Not All Scars Are Sexy: Scar and Acne Scar Improvementby Gidon Lev Eli___ 12.9.2018
Many wounds are revered as courageous trophies, but not all scars are sexy. Scarred skin is lingering proof of a trauma as the skin heals by replacing injured skin cells with fibrotic tissue. Compacted scar tissue rarely fades on its own and we generally assume that most scars are left for life. With the Harmony XL Pro iPixel Laser by Alma Lasers, you can give your skin a fresh start and reclaim smooth, glowing skin in just 30 minutes.
The iPixel Laser is named for the innovative -pixel laser configuration, which stamps a small pin-sized pixel grid onto the skin. This powerful laser is fractionally ablative, so it heats up the compacted scar tissue with powerful, targeted wave energy that destroys the damaged tissue in the process. This laser reaches through the top layers of the skin with precise, controlled penetration and intensity.
How does the laser treatment improve Acne scars and other scars?
The Harmony XL Pro iPixel laser applicator gives the physician unparalleled control to treat each scar with individual precision. The laser pulses can be repeated and ‘stacked’ to penetrate even deeper in order to microscopically destroy the extent of the scarred tissue. The practitioner can also choose to use short, or long pulses, depending on the scar depth.
In addition to microscopic ablation of the scar itself, the laser also heats up the underlying tissue to boost collagen production and increase blood flow, which speeds up the healing process. New skin cells fill the scarred area with healthy, fresh skin while smoothing out the surface. In addition to reducing and eliminating the look of the scar itself, the boost in collagen also helps to tighten the undamaged skin around the scar, so you can enjoy the added perk of skin resurfacing at the same time.
Unlike harsh chemical peels, destructive acid, and painful excision surgeries, the iPixel Laser with the Harmony XL Pro system is virtually pain-free and there are very few minor side effects. The laser targets beneath the surface, so there’s no need for numbing, gels, or needles and it’s gentle enough to treat all areas of the body, including sensitive areas around the eye area, neck, chest, and hands. Wherever you have a scar or uneven skin texture, the iPixel laser is safe to treat it.
How many treatments are required to improve Acne scars and more?
The Harmony XL Pro iPixel laser treatment is safe for all skin types and can be administered year-round, so right now is the perfect time to treat the acne scars that you’ve been carrying around. Over the course of just 2 to 4 bi-monthly treatments, your scar will be dramatically reduced or vanish completely with long-lasting results.
