MiXto SX Micro Fractional Skin Laser




The future is here with the latest technology in skin resurfacing – the MiXto SX is a revolutionary new treatment for wrinkles, acne scarring, uneven damaged skin, brown spots and sun damage, and dull and loose skin.


MiXto SX can even be used to get rid of those scars and stretch marks that you thought were there for life!

The MiXto SX Micro Fractional Carbon Dioxide (CO2) laser is a safe and effective FDA-approved treatment for skin rejuvenation that makes it possible for you to have healthy, younger looking skin with minimal post treatment “social downtime”

MiXto SX is the treatment of choice for acne scars or signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, loose skin and uneven pigmentation. A single treatment can result in significant improvement in skin texture and color while dramatically softening wrinkles. MiXto’s patent pending scanning technology offers a safer and more comfortable treatment than virtually any other laser on the market.

The MiXto SX delivers a therapeutic matrix of tiny beams of light energy each about the size of the period at the end of a sentence. This energy is delivered to about 20% of the treated skin surface (fractional laser) targeting the top and mid layers of the skin with minimal discomfort. Advanced MiXto SX technology delivers powerful results without the harsh side effects and downtime of traditional CO2 resurfacing.


Patients typically see a 40% - 60% improvement in the quality of their skin! This dramatic improvement used to ONLY be attainable through surgery.


MiXto SX micro fractional therapy provides the benefits of traditional full surface CO2 laser treatment, without general anesthesia, pain and prolonged downtime.


Benefits of MiXto treatment include:


* May be safely used for ALL skin types

* Immediate shrinkage of damaged or loose skin

* Treatment of acne scarring and pitting

* Softening of fine lines and wrinkles

* Removal of age and sun spots

* Minimal “social downtime” (usually no more than 5-7 days)

* New collagen production for up to 1 year following treatment

* Lifting and tightening of the skin of the neck and jaw line

































Q – How long does it take to perform a procedure?

Usually about 20-40 minutes for the face, 15-20 minutes for the décolletage or arms and 10-15 minutes for the hands.


Q – How comfortable is the procedure?

This will depend on the pain treatment program the doctor prescribes. Generally speaking, during treatment you will experience the same feeling as a light finger flick to the cheek. Also, you may feel a gradual heating of the skin as the treatment progresses.


Q – How will I feel after treatment?

This will vary from patient to patient, but generally you will feel like you have a slight sunburn immediately after the treatment from about 30 minutes to 3 hours. Also, your skin may feel tight, especially around the lips.


Q – How long is the recovery process?

This again will vary from patient to patient and on depend as well as the level of treatment prescribed. On average, 5-7 days for the face and 7-10 days for the hands, décolletage, and arms.


Q – Will I need more than one treatment?

Most patients do not require a second treatment. If a second treatment is requested, wait 1-2 months. Gradual improvement will occur during this time period due to new collagen production and remodeling.


Q – How soon can I go outside after a treatment?

You could safely go outside immediately after treatment with a protective hat and eyewear. As soon as the erythema (redness) and edema (swelling) subside, you can apply makeup and sun screen. Keep in mind that once the new skin is revealed it should be treated as being sensitive to the sun. Every precaution should be taken to protect the new skin from repeated damage.


Q – Can I go back to work the same day?

Generally speaking, yes. However, everybody has their own level of “social downtime”. How to gauge this time depends on the strength of the MiXto treatment used and the medications prescribed after the procedure. As an example, patients receiving only a mild topical anesthetic (numbing cream) have returned to work immediately after treatment.
