Fractional Laser — How I Treat Myself

Fractional Laser - Neu Look Med Spa

Many of my patients frequently ask me about how I treat myself. I’m a big fan of Fractional Laser Treatment because there is no downtime, no puffiness, and no pinkness — in fact, the image you see is me immediately after treating myself.

Almost all of my new patients are surprised when they find out that it’s actually relatively painless too. If you’re experiencing a loss of skin elasticity, discoloration, or you’d like to learn more about fractional, please give us a call!

Fractional CO2 Laser

The MiXto SX® is the latest technology in micro fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing which can be used on all skin types for laser skin treatments. The MiXto Laser treats the face, neck, chest, hands and arms and delivers more results in a 30-minute treatment than other non-ablative technologies can accomplish in 3 treatments with less discomfort, downtime and cost.

The MiXto technology allows for a variety of uses. It allows maximal benefits consistent with minimal discomfort, minimal anesthesia and minimal recovery. In addition, it treats many disorders associated with skin-aging while forming new skin collagen, tightening of the skin and removal of the signs of aging.

Testimony of actual Mixto patient: “Until this procedure, there was not a cosmetic treatment I could find that made me this happy! The fractional CO2 laser not only erased my brown spots, uneven skin tone, and wrinkles, it also significantly improved the tightness and texture of my skin. The treatment took years of sun damage off my face, allowing me to go without makeup and look more youthful with an even skin tone.”
