FRAXEL® VS. MIXTO®
If your goal is to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars, chances are you’ve thought about getting a laser peel. But of the two main laser peels available, should you choose Fraxel® or Mixto®?
Fraxel® has had an extensive U.S. marketing campaign and is verbally well-known in the U.S., whereas its Italian competitor Mixto® is slowly gaining popularity nationally. But a marketing campaign is vastly different from delivering tangible results.
In this blog post, we’ll break down the nitty-gritty about Fraxel® vs. Mixto® so that you can decide which is the Beauty Blooper and which is the Beauty Allstar.*
