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.
Laser resurfacing with the CO2 laser is a remarkable procedure which has the potential for taking many years off the age of your skin. It is used to smooth out and even eliminate facial wrinkles, reduce acne scarring, and actually tighten the skin. It is particularly effective for lines around the mouth and the eyelids.
Long-lasting results can be obtained. Recovery time is 7 to 10 days. During this time, most patients are comfortable to work from home and can exercise and do housework, but would not wish to appear in public. If only the eyelid area is treated, patients can go out in public to complete minor chores and hide the healing areas with sunglasses. After 10 days, women can wear makeup to cover up your skin which will still be pink to slightly red.
