The iPixel Erbium-YAG laser is a new generation of skin resurfacing lasers available at our boutique London clinic. This popular, highly effective non surgical treatment can dramatically alter the appearance of your skin, helping to reduce the signs of ageing and significantly improving texture, tone, pore size and any marks or scarring you may have on your skin. The laser resurfaces your skin by removing the top layer of old, damaged skin cells and allowing the healthy new skin below to come to the surface. If you are looking to rejuvenate your skin to achieve a healthy, glowing, youthful appearance, then this treatment is the perfect choice for you.

Is there any downtime after iPixel?
Immediately after treatment, there may be heat of moderate intensity and excessive redness and swelling at the treatment area. This may feel like a mild sunburn.

How does it work?
Unlike traditional laser dermabrasion (where the entire layer of the skin is removed) iPixel emits pixelated lasers which penetrate the skin and target the damaged areas to activate the repair process. The unaffected tissue between the controlled micro-wounds, start the process of healing and as collagen remodels, the skin tightens and texture improves.
To achieve and maintain the best possible effect, 3-4 treatments are recommended every 4-6 weeks.
Recovery period: 7-10 days
