Fractional & Traditional Laser
Laser resurfacing treats skin conditions associated with aging and an active lifestyle. The MicroLaser Peel™ is an intra-epidermal laser peel that precisely ablates a specific depth of skin. The procedure is individually tailored to the nature of the condition to be corrected. When we look at the face, what we are looking for is uniformity from a beauty standpoint of coloration and texture. When we lose that uniformity, we lose some of that beauty.
At The Medical Spa, we believe the most uniform results can be delivered using the highest laser resurfacing technology. Skin conditions such as wrinkles, scars, acne scars, keratoses, pigmentary problems (redness/brownness), texture problems, and enlarged pores can be successfully treated with laser resurfacing. A MicroLaser Peel™ can remove the entire outer layer of skin and is therefore very different from microdermabrasion or chemical peels. Laser resurfacing results in the removal of fine lines, sun damage, wrinkles and acne scarring to a much more uniform depth and result.
The MiXto SX Fractional CO2 laser is a revolutionary treatment for skin rejuvenation that makes it possible for you to have healthy, younger looking skin with minimal post treatment down time. A single treatment can show significant improvement in skin texture and color while softening wrinkles. The MiXto SX delivers a therapeutic matrix of tiny beams of light energy (each about the size of a hair) to the top and mid layers of the skin with minimal discomfort. This results in immediate shrinkage of damaged skin, softening of fine lines and wrinkles, removal of age spots and sun spots, and new collagen production. *
Fractional means that only a fraction of the skin surface is exposed to the laser beam, leaving untreated skin around each micro spot. This promotes fast natural healing and a short recovery time. The beneficial effects of the laser expands under the skin surface to stimulate new collagen production across the entire area. This innovative technology minimizes discomfort during treatment, so that for most patients only a mild topical anesthetic is necessary.*
