Most Harmony iPixel Laser resurfacing treatments take around 30 - 60 minutes.
Usually, 3 - 6 treatments are required to achieve optimum results and we would recommend that these are spaced 4 - 6 weeks apart.
For acne sufferers, extensive breakouts and open wounds can’t be treated with the Harmony iPixel Laser. We can however recommend other suitable treatments that deliver impressive improvements for problem skin.

Pre & Post Treatment Care
You will require a patch test and consultation at least 24 hours prior to your first treatment.
Before you leave SkinSpirit we will apply some soothing cream to keep your skin as comfortable and protected as possible.
Following your treatment, you will experience some puffiness and redness, not dissimilar to a mild sunburn. Only the treated areas will be affected. You may feel some mild soreness or stinging.
Some very small dots will appear where the laser has been applied to the skin and these usually last around 5 days post-treatment. These are not visible to the naked eye, but you will be able to feel them. Please avoid touching your skin as much as possible.
As these tiny marks heel, they will form micro scabs which will then be shed. Keeping your skin well moisturised will help and we can prescribe the most suitable products to help the healing process. We recommend you use a good quality SPF to protect your skin at all times, but especially following a laser treatment.
