The hottest new cosmetic laser of the 2007 is also the coolest. Mixto Microresurfacing laser is the latest innovation in micro-fractional technology. It cleverly allows the skin to be treated with the most advanced laser technology for maximal impact and yet experience the least risk of injury, side effects and downtime.
Unlike traditional CO2 and other laser resurfacing technology, Mixto Microresurfacing combines a state-of-the-art fractional C02 technology and a computer scanner that increases time between adjacent pulses. What this means is that the gold standard CO2 laser is delivered in microlaser pulses in a manner like a "laser airbrush" effect.
The Mixto Microresurfacing laser combines the well-acknowledged gold-standard 10.6µm wavelength for skin renewal procedures with a high-speed scanner -- a revolutionary innovation in the medical laser technology. Using a proprietary algorithm, Mixto Microresurfacing laser is able to deliver a precise matrix of Microspots in Fractional mode. Furthermore, the CO2 laser wavelength is one of the few laser wavelengths that is able to penetrate to the deeper portions of the skin. This means that improvements and treatment to the deeper portions of the skin is possible unlike traditional laser technologies with only superficial benefits. It is therefore able to stimulate the formation of new collagen in the deeper layers resulting in deeper rejuvenation effects and treat stubborn skin conditions (such as deep scars and pigmentation) that were impossible with traditional non-ablative technologies. Most excitingly, immediate tightening of treated skin can be observed immediately after one session.
Overall, Mixto Microresurfacing laser is an excellent treatment for deep acne scars, wrinkles and sagging skin and stubborn pigmentation (such as melasma), allowing the patient to see drastic and clinically visible improvements in the shortest treatment cycle.
"What patients notice and love is the immediate tightening of the skin. This is due to the immediate contraction of collagen fibers which reduces wrinkles and loose skin. Skin laxity is noticeably improved even after one session," says Dr. Kenneth Lee, medical director of The Sloane Clinic, Singapore.
However, the benefits go beyond the immediate visible skin tightening. Apart from the immediate "lifting" effect of the skin, there is a secondary "skin rebirth" effect, which is the production of new collagen over the next 6-12 weeks.
Other benefits include improvements in skin texture and pigmentation. It can smoothen and even out skin imperfections and reduce pore size in the long run. It can even be effective on actinic keratoses (pre-cancerous cells that may be invisible to the naked eye), rendering it an effective way to prevent formation of these cancerous lesions on the predisposed individual.
Mixto Microresurfacing causes little downtime and redness because its micro-fractional laser pulses reduces skin injury. This makes the healing process much quicker and enables patients to get back to their normal life style sooner. Who says "no pain, no gain" obviously has not undergone a Mixto Microresurfacing treatment.
One session of Mixto Microresurfacing will set you back *US$650 but packages are available, and with this new and improved technology, this investment will mean less need for other expensive treatments to maintain your skin in the future.
Mixto Microresurfacing is available at The Sloane Clinic in Singapore. Dr. Kenneth Lee is a medical director of The Sloane Clinic and one of the pioneers in the use of microfractional CO2 treatment in Singapore.
