M.D. Laser Studio’s High Definition CO2 Fractional Resurfacing treatment improves pigmentation problems, reduces the appearance of pores, softens wrinkles, and diminishes acne scars and other textural irregularities.
This highly effective skin resurfacing treatment is accomplished with the MiXto SX® Laser in the hands of M.D. Laser Studio’s experienced medical staff. It combines the effectiveness of carbon dioxide lasers with innovative “quadrant” fractional technology and a more tightly focused beam, thus reducing damage to surrounding skin cells.
The MiXto CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser helps to deliver a precise matrix of microspots that penetrate to the dermis and stimulate the formation of new collagen. At the same time, immediate shrinkage of damaged tissue is achieved for a skin tightening effect.
High Definition CO2 Fractional Resurfacing provides amazing results without general anesthesia, and with less pain and downtime than traditional CO2 or erbium laser resurfacing. Depending on the areas to be treated, the procedure may take up to 3 to 4 hours. There will be significant redness and swelling, and the skin will peel as part of the healing process. Expect about 5 to 7 days of downtime. The laser has an additive effect, and many patients will notice greater improvement when they have multiple sessions.
