Fractional Co2 Laser
Pix Scan is a carbon dioxide surgical laser that incorporates a special scanner that fractionalizes the light beam emitted by the laser so that it only partially hits the skin in hundreds of microscopic points leaving the largest part of the epidermis unaltered. The fractionalized laser beam acts by burning minute portions of tissue in depth but leaving the surface skin intact. This allows considerably reducing healing time and resuming normal activities after the operation. The beam emitted, split into a punctiform matrix by the scanner, produces miniscule punctures in depth causing denaturation of collagen and consequent production of fibroblasts, i.e. cells that form new collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin. That is why the treatment rejuvenates and improves the skin tissue without attacking the surface skin. It is hence the most suitable instrument for resurfacing of acne scars, melasma, hyperpigmentation and surgical scars.
