Pixel 2940 Er:YAG
Use Pixel® for fractional ablative skin resurfacing.
The Pixel® 2940 Er:YAG handpiece provides a safe and effective treatment for aged and photo-damaged skin with no patient downtime, and no gel or consumables required.
The Pixel 2940 represents the best of both worlds for skin resurfacing: it combines the proven effectiveness of an ablative approach with the patient comfort level and convenience of a non-ablative approach.
Outstanding results, lower risks
The Pixel 2940 Er:YAG module delivers results on par with ablative lasers, but it limits the possible side effects of ablative treatments such as hypo- or hyperpigmentation, post-operative infection, swelling, erythema or edema. In addition, the Pixel 2940 can be used on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands - a much wider scope than the traditional ablative technologies.
Pixel 2940 improves the quality and texture of the dermis while it stimulates collagen regeneration. Skin resurfacing is a gradual process that happens over several treatments. Treatments are fast, thanks to the large spot size and high 2-Hz repetition rate.
Because re-epithelialization occurs quite quickly in the treatment zone, the risk of infection is reduced significantly from previous conventional treatment methods. Recommended applications include:
- Skin resurfacing
- Laser peeling
- Rhytids and fine lines
Pixel handpiece, how it works
A preprogrammed laser beam passes through the patented Pixel® micro optics lens and penetrates the skin. It creates an ablative and thermal effect at the pixel area - a micro-injury - without disturbing the surrounding tissue. Those micro-injured areas start the process of healing as collagen remodels, skin tightens and the skin texture improves.
With the Pixel 2940, the ablation zone is 11 x 11 mm in size, with a penetration depth of 20-50 microns. The module operator can decide between 49 to 81 pixels, with the size of the ablation dots for each 11 x 11 mm spot set at either 7x7 pixels or 9x9 pixels. In the 49 pattern (7 x 7mm), the energy is split between fewer pixels, so each pixel receives more energy and the depth of penetration is higher.
The patient experience with the Pixel 2940
Patients will find the skin around the treatment area feeling firmer and tighter, with a smoother surface texture. They will usually not need analgesics or pain medication with the Pixel 2940, and they can often return to work immediately after treatment.
