Mixto laser treatment is a cosmetic procedure used to improve the appearance of the skin and treating a number of age-related skincare concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, and other imperfections. As a specialized fractionated CO2 laser, the Mixto laser helps to resurface the skin and stimulate collagen production.
How Does the Mixto Laser Work?
During a Mixto laser treatment, the team at Bayside Dermatology uses a handheld device to deliver the laser energy to the skin. The laser creates microscopic channels in the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process and stimulates collagen production. The Mixto laser treatment is designed to be less invasive than traditional CO2 laser treatments, with fewer side effects and a much shorter recovery time.
Mixto Laser Procedure
The Mixto laser treatment can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, age spots, and acne scars. The treatment is performed in a healthcare provider’s office, and typically takes about 30 minutes to complete. Patients may experience some discomfort during the treatment, and may be given a local anesthetic or numbing cream to reduce any pain.
Minimal Side Effects & Downtime
While the Mixto laser treatment is minimally invasive and downtime and side effects are fairly minimal, some patients may experience slight redness, swelling, and mild discomfort in the treated area. These side effects typically resolve within a few days, and patients are able to return to normal activities within a week or two.
Is the Mixto Laser Right for You?
The Mixto laser is generally considered safe and effective, but it is important to work with a qualified dermatologist like Dr. Zuckerman to ensure safe and effective treatment. Patients with certain medical conditions, such as a history of skin cancer, may not be suitable candidates for the Mixto laser treatment. It is also important to discuss any potential risks and complications with Dr. Zuckerman and his team prior to undergoing the treatment.
The Mixto laser treatment is a popular and effective option for improving the appearance of the skin and reducing the signs of aging. With proper care and maintenance, the results of Mixto laser treatment can last for several years.
