Wrinkles age the skin and make you look older, but you can reduce wrinkles and rejuvenate the face with laser skin resurfacing (click here). The procedure also improves the tone and texture of the skin, and slows the signs of aging. There are several lasers on the market now being used for skin rejuvenation, but the fractional lasers are among the most effective, especially advanced models like the Mixto Fractional CO2 laser.
Mixto Fractional CO 2 Laser
At the Cobb Wellness and Aesthetics in Roswell, GA, Dr. Kelley uses the Mixto CO2 fractional laser to treat wrinkles. The Mixto CO2 can be used on areas such as the face, chest, and arms, and is suitable for all skin types. In addition to wrinkle reduction, the Mixto fractional CO2 laser can also tighten the skin, correct sun damage, blend in scars, and treat stretch marks.
How it works
Mixto fractional CO2 laser delivers a matrix of tiny beams that penetrate the skin, and treat the underlying tissue. The physician will make about 2 passes over each area of the skin being treated, but this can vary depending on the desired results. The untreated skin that surrounds the areas hit by the laser, help the treated areas to heal faster, and this generally reduces the downtime.
It generally requires 2 to 4 treatments with Mixto CO2 to achieve optimal results, but this will depend on the specific skin issue being treated. Most patients notice a significant improvement after only one session.
The Mixto fractional CO2 laser produces impressive results, which are superior to those achieved with similar minimally ablative laser technologies. It not only reduces wrinkles, but there are other benefits to be gained from using Mixto CO2 for laser skin resurfacing such as a brighter complexion, and firmer skin.
