Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Pixel Laser are both light-based non-invasive medspa procedures, but each is designed to serve a different purpose. IPL is mostly recommended as a treatment for pigmentation issues of the skin. It is an ideal solution to treat sun spots and works successfully on tiny blood vessels that cause skin redness.
Pixel Laser, on the other hand, involves an ablative, fractionated laser beam treatment. It is primarily aimed at resurfacing the skin to remove anomalies on the skin surface and smooth out acne scars and minor wrinkles. Motykie medical spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides both these procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
IPL photofacial treatments at Motykie medspa are designed to target a range of skin imperfections, including uneven pigmentation and sun spots. The procedure can restore a more uniform looking, luminous, and youthful complexion to the skin. Sun damage and aging effects can also be reduced with this treatment.
IPL photofacial involves little downtime and low risk of side effects because of the relatively gentle light treatment. The effects with IPL can still be fairly dramatic, which will include:
- Reduction of uneven pigmentation from broken facial veins and capillaries
- Treating age spots, sun spots, enlarged pores, acne, and rosacea
- Reduction of facial fine lines and minor wrinkles
- Treating sun damaged skin
IPL treatment works by exposing the pigmented lesions to short bursts or pulses of visible light. During the phototherapy session, the IPL beam will increase the skin’s temperature in the targeted area of highly concentrated melanin pigment. This will destroy the cells in that pigment.
The body will naturally replace these cells with new ones, restoring a more uniform, youthful looking skin. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for IPL.
Pixel laser is a skin resurfacing treatment that rejuvenates the affected areas of the skin by treating microscopic dots. These dots are stimulated with laser energy, and will activate the skin’s natural healing response to create enhanced skin tone across the treated area.
Pixel laser technique is less invasive, more comfortable and involves less downtime as compared to traditional resurfacing laser procedures. Pixel resurfacing can produce significant aesthetic benefits by way of:
- Mitigating the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Treating years of deep sun damaged skin
- Reducing enlarged pores
- Revitalizing sagging skin
- Treating acne and minor scars
- Reducing stretch marks
- Addressing other skin blemishes
Pixel laser may even tighten and firm up the loose skin to some degree while improving the overall skin tone and texture. Patients with dull and lackluster skin can benefit from this procedure. In addition to the face, it can even treat areas such as thighs and abdomen which may have stretch marks.
Pixel laser procedure involves fractional resurfacing because it only targets a fraction of the skin to trigger the body’s natural healing response in the affected area. It thereby achieves substantial skin rejuvenation with minimal or fractionated laser exposure.
