Turn Back the Clock With Mixto Fractional CO2

If you are looking for the biggest bang for your buck to take years off your skin, you must see this recent video from a 64 year old patient who recently underwent the Mixto Fractional CO2 treamtent.

This treatment is perfect if you are looking to have beautiful skin that is free of sunspots, wrinkles, or redness. The best part is that it looks so natural.

See some before and after photos below and see the improvement of her hands and face. She tell us how she loves the texture of her skin now and she even wears very little makeup, she feels so confident.

Repair Sun Damaged Skin: Remove Years of Damage in One Treatment

sun damageAre you starting to notice sun damage to your skin, and even wrinkles caused by over-exposure to the sun?

LED light therapy treatment evens out abnormal skin pigmentation, and softens wrinkles and fine lines, and is a common treatment offered by Estheticians at spas. However, even though helpful, the results are usually subtle and it can take a series of treatments before the results are significant.

If you are looking for a more noticeable improvement after a single treatment, the Mixto CO2 Laser is what I recommend, and my patients who have chosen this route are very happy with the results. Although you will need to be able to tolerate some downtime, the downtime is a lot less than the traditional CO2 laser treatments of the past, and the healing is much easier.

Fractional CO2 technology is a real breakthrough. For one thing it takes half the downtime to get the same results as the older CO2 treatments, and patients are able to have their Mixto procedure under local anesthesia and even drive themselves home after treatment.

Fraxel Re:Pair is a popular CO2 treatment that also treats moderate to severe wrinkles and sun damage, but the biggest difference between Mixto and Fraxel Re:Pair is that Mixto treatments cause minimal to no bleeding. As soon as the surgical removal of the tissue is accomplished, the Mixto laser cauterizes blood vessels so your skin doesn’t bleed or weep.

In my opinion the best “bang for your buck” type of treatment is the Mixto CO2 laser. You do one single treatment and remove years of sun damage and wrinkles!

But, if you don’t have the downtime, or if this treatment is not appropriate for your skin type, never fear. Fraxel Re:Store or Matrix RF are great alternatives. These treatments offer very little downtime compared to CO2 procedures. Although a series of treatments are required, time off work is not necessary and you can continue your regular activities.

Help for Damaged Skin

Are you looking for a solution to repair your damaged skin? Those with acne scars and sun-damage will be pleased to know about Fraxel Laser Treatments, which can target very specific areas of the skin with pinpoint accuracy. Fraxel is used to improve conditions present in superficial and deeper layers of the skin and the results are immediate. Such treatments include: skin resurfacing; treatment of wrinkles; and treatment of pigmented lesions, such as age spots, sun spots, and melasma. Fraxel is also great for removing scars resulting from acne, surgery, or trauma.

When thinking of how Fraxel works, imagine that you have a digital photograph that requires editing or a high-quality painting in need of restoration. Just as a damaged painting is delicately restored one area at a time, or a photographic image is altered, pixel by pixel, the Fraxel laser improves your appearance by affecting only a fraction of your skin at a time with thousands of microscopic laser spots. You can think of it like having digital photo-editing software for your skin!

“The unique ‘fractional’ approach is a huge step forward in providing significant cosmetic results more than any noninvasive laser treatment in the past can offer with minimal downtime,” says Dr. Tess Mauricio, Board Certified Dermatologist and owner of Scripps Ranch Dermatology and Cosmetic Center. “This advanced treatment is the first cosmetic laser to provide an effective, gradual procedure that creates new healthy tissue by stimulating the body to naturally repair aging and photo-damaged skin without significant risks or recovery time.”

After receiving Fraxel Laser Treatments, you skin will immediately feel softer and look smoother. The skin is tightened and pores are usually smaller. There is little to no down time. Those who receive the treatment can resume daily activities upon leaving the clinic. Swelling is minimal and should disappear in 2 days. The skin will have a pinkish tone for 3 to 5 days. For best results, we recommend a series of 5 treatments spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart. Call us for more details or to schedule a consultation.
