Pixel Co2 Fractionated Skin Resurfacing by Alma. As we age, the tone and texture of our skin changes. Fine lines around our eyes and mouth as well as forehead wrinkles begin to appear. On top of that, age spots and blemishes may develop, causing the texture of our skin to appear coarse and uneven. CO2 is the gold standard for a variety of skin issues including improving overall skin tone, elasticity, texture, superficial pigmentation, acne scarring and pore size. Skin resurfacing treatments are safe, effective and are suitable for most skin types. Patient downtime varies, depending on the condition being treated, but it is usually about a week. Patients can choose a light treatment with a shorter recovery time, or to have a stronger procedure to achieve long lasting anti-aging results.
