$550 + tax per pixel treatment I just had my second pixel on aug 25th, 3 days ago. I have each treatment 6 weeks apart to be safe. First one was on 7/15, it took at least 10-14 days to see improvement for the first time. First pixel, I had 7x7, 900 setting, one pass, 2 stacks on scars. Second time was still 7x7, 900 setting, but 2 passes, 2 stacks on scars. I am planning to have 3 pixels, next time I will tell technician to go more aggressive. Then I will take a break after the third pixel for a few months to see how skin heals since improvement continues at least 4 months after last treatment. Then decide if I will go back for more or not based on the result ( I have mild acne scars)
Since it's been only 6 weeks from my first treatment, and 3 days from my second treatment, I only see maybe 10-20% improvement, my mom told me around 30% improvement. I was told by my technician it will take at least 2 months from first treatment to see a significant improvement.
Pain level is like 5 out of 10 with numbing cream, please do ask for numbing cream, it helps a LOT, I don't think I can do it with the cream. It takes 3 days to look normal(slight redness, most flaking gone), 5 days for full recovery without any flaking. During treatment feels like rubber band snapping on face, burning smells. After treatment, feels like needle sensation on wounds. Second time hurts less, as research shows subsequent treatments requires less downtime, I do agree on that.
I really expect to have better significant improvement one month after this second pixel, since it's the second treatment with more passes and 2 1/2 months after first treatment. Waiting makes me anxious and impatient.
