Weighing the Costs Vs. Benefits of New Technology for Laser Skin Resurfacing
A new fractional laser technology provides "gold standard" clinical results, expedites cosmetic and general practice treatment while boosting profitability...by Dr. Mark Kofford, M.D., Ph.D. and Dr. Jeannine Wills-Kofford, owner-operators of the Kofford Clinic and Riviera Laser Studios in Dana Point, California.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
The latest technological breakthrough has resolved many of the issues associated with the preceding generation of lasers. The fractional CO2 laser by Lasering, USA, the MIXTO, is a hybrid which incorporates the latest technology for skin rejuvenation. It allows maximal benefits consistent with minimal discomfort, minimal anesthesia and minimal recovery. In addition, it treats many disorders associated with skin aging stimulating the formation of new skin collagen, tightening of the skin and removal of the signs of aging including pigmentation disorders and the “leathery” look.
MiXto SX® Laser Versatility
I do not think any fractional CO2 Laser can do more than the MiXto SX. The MiXto SX gives consistent results on brown age spots and is versatile enough to be used on the face, neck, hands, and arms.
MiXto SX® Individualization
I find in using the MiXto that I can easily individualize treatments to match the patient’s desired results and their tolerable down-time. The settings are easily changed for a deeper ablation or more/less heat deposition. Most of my cases require only one or two treatments, depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment parameters. This includes the hard to treat acne scars.
MiXto is Very Good New Technology
With more than 30 years in the active practice of cosmetic surgery, I have certainly seen technology come and go – some good and some bad. The MiXto fractional CO2 belongs in the very good new technology category for several reasons.
Dr. Anna Rosinska very pleased with her MiXto Laser
I've been have been very pleased with my recent purchase of MiXto SX Micro fractional CO2 laser. My Laser Technician and I received very detailed training. We also received great customer support and security of anytime access to the trainer on his cell phone! The effective marketing campaign was included and has brought in several new patients.
Dr. John Shega says the MiXto Laser is Revolutionary
In my 15 plus years in treating skin with lasers I have found the MiXto laser to be the best for skin resurfacing. The advantage of this laser is there is less down time allowing patients to get back to their busy life styles within one week of treatment. This is accomplished by using thousands of micro beams penetrating the epidermis leaving the skin rejuvenated and over time noticeably tighter. The MiXto laser is revolutionary because it can erase years from the face with only one-week of recovery with minimal risk. Patients who have deep wrinkles, acne scars, or age spots benefit the most. The Mixto can also be used to treat surgical and traumatic scars, melasma and stretch marks.
Dr. James Newman likes the MiXto Laser for it's Customization Options
I choose the MiXto laser for my patients because it offers both shallow and deep energy delivery allowing me to customize treatments for each patient. The unique pattern delivery maximizes safety and comfort so that patients can have the treatment with just local anesthesia. Coupling the Mixto resurfacing with minimally invasive plastic surgery (as in the case example) gives patients a remarkable result without the expense or downtime of traditional plastic surgery.
Dr. Sachit Shah likes the MiXto Laser for it's Downtime Flexibility
Mixto works for my patients as it allows me to tailor the exact amount of down time for the patient. I can do one treatment or multiple treatments over a period of time. 180 micron and the 300 micron handpiece allows me the versatility for tailoring for treatment further. Having no consumables allows me to offer cost effective treatments to my patients.
Dr. Gardner likes the MiXto for Facial Rejuvenation
I am a dermatologic cosmetic surgeon located in the Atlanta area and have been performing laser surgery for many years. The Mixto fractional CO2 laser has been the best laser I have used for facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Ellis loves the MiXto for Skin Rejuvenation
I love my MiXto sx. It’s easy to use, reliable and gives fantastic results that make my patients happy. I use it primarily in the fractionated mode for skin rejuvenation.
