This versatility maximizes precision and treatment results while minimizing unnecessary tissue damage.

What is Pixel CO2 Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing and what is it used for?

Pixel CO2 Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing precisely removes outer layers of damaged skin to reveal the underlying skin which is softer, smoother, and younger looking.  It is ideal for the treatment of enlarged pores, skin laxity and texture, acne scars, skin discoloration and brown spots, and sun damaged skin.  Patients experience skin tightening, reduced wrinkles and fine lines, softening of deeper frown lines and wrinkles, noticeable improved skin tone and textures, and stimulated collagen formation.

How long is each treatment?  How many treatments will I need?

The appointment time for a Pixel CO2 treatment is around two hours.  You come in to sign consents, take before pictures and then sit with a topical numbing agent for about an hour.  After that, the procedure itself is very quick.  Depending on the area being treated it is usually over in twenty minutes. Typically a single treatment is all that is needed, however some decide to repeat this treatment in a year or two.

Is Pixel CO2 Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing painful?

Most patients say they feel heat similar to a sunburn. A topical numbing agent will be used prior to the procedure to minimize any discomfort.

What can I expect before treatment?

Prior to the day of your treatment your laser provider will discuss with you if there are any necessary products to start before and if there are any medications you may have to stop for a brief period.  On the day of your treatment you will have a topical numbing agent applied to the treatment area that will take full effect in an hour after application.  If the eyelids are being treated, numbing eye drops will be instilled along with protective corneal shields (steel contacts).  

What can I expect after treatment?

During the consultation your laser provider will go over all of your post care instructions and what to expect after your treatment.  Immediately after the procedure your face will feel hot like a sunburn, however the topical numbing cream will take effect again and work for another hour or two.  Cold compresses are applied to your skin along with a post laser balm. 

Wouldn’t it be great if we could take fat from where we don’t want it and use to restore the vibrant look of our youth? BeautiFill makes it possible.

ABOUT:

Our volume changes as we age – As our skin loses its natural structure, we may notice less volume in our face, hands, and other places. Plus we often end up with a little too much volume where we don’t want it!

BeautiFill uses safe laser technology – BeautiFill uses safe laser technology, clinically proven to gently remove live fat cells from places you don’t want it, then uses those same fat cells to fill the areas where extra volume is needed, restoring balance.

Ask your doctor if BeautiFill is right for you – Reduce volume to restore volume in one simple in-office procedure. BeautiFill is the natural alternative to synthetic materials, with longer lasting results!

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the BeautiFill treatment work?

The BeautiFill procedure uses laser energy under the skin to gently loosen fat from problem areas such as the abdomen, hips, flanks, and thighs. The live harvested fat cells are then injected into areas where volume has been lost, including many facial areas and certain areas of the body such as the buttocks.

What’s the difference between BeautiFill versus other fat transfer procedures?

The crucial difference between BeautiFiill and other fat transfer methods is how the fat is harvested. Other fat harvesting methods were intended to destroy and/or discard fat, not preserve it for reimplantation.  BeautiFill uses a proprietary laser instrument designed to extract the highest quantity and quality of live fat cells for reimplantation. In a clinical study, the fat harvested patients reported greater than 90% fat cell viability. The higher percentage of live cells, the higher chance for cell survival following reimplantation.

How many treatments will be needed?

The transfer of fat cells can be performed in one treatment, and you can expect to see an immediate effect and difference right away. Most patients will see the improvement last for years.

Is the BeautiFill treatment painful?

No.  BeautiFill is an outpatient procedure performed completely awake and under local anesthetics which avoids traditionally associated with general anesthesia. In addition, BeautiFill’s laser energy provides the added benefit of less bruising and swelling often seen with other fat harvesting methods.

How long will the procedure take?

That will depend on the amount of volume you seek to remove and restore. Speak with your BeautiFill provider to personalize the procedure to your expectation.

Will I need to take time off after my BeautiFill treatment?

This depends on the amount of volume you seek to remove and restore. For smaller cases, such as full-face volumization, patients may experience a mild degree of swelling, bruising and soreness for 24-48 hours, none of which should prevent you from resuming daily activities the next day if desired.
