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.
