MIXTO FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER SKIN REJUVENATION Atlanta
Testimonial for Mixto Laser
The Mixto Laser tightened my skin beautifully. I am 60 years old and had some sun damage with dark spots and wrinkles. I love the results. The downtime was almost nothing. The post procedure care was easy and it was enjoyable for me. There was discomfort during the procedure but the downtime was minimal. I was surprised that I didn’t have any blistering and that the peeling was light. I am very happy with my results. Susan G

Multiple passes or a single pass can be performed depending on the desired results and your ability to have downtime. This laser can be used to perform micro-peels with 2-3 days downtime. There will be a need for multiple micro-peels to be performed. Or the laser can be used to make multiple passes in an aggressive treatment which may result in downtime of 5-7 days.
