Ablative laser resurfacing with the Mixto carbon dioxide laser is the most effective procedure for improving wrinkled, sun damaged skin and acne scars. This type of skin resurfacing involves removal (ablation) of the outer layers of skin which allows fresh, rejuvenated skin cells and collagen to form.*
The newest, state-of-the-art ablative lasers like the Mixto are fractionated. Fractionated ablative lasers remove skin in microscopic polka-dotted patterns, which allows for faster healing and less complications.
