How Does Fractional CO2 Work?
Developed during 25 years of scientific research, the technology uses a beam of mixed light that is filtered through CO2 and isolates specific wavelengths that comes into contact with the outer layer of skin. The light beam heats and vaporizes the skin tissue and instantly removes superficial layers, scars and wrinkles while smoothing out the surface of the skin. The resultant remodeling in the deeper layers stimulates new collagen growth which yields firmer and more glowing skin.
The miXto Micro Fractional CO2 Laser
In his practice, Oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Amiya Prasad uses the miXto SX Micro Fractional CO2 Laser, as it best suits busy clients who want healthy, younger looking skin in a short period of time with minimal discomfort. The miXto SX Fractional CO2 Laser uses a computerized pattern generator and a new, efficient scanning algorithm so that heat is evenly dispersed within the epidermis (superficial skin layer) while evenly treating damaged areas. This particular algorithm effectively reduces discomfort, the need for anesthesia, and recovery time. A single treatment can show dramatic improvement in skin texture and color and leave it smooth, firm and even-toned.
The Micro Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment may also be combined with other facial procedures such as a facelift, eyelift, rhinoplasty, or browlift. It can be a remarkable achievement to be able to do this single treatment procedure with a facelift. With Micro Fractional CO2 Laser, the whole face may be treated at the same time.
Benefits of Fractional CO2 Laser
The miXto SX Laser has been very successful in helping patients who are not ready for a facelift. Since the laser rejuvenates by improving the tone and luster of the skin, it can refresh the face by leveling out small to medium sized wrinkles. For patients who have had already undergone a facelift within the past few years, this laser treatment is a great way to obtain a refreshed look without having another surgical procedure.
Another very important application of laser therapy is to rejuvenate the hands to match the rejuvenated face. Take a look below to see whether miXto SX Fractional CO2 Laser is a good choice for you. In each photo, notice the remarkable changes in skin texture and smoothness after one treatment. Most Post procedure photos were taken after 3 to 6 months, but there are effects that are noticeable almost immediately.
Before making a decision, consider having a personal evaluation with New York facelift specialist and Oculofacial plastic surgeon Dr. Amiya Prasad to determine what is the most appropriate procedure(s) for your specific case.
