Maeve Madden is a personal trainer and Instagram star who decided to use Pixel laster treatment to resurface her skin. She suffers from acne which left her face scarred.
Briefly.co.za learned that the Pixel laser treatment essentially burns the skin just enough so that it stimulates collagen production to repair the damaged skin, a bonus side effect of collagen is that it smooths out and tightens the skin.
The treatment consts $500 (R7000) and is said to cause minimal discomfort. The 29-year-old had a very different experience according to thisisinsider.com.
She could feel the laser on her skin and described it as tiny pin pricks but started to worry when she could see smoke and smell her skin burning. When the procedure was over her skin still felt like it was on fire.
The doctor said that that was normal but when she got home she was in agony and her face had turned a deep purple. The burning sensation lasted 2 days and on the fourth day her skin started to heal.
Madden's experience is rare as the procedure normally only causes minor discomfort.
Despite the pain Madden was delighted with results and has said that 70% of her scarring is gone as well as he pigmentation issues.
