(Acne Scar / Resurfacing Laser)
PIXEL™ PRO is an Erbium:YAG laser. This means that it generates the laser beam from an Erbium gas medium. It is a FRACTIONAL ABLATIVE laser from the internationally-renowned ALMA LASERS. Hence, it is known as “Pixel Laser” because pre-programmed laser energy passes through the patented Pixel micro optics lens array and penetrates the skin, affecting just 15-20 percent of the surface, in a pixelated manner.
It creates multiple ablative channels at the pixel spots using heat – a micro-injury – without disturbing the surrounding tissue. Those micro-injured areas start the process of healing and the untreated areas in between those ‘pixels’ act as a reservoir for rapid restoration.
As collagen remodels, a fresher, more youthful appearance of the skin develops.
The Knightsbridge Clinic combines Pixel Pro Laser with highly concentrated Stem Cell Serums to the best synergistic effect, as the treated micro-channels of the skin are hungry for growth factors and proteins. Stem cell serums are rich in those. With use of the Stem Cell Serums, the downtime is kept to a minimum and the skin-regeneration results are amplified too. Although not cheap, Stem Cell Serums are a must-use after Pixel Pro Laser.
This can be used to treat acne scars, rough skin, big open pores and also for rejuvenation of dull, aging, wrinkled, loose skin. It also works on pigments, by causing the outer layers to peel off and lightening the pigments.

Why use Pixel Pro instead of a Fractional CO2 Laser?
We had used the fractional CO2 Laser before and most patients find it difficult to withstand the pain during the procedure (even with numbing cream being applied for 1 hour and the lowest energy used). Most of them end up crying and never want to do it again. If similar results can be achieved via a less painful method, then Pixel Pro is THE ONE acne scar laser you must take advantage of.
Is Pixel Pro new in the market? Can I do the treatment without numbing cream?
Pixel Pro is a newer technology compared to the fractional CO2 Laser, and its laser delivery is highly improved.
Pixel Pro is like a graceful ballet dancer – refined and elegant in its delivery, yet not compromising on the results. The gentleness of the procedure allows delicate areas such as the neck, chest and hands to be treated as safely as the face with little risk of infection. There is little downtime or discomfort and it is tolerable even WITHOUT numbing cream! With numbing cream, the treatment process is a walk in the park.
What would I expect after a session of Pixel Pro Laser?
The whole process takes just 15 minutes (not including the numbing cream period of 20minutes) and there would be 1 to 2 days of skin redness, akin to a sunburn. Scabbing of the pixels will form and then drop off on the 3rd to 4th day, to reveal fresher, smoother, firmer skin. Patients are advised to perform this laser when they have at least 2 off days from work. Korean laser recovery, moisturising and sun-protect creams will be prescribed as well to ensure the best results from Pixel Pro.
For patients prone to pigment-formation, Crystal Tomato and Heliocare oral sunblock will be prescribed as well.
How do you know that the Pixel Pro Laser is better than the Fractional CO2 Laser? You only have the Pixel Pro Laser
Our patients who have had Pixel treatment all return without fail for the second or third session, because of the minimal discomfort and low downtime, coupled with good results. The best thing is, it is suitable for all skin types (even dark skinned individuals)! It is also extremely versatile – the energy can be tailored accordingly to give the patient between 1-7 days of downtime – depending on the patient’s schedule off work
