The pixel laser is a fractionated Erbium laser, not a CO2. Erbium us a great way to resurface but is more technique dependent since the surgeon has to change the setting according to what the patient wants and needs. It causes less surrounding thermal damage than CO2 (less burn) but sometimes takes more than one treatment.
