MiXto Fractional C02 Laser
The most recent, high tech advancement in skin resurfacing is the “Mixto SX” Microfractional CO2 Laser. Patients are seeing immediate skin tightening with amazing results in minimizing wrinkles, acne scars, sunspots and pores. One Mixto treatment shows dramatic results with very little discomfort and downtime. Treatment takes just 30-60 minutes.
The future is here with new technology in skin resurfacing with the MiXto SX®. Combining the effectiveness of Carbon Dioxide lasers long known to be the GOLD STANDARD in wrinkle removal with an innovative “quadrant” fractional technology and a more tightly focused beam, the MiXto SX® laser delivers uniform tissue ablation to the dermis causing immediate contraction and tissue tightening. A secondary effect is the production of new collagen over the next 6-12 weeks. The MiXto® treatment is giving all the benefits of traditional laser resurfacing, without general anesthesia, pain and prolonged downtime.
The benefits to the Patient are:
- Immediate shrinkage of damaged skin
- Minimal discomfort with topical anesthetic
- Minimal downtime (5 days)
- Softening of fine lines and wrinkles
- Removal of age and sun spots
- New collagen production for up to one year following treatment.
The MiXto SX® safely treats: Face, Neck, Chest, Arms and Hands
Vbeam Perfecta Laser for Blood Vessels
Dilated blood vessels on the face are similar to spider veins on the legs but usually are treated in an entirely different fashion. These small facial vessels respond nicely to laser or electrosurgery. The Vbeam Perfecta laser is considered to be the gold standard for the treatment of vascular conditions such as broken capillaries, diffuse redness, dilated facial veins, rosacea and angiomas. After treatment, there is usually redness for 24 hours. Women can wear makeup the day after and appear in public without problems.Treatments with the Vbeam Perfecta laser generally have little downtime, allowing patients to resume their normal activities immediately after leaving the office.
What precautions should I take before or after treatment?
Avoid sun exposure before and throughout treatments; SPF 30 or higher sunblock should be worn daily during this time. Post treatment care varies depending on condition and should be discussed with your practitioner.
Are the treatments painful?
Most patients report a sensation similar to mild sunburn after the treatment. During the treatment, skin receives additional protection through the patented Dynamic Cooling Device, which delivers a cooling burst of cryogen before the laser pulse is delivered. The DCD increases comfort during treatment and minimizes side effects such as redness.
Laser Hair Removal
Many men and women have areas of excess hair that they are constantly troubled with. Waxing, shaving, and depilatories work well to remove hair, but it always grows back. There are more successful and permanent ways to remove unwanted hair. Laser hair removal is a procedure in which a laser beam is used to destroy excess hair. Lasers can achieve “permanent” reduction of hair. This means that the amount of hair in the area can be reduced on a long-term basis. Patients who have laser surgery for hair removal can expect 5-9 treatments to achieve the best results.
