Pixel Skin Resurfacing - Skin and Laser Center - Danville, CA | La Vie MD

Pixel Skin Resurfacing


Pixel skin resurfacing treats a variety of common skin concerns including acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, rough skin texture, sun damaged skin, melasma and other forms of hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, stretch marks, and surgical scars. Pixel can be performed on the face, neck, chest and most other areas of the body.

How it works

The laser creates many tiny holes in the skin, removing a part of the top layer of skin while leaving the surrounding skin cells intact to serve as a reservoir for rapid healing. This process stimulates new collagen growth to smooth and tighten the skin. Your skin continues to make collagen for 6 months after a Pixel treatment.


Here are some benifits of pixel resurfacing:

  • Improves Heavily Damaged Skin
  • Stimulates Long-Term Collagen Production
  • Improves Skin Texture and Ton
  • Gives Immediate Results


You might find mild redness & swelling for 1-2 days. The skin usually begins to flake on days 3 to 4. Your skin is headed by day 5. Although there may still be some redness.

Pixels are done as frequently as 1 month apart.

You will be provided with a topical numbing cream, a gentle cleanser, and all of the skin care products you will need to use on your skin while you are healing. It is important that you keep your skin moisturized while you are healing.
