Laser Skin Resurfacing
TrueCare is proud to offer the most advanced laser skin resurfacing technology – the MiXto SX CO2 Fractional Laser – to help his patients achieve smoother, younger and more beautiful skin.
What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a skin rejuvenation technique that sends out brief pulses of high-energy light that are absorbed by the skin. That light is then changed into heat energy which destroys thin sections of damaged, wrinkled and imperfect skin, layer by layer. As the wounded area heals, brand new and undamaged skin emerges, achieving a smooth, supple and youthful appearance.
What are the benefits of the MiXto laser?
We use the MiXto laser for our laser skin resurfacing treatments for a number of reasons. To begin, it is more advanced and effective than other lasers on the market, mainly because it delivers better results in one 30-minute session than most other lasers can accomplish over a series of three treatments. In addition, it does so with less discomfort, downtime and cost.
What sets this laser apart is the way it combines the effectiveness of CO2 lasers with an innovative “quadrant” fractional technology and a more tightly focused beam. This allows the MiXto laser to deliver uniform tissue ablation to the dermis, causing immediate contraction and tissue tightening. It also stimulates the production of new collagen over time, ensuring the regeneration of undamaged, youthful and supple skin.
Does laser resurfacing hurt?
Due to our reputation for delivering among the best skin resurfacing the Inland Empire has available, most patients only experience very minimal discomfort, on par with that of a mild sunburn. To ensure your comfort and help you manage the pain, we will administer a topical anesthetic and oral Tylenol during the procedure.
The MiXto laser can safely and effectively treat skin imperfections on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands. Depending on your unique reasons for seeking treatment, your cosmetic outcomes will vary. However, here are just a few of the results that are possible when you undergo among the best laser skin resurfacing the Inland Empire has to offer:
- An immediate improvement of damaged skin.
- A beautiful, youthful glow.
- Tighter and firmer skin.
- Significant softening of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Removal of age spots and sun spots.
- New collagen production for up to one year following treatment.
Though the results will begin to emerge immediately after the procedure with visible skin tightening, the full benefits will become apparent once the skin has healed completely. In addition, new results will continue to emerge for up to a year as regenerated collagen continues to plump the skin.
