Pixel Peels

Are you looking for a medical spa treatment that gives you more bang for your buck? Why not try a Pixel Peel? A Pixel Peel is a great option for those who want mega results in one procedure. It’s designed to allow deeper penetration of the “peel” into the skin without causing irritation to the surface for maximum effectiveness without prolonged downtime. 

What is included in a Pixel Peel? 

A Pixel Peel is actually two complementary facial treatments in one: 1) traditional microneedling followed by 2) TCA “No Peel” Peel. Individually, each treatment is great for stimulating collagen and elastin production which leads to glowing, more youthful looking skin. But together, these two can achieve maximum results in fewer sessions with very little downtime. A Pixel Peel is great for treating: 

  • Fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Acne scarring 
  • Sun damage, brown/age spots and hyperpigmentation 
  • Signs of aging 
  • Uneven skin tone and texture 


Microneedling triggers your skin’s repair response. We use precision needles to puncture microscopic wounds in your skin which stimulates your body to produce collagen and elastin. Better yet, these microscopic wounds create the perfect channel to help the following chemical peel penetrate even deeper into the skin’s layers.

TCA “No Peel” Peel 

A TCA “No Peel” Peel is a revolutionary alternative to traditional chemical peels that gives you the same results without the literal peeling. A TCA Peel uses a special blend of acids and hydrogen peroxide to penetrate through the top layer of skin to encourage elastin and collagen production without irritation.

Getting a Pixel Peel at Artemedica 

So what’s it like getting a Pixel Peel at Artemedica? One word: simple! Before your treatment begins, your clinician will first cleanse the area with a gentle cleanser. Once prepped, they will then apply a personalized compounded numbing cream to help ensure a pain-free experience.  

Then the microneedling portion of the treatment begins. You may feel some light pressure or prickling sensation, but these should be very minimal at best. 

Following that, your clinician will get to work applying the TCA Peel in thin layers until the desired level of skin tightening is achieved. Afterwards, the solution will be gently rinsed off with water and an enriching post-treatment serum will be delicately applied to help revitalize your natural skin barrier. 

Recovery and results 

After your appointment, skin will feel tight, red and might appear swollen for 3-4 days. You may also experience some flaking or peeling due to the microneedling. During this time, we ask our patients to avoid wearing makeup or using harsh, irritating skin care products. Your clinician will give you aftercare instructions that you should follow. After about 2-3 weeks, your skin will have fully recovered, and you should start to see noticeable results. 

Thanks to an increased stimulation in cellular regeneration, patients usually see: 

  • Diminished acne scarring and hyperpigmentation 
  • Smoother, healthier complexion 
  • Fewer, fainter fine lines and wrinkles 
  • More even skin tone and texture 

And because a Pixel Peel stimulates your body’s own natural regenerative properties (collagen and elastin production), results will continue to build with time. But for optimal results, we encourage patients to schedule a series of 3 treatments, at least 6 weeks apart.

Roderic Wallace Trusts Dr. Victor Lacombe

“Probably one of Dr. Lacombe’s greatest assets is his intuitive understanding of what it takes to create a very natural yet aesthetically pleasing result. In my case, a brow lift opened up my eyes, a subtle lift to the tip of my drooping nose dealt with the negative effects of gravity, a small chin implant balanced a newly sculpted neck and stronger jaw line… yes, a number of procedures done at one time, but oh so worth it in the long run. I can enthusiastically endorse Victor as one of the finest plastic surgeons around.*”
