What is the Difference Between Pixel Laser and Fractional Laser Treatments?

I saw these treatments (Pixel Laser Treatment & Fractional Laser Treatment) online and I could not figure out the difference between them. I want to know the difference so I can make a more informed choice for my skin treatment. Thank you.

Pixel Laser Treatment is a subsidiary of Fractional Laser Treatment. In this context, meaning that Pixel Laser Treatment falls under the broader category of Fractional Laser Treatments. Fractional Laser Treatment is a general term that encompasses various laser technologies and methods designed to treat the skin by creating microscopic columns of thermal damage to induce healing and rejuvenation. Pixel Laser Treatment is a specific type of fractional laser technology that applies this principle using a particular pattern or method of delivery.

While looking online, I found that both utilize the principle of creating micro-injuries in the skin to stimulate the body's natural healing process, which involves new collagen production and skin cell regeneration. The key difference lies in the branding and specific technology used for Pixel Laser Treatment, but fundamentally, it operates under the broader umbrella of fractional laser technology.

Pixel is a revolutionary non-invasive fractional laser treatment that can transform the appearance of your skin, combatting many signs of aging as well as other cosmetic imperfections that could be affecting your confidence and self-esteem. It is a subsidiary trademarked method that falls under the fractional laser category. So you could say that Pixel laser is a type of fractional laser treatment, specifically used for issues deeper in the skin, since the new technology has a higher penetration capability.
