Repair Summer Sun Damage with the MiXto Pro Laser

For many people, summer means backyard barbecues and days at the beach. Unfortunately, it can also mean sun damage to your skin. The good news is facial imperfections may be a thing of the past with the help of the MiXto Pro laser.

 Here at Orchid Medical Spa in Edmonds, Washington, Dr. Shahriar Khezri and our highly skilled team provide a wide range of innovative anti-aging and aesthetic solutions to help you look and feel your best. 

Whether you're seeking procedures like Botox®, platelet-rich plasma, body sculpting, or more, all of our treatment methods are evidence-based, safe, and affordable. The MiXto Pro laser is a perfect example.

Sun damage

It can take just 15 minutes for the sun to harm your skin. Too much exposure to damaging UVA and UVB rays can cause everything from fine lines and wrinkles to brown spots and sagging skin. These unwelcome changes can also result from using a tanning bed.

MiXto Pro laser

Fortunately, the MiXto Pro laser can help reverse these skin imperfections quickly and easily. It can treat acne scars as well.

 Like many CO2 lasers, the MiXto Pro brings results by ablating the skin's outer layer. Unlike traditional lasers, however, it’s a fractional laser that uses thousands of small beams to treat a limited area of the skin. Because of this, the time needed for healing is greatly reduced. 

Traditional laser treatment typically requires weeks to months for the skin to heal; people who use the MiXto Pro laser can heal as quickly as 3-5 days depending on the problem being addressed and type of treatment setting used.

Treatment

The procedure can run from less than 30 minutes on the shorter side to two hours for people getting treatment on their whole face.

We begin by numbing your skin and once that takes effect, we guide the laser over the designated areas. The laser beams move deep into your skin to encourage your body to make new skin cells for a smoother, tighter, younger looking appearance.

Once the procedure is complete, we clean and bandage the area and you’re good to go home.

Results

The laser's heat can cause some skin tightening that’s visible right away, but the main improvement comes after 6-12 weeks when new collagen has formed. There may be some swelling and/or redness during the healing process depending on the depth of the treatment.

If you're tired of staring at dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles every time you look in the mirror, call our office today at 208-244-6553 or click here to request an appointment to find out if MiXto Pro laser treatment is right for you.
