Professional Mixto CO2 Treatments In Milwaukee
Mixto CO2 Fractional Laser Treatment Smoothes Acne Scars and Wrinkles
Severe acne scarring is very common for anyone who has experienced long term acne. Acne scars can be difficult to treat because there is so much variability in their size, shape and texture. Often treatment for this type of scarring will involve a range of different laser treatments, including the mixto fractional CO2 laser treatment. During the treatment, the esthetician will apply topical anesthetic to your skin before using the laser energy to vaporize the most superficial layers of the skin. The treatment takes around 30 minutes from start to finish.
Benefits of Choosing the Mixto CO2 Fractional Laser Treatment
Aside from smoothing out acne scars, the mixto fractional CO2 laser will reduce wrinkles and fine lines, tighten the skin, stimulate collagen production and diminish pre-cancerous lesions. After just one procedure you'll notice considerable results; your skin will feel more toned and look younger. These results will continue to increase as collagen builds up in the skin over the following six months after your mixto fractional CO2 laser treatment.
Mixto CO2 Laser Treatment Recovery & Side Effects
One of the best features of the mixto laser treatment is that it requires very little downtime compared to other types of laser treatments. The mixto CO2 laser will leave the skin feeling and looking like it has been sunburned--with pain, mild swelling, itching and redness. Taking an ibuprofen will ease these symptoms, and at our spa we often provide an oral pain medication beforehand. Some patients take an antibiotic for up to a week after the treatment.
