Will Erase Acne Scars
Mixto fractional laser resurfacing works beautifully to help reduce and erase scarring caused by acne. This CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser helps to deliver a precise matrix of Microspots that penetrate to the dermis and stimulate the formation of new collagen. At the same time, immediate shrinkage of damaged tissue is achieved.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is MiXto SX Micro Fractional C02?
C02 is a carbon Dioxide laser that has been used for more than 25 years in the Aesthetic industry for treatment of conditions such as fine and deep wrinkles, scars of various origin, uneven pigmentation and dilated pores. When the C02 beam of light comes in contact with the epidermis it heats and vaporizes the skin tissue, instantly removing the superficial layers of the skin, scars and wrinkles while smoothing out the surface of the skin. The skin remodeling occurs with new skin and collagen growth. MiXto SX stands for the Mixture between C02 energy and fractional resurfacing, the SX stand for surgical because the Laser can also be used to make a very clean incision without bleeding.
2. How does it work?
The MiXto SX gives the Physician more control to regulate the depth of penetration and the amount of heat delivered by the beam. The high speed scanner, driven by a patented pending algorithm divides the treatment area into four quadrants or �fractions� and skips the beam from quadrant to quadrant so that each strike is separated by the longest possible interval. This process is repeated until the entire area is treated. Dividing energy this way allows maximum time for thermal cooling of the tissue, less pain for the patient and faster recovery! Compared to traditional resurfacing of the past this is a big step in technology for the patient and the physician!
3. How is this different than other laser treatments?
The MiXto delivers more results in a 30-minute treatment than competitors can accomplish in 3 treatments for less discomfort, downtime and cost.
4. Does it hurt?
For most patients we apply topical anesthetic and oral tylenol then they can drive themselves home. The discomfort is similar to bad sunburn.
5. What are the risks?
Erythema (redness of skin); the laser-treated areas have a distinctive redness representing increased blood flow due to the growth of the superficial tissue and collagen. It will gradually fade during the first few days. Inflammation (swelling); Treatment with the MiXto System presents a minimal amount of swelling that can last up to 24 hours. Hyperpigmentation (tanning); This is presented after the third day of the procedure but then begins to shed and reveal younger healthy looking skin. A personal interview and clinical examination will be conducted to obtain relevant facts about your medical and dermatologic history, and any medications you are currently taking or have taken in the past. If you are prone to cold sores, you need to ask your doctor for an antivirius prescription before the treatment. Fractional Treatment with the MiXto SX has been proven safe for the face, neck, chest and hands.
6. How long is recovery?
Most patients are ready to go back to work the next day, but it depends on the patient and their lifestyle. Typical downtime is 3-5 days.
7. What is the recovery like?
The patient is red and can be swollen the next day. On the second, third and fourth day the patient is peeling and can experience a little itchiness typical to a sunburn.
8. When do you see the results?
Right away! When we are doing the procedure you can immediately see the skin contract and shrink. The patient will really see the benefits by the time the skin is completely peeled and will continue to see results for up to six months with new collagen regeneration that �plumps� up the skin.
9. Who is the best candidate for this procedure?
There are three separate groups the MiXto applies to, the younger patient with severe acne scars, the middle-aged patient with wrinkles and age spots and the older patient with wrinkles, age spots and pre-cancerous lesions.
10. How many treatments are needed?
In most cases only one, but for deeper wrinkles and acne scars two or more treatments.
11. Is it just for the face or can it be used on other areas of the body?
It is most commonly used on the face but can be used on neck, chest, arms and hands.
12. Is the treatment expensive?
The new technology has actually brought the price down without the compromising the results.
I had the pleasure of being treated by the Mixto laser last year and what a great laser! About 10 years ago I underwent CO2 full face laser resurfacing for acne scarring and sun damage (I lived on a boat for 4 years and am a redhead!). I took care of my skin from that day on but one can expect to not get any sun exposure and discoloration�s over time. I needed a refresher!
So I underwent the Mixto laser. I wanted to get a refreshed look, tighten up my skin, and get more even skin tones. It was such a breeze compared to traditional CO2 (which, by the way, I don't regret getting since my skin was such a mess). But I didn't need that aggressive treatment again! I am happy I chose the Mixto. It gave me results with little discomfort, without oozing and without much downtime. I'd recommend the Mixto to anyone! It's relatively painless and my physician told me it is extremely easy to use which made me even more confident in it's safety. Mixto is the way to go!
