Venus freeze vs pixel

Has anyone had both, what laser is better? I'm looking for firmer skin, I don't have any scars, very faint lines but I would like tighter skin on face and neck!

Venus freeze is not a laser, it uses radio waves to generate head under the skin. This heat is supposed to help tighten the skin. This is contrary to the fractional laser which acutally removes skin and generates heat at the same time to tighten skin. If you are willing to accept a handful of days for downtime, fractional laser is the way to go for sure.
