Cool Springs MD now offers a wide variety of lasers to service Middle Tennessee. At the request of our patients, Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing was added. With so many devices on the market, we studied the options thoroughly before selecting the best possible device. After looking at costs to patients and one-treatment results, we chose The MiXto Laser.
Hands down, The MiXto Laser offers the best results possible in just one treatment. In fact, MiXto has won the International Non-Surgical Enhancement Award for the last three years running! With technology constantly changing and devices always being added to the market, this is quite an accomplishment.
MiXto Laser Results
The MiXto is the gold standard of laser resurfacing. You’ll see more results after one MiXto treatment than competing devices are capable of delivering in two-to-three treatments. Patients can also expect less discomfort and faster recovery times. Compared to traditional CO2 lasers, it cuts the hard downtime in half! In a patient with severe damage or acne scarring, rather than skin with scabbing, crusting and oozing that requires 14 days to heal, we can treat the skin in such a way to need about 7 days of downtime.
Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing with MiXto
The MiXto removes 30-millionths of an inch of tissue at a time. It directs rays of energy into the dermis layer without injuring the epidermis. Unlike a heavy chemical peel or dermabrasion, there are non-ablated areas of skin left between the laser target sites promoting more rapid overall healing. The laser introduces a small amount of heat into the dermis so that it remodels and stimulates the fibroblast cells to produce more collagen and tighten the fibrils. Then, over a few days the top layer of skin will peel off like a bad sunburn which will leave a beautiful new smooth clean skin without brown spots or wrinkles. The results continue to evolve over the next 3 to 6 months. This fractional CO2 laser resurfacing device also gives a uniform, consistent result over chemical peels and dermabrasion procedures.
A high-quality skin care regimen should be used following this procedure in order to help maintain your new, healthy and vibrant skin. Results may include:
