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.

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.
