Resurfacing with Mixto C02
CO2 is a carbon dioxide laser that has been used for more than 25 years in the aesthetic industry for treatment of skin conditions such as fine and coarse wrinkles, scars of various origin, uneven pigmentation and dilated pores. When the CO2 laser 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. This skin remodeling occurs with new skin and collagen growth for up to one year after treatment.
Fractional skin resurfacing is a revolutionary delivery system that allows the physician to treat 20-100% of the skin for much quicker healing than the traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment. Single treatments can show a significant improvement in skin texture and color.
What to expect
Erytherma (redness of the 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 2 days.
Inflammation (swelling); treatment with the MIXTO® system presents a minimal amount of swelling that can last 24-48 hours. After this, the skin will begin to peel, revealing new, smoother skin. Patients can expect 7-10 days of social downtime. It is our preference to provide our patients with a mild sedative prior to the procedure to ensure comfort throughout the treatment it is therefore necessary to arrange transportation to and from the clinic.

You can take no credit for beauty at sixteen. But if you are beautiful at sixty, it will be your soul's own doing.
