to be. In 2006, Pixel by Alma became the first FDA-approved ablative fractional laser skin resurfacing method that was as gentle as a non-ablative laser with just a few days of social downtime for patients. The name Pixel is based on the way the device treats the skin – creating small tunnels or micro-canals in the epidermis that go anywhere from 20-50 microns deep, penetrating down to the dermis.
When the Pixel laser resurfacing in Dallas touches the skin, the 2490nm Er: YAG delivered laser energy makes visible marks on the skin in a grid-like fashion. These grid marks are made in two configurations of 7×7 and 9×9 – the 7×7 penetrates deeper into the skin and treats higher levels of skin damage such as scarring, while the 9×9 configuration is gentler on the skin and can be used for the most sensitive areas such as the neck and chest. While the laser energy penetrates deeply into the dermis where damaged proteins lay, the fractionated position of the laser allows healthy cells to thrive.
Leaving space between the treated skin cells and those that are healthy, the skin’s natural healing process will take over with rapid epithelial stem cell growth over days or weeks in between sessions. Instead of treating the full face, only 15 to 20 percent of the skin is affected by the 2490nm Pixel laser, supporting healthier, fresher epithelial tissues. Most laser systems cap at 1064nm which is less than half the strength of the Pixel – now you can truly get through to the deepest, most damaged sections of the dermis to begin the necessary restructuring.

What to Expect
Here’s what to expect when you undergo a photofacial in Dallas.
This minimally invasive laser skin resurfacing treatment in Dallas is unlike any other ablative laser in that the surrounding skin doesn’t appear any more damaged than if you had a light sunburn. After laser treatments, you should always have a skin care plan ready, since the days following may yield swelling and some light redness. The reason the skin responds this way is that it needs to be hydrated and infused with nutrients to assist the epithelial cells in the growth phase. You will see the best possible results when you’re prepared with the right cosmeceutical products that have been hand-selected for your skin type and needs. Before your Pixel treatment, our skin care team will recommend some of these creams and serums that can invigorate cellular repair, inspire glow, and refresh your look.
Each session typically lasts for 20 to 60 minutes, and during your skin analysis and consultation one of our laser technicians at Spa in the City will let you know specifically what to expect. To see effective results with your Pixel laser resurfacing in Dallas, we recommend four to six sessions. You should always schedule these sessions four weeks apart to allow the skin to heal from the inside out between treatments. We offer Pixel on our membership plans to help you get the most for your time and money, so you can schedule Pixel sessions all at once and plan ahead.
