MiXto Co2 laser has revolutionized my practice with respect to skin rejuvenation. Previously, I could only perform this procedure in the operating room under general anesthesia. But today, I can help patients usually with just one treatment in the office with topical anesthesia and a mild sedative just to calm the nerves a bit. With Mixto Co2 laser, I have seen my patients receive results that met and often surpassed their hopes!
How is this laser different? C02 is a Carbon Dioxide laser that has been around for more than 25 years for the correction of fine and deep wrinkles, scars, sun damage and pigmentation. The CO2 laser heats up and vaporizes the top layer (epidermis) of the skin to shrink and smooth the damaged skin.
This change occurs immediately, in front of my eyes, while I perform the procedure. Patients then go through a healing process that takes typically 5-7 days and then see further tightening as a result of collagen production up to the next 6 months. This is your own collagen to keep, which is what gives you the preventive effect of slowing the aging process.
Mixto CO2 laser is FDA approved and was invented in Italy. It uses a unique fractional technology which controls the depth and the percentage of the treated skin, providing more precise control. This leaves microscopic islands of healthy tissue to speed recovery. It also allows enough cooling time between each beam, which makes the procedure more tolerable and decreases both the healing time and the side effects.
