Total Rejuvenation and Mixto Fractional Co2

If you are considering skin rejuvenation treatments, learn more about Mixto Fractional C02.  This  resurfacing treatment works by literally vaporizing wrinkles, acne scars, and pores right off of your face, and even your hands.

Small dots of laser energy penetrate deep into the tissues to blast away the old and abnormal skin cells while stimulating new cell and collagen growth.

Watch this segment of San Diego Living where Dr. Tess not only talks about Mixto Fractional C02, but demonstrates it as well. And you’ll even see the amazing before-and-after of Dr. Tess’s patient, Patty – You won’t believe her real age!

Skin Care Questions and Answers

mixto fractional co2Are you connected to @drtessmauricio and @skinexpertsays in Twitter? If not, we’ve compiled a list of questions we’ve received recently and the answers to what may also address some of your skin care questions.

Q: What do you think about the co2 fractional treatment?
A: We offer the Mixto Fractional CO2. Definitely one of the best “bang for your buck” type treatments. If you can afford 1-2 weeks of downtime, you can look 10 years younger with this 1 treatment.

Q: How can I fade scarring on a budget? I get brown spots.
A: Microdermabrasion and light peels are great for people on a budget! We offer a great crystal peel with our esthetician.

Q: Regarding peels, how often would I need them? And should I use a hydroquinone cream in conjunction?
A: Treatment can be performed once every 4 weeks, or up to once every week depending on the type of peel. A hydroquinone cream can be used as well but a physician needs to give specific instructions on how to use the cream.

We posted: When washing, massage your face with circular motions. Don’t scrub. Over washing and scrubbing can cause skin to become irritated.
Q: What do you mean by scrubbing? I use apricot scrub would you recommend daily use of it? The brand I use is St.Ives.
A: Using a wash that’s designated as a scrub is different. But the point is don’t over scrub. There are better scrubs than others. St. Ives has large beads, the best scrubs have smaller rounded and smooth beads to not damage the skin.

Q: What do you think is the best single ingredient for anti-aging? Retinol?
A: Hard to choose just one because every ingredient has a specific purpose. Retinol is definitely a great long term anti-aging product.

Q: What’s the best cleanser for oily skin?
A: Any wash with glycolic acid and/or salicylic acid work great for oily skin. If you have moderate to severe acne it is important to be seen by a dermatologist because RX strength products are more effective than OTC products.

Q: Is a mole on your palm normal?
A: Well only a dermatologist can determine if the mole is normal. I suggest you see your dermatologist to check it out. Remember a skin exam is recommended every year!

Q: Laser hair removal is good, is there any side effect with that?
A: Laser Hair Removal can be life changing! With an experienced technician and good technology there is very little risk.
