I had my 1st pixel done last 3 weeks ago. I've noticed that my acne scarring got a little smoother. People around me noticed it as well. A week after that I'd began my microdermabrasion treatment which is a conjunction with the pixel. The lady was really nice and thorough. She had told me... READ MORE

I had pixel last Saturday @ 2pm. About 8 hours later, after the numbing cream wore off, I was in SEVERE pain, and my skin looks like a roasted peanut. Felt like 1000 fire ants all over my face. I was so swollen, it looks like I've had a nose job, weird. (My skin was pretty good before the... READ MORE

I am 44 years old, and I had my first Pixel treatment today. The clinic I went to was great. I am getting 5 altogether on my entire face for tone and texture, fine lines and big pores. My experience was that the treatment was painful. It feels like thin thin hot needle pinning your face.... READ MORE

The medspa I went to was great. I had a great treatment coordinator who set me up with a nice discount (normally $680 per treatment). Once you start Tx with Sona they give you everything 50% off for additional treatments, so that's pretty good. Today I did the Pixel treatment. It was less... READ MORE

During my first Pixel treatment, the technician held the laser directly on two separate spots, on my chin resulting in deep, large dimples, now permenent. During the second treatment, the laser gorged out a line across my cheek, resulting in uneven skin and the appearance of worse acne scarring... READ MORE

I am 2 weeks post Pixel CO2 laser resurfacing. I had originally researched active fx for some acne scarring on my upper cheeks and chin and to improve texture and some enlarged pores.A well known dermatologist and family friend had the Pixel CO2 said that it was similar to the other fractional...

I had my first pixel (erbium based) session last week for acne scars. The redness is still there on the scars, although its gone on rest of the face.My query is that how much time is required to get rid of the entire redness? How much time it takes to see the results? READ MORE

I had a pixel laser on my heavily wrinkled hands. I am 46 and in good health. According to all the websites and the doctor's office where I had the procedure done, my hands would return to normal within about 5-8 days. It has been a month and my hands are bright red with burn spots. It looks... READ MORE

I had my first Pixel procedure done on my full face and 1/2 neck 6 days ago. I've noticed immediate results in skin blotchiness, as well as some improvement on acne scars. It's still pretty early to comment on myself but I'm very happy so far with what I see. It was pretty uncomfortable to... READ MORE

It was uncomfortable but definitely tolerable during.First 24 hours were a nightmare. Woke up at 5:00... READ MORE

I've had moderately severe cystic acne with infections for 5 years since I was 17 and went through 3 courses of accutane. I was left with pretty bad scars on my forehead and right/left jawlines that just looks terrible on hard lighting because it casts a shadow. I've been looking to perform... READ MORE

I had Pixel Laser resurfacing done on 6/3, today is 6/8. My face is very swollen. Dr. prescribed DosPak 21. He assures me that even though mine is the "worst" swelling he has seen, it is not permanent. It was not a painful experience, although it really did burn like sunburn... READ MORE

I want to say that I am 38 and had cystic acne for years and years. Although my face does not break out now I was left with acne scarring on my cheeks and chin, and my overall texture of skin was not so good, it had literally little holes all over my face. I mean ALL OVER! The holes were 5... READ MORE
